Overwolf version 0.79.21 released!

Aloha dear friends!

I’ve chosen to greet you in Hawaiian because the air conditioning in my work area decided to take a nice long break and I’m now the prisoner of heat and despair. So in order to escape my prison, I’m imagining a nice tropical island with refreshing, ice-cold drinks… Ahhhh…

Enough with random ramblings and on with what’s new in this version:

A “Streaming” indication has been added to the Overwolf buddy list. Your friends can now easily know when you stream and you can find out which of your friends enjoy some lively streaming activity. Try clicking the name of the streamed game for a sneaky sneaky trick.

Next on the list are the notifications, that now play the stacking game and will pile one on top of the other, up to a maximum of 5. Combined with the previous quick-reply update, you can now tell everyone at the dinner table that you’ll be right there (which we all know is a barefaced lie).
Additional enhancements to the chat include a “new message” indication on the active chat tab and an update to the auto-scroll logic, which will no longer scroll to the newest message when browsing previous messages. One last thing is a fix for Steam and Raptr chats.

. . .

The following new games are now supported by Overwolf:

  • Final Fantasy XIII
  • Heroes and Generals
  • Lovely Planet

Wishing someone would fix the damn aircon…


  • Nice! Been really enjoying Overwolf. Use it a ton for several different addons and TSpeak. Especially when I play DayZ. Notepads and such come in a lot of use with remember different lock codes and such. . . The only down side to Overwolf it seems to be quite CPU intensive. Tend to have some problems with it being to much on some games myself, but few. Idk if there is much if anything you could do about that, but it being a little less( a little lot would be amazing) CPU intensive that would be GREAT! Thankie.

  • Overwolf TS overlay doesn’t seem to work anymore with CSGO after this.

    Also does the TS overlay work with Bad Company 2?

    • That’s weird… Please open a topic on the support forum about it.
      The TS overlay should work perfectly fine with BFBC2, just note that Overwolf in general will only work when running it with DX9.
      You can change it through the settings.ini file. Change ‘DXVersion=Auto’ line to ‘DXVersion=9′.

  • Will Archeage ever get supported by Overwolf? At the moment the game takes priority which means the overwolf system can’t run over it. Even in windowed mode overwolf still get’s pushed to the foreground. I would love to open this discussion up on the archeage forums as well since i use overwolf day in and day out on Guild wars two and other mmos,

    • It’d be totally awsome if we could use Overwolf with ArcheAge!! I use Overwolf for most of my game streaming on Rust & Black Ops 2, & a couple other games I play. having over wolf also allows me to have my game fullscreened while taking notes of things & places in game I need to rememeber. would be useful for remembering crafting ingredients for quests rather than always having to open the crafting menu & search for things all the time.
