ImageSearch Script Closing w/ Error

Recommended Posts

Reizvoller

Hello,

I am back once again to ask for assistance. I am just trying to fool around with the "ImageSearch" function in order to detect when certain elements appear on my active window to then respond to. To begin testing this I simply cut out a small segment of my background, saved it as a BMP, and used that as the bmp for the search function. I had hoped for it to just run through quickly and say it found it and spit out the X Y coords of where it was found. Instead I am getting this : http://screencast.com/t/MD9aOzPhETE

Here's my script thus far :

#Include <msgBoxConstants.au3>
#Include <ImageSearch.au3>

global $x = 0
global $y = 0
CheckForImage ()
Func checkForImage ()
   Local $Search = _ImageSearchArea ('ninjaCheck.bmp', 1, 0, 0, 1366, 768, $x, $y, 100)
   If $Search = 1 Then
      MsgBox ($IDOK,"Found",$resultPosition)
   EndIf
EndFunc
While 1
   Sleep (10)
WEnd

What I would like assistance with is how do I "Debug" this in order to see where/why it is failing.

I've reviewed https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/FAQ#How_can_I_debug_my_script.3F but I am not entirely sure how to apply the information. If I could get a return on "Hey, this Func or This Line is where I died" , that would be awesome.

Any suggestions on how I can tackle this issue?

Thank you for your time!

checkNinja.bmp is " " around it now and it has the same result

Maybe the Ninja is against checking and killed your script?

Howdy!

"Given the name of the image for which you are checking" , I am guessing that is referencing "ninjaCheck.bmp".

I've reviewed the forum rules, as you suggested, but... I don't see what you are trying to say to me. This isn't an attempt at being facetious or evading but honestly asking for guidance with what you are saying to me. Thank you!

Thought that would be pretty obvious...right.. as your guess is correct?
In case it isn't clear then read the part about Game automation.

Okay, I have done so. How does this apply to me? 
When did I reference a game in my posts? 

"To begin testing this I simply cut out a small segment of my background, saved it as a BMP, and used that as the bmp for the search function." 

So...Am I being told to review rules rather than getting actual replies regarding my question due to an assumption that I am trying to automate game processes?

I've attached a copy of my desktop background and the segment I cut out to hopefully further emphasise the fact that I am not breaking any rules...

You have just been pointed to the rules since you used a term used in games.
In case we were convinced it was against our rules, you wouldn't have been able to post in it anymore, as we would have closed it already.

Hello,

So assumptions were made rather than asking questions for clarification. I understand.

I'd like to bring this thread back on topic since we now validated it as an actual question that doesn't break the rules.

#Include <msgBoxConstants.au3>
#Include <ImageSearch.au3>

global $x = 0
global $y = 0
CheckForImage ()
Func checkForImage ()
   Local $Search = _ImageSearch ("ninjaCheck.bmp", 1, $x, $y, 50)
   If $Search = 1 Then
      MsgBox ($IDOK,"Found",$resultPosition)
   EndIf
EndFunc
While 1
   Sleep (10)
WEnd

I've re-modified my script to try the _ImageSearch function rather than _ImageSearchArea . This tosses the same error pop-up that I linked to in my original post.

What about you step of your high horse before continuing?
This is our standard approach and when you don't like then that is your problem... sorry. ;)

Howdy,

I am sorry you somehow feel that my posts were saying "Shut up" to you. Could you cite the exact line that suggests that notion? I'd rather not make that impression again in the future.

Regarding your reply I accept it and thank you for taking the time to respond.

Now, to iterate once again to get this thread back on topic...

After manipulating my script multiple times and running it in two different environments with clean installs of AutoIt I have come to the conclusion that the library of ImageSearch.au3 is erroneous and I've reached out to the developer of said script. If I get any useful information in return I will post it here so everyone may have said information.

Reizvoller,

I would strongly suggest a serious change of attitude if you want to stick around here.

You posted a question using a filename which in our experience indicated that the question was against the forum rules. Rather then simply assuming that the question was game-related and closing the thread, I gently pointed you to the Forum rules so as to prevent any future unpleasantness. I fail to see why you have suddenly become all excited and started acting as if we had come over all heavy-handed. What you saw was our normal response when we have doubts about a question - all you needed to do was to assure us that your question was legal and we could have avoided a great deal of annoyance all round. As it is you have managed to alienate 2 of the Mods here in fairly short order - pretty good going after only 9 posts.

So I suggest you wind your neck very firmly back in and try in future not to take unwarranted offence when absolutely none has been offered.

M23

      I have loaded FastFind into my code and it takes a snapshot and creates a BMP file from it. 
      My issue is now I want to imagesearch from that BMP file (or snapshot memory) and look for a specific image from that image and get the coordinates from that. 
      I have looked at all the documentation but I cannot find anything to assist me.
       
      Does anyone have any idea?
