Tomodachi Life no longer works

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.

then follow this guide to install it:

Your iGPU has driver bugs so you should use this older build until you buy a new computer:

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!
