Steam Overlay won't work with SC
I've tried uninstalling twice, validating Steam cache, and still cannot get the overlay. Anyone know what's up? Everyone else seems to be able to get the overlay

Try... oh ♥♥♥♥, what did I do to fix this.... OH, right, try running the game in Windows Compatibility Mode. I personally used XP I think, either that or Vista. It got it working for me.
To get to that, just find the .exe file in your game folder, right click it, go to properties, and there should be a tab for compatibility.

Hope it helps!

Oh that's cute steam, replace s.h.i.t with little hearts. Aren't you so adorable.

There may be a problem with your steam itself. Have you tried it in other games?
Update: That is most probably Steam-side problem. Try it in other games, if this won't help - try reinstalling.

I get a similar problem, but the game freezes for me. So I need to Ctrl+Alt+Del to end task..
Now i did a little playing around I switched my steam overlay hot key to like F11. I then just tried for the sake of doing it using Shift+Tab while in game, it froze yet again. But F11 worked and the overlay did not crash the game.
