    Hi there, Im trying to add Steamworks features to my game, but I can't get the overlay to pop up when I run on my Macbook. I've even created a brand new project just to test the Steam integration in isolation, and still cannot get it to work. I run the game, I expect to see the overlay pop up (and to be able to trigger it with Shift + Tab) but nothing happens.

    Im following these steps:
    1. Create a new project
    2. Point GM at my Steamworks sdk folder location (sdk version is 1.42)
    3. Check "Enable Steam" in the macOS platform settings
    4. Add ID 480 to the "Steam ID" field in general settings (I have been told this ID will work for testing purposes, so Im using it instead of my actual app id)
    5. Uncheck the "Build for Mac App Store" option in macOS Packaging settings
    6. Run the app

    The result is that nothing happens, the steam toast doesn't pop up. Here's the section of output logs that might be relevant, please let me know if you have any ideas about what could be causing this issue. Thanks!!
