    It's as ok as any other post november 2020 solution. It won't shield you if you RMT or otherwise do stuff that will get you banned with any software or without any software at all, but otherwise is afaik the most compliant, safest (least intrusive, no hooks, doesn't run as admin, etc...) software solution by design. Otherwise there are many threads about hardware boxing too.

    Edit: it won't solve the OP's request though which seems to be multi seat single PC and not multiboxing

    Circling back on this thread as someone (maybe Unknown ;-) ) pointed me in the direction of software for Microsoft OSes that may create virtual monitor devices at the OS level that could maybe eliminate the need for multiple extra monitors/cables and/or multi-input-viewers and/or multi-input-montitors...

    I don't know if any multiboxers have tried any of these solutions and the comments are already getting buried in the continuous stream of disjunctive multi-topic consciousness that is Discord so I though I would come post these links to a Forum thread before they are lost for me..

    If anyone tries these and they actually create virtual monitors at the Operating System level please report back:

    Other alternatives that may be do something similar (not sure if any actually create monitor devices at the windows OS level):

    Also the following is a nice Aster related config screen that may help with people conceptually seeing how resources are allocated to multiple Multiseat Desktops on a single PC:

    it's not clear what any of these do that would help? (vs existing software for boxing)

    Can you give an example of how that would be used? (I guess maybe the make 4 virtual monitors out of 1 and using these 4 with 4 aster seats?)

    My understanding is that a Multiseat Desktop Configuration requires, at the OS level, multiple monitor devices... I am not sure if any VM solutions can bind VM video consoles to specific monitor devices but if any support that it could help there as well...

    To date most approaches I have seen have involved putting the main client (like the Tank) on the primary desktop outputting to a primary monitor and then doing the 4 other desktops' video outputs to a 4+ port multiviewer to a 2nd physical montior to give you the 5+box via 1PC and 2 physical monitors. That means you need at least a 2nd physical monitor, physical multiviewer, & 8 extra physical video cables...

    If you can carve up a single 4K or 8K physical monitor into multiple virtual monitors (& especially if you can change those layouts if/as needed) you could get a hardware input broadcast solution all from a single PC with a single large monitor if you wanted. That could well be the simplest/cheapest way to get hardware input boxing solution (single copy of windows, single wow install, single monitor, etc)... Even if you wanted to use 2+ monitors, having the ability to carve up a physical monitor at the OS level virtually could allow you to do it without the extra physical cables and multiviewer in the middle...

    I am not sure if any of the solutions actually create virtual monitors at the OS level but if they do that could allow some creative options which is why I brought them up and asked if anyone has tried them...
