CAM 3.3.5 Overlay not working for most games!

The overlay isn't working with most of my games which is odd because it was working just fine about 2 weeks ago. I think it might have been an update that caused it to stop working but the only game it works on at thew moment is Overwatch.

    Hi there, please be sure you are on the latest version of CAM from camwebapp.com. The most current version is 3.5.3

    The overlay requires DirectX Runtime to be installed.
    Please install DX Runtime and then restart your PC and see if the overlay works. The link below will take you to the download site for the installer.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

    Also make sure that you have tried manually enabling the overlay with the short keys (Shift + O). These shortcut keys can be changed from settings in CAM as well.

    If the instructions above does not work please let us know which games the overlay is not working on.

        Cam is causing major problems with Kf2, crashing, major lag spikes and the overlay doesn't work, as soon as I shut cam off, the game runs smooth no crashing or lag spiking.
        Cam just doesn't work...

        Hi there, please let us know what games are not working. We are aware of the issues with PUBG and Blizzard games at the moment so if these are the games then rest assure we are aware and are investigating as we speak".

        Not a single word since September 2017. Nice work.. I'm amazed how crappy you're support/feedback is.

        Hello everybody, please be aware that some games have an anti-cheat mechanism which can sometimes conflict with the CAM FPS overlay. We are currently working to fix this issue with many companies, but it is a process which takes some time and communication between the developer and NZXT. Thank you for informing us of the games with which it is not working. We are continuing to work with this issue.

        Another for not working Diablo 3.

        Or hire a real programmer.

        Rainbow Six Siege the overlay is not working. I tried reinstalling CAM, I tried installing DX runtime then restarting. I went through every setting of that program and it will not work. Please help NZXT. You have a great product but the overlay is making promises you cant keep.

        Still no fix for this? The two titles I play most are ones that are affected. PUBG and WoW.

        Eric,

        I think CAM won't work if the users have other software that provides fps overlay, like Gforce Experience, Steam, RivaTuner and other programs like these, from manufacturers like Asus, MSI, Gygabite and so on. It wasn't working for me as well, I just disabled fps overlay in those programs, got in the game and Pressed Shift + O in game and done, working.

        Its not working on diablo 3 and it is not detecting my GPU temp (Nvidia GTX 1050i). please make it work.

        Updating it won't help, DirectX Runtime is installed... it works for me with only one game Mount and Blade Warband of the 104 games I tried it on.... I'm very sorry to say that at this moment i'm not building anymore pc for people with NZXT hardware because of CAM... I love the idea, the product is terrible.
