Settings

On the bottom left side you find the icon for the settings:

D4.jpg

click on it and setup Discord.

Account: setup displayed name and picture

Nitro: unimportant

Connections: unimportant

Friends: leave it at Everyone

Text & Images: leave it the way it is

Voice: setup your Push to Talk

D5.jpg

Notifications: personal preference, but I would turn

TEXT-TO-SPEECH on Never or you will hear

each text messages spoken by a computer

D6.jpg

Settings II Keybinds: you can add other buttons

e.g. 2nd Push-To-Talk or Deafen

I would add “Toggle Deafen” to have the

possibility to mute the chat (e.g. capping).

D7.jpg

Appearance: just look and feel

Games: Here you can set Overlay for BGE

- start BGE

- click Add it! (green)

- chose WWIIOL

- click on Overlay

D8.jpg

Overlay: Here you can set the button to see

additional functions in-game

(Important if you want to move the overlay)

Locale / Streamer / Security: unimportant

Moving the Overlay:

- Start Discord and WWIIOL

- Press the chosen “Toggle Overlay Lock” (see Overlay)

- Alt Tab to get out of WWIIOL lock

- move Overlay with mouse (you’ll notice a delay), so move it and wait a bit. Be patient!

- Once you have the desired position, press “Toggle Overlay Lock” key’s again.
