Hi. Anyone has by chance a working plugin the displays the current playing track over other applications that are running in fullscreen (games)?

I'm looking for something similar to this:

This is built in.  Go to Preferences > Now Playing and tick "Show pop-up for..."  Then you can adjust the settings as desired.

Unfortunately this doesn't cover fullscreen applications. It's not working for games.

Many games will have a fullscreen borderless option - it's how I generally run games. it's actually usually more computer friendly to do so, to be honest. and the popups will work in that mode. perhaps that will work for you :)

MB intentionally disables the popup if any full screen (covering the taskbar) applications are running

The borderless window mode does the trick unfortunately not all games support that. Anyways, problem is solved for my needs. Thanks guys.

Just one more thing.. is there a possibility to assign a hotkey to bring back the pop-up on demand?

Edit: found it. (View: Show Now Playing Notification)
