No idea if it was originally thought up by him or not (Probably not), but it was told to me by [member=bobman0021].

  1. Go to Steam
  2. "Add a Game"
  3. Navigate to Origin
  4. Hit OK
  5. Optional: Change the name to Battlefield 3
  6. Launch Origin through Steam
  7. Launch BF3 normally
  8. BF3 should have the Steam Overlay

Just thought I'd share

Pretty much common knowledge. I did it with Minecraft and most of my emulators.

Adding a non-steam game, yes, that's straight forward as you can add the direct executable. With this, however, you cannot use "bf3.exe". Hence the tutorial.

He is just adding origin. Pretty much origin.exe. Hence the simplicity.
