There is a new game patch and the app doesn’t work for me. Why?
Currently, in most cases, when there is a new game patch, the Overwolf team needs to re-enable their API so things will work as intended. There is a service status in the app that indicates if the app is having issues, or if everything is working normally.
When the API is down after a patch, in some cases, you will not be able to see the loading notification or access the “Live Match” features. This would be temporary, usually a day or two max, but only for big game patches.
I can’t see the app’s overlay in-game
There are a few possibilities for this:
- You installed the app while the game is still running. If that’s the case, please quit Rainbow Six Siege, restart Overwolf, and then launch the game again.
- You need to make sure that Overwolf’s overlay settings for Rainbow Six Siege is set to “Enabled”, so the overlay will work in-game.
It’s something else…
We’ll be happy to hear you out. Please let us know with a new post if you have any questions or issues.
