Replay HUD – Troubleshooting

We have gathered around solutions for some of the more common issues that people might experience with Replay HUD. Please look through this list and try following the advice given here:

 1. Replay HUD is not working (toggled off).

When installed, Replay HUD will automatically inject into your Overwolf supported games by default. If you can't see Replay HUD's "arm" message, please make sure that the app is Enabled and toggled on in your settings window (located in your Overwolf dock).

2. Why can't I see my keyboard and mouse clicks like in the Replay HUD commercial video?

By default, your overlay keyboard and mouse should be toggled on and you will be able to see it in your Replay HUD video. If for any reason you can not see that overlay, make sure that it's also toggled on, just like the Replay HUD itself.
If you can't see the Mouse & Keyboard overlay please contact Overwolf support (support@overwolf.com)

  • Note – Open GL games do not support Mouse & Keyboard overlay

3. I'm pressing Shift+F9/CTRL+Shift+F9 and the hotkeys are not responding at all, and I get no Replay HUD message at all.

Please go to the "Hotkeys" tab in your Overwolf settings and verify that you did not re-assign or unchecked your Replay HUD hotkeys. Make sure Overwolf and Replay HUD are injected into the game (You will need to see the 'Overwolf in-game' message and 'Replay HUD ready to use' message in the middle top of the screen. If both of these scenarios occur, the Hotkeys should respond correctly while in use.

4. Games and Auto-Events/Highlights.

Replay HUD automatically captures meaningful events in certain games

  1. League of Legends
  2. Counter-Strike
  3. Dota 2
  4. Rocket League 
  5. World of Tanks
  6. Overwatch

These clips capture your kills/deaths and the uses of your ultimate abilities, and it does so automatically unless configured otherwise.In those games: Kills, deaths and multi-kills, the buffer will be set automatically according to the events, and cannot be changed manually.The purpose of the buffer is for manually capturing Replay HUD videos that are not of an automatic nature (by pressing the dedicated Hotkey)

5.a. I can't find the videos that I recorded with Replay HUD. Where are they?

6. I recorded some videos last week, and they disappeared from my folder and now all I have are the latest clips that I saved. Where did my videos go?

Overwolf has an Auto-Manage space option which by default is set for 5GB of memory. This means Overwolf will delete automatically the oldest files once it exceeds the set storage limit.
If you wish all your clips to be saved, or even change the amount of disk space between 1-9GB, you can always disable this option from the settings or re-configure it for your own comfort.

7. Does my computer meet the minimum requirements In order to properly use Replay HUD?

When installing Replay HUD, it will automatically record in the background of your supported games, in-case you want to save a certain highlight. This means that the Game Capture will start at the beginning of each session of your game.
I this case, make sure your computer meets the minimum requirements to capture videos with Overwolf.
