I understand that these things have been discussed in multiple threads, but I couldn’t find a single thread that discusses all of these. I recently asked the leader of my guild if we should suggest to our guild member to use certain keywords for those of us that use 3rd party software to show an overlay of certain important messages that otherwise might be missed. Like AFK or invis dropping or buff is fading, etc. He replied that as a guild we cannot support any 3rd party software usage that may or may not violate the EULA. So I decided to search around on Google and the many forums that Everquest has inspired over the past 22 years and try to find an answer that clearly states what is and is not allowed. I found the following post. https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq/index.php?threads/how-can-i-tell-if-someone-is-hacking.3168/page-2#post-40243 In the post it says: “I'm not gonna create a list of approved programs, however, I will say that common sense is more than enough to tell if you are cheating. Parsing - Not cheating Item Collectors - Not cheating Program that has autofire button (and you are still in the general vicinity of the keyboard) - Not cheating Swimming on auto-run into a corner to raise up swimming - Not cheating Cheating - not allowed. If it's reasonable and not unfair it's not cheating. If it gives you an unfair advantage and allows you to do things that can't be normally done in game it's cheating.” Among other things, it does not mention anything about an overlay window as mentioned at the beginning of this post. It also doesn’t mention such software that allows you to play multiple accounts on the same screen, boxing, with hotkeys that allow for fast switching between screens and macros that automate some of the processes. The EULA can be found at: https://help.daybreakgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/230629007-What-are-the-EverQuest-Rules-of-Conduct- Item # 11 is the closest rule to something in regards to any of these questions. In layman's terms it means that once the information has been written on your computer, e.g., your log and INI files, Rule # 11 doesn’t apply. The reason I have not mentioned any specific software is not that I don’t have my favorites, but because I don’t want replies to be about one software versus another but about the scope of what a 3rd party software can do to help make the game more fun, more informative and easier to maintain for an everyday player like myself. If you have other specific 3rd party type software that I have not mentioned here feel free to reply. Keep in mind to describe what the software does not what the name of the software is. I’m not asking for personal opinions at first but rather an official reply from the Daybreak Company.
