Steam Overlay causes issues with FTL: Faster Than Light
When playing FTL, I get glitches whenever the steam overlay pops up. I haven't tested shift+tab. When "friend is now playing game" bubbles pop up in the corner, a previous store screen will randomly pop up and freeze the screen until the bubble goes back down. Sometimes, the overlay popping up will simply freeze the game.

Is that just some Information you like to share, or what is your question ? ;)
`][`arron Mar 31, 2013 @ 2:00pm 
the overlay is inaccessable for me when using FTL, just diable it, or run in a window to avoid crashes until (or if) it is fixed
drewb🐧 Apr 2, 2013 @ 6:26pm 
I was able to use the overlay in FTL without an issue. What happens for you? Do you get graphic corruption and are you running a video driver from Intel? It might be a driver issue.
Doctor Worm Apr 5, 2013 @ 9:14am 
The overlay wont even disable through steam settings. I'm using intel drivers, but they usually don't have issues.
