    fraps was recommended, and i dont think you could compete using off screen footage vs everyoone else using ingame recording.

    as for the parser argument, you aren't giving yourself a distinct advantage over other players. you are merely recording data. there is no distinct difference between someone who parses and someone who doesn't, other than knowledge on how you performed in a fight.

    The only thing is I'm unsure if you can run the parser without windower, if you can I'd say give it a look. If you can't and you require windower then it's up to you. They do do a windower lite, which doesn't have any of the plugins or features, but as far as your philosophy it is a 3rd party tool, and although you choose not to make it affect your game play, there option is there, I can understand if you didn't take it.

    Not saying I run windower, it'd be dumb to admit the use of 3rd party tools on the official forum >.>. Assume everything above was made on the assumptions of "If we used XYZ we could do ABC".

    In the end, what matters is your conscience and that only. If you think you have an unfair advantage over others and that bothers you, then don't use it. If you don't mind an unfair advantage, as long as it's not competitive (claimbots, fleehacks, wallhacks, etc.), then that's ok too. If you don't mind an unfair advantage at all, that's your choice as well. Just need to make up your mind about what kind of person you want to be, the rules rarely matter. Breaking rules is not necessarily bad, they're not an universal doctrine for good behaviour, they're just an approximation proposed by some SE employees. You can follow the rules and still be a dick and you can break them and still be a good person. Law doesn't equal justice and it never did. You can follow rules if you agree with them, but if you blindly follow them, then you missed the point.

    Also the reason third party tools are against ToS is because people were using scripts and we asked SE to ban bot use. Know what they did? They banned any and everything just to shut us up. True story. Ask anyone who's been around for a while what the Special Task Force Unit that was formed (in the same announcement mind you) has done and how their stance on windower use has changed over time.

    Yea, it's more like a buried knowledge than a new discovery.

    Probably if people remember about "which katana to main-hand on NIN? Senjuinrikio or Fudo?" that were asked numerous time to the point people went /facepalm or notto dis sitto ageen whenever the question was asked, you know how people take it as a general knowledge back in that day.

    If you are going to carp on RNG's for something, why not use the old standby, "Quit using cheap ammo!". You're more likely to see a RNG using Demon arrows than a RNG usng Jupiters staff.
    On Quetz and on Carbuncle I've seen numerous people use Jupiters Staff and they tell me I'm wrong when I try explain to them that the Crit incrase Crit only applies to the main weapon. Some people just don't want to learn.
