Windows docking in editor and external plugins

New #4870 build is ready with two main changes: editor now has a docking feature (check highlight video) and software supports external plugins (encoders, overlays and extensions) via our open plugins API.

First plugin is the x264 encoder, currently it can be installed manually. You can find simple instructions here https://github.com/CyberDemonLord/playclaw6-sdk/releases/tag/build-4870

In-game overlays effects

New release #4850 is ready and it has one new feature - overlay effects are now applied to in-game overlays too. So you can use, for example, color key to remove unwanted background color from some web page (chat?), if you're not familiar with CSS.

Other changes:
  • Fixed possible crash of applications in Windows 7 on PlayClaw shutdown
  • Fixed compatibility with Prime World
  • Fixed possible wrong overlays rendering order
  • Fixed crash on startup if your CPU has more than 20 threads
