    Known issues:
    • Playclaw will show internal IDs in overlay settings dialog unless you manually patch language files. Will be fixed with next playclaw major release (5.1?)
    • No "reconnect" event info (OBS API bug?)
    • Sometimes will still show "preview" status after finishing preview (OBS API bug)
    • No "save replay buffer" info (OBS API bug - crash)
