Have I ever said how much I love the Steam overlay you can bring up in games? Because, I do. Alot. Whatever genius thought this up should get a raise.

Judging by the Valve employee handbook, I expect he/she did :)

Indeed, it's a small idea that makes a huge difference.

Too bad it only works 20% of the time.

I'd say around 95%. What are you doing that's breaking it? :S

My only complaint (which isn't even its fault) is that I keep bringing it up whenever I play an FPS and try to look at scores while I'm crouching =P

Scotch just change your crouch key lol. I thought every switched it, otherwise sticky keys goes off (Im too lazy to turn it off)

I hope they add a feature to record videos using the overlay sometime soon :)

Steam is ok, except when it decides to load for 30 minutes or block my game while the map is loading.

@Mcrich114: Nah, I like it where it is.

It could just be my shitty ass processor that breaks it 95% of the time, but I find unless I set it to high priority, it doesn't come up until a dozen seconds later. And it rarely stays up for more then a few seconds after it's up.

Snowball reports the exact same thing, I guess our machines are too low end for it to work effectively... Shame though, xfire overlay works flawlessly.
