How to play Pathfinder RPG with Fantasy Grounds.

What you need to play. (Also see a similar guide here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showpost.php?p=105354&postcount=67).)

Only for GMs:
First you need a Full or Ultimate license of FG.
Then you need to download d20_JPG (down near the bottom of the Downloads page) and place it in the 'rulesets' folder (locate to the Application Data folder from the FG Start Menu group).
Download the Pathfinder extension 'PathfinderVer8.3.ext' by Madman found here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14552) and place it in the 'extensions' folder.

GMs and players:
Optional (will give you access to the basic rules and feats/spells from CRB/APG within FG).
Download Pathfinder rules module here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14552) and/or the modules found here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showpost.php?p=103422&postcount=44) and here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showpost.php?p=103523&postcount=51) and unzip them into your 'modules' folder.

EDIT: If you are daring and use the Test version of Fantasy Grounds you can find an extension for the new 3.5E here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14775).
You will also need to edit the above modules to accept 3.5E as a ruleset for them to show up in Test Mode (make a copy and change to <ruleset>3.5E</ruleset> in the definition.xml within the module)
Pathfinder support is now being developed in the test version of 3.5E, it works great.
