Random crashes while playing Pokemon Sword

I’ve been using Yuzu for a while (thanks for your amazing work) and just recently I decided to try it with Pokemon Sword: the game runs perfectly fine, no audio or graphic glitches, but sometimes during gameplay Yuzu simply crashes out of nowhere, with no errors showing, I’ve tried to understand if there’s a trigger to it but I couldn’t see a pattern, sometimes I can play fine for half an hour and sometimes it crashes 5 minutes after launching the game

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

Try without the mod.
The game is known for having kernel related stability issues for now.

Thanks for the fast reply!

Right now I have these mods activated:


Are you suggesting to turn off No Outlines and force-max-resolution or are the DLC/Update the issue here?

A crash occurred again after I turned off the mods a few minutes in, I’m starting to believe it may have something to do with Full Screen, because both times (since I opened the thread) the crash occurred, I was in Full Screen and the game crashed after a battle just ended, during the black screen transition (once with mods on and once with mods off)
This is the log with mods off

Try this, manually set up a 10GB page file: How to change virtual memory size on Windows 10 | Windows Central

After creating a bigger paging file I’ve been having the longest playtime session with this game so far, with no crashes at all, thanks a lot!

We’re experiencing issues with CPUs with 4 threads or less at the moment, we’re working to solve them.

Hi ! I’m experimenting similar crashes in Shield. Crashes are nearly inexistant on other games (only happened once with each of the other games I play). I have created a paging file with 10000 Mo for the initial size and 40000 Mo for the max size but it crashes all the same. Maybe I did it wrong. I’m quite ignorant in computers so it’s plausible.
So I wanted to check out with the log and all that, so if you’ll allow me:(note that this is the most recent log file, just after the crash, I did not restart yuzu.)

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

Experiencing yuzu crash when playing any game.

You need to post the .log.

Hardware Requirements:

I am having the same exact problem, and I believe creating more virtual memory won’t help, because i have 16gb of RAM and while I play i check constantly the memory usage that never crosses the 60% ,
I am pretty positive that the multi core usage is the problem that causes crashes because when I play on single core it never crashes, but obviously the performance is very bad compared to the multi core one.yuzu_log.txt (2.1 MB)

Try without mods and see if it still crashes.

The bigger paging file didn’t help me. Please I want to play sword without these dumb crashes help me ASAP.

Make sure to run the latest yuzu version.

I am running on yuzu 848 and as I know this is the latest version
