Greetings!

Vulkan, as an option, is missing in my Renderer List.

Here are my specs:

OS: Windows 10 Home Single Language 64-bit (10.0, Build 17314)
Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-6100 CPU @ 3.70GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.7GHz
Memory: 8192 RAM
Display Device: NVIDIA GeForce GT 705 version 391.35


Running vulkaninfo.exe displays the following:

Quote:===========
VULKAN INFO
===========

Vulkan API Version: 1.0.65

ERROR: [loader] Code 0 : loader_get_json: Failed to open JSON file C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamOverlayVulkanLayer64.json
ERROR: [loader] Code 0 : loader_get_json: Failed to open JSON file C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamOverlayVulkanLayer64.json

Instance Extensions:

C:\VulkanSDKBuild\workspace\LoaderAndValidationLayers\demos\vulkaninfo.c:1670: failed with
VK_ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED

Things I have tried:
  • Uninstalling display drivers using DDU, then installing the latest update (391.35 for my GPU)
  • Adding a REG_DWORD in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Khronos\Vulkan\Drivers whose name is the path for the latest nv-vk64.json file located in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\nvddi.inf_amd64_8bbe140e99a054e8, with a value of 0
  • Adding a REG_DWORD in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Khronos\Vulkan\Drivers whose name is the path being asked in vulkaninfo.exe's output, with a value of 0
  • Uninstalling VulkanRT version 1.0.65.1 and replacing it with the latest version (1.1.92.1); but after doing so, the vulkaninfo.exe display lacked the list of Instance Extensions (see above), so I reinstalled the 1.0.65.1 version, thinking something went wrong
  • Installing VulkanSDK version 1.0.65.1
Also:

  • I do not know why Vulkan is trying to locate a .json file in a directory that does not exist; I do not have a Steam folder in the Program Files (x86) directory.
  • I also do not have a directory named 'VulkanSDKBuild'; instead, I have one named 'VulkanSDK'. Is this the reason why I get 'VK_ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED'?
  • With OpenGL (and a configuration made to increase performance), the game I was running (JJBA: Eyes of Heaven) gets a solid 30 fps in the menu, and 15-25 fps in battles (depending on the map, number of characters left, etc); I wanted to see if Vulkan fixes the the fps issue during battles.
Help is greatly appreciated.

Oh, that's too bad. I thought NVIDIA GeForce GT 705 supported Vulkan because it is part of the GeForce 700 Series.
I will try to get my hands on a better GPU in the future.

Thank you for the reply!
