I been having issues with the steam overlay and achievements not popping up in games like Batman and Borderlands anyone have any idea why this is happening? my overlay button it F1 and i know it works when i try other games.

I've had games not displaying the overlay when changing the default keys. I use the Home key and it doesn't work in Darksiders unless i revert back to the shift-tab keys.

Putting the overlay on the F1 key is a brilliant idea... Shift Tab is horribly inefficient.

Borderlands on PC is incredibly bad so anything not working on there doesn't surprise me, but Batman may be due to it using GFWL. I know that always screws up everything. If you go into the GFWL settings while playing Batman you may have Achievements turned off. I believe the GFWL overlay button is defaulted to the "Home" key, and, while I can't say for certain, I could have sworn that the Steam overlay gets turned off on GFWL games.

Did you happen to solve the problem for Borderlands? I'm having the same problem with it.
