    I'm running Arch Linux with NVIDIA proprietary drivers.

    When I go into a game, there are no metal spot icons or unit icons, even though I have both of the options enabled in the menu.

    Also, when I'm in a game the menu does not work. I press escape and the menu appears, but clicking the buttons does nothing.

    I've done a bit of searching and I can't find any solutions.

    I have tried verifying the integrity of the game and it is all ok.

    Thanks

    Have you also tried --software-ui?

    Not yet. Where can I find the executable?

    Never mind, I found it. It doesn't help unfortunately, all the planets and background are just a solid white texture.

    Tried it again and the textures loaded, but the problem persists with the icons.
    However, it did fix the ingame menu problem, but made all the menus stack on top of eachother.

    Well, progress at least. :)
    Can you post a PA log? You can find those in "~/.local/Uber Entertainment/Planetary Annihilation/log".

    The log exceeds the character limit, where should I paste it?

    Well, that all looks ok. No breaking errors there. Could you try running PA outside of Steam? You should be able to just start the PA executable at ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Planetary Annihilation Titans
    Try both with and without --software-ui

    edit: Oh, actually, I just came across this: https://forums.uberent.com/threads/build-update-86422-hotfix-86765.70066/#post-1107806
    Apparently a bug was introduced and they are working on a fix. Strange because I also have NVidia and it works fine for me.

    Still the same problem I'm afraid.

    Looks like I'll just wait for a patch! :)

    Thanks for your help today
