    Default HotKeyNet a buggy mess?

    Hey everyone,

    I used HKN for a few days no problems, now suddenly it randomly stops working. It can work flawless for 2 hours and then suddenly stop broadcasting. I then need to restart HKN, and from there it can either work for another 2 hours or die after 2 broadcasts.

    I've read about all this "hidden windows" nonsense, but those posts are from 2017-2018 and none of their solutions work for me. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!

    If it was free and simple I would. Do you have any input regarding the topic at hand tho?

    I never had that issue with it. Maybe you hit scroll lock somehow and turned your hotkeys off? I would suggest you add a hotkey that re-renames all your windows so if it does happen you can try to brute force all the windows and hidden windows back to their correct names. I would also make sure if you do already have a hotkey for that in your script that you also have one to rename them all back to "World of Warcraft" again. Sometimes I would have a hidden window or two not get renamed so i would have to cycle my 2 hotkeys to fix it.. One hotkey to rename them all to Mage1, Mage2, etc...And the other hotkey to rename them all back to World of Warcraft and try again. Sometimes it would take a few cycles of those hotkeys to fix it

    Unfortunately hotkeys don't work for renaming my windows, I have to do it manually with SHIFT-R.

    Something like this will make the CTRL + R hotkey combination rename your windows. And the ALT + R hotkey combination name them back. You can try cycling through them back and forth a few times and seeing if it can get them unstuck. Each cycle I would try to press it twice or a few more times to catch the hidden windows. You might want to try posting this question on hotkeynet's forum if you still can\t figure it out. Good luck

    Yes I've used this script. Nothing happens when I use it.

    Also registration on the HotKeyNet forum is closed.

    Hasn't really changed, hidden windows stops broadcasting.
