So I went and grabbed the War Thunder launcher off of Gaijin’s website, unfortunately there is no package for it so I went ahead and used the launcher executable in the tar.gz archive.
However, whenever I did so, my screen went completely black, except for my cursor. But I can still switch windows with alt-tab, and whenever the launcher window is not the active window, it shows up perfectly fine.
The game’s finished downloading and launches correctly, and displays correctly while in game. It’s only just the launcher window that seems to have this issue.
Maybe check your compositor settings - please see if “Allow applications to block compositing” toggle might be to blame.
Also … you may attempt running from terminal to see if any clues pop out.
(ex, going from scrot: ./AppData/Warthunder/launcher)
Same issue here.
The game won’t even start it’s launcher using Steam…
So i created a manual shortcut on my desktop to launch the launcher and game directly without steam for mean time.
Launcher window has problems though, you need to alt-tab and right click on blank space on desktop to see the auncher at all, which s needed to auto-update the game…
If it would be a driver problem, then why the game works as normal when launching the game directly?
Could you share the link to that forum thread here?
edit: Currently, running compiz (or any Vulkan compatible window manager) allows War Thunder to launch and run without issues. However, that means replacing the current window manager with --replace, which needs me to log out of the session and login again to restore kwin when I’m through playing.
ForceFullCompositionPipeline does nothing using kwin. (aside from an unrelated konsole output)

Compiz really doesn’t like it when I open chromium tabs for some reason. (Having the browser open in the background while I wait for battles …) Freezes the system until it gets interrupted for some reason (eg. pressing power switch to gently logoff/shutdown)
