Overwolf version released!



Hey peeps,

You ready for the next level of our Twitch streamer?

We listened, watched, asked and learned all the things you guys wanted out of our Twitch streaming app and added as many as we could in. We’re taking it to the next level, and we won’t stop here. Wanna know what’s up? Look no further.

  • Improved video encoding – We’ve included new codecs for higher stream quality and performance. Intel Quick Sync, Nvidia NVENC, and x264 codecs are now available for you to use.
  • Desktop streaming - Ever thought it was seriously annoying to not be able to stream your desktop? Now you can.
  • Mouse cursor streaming - No more invisible mice clicking stuff and leaving your viewers wondering if they should call the Ghostbusters. Stream your mouse so everyone can see your epic clicking skillz.
  • Microphone and sound device selection – Select the microphone and speakers you want to stream!

Some buffs for the new Appstore!

You might have noticed, but there wasn’t a search bar for the Appstore. Well, now it’s back and with some options! You’ll now be able to search for apps by how popular the apps are.

Popularity? What’s that? Well, now you can tell everyone what you think of the apps by reviewing and rating each app. We added this feature in so you can tell us how you really feel about the apps.

. . .

We’ve done some bug fixes too. Our video recorder now works in Robocraft! Also, the video recorder will no longer get stuck, infinitely recording your game till you close it.

There have been some major changes in how we interact with Hearthstone and Robocraft so you should notice a much better gaming experience in these games.

Your Windows key is now yours again. For a long time, you’ve asked us to not block your Windows key and we listened. It’s now free for you to use while in game.

. . .

What’s an Appstore without some awesome “can’t live without em” apps? Well, we got 2 for you! Introducing SMITE.Guru and ModXVM powered apps. You can find them in the Appstore under For Games.

Smite.guru WOT-XVM-tiles-258x198
Hit CTRL + F and open up the Smite.Guru search and see your opponents match history, Elo, rank and statistics on how they play with each god. Get all the info you need about your opponents in SMITE now! This new app will let you know when there’s been a new release of the XVM mod for World of Tanks. You’ll never need to leave your game to update your mod again.

. . .

What’s an Overwolf update without some new games? Here’s the next round of supported games:

  • Evolve
  • Arma II – DayZ Mod
  • Trove
  • Receiver
  • H1Z1

. . .

See you guys and gals in game!
