Poor Performance on Cutscene only

The game run fine on gameplay but it will drop to 8-10 fps on cutscenes and slow everything down to unbearable level. I’m using an old build of Citra and everything seems alright but it doesn’t support HD texture. I tried to disable Hardware Shader but nothing seems to change. Is my computer or CPU too slow to render the cutscene?

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

  • Please enable the Vsync option if you are experiencing screen tearing.
  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.

Go to Emulation>Configuration>System and set your CPU Clock Speed back to 100%. Overclocking inherently makes the emulation unstable and can lead to freezing as well as a severe loss in performance in cutscenes. You shouldn’t be touching that slider unless you know what you’re doing.

Furthermore, you should disable Dump Textures in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics → This option is only useful for those that are interested in creating their own custom textures.
You may also want to delete all the textures it’s dumped so far: Go to File>Open Citra Folder, then open up the dump folder and delete the textures folder found here (this will delete all dumped textures for all of your games).
