Hi @9Lilith

 

Are you still getting this same message when you're trying to play? If so, have you tried validating the game files in Steam to see if that makes any difference at all?

Hey @illviticus


Can you give us a bit more info on what's happening? Is it not giving you the option to enable the overlay, or is it just still giving you that same error even though you enabled the option?

Hey @realYellowFellow


What's the full error message you're getting? Can you share a screenshot of what you're seeing?

@Tristen1195 Hi, if you try a Clean Boot and only start the game and Steam, with the overlay toggled on, does that make any difference?


I suspect there's some conflict with some other overlay software, and testing with the Clean Boot can check for this. 

Thanks.
