Issue description
Hi there,

Whenever I start a new game, my screen just Turns Black. I can still hear sounds, walk around, etc. But no video output smileys/4.png

With v1.12 Rhaa Movis, I did not have this issue...

The log does log say anything, since the application does not crash.

Here are some renedering specs from the log:

I OpenGLRenderer:110 Using OpenGL 4.6.0 - Build I OpenGLRenderer:113 ├─ Vendor: Intel I OpenGLRenderer:116 ├─ Device: Intel(R) Iris(R) Xe Graphics I OpenGLRenderer:183 └─ VRAM: (unknown)
Steps to reproduce this issue
Whenever I start a new game

Please try lowering the video and render settings to see if that helps. In particular, try setting "Alpha Cutout AA" to "Disabled" or "Fuzzy" since "Crisp" is known to cause problems with some Intel drivers and already disabled for older Intel hardware where it causes crashes. Let me know which setting is causing problems so that I can add it to the blacklist for your GPU.

If that doesn't help, please post the FULL log.
