Project X Zone 2, superlags when entering combat

citra_log.txt (42.2 KB) Issue:
I was playing normally until Chapter 3, when any battle takes place the speed instantly goes 2%/100% and lags forever with the sound lagging too (even the pc did the same moments later). It never happened to me playing Citra with any other game.
I both a save file and a save state and both failed.

I really hope you can help me guys!

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

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Hm, upload a save file (Right click on the game on Citra -> Open Save Data Location, zip the file(s), upload it to like Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox etc then link it here) and give steps how to reproduce the issue.

Also do this:

  1. Open Citra then go to File->Open Citra Folder
  2. Open shaders folder then delete the opengl folder if it is there.
  3. Emulation->Configure... then click on Graphics on the left
  4. Click on the Advanced tab and turn on Accurate Multiplication

The Disk Shader Cache currently has a bug when Accurate Multiplication is turned off causing it to load all shaders slowly from zero every time you start the game and makes the precompiled cache extrememly large + the RAM usage skyrockets until you crash.

Here is the save data:

Just start the game, load the save file and start playing. The first battle you engage (being your turn or the enemy´s in case you counter them causes this incident).

I will try the configuration advice and post the results!

Thanks for your time, @tywald!

I just tried the configuration, sadly it ended with the same results.
