Just downloaded the demo today.

Sure I'll test drive the program with you. I'm at eastern standard time but without daylight savings. I live in Puerto Rico. Feel free to call me at my mobile so we can coordinate in real time. Or email me your phone and I'll call you if you live inside the US.

Looking forward to seeing if this goodlooking peice of software is practical.

Anybody reading this thread and in a similar timezone is welcome to call to see if can get some games together. I'm thinking a weekly sessions after we learn the program.

Here's hopin'

You can of course always testdrive on your own.

You first start FG as as gamemaster.

Then you start another instance of FG and connect as a player to IP address (thatīs your localhost address). Now you can test both the GM functionality as well as the player functionality. Worked for me greatly.

Maybe this is a good tip to mention in the quick tut of the demo?

Works great! I cannot belive it did not occur to me to open the same program a couple of times. The only thing left for me to figure out is how the combat works. Thanks for the advice!
