    Was working yesterday but RL updated today and now it doesn't work. Does Discord need to update everytime RL does?

    as much as i liked the overlay back in the PTB (and i still do) it seems that not ALL games are compatible with it, Games with custom cursors are a good example such as PAYDAY 2, ESO, or Skyrim even. (Not so sure on that one) now the reason i say its not compatible with it is because, well simply put it just doesn't work. you cannot control it in games that do this. is there any way i can fix this or something?

    The PTB was working in World of Warcraft, but the latest version does not. I've checked everything and it just doesn't seem to be working. :(

    @LadyMarDiscord doesn't currently support overlays on OSX. Hopefully soon. :)

    This puts a damper on my parade. I'm in the middle of building a plugin to integrate Discord directly into Unity Developed games.

    Any chance we could get an option to move the overlay in game, because it covers some hud elements and I can't use it in the current place it sits. Thanks

    I like the idea of the overlay, but can you implement it more like the Steam Overlay? The icons on the side really do cover up buttons and information that I need to play some games. So an invisible (yet still present) overlay would be best.

    @siondrome, you have to be on the desktop version of the app for the tab to appear.

    @Michael, Eventually, but not soon, since it's more technically difficult to do on OSX.

    I will play the World of Tanks and I'm activated the game overlay in settings. But when i will play the game, i don't see anything in game. When i push the toggle overlay lock button I'm only see the Windows crosshair but I'm not see any grapchic or Discord app.

    Overlay does not show up in Tom Clancy's The Division. Is this an ongoing thing or just me?

    The overlay seems to be a little buggy so far, it worked in Warframe and then didn't work when I loaded up CS:GO, and now it's broken in Warframe as well. There should be an option to have it like reset itself so that it works properly, and I'd suggest also adding a function to choose where on the screen it appears (if there isn't one already.)
