Allow recording of in-game to continue after alt+tab for all games

  • Feature Description:
    When users hit alt+tab while recording, continue recording of the game. I know some games such as Hearthstone, continue to record the game and don’t show the “Alt+Tabbed Video capture paused”, but it’s not the case for other top esports game titles such as Overwatch, Valorant etc.
  • impact for my app: [low, mid, high, show-stopper].
    High as this blocks our future development.
  • What is your current pain point?
    We want to build a feature in our app that users can interact with while they are in game but they would have to focus into the window. We do not want to build this feature as an overlay as there are some problems when trying to type text on the overlay which we discussed with the Overwolf team previously.

Hi, and thanks for the feedback.

We will discuss the matter internally, and we will update you here.
It might take up to a few days.


We added this feature request to our backlog.
We don’t have an ETA, though, and that can take some time to implement and release. Thank you for your patience.
We will update you here once it is ready.
