Emulator Issues #6121
Steam Overlay Support
Sorry if this is wrong, I can't seem to find how to post an improvement suggestion here, rather than report a bug.
So Dolphin could use better support for Steam's Overlay. Steam's Big Picture significantly improves emulation with its superb UI for joypad gaming and to be able to use the Overlay with Dolphin games would be great.

I've tried both OpenGL- and D3D11 backends and steam overlay works fine there for me. Though, I don't really care about steam overlay as I run Dolphin windowed but I wanted to give this a shot anyway to see if this issue is invalid or not and it appears to be invalid. Running Dolphin 3.5-1063 x64!
What backend did you run Dolphin with?

hm, so I've just done some scientific testing and I discovered where the issue lies.
If I add dolphin's exe as a non steam game and launch the game from there, I can open up the ovelay fine.
However, if I open a game directly with dolphin, avoiding the UI, as I do in the custom bat I made (converted to exe for steam), it wont work.
Of course, the whole reason I'm using steam is to eliminate the need for anything but a joypad to play such games and the mouse workaround nullifies that objective.
if it's of any importance, here is an example of the bat I'm using:
