Arclight most certainly does have its own OSD.  It doesn't sound like
you're running the .24 version of Arclight at all.  It includes a
complete, original OSD that will fill the screen.

See above, it's extremely doubtful if you are on .24 that you are
seeing BlackCurves, since that OSD is not compatible/usable with .24.

I suspect if you solve whatever your issue above is, this will handle itself.
