1. Beginner's Guide

a. Multiboxing Definition

The basic definition of multiboxing in MMORPG games, is when one single person is controlling more than one characters at the same time. In other words, imagine having a dps character and a healer character always behind you, keeping you alive, while you set out on your quests in the world of your favorite game. Better yet, imagine controlling an entire team of your own to help you go through the hardest of endeavors. Such a thing can be achieved by the use of a software which can broadcast your key presses and mouse clicks to the rest of your team while yourself are only directly controlling your main character.

b. Multiboxing Software

A multiboxing software, like Lidc, is designed to help you in controlling your team in a way that makes your gaming experience smooth and enjoyable. The way this works, is that Lidc offers you the ability to define a set of keys or key combinations that will be sent to the rest of your team, while you are only directly controlling your main character and without having to switch to their game windows. You should then bind those keys or key combinations to character abilities or macros within your game so that they will be activated when you press them on your keyboard. Some of the usual bindings you will want to assign to your characters include macros to follow your main character, assist your main character and cast offensive abilities or target team members and cast healing abilities.

While key and mouse broadcasting is the minimum functionality you will require to sucessfully multibox a team of characters, you will find that Lidc also offers a rich variety of features that will prove very useful in managing and controlling your team. These features include a launcher that can automatically fill in your account information, a layout designer to allow you to easily position your character's game windows on your screen and many hotkeys so that you can control Lidc right from within the game window ensuring uninterrupted and smooth playing experience.

c. Safe To Use

Lidc does not alter, affect or interfere with your game in any way and it is not considered a hack nor a bot. Lidc places itself between the game and the operating system and uses the functionality provided by the operating system, in order to provide you with the tools you need to duplicate your input across multiple clients. However, the actual action of multiboxing is subject to the game server rules and therefore we strongly recommend that you read the rules laid out by your server to make sure multiboxing is allowed in your case.

d. Basic Setup

This guide will show you the minimum amount of steps you need to follow to start using Lidc.
It is meant to be used as a startup guide if you are a new user.

- First, navigate to the Characters Page. This is where you create and manage your characters.

Click on the Add button to add a new character. Click in the name field and enter a name for this character. Click on the + icon next to the game list and provide a name and the executable path of your game. This game will be added to your games list and will be available when creating more characters. Click on OK and repeat this process for as many characters as you wish.

- Next, navigate to the Input Page. This is where you define the keys you would like to broadcast while multiboxing.

The first time you run Lidc, the predefined key list called "All Keys" will be pre-selected for you, which means that all keyboard and mouse keys will be broadcast to all clients. To define your own set of keys, click on the key lists drop down list at the top and select the "User Defined" key list. Click inside the input box Enter key combination here at the bottom left of this page and press any key or key combinations you would like to broadcast. Repeat this process for all the keys you would like to broadcast during your play.

Thats all! You are setup and ready to play!

Navigate back to the Characters Page, click on the Run button and then click on any character from the menu in order to launch them. To start broadcasting, click on the Start button and select between Keys and Mouse to start broadcasting your defined keys.

Finally, make sure you bind the keys and key combinations you added in the Input Page, to character abilities or macros within your game, so that they may be activated when you press those keys or key combinations on your keyboard.

Have fun!

4. Layout Page - Edit Layout

The Edit Layout Panel is where you can create and manage your layouts. A layout defines the position, size and monitor of your game clients on your screen. You may create multiple layouts and switch between them at any time during your play. Besides the basic functionality, the designer also includes Multiple Monitor support, a Grid view to help you place your clients accurately, and Picture in Picture (PiP) capabilities that allows you to view a client within another game client.

a. Edit with Designer

Access the Layout Designer by clicking on the Edit with Designer button on the Layouts Page.

Click on the + icon and provide a name for your new layout or select any of the existing layouts to modify it.

Select a character from the Available Characters dropdown list and click on the left arrow to add it in the layout.

Drag or resize the added character window in the design area to place it at the desired position and size. Repeat this for the characters you wish to include in this layout.

To remove a character, select it in the Selection Settings dropdown list and click on the x icon.

Click on the Save button to save your changes.

The Layout Designer also offers the following options to aid in designing your layout:

- Monitor

This setting will be enabled if more than one monitors is detected on your computer. Select the monitor you wish to modify to view it in the design area.

- Sync Running Clients

When this setting is enabled, any characters you reposition or resize in the design area will also cause their respective clients to transform automatically provided they are already running.

- Grid

Enable this setting to show a grid in the design area to help you align your clients more accurately. You may also enable the Snap to Grid setting which will cause the edges of the clients to automatically snap on the grid corners while you resize your characters.

- Exclude Windows Taskbar

Enable this setting to exclude the windows taskbar from the design area. The effect of this setting enabled you to place a client all the way to the bottom of the design area without having it cover the windows taskbar when running.

- Remove Borders

Enable this setting to remove the caption bar and non-client area of the game windows included in this layout.

- Selection Settings

The selection settings include a dropdown list of all characters included in this layout and numeric fields that represent the client's position on the screen as well as numeric fields representing the client's width and height. You may select any character in the dropdown list and use the numeric fields to adjust its position and size more accurately.

- Picture in Picture

This setting provides the capability to view a character's client within another character's client. Select the character you wish to be embedded within the larger client and place it well within the bounds of that larger client. Enable the Picture in Picture setting and specify the bigger client's name in the dropdown list. 

- Activate PiP Clients

Never: The embedded clients will never activate or receive focus.

Clicked: The embedded clients will activate when you click inside their window effectively giving you control of the embedded character. Click outside of the embedded client window to pass control back to the main character.

Hovered: The embedded clients will activate when the mouse cursor enters their window effectively giving you control of the embedded character. Hover your mouse cursor outside of the embedde client window to pass control back to the main character.

b. Edit in Full Screen

Use the Edit in Full Screen feature to create or modify a layout directly on your screen and view your clients at their real size while designing your layout. Any already running characters will use their live client window instead of the game preview image allowing you to transform your characters in real time.

The Layout Toolkit provides the same functionality as the Layout Designer. Please read the Edit with Designer section for detailed instructions.

6. Input Page - Keys

The Keys Panel is where you define the Keys and Mouse buttons that you would like to broadcast during your play. Each key or key combination can also be assigned with options like Enable Mouse Broadcasting and three types of RemappingSimple, Round Robin and By Active Character. Additionally, you may create Multiple Key Lists and switch between them at any time allowing you to setup different button configurations to fit your needs in different game play scenarios. To access the key options, select a key or key combination in the key list and click on the options button.

a. Key List

The key list defines the key and key combinations that will be broadcast across your clients during your play.

When the All Keys list is selected, all keyboard and mouse keys will be broadcast including the Ctrl, Shit and Alt modifiers.
Please note that hotkeys defined in the software take precedence in this case.

Click inside the input box at the bottom of the key list and press any key or key combination you wish to broadcast. The key will be then added in the list or it will be automatically selected if it already exists. You may also add mouse buttons in the same manner but keep in mind that mouse left and right buttons will be broadcast only when mouse broadcasting is on, while any other mouse buttons will be treated as normal keys.

b. Key List - Add

Initially, you will find the All Keys and User Defined key lists being already created for you but you may add additional key lists if you wish to switch between multiple key configurations during your play.

To do so, click on the + icon and provide a unique name for your new key list. You may then proceed to add any keys or key combinations to this list in the normal manner as described in the Key List section. To switch between key lists, select the desired list in the drop down list to activate it.

c. Key List - Remove

To remove a key list, select it in the drop down list and click on the x icon.

d. Options - Start Mouse Broadcasting

Enable this setting to force this key or key combination to automatically turn mouse broadcasting on. This effect is additional to the broadcasting of the key and is particularly useful when the key is activating an ability that requires targeting using the mouse. It is recommended that you combine this with the Turn Mouse Off on Left Click option in the Mouse and Activation Panel if you are normally playing with mouse broadcasting set to off and need to enable it only for specific abilities.

e. Options - Remap

Remapping allows you to broadcast different keys or key combinations to your clients than the one you are actually pressing on your keyboard. There are various practical applications for this feature. One example is being able to assign complicated key combinations to abilities in game for a character while at the same time being able to activate them with easier key combinations while multiboxing. Another example is being able to remap a single key into broadcasting different movement directions to your slave clients allowing you to create cool team formations in game.

To enable remapping for this key enable the Remap setting in the Options dialog. You may then choose between three types of remapping: Simple, Round Robin and By Active Character.

f. Options - Remap Simple

Simple remapping allows you to broadcast a different key or key combination to each of your clients when pressing the remapped key.

Click inside any cell in the Keys column and press the key or key combination you would like to broadcast on your keyboard. The character displayed in that row will then receive your new key or key combination when you press the remapped key on your keyboard. An empty cell means that the displayed character in that row will receive your key press normally with no remapping performed. To remove a remap, click the cell you want to clear and click on the clear button.

g. Options - Remap Round Robin

Round Robin remapping works like simple remapping with the difference that each time you press your remapped key, the keys to be broadcasted to your clients will be derived from the next round. When the last round is reached, remapping will reset back to the first round and continue from there, thus creating a loop. This features allows you to create ability rotations for your characters with the use of a single button. You may use as many rounds as you wish for your rotations.

h. Options - Remap By Active Character

Remapping By Active Character works like simple remapping with the difference that the column that defines the keys to be broadcasted depend on the character you are controlling at the time. So for example, any keys you define on the first column will be used when you are controlling the first character, the keys of the second column will be used when controlling the second character and so on. This feature is mostly useful when your gameplay involves switching main control between your characters while another fun application would be the ability to switch team formations in game having a different character in the center each time.

i. Options - Remap Hotkeys

The remap hotkeys Toggle Remapping, Toggle Round Robin and Toggle By Active Character, allow you to turn remapping on and off at any time during your play with the press of a single key or key combination. When remapping is toggled off, the remapped key will be broadcasted normally ignoring any remap assignments it may be given. Additionally, you may configure more than one remapping types for a single key and switch between them using their respective hotkey. You may also reset the round robin rotation at any time using the Reset Round Robin hotkey.

7. Input Page - Mouse & Activation

The Mouse & Activation Panel includes settings that may be useful during your play depending on your playstyle and needs. Please go through their description for further information.

a. Show Cursor on all Clients

Enable this setting to create a visible cursor for all clients while mouse broadcasting.

This option creates a fake cursor for each client window that helps you track the exact location of the mouse while mouse broadcasting. Please note that mouse will always be broadcasted when its turned on and does not depend on this option. This is only a visual aid.

b. Keep Focus when Switching

Enable this setting to maintain focus to your current client when using a fast switch hotkey.

An active client is the one that has current focus and thus the one you are controlling at the time. At any point you may use another client's fast switch hotkey, defined under the character settings, in order to switch to that client. Enable this setting to prevent focus transfer and maintain control of your current client. If this setting is disabled, the involved clients will switch and control will be transferred to the switched client.

c. Activate Client on Hover

Enable this setting to automatically pass focus to another client when hovering over its window.

An active client is the one that has current focus and thus the one you are controlling at the time. When using a layout with split windows, you may wish, at any time, to take control of the client of another character by moving your mouse over its window. Enable this setting to cauuse the character to receive focus automatically and consequently give you immediate control, as soon as you hover your mouse cursor over that client. If this setting is disabled, you will need to click over the other client's window in order to pass control to the character of that client.

d. Turn Mouse Off on Left Click

Enable this setting to turn mouse broadcasting off every time you left click inside a client's window.

This setting is particulary useful if you are usually playing with mouse broadcasting turned off but need to enable it occasionally to perform skills that require mouse input. In this case you may turn mouse broadcasting on at any time, perform your skill and have it automatically turn off as soon as you click inside the client area. Additionally, you may combine this setting with the Start Mouse Broadcasting setting under key options by enabling it for the the key that activates the skill that requires mouse input. The combination of these settings relieves you from having to toggle mouse broadcasting on and off every time you wish to use a skill that requires mouse input.

e. Prevent Left + Right Click

Enable this setting to prevent the left and right mouse buttons to be broadcasted simultaneous to your clients.

This setting is useful if you have added both the left and right mouse buttons to your key list under the Input Page and are playing with mouse broadcasting turned on. Some games translate the simultaneous pressing of both the left and right mouse buttons as forward movement and if broadcasted may cause your slave characters to move out of control.

f. Prevent Mouse Drag

Enable this setting to prevent mouse movement broadcasting when the left or right mouse button is pressed.

Mouse dragging is defined as moving the mouse while holding the left or right mouse button pressed. Such action is usually required when you need to move interface object across your game screen or to rotate the camera. If you find having issues when mouse dragging, like rapid camera rotation, please enable this option.

8. Input Page - Hotkeys

The Hotkeys Panel allows you to define keys or key combinations in order to control certain events in the software without having to switch back to the software's window.

a. Toggle Broadcasting

This hotkey, when pressed,  will toggle both Keys and Mouse broadcasting to on or off.

b. Enable Broadcasting

This hotkey, when pressed, will turn both Keys and Mouse broadcasting always to on.

c. Toggle Keys

This hotkey, when pressed, will toggle only Keys broadcasting to on or off.

d. Toggle Mouse

This hotkey, when pressed, will toggle only Mouse broadcasting to on or off.

e. Shutdown All Clients

This hotkey, when pressed, will immediately close all client windows.

This hotkey is meant to be used for emergency situations, when for whatever reasons, you wish to close all your game windows immediately.

You may exclude certain characters from this function by enabling the Exclude from Shutdown setting under character settings.

f. Toggle Lidc Window

This hotkey, when pressed, will show or hide the Lidc program window.

h. Switch to Hovered Client

This hotkey, when pressed, will cause a switch between the currently active client and the client whose window is under the mouse cursor at the time. If the cursor is above the currently active client, then pressing this hotkey, will cause a switch to the next client.

Additionally, if you have the settings Activate Client on Hotkey or Activate Client on Hover under the Mouse & Activation Panel enabled, then pressing this hotkey repeatedly, will cause a switching loop between all your running characters.

14. Appendix - Cool Tips

a. Area of Effect (AoE)

In some cases, a particular character ability, may require you to point to a target area within the game by moving your mouse to the desired location and clicking. For such ability, you will require that the cursor moves concurrently for all your characters and that all your characters can click at the same time to that location. To do this with Lidc, you need to turn mouse broadcasting on which also broadcasts mouse movement and make sure you have added Left Click in your Keys list under the Input page.

However, if having to toggle mouse broadcasting every time you wish to use such ability, turns out to be a bit inconvinient here is a trick you can do with Lidc:

- Navigate to the Input Page, find the key that activates the AoE ability in your key list, select it, click on Options and within the Options dialog, enable the setting called Start Mouse Broadcasting. This setting will cause mouse broadcasting to be turned on every time you press that key on your keyboard.

- Under the Input Page, within the Mouse & Activation panel, enable the setting called Turn Mouse Off on Left Click. This setting will cause mouse broadcasting to be turned off every time you left click with your mouse.

The combination of these two settings will allow you to use your mouse for AoE abilities without having to bother with turning mouse broadcasting on and off every time you wish to use such an ability.

b. Team Formations

You may have seen multiboxers creating cool shapes and formations with their characters at the press of a button and you would love to do the same. Good news, you can easily do that with Lidc by using Simple Key Remapping. Here is an example on how to create a diamond formation with five characters.

- Navigate to the Input Page and add the key you would like to use for formations in your key list.

- Make sure it is selected and click on Options.

- Enable the Remap setting and leave the remapping type to Simple for now.

- Go in game and find out which keys cause your characters to move forward, backward, strafe left and strafe right.

- In the grid below, leave the cell for the character that will at the center empty.

- Click inside the cell of each of the other characters and press the direction key you would like that character to move to.

Thats it! Go in game, place your characters on top of each other and press the key you configured for formations (keep it pressed).

In the same manner you can create other kind of formations, depending on how many characters you have and your imagination!

c. Fast Switching

While controlling one of your characters you may often wish to quickly switch to another character's window.

The most usual way to do this, is by assigning a Fast Switching Hotkey for each of your characters and then pressing that hotkey on your keyboard. However, if you find remembering too many hotkeys a bit incovinient, there is another trick you can do with Lidc.

- Navigate to the Input Page and assign a hotkey for Switch To Hovered Client.

Now you can use this Hotkey in two ways. The first one is, the obvious one, that you can hover your mouse over the client you wish to switch to and press that hotkey. The second way is that you may press that hotkey without hovering your mouse which will just cause a switch with the next character. Keep pressing that one hotkey to go around all your characters in a loop.

Additionaly, it is recommended that you enable the setting called Activate Client on Hotkey, in order to also activate the switching client and gain immediate control.

d. Game Settings

When running multiple clients at the same time, you may often need to use different in-game settings for each character. For example you might want to run you main character using the highest quality graphics settings and your slave characters using the lowest quality graphics settings to improve overall performance. There are some ways to achieve this but in many cases you end up using separate game folders which can prove a bit of a hassle to maintain. Not any more.

By using the Game Settings feature you may specify game settings and values for each of your characters and have those settings applied to your game every time you launch that character. Following is an example of how to use this feature playing World of Warcraft. The process though, is exactly the same for all supported games.

- First navigate to the Characters Tab and double click on the character you wish to edit.

- Make sure your game is selected in the games drop down list.

- Click on the Game Settigns icon (...) next to the Add Game icon (enabled only for supported games).

The settings you see on the Current Game Settings list, along with their respective values, are the settings that are currently defined in the game's configuration files. The list on the right side is where we will add the settings we wish to change for this individual character. Check the enable custom game settings checkbox to enable this feature for this character.

- Append Mode (recommended)

The Append Mode will retain all current game settings and only modify the settings you specify under Character Game Settings.

- Select the setting you wish to change in the Current Game Settings list and click on the Add Setting arrow (or double click) to add it in the Character Game Settings.

- Click inside the value field of that setting to change its value.

- If you wish for that setting to be entirely removed, select it and choose Action Delete in the radio below.

- If you wish to add a new setting that is not currently listed under Current Game Settings, click on the Add Custom Setting icon (plus icon) and input its name.

- To remove a settings from the Character Game Settings, select it and click on the Remove Setting icon at the bottom.

- To remove all current Character Game Settings, click on the Remove All Settings icon at the bottom.

- Replace Mode

Although some of the game settings are named in a way that makes them self-explenatory, it may not be always easy to figure out exactly which settings you need to use or change to achieve the required results. The replace mode can simplify that process for you by allowing you to replace the existing game settings entirely.

- Launch your game normally and use the in-game options to change all the settings you wish to use for a specific character.

- Exit your game as it is sometimes required for your changes to be saved into the configuration files.

- Open the Game Settings feature for your character and choose the Replace Settings mode.

- Click on the Replace All Character Settings arrow to copy all available settings to the Character Game Settings and click OK.

- Repeat the process for more characters.

- Configurations

The configurations section allows you to save your current choice of settings into a named configuration which you may then use to import into other character settings. A common use for that feature is when creating low quality graphics settings for one of your slave characters and then wish to use the same settings to the rest of your slave characters.

- New will create a new configuration using the current Character Game Settings

- Import will import all settings under the selected configuration into the current Character Game Settings.

- Update will update the selected configuration with the current Character Game Settings.

- Remove will remove the currently selected configuration.

c. Unsupported Games

Even if the game you wish to play is not included in our supported games list, you may still attempt to use Lidc with it by adding a game normally and choosing your game's client executable , or game launcher if that is required.

- Game using launcher

Check this setting if the selected executable is a game launcher which in turn launches the actual game window.

- Game Class

This setting indicates the window class name of the game window, and if provided, it will greatly increase the chances of getting your game recognized by the software during launch. To obtain this information you will need to use a tool that can display window class name information for all windows in your system. Such tools are available as freeware on the internet. If such an endeavor sounds a little bit too technical, please don't hesitate to contact support with your game information and we will do our best to obtain it for you.

- Keep game in foreground

Some games require to stay in the foreground in order to receive keyboard and mouse input. If you successfully launch your games and still can't broadcast input, try checking this setting and relaunch your game clients. Please note that this may result in hearing sound from all game clients simultaneously.
