    So, the problem is following - Some games require you to be a citizen of a particular country however you can bypass this by using a proxy (as far as my understanding goes). The problem is that apparently these proxy hacks/ports (I'm not sure of the proper name) are often malicious software. So, how does one know if the proxy software is any good and without harmful ingredients?

    My scenario is about a MMORPG called Vindictus which has an IP ban on anything apart from Continental America (and I'm obviously European). Many people have suggested to use proxy software to bypass this but I'm rather confused as to what I should use. Some guy suggested this one (after a really quick google search) - http://www.hotspotshield.com/
    However, since I have no experience with either proxy software or this particular program, I have no idea whether it's genuine or one of the hacker attempts.

    Hotspotshield is legit.

    EDIT: Hey, but IMO, if this is a browser game, foxyproxy. Fast and easy transition. Yours truly uses it for shady stuff, etc.

    Nah. It's not a browser game :(
    But if you say hotspotshield is legit then I shall believe you.

    It depends on the protocol that Vindictus uses but you could potentially use Tor. I've used a lot of proxies from hidemyass.com and they seem to be fine provide you pick a fast one but I've only used them for interwebz stuff.

    If you know of a socks4/5 proxy in the USA (there are a few on hidemyass) you should be able to use SocksCap to play. Unfortunately SocksCap stopped being distributed by the original author some time ago and I can't find a good download link for it and I'm unsure about the one provided on the tutorial. I'd scan it if you decide to go that route.

    Hotspot Shield didn't work (unfortunately).
    Gonna try to use streetfighter's methods.

    I am huge fan of Tor as well, however most websites that are online games won't exactly accept Tor as coming from a specific country.

    I am not a fan of SocksCap as I like to chain proxies, not use just one. That is not a issue in this implementation, so carry on!

    Ahh, Tor doesn't appear to work either (or maybe it's my faulty hands).
    Haven't tried SocksCap yet.
    What about 'Proxifier'? Legit or not?
    Since I've found 3 tutorials that say you can play if you use proxifier.

    So I was right about Tor :)!

    SocksCap will be much easier for you to configure that Proxifier, however, I actually use Proxifier, as it has support for chaining proxies! :D

    Nexon EU are widely regarded as.. well.. shit.
    Anyway, I got it working through Proxifier.
    Here's a video for anyone interested - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WshQ6rfcdSY

    However, thanks for everyone's support.

    The video tells you everything you need.
    And I found the proxies in that site in his comment. Few of the first didn't work but after a few, one did.
