  1. Description & Steps to Reproduce the Issue: The Steam Overlay will not open if the PillarsOfEternity.exe is Run as administrator. This is true whether the "run as admin" function is set in the exe's Properties or if "run as admin" is selected by right clicking on the exe. The problem persists whether at the main menu or in-game. When admin is set via properties and the game is run via steam v1.0.2.0508 -steam is displayed in the lower left-hand corner. Running the exe directly (by double clicking) only v1.0.2.0508 is displayed. When admid is set by right clicking on the exe only v1.0.2.0508 is displayed. In all three cases the overlay will not work. What I tried to do to fix it - TL-DR: I failed: [After a bit of browsing I thought I'd try the method below to get both working simultaneously. I thought I had it working but upon validating the process in task manager (here's a how to) I could see that PoE was in fact NOT running as administrator:] Find Pillars of Eternity via Steam (the program, not the installation location), right click and select Properties A window will open on the GENERAL tab (make sure you have the Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game option checked) Select the SET LAUNCH OPTIONS... button and in the Launch Options window that appears type in -forceservice and select the OK button. If you have any other commands in here make sure to leave a space between them (found this command here.) Close the Pillars of Eternity - Properties window and launch the game through Steam. The lower left-hand corner of the screen will now read: v1.0.2.0508 -steam -forceservice Now you're running as admin and get to keep the Steam overlay to boot! Enjoy! After four hours of research I'm done. Sadness, I have newb'd. Sadness lives in my soul. Info for devs: As this is not a crash I didn't include any savegame files, output logs or screenshots. Let me know if there is any more info that'd help you. I have included my system specs via dxdiag (as well as the 64-bit dxdiag) and just in case you need it here is my Steam version info: Built Mar 23 2015, at 20:07:51 Steam API: v017 Steam package versions: 1427176184 System Spec links: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5-ClpK5zHyfMzR6MndJc3hvNmc&authuser=0 https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5-ClpK5zHyfZlYyQjZVUEJSYmM&authuser=0 (64-bit version) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oh by the way, I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank the entire team at Obsidian for this amazing game. I've barely scratched the surface and I love it already. I've never played any of the old CRPGs but I backed anyway. The fact that you guys have a splash screen thank you for your backers every time the game starts off is pure awesome. Thank you for that! I know there are mainstream haters out there looking for any excuse to write this game off because it doesn't fit in their "clique" of what "gaming should be" - to hell with 'em. Gamers know what this game is worth and stuffed coffers speak loudest. I'm so proud that PoE is getting the limelight it deserves.
