[Vulkan] Render Debug Mode assertion

Description (last modified by Vladislav Belov)

originally posted on D4905 (26/Jan/23) (can be seen within the video)

to reproduce

  • enable Vulkan as renderbackend
  • start any map, for example random/mainland
  • open Developer Overlay - Alt+D
  • select any option from the dropdown Render Debug Mode
  • assert because of a missing technique


(not possible, Vulkan support came with [27488] on macOS)

Redirecting call to abort() to mozalloc_abort

pyrogenesis was compiled with optimization - stepping may behave oddly; variables may not be available.

Milestone: Alpha 27Alpha 28
Priority: Should HaveNice to Have

Currently it's intended behavior. Else it might make the shaders size 5 times bigger.
