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.

    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.

        Installed software and tried to get the cam overlay to work while playing Destiny 2. Have the overlay enabled but nothing is showing while ingame.

        Recently updated to cam 3.7.1 after just installing an rx470 black edition and now CAM does not show my GPU on the home screen. Also can not use the CAM overlay or the games tab to show performances. Overlay is enabled but will not come up. Playing PUBG mainly.

        Can't get the games overlay working for Doom 2016.
        I have DirectX 12 installed.
        "CAM Overlay" is enabled with display info: FPS/Avg. FPS/CPU/GPU. But it doesn't show up in-game. And nothing shows up in the "Games" tab of CAM.
        Running CAM V3.6.6

        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.

        You lazy fcks, Stop telling ppl to update their DirectX and start working on your're crappy software instead

        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.
