This log is not an Overwolf log but one found on any Windows computer. DxDiag is a diagnostics tool used to test DirectX functionality and troubleshoot video- or sound-related hardware problems.

In the DxDiag log it is important to check the following:

  • OS and build- Make sure that the user is up to date
  • Processor- Make sure they meet the Overwolf Minimum Requirements
  • Memory and available OS memory
  • User and system DPI settings- If the DPI setting on their system is over 100% (mostly for 4K monitors) send them our guide for Scaling Overwolf Apps to Appear Properly with a High DPI Setting

When investigating recording issues check:

  • The Display device card name and driver version version- Make sure it meets the Overwolf Recording Minimum Requirements

  • Sound devices- Make sure that the sound devices are the same ones set in the Overwolf Settings
