Vulkan don't show up in the "Backend" list.
Hello everyone, I'm Bruno and today I'm here to ask for help, so, I'm using PPSSPP 1.5.4 on Linux (Linux Mint 18.3) and when I read about Vulkan support, I was happy, it's a great API, but here comes the problem, I updated the PPSSPP version to 1.5.4, but when I go to Settings> Backend, the only option is OpenGL. I do not know why it is not there, can it be because my hardware is incompatible with it? I'm using a notebook with the Intel Core i5 5200U and HD Graphics 5500, is not a power monster, but i can play some games in it. If anyone knows how to help, post here please. Thank You! Heart

Vulkan will be not displayed if your hardware or software (drivers, for example) don't support it.

Phone: Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro 4/64GB

PC: Core i5 3470/8GB RAM/GTX 660 2GB/Windows 10 Pro x64

RE: Vulkan don't show up in the "Backend" list.
Vulkan backend is only available for windows and android currently, linux support will definitely come someday, but unless you want to implement it yourself(which will likely involve updating SDL and Qt before anything else), you will really just have to wait - probably 1.6.0 will have it ~ sometime next year.

Seems your notebook has an Intel GPU. You'll have to download Intel Vulkan drivers, which are only available for the latest generations of Intel GPUs so you may be out of luck, not sure. In that case stick to D3D11.
