    Like the title says I am not able to get to the mainmenu or any other menu after a game/match has ended. The screen remains black but the game is still running. I have a PA cursor and I can hear opening the ESC-menu when I press esc. I can click, too, if i randomly hit something.
    After a restart all works fine. I hope someone can help me. If you neef further information I will try to provide them.

    First about my system:
    • Arch Linux (recent kernel)
    • Radeon HD 6950 with open source driver
    • Onboard sound card
    • Using Steam without steam runtime
    Game:
    Launchoption "--software-ui"
    Problem occurs in Window and Fullscreen-Mode
    Graphicsettings:
    • Texture HIGH
    • Occlusion ON
    • Headlights MEDIUM
    • Anti-Aliasing FXAA
    • Shadows OFF
    • Hdr ON

    This is a known bug with --software-ui. Resizing the window or switching between full screen/windows with <Alt>+<Enter> will force a redraw and all will be fine again.

    I'm afraid that bug won't be fixed. It's been like that for more than a year. I have the same problem.

    I am not sure what "--software-ui", just found it around the net and this is know to fix some stuff for linux and increase the performance. Can you tell me what it does?

    Anyways,thank you. I can live with this workaround very well. I was not aware of this key-shortcut.

    Case is closed for me.

    As far as I know it forces the Coherent UI to not use hardware rendering for it's views. I think. I'm honestly not entirely sure as to what it does precisely. :)
