New Overwolf version – the TouchFox edition!
A blessed day to ya’ll!
It’s been ages since I last wrote…
I won’t keep you long this time, and just tell you that our virtual touch controllers (branded TouchFox) have come out of beta, and are now available for purchase on the Green Man Gaming store, alongside your favorite games. This would be the perfect time to thank everyone who participated in the beta, and provided feedback. Your comments were invaluable, and we’ll be further enhancing the experience as we go. We keep on adding more and more TouchFox controllers into the mix, so get in on the action, and let us know what you think.
Also, check out the cute video that shows what TouchFox is all about
Carrying on with some exciting news for our overclocking friends – we’ve added support for MSI Afterburner and EVGA Precision X. You can now Overwolf, while you Overclock.

Ladies and gentlemen,
It’s time to unleash your inner Scorspeilberg with the Overwolf video recorder update.
Some of you might be excited beyond what’s humanly possible, as it’s been the most requested feature for some time now, but I’ll ask you to hold off on fainting, as we don’t have the appropriate medical insurance.
The updated video recorder features: Continue
Break into your dad’s liqueur cabinet, get a couple of kegs, as much junk food as you can get your hands on, about 5 cases of energy drinks, and get ready for a streaming party.
Twitch finally made its way into Overwolf!
Some of you may have found Twitch hiding (perhaps not so well) in our previous version. This time around it’s definitely not hiding, and it also received great features, for your streaming pleasure: Continue

With our recent version being released, we introduced a bug that many of you have encountered, the dreaded “Failed to start application, please contact support” bug.
I’m happy to let you all know that we solved the issue and you can now download a fixed version. Continue
If you were having some issues over the last day with the signature app, Overwolf chat or app installations we apologize. We had some trouble on our end with our servers and fixed them.
The only thing that still isn’t up and running 100% is the MySignature app, so please bear with us while we fix it too! We’ll keep you guys updated when it gets fixed.
Waddup playas and playettes?
In this version, we have some #swag updates to Overwolf.
The sickly, weird looking tray icon, and his partner in crime, the boring, gray tray menu have been awarded the fugly awards, with the prize being a pimpin’ fresh makeover.
We took them out to the gym for some shaping-up, slapped a fresh coat of paint and buffed them out to a stylish mirror finish, so haters can see their hatin’ reflection in it #Steeze. Continue
We’ve got all those emails, and messages so we just wanted to get a quick update out, we are having some technical difficulties with our Overwolf chat servers that are coming online and going down every so often due to the sheer amount of users that we’re getting logging in (our servers apparently don’t lift).
While our raid team is geared up and fighting their way to fix that server, you guys can keep gaming since nothing else is affected.
Update – We’ve fixed the issues with the servers and it should be smooth sailing from here on out!
