I would assume that overlay only works in windowed mode, correct?
That's fine. The EDMCOverlay plugin does self-terminate if Elite Dangerous isn't running and generating events, so you do need to be in game before anything can happen, including the overlay test.Just making sure here...the plugin is installed as EDMCOverlay, but the Elite Observatory log says EDOverlay plugin not listening?
Yes. The EDMCOverlay plugin installer should take care of it. When it's installed it should be listed in the EDMC settings plugins tab, like so:Also just to make sure...
With EDMC plugins, the specific plugin folder itself just needs to be in the EDMC plugins folder, and nothing else needs to be done for EDMC to use them?
Yeah, see mine does not say Enabled Plugins even though when I click on the Open button above, it take me to the folder where the EDMCOverlay folder is. So are you using EDMC 3.43 or 3.50?
Thanks for trying that out. I'll see about getting the plugin updated to be 3.5 compatible. (I don't know if Ian Norton or @DeadMoroz are active here to talk about taking care of that, if not I can look into it myself.)Actually, just uninstalled 3.50 and installed 3.43.
The overlay works just fine in 3.43, so issue sort of solved
I'm using Observatory for some time and it was fine. But recently I've installed new voices at my PC (Win7) and tested them with Voice Attack and Observatory and it was ok.
Now Observatory does not use the voice I set in my windows. Voice attack works fine with witch ever voice I set, but Observatory is stuck in one voice. In its settings, the test buttons plays the correct voice, but the software don't.
I don't have a solution, unfortunately. The voice API used by Observatory is very old and I'm hoping to replace it with something newer and better supported, but for now it has some peculiar behaviors that I don't really understand the causes of.
There are two ways to use the overlay program, as an EDMC plugin (the "expected" way), or standalone. It sounds like you're running it standalone, which as you've discovered works fine, but you've got to dig around to find the program to run.A couple of questions though. The only way I can get the overlay to work is to run the overlay program in the appdata plugins folder. Is this how it's supposed to work? I can't find any settings for the overlay program or any link to it. How should it be run? I realise that this is not the thread for that program but hope someone can help.
Hi, thanks. I've been trying to get the overlay to work reliably but no luck. I've re-installed EDMarketConnector and how have access to the setting page where I can see the plugin listed. However even with this running the overaly does not work. I'll have a look for the 3.43 version and see if that helps. Thanks for the support.There are two ways to use the overlay program, as an EDMC plugin (the "expected" way), or standalone.

The two solutions I can suggest are grabbing EDMC (3.43, not the 3.5 beta) and letting it manage starting up the overlay program via the plugin, or simply create a shortcut to the program in a more convenient place.
