    I read somewhere BPG submitted a form to get the game authorized with Discord. It would be nice to see this get resolved. I've looked everywhere trying to manually add the game in their app to use the overlay, for some reason it does not show up in my games list for it to work properly.

    I submitted the information to get the game properly listed in discord which they finally got back to me on about a month ago and fixed. The overlay i believe is a different issue.

    Anyway you can push for another response? It would be really nice to have for launch, the VOIP servers are practically free.

    i think it would be a wise decision to contact the discord people and ask them for ingame voice instead of using the disciord programm itself..

    they are doing it for CU aswell..

    So contact DISCORD people asap.. and see what is possible

    "Unfortunately, it's still a wip and we're working on games from top to bottom on the most popular titles."

    Is the response i received, totally forgot to update this thread, my apologies.
    --- Post updated ---
    I'll touch base with them in the future to see if they have made any advancements and streamlined the process for it.

    Hi guys,

    Unfortunately the Discord in-game overlay is currently blocked by the anti-cheat, due to the Discord app using a hacky method of injecting the overlay into the game. We've been in contact with Discord developers and they said that changes will be made to allow us to whitelist the overlay safely. I'll ping them for possible ETA / status about this change.

    It seems like an odd thing to be blocked by anti cheat. What makes a "hacky" method?

    I guess anything that injects in a certain way is for EAC considered a possible threat and therefor blocked.

    Its not that uncommon in multiplayer games to block overlays. I have a lot of problems in the past with RivaTunner overlay in games for example.

    I was more or less suggesting that EAC is deflecting the blame by stating it was an over-site on Discord's behalf, obviously no one uses Discord for any game.

    The overlay is injected into the game process by opening a full access handle to it, creating a new memory allocation in the process, writing the target dll image path in it and then creating a remote thread to execute LoadLibrary() with the allocation as the thread parameter.
    Unfortunately this method doesn't allow safe whitelisting as it requires trusting the entire source process, which can be hijacked.

    So if someone hacked Discord they could effectively use it to get hacks in under the radar as EAC would automatically trust it?

    Lame.

    Any update on this?
