HOW THE OVERLAY WORKS
Hey Looters, It's MEH, Community Manager for G-Loot here. I hope you're well today.
This video is to run you through what the G-Loot overlay is and what you can do with it during your play sessions in your favorite games.
So you've loaded up the client and are probably thinking about joining a challenge or competing in a leaderboard.
I'm just going to take this free one in Hearthstone here for the sake of the video.
Next, you'll want to load up the game.
Once the game is loaded, you will see by default, in the top left corner of the screen the G-loot Overlay.
This allows you to check the client is connected to the game properly.
You'll know this if the overlay is showing a green dot like it is here.
If it's stuck on yellow or showing a red dot, then it means something is wrong.
Try to restart the client as this usually helps, but if it persists, get in touch with customer support.
If everything is working ok, you can click on the symbol, and it will open up the overlay to reveal more functionality.
You will see four tabs to choose from:
My Challenges, Stats, Leaderboard, and Settings.
In the My Challenges Tab, you'll see all the challenges you are able to join for each category: Versus, Sprint, or Solo Challenge for the game you're currently playing.
Once I have played my match and completed the challenge I can come here directly to join a new challenge, instead of going back to the main client. It will then be counted in the next game that I play.
Next is the Stats Tab
This tab is pretty straight forward. You can see the stats from the last game you played and you will also see the history of your most recent challenges and their results.
Next, is the Leaderboard Tab, which is also pretty straight forward.
It shows you the current daily and weekly leaderboard for the game that you're playing.
You can keep track of your progress shown at the bottom here, as well as keep an eye on who is in the top four positions.
Lastly, there's the settings page. This allows you to customize a few things.
You can disable in-game notifications. These are messages that pop up in-game when you get a kill or score a goal with some kind words of encouragement.
This is also a good indicator that the client is working properly. If these don't pop up while you are playing (and they are not turned off) then something might be up.
Understandable, these aren't everyone's cup of tea, so turn them off if you wish.
You can also hide the overlay. So that you don't see it on the game screen. Especially if you find it distracting or it's covering some important information.
However, you can still access it by using a hotkey, in my case ATL+G.
You can edit this in the options below. This will open up the Overwolf settings. Simply go to the game you are playing and you can change the settings to the hotkey that you prefer.
Lastly, we have the overlay position. You change where it shows up on the screen instead of hiding it.
You can move it to the top left or top right, or the bottom left or bottom right.
Then you just hit save, and it will move it.
And that's the G-loot Overlay.
I hope you found this helpful, and if you have any suggestions on how we can improve or add to the overlay, let us know in the comments below.
As always, if you have any questions or are running into technical issues, please make sure to reach out to customer support.
Thanks for tuning in and keep on gaming. We will see you again soon!
