Current version of RPCS3 is RPCS3 v0.0.12-11042-a90801e2 Alpha | HEAD | Firmware version: 4.86
*The problem has persisted, however across multiple prior week's versions of RPCS3
The error I got was:
That means that vulkan doesn't support that feature
and vulkaninfo is
More details on the background of the error and my attempts to solve it are here:
The root of the issue seems to me that the vulkan drivers for intel (checked for intel-vulkan in software center, didn't find it), either aren't packaged in this distribution, or they are out of date leading to lacking functionaility.
I had the same problem on the Linux Mint xfce distribution, and moved to this one in hopes that the rolling release model and use of linux-current instead of linux-lts would solve this issue. Thus, is there a way to upgrade the current intel vulkan drivers to a version of Mesa or LavaPipe that supports vkCreateDevice, or patch it in? If you could provide assistance, that would be very helpful.
