No. If anyone were to dual box on this server they'd have to use 2 PCs and VPN for minimal risk. "Alt-tabbing" refers to alt-tab jumping. I explained the mechanics of it in a previous post, as well as a few other Titanium client oddities. I bolded the most relevant bit.

Not speed-hacking, just manipulating frame rates. Basically a few things are determined by your frame rate in this game, most notably levitate mechanics, mouse-turn speed, how high you jump out of water, and fall speed. The higher your FPS, the slower you fall, slower you turn, and the slower you lose height while levitating. When you jump, you get a boost straight ahead of your character. AFAIK, you also lose forward speed the longer you are airborne. When you alt-tab out of the game, your FPS in the client drops pretty low.

The fabled alt-tab jump works by jumping to gain forward speed, alt tab out while airborne to fall faster to minimize de-acceleration, then tab back in before you land to continue running at full speed.

You can also manipulate your frame rate to prevent fall damage (if you click levitate while airborne at around 100fps, you can actually get stuck in the air for a bit), as well as being able to stay levitated very high in the air without falling much. Frame-rate manipulation can be used to climb walls while levitating through cleverly timed alt tabs.

I think most of the above is common knowledge to people who have played on various titanium or pre-titanium EQ clients though.

Ok that makes sense thanks for clearing that up. First time I had seen the term used in regards to FTE racing. I did know about it being used for wall climbing and have done that myself way back in the day to backdoor to Lady Vox in permafrost.

LOL JUST LOL
I lived it. I put in silly tracking/racing hours for quite a long time. Among the highest in my guild. This isn't some koolaid coming from a name you don't know.

The guilds I mentioned simply didn't show up.

Oh they'd show up on the forums. They talk like they compete, here. They want a voice at raid rules discussions. But they don't show up.

Instancing is lame.

Vanguard perfected this with Lockout timers.

The only thing that was lame about Classic was the blocking of content.

Maybe a feature the staff is working on? But who knows. Some people love the oppression heh.

Alt tab jumping. It's the practice of hitting jump, then clicking out of your EQ window to massively drop your frame rate instantly, allowing your character to jump further than should be possible. Since player characters move faster while airborne from the jump. Competent alt tab jumpers will gain an advantage in foot races against those that just strafe run or run normally.

At least I'm pretty sure that's how it works.
Is there no limit to what these manchildren will do to gain an advantage over others to get the pixels? My god, how pathetic one must be to figure out shit like this.

Unfortunately they had people who cared about designing a solution to instances while maintaining an open world.

Good news? Not entirely free to speak on it but I believe the VG emu will eventually be quite operational in another years time it could hit beta.

Hah.

That ship sailed at least two years ago. Threads like this one simply prove the amount of mental illness present in our community.

Seriously, how in the blue fuck can adults act like this, look themselves in the mirror and say, "Tsk! Doin' good man! Doin' gooood."
