    Yes. You will have to copy your campaign data between your computers. Do not use a synchronized folder or location to do this (i.e. DropBox, OneDrive, GoogleDrive, etc). You will not be able to connect to a hosted session unless you remove the license key from the player client.

    Welcome to the forums Sam_Robs

    As LordEntrails mentions, you can do this - but you have to manually copy the data from the data directory on one computer to another. Info on file locations here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/...File_Locations

    The license that you have is your license. Smiteworks allow you to install on another computer, to allow you to do prep on one computer and run on another. The requirement is that you only use one installation at a time.

    @LordEntrails mentions, "Do not use a synchronized folder" ... why not? ... it seems like the perfect use for this?

    Yes. However, for some reason, most synchronization software seems to eventually cause corruption in the campaign save files. We haven’t found any particular reason why this happens; since the save files are written in a single burst and locked while writing by the FG client. So, this the warning to prevent data loss.

    Personally, I use a timed backup that runs every day at 4am.

    That's a great use of a backup. I'll be interested to see if we see the same corruption issue on remote folders when FGU launches.

    Yes. Just copy the campaign folder from one computer and paste into the same location on the other. You could use a cloud based solution such as Dropbox, or simply email the zipped up file depending on size etc.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea here https://www.fantasygrounds.com/featu...rerequests.php
