Maintenance release #5020

Hello everyone!

This new update will give you new features in Sysinfo charts overlay and several fixes.

Changes list
  • Sysinfo overlay additions: added alerts, fill charts option (instead of drawing only lines), lines anti-aliasing option
  • Fixed compatibility with some latest Vulkan-powered games: Strange Brigade, Quake 2 VK
  • Forza Horizon 4 is now in black list and you can run it with the program without crash, we hope :)
  • Fixed bug rendering overlay properties window
  • Added ability to get AMD GPU sensors values from drivers instead of low level access
  • Fixed bug not auto-scaling overlays if the program is started in minimized mode

If you like to use some "non-standard" codecs like MagicYUV or Lagarith, then we have a good news for you.
We've found a 3rd party plugin developed for PlayClaw 6 https://github.com/ignus2/playclaw6-plugin-encoder-vfw which can use built-in Video for Windows codecs.

New features in new year

Hello everybody!
We hope you're fine and ready to get new PlayClaw features!
This build #5000 has several changes and tunes in overlays and stability and two major additions:

New Teamspeak 3 overlays
We have splitted old overlay into two new ones: voice chat and text chat to make them better and more functional. Unfortunately Teamspeak 3 team is busy (sorry, we don't know what they do, but our new plugins are already 2 months in review). So you will need to install them manually. It is not a problem, I hope we solved the TS3 puzzle here https://playclaw.com/support/scenes-overlays/overlays/teamspeak3/

Desktop Widgets
Very simple and nice - you can see your overlays over the desktop :)
