    How about Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) if Discord's overlay is enabled?

    Is the discord logo going to stay in the top left corner if i use the overlay all the time? It's pretty annoying.

    There definitely needs to be text chat in the overlay as well.

    The overlay won't show up at all despite it being a game it should work on, Smite.

    I'm having the opposite problem: for me the overlay shows up in Smite even though I have it unchecked specifically for Smite.

    Hey Everyone, the way this platform is set up makes it a bit difficult to answer you all one by one, but here's a quick summary of most things I've been seeing through support.

    1) Moving the overlay, yes it's possible! Toggle the overlay on and then grab the top of the menu and move it as you please.

    2) VAC? We've had the overlay live in PTB and beta for roughly 2 months. We've had 1 report about LoL banning someone, but can't confirm if it's due to our overlay. That being said we'd receive way more reports of it if there was an actual ban due to our overlay causing issues.

    3) General issues with the overlay not hooking or appearing properly. I've had a couple of reports saying the PTB worked better in some cases.

    1) Do a full close of Discord by closing it out of the system tray and reopen it, while the game is open. After that, hit the selected Overlay toggle button.
    2) Is the game you're playing listed in User Settings > Games? Double check that the overlay is checked for your game.
    3) Is Discord running as admin?
    4) Restart your system! (Because that fixes everything!)
    5) Make sure that you're not running the PTB and normal version of Discord at the same time.

    Hey Dan, I know you are busy but I am curious on if you plan on adding text chat functionality to the overlay sometime in the future? Or at least a way to enable the desktop pop-ups to work in game. I help run a server that relies heavily on text chat, and since I don't have a second monitor it basically requires me to dedicate all my time to staring at discord instead of playing games or something. I would love if there was some way to see what was happening in discord chat while I played my games.

    Love all the work you guys have done :)

    can you please have a button where you can move the overlay, because in world of warcraft the overlay is blocking my health/mana bar which is not good because i'm a healer

    @PieceofToast, maybe in the future. That's more of an overlay v2.0 type of deal.

    @vonsutho10, look 2 post up from your msg.

    It looks like the overlay doesnt work for Hearthstone (fullscreen), its works for minecraft (no fullscreen), so is it something related to fullscreen?

    This definitely needs to work with text chat as well. And a way to hide the main icon.

    Issues with Dying Light, the overlay loads up but i cannot interact with it at all. I've tried restarting the game, relaunching discord while the game is up and nothing but my keybinds for discord will work.

    Also, a quick suggestion, a setting to make the orientation of the avatars so that they can be set to change between the default vertical and a possible horizontal setting as to make it less obtrusive in certain HUD-based situations.

    This is actually terrible.. My pings in LoL are always smartpings, I can't get the discord logo off, fps is lagging, and the cursor goes to a desktop cursor...
