In this instance I tried to bring up the menu with escape and load a prior save but when I did this something knocked me off a ledge and I proceeded to die from the height.
In the process of this the menu stayed up, and I couldn't take it down anymore, I couldn't access it to even close the game. I try using the windows key but the game doesn't exit correctly, it makes my mouse appear as if outside of the game on my desktop but I can't see my desktop or minimize the game.
Thus because I got stuck with this in/out of menu experience I was unable to close the game, to fix the issue, I could do little aside from entirely force my laptop to shut down by holding the power button which is improper and not something I like having to do. It causes me great frustration when issues like this happen but otherwise the game of satisfactory is great.
I hope you guys can figure out this bug as I don't think I can offer anymore insight into it.
