Log: Log file too large for body.

There is cursor SFX and physical attack SFX. Game freezes on using abilities (i.e. Sturdy) or leveling up.

This has already been reported.
Please look at our games page under issues.


EDIT: Looks like it hasn’t been linked to the game yet. Let me find the Github issue… one moment…

I believe this issue is the same thing with the freeze when starting a new game (DSP related). X and Y freezes when starting a new game, leveling up and receiving an item. It’s not playable state.

play ORAS or Sm or USUM. Its playable. XY isnt playable.

Wow, so helpful.

At least I tried to be helpful; even if already reported, it wasn’t listed (not sure if that has been corrected).

Hey guys, I found the solution to avoid the sound related freezes like when leveling up or receiving an item or whatever similar to it. It does slow the game quite a bit, but it works fine.

  1. Run Citra
  2. Open Configure and navigate to the System submenu
  3. In the system tab choose Sound output mode -> Mono
  4. In the audio tab under Emulation pick either the 2nd or 3rd option (Basically anything but the “fast” one works)

Let me know how you fared!



on the latest canary, the fast option works. and you can change your sound back to stereo.
