Is it possible, if not already being worked on, to add overlay support to
Guild Wars 2? Just used the dependency walker as suggested from a previous
response, and found the GW2 supports both D3D9 and D3D10. However in the
current snapshot it only has a plugin that supports Guild Wars. There is a
workaround to get the overlay to work with GW2 but I dont like the approach
Would the workaround be disabling D3D9Ex?
Alright, GW2 does not use D3D9Ex (at least not yet, apparently it caused
problems so they switched back).
The workaround involves circumventing the launcher, so the next suspicion

Is there any work being done to address this issue so the work-around is not required? Most other overlays seem to work fine with Guild Wars 2.
