How to change and add a Game list

The Overwolf game list is the car keys for the Overwolf overlay client, replacing the gamelist.xml file can solve a lot of issues related to game injections and other game related problems.

*Note that our support team will determine whether you need a change of a gamelist file and in that case they will give you the new file. It's not a file to be interfered with by yourself.

To replace the game list file (which you receive from us when necessary) just follow these 5 simple steps:

  1. Press the windows key + R
  2. Type in: %localappdata%/Overwolf and hit enter
  3. Locate the GamesList.xml file and replace it with the one you got from us
    Usually you'll need to extract it first so make sure you have winzip/winrar/7zip/other compressing tool installed on your PC.
  4. Restart Overwolf
  5. Start Overwolf and start the game
