I’m just starting my journey with Overwolf and apps. Have some experience when it comes to simple websites and I’d love to learn how to build more and more advanced things using Overwolf as a platform.
So far I downloaded the Fortnite sample app, played with it and it raised some questions. What I would like to achieve as my first learning experience/project:
Fortnite app with only one window, visible all the time that will work with dual or triple display setup (game on one screen and app on another). Whenever kill event is detected I want to display a graphic element in the app window for 5 seconds. I already figured out how to display the image in div when kill event is happening, but it is in-game window.
- what is the difference in the role of dist and windows directories in the ts folder? .html files there are the same; .js and .ts are different but when removed windows directory the app does not work;
- mentioned Fortnite sample app is switching windows when game is on/off - I would like to keep the app super simple and start with only one window that is visible always, no matter the game status. Is it the code in background window files? Figured out that if in-game window has in manifest.json desktop_only I can drag the window to another screen
- is it possible to enter full-screen mode with the mentioned window? I’d like to run the game in borderless mode on one screen and then have the app window running in full-screen/borderless on another.
