So I launch rpcs3.exe and after a few seconds I'm hit with this message;

https://ibb.co/cQm5NPF

I hit ignore to try to proceed, rpcs3 loads up but is unresponsive, then I'm hit with this Error;

https://ibb.co/SvzVQMz

It also says at the bottom of rpcs3 that Vulkan has timed out.

What I've tried;
  • Used DDU to completely uninstall Geforce drivers in safe mode before reinstalling
  • Enabled iGPU in BIOS (it worked for someone else apparently).
  • Deleted rpsc3 directory and all config files and re extracted multiple times.
  • Added Rpcs3.exe in Nvidia Control Panel 3D application settings because why not.
Rig;
GeForce GTX 970 4GB (Vulkan 1.1 support)
Driver version 436.15
I5-3570k CPU @ 3.40GHz
12GB RAM
ASRock  H61M-DGS Mobo

Obviously there is a problem with Vulkan here, just can't seem to get around it.
I can't get as far as installing firmware because of this error.
Any help would be appreciated, any more info I can give just let me know.
Cheers!

If you have an AMD driver crash it means you have AMD drivers installed, probably from your older card. You need to use DDU to uninstall the AMD drivers, not the NVIDIA ones.

Spot on.
Never considered that, obviously.

I had to Download Vulkan-1.dll after removing the AMD leftovers, and now it's working fine.


I appreciate the assistance.
Many thanks!

Don't, it won't work fine, and you shouldn't be downloading system32 DLLs out of the internet. You now need to use DDU on your NVIDIA drivers and install them again if you're missing that library.

I used a Vulkan Runtime installer, It wasn't just the dll on its own.

But I do understand your point and I knew the next step was to reinstall Nvidia drivers, I was just being lazy, probably because I have wiped and reinstalled them so many times recently.

If i run into any problems whatsoever I will do just that.

Thanks again.
