Reading a text in game - (Locked)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am very new to AutoIT, so I would really appreciate your help with my scripting issue :)

I'm trying to find a way to read a simple text (character name) in a game.

So basically what I want my script to do is to look for the name "meepmoopmeow" from a specific fifixed window location. And if it doesn't find it, call Exit.

Here's a screenshot of the text image.


Is this possible? Which function should I use to read the text?

I have tried WinGetText but it did not recognised the texts (duh!).

I have read about the use of OCR such as Tesseract to read texts from images but the problem is I might be sending the script other Non IT people who will not have Tesseract application.


Many thanks in advance!
