- Keep in mind that we are not streamers and we've put together these instructions to the best of our knowledge. It is possible that better or easier ways exist. If you know of either (or want to add instructions for other software not covered above), don't hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- It's possible the Hearthstone game window contains a solid magenta color, caused by the overlay. Clicking within the game window once should remove it.
