Game Overlay helps get back some of the multi-tasking functionality lost when playing full-screen games. It allows you view and interact with windows outside the game, but without Alt-Tabbing and requiring the game to reinitialize its graphics. It does this by actually rendering the window inside the game. For example, it could be used in the following ways. Chat with your friends through an Instant Messenger program while playing a game. Overlay the GUI for a voice-over-ip application; perfect for multiplayer games.
Sick of writing down or printing cheat codes. Paste them in to Windows Notepad then overlay it. Keep an eye on your computer stats while you're gaming. Version 1.0.7 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
