Problem With Overlays/Bezels

I recently downloaded the bezels from the bezel project and the bezels show up great. The problem is whenever I have the don’t show bezels on the menu option turned on and try to bring up the Retroarch menu while playing any game with any system or core Retroarch freezes up. I would really like any help anyone can give me with this problem because when you bring up the menu with the overlay on it covers up a lot of the menu screen and you can’t see some of the options. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
