Overlay doesn't work anymore on WoT


Recommended Posts

Hi !

I used to use the Overlay function while playing World of Tanks, and it worked fine for a while. But since version 0.8 of the game, when they switched from DirectX 9 to 11, I can't get Overlay anymore.

I used Mumble 1.2.3, I'm now on the latest 1.2.4 (beta1-33-ge9ce44a), it doesn't work with either of them.

Can I fix this in some way ?

WoT switched to Direct3D 11 then.

See http://mumble.sourceforge.net/Overlay#Incompatible_games

and the 2 linked refs

If you can code, have the time and motivation, yes you can fix it by implementing D3D 11 overlay / port our shader to a custom shader, not dependant on Effects 11.

We would like to - time is the problem. And in this specific case, also the knowledge on shader coding / the D3D hassle - which multiplies the time necessary to implement the DX11 overlay.

Damn Microsoft with their ever changing D3D API.

Don’t expect something soon(ish).

To fix the overlay for WoT you need to install a tiny d3d9.dll to the root of the game.

find it there:

- inside the agregation mod for WoT 8.2 from the 13DF clan http://13eme-division.fr/Thread-Agregation-mod-pour-la-13DF-version-2-compatible-8-2--2511 (the file: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/71677791/wot13df/13df_mod_v2.exe )

- or the tiny file itself : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/71677791/wot13df/d3d9.dll
