Ever since the last Origin update the little pop up notifications for when a friend signs in, signs out, starts a game etc are not working, I get the audio sound but not the pop up notification.
I have checked the settings and everything is switched on, I have even re-installed Origin but this has not solved the issue.
Is anyone else having this problem?
This post helped me and I confirmed Client 10.5.41 origin overlay works, and if I upgrade to 10.5.45 (auto update) it breaks origin overlay. https://www.reddit.com/r/origin/comments/crd2tf/login_unavailable_another_fix_that_doesnt_involve/
Note to prevent the auto-update I had to set origin not to start up with windows and to start origin using a short-cut with the /noUpdate at the end. ie.Origin.exe /noUpdate
1. install 10.5.41 client. with these options uncheck start with windows, uncheck auto update origin client and game updates.
2. close the login prompt.
3. edit the origin desktop shortcut.
4. run the origin desktop shortcut.
5.login to the client and check the Help->About to make sure you are still using 10.5.41.27263-0
6. play your games, overlay should be working.
7. you will need to start origin from shortcut every reboot so until they have a fixed origin client I would just use this for now.
