Hello, my name is Rick James, and I am here to talk to you today about a new, not so new, program called, Overwolf! (Check bottom of thread for a link)


NOTE: I am not advertising anything I just think it's super handy and nifty, and I wanted to share it with you guys, this thread took me long to make.




Let me start out by saying what this little program can do!


-Record videos on the spot

-Screenshots on the spot

-Upload the videos and screenshots via twitter, youtube, facebook on the spot! How useful is that for recording gmod demo's?!




-Even your own internet browser overlay! How awesome is that?!

-Tons of apps, included for games such as, league, dota, and many more! (see below for more info!)

-Play your music, directly from this nifty widget!




So I will go in to some detail about the things you have read above me. Videos recording is set up in the easiest, and simplest way imaginable. Defaulted by "Ctrl + `" it will start recording. JUST LIKE THAT. And then you can stop it with the same hotkey and it will come up with an overlay such as this:




Now there are a few things you can do from here. As you can see right off the bat, you can share. Now when you do this, you will get something like this




How cool is that?! And it uploads it for you! Nothing else required!


Also, things you can do, down at the bottom right hand corner, there are 2 things you see. A slide bar, and a resize. Resize is self explanitory, resize the window to your like(This applies for anything you use, browser, music, apps anything!) And the second is the slide bar. This adjusts the transparency. Pretty damn nifty! As with resize, you can adjust the transparency on anything with this app!(within the app, not like outside of the app such as steam and things. ._.)


Let's move on!


Next feature, Screenshots. Well this is somewhat explanitory, Default key, "Shift + `". So looking at this screen shot here, 7UMEm.jpg, top right hand corner a camera, and a recorder. Simply clicking this toggles the feature on the fly! Bascically comes up with the same thing, click to take a picture. But using hotkeys are always easier! 


Moving on


Apps- Browser


Wow, this browser window is simply, AWESOME! For some of you who are unfortunate enough to have one monitor, this program is PERFECT for you. You can manage skype, twitter, facebook, twitch, youtube, ANTHING just in game over lay. And may I add, the browser is insanely fast! And with the transparency feature, say you are playing wow, farming. Boring shit right, can't really alt tab to watch youtube. Well now you can! Simply download the app(or go to youtube in browser) And BAM!




Couple things going on in this picture. For one, youtube! WITH ZERO LAG! And transparency! AND RESIZING! It's insanely neat.




Moving on.


Apps for games. I will go ahead  and post a picture of this SOME of the games this program/widget can provide for:





There are others, but I figured, I have enough pictures and should concerve the ones I have left in case I need to show you anything!


So a few things going on here, as you can see, dota timers, tf2 craftin, guild wars apps,(more than one by the way). All these are so neat and can be used in game over lay with a resize option and transparency, and moveable anywhere you'd like!


So I will go ahead and post every app that this lovely life changing widget provides!

I will now link you some videos so you can see first hand what this bad body can do!

I don't know Sythen, it wasn't bad for nonsteam games. However, I got it to be able to steam chat in nonsteam games, but it didn't work that well for that because you have to log out of steam to be able to steam chat in Overwolf.

I use Overwolf only for the Teamspeak compatability. But the Buff camp timer for LoL is also nice to have.

Overwolf also tends to decrease your in-game performance by quite a bit. And since I am not really one for chatting during gameplay except for Garry's Mod, in which there is a lot of waiting in between rounds, and for that I have Steam Overlay.

I needed a program for recording video games, but Open Broadcaster Software does it better. Thanks anyway!
