    Can anyone confirm this? Heard through the grapevine. Would like some clarity.

    Keyclone is a key broadcasting application that allows users to control multiple instances of an application using a single keyboard/input device. While commonly used for multiboxing videogames (playing multiple characters at once), Keyclone is suited for a wide range of use cases that require broadcasting individual inputs to multiple instances of an application.

    Essentially, keyclone is a program to program, unicasting keyboard emulator.

    Keyclone links applications together...enabling you to hit 'F1' within one application, and having that key simultaneously sent to each of the other ap..."

    Now, if this is legal it should be common knowledge. If it is not legal... I'm assuming it's really hard to crackdown on... but should be looked into.

    <<< No, I only use a razor. I just liked your topic. And when you described the principle of action, I remembered the triple box, which will be implemented easier if you apply keyclone.

    Technically nothing but Razor is allowed as a 3rd party app.

    Is it legal? Depends who you are.

    Watch how many likes this post will get and then watch who comes in and posts some rowdy shit after.

    Keycloner = God mode.

    It’s not client side, so isn’t detectable. Even if you record someone abusing it in packet videos and send it to Chris nothing will happen.

    Well, you might get banned for reporting it because that seems to be what happens here if you report someone for doing anything. Keycloner, buying gold for RL money, Selling items for RL money. Ask Scuba.

    Keycloner can be used remotely too. So everyone in your group can run it and one person can have control over an infinite group of players. Combo that with a designated macro to cast EXPLO-EBOLT on a specific player using character ID’s you get off the website and you can have one person, pressing one button and 12 characters (4 people) will drop an EXPLO-EBOLT on one person.

    That’s the insane offensive abilities of Keycloner.

    The defensive abilities of Keycloner are equally insane.
    You can create a macro for F1, that alternates between chugging G Cure (if poisoned) and G Heal (if not poisoned) while at the same time that F1 Macro button through Keycloner is triggering a macro that casts G Heals on a loop and targeting the one character who’s getting synced on from your other 2 toons. Set those 2 toons to auto follow you with pathfinding enabled and you’re basically a one man, one screen, one button survival expert.

    That’s an example of that btw.

    In short, IMO Keycloner is a straight up pussy move. It should be banned. People caught using it should be banned. It’s OP as fuck. And don’t even get me started on its use in taming.

    It’s use here is rampant and un checked and lots and LOTS of people have asked to have an official ruling stated on its use. Last thread that got posted about it included a set up guide and all the macros I talked about was deleted after about 20 seconds.

    For real, long live UOR but if this is legal you might as well pull the plug now.

    Keycloner sounds exactly like a program people would use here who have nothing better to do than triple box tamers 24/7 and get to the top of every pvm leaderboard

    I feel this is sufficient.

    All the things that fall into the area between explicitly allow and explicitly disallowed, use your best judgement and make your own decision on whether YOU want to use it or not.

    My suspicion is that folks care more about controlling the game play of OTHERS rather than themselves.

    I for one am tired of folks whining about the gameplay of others and running to staff. On the flip side, I am equally tired of folks pushing the boundaries and outright cheating and violating the rules and hiding behind excuse, lies and gaslighting

    Since when is asking for clarity any of what you just posted in obnoxious colours?
    it’s not bitching, I’m not running to staff, I’m not cheating or pushing boundaries.
    since when did asking questions deserve denigration?
