  1. Launching an app when specific event happens (L.O.L)

    I see, thank you all very much for the help. @Colorfulstan I will definitely use this for testing purposes and while the window popping up at the desktop client makes sense, I would like to try having the window pop up at defeat or victory. I did try something when I had free time last night and would like opinions on this. I searched the forums and found an eventListener and it technically worked. I launched the app at game launch with the window minimized and had this piece of code (mainly plugged in from LOL sample app) // an event triggerd overwolf.games.events.onNewEvents.addListener(function (info) { for (var i in info.events) { if (info.events.name == 'matchStart') { overwolf.windows.restore('MainWindow') } } The window did pop up at the beginning of the match but when I tried replacing matchStart with matchEnd (played a bot game for fun last night), nothing came when the match ended. Again thank you all for the great help. This is definitely making me enjoy developing apps
  2. Launching an app when specific event happens (L.O.L)

    Ah thank you both so much for answering! Yes i was genuinely confused on the launch event. Reading around, with the event listener, is it possible to launch at match end or should i launch the app with GameLaunch and make the window appear with event listener with matchEnd? Thank you so much for your help! i was going around in circles yesterday! (P.S: matchEnd should work with bot games correct? i don't know how to test the app without actually playing a game and i don't really want to have to play a full match just for testing)
  3. Hello everyone! First time developer here and I have a question on when my window shows up for League of Legends. Looking at the sample app i see that there is a launch_events option and event name in the manifest.json "game_events": [5426], "launch_events": [ { "event": "GameLaunch", "event_data": { "game_ids": [5426] }, "start_minimized": false } ] ,I want the window for my app to appear when the match ends in league of legends (like a window saying "good job" or "better luck next time" for example) and i see that there is a matchState option in events. I changed it to this but nothing seems to be happening "launch_events": [ { "event": "matchEnd", "event_data": { "game_ids": [ 5426 ] }, "start_minimized": false }] Am I using the terms incorrectly? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
