Yayaya NDA blablabla but it's continuous footage and we're in a drought!

Is it against the ARR ToS? Or just with key and mouse broadcasting?

Do we know if ARR will have any hack protection?

Well, I only have an i-5 3550 and a 460 GTX (but a fairly tightly tuned system) and was able to tri-box FFXI and play beta at the same time without anything dipping below 60 FPS (except for parts of Whitegate in FFXI and Ul'dah was around 50-55). Both games were running with most bells and whistles (FFXI instances were 1280 x 720, FFXIV 1920 x 1080) with the exception of shadows. Ironically the worst hits would happen in FFXI over FFXIV (shoddy porting + bard songs) but they'd be a few seconds at most.

It's definitely doable, but like he stated in the video he offloaded the other instances onto the second SLI/Crossfire card and dedicated the main instance to the first. FFXIV's engine seems so well designed now (that's not something you'd ever hear from 1.0...) that I could easily see such setups. All you'd have to do would be to just lower the resolution a bit on the master and cut down on some effects.

I like how the multiboxing guy complains about dying a lot.

Was nice to see video of the game that I hadn't otherwise watched over and over. I guess it was easier to have 4 THM's than have Pug, thm and Glad. He would have had to change the macro sets.
