Image Recognition Wizard only works in windowed mode (not in Directx full screen)

Post by directx11 » Fri Dec 21, 2018 3:31 pm

Hi,

The image recognition wizard only works in windowed mode - I took screenshots in fullscreen and using the image recognition wizard selecting parts of the image and the compiled code works fine but only in windowed mode. The issue is that I couldn't take those images in full screen but I'm assuming they're the same (same resolution png images).

The code works fine in windowed mode but not in directx fullscreen applications/games - I've read this is a limitation of all image recognition software as only the application is given priority but would like confirmation.
I'm running the code in administrator.

Any ideas?

If my understanding is correct 'fullscreen' games basically cause all other apps to stop working - basically it puts Windows into single tasking mode. Therefore if the game is in full screen mode Macro Scheduler cannot operate.
