The Overwolf Simple IO plugin
A very useful plugin that we've developed ourselves is the Simple IO Plugin. This plugin allows your app to perform different filesystem I/O operations not available otherwise.
You can read more about the functions of the simple-io-plugin in the Simple I/O GitHub repository.
We implement a lot of functionality from the simple io-plugin into the overwolf.io API and the overwolf.extensions.io API. Please check it before implementing the plugin in your app.
Common uses for the plugin
This plugin enables you to:
- Read a game’s log file or files and even “stream” the log file, line-by-line, to your app.
- Create your own persistent log file on the local hard drive.
- You can get the plugin from our GitHub repository.
- The latest DLL can be found here, don’t forget to Unblock it after downloading.
When you download foreign DLL files using a browser, Windows automatically marks it as unsafe. You can mark the file as safe by checking the 'Unblock' box found in the file's properties.
