Description

Not sure exactly how to reproduce this reliably. Symptom is that the game is left in a bad state on the main menu screen, such that it's just showing the background ("Mun or Bust" ship crashed on Mun) with no menu at all. See attached screenshot.

How I got there:

  1. Was playing KSP normally.
  2. Exit to main menu.
  3. Alt-tab away into Windows for an hour or so.
  4. Eventually alt-tabbed back into KSP and saw this.

I do that quite routinely, and have done so many times in 1.3 without this happening, so I don't have a way to reproduce it. No idea what's so special about this time. I looked at my KSP log file, and here's what it showed at the tail end:

...with that last "Skipped rendering" line repeated ad infinitum. I was able to take a screenshot, but nothing else. Had to kill it via alt+F4. The very tail end of the log file is thus:

Ok. I know how to reproduce the menu issue in 1.3.1 quite easily. Just Alt Enter 2 times and the menu will disappear,
however what usually causes the Mun or Bust screen's terrain to disappear

Yet 1.4.0 is Solid and doesnt lose the menu text when using Alt Enter However it pixelates instead of shrinking to a smaller screen size that the resolution is if its smaller than
the full screen is. When it pixelates clicking on the buttons on the screen doesnt work properly

I would say...This isnt fixed because fixing this caused the pixellation to happen and clicking on the button issues, which happens most times I start KSP on a clean install which new players will experience.

Look to #21611 . It will explain everything.

I would say that whatever fix was attempted here was pretty close, and just missed something minor.
