    Hi, I just decided to join these forums.
    I have an ultrawide monitor (2560*1080) and I wanted to play halfway at that resolution fullscreen.
    If I launch halfway it opens in windowed mode, so I go to the graphics settings and set the resolution to 2560*1080 and press apply. I get a window that is a little bit to large, so I toggle on fullscreen to get it to fit on my monitor.

    All of a sudden the game disappears and I see whatever is under it (all the other open windows, though I can't interact with them. I also can't press the super/meta key to open multitask view and switch to another program and alt-tab also doesn't work, so I restart my PC.

    I couldn't get full screen to work, so I found a way to change the resolution in such a way that the windows fills up the space between the upper and left task bars, using the settings.json file (If I set full screen to true, the same thing happened as before). Is there a way to fix this problem? I couldn't find anyone else having this problem...

    I use Manjaro Gnome 64-Bit.
