No games working now.(worked previously)


hello. i am new to these things. I have a problem regarding my citra emulator. earlier (for 2 days), the game(super mario 3d land) worked very fine(30 fps) without any lag.
i have tried everything but nothing seems to work.whenever i open a game, nothing happens (only a black screen appears). i have not updated citra. i also tried to reinstall citra and the rom but nothing is working now.
i have a weak pc but the game still worked smoothly previously

  • Operating System: windows 10
  • CPU: intel i3 3220 (3.30 ghz)
  • GPU: Intel hd 3000
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): nightly 1441
  • Game: pokemon X, super mario 3D Land

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

Try turn off Disk Shader Cache in the graphics options in Citra. It causes issues for some users with some games.


Worked for me, however, my situation was a little different. When i first installed citra and ran it, I had no problems running games. Maybe an hour later, i tried loading a game, and citra would just close, without saying it crashed or anything. Desperate, I started looking online for a possible solution. Yours happened to work, so thank you!

Thanks. Worked for me. Now the game runs again. :grinning:

Didn’t know it was that simple :joy:
