[PC} Steam Overlay does not work (SOLVED)


#1

Edit; Disabling my video recorder did the trick. Kinda stupid that the game can’t handle Steam and a recorder, but at least now I know.

I have tried restarting, disabling dual monitors, rebinding the shortcut, all the usual. I am unable to access the Friends list, community hub, or any Steam features while in game.


#2

are you using SLI/Crossfire for the dual monitors?


#3

Nope, single card.


#4

Hm, Then I wouldn’t know either. Perhaps a steam bug? Better repair steam, just to be sure

read the first bit, about repairing the steam service. Perhaps that helps


#5

No dice. And the program works fine with every other game in my library. The little popup at the bottom right that says ‘press key to access Steam community’ never appears in Evolve.


#6

Same issue here. Can’t invite friends.


#7

Glad it’s not just me :slight_smile: Was really hoping to make use of Broadcast this week, guess that won’t be happening.


#8

Are you running any overlays like fraps or afterburner. Dissable them and try again. :smile:

Wow. I mean just… amazing that it worked, and equally amazing that it was a problem in the first place.
