Overwolf version 0.42.248 released!

大家好!我们非常高兴介绍一个新的事儿!

We are so freakin’ excited about our new release that we started speaking Chinese for the occasion!!!!

Without further ado, we would like to introduce, TATATADAAAA…
The Overwolf Game Launcher!

Can I get an AMEN? Can I get an AAAAAAMEN?
The work was long, hard and kept us up on nights and weekends (that’s what she said,lol), but we managed to pull through.

And now, you can be the proud user of one of the most awesome things to hit Overwolf.

 

The Game Launcher features:

  • Playtime tracking – so you can brag or cry in the corner about how much you play, either way, you can keep a record to show your grandchildren.
  • Notifications for what your friends are playing! Remember that Bob said he was kicking ass in CoD? More like trying on dresses in Barbie’s Beach House (we’re not sure it’s an actual game, but you can ask Bob, he would know).
  • Tired of playing the same games all the time? Why not look into our game suggestion section (that even rhymes, heh), with brand-spanking-new games for you to play.

Also, in case you didn’t hear about our AWESOME App Developing Contest, the submission deadline is nearly here, so hurry up and submit an app for a chance at great prizes!   More info here.

 

And finally, don’t forget to register to Overwolf, so you could track your games and chat with your Overwolf friends. Better make it quick, before someone grabs your nick.

 

If that wasn’t enough, even more games are supported in this version:

  • A.V.A
  • Aliens: Colonial Marines
  • Antichamber
  • Bob Came in Pieces
  • Capsized
  • Crashed Lander
  • Dollar Dash
  • Dungeon Party
  • EverPlanet
  • Fallen Enchantress
  • Impire
  • Lost Saga
  • McDroid
  • Ninja Blade
  • Omerta

  • Skyrim Dragonborn
  • Star Conflict
  • Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm

Some other improvements:
1. Share screen capture to Twitter.

Overwolf version 0.37.218 released!

Greetings!

 

In this release we’ve focused on upgrading some of our existing features. The first one is our chat window. We’ve added web link support and incoming message typing indication (can you find the hidden Easter Egg there?!) Our next upgrade is in the browser, a browsing history drop down menu was added, to enhance your in-game surfing habits.

 

And now for the breaking news – Overwolf now supports Minecraft! Yay! The reason it took us a while, is because Minecraft works on a different graphic engine that is called OpenGL. We basically had to support this new graphic engine to be able to support Minecraft…

 

So now, you can take screenshots, record videos and use all our features inside Minecraft! We’ve also published a very nice MC friends-list app in collaboration with Enjin! Can’t wait to see your cool MC videos in our forums!

 

Oh, some users requested a Google+ web app, so we’ve added this as well. That’s a big Plus! (hmmm…), last but not least we’ve reassembled the Steam chat parts and it’s now functional again. And as always we fixed some bugs.

 

In our next update, as promised, you’re going to see one of the most amazing features we’ve launched so far, the in-game music controller! Here’s a small tease of how it’s going to look like:

In-game music controller

Overwolf version 0.34.203 released!

Greetings beloved gamers!

I don’t think it’s even possible to describe the excitement in Overwolf’s premises about this version. A huge in-house project is going to be launched and hopefully change the world of gaming as we know it. The barriers for developing in-game applications have been breached!

Overwolf’s team has worked extremely hard to introduce the In-game Appstore!

Yeah guys, you can all now develop and publish in-game apps for the masses! It’s fast, easy and extremely fun. You don’t have to be a superb c++ ninja (although this might be an advantage…), just a few HTMLs, some JavaScript and a nice CSS touch and voila! You’ve got yourself your own in-game app!

For more information on how it’s done, visit our developers website and feel free to ask us questions in the developers forum.

In-game Appstore

As part of this, we’ve added the “My Apps” area where you can finally not only customize Overwolf dock but also remove useless apps!

In-game Appstore



So, what else is new?

  1. As part of the in-game Appstore, we’ve already added 5 new apps which are available to install: Calculator, Notepad, IRC Webapp chat, 8Tracks and Grooveshark. I think their name describes them the best!
  2. A cool Overwolf watermark is now added to your glorious screenshots. You can change its location or disable it in the settings.
  3. You can now share screenshots and videos to the VKontakte social network and the Enjin gaming network.
  4. Enjin chat network is now supported in the Multi-IM app.
  5. “Check for updates” support, you don’t have to guess anymore when a new update is available, just check it out in the general settings page.
  6. And sadly, some bad news, the Steam chat had to be removed for now as they’ve suddenly changed their protocol. We’re working hard to get it back ASAP.
  7. Due to the mass increase in the number of new users, we are receiving tons of support calls and forum posts which help us monitor and fix bugs. So a big kudos for all of you! If you’ve encountered some glitches with Overwolf in the past, please check it out again.

New supported games:

  • Cities XL 2012
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta
  • Crusader Kings II
  • Max Payne 3
  • Railworks 3
  • Risen 2
  • Smite Beta

Note that you have to restart Overwolf to get it working, and make sure you are running the latest version 0.34.203…
