Edit overlay and auto-launch settings from the app

  • Feature Description:

It is now possible to edit hotkeys directly from the app without opening the Overwolf client. It should also be possible to change two other settings from the app:

  1. Enable/disable Overwolf overlay for a specific game.
  2. Enable/disable auto-launch setting for the current app (do not allow changing it for other apps for security reason).

It would provide a better and faster way to configure the app if those settings have been disabled for some reason. As a result, it will require less actions for a user to do.

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.

Thanks.

@surgeon We think that sets the overlay settings shouldn’t be done from the app.
But we added the auto-launch request to our backlog :slight_smile:

Currently, there is no ETA.

Thanks

There is a new API to update some app settings now:

Is it planned to utilize this API to change “auto-launch along with the game” directly in the app?

Also, I think it needs a listener to update those options in the app if they were changed in Overwolf settings.

Hi,

Currently, you can’t set these options (auto-launch/exit with OW client) through the client UI (OW settings page) - so a listener is currently unnecessary.

Is it planned to utilize this API to change “auto-launch along with the game” directly in the app?

Yes, it’s in our backlog, and we will announce in our changelog when it will be released.

Thanks
