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

  • Your GPU hardware only supports OpenGL version 3.1.0. Citra requires OpenGL 3.3.0 and above. https://citra-emu.org/wiki/faq/
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Intel HD 3000 only supports up to OpenGL 3.1 on Windows.

Your computer is due for an upgrade, that CPU is 7 years old now :stuck_out_tongue:
