    Any game can be added to steam as a non-steam game, but games like this/mmo's usually always have launchers. I added the darkfall exe to steam but cant get steam overlay working. I'd like to have the RoA map site open in the steam browser while I play. Anyone get it to work?

    I was able to get steam overlay working since I occasionally play with a steam controller. I just had to make sure both steam and ROA were ran as admin

    Hate to bump this from two years back, but I'm just now getting into RoA and I'm trying to launch with a Steam Overlay. Setting the launcher and darkfall.exe to Admin doesn't work. Heck, even using the steamoverlay.vbs you can use to get it to work with Blizzard games doesn't seem to work, as you get an Easy Anticheat error when it tries to launch the game.

    Has anyone found a solution for this?

    I'm not sure I haven't launched through Steam in a while I know that if you launch the game and login that you will lose the playing status on Discord. That that can be solved by just launching an additional client which you need to use launch as admin for and it will show you as playing the game as the lobby is the recognized part not the game.

    It's less the status that I'm looking for than the overlay. I'd rather see some of the screen while I chat than none at all.

    Not sure if it still works but you used to be able to run in windowed mode with a custom resolution. This post discusses it but it's a couple years old but maybe it can give you some help just run Steam Chat on the side.

    Be sure to join the ROA Discord and let the Devs know when you're streaming, so they can alert the guys in the discord :D
