Weird overwolf window displayed when alt+tabbing

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

Issue Description:
On desktop, when in the desktop window (with no other overwolf window opened), and if I alt+tab, I can see Porofessor in there and also an overwolf window. Seems like a minor issue, but multiple users complained this week. I think this appeared in 0.168, I never noticed this behavior before

Also, when ingame and alt+tabbing, one of the window (the live stats window) to appear in the alt+tab, even if it’s set to not appear in the taskbar

This seems to maybe linked to some fps drops for some users

“The input lag for me only appears when for some reason accidentally alt tab to it, since it then gets prioritised over the game window by the renderer.
However a single in-game click should fix it
And actively clicking on it doesn’t cause it either”

(in fact, when lol considers itself as being in the background, it lowers fps, might be the fps “drop” issue here)

Can you reproduce it (exact steps to reproduce):
As explained above

Do you currently have a workaround?

Mid, as multiple users complained about this, and as it might lead to fps drops

Thanks !

Thanks - we’ll fix the desktop window and review the in-game windows as well.

Overwolf client version 169 will include a fix for this issue.

@trebonius0 can you please update to the latest version (currently 0.170 on the dev channel) and confirm that it’s working for you.


Seems fixed to me :slight_smile:
