Newer Versions of Citra Experiencing Extreme Graphical Issues

Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
Should mention, not really looking for a solution right now, just thought I’d post a problem I’ve been having in case it helps y’all. So, little while ago, my computer’s hard drive crapped out after years of overwork, so had to replace the hard drive and obviously re-download Citra, re-upload all my ROMs, etc. Noticed that games that previously had no problems running on my system (Pokemon X and Pokemon Ultra Moon specifically) were having screen flickering and weird black textures/shader problems respectively; problem persisted with both Canary and Nightly. Pokemon X in particular, which I had played through two entire playthroughs without issue, was now suddenly running at 0.2 FPS, chugging along.

Tried updating my graphics drivers, fiddling with the graphics settings, all didn’t do much. Decided to download and roll back to Nightly 1866 (a version I remember working very well on my system from a few months back) and both games run smooth as butter with no noticeable issues. Not sure what exactly changed, but something in the newer updates isn’t playing well with my system.

Anyway, like I said, I don’t really need a solution right now - rolling back is working well enough for me, but figured should tell y’all about it, maybe y’all’ll find something that’ll fix it

Forgot to show a comparison - same enabled settings (at least, the ones that’re shared between the two versions), didn’t mess with the shader folder or anything like that, but the older version works just fine for me

Hi! Thanks for the report! We are aware of these issues and they should be fixed soon! :slight_smile:

No problem, hope it was of some help. Just downloaded the newest version (Citra Nightly 1917, haven’t tested with Canary yet), and while Pokemon Ultra Moon works well, I had to delete my shader cache for Pokemon X to even boot, crashing at the “loading shaders” part of initializing. It runs well now after having done that, though, not sure what happened

I would post the citra_log.txt, but I’ve since got it running successfully, so presumably that log is now deleted… my bad
