WP 2.0 does not properly count
#11
I am getting the same issue. I tried lots of different things, but I can't figure it out. I am thinking there is a bug somewhere, but not sure were the bug is at tho.
#12
From the descriptions, this looks like the team missed something. I have no idea when it will be fixed, but have you checked you network options? I have a feeling that's not it, but it's worth a shot. It's holiday time, so I won't expect anything to be done until after the new year.

i've reinstalled WP+ WinPCap and now sometimes it's counting, and sometimes counting freezes. i played fullscreen games and WP was counting then, but randomly it's stop counting and i must restart WP...
why, oh why dear admins?

PS
and yes, i run wp as administrator.

I installed WP to track my stepmania keystrokes so it's a bit annoying if it doesn't work Confused

I tried all of the above (reinstalled WP, installed WinPCap, gave admin privileges) but still doesn't register.

Any ideas ? Smile

Edit: did some additional testing and when I run the game and alt-tab it, it doesn't register either. With the game still alt-tabbed, I restarted WP and it was registering again. But once I went back to the game, it stopped again.

As a fellow Stepmania player, your problem is playing fullscreen. Use windowed mode, it'll even increase your performance as you don't have to move your eyes as much.

same problem here i hope they come out with an update
#16
Same problem. Need to restart app after exiting fullscreen.
That only counts for games, not for movies or software, so only "true" fullscreen.
Windows 7 64bit here.

For now, there is one solution. In order for the client to count stats, games must be played in windowed mode if possible.

I tried everything above, and I also used Windowed mode (Stepmania). It still doesn't track my keytaps.

I use Windows 7 64bit by the way.

And it was working in 1.7?

I think we are hitting Windows API limits, we could switch back to the old counting code from 1.7 for fullscreen applications.

Run WP as an admin.

Which Windows API's are WP tied into and which one is affected?
