  • In search of support staff to help out with bug reports and user requests

    Hi all,

    We have now grown quite a bit to a point where I need some help. Currently, it is only me developing and giving support.

    • Answer questions
    • Help user with their problems
    • Create issues if user encounter bugs
    • Redirect them to our tutorials/documentations
    • Give Steam keys to new user (if we get some more from Valve)

    Nice to have

    ScreenPlay is free and open source so this is purely voluntary work 🙂

    If you are interested send me a pm if you are already active via discord!

    Sadly Valve has not responded to my request of another 1000 keys yet 😅 (wow I did'nt expect this much request haha). Stay tuned!

    I will reopen this locked chat as soon as we get some more keys :slight_smile:

  • RE: "Allow game launch?" dialogue interrupting launches.


    Yeah Steam did some changes because this silent option is in ScreenPlay for over a year now^^ The use of this silent option is for ScreenPlay to start without an ui.

    I changed the settings in the Steam developer board to no longer display this message. Can you verify my changes?

    New nightly with the following changes:

    • Refactor fullscreen window check to use the same check on one or more monitors

    • Add support override of display text for properties

  • V0.10.0 Nightly testing!

    This is the nightly feedback thread for the next ScreenPlay Version. You can enable the nightly builds in Steam:


    • Add Filesystemwatcher for wallpaper
      • This means we can now live edit wallpaper without reloading!
    • Add working videoFillMode as enum. The Sidebar now also uses this value as default!

    Crash breakpad analytics

    • Add qt-breakpad to the README for git submodules
    • Add browser and buttons for click testing
    • Add breakpad support for ScreenPlayWallpaper
      • This generates a minidump file when ScreenPlay or ScreenPlayWallpaper crashes. With this file we can better analyze the cause of the crash!
    • Add google breakpad for crash analytics

    Pause wallpaper rendering when wallpaper is behind a window

    • Add release event to mouse hook
    • Add working pause visual part of the video with settings
    • Add activeScreensList to base Window
    • Add check for multiple monitors for pausing wallpaper if an app is maximized on the same screen
    • Add basic detection of fullscreen window. Only tested with one monitor and simply pause the wallpaper for now!


    • Add Korean and Vietnamese languages to the feature list
    • Add Vietnamese language by Deleted User f6a9k4y2o0u
    • Add Korean language support with custom noto fontThis needed a larger refactoring because we only want to set the noto korean font when the korean font is selected. For this we use
      ScreenPlay.settings.font The font must be located inside the <workingDir>/assets/fonts/fontname.otf because it is to large for our resource .qrc file


    • Fix accidental click of installed wallpaper by adding a MouseArea
    • Fix default value of language setting
    • Fix wallpaper not using mouse inputs when enabled
    • Fix get method if wallpaper creation in sidebar
    • Fix wallpaper window flags for now.
      This introduces a 1pixel border but it is still the only way to reliably display the wallpaper without interfering of the window manager. This means no longer minimizing when pressing "minimize all windows". Because of this the wallpaper is 2 pixel larger in height and widget and offset by one in x and y.


    • Increase all combobox sizes to implicit 200 for now. So we do not cut text like qt 5.14 currently does
    • Implement loadFromFile function for qml usage
    • Reset log after 10000 character length
    • Refactor settings to use enums instead of stringsRefactor settings to use QSettings instead of settings.json
    • Remove Qt version checksAdd comments to the ScreenPlayWindow tests
    • Remove old settings json
