I'm using Comodo Firewall 11.0.0.6728, running on Windows 10 Pro (Ver. 1803).

The Origin Game Client has an in-game overlay feature which is being BLOCKED by Comodo Firewall.

Specifically I am trying to get it to work with the game "Star Wars Battlefront".

After spending many hours trying to troubleshoot this issue, I know for a fact that Comodo Firewall is the problem because once Comodo Firewall is uninstalled - everything works normal again.

In my attempts to resolve this problem, I tried the following:
1. In "HIPS Rules" I went over every executable (*.exe) inside "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin" and set it as an "Allowed Application".
2. In "HIPS Rules" I went over every executable (*.exe) inside "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\STAR WARS Battlefront" and set it as an "Allowed Application".
3. In "Firewall Rules" I went over every executable (*.exe) inside "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin" and set it as an "Allowed Application".
4. In "Firewall Rules" I went over every executable (*.exe) inside "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\STAR WARS Battlefront" and set it as an "Allowed Application".

Despite doing all of the above, the problem still persists. I cannot use the Origin in-game overlay while playing any game.

Once again - only when Comodo Firewall is completely uninstalled the problem is resolved!!!

Why does Comodo Firewall have to make things so difficult?

How can I get it to stop blocking the Origin Game Client from interacting with running games besides the steps I already took above, and without completely uninstalling Comodo Firewall?

Thank you!

I changed the case in the sentence that was in a super size font back to normal. We don't allow shouting. Eric

Hi,

I sent you a reply via the private messaging system with the logs you requested.

Did you receive it? Because I couldn't see my sent message in the "Sent Items" section, even though I had received a message saying it was sent successfully.

Thanks!

I also tried temporarily to disable both HIPS & Firewall, and even when doing that the EA Origin in-game overlay was still being blocked from working.

As previously mentioned, only when Comodo Firewall is completely uninstalled would the EA Origin in-game overlay work normally.

Thank you PremJK for providing the solution once again! I will re-post it here on the forum so that other people who have this problem may be able to find it.

So by going to Advanced Protection > Miscellaneous > Don't detect shellcode injections in these applications

(Screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/NcEtBMZ )

I added the following folders just to be sure:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin\*
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\STAR WARS Battlefront\*
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\STAR WARS Battlefront\Core\*


Tried running the game again, and the problem is fixed. EA Origin in-game overlay now works as intended!
