Hey folks! I recently got to chat with Uri Marchand from Overwolf about just what the team's been up to since we launched the MMORPG client what seems ages ago (it was actually just two weeks hence!). We discussed at great length some features we'd like to see edited as a company, and I think in the somewhat near future the MMORPG client will have the ability to upload images and video directly to MMORPG.com and Gamertube, so that's pretty sweet!
But on top of that Uri asked me to share with you some of the main things going into the next beta build, and this is just the major bullet points:
Full size compressed recording, for full-screen viewing.
Uncompressed recording - maximum quality, crazy size files. They listened, and this is going in ASAP.
Option to remove "using Overwolf". Not everyone cares that you're using Overwolf so the team is making it an option to leave this on the many different widget feeds.
Adding more games to the supported list, and this is an ongoing process all over.
Improving the FB interface to make it more usable all around.
On top of that, and down the line a bit Overwolf will be getting its own in-game music player. They're adding in the option to take compressed smaller JPG images. And even a "Burst" feature that will take 10-20 screens in rapid succession like a nice DLR camera.
On one last note, the team asked me to assure you all that none of the info gathered by Overwolf will be used for selling to companies. All of the info about what games you play and how long is completely 100% anonymous and encrypted. Uri said that even if they wanted to sell the info, they couldn't do anything with personal information as it's all encrypted. It's purely used to track metrics in the form of game use and time played, etc.
In the future we're probably going to be running some screen and video contests with Overwolf, and the team over there has generously opted to supply the prizes in the form of Steam Gift Cards, so be on the look out!
As always, you can offer suggestions to the OW team at their site, here, and even sign up to test the beta versions every two weeks by e-mailing betaman at overwolf dot com. Hope you're enjoying this joint venture, and we can't wait to use the HD video feature ourselves to really flesh out our reviews and previews.
