Honestly I expected the same black GUI but AMD managed to get over their assheads with that one
It just... crashes on qglGetProgramiv(... GL_LINK_STATUS ...) with the manylight shader
Thank you, AMD, for setting the eternal gold standard in shit baths driver quality reputation

Wow, this is impressive 😁
I think crash on shader compilation is like getting internal compiler error from ordinary C++ compiler. Except that GLSL compiler is embedded, so consequences for crashing are much worse.

Luckily, the problem can be worked around by simply removing the manylight shader.
I think the black screen issue will return back to you after that 😁

By the way, do you want to go into the quest of reporting the issue to AMD? πŸ˜‰
I recall I did it with the bug that texture fetches in global variable initializers didn't work, and got response like "upgrade GLSL version". At least that was response from someone from AMD, as far as I understood.
Maybe a crash will get more attention. Also, it is very easy to debug if you attach a full crash dump...

Matter of fact I already reported a different driver bug some time in 2013. The support was as frustrating as the original driver "experience". It felt like they actually don't want bug reports at all.

But then again, it's a 2011 chip, they will refuse to fix the bug just on that ground.

test15973-8778 works but test15973-8797 starts with the black screen.

It appeared to work, I now have the menu screen.
