Usually, when you hit escape during a mission, the game pauses and the menu pops up. I've just come back to playing KSP after about a year long break, and I'm encountering a bug that is pretty much game-breaking.
Very often when I hit escape, the game pauses but the menu doesn't appear.
I can do this infinitely many times, and the menu doesn't ever come back once it doesn't appear once.
I literally have to kill the KSP.exe process then reload the game in order to keep playing.
This is obviously quite annoying, and I've already pretty much screwed over my career mode because I can't to back to vehicle assembly once I've closed the game and I lose all that money.
Has anyone else experienced this issue or does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this issue?
I'm using Windows 10, 64-bit, Steam, KSP version 188.8.131.520, no mods, Nvidia graphics card with the most up-to-date drivers.
I've tried reinstalling, restarting my comp, messing with the game graphics settings, but nothing has worked.
