Elementary Linux Star Conflict quits immediately after battle begins

Everything was working fine until about 3 days ago, now most of the time when a battle begins the game quits immediately. If the game is restarted the option is given to rejoin the battle, if Yes is selected the game quits immediately. If No is selected a screen comes up with the ships selected for the battle on the left showing all ships are in battle. Status of the battle in the middle of the page shows a message “All selected ships are in battle” until the battle is over. After the battle is over, information about the battle shows you are not elgible for any rewards because of abandoning the battlefield. It doesn’t seem to matter which ships are selected for battle. The computer has been completely shutdown and restarted several times but this problem continues to occur. This game was being played via Steam on a computer with Elementary Linux installed and worked fine until a few days ago. Other games played via Steam still work a they did previously. I like this game but this problem makes playing it almost impossible because of not being able to participate in most battles. Hopefully this problem can be resolved quickly, it been happening for several days.
