The following instructions will be mostly for the Chromium version (IE Version here
). If nothing happens when you run the overlay, make sure you should have JRE Windows x64
installed. To be certain, you can uninstall all versions of Java in the "Programs and Features" window, restart, then install the JRE. Also, you could try right clicking the "GW2Navi_2D.exe" file and choose "Run as administrator".
"overlay" = the GW2Navi program and container for the website, "website" = the embedded browser showing the map and app. "2D" = the framed overlay with transparent background, "3D" = the projection overlay with clear background, "knob" =
tilted G icon acting as the menu for the 3D version.
Overlay won't start or javaw not found.
Make sure the directory to the GW2Navi folder does not have special characters or symbols. "C:\Program Files\GW2Navi" is a good directory, "C:\激战2☆☺\GW2Navi" is not.
If uninstalling and reinstalling Java
, and restarting your computer didn't work: Open GW2Navi/bin/GW2Navi_Start_2D.bat and GW2Navi_Start_3D.bat with a text editor and simply replace the path to "javaw.exe" with the one on your computer.
Code: Select all
start "" "C:/Program Files/Java/jre-9/bin/javaw.exe" -cp "GW2Navi_Win64.jar" -Djava.library.path=./lib/libcef/win64 GW2Navi.Main
"C:/Program Files/Java/jre-9/bin/javaw.exe" is where it is on my computer, please change it to yours, then save the .bat file and run it.
Overlay shows white space and website is improperly resized.
Uninstall Java 9 and install Java 8
Overlay says it can't load/save options.ini or files.
Give yourself permission
to the GW2Navi folder
Website is not responding.
"≡" menu > "Reload", or click on the website then press F5 to refresh.
Delete Cache Solution (note this will wipe the site's memory and should only be the last resort)...
Go to GW2Navi\bin and delete the "cache" folder.
I can't run it on Windows 10
The problem may be Windows update "KB3132372"
, try updating your Windows.
I can't see the buttons on the overlay bar.
2D: "≡" menu > "Options" submenu > Turn "Enable Native" option off. If you can't see the menu then aim for and click the button some pixels right of the top left corner until you see a popup menu.
The overlay frame menus are graphically glitchy.
Please read this post
. Open GW2Navi/bin/GW2Navi_Start_2D.bat with a text editor and Select All and replace the whole file with the commands below:
Code: Select all
start "" "C:/PATH/TO/THE/FILE/Java/jre-9/bin/javaw.exe" -cp "GW2Navi_Win64.jar" -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false -Dsun.java2d.ddoffscreen=false -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -Djava.library.path=./lib/libcef/win64 GW2Navi.Main
Save the .bat file and then run it.
The taskbar is showing up over the game.
2D: The taskbar should only show up when you have focused on (clicked) the overlay window, otherwise when you're playing normally the overlay and the game should be visible while the taskbar is hidden.
3D: The taskbar should not show up when you interact with the overlay.
I have a 4K monitor and the overlay is too small.
2D: You can resize the website by "≡" menu > "Show Navigation" and using the zoom buttons. If the overlay's menus are really small, you can have Windows resize it automatically, but this involves working around an issue with Java
3D: Right click on the knob > Window > Zoom
I can't right click on the website to show context menus.
You're probably using a touchscreen or touch enabled device, which makes the website think you're on a mobile phone. To disable this, on the website go to the Options page, Map section and checkmark "Ignore touchscreens" then reload the embedded browser.
Website doesn't respond to my mouse scroll wheel.
The overlay is actually two separate programs: the overlay frame (outer) and the embedded browser (inner). The website is in the browser, so you have to click on the website (suggested middle click) to focus on the website, then it will respond to your mouse scroll wheel.
My character isn't showing/followed.
The GPS works in the open world, and some instances like dungeons or personal story. Make sure these options are enabled:
≡ > Options > Enable GPS (Checked)
You may also try:
≡ > Options > Enabled Last Visited (Unchecked)
≡ > Homepage
So when you "Show Navigation", the address bar should have the overlay mode in the URL.
The scroll wheel is inverted and I can't use some keyboard keys.
3D: These are known issues with this mode.
Click on the game rather than the overlay.
2D: Turn on the clickthrough feature by right clicking on the "G" icon on the overlay bar. The overlay will act as if it's not there and you can click on GW2 normally. To be able to click on the overlay again: Alt+Tab or Alt+Shift+Tab to GW2Navi, or click on GW2Navi on your Windows taskbar.
3D: Click the tilted "G" button once to enable clickthrough, second click will hide the overlay, third click will reset and show the overlay again.
100% opacity always.
2D: By default, if you click on the overlay, it will be "in focus", and the opacity level for that is high opacity but still a bit of transparency. You can turn this feature off
"≡" menu > "Options" submenu > Turn "Opacity Focused" option off.
Right click overlay window bar > Choose "100%" opacity.
Cover the game entirely.
2D: Run "GW2Navi_Start_2D.bat" for a framed overlay, then double click the overlay window bar to maximize it.
3D: Run "GW2Navi_Start_3D.bat" for the Projection mode which will cover your screen with the dually transparent/opaque website.
Change the language.
To change the website's language: On the overlay window bar, click the button "4" then on the site hover over the [EN] box (English is default).
To change the overlay's language: On the overlay window bar, click the button "≡", go over "Options", then to "Language".
Make and use my own cursors.
Use custom cursors by right clicking on the overlay window bar then over "Cursors".
Create a .PNG or animated .gif cursor image and save it to GW2Navi\bin\cursors
Open options.ini and look under "[CursorSettings]" to add the cursor; you can replace an existing cursor "slot" with the name of the new cursor file, and update its width and height, and its offset from the real cursor tip. Open the premade cursor images or open GW2Navi\bin\source\visiblecursor.psd for examples.
The program is portable: all settings are saved in the text/ini files that came with it. To "uninstall", just delete the entire GW2Navi folder. If you're using the Internet Explorer version, optionally the folder:
Code: Select all
