Beta 1.16 - Game Crashes Whenever I Win A Battle

Weirdly timed glitch, I know, but everything works just fine throughout the battle, and as soon as I beat the opposing fleet, the game freezes up, the audio loops, and a big black box covers most of my screen, even when I switch windows. Can’t even kill the game with the task manager when this happens.

Windows 8.1
CPU: AMD FX-6300 hexacore 3.5GHz
GPU: ASUS Radeon HD7770
RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR 1866MHz
HDD: Corsair Neutron 250GB SSD
Playing in fullscreen mode at 1920x1080

AFAIK this is fixed in 1.17
