Some people may have seen these currently playing overlays that specifically Dakkroth and Minpojke are using (I'm obviously using it aswell but who the hell cares).

Anyhow, so I've been getting some questions about it, if I can send people the files because they want to use it aswell, so I decided to create a new couple of overlays that are easier for the user to implement and that also looks pretty cool (imo).

Download link to the overlays (zippyshare)

My overlays are optimized for players who use a UI scale of 1.0 and a XSplit resolution with a ratio of 16:9 (1920x1080, 1600x900 i.e).
However, you can obviously scale the overlays to fit your UI scale. If you do, please inform me of what measurements were used so I can inform other people.
I will provide you with a fitted "middle" overlay for 16:10 users later, possibly one for 4:3 users aswell but you deserve some punishment for still not using widescreen monitors.

Here's an example of what your stream can look like and will also act as your go-to if you want to know how to set it up.

All you have to do is drag the Media files of your choice in to your XSplit scene and make sure that the element in XSplit fills up the entire scene.
Make sure layer 2 is located "above" layer 1, and whatever content you wish to have inside between them both.

If you wish to use the side overlays I'll recommend that you use MoveAnything or similar functioning scripts to remove the blizzard artwork.

Here's an example of how to implement the side overlays, this will also give you a greater idea of how to set it up, if this wasnt easy enough.

You're by all means welcome to edit all these overlays as you wish.

All you need to do if you have a UI scale of 1.0 is to fill out your entire XSplit with the files of your choice and they should be fitted perfectly.


How to fetch what song you're currently listening to with spotify:
I use a program called "Song Parser" to fetch whatever song I'm listening to in spotify, which was made by a guy who call himself Bananashell.

You can go to the programs download site by clicking here

Bananashell already made a detailed guide on how to use it which you can find here.



If you have any questions such as "lol y r u such a nerd" or if you're just having troubles implementing these, ask and I'll respond as soon as I can.

The "CURRENTLY PLAYING" text is written with Impact if that's what you're referring to :ph34r:
