#1141 Overlay for Planetside 2 (game moving to 64bit)


I know 64bit overlays have been asked before, and i know this is a lot of work, but PLanetside 2 will be moving to 64bit (and 64bit only) (https://twitter.com/j_smedley/status/430858902792445952).

I would guess many people are using Mumble with Planetside and i would certainly welcome it if overlay still worked when the game moves to 64bit builds.

The lack of overlay would be a no-go, because when you have 48+ people playing, trying to coordinate it's important to know who is saying what.

    We are using Mumble in our Outfit (+300) and a working overlay is more than necessary! Upvote.

    Mumble is a very useful soft for everybody in our team, and our 200 players would be really deceived if they couldn't see who's speaking. please upvote, and do your best to have this overlay implemented asap ! :D

    I have another gaming community of 300+ that needs the overlay for planetside 2!! We have already been trying to cope without the overlay for months. Would be great if something could be done for working overlay in this game. Many Thanks.

    Another +1

    Also consider using a service like Overwolf to do the overlay integration for different rendering backends. It requires a html/css/js view.

    Current snapshots already have a 64bit compatible overlay that works with planetside 2. It will be included in the next release.

    Using the current 1.3.0 snapshot on win7 64x. Working like a charm! thx :)

    (I had to reboot after installation before it worked it seems, though I had 2 other recursion stat tracker overlay and playclaw overlay running at the same time, might be caused by that :) )

    EDIT: tried it again with both other overlays at the same time, still working! :D
