View Full Version : Overlays not working

11-21-2017, 12:05 AM

I've got Uplay version of R6 Siege and I play it with overlay steam (like any non-steam game) since the beginning.
But since the last update (today), the overlay steam doesn't work anymore. Any idea? It's very uncomfortable to play without it...

Since the update today Steam overlay no longer works. Considering I bought this on steam, I am pissed of that this has been disabled.

Can you fix it now please?
Its making me have to alt-tab out of the game to talk to friends.

I bought the game on steam so I have no friends on Uplay, and I always use Shift+Tab to talk to friends via the steam overlay.

I came back from work today and its not working? has something changed?

Uplay overlay isn't working and most importantly steam overlay isnt.

Wtf is going on

Dont know if its Uplay or Battle eye but completely not working since yesterdays update
Its not Steam cos the overlay works in other games
& i know there are already a few threads about this but the more noise we make maybe Ubi will fix it

Hi there,

What version of the game do you have? Is this the Uplay version added to Steam as a None-Steam game?

- Cheers

Hi Ubi-Teech
Its both Steam & Non Steam Versions if you read the various posts,
There are lots of people on the steam forums posting about the issue, as well as on Reddit too
Some people have the Steam version and some have the Uplay version.
Mine is the Uplay version & worked fine till yesterday added to steam as a non steam game

If you want to try getting round this and have a Steam Controller, if you re-create your desired settings in desktop mode and launch Steam and then Rainbow Six it works for me

Would still like it if UBI would fix what they broke though

Uplay version added to Steam as a none-steam game. It worked before the last update of the game.

In Italy at least, the update released 2 or 3 days ago broke the steam overlay and the ability to use the steam controller configurator.

Bought siege and playing it through the UPLAY client, the superimposed steam overlay (used linking the UPLAY account to steam as well as the game itself with the command "add non-steam game to steam library) doesn't work anymore. Work like a charm until before the last update.

Please fix?

Im guessing this will just be forgotten about by ubi.....

Can you confirm if this this still happens on a clean windows boot.

With clean window boot I can't launch steam so I can't confirm fi it's happen.
Same problem since last update.
Please fix
