  1. Overwolf lost nearly all games

    Hello, after I did not use Overwolf for some months I wanted to start it again. I searched in the Windows 10 start menu for Overwolf and clicked the Overwolf icon, but nothing happened. So I downloaded and installed Overwolf again. I went to my library where I had 12 games. I scanned for installed games and after that my list just has 6 entries. I checked the list of supported games and saw that many of my games are missing, like: Dying Light The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Styx: Master of Shadows Here I named just some entries. All games are also listed in the Windows Control Panel. I have all games installed to E:\ My Steam library is installed on E:\Steam\SteamApps\common The strange thing is that 3 Steam games are found: Far Cry 3 Just Cause 2 Torchlight II But not the rest of my Steam games (although they are supported). And there are some BUGS: I have uninstalled Just Cause 2 (in that folder there is only a "*.mdmp" file) and installed "Just Cause 3" some months ago, but "Just Cause 2" is found. in the list of supported games all "Just Cause" games are missing (but "Just Cause 2" is detected as installed). What can I do so all my games are found when scanning for games? I don't want to add them all manually. Regards OLLI
  2. Overwolf lost nearly all games

    Hello, I wrote above that I will NOT search all my installed games (about 50 games) in that list. And that I will not manually add each game. I will send you some examples of my Steam games (not representing all installed games): Dying Light The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Far Cry 4 Sniper Elite 3 Styx: Master of Shadows Torchlight These strange thing is that Torchlight is not found but Torchlight II is found! I have two steam libraries: D:\Steam\steamapps\common This is a hard disk where I have moved games that I don't play at the moment Here I have installed - Torchlight - Torchlight II - Far Cry 4 E:\Steam\SteamApps\common This is a SSD where I have all games installed (SSD is faster, but due to limited capacities I added a second library to D:) So you should allow me to add custom folders where my installed games can be found. The tool GeForce Experience from NVIDIA has such an option. Regards OLLI
  3. Overwolf lost nearly all games

    Hello @ChriSKate, after uninstalling Overwolf (and the user proeferences) and installing it again, I just see 4 games installed after scanning for known games. 3 of them are None-Steam games and 1 of them is a Steam game. I really don't know why Overwolf just finds 1 Steam game although all Steam games are in the same folder (E:\Steam\SteamApps\common) Seems like Oversolf is buggy here? Manually searching if all my 84 steam games and about 10 None-Steam games are supported and then adding them manually is too much work! So if the automatic detection is not working them I will uninstall Overwolf. OLLI
  4. Overwolf lost nearly all games

    Hello, never ever I will search all my installed games in this list manually! The strange thing is that Overwolf detects some of the Steam games, but not all. Is there a way to delete all my settings and start from scratch? Uninstalling Overwolf is no problem, but where do you store all settings? OLLI
  5. Facebook chat does not connect

    Since the FB chat is no longer working, I paused using Overwolf (until you have full FB and Skype support). Sorry, but I need a tool where I can get IMs ingame and answer them.
  6. Facebook chat does not connect

    Hello, in my opinion you should use the web versions of the chat clients. The multi-messenger service Franz (http://meetfranz.com/) allows multiple chat protocols: Facebook Messenger, Skype, Steam, WhatsApp, WeChat,Telegram, Google hangouts and many others (in total 23 services). At the moment I don't use Overwolf anymore because Facebook and Skype are no longer working. If you implement the web versions of all messenger platforms then you just need to open the URL in the internal browser and that`s it. No more changes need to be done on your side when the chat services change something on their protocol. Greetings OLLI
  7. Skype Portable

    Hello, I am using Skype Portable (packaged by PortableApps.com). You get it here: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/skype_portable Reasons why I use the portable version: no installation needed not affecting my system (no registry changes, no other changes in the system) better system performance just need to start it without installing it It would be very cool if Overwolf would support Skype Portable. There are many users that use Skype and Overwolf. Greetings OLLI
  8. Import Gametime

    Hello, it is very frustrating that Overwolf is not able to import the game time from other clients. This way I am missing many many hours in my profile. The first client I want to mention is Raptr. If you look at my profile (http://raptr.com/OLLI_S/games?sort_by=hours_played) then you see that I have 3,683 hours tracked in Raptr. Maybe you allow to import the play time from the Raptr Profile? The second client is Steam. I see 880 hours in my profile (http://www.mysteamgauge.com/account?username=OLLI_S) Would be fine if you allow to import these hours too. I really love Overwolf and I am no longer using Raptr. Would be great when I have my play times in Overwolf. Greetings OLLI
  9. Facebook chat does not connect

    Hello, the best way would be to use the web versions of the messengers: Facebook Messenger: https://www.messenger.com/ Skype: https://web.skype.com WhatsApp: https://web.whatsapp.com/ Steam Chat: https://steamcommunity.com/chat/ Google Hangouts: https://hangouts.google.com/ This way you just provide a "web browser" for the original messengers. You never have to change anything if the messengers are updated. And you never have problems that some API is shut down and you can no longer use the messenger. Greetings OLLI
  10. Facebook chat does not connect

    Hello, there are some multi-messenger services like Harvester or Franz (http://meetfranz.com/) that support Whatsapp, Facebook, Skype, Steam and other services. They both are just wrapper for the web versions of these messengers. So maybe this is an option- I stopped using Overwolf since Facebook and Skype are no longer working and tracking the game time for most of my games is not working (and there is no way to import my Steam play time). Recording screenshots and videos also works with Geforce Experiance. If these things are working again then I give Overwolf an other try but at the moment it is useless for me. Greetings OLLI
  11. Facebook chat does not connect

    Since FB chat is down I am no longer using Overwolf. Facebook and Skype are my main communication channels and both are no longer working in Overwolf. Greetings OLLI A disappointed Overwolf User
  12. Overwolf Game Requests

    I request "Just Cause 3"
  13. Facebook chat does not connect

    Hello, I received an update of Overwolf today but the problem is still existing. Please fix soon, most of my friends use Facebook and no other protocol. OLLI
  14. Facebook chat does not connect

    Besides the login issues with Facebook this would be an awesome feature. I am also very frustrated that I can not chat ingame using Overwolf when Steam is running.
  15. Facebook chat does not connect

    Hello, I have the same problem here! ​The login data are definitely OK, because I pasted them from KeePass (password manager). And I did use my Facebook Username, not the email. Please fix this issue soon! Thank you ! Greetings OLLI
  16. Steam Play-Time not correct

    Hello, In the past I did not have my Steam games in "My Library" in Overwolf. The library was nearly empty. Now Overwolf released some updates and now I have many of my Steam games in my library. But the play time is always "nada". In steam I have play time for these games. Please update the play time from my Steam account. I have added my login data in Overwolf (for the Steam Chat) so Overwolf can access my account. Greetings OLLI
  17. Steam Play-Time not correct

    Hello, as I have written above there is the page SteamGauge (http://www.mysteamgauge.com) that shows your complete library including the play time. You just have to enter the username. For my profile you find the data here: http://www.mysteamgauge.com/account?username=OLLI_S ​ And please also allow to import the play-time from Raptr and Xfire. I used both in the past and now switched to Overwolf. I think an import makes Overwolf more attractive to users and makes the decision to switch much easier. Greetings​ OLLI
  18. Steam Play-Time not correct

    Hello, Overwolf is up to date (I checked for updates). ARK is in my Ovewolf Library and I launched it from Overwolf. But I don't see the ARK dock in Overwolf. The total play time is still "Nada". What is wrong here? OLLI
  19. Steam Play-Time not correct

    Hello, two days ago I played "ARK: Survival envolved". I started Overwolf and Steam, then I started ARK out of "My Library" in Overwolf. Although I started the game out of Overwolf and although I saw the Overwolf dock in ARK, the playtime in Overwolf is still "nada". Very annoying. Greetings OLLI
  20. Steam Play-Time not correct

    Hello, in my Steam Library I have 70 games and a total play time of 632 hours, so it would be very useful when these hours would be shown in Overwolf. Example: for the game ARK: Survival Evolved I have in Steam a total play time of 58 hours but in Overwolf I have 0 hours. Some pages like SteamGauge (http://www.mysteamgauge.com) show your complete library including the play time. You just have to enter the username. So please offer an import for the Steam play time. I also would pay a fee for the import. Greetings OLLI
  21. Hello, I understand that Microsoft stopped the Skype API and that this is not your fault. But this kills a main feature of Overwolf: the in-game chat. Most of my friends use Skype and Facebook. In the other protocols (Google Talk, Raptr, Steam and Yahoo) I only have 20 contacts (counted all together). The problem is that some of my friends ONLY use Skype. In the past I was able to see TeamSpeak inside the game (also the small channel list is very useful) and I was able to chat with all my friends (Overwolf supported the most important protocols). Now Skype is missing and when I want to see if five of my mates (that only use Skype) are online, I have to switch back to the desktop to the Skype App. I play together with these 5 friends, but they really only use Skype (not even TeamSpeak, what I think is very strange, but they don't want to). I recognized that Overwolf is getting more useless for me, because I have to switch to the desktop all the time, to see if my friends are online. And I recognized tat I start Overwolf now very seldom. So please bring back Overwolf to old glory days and try to offer the Skype protocol. You are genius freaks, you surely find a way! Greetings OLLI
  22. Support - ARK: Survival Envolved

    Hello, please support the game ARK: Survival Evolved http://store.steampowered.com/app/346110/ The game has 23,076 Reviews, where 17,114 are positive. I do not know rhe correct number of users, but I read that the game is very popular. So please support ARK. Would be fantastic to use Overvolf in ARK. Greetnigs OLLI
  23. Installed games not listed

    Hello, in the list of supported games there is the game "DayZ". I have DayZ (the stand alone game, bought via Steam). When I click on Overwolf on: Appstore -> Games -> My Games then DayZ is not listed here. Also not when I update the list (click on +Add a game -> Scan for games). I think in this list there should be all my games that are supported by Overwolf, right? Same for the following games (I did not check all of them): The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Steam) Borderlands 2 (Steam) Dead Island (Steam) Dishonored (Steam) Guild Wars 2 Left 4 Dead 2 (Steam) ... (many more) The strange thing is that the Steam Game "Dead Island: Epidemic (Beta)" is listed in "My Games". What is wrong here? Greetings OLLI
  24. Installed games not listed

    Hello, this issue is still existing. I have my Steam games installed on drive E: and most of them are not listed in "My Library" (although they are supported). Please fix this issue because: I can see what games are supported by Overwolf I can see the time I have spent in a specific game I can start the game directly via Overwolf (if this is supported) So, please fix this issue. Greetings OLLI
  25. Overwolf Crashes

    Hello, about one week ago I received an Overwolf Update. Since that update Overwolf is crashing often (about once or twice per day). I started Overwolf right now. Then I closed the "Appstore" window. I opened the chat window, clicked on "Skype" to start the Skype client. Then I switched to Facebook and sent just a "Hello" to a friend. Overwolf crashed. I logged into Facebook via the browser and I saw that the message was send. Some days ago I just started Overwolf and did nothing but it also crashed. What data do you need to check the problem? Greetings OLLI
