Contrary to popular belief, we are not all-knowing-all-seeing magical beings!

If you want help you're going to have to provide lots of info. Like what is your hardware, what is your operating system, what version of GZDoom/LZDoom/whatever you're using, what mods you're loading, how you're loading it, what you've already tried for fixing the problem, and anything else that is even remotely relevant to the problem.

We can't magically figure out what it is if you're going to be vague, and if we feel like you're just wasting our time with guessing games we will act like that's what you're really doing and won't help you.

I am not a perfect analyst but i do recall that GZDoom doesn't like sitting in a Onedrive folder.

EDIT: And it seems im correct here: viewtopic.php?p=1248072#p1248072

Try moving it to a non-Onedrive one.

This copy of GZDoom is using Microsoft's Vulkan-layer driver which does not work with GZDoom. Please try a devbuild which alters the device order to move these layer drivers lower in the list and makes GZDoom not use them by default: https://devbuilds.drdteam.org/gzdoom/ (in most cases, this will solve your crash)
