SMT4 Apocalypse Slow Down

The problem here is that whenever I go into that shop, the game would slow down and my cpu usage would increase from 8% to 21%, it would be “fixed” if i randomly pick another resolution, regardless of how big or small it is.

  1. I set this to unlimited frames so that the problem can be shown in a more apparent manner. The
    problem persists even when I lock my fps.
  2. This problem exists in both builds of Citra
  3. I don’t think this is my hardware issue as I can increase my res and it still runs perfectly
  4. I don’t know whether this problem exists further into the game, this is the only place I have experienced that happens
  5. Neither do I think it is my rom’s issue as I got this straight from my own 3ds

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.
