Well even if this is a basic application to start, it gets the ball rolling for future versions. Once people see it's possible, then you might find a race to get that working version to the market.

So I've posted the same comment on reddit too....but how the hell is creating a way to cheat helpful? This is not a good creation if it can be so easily done. You must have spectator overlay madness to think this is a good thing. It's completely done the wrong way.

What other way were they supposed to do it? I agree that this is definitely not the ideal circumstance to make it, but probably the only way without source code, so either we wait another year or two for SkyBox to make an overlay, or we will have to do it ourselves. As long as the creators are careful with who they share the overlay, I think this is good. If indeed it is easily done, then who says people haven't done this before? At least now we know there is a problem that needs to be fixed, that's the first step to actually fixing it.

I think it's a big problem, HD currently has literally no anti-cheat systems and when there are cheaters and they are reported, they won't get banned.

I think this i huge part of HD that could become problem in future or even at HD tournaments

Perhaps it is better to have no spec overlay than something like this ? ....
