Which Games Work With In-Game And Which Don't?
I'm testing the new in-game overlay with a crap-ton of games. Granted it said to email directly, I figure this might help others that are interested in testing as well.

Overlay Notes:
When playing in windowed mode, some games lose focus.

When playing in windowed mode, the overlay can try and pretend to see the game in "full", and not scaling properly. Elements of the overlay will not show unless the game window is over that particular element.

Some games have reported to have issues with mouse click detection. Doing additional checks.

Overlay did something wonky with TF2
So far, the overlay is awesome, but it seems a bit fickle in when it allows itself to be used. I've tried it out on both Left 4 Dead games, as well as Team Fortress 2 and Guild Wars, and in all of these cases, occasionally the cursor will turn blue, but there's no actual overlay to be found.

In the case of TF2, this occurred and for some reason (though I don't know if this is at all related) the Steam overlay stopped responding. Now, my Steam overlay and my Raptr overlay do not have the same hotkeys, so I have no idea why this might have happened. Perhaps the Steam issue had nothing to do with Raptr, as I'm using the Steam UI Beta, but this had never happened to me before I tried to use the Raptr overlay.

Minor issues, but I wanted to alert you to them anyway, just in case.

Thanks for an awesome service! Looking forward to more client customization features.

Might want to make a more ordered list of that. Put all the working ones together alphabetically with a comment behind it and same goes for not working.

I'd like to push it into a nice ordered list, but the [.list] bbcode doesn't work on these forums. Thanks for the feedback there, I'll look over what I have too, just to see if it fits so we've got some concurrence.

Football Manager 2009 works fine with it. The only problem I encountered was when I activated it, the game minimized. But that happened only once and I used it for like tens of times.

If you want, I can make a nice picture for it that doesn't stretch the forums.

You can also order them without the list bbcode, just not as nice.

The problem with an image is that it would have to be re-done each revision, and each addition to the list.

Raptr in-game overlay works with Civilization 4 (I'm playing the Complete Collection, so all expansions present) EXCEPT that pop-up notifications crash the game. After disabling in-game pop-up notifications, it was smooth sailing!

Raptr in-game overlay also seems to work A-OK with Aion - though I did not try re-enabling pop-up notifications, so I can't say as to whether those are working in Aion.

Here's a problem I'm having, though: when playing Civ 4, I started the game through the Steam shortcut, and was able to get both the Steam and Raptr overlays running together, and could switch between them at will. Very, very nice!

When playing Aion through the Steam shortcut, however, Raptr did not seem to recognize it or allow me to use the in-game overlay. When I ran Aion through a regular non-Steam shortcut, the Raptr overlay worked just fine.

I would love to be able to get the Raptr overlay working in tandem with the Steam overlay for Aion. No idea why it would work with Civ4 through Steam but not Aion through Steam. (For reference, both were physical disc purchases, not actually purchased via Steam itself.)
