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!

We will be kicking off our spring WAN party at 5:30 PM Eastern next Saturday April 29 with Left 4 Dead 2. We will be playing survival mode on The Plantation, Burger Tank, and Sugar Mill depending on how quickly we pass the 10-minute gold mark on each map. If you have not yet played this with us, our server is modded to allow for up to 32 players at the same time but adjusts the difficulty upward with each player beyond the 4th one. The server starts with expert mode.

We will be playing survival mode this time around. We have now survived all of the maps beyond 10 minutes (gold medal level), so our objective is to extend that time. The red-highlighted map marks where we left off last time around. We will start with the Stadium Gate this time but will most likely switch around 10 PM to another map to break it up. Also, if we have more than 8 of us, I would like to test one round of versus mode again to see how the plugin is working with it now.

-Mall Atrium

The Passing
-The Riverbank
