Summary

Monster Hunter Stories doesn’t seem to have major graphical or audio issues on Citra in most areas. However, most battle and cutscenes are completely blurry due to gas rendering issue. Since the game renders in stereoscopic 3D, the game runs slow even on powerful hardware and you will experience another kind of blurriness in all 3D scenes, which is like ghosting but these can be fixed using cheat codes below. Another reason why the game runs slow is the internal fps cap set by Capcom to 200, this can be changed using a cheat code blow.
