What sort of overhead we talkin bout? 50mb? 500mb? 1gb+?

Which image format are game screenshots saved as? Png? Tiff? Jpeg? Saved at 1:1 resolution (i like to play at 3200x1800)?
It's camping out at 15mb RAM usage for me, 0 CPU when not in use. 50mb-ish when I poke at it.

Images are JPG, full-scale resolution saves of images to my testing at 1920x1080. It probably continues to scale past that, but I'm not 100% sure.

No, you don't need to start the game up via Overwolf. Just play it like normal and if the app supports the game it'll automatically show up.

This is seriously one of the most amazing updates for a PC gamer like me
Though I want to ask something. Do you need to execute the game through Overwolf only?

Oh, so they do work.
It was giving me a red exclamation point and it wasn't appearing in the crs so I didn't know.


Edit: oooooh it goes to the gallery, not submitted as a screenshot. xD
Yes this goes to your gallery, but because it is attached to the game they show up in the official screenshots of the game too. Like my Tombraider screenshots here:

I haven't tried it yet. But couldn't this be made to work with games not officially supported? For example, Ducktales isn't listed on the site's supported games list, but barring some requirement in the code for it to launch, couldn't it be made to manually support a particular game on the user side?
From my conversations with Overwolf the general gist is that many games can work out of the box regardless of whether or not they are officially supported. The official support means that their internal QA team has tested the games extensively to work.

When tekmosis was testing a few indie and smaller titles he found many of them won't even load with Overwolf. If you find this happening, contact their support team to see if they can work on supporting the game. I think sometimes its just a matter of tweaking their app to play nice with the games.

Whenever I take a screenshot and hit "Share to Neo" it doesn't work. D:
Are you sure its not working? I see a few of your Minecraft screenshots.

I wonder if we'll ever see something like this for home consoles and handheld games? Because this looks cool on PC, which led me to wonder about handheld and console games.
