Summary: After opening up a save all user interface elements fail to appear. While the game continues to operate (probably - since the game was saved with the camera below ground level it is kind of hard to tell) it is impossible to interact with it.
Steps to reproduce:
- Open Save Game
- Pull out hair
- Close game using ctrl-alt-del
Expected Results: UI to appear
Actual Results: UI does not appear
Notes: this particular game was running so slow that it had practically ground to a halt. It was already impossible to delete partially designed buildings, and workers’ movements had ground down to a snail’s pace. Not sure what I did that caused it. I suspect it probably started when Oggo and his troupe spawned on a ledge from which he could not advance and I bashfully decided to build a tower right next to him to snipe him from with archers. Maybe the threat response calculations fighting the build queues orders were too much for the engine or something.
I decided to close the game and restart in the hopes that would fix the performance issues, but instead when I opened up the game again the UI was completely absent. Even exiting the game was impossible, other than by force-closing the application.

Attachments: screenshot. New user, so can’t attach my save game, but here’s a dropbox link to the file.
