Hi, thank you for bringing this up. I am afraid the problem might be related to Unity, I have also seen it in other games. Could you try to launch the game in a window instead of fullscreen (you can change this parameter in the launch window). That will hopefully fix it.

Let me know if it helped! If not, we can try to find another solution.

How do I launch it windowed?
I'm on the GOG Linux version and I usually run the start.sh script, does this accept options to run windowed?

Hi, I double checked the current Linux GOG version, on my side the game first pops up the configuration window as expected, you can select resolution and windowed mode there:

[RESOLVED WORKAROUND] No video on start? Just a blue screen and music. Config10

Btw, I don't remember us ever needing to try this, but there should indeed be a way to launch the game in windowed mode with this argument, the binary is in a subfolder 'game', so something like:

game/ProjectHospital.x86_64 -screen-fullscreen 0

I don't get that configuration window, however running
Code:
..../game/ProjectHospital.x86_64 -screen-fullscreen 0
runs the game in a window and works as expected. So will do as a workaround.
Are there any command line switches to set the size of the window?

Hi, the window should be resizeable - could you try to resize it by hand or maximize it? If that's not what you're after, I can try to find the Unity screen size switches.
