VKQuake crash help

I've just downloaded VKQuake and it launches but it crashes soon after with the error "vkQueueSubmit Failed"..
I tried putting it into a fresh re-install Quake folder but still the same problem...
Quakespasm works fine for me though.

What's going on here?

Re: VKQuake crash help

Most likely your video card doesn't support Vulcan or drivers need updating.

I was thinking that. So does VKQuake exclusively have to use Vulcan? I haven't had any issues running quake or other games till now but my laptop isn't a gaming computer with any special graphics card

Of course, that's the intention. From its page:

vkQuake is a port of id Software's Quake using Vulkan instead of OpenGL for rendering. It is based on the popular QuakeSpasm and QuakeSpasm-Spiked ports and runs all mods compatible with QuakeSpasm like Arcane Dimensions.
