Always on top header interfaces
« on: November 18, 2017, 01:41:28 PM »
I have been googling this morning trying to figure out how to create a PC HUD. I want to have a heads up display like Fraps. This program has a yellow indicator showing FPS, but I would like to have the same functionality showing other information.

Do you know what this is called?

It's some form of injection into directx or opengl windows.  I'm not sure what it specifically is termed, but it's a very broad thing that affects all programs typically (even multiple sub-windows in unity editor, for instance, since those apparently each have their own OS-level window handle).
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games?  Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!
