    The Vulkan API is part of the Windows port, the OP should maybe have pointed that out IMO

    I just downloaded it last night. I did not see the option. I was simply asking a question not making a statement. Where do you find the Vulkan option on the PC version?

    I just downloaded 1.5.2 (bug fix), went to settings and found the Vulkan API in Settings...Backend *shrug*
    Either that, or your GPU may not support Vulkan.

    Just checked again. I guess the GPU in my Windows Tablet isn't compatible with Vulkan. I only have options for Open GL, Direct 3D 9 and Direct 3D 11

    As nice as it would have been, it's not a pressing issue. Hell, Dead or Alive Paradise runs a LOT better than during my OUYA days and that alone makes me happy. I just need to figure out how to nix letterboxing so that the game fills my screen.

    At least here, PPSSPP for a long time has two major issues. One, the QT port won't even load (has some GL errors). Two, there's sound popping/click in the SDL port with some random slowdowns. This is an AMD A10-6800K with a GTX 750 Ti in Ubuntu 14.04. Played around with the settings a lot. Seems to be a timing issue or something since it'll often run a 59/60 FPS. Alternative speed (unlimited) runs at ~800%. *shrug*

    Oh, yea, and no Vulkan support in SDL apparently.
