Citra instantly crashes when booting a game with Vulkan

Issue:
Citra instantly crashes, when booting a game using Vulkan. It worked like 2 weeks ago and now it won’t even load the game at all, in this case it’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, it just straight up crashes. Haven’t tried it with any other game, just this one.

Heard deleting the shaders folder could work, but I’ve done a full clean install of Citra, by also deleting the folder located in appdata. Even tried running the Canary version, sadly still nothing. It doesn’t even create a shaders folder, if I try to run it with Vulkan. Only OpenGL and the Software renderer works right now.

My GPU is also definitely capable of Vulkan 1.1, unless there is a specific driver version requirement as well that I missed? Since when everything was working I was using the unoffical NimeZ drivers, but had to revert to the legacy ones, because of some issues unrelated to Citra that I had. Now I’m running the offical Legacy Drivers version 22.6.1, since AMD has dropped driver support for GCN 3 cards.

Would appreciate some help, because sadly playing on OpenGL or the Software renderer is unplayable for me on this card.
