Steam Overlay not working Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I am trying to purchase doubloons on obsidian however i am getting the error that steam overlay is not enabled.

Before you ask, Yes I have tried:

1)Looking in the game properties and unticking steam overlay and launching the game then quitting, ticking it on again and trying

2)Same thing just with the global steam overlay.

3)As well as restarted my computer to try verify it.

4) finding steam in accessibility

Is there any other way we can purchase doubloons on obsidian?

Is this for Windows or Mac? I remember seeing complaints from Mac users about the Steam overlay not working for them.

It's a Steam issue with injecting the overlay while System Protection is enabled. You can temporarily disable System Protection to temporarily have the overlay work.

Thanks, but I turned off Steam Protection, restarted Steam, and it still didn't work.

It's not Steam Guard that needs disabling, it's the Mac OS X System Protection that needs disabling, via a restart and some fancy terminal lines, and then you can run the overlay. But it's only to be done temporarily, running your system without System Protection on for longer than a short time is quite risky.

No lol - did you kill Sys Integrity, restart OS X and then run it?

Disabling Mac OS X System Protection also didn't work for me when trying to get it to work. I suppose it might work for some, but definitely not for most people.

I just solved this issue by... Borrowing someone's Windows computer and do it that way... this seems like the only true, feasible, solution until Grey Havens decides to create a more functioning way to purchase doubloons for Dark Seas.
