Issue Title: Game goes black randomly

Issue Description: While playing Don't Starve Together, my game apparently randomly goes black - the entire screen - and doesn't recover. My audio and movement in game appear to be unaffected - friends still in game say my character is still moving when I click. If I alt-tab, nothing else has issue with graphical displays -- but DST remains black. I have to end task the process to get out and relaunch.

I have been able to catch Windows event viewer reporting "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." when this occurs. I can't find any updates available to my graphics card driver, and I haven't tried reverting to an old version yet.

I've been playing a lot of other games for a lot more hours than DST and this has not happened in any of them. I'm not sure what differences DST could be requesting on my graphics card.

My log.txt file ends with massive spam of this:

[00:02:42]: framebuffer not complete (0x0)

Steps to Reproduce: Joined a game and play, has happened at random times doing random things.

I play a lot of games and nothing else has triggered this or any comparable error.

Forgot to include my DxDiag. Can't figure out how to attach a file now, but hope this excerpt helps ---

I have been able to catch Windows event viewer reporting "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." when this occurs. I can't find any updates available to my graphics card driver, and I haven't tried reverting to an old version yet.

 

Check out this link: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Fix-the-Nvlddmkm-Error/

 

That should hopefully get you sorted. Other players have had trouble with Aero on Windows in the past as well--it may help to disable that if you've got it on.
