Tomodachi Life: Mii voices cut short/graphic errors

Issue:
When a Mii talks for more than 3 seconds, their audio cuts short, and it makes the game a lot less enjoyable. Also, rooms and places get this really aggravating shine effect which is definitely not intended.

Ignore the bot regarding the drivers, it is a bit dumb when it comes to old iGPUs.

Hm, the voices cutting off should already been fixed. It was addressed in this PR:

Which was merged in Nightly 1642.

The flashes are probably due to the buggy iGPU. I had similar issues in other games with Intel HD 4000 when I was still testing it on my i7-3770K. Unfortunately it may also randomly crash due to a driver bug so to fix that you would need Nightly 1392: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1392 but this doesn’t have the voice cutting off fix.
