Is Overwolf going to get me banned?

It is a top priority for us to be compliant with any game’s terms of service (“ToS”) and to not be intrusive. With that in mind, we are working closely with game publishers to ensure that every app we publish is aligned with their ToS and their 3rd party policies.

Our apps are overlays giving you more information about the game to help you create your own strategy. They do nothing more than a second monitor would do for you. It’s like having Notepad or Fraps open while you play — Overwolf doesn’t interact with any game, and is not bannable.

Overwolf is trusted by pros like Cloud9, Team Liquid and Logitech Gaming. We have 1.5 millions active users monthly who trust our platform.

Make sure that you are using an Overwolf app by downloading it directly from our appstore available at http://store.overwolf.com/apps/

TL;DR: Using Overwolf will not get you banned.

New from Overwolf labs – RealSense by Intel!

Hey there Overwolf Streamers!

It’s time to say NO to the green screen…

Just wanted to let you know that we’ve added support for Intel’s RealSense technology.

From now on, when you stream using the TwitchTv application, you can use your RealSense webcam and our app will allow you to remove your background. Magic!

You can find this option in the Settings menu, under Devices (make sure it recognizes your Intel webcam).

And now you’re thinking “What if I want my own custom background, huh?”.

You got it! You can add your own custom image as a background in the apps’ settings.

Hit us up if you want to share a cool background you streamed with!

Overwolf Version 0.91.145.0 is out!

Greetings, Overwolvers!

We released our latest version which introduces some really cool features and updates to our video recorder.

  • When recording video, you can now minimize the video recorder so it won’t interfere with your gaming experience.
    If you choose to minimize, you can select which indicator will be shown or choose none, as well as its’ location on the screen.
  • By default, the application or its’ indicators will no longer show up on your recorded video.

You can play and familiarize yourself with the new features under the settings menu – Capture tab.

 

We also fixed some bugs and improved performance and stability issues.

Go play!
