    Players - finding and joining games.

    You can view the Gamecalendar without signing up for a forum ID, but to be able to sign up for a game, you will need a Fantasy Grounds profile (free). In your profile please enter some key information:
    1. Under "Edit Profile" -> "Additional Information" enter you rough location - this will give GMs an idea of your time zone.
    2. Under "Edit Options" -> "Date & Time Options" enter your time zone - this will result in game times being adjusted to your time zone. This is very important as this convention spans the globe!
    3. Make sure your email address is correct ("Edit Email and Password" - this will ensure you get update emails regardng the convention and if someone has sent you a personal message. Also, ensure that emails from Fantasy Grounds are not being blocked as SPAM in your email client.


    Signing up for games:

    1. Go to the Gamecalendar page (link at the top of the page on the Fantasy Grounds website.
    2. All games should begin with _FGCon_2012 - so they should all be together at the top of the list. Note: Only games beginning with _FGCon_2012 are part of the FGCon - other games in the Gamecalendar are normal Fantasy Grounds campaigns and not part of the con. If you are confused about the time (and we all are with different timezones) wbcreighton has put this really handy spreadsheet together:
      https://docs.google.com/a/shadowlodg...jWHZMOGc#gid=0
    3. Check through the games - click on the campaign name, read the game description and make sure the time is good for you, the type of Fantast Grounds license you need is OK, you understand the language the game will be ran in etc. and if you would like to register for a game click on the "Apply as player" link in the bottom right. The GM will have to approve you for full access to the game entry - extra details, messages specific to the game, etc..


    If you have any questions regarding a specific game please PM the gm. Copy their name and then go to your profile ("Community" -> "Profile") ad select "Send a new message" on the left and enter the GM name from the calendar entry - send your question...

    Communication note: If you join a game which is voice please make sure that you install the Teamspeak client and get it configured well before the game starts - info here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums...d.php?p=127693 Also, please get a headset with built in mic - external speakers and microphone result in feedback for the other players and makes it very hard to game properly (even if you use push-to-talk) so please make sure you have a headset with built in mic - thanks! More details on this will be provided soon in another thread.

    Hopefully Doug will be sorting that out soon.

    You can sort by Last GM Activity in the meantime. Just click the column title at the top. They should be at the top or very close to it.

    True. I was just thinking of it as a temporary work around until the sorting gets changed.

    Doug has just made the change to the Gamecalendar - so we can see all of the FG con games at the top of the list.

    As long as GMs use the naming convention correctly - reminder to GMs, please use the following format for the "campaign" name:
    _FGCon_2012 <day> <time + timezone> <name>
    Where:
    • _FGCon_2012 - this is the prefix used to identify an FG Con game and makes sure it will appear at the top of the list - please make sure you use this exactly, including the preceding underscore.
    • <day> is Friday, Saturday or Sunday
    • <time + timezone> The time the game will start
    • <name> The name of the game you will run.

    Where are the players???

    We now have 11 sessions listed in the GamesCalendar, but few players signed up for any games.

    If you have any questions about the FGCon as a whole please post in the forums - if you have a question specific to a game on the calendar please PM the GM direct.

    I'm assuming this would break the Game Calendar, but I'll ask anyway: At the moment, someone must be registered in order to see the games in the Calendar. With the number of spam schemes there are out there, new players may be hesitant to doing a full sign-up until they've been sold on the idea. Is there any way to show the FGCON games in the calendar (or even all the games) without requiring registration?
