Pokemon Legends Arceus freezes, Radeon RX 570

Hello,
I have a Radeon RX 570 and a Ryzen 1600X installed. The game Pokemon Legends Arceus always froze with the “Vulkan” setting shortly after I entered my nickname. Now I have set it to “OpenGL”. Now the game freezes after the professor finds me on the beach and the 3 starter Pokemon are visible. With “Bilinear” the game freezes a few scenes sooner.
Yuzu Version: 855
Graphics card drivers are up to date.
Windows 10.


I know “Vulkan” is actually better for Radeon, but it freezes even faster with that setting.
I hope someone can help me.

Because the old log file was too big, I deleted the last 32000 lines. It always contained the last error message.

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • Enabling Async GPU emulation is recommended as it can improve the performance of many games.

I have set the setting that the bot recommended to me.
“Vulkan” and Async GPU. Game still freezes on the beach and the characters are missing.

Oh, somehow it didn’t save "Async GPU^^’.
But with the setting it freezes even faster on the beach.

Ok, several things.
You’re on a too old yuzu version, so you’re missing all the fixes for this game, update to latest.
Set CPU accuracy to auto.
Enable asynchronous GPU emulation and disable asynchronous shader building.
Update to the latest 22.2.1 drivers then use Vulkan, the new 1.3 support improves performance.

Thanks. It works now. But I don’t understand why I have an old version. Yuzu no longer updates automatically. But also no matter, it works now :sweat_smile:
