Missing steam overlay


Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome,


So I guess a little history.  About 2 years ago, or so, a friend convinced me to try a Mod called Darkness Falls.  I loved it, but I wanted to go back to playing Vanilla after a while.  I experienced a little bit of trouble removing the mod.  It was a while ago, so my memory is a bit hazy about the details, but I eventually managed to get it removed and back playing Vanilla 7 days.

However, something wasn't quite right.  My steam overlay was missing and I can non longer seem to access to it.  I cannot find my logs either.  I've searched high and low through my PC and I am turning up empty.  Weirder still, is when I browse my file explorer to find the folder users/skrem/appdata it turns up completely missing, yet the game appears to load a file from that location ?  I see this by pressing the ~ key at the menu of the game.   I don't understand, but something is afoot.  I can't seem to resolve this.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled both the game, and steam, multiple times since removing the mod and it turns out to be exactly the same problem.  Only on 7 days.  I'm fairly certain the mod caused this problem, or I did, by doing something stupid.  Either way, 7 days is the only game I have steam overlay problems with and It's been a thorn in my side for a long time.

I'd like to figure it out, and I'd love to receive some help to do so.


Thanks for listening to my problems.  Cheers,

The other thing that you need to check is your Windows Explorer settings. By default, the appdata folder is a hidden folder. You need to check the box ‘Show Hidden Files’ (I think that’s what it’s called). Any of your Windows updates could have unchecked that box.
