What a nice way to savor PSO days, and meseta pso2 you can not fail with a Dreamcast Keyboard and Mouse likely lol. I didn't try but I would highly doubt it, gameguard is notoriously trashy, I believe steam's overlay only works on Steam because it needed to be whitelisted over there. Actually it doesn't allow the big image mode one you need to configure the control in sport so you Need to Make all changes when not enjoying it is sort of a hassle

You have to turn "use the huge picture overlay when using a steam input controller from the desktop" from the steam settings, in the interface section. In addition, you should run steam as secretary, because pso2 runs in admin mode.

Yeah, I use the first option, this is the only game I've ever seen do this. It's 99% likely due to GameGuard's trashy cheat protection, I am honestly hoping they ditch that monstrosity at NGS. I was a bit shocked to see it tbh, I haven't seen any other game running that thing probably because circa 2010 I want say. Not to mention things regarding matches should never be running as admin, this has been common PC programming practice because the Windows Vista age, we are way past this stage and shouldn't even have to talk about it. Frankly I am surprsied MS let the game launch in their shop with that instant in it since they are partnered in the US ya know?

Thanks for the thoughts, in any case I am not starting Steam using admin mode however nothing using a web browser built in if ever do that it's a massive security hole sadly. Tbh I noticed that the PSO patcher really uses embedded online explorer to fill in it's bottom half, largely due to a script error that's been occurring on launch of the Steam build every moment, that's actually also a security issue especially since IE never has upgrades anymore.

Though I am happy I can find any overlay on now as it's on Steam formally, that way I could actually use the control, wasn't really quite doable about the MS Store variation. Speaking of admin however it constantly asks for this before beginning the match, did on the MS Store version also, they really need to pso2 sales fix that, I think that's another GameGuard left over too unfortunately.
