Welcome to Overwolf, your one and only appstore for the best and biggest PC games apps!

Let's get you started! What do you want to know?

What is an Overlay, and How do I Make it Work?

An overlay is essentially a "layer", that can be used to display windows and other elements on top of a game, and can be turned on and off according to your wants and needs, without affecting the game itself. You can read more about it right here.

In order to have Overwolf's overlay ready for use with the game that you're playing, please open up Overwolf's settings window, and make sure that:

  1. The game appears on the list
  2. The game's overlay option is enabled

Is everything set correctly but you're still having trouble getting the overlay to work? Please check out our Overlay Troubleshooting guide.

Capture Settings

To start capturing videos of your gameplay, please download one of the capturing apps available in our appstore. Once an app with a game or screen capture feature is installed, you will be able to access Overwolf's Capture settings.

The default capture settings are 720p and 30 FPS. If you would like to change the resolution, FPS or other capture settings, you can do so by opening Overwolf's settings window and clicking on the "Capture" tab:
