Discord overlay use tutorial
Posted on Monday April 24, 2017

For anyone who was not aware, the overlay for Discord is a lot more flexible and less intrusive than the one for Mumble, but you have to enable it overall and for each game that you play.  Here are directions on how to use it.

 

#1  Click the user settings sprocket next to your name in the lower left corner of the Discord window.

 

#2  Go to the Overlay option on the left side menu.

 

#3  Check the enable Overlay box, the Small radio button for Avatar, and the Only While Speaking radio button for Display Names and Display Users or whatever your preference is.

 

#4  Go to the Games option on the left side menu and check Display currently running game as a status message.

 

#5  Start a game, Alt-Tab out of the game, check the box that shows up in the same place for the game.  The overlay will now show up in that game.  Repeat for other games.

Little avatars and names will now show up in the upper right corner of your screen when playing a game to help you see who is speaking on Discord.

 

Enjoy!
