Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
Whenever I try to open the file to play tomodachi life, a message mentioning “A Fatal Error has occurred”. This is my first time using Citra and I’m not very good with it, seeing how i literally used a youtube video to get to this point. Any help would be greatly apreciated!

Try running citra as admin. also change ‘Region’ on Emulation > Configure > General > General to your game region (e.g: USA, EUR, JPN), also try ‘Auto-Select’ if your game region fails.

Your log shows that citra fails to load your game update, if the above doesn’t work, right click on your game on citra’s game list (for your game to appear on citra’s game list double-click on citra’s UI and add your game folder) and select ‘Open Update Data Location’ and move/remove the contents of it.

Thank you for your help! I greatly appreciate it. However, when I try to Open Update Data Location, It says that the folder doesn’t exist. Also, do you know where I can find a US version instead of an EU version?

you will have the game update for whatever version you have, you can’t mix updates for games from different regions. your log shows your update folder:
C:\Users\Zack\AppData\Roaming/Citra/sdmc/Nintendo 3DS/00000000000000000000000000000000/00000000000000000000000000000000/title/0004000e/0008c400/
delete or move the 0008c400 folder.

How do I do that? Sorry, I really don’t know what I’m doing…

just open the C:\Users\Zack\AppData\Roaming/Citra/sdmc/Nintendo 3DS/00000000000000000000000000000000/00000000000000000000000000000000/title/0004000e/ and inside of it delete the 0008c400 folder.

Alright So I tried that and nothing changed… Is there a file that I have to replace it with? Like the code for the US instead of EU version?

No, that folder is a update that you installed, likely corrupted because citra couldn’t load it. Try redumping your ROM, follow the appropriate guide:
Dumping Installed Titles - Dumping Game Cartridges

I can’t since I don’t have a 3ds.

You need to own a Nintendo 3DS to use citra properly.

seems realistic. most of the time i’ve been suing files from various sources.

i made an account just to tell u ur a G, thank you

how to i select auto select? its not showing up as an option?

Emulation>Configuration>General>Region>Auto-select.

If you don’t have the option, please tell me what Citra version you’re on.
