Anyone trying I.s boxer yet? (multiboxing)


33 posts in this topic

Posted

I have only seen 1 video on u tube about it, some level 19 , 4 witches and a valkyrie. I have done multiboxing on Wow a bit and thought it was a blast.  Is anyone out there trying it atm? i would love to hear about it and does it play well with this game.  Am NOT interested in doing it with pvp , so please dont go there with cry post counter arguments, Purely pve. Am interested in how it plays with I.s boxer as its a program i have tried before.  If soo i'd very much like to hear about your builds /  set ups and how u do it.  cheers.

Most other companys dont have a real problem with ppl multiboxing. Sad if this is the case. From Wow to Lotr to Diablo3 . i have played all of these multiboxing . Never been banned, i know it can be a a grey area rules wise. Is this the offical answer? i love a Dev to give a solid answer before i invest or am banned.

He posted the official response...Yes, the devs are banning multiboxers. Buy multiple accounts and do so at your own risk.

Multiboxing is cheating and disciplinary action should be taken.

I don't think XIGNCode will allow you to run it. The game will shut down if there is more than one instance running. You would have to do some serious workaround to get it to work anyhow.

Multiboxing was a scourge of WoW seriously,

 

The same guy on Outland called rizzy (he had 40 accounts....) kept doing it and lagging the entire area for everyone. Pretty much just ruined the capital for an hour just because he was a toxic dickhead. People who do this shit need to be banned instantly,  it's toxic and a plague. And i'm glad Daum actually have the balls to ban them.

Good riddance.

It's not a shame. It's a form of botting... One person controlling multiple characters and doing the similar action with the stroke of a key. Other games allowed it because they didn't care. BDO gives a damn and good on them for doing so.

If by Dev, you mean someone who officially works for the company then you already have your answer, Kennocha just posted the official response. No multiboxing.

Frankly, I love this. Multiboxing is just a form of botting, and should not be allowed.

Are programs or hardware i use such as a g19 keyboard / macros bannable?

I think they stated that you can multibox provided you use a separate mouse and keyboard for each version, as long as you don't use a third party software to emulate keystrokes it is possible, if impractical...

Blade and SOul

Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars

All games from gameforge

You don't need the devs to comment on this post, you just need to check the news and announcements.

Multi-boxing is (kind of) fine so long as you're not using any kind of software to control multiple characters at once.

It should be noted that if XIGNCODE blocks your account(s) for multiboxing you are on your own.

It's all in the post people have linked here.

multiboxing and botting are NOT the same thing.

Multiboxing means you running 2 or more accounts...  That's it, you could have one farming, the other one gathering and the ntrading on the 3rd one, but doing all the actions manually, in a 1:1 click ratio.

Botting is using a program to automatize the process, making the job easier by running on a scrip or such.

Join a guild and play the game.

Playing years of Lineage 2 I have met and talked to multiboxers and not just a buffer (which is normal for L2) but whole parties and all of them have a disgusting selfish mentality and i'm sure you are no different.

Help make this game great and do not play on your own.

The BDO rules are very similar to those over at Archeage. You are quite welcome to multibox as long as you use a separate PC and keyboard for each character but running multiple characters simultaneously on a single PC using something like IS Boxer isn't allowed. As the OP says, most AAA mmorpgs such as WoW, LotRO, Rift etc do allow IS Boxer but it seems Korean games such as Archeage and BDO don't.

No. Macros aren't allowed either.

I don't know whether macros are allowed or not, but I can tell you that they are not effective. Animation canceling is part of the strategy in this game, making macros less effective than manually controlling your character.

"Users who are caught blatantly using Macros, especially in ways that would be considered botting, exploiting or game breaking, can expect to be sanctioned based on the gravity of the offense. Sanctioned action may include a permanent ban from the game."

No, because it's against the EULA and will get you banned.
