Poor Performance PKMN OmegaRuby

Issue:
Hi there!
First of all - what a wonderful project! Thank you so much for this :slight_smile:
I’m encountering a poor performance of pokemon omega ruby. framedrops, distorted sound and bad borders (see screenshot). What I tried so far:

  • Enable/Disable Windows Game mode
  • Manually set GPU for citra-qt.exe to the dedicated one
  • Multiple restarts
  • Multiple Versions (Nightly and Canary)
  • Playing around with graphic settings.

I noticed that the game seems to run on the wrong gpu even if I force windows to use the dedicated one :frowning: (see screenshot).

Yesterday it worked nearly perfect but today (with no knows changes) not - so I know it CAN work :slight_smile:

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a human moderator to assist.

Make sure to not use save states when troubleshooting. They save the entirety of the emulation state, which includes settings, drivers, fault in the emulation and everything else involved in the emulation process in addition to just your game’s progress. So setting your game to run on GPU 1, and then loading a save state that was saved at a time when Citra was running on GPU 2 could definitely lead to unintended behavior.

So, start your game and use your in-game save file. If the same issue occurs, upload a new log file.
