  1. Hotkeys not functioning

    Not only do the hotkeys not work to hide the red dot and timer overlay, the options in settings to hide those is not working. I need to cut them from my video for a nice presentation of ingame play. So far no games I have (and I have many) will work to hide these items. Help???
  2. Hello, i am having problem with overwolf overlay. When activated (ctrl+tab) i can no longer click on anything in game. No matter the game (LoL, SC2, WoW) I can either have overlay activated and use overwolf apps, or have it deactivated and click in game. for example when i start game of LoL, LoLwiz automaticly opens, and shows me what i should buy on my champion. I will buy that, but when i want to close window of LoLwiz, i have to press ctrl+tab (my cursor change), close the window, and again pres ctrl+tab to be able to move my champion. or in sc2. I start a game, hit ctrl+q to activate spawning tool, but i cant click on anything in it, until i pres ctrl+tab, so i choose what game i am playing, but until i press ctrl+tab again i cant control my army at all. I am using windows 10 and playing both games in fullscreen mode.
  3. Hello! For a while my steam overlay has not been working in my games, specifically CS:GO (yes it is enabled). I wouldn't care except to buy stuff in game it has to be working. I am wondering if it is doing this because I have Overwolf. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks, Jweinz
  4. TS3 Notification Lineage II

    Hi everyone. TS3 Notification doesn't work on LineageII Game. I've tried Notification on Dota 2 and works properly but Lineage II doesn't work. Also Overwolf cannot detect Lineage II game. The server that currently plays like most custom servers of Lineage II runs the game from : "C:\Program Files (x86)\NCsoft\Lineage II\system\l2.exe" Overwolf can not correctly detect the game. If I try to choose the location to l2.exe instead of LineageII.exe Overwolf indicates wrong location. Just let me choose C:\Program Files (x86)\NCsoft\Lineage II\LineageII.exe And I think for that reason the notifications do not work on Lineage II game. Please, feel free to ask me for all information you need. I really want to solve this issue. Overwolf is a nice Partner of team games and I'm sure solving this issue I could help another users in the same condition! Note : Remember : If I choose the path manually C:\Program Files (x86)\NCsoft\Lineage II\LineageII.exe the game is added to my Library but TS3 Notification doesn't work and information of game like "Last played" or related information of game doesn't. http://imgur.com/a/Brq3Z
  5. I recently got a new monitor with the resolution of 1920x1080, at 33". I felt this was too big to play league of legends at fullscreen so I changed the resolution to 1280x720 windowed so i wouldnt have to go so far across the screen. Now when Lolwiz opens the top part is cut off so I can only see the bottom teams stats and such. Is there a way to fit Lol wiz to screen so I can see it all?
  6. I've been using Overwolf's overlay for a while now when I play Arma2: DayZ MOD. It's always worked for me without any trouble. I recently purchased a new computer (I went from Windows 7 to Windows 10 btw), and after reinstalling everything now I cannot get the overlay to show up in game. It opens just fine on the desktop and the channel window is there, but in game it will not show up and none of the hotkeys to bring up the dock/widget or anything else work. It DOES show up however when I'm just playing Arma 2 OA, or Arma 3. But I really need it to work again in Arma 2: DayZ MOD. Please help.
  7. I've added the -dx9 command line for hearthstone. Tried in fullscreen/not. Fiddled with a lot of things, in running admin mode, etc, etc. FPS won't display, overlay no-no, trying to get the heartharena app working but at the moment nothing seems to. Strangely, worked perfectly fine on dota, didn't even realize I had overwolf on and it just popped up. I'm new to overwolf, so you might need to take me back to the basics. Tried searching for the fix, went to FAQs, at wit's end at the moment. Thanks for the help, sorry if I'm wasting your time D: Log attached Log.rar
  8. I came here to share my experience with this bug i found. Whenever I have Overwolf running with Steam running and i enable Steam FPS counter this bug appears. The skyline gets a black texture and the view distance is shallow. This also happens if the Steam FPS counter is off but i shift+tab into steam overlay. If Overwolf is not running this problem goes away completely. This only seems to effect Source Engine games. The bug exists with Counter Strike also. Just posting this so the developers can see it. Thanks
  9. Fallout 4 no mouse and keyboard

    Well, I am trying to play Fallout 4 while Overwolf is running, but it looks like the overlay is disabling the keyboard and mouse, so I cannot do anything in the main menu. Is it possible to use Fallout 4 with the Overwolf overlay disabled? Can I disable the Overwolf overlay? And no, I don't want to close Overwolf because in that way it doesn't track playtimes.
  10. I would like to suggest the following enhancements/fixes: If the user clicks an area where there is no Overwolf overlay/ui present, focus back on the game. When the overlay is toggled on using CTRL+TAB, it is very confusing (for me as a first-time user at least) how to get back to my game. Once you interact with the overlay, moving your mouse away from it or clicking outside causes it to shrink/minimize (as it should), but the cursor remains as the Overwolf cursor and clicking anywhere on the screen doesn't exit the "overlay mode". Using CTRL+TAB a second time fixes the issue, but causes another one (#2 below) depending on your settings. While this seems like user error initially (understand the app perhaps?) I would argue that because of the bug in #2 below, it was confusing and I assumed something was broken. Fix the issue where the overlay will disappear, even when the in-game dock settings tell it to remain. Most likely caused when using CTRL+TAB to toggle the overlay, but it should return to its natural (settings) state. An example can be seen here: overlay-toggle-issue If this is the expected result, perhaps for first-time users, show a message that it will not be minimized to the dock position when using the key bindings to toggle it off. Enable the Overwolf "dock in-game behavior" to be enabled by default. Knowing that the Overwolf app is running after launching a game (especially for first-time users) is the expected experience and very hassle free (next point). First-time users shouldn't need to open the settings page to know how to turn it on. The functionality Overwolf (and apps from the store) provides is most likely the reason they installed it. The minus icon/button on the overlay provides a quick way for them to get rid of it, should they want. As they utilize more apps, they could use the settings to remove extra screen clutter. Increase the Appstore opening speed if possible. When clicking the Appstore icon via the overlay, I'm experiencing an average of 8-12s for the overlay window to open, and then another 3-5s for the progress bar in the window to complete. Maybe some ui element to indicate the Appstore is loading would help (even if a basic rotating icon with "Loading" next to the Appstore icon in the overlay). I'm trying to reproduce an issue where the window stops responding and does not allow me to get out of the overlay/Appstore (seems to work itself out after about 10s thought), will update you if I can get the steps. I am interested in developing some apps for Overwolf and my concern is that these quirks/issues could throw off first-time users, thus reducing our efforts to promote the product to new users (or customers as some might see it). Again, this is a great product and I am looking forward to developing apps!
  11. It was working perfeclty some time ago, if it didn't work, I cold just quit teamspeak, re-open and re-connect, then it was showing ingame overlay. But since that, I changed GPU, and maybe a few other things, and war thunder client also got updated a lot. Now it doesn't work anymore. Does Overwolf support war thunder's latest version? Do I need to set some specific setting in teamspeak?
  12. Planetside 2 not working

    Hello, i cant get overwolf to work with planetside 2 please help. I have attached the log file below. Csgo works fine. Log.zip
  13. When I launch Overwolf and the Gamevox overlay it tells me that Gamevox needs to be launched and shows an orange button to launch Gamevox. However this never changes whether Gamevox is running or not. If it is already running, I press the button and all that happens is the permission alert to run as Admin in windows. After that nothing is changed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both applications, rebooted multiple times, reset settings for both. Any suggestions?
  14. Hi, I just installed overwolf and downloaded the wowhead search app. I can't get it to work, I cant see overwolf ingame at all. Sometimes when I press the hotkey for browser or Wowhead search I can see that it starts up behind world of warcraft and sometimes it doesnt even do that. So can you please help me... I have checked the forum for a solution that works but I haven't found anything yet.. I have tried to change between fullscreen and windows mode, change Directx 9 and 11, restarted both wow and overwolf and tried to restart computer. Nothing works! Log.rar
  15. Overwolf not showing in game tibia

    So I've been streaming on twitch through Overwolf and it's been working well, however, I can't see the overlay while I'm playing my game. That is I can't see how many viewers are online nor the chat window. If I minimize the game it is all there on the desktop and I can interact with it, but it won't show over game window as I need it to. The game is Tibia, on the supported game list. Best, Diego
  16. Development

    Hi, I never really talk much here on the forums, but I need some advice from anyone, I am trying to create a overlay for my games, I don't really want much. Plus I have little experience in coding, I have searched around for different things. All I have gotten is complicated and unwanted forum posts, so if anyone can tell me, how do I make a simple overlay with Micro Visual C#. You could put the code for the thing or give me a video that tells me how to do it, anything will work.
  17. Attempting to Add Game to Overwolf

    I am attempting to run the Overwolf overlay on a modded launcher for Minecraft, but I can't get it to run with it. I would have expected this problem to show up sooner with the FTB launcher, but surprisingly it ran perfectly with it. Basically, how do I force Overwolf to run with the game? It's Minecraft, so it's supported, it just doesn't recognize it as Minecraft. In all honesty, I could just switch back to the FTB launcher and transfer over some of the mods and resources, but the MyM launcher that I've been using has several items that are very useful.
  18. Overwolf with OBS

    Hi there! I'm here to report a couple bugs I've encountered and ask a few questions regarding compatibility. The only other overlay I use is Curse Voice, but I've reproduced these bugs with Curse turned off as well. OS: Windows 8 64bit Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 RAM: 12gigs Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745 If anymore info is needed please ask. The fist bug I've found is that if you don't launch League of Legends with Overwolf, then Replay HUD doesn't work and causes League of Legends to crash when it switches you to in game. It gives you a black screen, and the first time it crashed my graphics card drivers. Those are updated btw. Now if that's not a bug and apps aren't supposed to work without using OW to launch the game then disregard that. The second bug is that even if I'm not using any OW apps, whenever OW is running-- whether I launched League of Legends with OW or not-- the in game League client is not recognized by OBS Studio. I can set it up as a source but it will not display. Even if I disable the overlay and without any apps running. I understand the programs aren't compatible at this point, but they shouldn't effect each other like that. Lastly, I just wanted to know if there's any plans to make a plug-in to add compatibility to OBS Studio? I'd love to help make that if I wasn't an idiot with program design and coding, I don't mean to be demanding. OBS Studio is so much nicer than regular OBS, but OW adds nice components to my stream that I really don't want to give up. I included my log files in case they're needed. Thank you for reading.

  20. csgo overlay not working

    Hi, I started using overwolf recently but am not able to get the overlay to work using twitchr. I put the link in and click the tick but nothing happens, is there something else i should be doing or is it an issue with the app ?
  21. It's very very annoying and tiring to click the Minimize to hide the windows inside a game in full-screen, i like how you Ctrl + Tab to open overlay, then open browser or something else, then Ctrl+ Tab back to game and hide those stuff away. I dont know if this is only me but everytime i open a window inside a game, it doesnt hide itself when i ctrl + tab back to game, it goes transparent a little and can click through, but still 80% opacity and blocking all the views.... thank you for looking ^.^ i only used overwolf for 2 days but i like it better than Raptr... also disabled steam overlay hehe :3
  22. Hi I just recently downloaded Overwolf and iv'e noticed it does not work with the supported title Chivalry Medieval warfare. The Overlay does not show up in Chivalry and trying the hotkey ctrl + tab does not work Pls help. Logs.rar
  23. Elite: Dangerous horizons issue

    Hello, I recently installed Overwolf for elite dangerous horizons which recently came out. May i mention that i know for a fact some people in the community i play with are having NO issues what so ever. I boil it down to either my machine or its just me being an idiot. I digress here is my issue: - I have installed the client, had to manually add elite into Overwolf game section as it didn't find it. - Continued to add some apps such as Spotify, ED board. - Go to games launch the game. - Game launches the Elite dangerous LAUNCHER window... - Choose x64 bit horizons - Game launches ok, the overlay tab (little semi circle stays for about 2 seconds before disapearing on the appearance of the logo_ - after that there is no way ive found to show the tab (ive tried CTRL+TAB and SHIFT F2 with those Hotkeys respectively ticked in the settings menu) - Ive tried reinstalling Overwolf as well. - tabbed out of game to see if OW is running, it is.. it just sits on my desktop instead. I would love if someone would point out what im doing wrong here and i do hope its not hardware specific. Im on windows 7 -GPU NVIDIA GTX 780SC i dont think you'd need to see anything other than the GPU But if you need more info please dont hesitate to ask.
  24. Rainbow Six Siege - Overlay of the channel!

    Hi, I would like to request an overlay for this game, in many occasion I don't know who is talking in my channel. The communication is very important in this game and lose many precious seconds to find out who is talking to me in the channel if alt-tab to Windows because I don't have two monitors. I think this support would be most welcome in the community! Thanks for your work!
