    Well,I bought it a short time ago,the biggest problem is that I have to buy decapther credits.It's not cheap,I can order a fiverr gig that blast me 7000 profiles with xrumer,if I do it with scrapeboard,it cost me more.My question is -will they enhance their internal OCR so that I won't need any extra cost?Thanks in advance

    Looking forward to it as well. I will buy scrapeboard as soon as they have an OCR integrated as its not that cheap to create forum profile using a decaptcher account. It will drain out pretty soon.

    OCR is really difficult to do. Xrumer has an OCR which is notorious and well talked about ie it's powerful captcha 'breaking' capabilities, but in actual fact it's far from the omnipotent beast it's made out to be. It can only crack forum specific captchas, any other platforms and you have to use external captcha services, and recaptcha success rate is extremely poor. If botmaster has trouble with it, you can be sure Sweetfunny is going to be stressed as hell about it as it's no mean feat.

    For me, Xrumer solves most captchas...it's actually better than deathbycaptcha....

    False success rates. Xrumer has a lot more bugs than you think. For example, it will report captcha successfully decoded (particularly recaptcha) but in reality, it has not solved it at all and so the registration has failed. The only way to verify this is to go to Debug mode and check one by one. The message you get when you're registering is inaccurate in a great number of cases.

    There is no way in hell Xrumer will be able to beat a service like Deathbycaptcha, because DBC is specialized to captcha solving OCR (that's all they do) PLUS they have human solvers for those captchas which the OCR did not solve. Xrumer cannot solve captchas for which captcha DLLs haven't been created. Therefore, if you get platform X which has its own captcha format captcha X, and DLL X has not been created by Botmaster, there is no way in hell Xrumer will be able to decode it. Xrumer isn't some amazing intelligent robot which can read like a human and decode any text you put in front of it. External services such as captchabot and DBC, on the other hand, can tackle almost any type of captcha you put in front of it. I'm not sure if captchabot uses human solvers, but if not, that means their OCR is freaking awesome.

    There is massive, massive room for improvement in captcha solving OCR from baseline of Xrumer. This is, perhaps, where Sweetfunny could really get one up on Botmaster. But, unfortunately, most users would not see it this way, because Xrumer reports so many false successes that you THINK your registration/post has succeeded when in fact it stopped at the captcha (even with 100% correct xmessages).

    Thanks for the info. Didn't know that a lot of those were false positives. If that's the case, it's really a bummer...

    Still, it's free! And iv'e had really, really bad results with deathbycaptchas...though decaptcher has been pretty good....

    There is massive room for improvements, for all current OCR that exist right now. Even ones owned by google etc. Remember this are not well formed texts with natural noise from scanned files, captchas have artificial noise created to stop machines reading it. Creating a captcha decoder is a very big project that would take a lot of time and dedication. You can try to code one to decode the simplest captchas out there so youll understand it.

    It's about to get ALOT harder with question based captcha gaining popularity.
    omida 86 your post seems like a plug for decaptcha,I use deathbycapcha and have never seen anything other than great results,I personally know over 150 people who use it and swear by it.My own view is all captcha services will have a similar success %.
    The reason alot of sites have letters and numbers in the background is to f*ck up automated services,hell even manually it's confusing,it's deliberate.
    I'll tell you what post a few urls where deathbycaptcha has failed,I'll test them myself for you,
