    Default Anyone try Lidc?

    I did a little ghetto dual-boxing in wow vanilla and am going to start playing wow again in classic. I'll be subbing to 3 accounts so I can play with my kids and thought might as well get into multiboxing.

    I'm still trying to figure out what software I'll use, preferably something easy, ISBoxer is of course a contender, but have any of you tried Lidc https://www.lidcmultiboxing.com? I can't seem to find any reviews of anything about it but it's slightly cheaper and looks good.

    I don't have active wow atm, I could try it using trial accounts in bfa but I'll wait until closer to classic's launch as to not waste the 30 day free trial. Anyways thanks.

    Never heard of this before, but if you don't want to spend money on something great like isboxer, hotkeynet still works and is free

    It kinda looks like an updated version of Keyclone for 2019, but at $35/year instead of Keyclone's $20/lifetime. If Lidc was maybe $20/year, I could see it being more of an alternative to, or competitor with ISBoxer, but if you're already willing to go with a program that requires an active subscription, then it's hard to pass up IS/ISBoxer for just an additional $1.25 every month.

    I am willing to go subscription if necessary. I've been looking into ISboxer which seems rather complicated but powerful. Problem with subscription/paid is classic isn't out yet, so I don't want to pay for something so far out, yet I want to have everything ready when it does launch so free but harder to use may be better as I have time to get things figured out using sub 20 characters on bfa trial accounts. Is ISboxer the only way to be able to switch characters quickly and be able to still control the other characters without using a different set of assist macros? I was watching ISboxer setup video and they were using a wow addon rather than assist macros which was really cool.

    I'm a little late to the reply, but I had the tab open in my browser and I did want to just add a few things.

    It's as complex as you want to make it. At its core, ISBoxer replicates keystrokes and mouse clicks, as does any multiboxing software, but, on top of that basic functionality, you can manage your characters and teams with it, as well.

    ISBoxer still uses macros, it's just that they're just written out for you, assigned keys, and stored in the ISBoxer add-on, to make things simple.

    This is a non-trivial point. It's sort of hard to describe that ISBoxer can make more complex setups easier to deploy than single-team manual setups. Being able to edit macros for any character of a particular class and spec and then have ISBoxer just know which macros to publish based on your character selections is hugely useful as you can edit things outside of the (arguably tedious) in-game macro editing UI. It allows you to use advanced concepts like:

    Code:
    !if (character in "Monk" and character in "Healer") /cast [@targettarget][@{SLOT1}][] renewing mist
    This can be decoded to something like:
    If a character that received the keypress is a Monk, and
    If a character that received the keypress is also healing spec, then
    Try to cast renewing mist at my target's target, and if that doesn't exist,
    Try to cast renewing mist at the character in slot 1 of the published character set, and if that doesn't exist or fails,
    Try to cast renewing mist on the Monk healer that is casting it.

    Doing the above is possible in-game but having to go change those macros every time you rearrange a character set to add/change/rearrange characters is a yuge PITA. In ISBoxer, I just republish and either logout/login or /console reloadui and I'm off again.

    Thanks guys. I have decided to go with ISboxer. The ability to switch characters on the fly and still have the macros work (assisting the character I'm controlling) is too good to pass up. Add to that the ability to use videoFX to view portions if slave windows on the master is just gravy. I haven't downloaded it yet, just been watching videos and obsessively theorizing class specs and hotbar layouts. I'm not planning on using any castsequence macros/addons, I think I would get bored. I have no interest in modern wow, I may sub a few days early and use BFA to get things working.
