Need help configuring the best settings for my PC

Issue:
My 3ds died, so I’m setting up Citra so I can still play the games I’ve backed up. But every game I play has some serious slowdown, which shouldn’t be happening for my device (I think). My guess is I haven’t configured it properly, so I’ll need some help.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.
  • Please enable the Vsync option if you are experiencing screen tearing.
  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.
  • You are using open source system files for Mii data. This will appear as your Mii having broken graphics, but will not affect the stability of the game. In order to resolve this, please refer to our guide on dumping system files. https://citra-emu.org/wiki/dumping-system-archives-and-the-shared-fonts-from-a-3ds-console/

Changed those settings, but the slowdown got worse. Is there anything else I should try?

For Kid Icarus: Uprising, use Canary version (for now). You should see a big speed increase.

Also, please re-enable Hardware Shaders.

Thanks SO much. Frame drops are less of a problem now. :slight_smile:
