Release Notes


1.1 is the second 'stable' release of the GW2 Personal Assistant Overlay. This version includes just a couple of very minor features and some minor bug fixes. For details regarding installation, setup, and general use, see Documentation.

Note: If you were using a previous version, you will probably want to copy over the following user settings files:

New Features

  • Added new "NoBrowser" version of the application.
  • Any previously-opened windows will now be re-opened when starting the application.

Resolved Issues

  • Renamed "Jormag" event to "Claw of Jormag"
  • Fixed issue that could cause a crash when closing the application with a web browser window open.
  • Fixed issue that broke the Reset Unlocks -> Current Zone option in the Zone Completion menu.
  • Removed restriction for opening the Zone Assistant window. Now, if the Zone Assistant cannot determine the current map, a blank window will be displayed.
  • Added fix to condense the alt-tab entries into a single entry.

Known Issues

  • In the WvW Tracker, disabling Show->Castles also hides camps from the list of objectives.
  • In the WvW Tracker, if a certain color of objectives is disabled in the menu, those objectives do not reappear when their owner changes.
  • A few people have reported massive performance issues when running the tool. So far this appears to be a select few, and the majority of people can use the tool without hits to their FPS.
  • Norton SONOR does not like the application, and will either block or remove it entirely.

Other Notes

  • Reduced refresh rate of WvW match details to once every 2 seconds

Reviews for this release

This is, in my humble opinion, the best overlay application for Guild Wars 2 hands down. It has everything I could want and is extremely easy to set up. Not only that, but it is vetted by an ArenaNet employee ( so you never have to worry about illegitimate banning. I am satisfied with the current iteration of the project and excited to see where it goes as it develops further.

This program is awesome for the simple fact that it runs smoothly, installation is as easy as extracting - which is a bonus, and setup is a breeze. The only thing I have to say against it is that it will alt-tab you out of the game, so if you're not careful, you could accidently die in-game. I've found that putting the overlay on a second monitor works as a fix to that problem. even with that fault, its still a great program that works ton's better than anything else I've tried.
