TF2 breaking on launch

I'm running Steam on GNOME with the AMDGPU driver, and when I launch TF2, it stops acknowledging clicks, and all keyboard input stops.However, audio plays correctly, and, about 50% of the time, the game's UI will still render and animate normally (the other 50% of the time, the screen freezes on the loading screen).

If I press Ctrl+Alt+F2 and log into ptty2, running `gnome-shell --replace` fails after a while with an X server error (even when specifying DISPLAY). Running `pkill hl2_linux` only causes the audio to stop and the screen to freeze. Even running `sudo systemctl restart display-manager` only works once or twice before trying to log in just kicks me back to the login screen.

The one way I found to work around this issue is to start the game with `-safe` in the launch options (so the game loads in a window instead of fullscreen), and then switch to another window between the time when the game window appears and when the game starts loading.

How can I track down the root of this issue?

Re: TF2 breaking on launch

Is gnome running a wayland session or an X session ?

Do things work if you launch fullscreen ?


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

This behavior manifests whether using X or Wayland.

No, though if I launch windowed as described, I can change to fullscreen after.

UPDATE: I posted this to Valve's issue tracker, and this appears to resemble an existing known issue with other games on GNOME.
