Dear community,

it is a rare day when our beloved AoE2 has the pleasure of updates that exceed our expectations.
Well we feel the recent developments in relation to spectating games deserve as much credit as we can bestow on them.

Thanks to the insight and creativity of HappyLeaves with his Spectator Dashboard, also following swiftly behind we had +_P and the Spectator Overlay. Assisted by +[UB]Elusive we were also able to integrate these into the game.

We are very lucky to use these creations on a daily basis. On behalf of the community we would like to thank you guys.

Wouldn't be better if the overlay came within the same mod all together? Given that the overlay is just a layout modification of the dashboard, I dunno.

I mean less clicks and hassle for people. Just my suggestion.
