I've been doing a ludicrous amount of research on these forums lately about xrumer -- obviously, as the price tag is so high (and the near-requirement of a dedicated server adds so much more on top of that), one wants to know everything they can about it before buying. One of the things that seems to be repeated over and over again is that xrumer is incredibly complex -- with a VERY HIGH learning curve -- impossible for newbs to understand and implement. Training videos cost $xxx, full tutorials nonexistent (or hidden in the VIP section which I can't access). You need a comprehensive xas_AI.txt file, or hours and hours of teaching it yourself (which is billed as a monstrously difficult task), before you can even approach double-digit success rates. My question is -- is it REALLY that difficult to understand? Obviously a beginner will be nowhere near as effective as an expert who's logged hundreds of hours tweaking, but the general sentiment seems to be that new users will be almost hopelessly lost. I downloaded the help file from botmasterlabs.net (although for version 5) and read through it -- the interface seems logical and all the options seem to make sense. Is all the scary rhetoric just to keep out potential competition? Or to save the common idiot his $600? Or is there actually a huge disconnect between understanding the software and understanding how to make the software work?
