So I have an Intel HD graphics 5500. Well i looked into it and my card only supports OpenGl 4.4 and Yuzu requires 4.6. So I was wondering if I could download a older version of Yuzu that would be more appropriate for my specs.
In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by yuzu. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: Getting Log Files - yuzu
You will sadly have an easier time just playing on your Nintendo Switch.
If you are going to insist on trying still. See how much linux helps you in comparison to windows. Using an older version of yuzu is not an answer in this case.
