ISBoxer allows me to split single commands to multiple accounts.
When I press 1, EACH ACCOUNT accepts 1, AND ONLY 1, as an input. It does not matter if EACH ACCOUNT does SOMETHING DIFFERENT based on MY INPUT as long as EACH INPUT only has a SINGLE ACTION PER ACCOUNT.
If I used a program that allowed me to press one keystroke and send MORE THAN ONE COMMAND PER ACCOUNT then it would be against the rules.
This means that if you use a macro... and you type 1 ONCE , and it will "type" 1 over and over again, then it is automation.
This means if you use a macro... and you type 1 ONCE, and it will "type" 1 four times to ONE ACCOUNT, then that is automation.
However if you type 1 ONCE, and it "types" 1 ONCE, PER ACCOUNT, then that is NOT automation.
This is NO DIFFERENT than what the software can do in other games. Just because there is a "follow" feature is irrelevant. The mouse cursor is still mirrored in those other games.
This is NO DIFFERENT than what you can do with hardware, known as a KVM switch.
This is NO DIFFERENT than if you wanted to use tape, gears, pulleys, board, and string with 4 mice and 4 keyboards together, you get the same result.
This is NO DIFFERENT than the evolution that came when cavemen invented the wheel, and I do NOT understand why you all whine about it.
