Thanks for all the help.
To help someone in return, if you have an interest in vulkan as your API to build a new engine or operating system, you should check out my project:
I am using this framework as the foundation for advanced AI, os, and game projects. Took me years to understand why I needed to design it this way.
I don’t think you will find another resource more easy and powerful for General Compute with vulkan! (Or with anything really.)
Of course, I simplified the project lots.
I have lots more code and proven theory to get it running (and for different use cases).
But if you are someone who likes working from the ground up, I give you this to show my respects.
You are welcome. ahaha
If you like living life at the top, you might have to pay us.
