DOTA 2 Game Summary support - We did it! We finally made it! And now DOTA 2 in-game events can be viewed in the game summary, so now you can finally save and rewind all your glorious kills as well as your shameful deaths! So go and try it out and let us know what you think.

DOTA 2 GIF Replay Support - In the event you haven’t downloaded Replay HUD you can now view your replays in the Game Summary in GIF form.

LoL Assist Events – When your match has finished the Game Summary will display all of your assists which is perfect for some after-game reflection.. Or just see how such a good team player you are!

Bug Fixes

Dock Drag 4K Fix - When the dock goes below screen boundaries as it was being dragged from a 4k screen to a 1080p screen it would suffer issues, this issue has now been fixed. We have also resolved some inaccurate dock positioning while dragging.

Work in progress

We have been hearing to a lot of player requests and are currently working towards the following:

Rocket League in-game events – capturing goals and saves will be re-playable and be integrated into the Game Summary.

LoL Garena – We are now working on fully supporting LoL Garena, the LoL client for South East Asia

 

What’s new in 97.305

Hey guys! We have made some updates and bug fixes, you peeps should probably check it out.

Game Compatibility

Rocket League Game Events – Overwolf now recognizes in-game events such as Goals, Assists and many more, here’s a full list. These events can be used for developing new apps, and for use in Replay HUD and the Game Summary, stay tuned for more to come!

Client

Web Browser update – you can now click on links that open a popup window.

Tray menu not working on startup - A few of our users reported that when they tried to boot their PC they were unable to open Overwolf from the tray icon, this issue has been fixed.

Replay Hud

Excluded LoL champions – Replay HUD should not capture ults of certain champions in League of Legends (Champions who can frequently use the Ult R Key such as Teemo). We have fixed a bug that caused unnecessary captures

Game Summary

Temporary Performance fix-  Due to a performance issue some users have been experiencing, we decided to reduce the size of the Game Summary window. In order to improve stability we have also disabled the maximize button. This is only a temporary fix and we are currently working on improving the Game Summary’s performance.

Overlay

Overlay fail fallback – If the overlay has any errors it will now automatically fall back on other techniques to ensure that the overlay will run without fail.

Stay Classy.

Hey Guys!

So what’s new in 97.209?

Brand new Web Browser of AWESOME!

It’s happened! We FINALLY integrated Bookmarks into our Browser.
After many requests we’re proud to present our brand new web browser supporting bookmarks and many performance and UI improvements. The bookmarks support is still in its initial phase, as we wanted to get it out to you as soon as possible. In the coming weeks you can expect more bookmark related such as folder support, customization and more. So stay tuned folks!

 

Replay HUD

Recording ULTs in LoL – Replay HUD is now able to capture all of your ultimate uses while in-game. Re-watching your ult uses is a great way to learn when they were most effective and how you can improve your ult usage.
