I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a human moderator to assist.

New update broke old save states. To access the old save state, you’ll need to load it on an older Citra build. However, since you said you have an in-game save file. All you need to do is load that. Which works the exact same as on the 3DS.

Where could i get a older build of citra?

thanks for the reply, how would i go getting an older version of citra? i have the file for an older version but i’m not sure how to go about getting it to work. when i try to open it using the “citra.exe” file in the folder an error pops up saying “the code execution cannot proceed because libss-1_1-x64__.dll was not found. reinstalling the program may fix this problem.”

All Citra builds can be found on our Github page:

For Nightly: Releases · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub
For Canary: Releases · citra-emu/citra-canary · GitHub

First off, run citra-qt(.exe), not citra(.exe). The qt one is Citra with a user interface. Secondly, that error tends to occur when you move the .exe out of the folder it should be in. Make sure to create a shortcut, don’t cut/copy and paste it somewhere else.
