Log in with Twitch credentials

You can go ahead and start using the new CurseForge app without logging in - the app should detect your installed games and mods automatically.

If you wish to access the syncing features, you will need to log into your CurseForge account with your Twitch credentials, by clicking on the 'Log in' button in the side-bar menu:

 





When clicking 'Connect with Twitch' you will be taken to a webpage in your browser where you will be asked to provide your credentials, as well as 'Authorize' Twitch to share your basic information (username and avatar) with Overwolf/CurseForge.



That's it - now you're logged in! :)


Creating an Overwolf account

Creating an Overwolf account is not mandatory, but it is recommended since, as part of the migration from Twitch to Overwolf, logging in with Twitch credential will be available only temporarily (until the migration process is complete). From there on, logging into the app and into CurseForge will be possible with Overwolf credentials only.
You can find additional info here.


Creating an Overwolf account is simple and quick - check out this guide to learn more!


How to detect my games and mods

Your installed games and mods should be automatically detected by the app, but if you notice anything missing - no worries! You can first try to initiate a scan, or browse your system to add a game manually.

  • Follow the next steps to add your game manually:

    3. Choose 'Manually add a game':

       
    4. Navigate to the game's installation directory:

    5. Select the game's main folder
    6. Your game should be now successfully added to the app!

Useful settings

To open CurseForge's settings, click on the cogwheel button located at the bottom of the menu:


The settings menu is divided into two sections: General CurseForge settings and game specific settings:


Here are some useful settings and options you should know about:


  • When I Close the App

    You can choose how CurseForge will behave when clicking the 'X' button to close it:


    There are three options:

    • Hide CurseForge (minimize to tray) - Closes all visible windows, Keeps tray icon active

    • Exit CurseForge - Exits all CurseForge related windows

    • Exit CurseForge and Overwolf - When closing the CurseForge app, also close Overwolf. This may result in other apps you have not auto-launching when playing the relevant games.

  • Start with Windows


    When turned on, Overwolf will also launch on startup, as CurseForge requires Overwolf to run. If you wish, you can also set the startup setting for Overwolf separately (click 'here' to open Overwolf's General settings).


Addons multi-selection

The CurseForge app allows you to select multiple addons and perform actions for all of them at once, like updating or deleting them from the 'My Addons' section, or installing brand new ones. To select multiple addons you can:

  • Press and hold down the Ctrl key in your keyboard and add each addon to your selection with the left-click button of your mouse.
  • Click on an addon with your mouse, press and hold down the Shift key and click with your mouse on another addon to create a range selection.

*A multi-selection checkbox feature is planned for future versions of the app!


Once you have multi-selected the addons you can click one of the options on top of the addons list to apply it to all of them. In the following example, we have selected multiple addons and installed them all at once:



How to get logs

If you need to export your logs for any purpose, you can do so through Overwolf by following a few easy steps:


  1. Right-click your Overwolf tray icon and hit 'Support'
  2. Click on 'Create logs zip'
  3. The location window will pop automatically, with the zip highlighted - send it to us :)


If you're having trouble with these steps, you can also retrieve your logs manually.
