I wonder why you don't get Vulkan renderer displayed on Vulkan capable hardware, was it removed because of the issues it currently has /specific hardware?

No, Vulkan is still in, the option was just hidden on android where I belive it was never enabled to begin with due to this and Vulkan requiring C++ EGL.

Selecting this backend on android was effectively switching to GLES with inverted screen confusing people who doesn't track developement at all or only read merge comments when downloading latest automated builds.

Either way I recall reading even with c++ egl Vulkan wouldn't work on android yet, no clue why through, as far as I can tell works fine on pc with windows and amd gcn gpu, didn't really tried any other platforms myself.

Doesn't seem to work on my pc? Why? Just freezes the emu.

@shinra358 make sure your hardware support Vulkan.

Nvidia says on its site that vulkan was added on newer drivers which I have. If I look in the hardware section, vulkan isn't listed on any of the gpu specs (desktop or laptop). My card is the one before most recent on the laptop end which is a 980M.

Yeah, 980M does support Vulkan, don't know what's wrong, maybe driver optimization isn't good.

Galaxy s7 got Vulkan support on september so it should work now:
