What’s New in 97.209?

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 Replays for DOTA 2 – Many people have been requesting this and it’s been a long time coming, but now Replay HUD is compatible with DOTA 2 and is able to capture all your Kills/Deaths/Ults. Simply press Shift + F9 to watch your replays in-game or CTRL + Shift + F9 to watch them later.

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.

Logitech LED Keyboards – Logitech LED keyboards will now light up in sync with your replays when using Replay HUD, now you can see your ghost (Boooo) replay keystrokes in-game.

 

Improvements & bug fixes

Brand new Window Dragging implementation – We have dramatically improved the movement of windows while ingame, much more fluidity while opening Overwolf apps.

We have also made other performance improvements as well as bug fixes and minor tweaks.

Stay Classy,

Kenny

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!

The pack is growing!

 

We just joined Overwolf’s pack, and wanted to introduce ourselves!

favorite movie of all times: Donnie Darko

Things he’s willing to admit: He liked the Star Wars prequels. Deal with it.

He will live among you, learn your ways and you will not suspect a thing…OK, maybe you will…


And introducing me, Jareth.

I am the new Overwolf marketing and content manager.

FPS drops – Solved!

Hey all!

I’m happy to update you that we finally understood what causes FPS drops for some of you. We’ve been working hard at trying to recreate this on over 30 different computers with vastly different specs with no luck. However, we now discovered that there is a Microsoft bug for WPF apps with transparent windows (like Overwolf) which leads to FPS drops in games. Continue

WoT giveaway is over

Hey everyone!

Boy this giveaway was fast. You all overwhelmed us and really came out for that gold!

Unfortunately, we have to close the giveaway earlier than mentioned as the 100,000 keys we were given are already in your hands. We’re very sorry about having to close the World of Tanks 1000 gold giveaway early. In our next giveaway, we will make sure that both the number of keys available as well as other restrictions are properly reflected.

Thank you everyone who participated and downloaded Overwolf. We hope you enjoy both the gold and using Overwolf in your game.

See you in game!
Team Overwolf
