Keep it on topic, keep it constructive - Threads should be constructive and have a clear topic. Replies to that topic should be relevant.

Don't see something about your question or topic after searching? Post it! (keep in mind that bumping threads from a long time ago is not recommended, post your own). Don't post about locked or deleted topics; they were deleted for a reason. No petitions, demands or "When will.." We have places for asking for games, features and we will tell you when something is coming. We don't give dates for a reason. Don't try getting around the swear filter, it's not cute or funny.

  1. Make an application as an overlay

    well, now I know what I forgot to search for xD But actually I would like to do an application anyway, since the app brings more functionality as the web app Well, I didn't meant all apps, more likely how it has to be done for applications So it would be possible to turn a winforms window into a overlay? It actually sounds so Any ideas what is needed for this? Or do you maybe know how it was done for teamspeak? I may can adapt it then for my needs.
  2. Make an application as an overlay

    Hi folks, in short, how can I turn any application installed on my PC to an overlay, which I can use with overwolf? So, for example for teamspeak. The overwolf developer made an teamspeak plugin which access the actuall installed client with all it's functionality. I would like to do this as well, for me, a text messenger, Telegram (https://telegram.org/). So, what would I have to do, so that I can show the window from telegram insde every game with an overlay?
  3. Hotkey don't want to work

    I think the default value is "false", because I see my application, just the hotkeys "don't work" Thx for the info. I'm not sure, in there a info in the API or something else that the hotkeys only work in-game? If not, maybe someone should add the info Because if I'm testing my app I do it without being in-game. Once I'm home again I'll test it. Sincerely, unconvincible
  4. Hotkey don't want to work

    No, so I guess I have to be ingame? Can I test it without being ingame?
  5. Hotkey don't want to work

    This is my full manifest { "manifest_version": 1, "type": "WebApp", "meta": { "name": "CountDown", "version": "1.0.0", "minimum-overwolf-version":"0.77.10", "author": "-ok-MrFixIt", "icon": "IconMouseOver.png", "icon_gray": "IconMouseNormal.png", "description": "Just a CountDown, nothing special :)" }, "data": { "start_window": "MainWindow", "windows": { "MainWindow": { "file": "Files/index.html", "transparent": true, "resizable": false, "size": {"width": 555, "height": 480}, "min_size": {"width": 555, "height": 480}, "max_size": {"width": 555, "height": 480} } }, "hotkeys" : { "my_cool_action": { "title": "My Cool Action", "action-type": "custom", "default": "Ctrl+Alt+C" } } } } I think that the manifest is correct And my JS looks also correct (look in the first post), don't know ^^ How to use getHotKey function? I don't know what the featureID this, do you have a example? Maybe a working example for the registerHotKey function is better Like this: - I press CTRL+PageUp and I get a message (alert) with "test" This would be enough Thx in advance. Sincerely, unconvincible
  6. Hotkey don't want to work

    Hello Community I was trying to using the hotkey feature, but it seems that they are not working or that I do anything wrong (I tihnk the second part ). This is my json file: ... "hotkeys" : { "my_cool_action": { "title": "My Cool Action", "action-type": "custom", "default": "Ctrl+Alt+C" } } And this is my javascript: function my_cool_action() { alert("hotkey test..."); } function body_onload() { <--- This function gets called once the page is ready with loading (onLoad event (in body-tag)) ... overwolf.settings.registerHotKey( "my_cool_action", function(arg) { if (arg.status == "success") { alert("This is my cool action!"); } } ); } Maybe some of you have some ideas? I tried the regular and the development build from overwolf, both wasn't working for me ;( Sincerely, unconvincible
  7. Hello Overwolf-Community, It's my first I was using overwolf . So, I successfully got overwolf working in bf3. But after I tabbed out of the game and in again I can't control anything in the game. Also the overlay wasn't working. Any ideas how to fix? Sincerely, unconvincible
