      Code of Conduct - Rules you should read   02/25/2017

      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.
      What will we do if you break a rule? Warnings - You get only one. Thread/Post deletion - We delete your thread/post from the forums. Suspension - Temporary forum ban. Account termination - Permanent forum ban. Legal action or report violations to the appropriate legal authorities.

  1. media replay system requirements

    ReplayHUD shows a warning message if the user isn't using a GPU or iGPU encoder - but as you've guessed - it can run regardless at the risk of frame drops.
  2. media replay system requirements

    Hey dude, Our Media API's aren't related to ShadowPlay - AFAIK, ShadowPlay is just an implementation by Nvidia (i.e. their own recording apps). In terms of using the Media API, here are a few guidelines that might shed some light: Use the overwolf.streaming namespace in order to: stream to Twitch or record video files to the local drive. Use the overwolf.media.replays namespace in order to implement replay-related apps (don't ask why we separated between these two namespaces ) overwolf.media.videos - contains tools for editing video files (like splitting large videos to smaller videos) And then, if you want to use streaming/replays - the steps would be: register to the relevant events - for example: overwolf.streaming.onStopStreaming,onStreamingError, onStreamingWarning (see events for replays) Call: overwolf.streaming.getStreamEncoders to get a list of supported video encoders - pay extra attention to the "enabled" fields per encoder - this is how you know if your computer supports GPU encoders like Nvidia NvEnc or AMD AMF Hope this helps
  3. Please send the app via email - I can't see it here.
  4. Hey aRestless, Just to get this straight - you have two Overwolf windows - each of them is creating it's own web-server?
  5. Bloatware

    I must say that from our experience - AMD has, by FAR, more driver crashes than NVIDIA and Intel...
  6. Overwolf causing massive fps drop

    Hey, Sorry to hear about this. Do you use ReplayHUD or any specific Overwolf app?
  7. AMD VCE support

    Hey, Just FYI - it always existed (by hidden): http://support.overwolf.com/knowledge-base/enable-amd-beta-amf-encoder/ We actually went with the AMD AMF encoder (the latest and greatest) but some users experienced crashes while initializing the library. Seems like AMD removed support for AMD VCE since Catalyst version 15.7 anyway... Also - we are now starting work on improving the AMD AMF support - so check it out again in a few more weeks.
  8. Tail game log in Overwolf App

    FYI - the new "tail" API is now on our master branch.
  9. Overwolf sample plugin not working!

    I'm afraid not - although it was always something on our TODO list. Maybe you can find a workaround though? What are you trying to achieve?
  10. Overwolf sample plugin not working!

    Does this app work for you? (https://owtemp.s3.amazonaws.com/sample%20app.zip) Regarding HTTP request - is there an HTTP server on the localhost? Try to use: http://developers.overwolf.com/documentation/#ExtensionExternallyConnectable(externally_connectable) in the manifest to allow CORS access to localhost then it should work.
  11. Overwolf sample plugin not working!

    Hi, Can you open the devtools window (ctrl+shift+i on the app's window) and type in the console: navigator.plugins.refresh(false); Then reload the page (F5) see if it works. Make sure you take the latest io plugin version - we released a new version yesterday. You could wrap cURL - although XmlHttpRequest (native javascript) should suffice - what are you trying to achieve?
  12. Tail game log in Overwolf App

    Hola, Please use the plugin version from this branch: https://github.com/overwolf/simple-io-plugin/tree/special_ha_patch It now has these two methods: plugin.listenOnFile("id", "filename", skipToEnd (true/false), function(id, status, data) { if (status) { console.log("File " + id ": " + data); } }); and: plugin.stopFileListen("id");
  13. Overwolf windows refreshment issues

    Awesome - we'll check this out. Thanks!
  14. Overwolf windows refreshment issues

    Hi Rednight, I apologize for teh delay - I was under the impression that we contacted you. I'll ask our community manage to contact you so that we can talk in a private chat and fix this.
  15. Overwolf windows refreshment issues

    Hey, thanks a lot for the detailed explanation - we really appreciate it! Looking at the second video (the store) I can see a grid (lines forming squares on top of the store window) - this is usually due to the DPI not being on "Smaller - 100% (default)" (http://imgur.com/wOIPjNF) I know you said you changed it - but sometimes a restart of Windows is required after changing DPI (or at least log-off/Log on from User). Another question: is Windows Aero mode enabled? Because, when it is disabled, there might be a performance hit. Thanks!
