    Default HoteKeyNet Dual Box Secret World Legends - Cant rename window anymore

    Hello, this is the first time i am posting here, so sorry in advance if i made mistakes in my post.
    In the past i used HotKeyNet to dual-box Secret World Legends.
    However, now, upon returning to the game after 2 years, i find that HKN does not rename the windows of SWL, although it works fine with other games.

    I tried renaming manually... not working.

    Tried every renaming method on the HKN website to no avail.
    I have notice that in task manager, SWL has two processes for 1 client...



    I have researched a bit about it... but i could not find any info regarding this game [SWL]
    The solution below is something similar i think... but it is for world of warcraft and o matter how hard i struggled to apply it to Swl... it does not work.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Did you open the hotkeynet as admin?

    Can you show what appear on the hotkeynet when you try to rename it?

    One window is visible and the other is hidden?

    Hello. Sorry for the late reply, i thought no one would answer me since at first i checked daily.

    So... when i first posted this... Yes, i opened it as an admin.
    On HKN it appeared that window rename of Secret World Legends was a succes for both clients.
    Hm, as i opened 2 clients of SWL (this game requires to copy and paste the game so you can open a 2nd client). Although in task manager it shows the main branch of the process titled Secret World Legends TSWLiveWin32 swl_v2.3.1@598962 (32) and the one under it as Secret World Legends [as shown in my previous post] , the game window [as seen from window mode] is Secret World Legends.

    Today, i used the same script but opened the clients as a non-admin and it actually RENAMED THEM both... but it still does not work...
    HKN shows that it sends

    From this pc: <SendWinM SWL1><Key 3><SendWinM SWL2><Key 3>
    <SendWinM SWL1> completed: Window found. Target set to 0x805D6 "SWL1"
    <Key 3> completed
    <SendWinM SWL2> completed: Window found. Target set to 0x1A05CC "SWL2"
    <Key 3> completed

    <Key 1> completed

    Try renaming all the four windows, from 1 to 4 and test if any keys work.

    Perhaps this window Secret World Legends is responsible for the commands in game?

    You can use the command ShowWin to see how this window looks like too.

    That's all I can think right now, never heard of this game, so I don't know exactly how it works.

    And relax about the late reply, this forum needs a revamp and I think they are working on it to make it easier and convidative

    I tried renaming all 4 windows, but to no avail. Maybe i am doing something wrong. Although, at least, when opened as non admin, the branch windows get renamed.

    I tried ShowWin, however i am not sure what it is supposed to do exactly. The thing is, in window mode, the game title shows as the branch name "Secret World Legends" and this is the one which gets renamed, but it does not broadcast the keys, although hkn stats it did in its log.

    Any other free software similar to HKN that i could try ?
