Pokemon Alpha Sapphire screen turns black then does not respond

Whenever I launch Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, I can get it to work perfectly fine on the language select screen but the moment I select a language my screen will flicker black then stays that way. Eventually it just turns white.

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

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website. Support for Intel® Graphics
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

This driver it out of date. To update, download and install gfx_win_101.3430_101.2111.exe from Intel® Graphics – Windows* DCH Drivers
Mirror download: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/746999/gfx_win_101.3430_101.2111.exe

If you encounter any issues during the installation, let me know.

Additionally, you should re-enable Shader JIT in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab.

That fixed it, thanks heaps!
