Which windows versions are you two running?

I moved my play to a Win 10 VM from Win 7 and resolved the name scraping issues along with the overlapping windows problems.

I am using Win 10 VM as well.

As a side question: Rem, what happens when you get 6 Stars? Do you get King-ed as an admin, like Alex? #SettingLifeGoals

Sorry of OffTopic here, also noticed Rem doing very well, all members of this community should add up and get him a ticked to Sunday Million when he will reach 6 stars. :D

Unless it's an unreachable goal and remains at 5.5 stars forever! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I just use regular Windows 10 on my laptop. I don't use a VM on the laptop because it slows things down too much. I'm 90% sure, however, that when I use a cloud based VPS, the names get scraped correctly.

Looking into this has actually been high on my list, since I'm really wanting to include PT stats....though I guess I could just use the VPS, but it seemed a little jerky last time I used it. I could probably expand the specs, but trivial as it might seem, I'd rather not spend $2+ a day to run a VPS.

So my plan is to first, confirm that my VPS scraped names look the same as my laptop scraped names. If so, I was going to 1) send a sample to Alex and see if he had any additional suggestions; and 2) look into whether it made sense for me to try to re-create hashes on my laptop -- if my laptop and VPS are getting the same scrape, it seems like it's got to me something about the letter recognition code, and I think that will lead me to hashes.

(Obviously, if the scrapes look different, well, then I have a different issue.)
