Scan Prices Edit
The SCAN PRICES button brings you to the OCR working area.
Here is EliteOCR used in the back to scan the commodities displayed in game. But first you have to select a CLEAN SCAN or an UPDATE SCAN before using OCR.
The CLEAN SCAN is used to set all previously recorded commodity values to zero. That can be necessary, if the available commodities have changed from the last scan done. You have to scan the complete list of commodities displayed in game again.
The UPDATE SCAN is used, if the available commodities at the station are still the same and you want only update prices and stock values of them.
Thereafter you can click on START OCR SCAN for every page of the in game commodity list. The status indicator shows what happening. RED shows, that the screenshot making is underway. YELLOW shows, EliteOCR processes the screenshot and the data got imported and GREEN shows, that a new scan can be done.
A green checkmark or a red cross is displayed behind each commodity. It informs you, if the scanned data is faulty or not. You can edit the wrong value manually with clicking on it or perform a new scan of the page.
