  1. Launchers are annoying! my (rift) AutoHotKey script

    Is there anything more annoying than typing a password 5x and then having to move your hand to the mouse to click?

    Ok yeah there are lots of things more annoying, but this week this particular annoyance was top of my multiboxing to-do list (more on this later).

    AutoHotKey is a freeware scripting program that I've been using for at least the last six years to handle many custom tweaks to computer input. The number one thing I use it for is to open the downloads folder ...

  2. Communication macros: "Yes, I'm multiboxing dammit"

    The subject of behavior and interaction in video games, especially strangers has long been of interest to me. I've often wondered: "What can I say in this moment to foster teamwork and facilitate getting the job done?" in a variety of gaming contexts. I marvel watching my significant other play co-op games where everyone is silent until the recriminations and bile start halfway through the match. A little communication can go a long way towards ensuring ...

  3. Lazy solution: Dpsing healer

    I usually quest and rift with my healer in healing spec (and my tank in dps spec). This costs me something in terms of time but I like to think I make it up in time NOT spent rezzing the team after a miscalculation. After switching to a 1-1-3 setup (before I was using a tank and four hybrid dps) I realized that I wanted an easy way to do a little dps on my healer when she wasn't otherwise engaged but not at the cost of there ever being any ambiguity what "mode" she was in.

  4. Multiboxing skills: what are they and do you have them?

    I've been multiboxing 2-6 boxes across 3 games since the summer of 2008, so I suppose that is six years of experience, on and off. Most of that time has been spent in World of Warcraft, a few weeks in Lord of the Rings and a few weeks in Rift (last summer and right now). So I've been practicing for years but I'm not sure if that means I'm actively getting better. When I play (raid on) a solo character (almost always a healing priest in wow) I have very definite ways in which to improve. Not only ...

  5. Rift Video Feeds

    My processor doesn't have the juice to record or stream rift while I'm playing but I thought I'd share what my current setup looks like, especially my current video feed setup which I find does an excellent job.

    My goal with my setup is that I have to turn my head as little as possible, that all of the information I need is readily available on my first monitor. When I'm outside instances I generally don't even have the second IS window visible, so the left hand monitor must show me ...
