openFilePicker(filter, callback) doesnt return overwolf-fs url

Related app/team name (not a must if you want to keep it private): Trucky
Issue Description:

overwolf.utils.openFilePicker(filter, callback) doesnt return overwolf-fs in url property but the original path (ref to docs overwolf.utils API · Overwolf)

example: {“success”:true,“status”:“success”,“url”:“F:\Progetti\Trucky\trucky-overlay-react\IconMouseOver.png”}

Using the real path, cause the image fail to load.

Can you reproduce it (exact steps to reproduce):

Call the function
Wait for the callback
log the result

Impact for my app: [e.g. x% of the users complained about it, it’s a show-stopper]: High, custom logos doesnt work
Do you currently have a workaround?
Adding overwolf-fs to the real path


We added the bug to our backlog. Currently, there is no ETA, but I will update you here once the fix is released.
