Is autoit able to read this (image) text?

As you can see theres a background image that changes size/image according to the items stats/type. So I cant just use a image search to confirm key words.

The fonts tahoma (I think) if that helps.

So anyone know what I should try/look up?

Search on forum about OCR, maybe can help you.

Isn't OCR based on where the pixels are located?

I though that bg image would cause it to misread.

Guess Ill just have to try it.

Would ABBYY Fine Reader work? It’s a ocr program I already had ABBYY 6 and tried it but it only picked up a few words (maybe 5% of the total) I’m downloading ABBYY 9 now.

ABBYY 9 works better but it's still only 75-80% accurate.

Anyone got a suggestion?

Bump-ish

It was suggested to use a pixelchecksum() for each affix but it would take pretty long to collect all the values.

Anyone else got a suggestion?

Bump-ish

I've started getting the pixelchecksum but it's going take we weeks+ just to get half of them.

Willing to try any suggestion.

Pain

Pixelchecksum only allows you to see if "something" has changed in a region - it does not tell you exactly what has changed.

So if you are going to read the text pixelchecksum is not what you are looking for.

Return Value

Returns the checksum value of the region.

$checksum = PixelChecksum(0,0, 50,50)


MsgBox(0, "", $checksum)

I don't want to do it but it seems that I'm going have to get a pixelchecksum for every key word on every line for every different item type and use their values to compare if that key word is there. Which is going take very long time.

/edit with 7+ hours of work I'm only 3% done so ya I'm looking for a easier/faster way.

First off, don't bump within 24 hours,

and don't triple+ post, just edit the previous.

So after reading your post:

You are trying to read the image to get text back.

Now the pictures you have supplied seem to be of a game,

I am not sure the purpose of the program you are trying to make,

however I suggest you read over THIS.

Now back to the problem at hand,I take it you want to read the pictures "on the fly"( as soon as they pop up ;) ).

Anyways, if the text in the pictures changes when in any sort of program that it may be running from, there is always the option of using the Memory-Reading style of getting the information. This would give you real time data that can be stored as variables and used in any way you wish. For example, if you wanted to , you could display a GUI with all the data arranged in any way you wish.

This would be 100% accurate(if done properly!) and constantly up to date.

Best of luck,

maestro.

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

Well we all learned thatway,

i typically just read them in order from most recent, but have caught myself replying to a couple of really old ones the last couple of days after they were bumped. I miss some of the old sorting functionality of the forum, specifically the last seven days, fewest replies(for a range), and posts i've responded to searches.
