    Now this is what I'd like to see while purchasing armor!

    Ya-hey! No more creating PvP characters to see only a few 1k armors! I wish ANet approves of this and this doesn't modify anything but graphics...

    There have been threads about this on guru and (I think) here. No conclusive decision whether it is safe or not.

    Cool app, be nice if we could get confirmation that it was not bad.

    No source code posted anywhere?

    Oh well, this is why I have secondary accounts to test with.
    ..The GWCamUnlocker is pretty damn awesome, actually.

    The app was released a month ago and I've been lurking this site actively since the end of June and I haven't seen a thread 'bout this here yet. On Guru there is a thread of this, though.

    I tried the GWDressUp and haven't been banned yet. I do not know of any server-side alterations it may make but all the effects I've seen have been client-side only and not visible to anyone else. I asked a friend if he can see my armor changing and he said no, he only sees the armor I wore before I started messing around with GWDU.

    There is also this month-old thread on guildwars.com where we can see Gaile Gray and the folks answering some but not all questions.

    When the **** did GW get official forums?

    edit: nvm it's just a support forum. Thought it was a fully-fledged thing like Blizzard's Warcraft forums.

    I think it's more like 2 months (seems longer to me for some reason), but yes, you're right, no threads here I can find.

    I was less concerned about it being a program they'd ban you over (it's just looks that only show up on your screen as you said) than I am worried about trojans or other malicious code. Argos' gwEstimator is a very, very handy tool for price checks, but I get a bit antsy about downloading 3rd party programs where account hacking is a problem.

    And of course, just because they don't ban you right away doesn't mean they won't ban you 2 months or a year from now, so that's not really a good test unfortunately.

    i don't know for sure but i do think it is add-ware, i tried it for a bit and then closed it to surf a bit.
    i immediately got some kind of unwanted security program installed in my computer, i restarted my pc before it could do anything but it's better to avoid this program.
