    WeMod Overlay

      Article Summary

      What is the WeMod Overlay?

      The WeMod overlay is the easiest way to enable mods without leaving the game or remembering hotkeys. Simply open the overlay (Win+G) and activate the mods by clicking on them with your mouse. The overlay can also be pinned so you can always see what mods are enabled.

      How do I use the WeMod Overlay?


      The overlay only has three prerequisites: an active Pro membership, Windows Webview 2, and the ability to install the Xbox Game Bar. The Xbox Game Bar requires Windows 10 or newer; this is a limitation set forth by Microsoft and is not something that WeMod has any control over. If you are unsure if you are currently a Pro member, you can check your subscription status here: https://www.wemod.com/account/billing 

      If Webview 2 is not installed you will be prompted to install it or you can manually download the offline installer here: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=2124703

      Installing the Xbox Game Bar

      If you have not already installed the Xbox Game Bar, you will need to do so before you can use the overlay. You can download the Xbox Game Bar from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/xbox-game-bar/9nzkpstsnw4p

      Installing the WeMod Overlay

      The WeMod Overlay is an Xbox Game Bar widget and can be obtained from the Microsoft Store. You can download and install the WeMod Overlay widget by clicking Get on this page: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/wemod-overlay/9p2c17tk96bb

      If you have previously installed the WeMod Overlay, you will not need to do so again unless you removed it. 

      Using the WeMod Overlay

      Once you have the WeMod overlay installed, you are all set. To get started, follow the steps below.

      1. Open the Xbox Game Bar by pressing Win (windows key between ctrl and alt) and G simultaneously.
      2. If this is your first time using the WeMod Overlay, you will need to open it in the Game Bar. This can be done by clicking "Widget Menu" at the top and then selecting WeMod.
      3. Once the WeMod Overlay is open, head over to WeMod and start a game
      4. Once the play button has changed from Play to Playing the Overlay is ready to use. You can now quickly activate mods in-game by opening the Game Bar and clicking the mods you want to enable 

      Using the WeMod AI Game Guide

      🎉 New with WeMod 8.12 🎉
      Need help finding something in-game? Have a question about the story? AI Game Guide is here to answer all of your game-related questions! 

      The AI Game Guide can be used for a game you are currently playing with or without WeMod. To get help with your game follow these steps.

      1. Open WeMod and navigate to a game with the AI Game Guide available. You will see the AI Game Guide in the lower right corner.
      2. If you plan to use WeMod go ahead and launch your game as normal by clicking play.
      3. Open the WeMod Overlay by pressing Windows Key + G
      4. Click the Game Guide icon on the lower right of the Overlay
      5. Say hello to the game guide and ask it a question 😊  
      6. If you need to activate mods using the Overlay, click the x in the upper right corner of the Game Guide and resume using the Overlay as usual. 
      The AI Game Guide will be visible in pinned mode but you will be unable to interact with it due to limitations of the game bar. Open the game bar(WIN + G) to ask a new question. 
      Your WeMod game bar widget must be version 2.0 or newer. The overlay should update automatically, but if you are unsure you can manually check by opening the game bar and clicking "Widget Menu", then select INSTALLED. If the overlay has not updated you can force it to update by uninstalling it through the game bar, then reinstalling it. 

      Can I change the hotkey to access the WeMod Overlay?
