Known Issues
-If you crash at game start up please disable all overlays.
Crashing is due to a conflict with certain overlay's with certain games.
Go through the following list till you find which game causes the "conflict."

Often this no longer works because the setting is now ignored. Details: HERE
Origin
Certain games WILL NOT work UNLESS you follow these instructions
Log into Origin client
settings->in game-> Uncheck the box that says enable Origin in Game.
This setting will need to be unchecked everytime their is an update on origin.
UPlay
Just go into Uplay/Settings and unbox "Activate overlay".

EVGA Precision
IF you set the on-screen server to "Enable compatibility with modified Direct3D runtime libraries." it will PROBABLY work
Any FPS/Computer Monitoring software
Such as fraps or any software that monitors your hardware usage/heat.

Win10 App Store
HelixMod and 3Dmigoto are disabled by games in the App store, and there is no way to make them writable. Even if it's a known game, it won't work because Microsoft locks out all mods.
