Yuzu crashing after going into fullscreen

i had this problem for probably more than a year, it’s not gamebreaking or something but it’s really annoying.

this is the sequence of actions that causes the bug to happen are the following:

  1. you launch a game
  2. you go into fullscreen
  3. you change anything in the settings (like even simplly input/controller stuff, it hasnt to be something related to graphics and stuff)
  4. you go again in ff to continue playing and the game crashes

this is 100% reproducible, it happens everytime

also a strange thing is that what triggers the issue is the going into fullscreen at least one time

so if i start a game windowed and i keep playing windowed i can change any setting without any issues , and i can also go into fullscreen without problem, but then from now on (after i went into ff that one time) i cant no longer change the settings if i want to keep playing in ff

so TLDR: everytime i have to change the setting i have to restart the emulator willingly or not

i dont thing that the log file is this relevant because i’ve had this problem on so many games (but on yuzu i play SSBU 99% of the time)

yuzu_log.txt (3.3 MB)

and versions of the emu but i will still include it for good mesure

i’m open to record screen captures of the issue happening and to do any kind of tests

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

UPDATE: this also happens on borderless fullscreen so it’s not something strictly related to the exclusive fullscreen itself

Hi, bro. I have the same problem lately… I usually play in full screen mode, but when I do so I can NOT exit the game because both my controller and keyboard stop responding and the only thing I can do is reset the PC.

This is the EXACT problem that happens to me too, everything stops responding while the game still running and I’m forced to restart my PC.

Same issue, exclusive fullscreen, press F11 to quit fullscreen will cause no responding, did you fix it?

For people having this issue would you mind seeing if qt-config.ini purge helps any? Delete %appdata%\yuzu\config\qt-config.ini then reopen the emulator to regenerate it. You’ll have to remap your game directory but it doesn’t delete anything like your save. That can help you rule out if it is config oddity. A few users had it fixed by doing that.

Same issue. I start a game, toggle to fullscreen, screen locks up, and yuzu stops responding.

I found a fix that works for me.
Click In Yuzu, click “View”, untick “single window mode”, launch the game, then toggle to fullscreen.

Tested on Yuzu early access 3303.

Did you try the thing I mentioned right above your comment? That should sort you out most cases. Or try using exclusive fullscreen mode in yuzu compared to borderless (config graphics change fullscreen mode)

The Problem solved in the latest Yuzu updates, but you have to update your Nvidia driver as well.

Edit: the problem returned with the latest yuzu updates. Damn.
