Thanks for the report, but BGE has been removed from Blender 2.8, so this will never be fixed on our end now… time to archive.

this is already fixed in upbge - we are using sdl2

here is upbge -

we are trying to maintain upbge.

here is bge working in blender 2.8 / eevee by youle

/shrug I guess the people whom offered to help maintain bge are still maintaining it on a fork now ?
