Tomodachi Life no longer works

Issue:
Tomodachi Life was running amazing until I opened it up for about the 7th time. It would be a black screen with little to no speed and little to no fps to load up, and when I waited the full 25 minutes for it to load up it would play perfectly, around 98 speed and 30 fps steadily. As for the 8th time, it ran at 0 speed and 0 fps to load up, and it wouldn’t load at all.

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

Make sure the drivers are updated first:

Download win64_15.33.53.5161.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29969/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-33-
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29969/a08/win64_15.33.53.5161.zip

then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

Your iGPU has driver bugs so you should use this older build until you buy a new computer: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1392

So I got the driver and I think I correctly downloaded the older build, what do I do now?

Thank you so much! It all worked!
