Hello everyone! I signed up here to ask for some help as a newbie using Citra. I started using it yesterday and it worked just great, I was playing Pokemon Y and today I made a new Game Directory and that’s when the problems started, it might just be a coincidence but after I did that every game I tried would load, flash a black screen, would have the game music in the background, and would stop responding. I’ve tried turning off hardware renderer, hardware shaders, disk shader cache, and just turning the graphics lower. I’ve tried to update drivers but the couple of times I tried, it didn’t do anything, I’ve attached my log file in case that helps, I have a Dell Alienware. I just don’t get how it would work this morning and stop working so instantly, any help appreciated!
