Download citra-windows-mingw-20221023-a2daef2.7z from Release nightly-1800 · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub
Extract it using winrar or 7zip, then launch the citra-qt(.exe) from the extracted folder. Load your save state in this version, then save in-game. Now you can use your latest Citra builds again by loading your in-game save file.

Please note, save states are not a replacement for in-game save files. They are meant to be used within single gaming sessions, not beyond them. They are way more unstable than in-game save files after all.
