Yuzu update broke game

Issue:
Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
Yuzu was working fine yesterday and then the app auto updated today and now crashes upon launch, right after the infinite loading bar. after the image below it goes black for a little then crashes. I’ve put in a fair amount of hours and it runs just fine on the previous version.

someone recommended downloading the geforce 445.98 hotfix but it isnt compatible with my computer. Can anyone tell me how to get the last version of Yuzu, I assume build 253 and prevent future updates?

Can you try with the latest GPU driver? Yours is a bit old.
