I've had this problem several times now. The user interface is completely removed and doesnt come back.
I can still CTRL+S, Enter to save. I need to restart by spamming ALT+F4 and restart the game.

Thanks for reporting this to us, guys! Certainly difficult to play the game with the UI disappearing, so I'd really like to help.

For those who are able to, can you try running the game in DirectX 11, and see if this solves the issue? You can change this at:

%userprofile%\Documents\Anno 1800\config\engine.ini

And changing the line ("Device Type": "DX11",) to ("Device Type": "DX12",).

Does that seem to solve the issue? Let me know if so, as that'll be useful information to pass on to our devs for investigation.

In addition, if you can all be sure to verify your game files, and make sure your drivers, OS, and supporting files (such as DX, of course) are updated, as explained by our troubleshooting article, that'd be great.

Hey SirHarryPierce, have you tried steps proposed earlier by any chance?

Hi Gausor, thanks for letting us know and I'm glad to hear this.

Hey attenzionee thanks for reaching out and sorry to hear about this.

For reproduction purposes, so that we could look into the matter further, would you be able to clarify the following:

1. In what instances does the problem occur? Are there any particular actions in-game that you've noticed that may lead to this?
2. How often do you experience the problem?
3. Is there any chance could you provide us with video footage of this?

In the meantime, there are a few workaround steps mentioned in the thread, therefore if you haven't tried those yet, you can give it a go and see if it helps.

Keep us updated!
