i’m thinking about using Overwolf for my (at the moment) private App.
I just want to receive simple Data like Health/Bullets maybe weapon armor etc for games like CS:GO,Apex,Six Siege…
First I wanted to read them out in the memory by myself but then I heard from Overwolf.
But there are a few questions that I have in mind and I just want to point them straight out.
First of all AFAIK the Overwolf-API is integrated into the games by the Game-Developers.
If thats correct why did I have to install Overwolf? Or did Overwolf read the Data straight out of the Memory?
So could I Query the Overwolf API without using the Overwolf program/application/installer provided by Overwolf? ( because it would be more user friendly if the user just have to Download my Control-Center/program without having to install Overwolf separately)
2.1) Or how does Overwolf gets the Data of the Game?
Is it possible to write a program which uses the Overwolf API without showing up on the store?
( because my program would feature more functionalities then just the game-event handling)
3.1) if not how works the pricing (if i want to provide the App for free because it comes with hardware?(which only works with the hardware btw))
Is it possible to “query” the Overwolf API via Python without reverse engineering the NodeJS SDK provided by Overwolf on Github? (is the documentation good enough for that)
Whats the point of Whitelisting Developers? Did I have to share my Idea (because at the moment its just the Idea) with the Dev’s of Overwolf in this early state of the Project. And if yes can I be sure that this Idea don’t get stolen/reproduced is there any kind of NDA or possibilities for that?
Does it work without Internet aswell (offline)?
(sorry for my possible misspelling I’m from Germany)
Thanks for your time,
