"Would it be possible to change PixelNotifier such that an alert is triggered when the monitored pixel changes FROM it's current color value as opposed to when it changes TO a user defined, (anticipated), color value?"

I've modified the original download from the Skrommel site to support your request, and also updated the documentation in the ini file (source and sample ini in the attached zip file)
No compiled exe is provided, so you'll have to have AutoHotKey installed on your computer.

Modification: The pixelcolor can now optionally be prefixed with an exclamation mark, like !FFFFFF, so the pixel is watched for being not-equal to that color. The message should probably be adjusted accordingly.

NB: There is no support for setting this option from using the Add alarm... option from the context menu, but it can easily be set as the ini file is opened after adding an alarm.

Code: Autohotkey [Select]

  2. ; Watches a screen pixel for a specific color, and notifies the user when it occurs.
  3. ;Skrommel @2005
  4. ; 2019-03-02 Ath: Added inverted check by prefixing the pixelcolor with !

This is awesome, thanks so much. 

I feel like this script will be a lot more useful now to a lot of people.  I personally use it for detecting changes in a software which does not have support for notifications.  I have it set up to send me an email anything the color is NOT detected in a pixel 😊
