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

New supported games:

  • Arctic Combat

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

Overwolf version 0.33.199 released!

Dear audience,

I hope you all enjoyed this crazy gaming month, while using Overwolf of course!

Today we have a great update for you with an amazing new feature that will change the way you play LoL!

The League of Legends Respawn Timers Widget
Stop guessing when one of those bloody creeps are respawning and use our in-game “League of Legends Timers” widget that will help you with those respawn times. Each creep has its own timer. Clicking on it will reset the timer to count down again, so pay attention when a teammate says he killed one! Currently, the widget is only available for “The Summoners Rift”, 5 vs 5 map. BUT if you throw enough stones at our support mail, we’ll add it for the other maps!

So how does it works?

1. When you enter LoL, you’ll get a notification like this on Overwolf main menu, aka “The dock”:
League Of Legends in-game creeps re-spawn timers widget

2. A new widget will be added to the widget bank:
League Of Legends in-game creeps re-spawn timers widget

3. Click on it and follow the instructions provided…
League Of Legends in-game creeps re-spawn timers widget


And some other cool updates:

  1. We’ve added a maximize button at the top of each widget, so you can now maximize its window by double clicking the title bar or by using this weird rectangle button.
  2. Italiano è supportato! Overwolf now speaks Italian!
  3. The music player, which apparently doesn’t work on Windows XP with WMP < 10, now supports these music formats: AAC, AIFF and WAV.
  4. Lots of bugs were fixed, specifically the ones concerning the connection to various IM’s, so please try it out again.

I am glad to announce that we now support these games: Tera, Guild Wars 2 and Dota 2, under certain limitations, please read the game comment carefully. The complete list of the new supported games:

  • Dota 2
  • Fallen Earth
  • Guild wars 2
  • Jagged Alliance: Back in Action
  • Kerbal Space program
  • Knight Online
  • Path of Exile
  • Point Blank
  • Pokemon World Online
  • Rise of the Dragonian Era AKA R.O.D.E
  • Sol: Exodus
  • Tera
