I can’t enable it. Once I enable it and reopen the game, citra crashes immediately.

Turn on Hardware Renderer. You might need to turn off Hardware Shader instead.

Thank you for replying! But I did what you suggested, Citra still crashes in one second.

Upload a new log please.

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

It looks like you accidentally reopened Citra before uploading the log. The log gets cleared every time you open Citra. Have the log folder open in the background first before closing Citra then immediately upload a new log.

Sorry about that!

Try this older build: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1392
If that works, we should bisect the issue so it can be fixed.

It works! Now I’m using Nightly 1392. Thank you so much!

Ok, I need you to test more builds so we can narrow it down.

So the issue is between Nightly 1601 and 1392, so we will perform a “binary search” algorithm for a faster approach.

Test this build next: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1497

Well unfortunately it seems 1392 is not working for me either. The speed is good at first then it drops to 40%. Same thing happens to Nightly 1497. Log for both versions are down here.citra_log.txt (46.0 KB) (1497

Right now I am only interested in when Citra crashes.

So 1497 works too? No crashes?

Yes, no crashes!
Should I open a new topic finding solution for the 40% speed problem?

Thanks. I’m simultaneously testing with another user: Citra crashes when trying to open game on Mac

On their end, 1549 worked which would be the next build I wanted you to test but I’m going to assume it would work. Can you test this build next? https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1575
