Tooltip always on top problem

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I've been making a timing software for a game called Lord of the Rings online. The initial big issue was the UI did not show timer on debuffs/buffs that you applied, and the only way to see them is to hover your mouse over every single one of them (quite bothersome if you ask me). So I made this thing that will basically show a tooltip in the top left corner showing me what buffs/debuffs and how long before they run out.

Problems I have got:

It's a 3D game in fullscreen, I've used several autoit programs from other people in the past that still managed to show a tooltip even if it was such a game. So is there any settings?

Hmm, I did a quick test with :

While 1

ToolTip("TESTTESTTEST",200,200)

WEnd

I ran a game and the Tooltip is flickering. This is your problem, right ?

Exactly, it flickers if I either move my mouse over it or every time it refreshes

Sample of my Flurry time function:

$Timer = 30
    While $Timer > 0
        $FlurryAnnounce = "Flurry ends in: "&$Timer
        ToolTip($FlurryAnnounce,0,0)
        $Timer = $Timer-1
        sleep(1000)
    WEnd
    ToolTip("Flurry has ended.")
    Sleep(15000)
    Tooltip("")
