Wow that dupe fix, I wonder how much currency was made using that.
None. You could only duplicate items that can be used with Skin Transfer. And you also needed a mirror to do it which is not exactly common.
All it really did was double the effectiveness of a mirror. Also you would have needed to skin transfer the item back inside another one every time before you log out, otherwise the dupe detector will destroy it.

We'll get the mousewheel zoom thing fixed in the "b" patch. Do the Page Up/Down keys still work?
