Detecting Pixels in a Streamed Game Window

Overcome pixel colours changing in a streamed game window by using the Colour List

Pixel colours in a streamed game window will normally vary slightly during gameplay due to the quality of the stream. As a result, using a Single Colour or a standard Colour Range for pixel detection is normally unsuccessful or at the very best temperamental. Instead, using a Colour List to create a Colour Range is the best solution and will help to ensure pixels are always detected.

To create a Colour Range from a Colour List, perform the following actions in the Pixel Detection window:

1. Make sure you have specified where in the game window the pixel to look for is positioned

Specify the Fixed X or Fixed Y settings for a Fixed pixel, or the Top, Left, Bottom, Right settings of a Scan Area for a Variable pixel.

For further details, refer to the Detecting a Fixed Pixel guide.

2. Click the Colour setting list box then click the Range option

3. Click the Use Colour List setting checkbox to add a tick to it

4. Move the cursor over the top of the required pixel in Snapshot

5. Press the left mouse button

A crosshair appears in Snapshot and the colour of the pixel is displayed.

6. Click the Live setting checkbox to add a tick to it

7. Click the Add button to add the pixel colour to the Colour List

8. Invoke a pixel colour change in the game window

EXAMPLE: For an MMORPG, move your character in the game and/or move the mouse over then away from the object in the game that contains the pixel.

9. Repeat actions 7 and 8 until at least 10 colours have been added to the Colour List

Add more colours if pixel detection continues to fail.

10. Set the - Buffer and + Buffer settings to 10

These settings provide a buffer at either end of the Colour Range to compensate for higher and lower RGB values that have not been added to the Colour List. Increase these values if pixel detection continues to fail.
