I have to say the concept and images do not do this tool justice -
it is quite amazing to see it in action.

it actually finds the normal windows minesweeper executable running, then takes screenshot of the window(!) then figures out the grid given the screenshot, then solves as much as it can, and then sends clicks back over to the minesweeper exe.

it actually made me laught out loud in suprise and pleasure as i was watching it work.. pretty damn amazing.

see the help file inside for a bit on the mathematics of how it works.

Hi. I like the idea of this program, but it doesn't work on my computer! No matter what I set in the Prefer menu, when I try to capture, it says:
Using Direct Capturing Algo
Problems finding game or errors

The minesweeper on my computer is named winmine.exe, and it is Polish version of the program, so the caption of the window is 'Saper'. Is it what makes troubles?

By the way - when you make the Demine window large, you can see Panel2 caption on it... it isn't deliberate I guess :)

Yes, as explained in the html help You have to add a line like the following:
Saper  Saper
to the .gam file in the .exe directory
Also Saper must already be running.
