Crash at startup when unable to use Vulkan

Just creating this thread so I won't forget. I will edit it to write more details later.

The problem is that GZDoom will crash on startup if the default render API is set to Vulkan, but the hardware isn't capable of it. Expected behavior is it falls back to OpenGL and lets the game start in OpenGL mode
