  1. thank you, this worked for me.

  2. Wow thanks. Only working solution to my problem, when I had stucked intro video (last frame before skipping it) over whole window. I could control it (click on things) but I couldn't see anything (except the stucked video :D).
    This fixed it for me (and I tried a lot of fixes).
