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.

GZDoom is not built to be compatible with overlay programs such as Overwolf - some of these programs may work, some won't. Try using an alternate backend (i.e. OpenGL instead of Vulkan) if you really want Overwolf running in the background - this isn't guaranteed to work but it's something you can try. If that doesn't work, then try adding GZDoom as an exception to Overwolf (so that it does not hook into GZDoom) and see if that will work. If that is not possible, then try running GZDoom without Overwolf present in the background.

I deleted overwolf and everything started working!
I never used overwolf and it wasn't in my background, but just because it was on my PC it broke everything
And i made some research before i deleted it, all versions of gzdoom before 4.9.0 and lzdoom, zdoom can launch with overwolf but others crash with same error.
Maybe those versions simply do not care about some program hooking in them xd
And i still need to change to opengl cuz vulkan not works on my gpu.
