  1. Windows scrolling problem

    I started having scrolling problems with overwolf windows. At first i just thought it was the browser, but then i installed the facebook app and it had the same problem. Most of the time the scrolling is broken. It will either randomly scroll up or down a page regardless of how i turn my mouse wheel, it will get stuck on a point and if i try to scroll using mouse wheel or drag the scroll bar with the cursor it just snaps back to that point. Rarely, if i just sit idle, the page will very slowly start scrolling down on its own. I know its not my mouse because this doesnt happen on other programs. I tried restarting, reinstalling but nothing works. I havent managed to find anyone else having these issues so i hope to find help here.
  2. Elite: Dangerous horizons issue

    Hello, I recently installed Overwolf for elite dangerous horizons which recently came out. May i mention that i know for a fact some people in the community i play with are having NO issues what so ever. I boil it down to either my machine or its just me being an idiot. I digress here is my issue: - I have installed the client, had to manually add elite into Overwolf game section as it didn't find it. - Continued to add some apps such as Spotify, ED board. - Go to games launch the game. - Game launches the Elite dangerous LAUNCHER window... - Choose x64 bit horizons - Game launches ok, the overlay tab (little semi circle stays for about 2 seconds before disapearing on the appearance of the logo_ - after that there is no way ive found to show the tab (ive tried CTRL+TAB and SHIFT F2 with those Hotkeys respectively ticked in the settings menu) - Ive tried reinstalling Overwolf as well. - tabbed out of game to see if OW is running, it is.. it just sits on my desktop instead. I would love if someone would point out what im doing wrong here and i do hope its not hardware specific. Im on windows 7 -GPU NVIDIA GTX 780SC i dont think you'd need to see anything other than the GPU But if you need more info please dont hesitate to ask.
  3. Say I have an Overwolf app that consists of two windows. Now I want to have one in my active game window and the other one visible on my desktop, but not in the game window. Something like this: http://oi67.tinypic.com/10qxb2d.jpg Seems not to be done with just "desktop_only" and "in_game_only".
  4. Child window not receiving permissions

    Hey, I recently faced a problem with the windows: It happens when I try to do "overwolf.games.events.onInfoUpdates.addListener". On my main window, this works and the events get logged, but when I move the same code into one of the subchilds the code is never called and the following got logged into the console: The property 'overwolf.games' requires the GameInfo permission. But the permission is granted, otherwise I wouldnt get the events on the main window. Please look over this. Greetings
  5. I have windows 10 pro 64bit, I got Overwolf to work in in BF4... *note: I did make sure the TS3 Control plugin was turned on and TS3 was restarted. But one problem, can not get the teamspeak 3 channel overlay to show properly in my BF4 game. If I click on the full View via Overwolf in game it works, but I just want Channel to work , so I can see who is talking when in game. Don't want to use the full view. Any help I would be greatful!!!
  6. An app you could open windows start menu with or a simulation of it so you could start programs ingame without minimizing or quitting the window. Would this be possible and if yes then do it. Or code more cool apps for games. like for GTA a map what you could mark your intrests. Or a Minecraft mod list or Minecraft mob spawn guide or Black ops 2 zombies mystery box location. or Cities skylines tutorials list. or battlefield 3/4 best shooting positions. or Facebook/instagram/twitter app. Cool would be playin android games ingame. Or other browser games. Thanx. If you liked any ideas please chek the poll. I apprieciate your answers. ps sry for bad english. I'm better in speaking it.
  7. Okay, this is probably the wrong Category but for some reason I cannot post in the developer category, sorry. So I am trying to make my own app. I have thoroughly followed guides. I created a NS plugin for my app, but here's the problem: the windows are completely bugged. The "can_resize" property ("true" or "false") isn't respected. The "width" and "height" property either. So I tried resizing within the javascript, didn't work either. Moving and Restoring works, but not resizing. Even when overwolf.windows.changeSize returns success, that the property "width" and "height" of the window has changed (with overwolf.windows.getCurrentWindow), the size is still the same. Now I would gladly post my manifest.json or my javascript, but this is not just a single bug. I think an overhaul of the overwolf.windows have to be done. The App contest is really interesting, I have nice ideas but if I cannot successfully implement them, it will be hard. (PD: Is there anyway we can get a file API without using a NS plugin?)
