maybe a bit more font difference? different colors, thats good, (do they switch around each time or is the 1st digit always green etc?)

font stays similar alway through, that could be improved on..

but still i would say its better than phpbb one.

also, does the background change? like the background letters move around?

i quite like it :) Its not going to be very machine readable, which normally means it won't be very human readable, but it is :!: unlike the hotmail one... lol

Demo can be found here: http://phpbb.paulscripts.nl/profile.php ... greed=true

And, sometimes it isn't readable good, but the most cases it is readable well.

Logic. This is self written, and they can ONLY deface big captcha. Captchas that not use really much, they don't try to deface ;)

a machine generated image, desgned to be hard to read to machines, but easy for humans.

Its visual confirmation.

Many big ones can be read by machine, phpbb is 98% cracked, this one is 0% cracked, well for now.

Not working

Post by doneng » Sun May 14, 2006 4:49 am

Not working for me on PhpBB 2.0.20. Have the GT extension active. I get the confirmation box and it changes colors, but no text or anything else in the box.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Don
