    You have to employ the 2% rule when working with the overlay. Works fine.

    as cool is it is i dont really think the overlay should be on all the time since it get so gigantic in low res since i play alot of csgo, the best option to make access discord while ingame but not have this silly avatars on the side of the screen

    I did honestly expect StarCraft II to be on the whitelisted games. Although I can understand that the game itself already features a lot of different buttons and would require you to overhaul the hotkeys for that game alone.

    My only issue with this is that it defaults to the upper lefthand corner. I'd much prefer an option to where we could have it upper left or right. Other than that, it's working fine for me, very nice and simple, nothing too big or blocky as a distraction.

    warframe isnt working with overlay even though its whitelisted AND i did check the overlay box for the game next to it

    Mac support in the works?? <3

    I agree, the overlay really needs a text chat function otherwise it is basically useless.

    I'm not a hardcore user of Discord yet as my friends haven't been persuaded by me to switch over from Skype. They are too content. (They want webcam/share screen capability)

    Anyway. I think the Overlay is a sweet niche of a feature. Probably won'tbe used too much with friends as you recognise voices anyway. However. Personally I dislike that I can't customize the little symbol in the top left corner as of now. I'd like to have a option to toggle that symbol on or off. It's a bit distracting in game. And I'd like to be able to customize the size of said symbol if I want it there.

    And yeah like others say. When you press the designated hotkey (combination) to bring up the little UI it would be close to essential to have a little chat window to the right of the current voice channel ui it brings up now. It would remove the need to alt tab for users with merely one display.

    I'm very excited about the development of Discord! I can't wait until the day I can persuade my friends to switch over from Skype. But before that Discord needs to become a little more personal. Skype is getting worse and worse by time but it's advantage is how easy it is to add friends and just call them.
    That's why my friends would like to see Webcam and Screenshare for example :)

    I did everything to that should allow overlay to show, the only thing is it doesn't, what should I do?

  • Avatar

    wait so where it says ***highest number*** we insert the highest number right?

  • Avatar

    Super stoaked for the overlay! But it doesn't work in the game I'm playing a lot lately ( Blade & Soul ) or something, so I will have to wait til me and my friends are in another game to really try it out. :Q_

    The Position of Overlay in DOTA 2 need to lower for a bit as the button to main menu is on point to the overlay

    Please also add "APB: Reloaded" to your whitelist!

    The only point of the overlay would be to view messages that are typed into chat ... and it doesn't do that.

    wokrs great in smite:) ur awesome discord:D

    Might I suggest adding the ability to relocate the overlay and or making the main icon partially opaque. In certain games it gets in the way of hud elements (like the radar in csgo for instance).

    cannot get this to work with final fantasy xiv

    when the overlay was still in ptb i had this problem and now i have it again. i enabled the overlay and it enabled and worked fine, my security didn't even show anything about discord in the even log. but when i try to launch csgo, it crashes immediately. the game window doesn't even open. then i disabled overlay and tried to launch csgo again. it still doesn't work. this is a serious problem that i need fixed.

    I can't get the overlay to work at all. it doesn't crash it just doesn't show up. even though i did everything
