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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

Saving in-game should always be your priority if you wish to keep your progress safe.
Save states have a number of issues that make them only safely usable within a single gaming session. Beyond that, strange behavior may occur as they are not the most stable of things. They can even break completely upon being loaded on a different Citra version than the one they were created on. As such, they are not a replacement for in-game save files.

Your use of save states, combined with cheats being enabled can lead to some wacky save state behavior. There is likely not much we can do about this.
