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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.


that does not help at all

You’re not loading a save file, you’re loading a save state. They’re different things. That error seems to occur when people only use save states to record their progress. Which is really not something we recommend. Save states save the entirety of Citra’s state, not just your in-game progress. This means that if you keep loading and saving upon save state made progress, any faults in the emulation will never get eliminated. Which can sometimes cause the issue that you’ve just run into.

If you have any in-game save file, load that instead. If you don’t, you’re most likely out of luck.

oh, alright thanks for telling me
