Steam overlay will not work for me when running x64 DayZ. Everything is up to date. x32 works just fine.
- Operating System
- Windows 10 x64
I always launch my games from the steam app. When I do that it asks me which to choose, normal or x64. I choose x64. Game runs fine, but won't allow me to bring in my steam overlay once in game. I'll have to alt tab and out.
We have found out that the issue is possibly caused by third party programs such as FRAPS due to incompatibility. If you are running FRAPS or any similar programs, can you try to turn them off and let us know if the issue persists still?
Only thing I am running is MSI afterburner and Rivatuner....Also if I open the 64.exe from the folder I can get the steam overlay to work. So for now I just added a shirtcut to my taskbar. Still something that should be looked into and fixed.
Does the issue also occur when you turn off the afterburner and rivatuner? As for the opening the exe from the folder, the exe from the folder currently launches the 32bit exe and the issue should be fixed in one of the upcoming updates.
Hello again L-ight.
Can you try the following steps and let us know if this has resolved the issue for you?
- open the global file located in C:\Program Files (x86)\RivaTuner Statistics Server\ProfileTemplates
- search for InjectionDelayTriggers = IGO64.dll
- once found, add the following below the delaytriggers line: GameOverlayRenderer64.dll
- exit / re-open msi afterburner
Do you mean that the global file is not in the C:\Program Files (x86)\RivaTuner Statistics Server\ProfileTemplates folder or that the folder is not present there at all? (the file itself should be called global). Also do you have hidden folders and files enabled in your Windows?
