Just a reminder that using any 3rd party programs to give you an advantage in SoM is against the rules and will result in a ban. It can also be a huge security risk to you as many of these problems can also provide a back door to your computer or act as a keylogger stealing your passwords not only for SoM but anything else that requires a login, such as online banking.

Would you say a program that lets you use a controller to play also be against the rules?

I was going to post some comment about how Scorpio said to give you an advantage and how using a controller is fairly crippling, but then I remembered Mages don't have to manage their inventory at all as far as gear goes.

Curious, is OSK included in this? I recall Planes being banned and then unbanned for using it (to print screen)

I can't imagine OSK being illegal in the day and age of tablet gaming.. I personally have played on a tablet for ever and the only keyboard option on the unit is an on-screen simulation.

I'm referring to anything that gives an unfair advantage such as an automated bot or auto click program

You are right, it was blocked at one point. The system that Scorpio had in place at the time incorrectly identified it as a bot. Once he rectified that issue, it was allowed again.
