Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Help me out?

There's this thing... It's like a program that lets you keep your IM clients open while in-game and I cannot for the fucking life of me recall what the hell it is. Someone help me out here.

I posted this in the MMO forum, feeling it to be pertinent to their... thing, i guess, but that forum moves like old people fuck: slow, and sloppy.

    add the game's executable to your steam library, and launch it from there, and it will use the steam overlay I think.

    yeah. add the game as a shortcut in steam, and it'll just be there by default

    My computer is stupid but sometimes when I play a non steam game and I access the overlay, it's sluggish and I have to hit shift-tab more than once. I have no idea if this is a problem for anyone else, I just thought I'd give you a fair warning.

    I wouldn't expect it to work perfectly all the time with games that weren't built with it in mind, yeah.

    yeah once I figured out how to add non-steam games to steam, I'm pretty much always on steam

    unless I'm playing SC2 because for some reason steam lags the computer to hell and back

    I dunno, my computer wouldn't turn off last night and when I started it this morning it decided to run a check disk thing all by itself.

    I was thinking all of the above.

    Actually I have a shitty harddrive that I can't replace at this moment, and everything just needs to be updated.
    I'm over due for a reformat too I think. Honestly I got enough on my plate, I don't care all that much.

    i have a logitech g15 keyboard with a screen you can connect to msn or whatever and use it to chat while playing games

    thats what i hear anyway
    requires friends though
    and 32bit windows last time i checked
    so theres two problems with the technology right there
