This is a modified version of Synergy 1.3.1 that features Keyboard Broadcasting support, allowing it to be used as a "Multi Boxing" solution when playing games like World of Warcraft. The download archive has windows binaries only.
There is no installation, there are three .exe files (GUI, client, server). Basic functionality works, GUI works, connecting clients via the network works, basic operation is functional.
What does not
Broadcasting support; the broadcast hotkey does not appear to work, a line is displayed in the wine output that the API call is a stub:
fixme:keyboard:RegisterHotKey ((nil),1,0x00000000,145): stub
fixme:winstation:OpenInputDesktop (1,1,4000000a): stub
What was not tested
Only basic operation tested, no prolonged tests.
The official version of Synergy compiles natively under linux, but the Keyboard Broadcasting version does not and has windows only binaries. Wine does not currently support this version, since the keyboard broadcasting API-call is not implemented in wine.
