It is opening with steam (shows that you are playing M&B), but right after you click 'Play cRPG' its not on steam anymore
At least here, on win8 :(
It's the same like I wrote earlier with adding non-steam game

The thing that works is opening launcher two times (on first click 'play crpg' then alt+tab and open launcher again - from steam after using your idea)

hm, weird...
sadly I cant help you with that behaviour, my little "hack" works fine on win7...
just one more reason not to upgrade I guess  :rolleyes:

Wow.  Now doubly thankful I bought Warband at Taleworlds and not Steam so I can avoid this crap

I can't get the overlay to work with Windows 8.1 and I've tried everything.

After spending like an hour on this, I tried Spleen's hack, and it works. Windows 8.1.

Yeah, but that's for tricking Steam into thinking you are playing Mount & Blade: Warband, not cRPG. I want the overlay with cRPGLauncher (my non-steam game shortcut), like I had on Windows 7 without issues.

When I launch the shortcut, Friends says I am playing cRPGLauncher, but, as soon as the launcher is closed and the game is launched, Friends says I'm not playing anymore and so I can't use the overlay.

I got the overlay in the game, not only the launcher.

However, when I tried again today, the game crashed when I connected to a server, and now the overlay no longer works. I'll experiment some more and see if I can figure it out.

*EDIT* My installation somehow became corrupt (missing .dlls). After I repaired it and tried to redo the hack, it no longer enabled the overlay. So I am conceding for now.

Got windows 7.

If I add the normal launcher it says I'm paying c-rpg when I start. But when I press c-rpg it goes back to a normal "online" status.

Plis send into aid.
I've read so far that I need to rename my mount and blade.exe ? as it uses the mount and blade old.exe?
May there be Darkness where there is light.
