Yes, really. The fact that it has the ability to macro can get you banned, whether you decide to use that feature or not. However, the loot alert portion of the program that you are interested in using reads data from the Diablo 3 processes in the RAM, which is also against the rules.

Third-party software of any kind is not permitted in conjunction with Diablo III. I would highly suggest you check out this blog post for further information.
dude, the game barely works on its own, you think they're ready to monitor and support 3rd party apps?

no way they allow anything like that just because they couldnt handle another variable right now.
sooo multiboxing is illegal then?? Ok ban everybody thats uses it please

Loot Alert breaks ToS because it reads data from RAM. Multiboxing loads the windows for the game but does nothing inside of it. Broadcasting keys to the spawned windows != changing conditions or reading data from RAM.

This all comes down to the type of manipulation. Whether or not it data mines or automates behavior, for example.

You're wrong and he just carefully explained exactly why you are wrong.

Ban anybody that uses a headset too
Seriously useless (I would say stupid but that would be impolite) comment. Perhaps if you learn a bit about computers you will find that using a headset is a bit different from running a program that interacts with the D3 program and/or data. Grow some neurons for more useful interaction.

Sounds like someone needs to be taught what drivers are.

here is a good example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3jNLRJx4mk

he is controling 4 barbs through one screen, that means the other 3 screens are copying his exact key inputs. Please explain how this is fair and isnt some form of cheating?

and you guys are overseeing the big picture here...the whole point of my OP was to point out the obvious fact you are using 3rd party software to run multiple screens at once. As the blue post above states, 3rd party software is illegal so that means multiboxing is technically illegal. Whether it does crap with ram or whatever else excuses you guys can come up with.to give it the benefit of the doubt.
Try it and when you are Banned, then we will know won't we.
