Thank you for the link but I still can't open up steam while in game like i used to be able to. I used to be able to press Shift + Tab to open it up, and at the beginning of the game it would say that Steam Community is active or something along those lines.Tommy said:The following link you might find useful as it deals with Steam Cloud Saving .
Tommy said:Has anything been disabled or changed through Steam . This is an excerpt from part of a Steam page .
Game Overlay and Notification System
The Game Overlay System lets you jump into the Steam Community directly while in game and keeps you informed when your friends come online, join a game, or send you a message. The default shortcut to open the Steam Community while in game is Shift + Tab. You can change the shortcut by clicking the Steam menu > Settings > and go to the In-Game tab.
Customizing, Troubleshooting and Disabling the Game Overlay
You may customize what types of notifications you receive using Game Overlay.
Click Steam > Settings, select the Friends tab.
Under Notifications & Sounds uncheck Display a notification for anything you wish not to get a popup for.
You may completely disable Game Overlay by going to Steam’s Steam > Settings menu and selecting the In-Game tab. Then uncheck the Enable Steam Community In-Game checkbox.
The Game Overlay will work with third-party non-Steam games which you have added to Steam. The basic requirement is that the game uses Direct3D 7, Direct3D 8, Direct3D 9, Direct3D 10, or OpenGL for rendering. Some 2D games which use DDraw or software based rendering methods are not supported (ex/ Diablo).
It's checked. Should I just reinstall the game?Tommy said:Most likely cause = yep . Whenever you run a game from Steam all updates will need to come through them only . Any other patches from anywhere else will most likely break steam connections .When you downloaded from them it should have had the patches already in place . There is a tab in witcher 2 right click and select properties and then updates just make sure the little box is checked that says keep this game up to date or something similar .
