#949 Windows 8 Mumble Overlay not working, steam games will not start

Many of my steam games seem to not even be able to open when the overlay for mumble is active. I've tried disabling Steam overlay and had the same issue. Dota 2 is one example, my user icon will change to a green border saying I'm joining a game then it will go back to blue and Dota 2 or the game itself will not start. I have tried adding some of the launch properties but no luck.

The games that do start will not allow me to use the overlay. The overlay also does not show up in Battlefield 3.

I am running windows 8.

    I cannot seem to reproduce this issue. Steam games with overlay launch just fine. Also the overlay works for me in Bf3.

    Please make sure that you are using the 1.2.4-rc version which has received a lot of bugfixes for windows 8 (I know you selected current snapshot for this report but the issue description sounds like what some 1.2.3 users reported on windows 8).

     
  • I actually had to use 1.2.4 from the start. 1.2.3 would not run correctly it would intermittently freeze.

    Dota 2 still does the same thing with RC1. It seems my steam games do launch but still no luck actually getting the overlay to work. Tried several games and never got it. Tried -nod3d9ex with no luck. BF3 still no overlay for me. Am I supposed to be running that game or origin with a special launch option? For steam I even turned off steam community globally and no luck there.

    Are you running both Steam and Mumble as the same user account, without administrative perms? (not running it as admin)

    I've had many problems with Windows 8 and any sort of dx injection. It happens to almost every game and the only solution is to disable mumble overlay for now.
