    looking to test FG

    I am online at the moment and have started up FG. I tried to start a game recently and faced a barrage of issues with my connection speed. I have a faster connection now and would like to check out its abilites in relation to the older one with regards to FG. If anyone is online and does not mind testing it out for me, my ip is 68.63.239.185 or bold gate epic echo .

    Thanks for any help you provide.

    I'm on at the moment. It connected pretty quick.

    The speed was about 4-8kb/s. Not too slow but it downloaded 4,2mb of files. Took about 35min.

    Second connection was fast. No downloads and the portraits appeared too.

    Hmm.. I havent tried to connect to Tambryn, but that behaviour sounded like it was a custom ruleset. I remember when we switched rulesets in the campaign I'm in - then it took around 30 min to connect, as it downloaded the entire ruleset really slowly.

    Tambryn - do you have a custom/modified ruleset which some of the others does not? Like the Complete d20-SRD from Digital Adventures?

    Just a thought..

    Hmm, when I connected it did download a new ruleset but it took about 30 seconds on my cable connection.

    So. Is it better to use the standard ruleset given the download times involved with the customs. I don't mind using the standard set, the custom ones just encourage laziness.

    Not if you plan for it.

    I use Thore's excelent d20-srd rule set and its about 10 megs. I had all the players log in a day or so before the game started so they could download the rules. I also had them enter their character and play with the software then as well.

    Rule sets work great for getting everything the way you want it. Just make sure you allow time for the initial download and you'll be fine.

    Or if it's possible, distribute the ruleset to players beforehand. Put it on your website, send it as an e-mail attachment, through MSN/Skype, whatever.

    As one of Tam's players, I can vouch for his use of the D20-SRD, I told him it was great and he bought a copy.

    What's odd is he's also got some modified ruleset (d20-BUM) that, for some reason, overwrites the d20-SRD when players connect (I don't see any actual changes in the XML, but it re-pushes the d20-SRD each and every time).

    If anyone might know what's causing that, it would likely solve a lot of our greif.
