      In General
      Be respectful! There's another person on the other end of that conversation! The forums are a place to discuss anything related to Overwolf and beyond but want this to be a place where people feel comfortable to participate and have fun! Keep it on topic, keep it constructive - Threads should be constructive and have a clear topic. Replies to that topic should be relevant. Bumping a thread without adding relevant information is not considered constructive. Bumping a thread from a long time ago is also not constructive (Overwolf updates every 2 weeks, things change). Attacks or Accusations are not acceptable - Attacking another person is unacceptable, the circumstances are irrelevant, just don't do it. Read the topic - Know what people are talking about in the thread. Stick to the given topic and don't derail it. Search - We have a great search function, use it before you post a new thread as it's possible someone has asked your question before and there's info on it. 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. This is not a place to break NDA's, talk about something illegal or break any law from any country. We will contact the necessary parties involved and you will be pursued to the extent of the law. No spam. You will be banned and your post deleted. Please write in English. This is an international forum and we'd like everyone to be able to participate.
      Bad Behavior Insults, racial slurs, profanity, vulgarity. Trolling - You know who you are, and we will find you. Nudity, porn or anything obscene. Flaming - We don't have a trained fireman on staff, so don't do it. No advertising - No one wants to buy that shirt off of you, or that WoW gold. No insulting any religion (fake, real, or imagined), sexual orientation, gender or culture. No talking about drugs or performing illegal activities. Impersonation - Don't do it, people find out and you end up looking stupid.

  1. Competition page link error

    Hi So while I was browsing the contest page, I noticed a bad link on the rules page. On number 2 in the Eligibility section, the link that refers to the "Developer's terms" links to a page that says: "Not found Requested page not found" The page links to http://developers.overwolf.com/terms/developers-terms/ when I assume you intended to link to http://developers.overwolf.com/terms/developer-terms/. http://imgur.com/gallery/gWaH7
  2. Using Replay HUD for development

    Ok, thanks for your opinions. I wasn't actually thinking of entering for the media API, but I think I'll go for it!
  3. Hey developers! I'm wondering if I'm able to use Replay HUD for my own development purposes. I'd like to be able to use Replay HUD to automatically save a video, based on a user's response from a dialog box that appears after he's killed. I assume that this is not possible and that a lot of people are going to say that it's not necessary, but I wanted to know anyways.
  4. Not receiving Robocraft in-game events

    Wow, I'm such an idiot . Thank you so much. All this time, I thought the API was broken, but it turns out I was broken. Thank you so much! They should really update their documentation, because it's really vague what "Category: playerData" means. Thank you!
  5. Not receiving Robocraft in-game events

    Ok, thanks for letting us know, but I still can't get my code to work. I'm trying to get basic game information, but I can't figure it out. Here's my code: battleStats.html: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type"> <title>Battle Stats</title> <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="style.css"> <script type="text/javascript" src="windowManagement.js"></script> <script> // Code for an alternative starting window function openMainWindow() { overwolf.windows.obtainDeclaredWindow("MainWindow", function(result) { if (result.status == "success") { overwolf.windows.restore(result.window.id, function(result){} ); } }); closeWindow(); } //------------------------------------------------------------------------------- // Test: overwolf.games.events.onNewEvents.addListener( function (value) { var i = 0; for(; i < value.events.length; i++){ console.log('event name'); console.log(value.events[i].name); } } ); // My code var GameInfo = overwolf.games.getRunningGameInfo( function(value) { document.getElementById("test").innerHTML = value.title; } ); var username = overwolf.games.events.Robocraft.playerData.username; document.getElementById("name").innerHTML = username; </script> </head> <body> <div onmousedown="dragResize('BottomRight');"> <div id="content" onmousedown="dragMove();"> <div class="outlined"> <h1>Game Stats</h1> <p id="test">Robocraft is not loaded, or there are other games running.</p> <p>Your player name is <span id="name">unknown</span></p> <p>Your last battle was a <span id="lastBattleStatus">unknown</span></p> </div> <p><span class="actionButton" onclick="openMainWindow();">Close</span></p> </div> </div> </body> </html> manifest.json: { "manifest_version": 1, "type": "WebApp", "permissions": ["GameInfo"], "meta": { "name": "testApp", "version": "0.0.3", "minimum-overwolf-version":"0.77.10", "author": "stef1261", "icon": "IconNormal.png", "icon_gray": "IconGray.png", "description": "A Robocraft app." }, "data": { "start_window": "MainWindow", "windows": { "MainWindow": { "file": "battleStats.html", "transparent": true, "resizable": false, "start_position": {"Top": 100, "Left": 300}, "size": {"width": 275, "height": 333}, "min_size": {"width": 275, "height": 333}, "max_size": {"width": 275, "height": 333} } } } } The error says: The property 'overwolf.games' requires the GameInfo permission. even though it is clearly included and also says this error message: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'playerData' of undefined Am I using the API wrong?
  6. Not receiving Robocraft in-game events

    This is horrific. Only two days left till we have to submit our prototype to the Nvidia app contest and we never even had a chance to even test our application. If you knew the Robocraft API was not working, why did you include it in the games with the new APIs? I've searched around a lot of Overwolf and Robocraft forum threads and nothing so far. The only thing I've seen regarding this issue is that a patch will be released "sometime within the next few months". Maybe I'm being too strict about this. If the API doesn't work then how will our submission process work? Is it ok to send it in with the broken API? Because I am yet to see some code that works with it. I've got a great idea, and I'm still working on the implementation of it. If I don't get any information on this, I'll just send it in without it being able to interact with Robocraft.
