I've had some problems lately with skills where the progress bar ends on top of the numbers
exactly... the problems i've been reported, from other people, occurred as well when a digit is exactly on top of the yellow bar.

so, yeah, please do send me a PNG screenshot of any screen where you detect an OCR fail :thumbup:

this message occurs when the scanner does not detect the EU skill window. please check the following:
- you need to run EU in window mode, or in full-screen windowed mode (new mode introduced in recent VUs); if you run it in real exclusive full-screen mode, the windows clipboard does not get any content by pressing PrntScrn (it gets a full-black bitmap). This is a windows "feature", so there is nothing we can do about it (in Win10)
- the EU skill window is fully visible. the detection works by checking some graphics in the corners of the skill window, so if the window is not fully visible, the scanner cannot find it
- most typical problem: make sure that the skill window is in foreground. the skill window becomes more translucent when you click in the EU desktop, or if you click on another GUI element in the EU client. so, first, click on the skill window, and then hit Alt-PrnScrn

if nothing of the above works, then please, take a screenshot of your EU skill window in PNG format, and sent it to me by email (jdegre@gmail.com)

Causing a conflict on purpose by using Greenshot + the Entropia print screen action library key at the same time:

( 524594 ms) Clipboard in use PID: 14832 Process: Entropia.exe Class: CryENGINE




The reason I put in the last part is to show that no conflicts (that I could see) were happening otherwise. I'm not going to pretend to know exactly, but when I was trying to troubleshoot it, the only solution I could find was the code for the scanner needs tweaked to take ownership of the clipboard contents.

Hi mate,
Checking the text you posted below, it seems that the problem is caused because you tried to make the scan before "logging-in" in the scanner. Try again, please, after having entered your scanner user/pwd, and let me know if it works ok for you.


It won't run for me on Win 7, Win 8.1 or Win 10.

Been playing around in EU again after taking a break. I remember there was a way to view a chart of your skill scans that I had book-marked. I lost the bookmark in changing computers.

Could you make the link permanent on either jdegre.net/pe/unlocker.php or jdegre.net/pe/scanner/ ? It's fun seeing changes over time! Also, any other not well known features?

Thanks!

Would love to see update on looter professions. Some guys here on forum already have worked out the skill contributions to new profs.

v0.58

I have added several looting skills; still missing Butchering (if anyone has this skill unlocked, please drop me a msg, so I can add it to the Scanner).

BTW, in case anyone wonders... I have been _much_ slower than usual in updating the tool due to a combination of events: I messed up my developing environment due to the Java 9 and Java 10 versions, not being compatible with some of my tools; and, on top of that, these last months I have been absurdly busy with IRL work and biz travels, etc... :(

I even have been unable to answer lots of messages asking about the accounts in my site, etc... sorry about that. If anyone still has questions, please shoot again!

@duncis: next item in my TO-DO list is updating the looting professions with the skill breakdown available in other threads, but that requires only a change in the database, no need to update the Scanner again (well, it will have to be updated whenever I get the Butchering skill info, as stated above).

Cheers,
/jdegre.

Added Butchering (thx Oleg) and Scavenging (thx Smilgs) !

Now, going over the skills breakdown of the professions. I have been using the very good thread from Parlog as a starting point, but I'm still missing lots of data). Working on it...

In the Chipping Optimizer there are no check boxes next to the new skills to select them.

Do these new skills help anything that worth anything at all like Laser hit or damage or just another BS by MA ?

A small (and pointless) change you'll want to know about: The Material Manufacturer and Enhancer Manufacturer professions have been changed to Material Constructor and Enhancer Constructor.

Skill scanner doesn't work with newest java update to me. When you try starting it the program has a white screen (freezing) then it shuts down.

Is this fixed?
do you mean the issue that Sub-Zero reported 2 msgs ago? If so, I worked with him to figure out what was the issue, and (iirc) we concluded that it was something related to his java setup since he had the same issue (blank screens) with all other java apps in his PC.

in any case, I would not be surprised if there are glitches with the newest java versions, since I don't have them installed in my PC, and I have only tested the scanner with Java 8.

With that version, I confirm the scanner is working fine, as of today. Tomorrow, after the VU, who knows what will happen! (it may be that the scanner stops working entirely, if the graphic updates on the EU skill windows are drastic enough).

It sounds like you are also getting tired MA "Making things better" The only thing I see from MA's "betterment" movement is we are loosing second party tools like Tracker and maybe even your product. It seems MA is on a mission to negate any outside tool to collect data other than what they provide. Moreover, if you submit a support case about something in-game they answer with "We are not allowed to discuss game play" and it stops there(When first started I asked if MA had a map or locations were mobs were located so I could hunt different mobs and that was the answer I got). We have lost the ways to keep MA honest. Kind of reminds one of some countries where the government controls everything the people see and hear.

Suggestion / Wish List

Is there any way to un-tick or tick all the skills in a section in one go? rather than go through each one by one.

e.g.

In the Health section, if I wanted to only find the effect of Courage then I have to go through the entire list and un-tick all the skills, would be nice to have a "un-tick all" option

Has anyone ever noticed that the skills scanned and exported to CSV don't seem to match what is kept on the skill scanner site?

At this snapshot in time, I have 106,274 total skills that I scanned and exported to CSV and uploaded to EntropiaWiki.

However my signature which seems to pull from chip optimizer shows 105,709 total skills. A difference of 565 fewer skill points.

:confused:
