linux build seems to have a bug where the first groundshootin message gets stuck on screen forever and i can't read anythnig else
That's super weird... Were you playing in fullscreen?
Yep, fullscreen 1920x1080 max settings
I've heard of problems with Unity and mouse controls with fullscreen... try playing it in windowed mode, if possible?
Nope, it's the same
I shoot the ground, get the appropriate message, and then that's the only message I ever get
Ubuntu 17.10 GNOME Nvidia GTX1070, um, on a Ryzen chip that I forget the exact designation
