Hi, Years ago I tried writing something that would read the Paltalk for Desktop (aka New Paltalk) room and failed. I tried again some weeks ago and have somewhat succeeded. What I produced is an application that copies all the Paltalk room text to another window from which it can be more easily saved out because it is very difficult to create a copy of room text in Paltalk for Desktop.
I have 2 attachments, one is a screen shot showing the bot to the left and a Paltalk window to the right. The other attachment contains the application and documentation. Any feedback to me on Paltalk is welcomed.

OMG!!! it works lol man you the first person I know that was able to connect to the new Paltalk 🙂 Great job Bro.December 23, 2022 at 2:57 pm #160295
I was wondering if to connect to the rooms with unicode characters you can copy and paste the room name to a richtextbox like this room “♛ ♫♫♫ Chill And Cheerful Music ♫♫♫ ♛” and use richtextbox as the room selector instead of the combo box?December 23, 2022 at 5:42 pm #160312
Yeah, that was the exact room the selector failed on for me because I wanted to test in a room with a lot of typing. I’ll look at the room selector code to see if there is something I can fix, but your suggestion sounds like a good alternative when it fails.December 29, 2022 at 2:48 pm #161607
Here is an updated version with the room selection fixed for Unicode room names, with occasional repeat of lines fixed, and with nicknames now bold for easier viewing.

Yeps it works in room with Unicodes, one thing though when I try sending text in this room “♛ ♫♫♫ Chill And Cheerful Music ♫♫♫ ♛” the text is not sent, it gets the text from that room though. Every other room even with some unicodes works 🙂December 29, 2022 at 11:46 pm #161745
Yeah I can’t really get the Win API functions to work with at least some Unicode. The way I get the window to print text using the “Easy Enter” method is using the Win API, which fails for me with Unicode window names.
I got reading to work with Unicode window names by using the UI Automation API, which has no issues with Unicode, and I populate the combo box with that.
I’ll play around with it some day to get writing to work on Unicode windows.
The Paltalk client UI Automation doesn’t expose any other content in the window – i.e., not who is on mic, who is in the room. Since its main reason for existence should be screen readers for the blind that seems unfortunate.January 5, 2023 at 3:28 pm #163286
If you ever decide to share the code let me know I have some ideas I can do with it 🙂January 26, 2023 at 10:01 pm #170619trumhamdoaMember
