    Well, it doesn't begin shipping until June next year, assuming it stays on schedule.

    And since we are all curious as to what the FG integration might be. Here's a response to this question on the KS from the TF CEO;

    I saw that but I have no idea how they will architecture that. People have been asking to be able to throw a map on another screen for ages to better support local play and you simply cannot do it because fantasy ground windows are not Windows. You have to open another client and use that to show the map but you cannot interact with it without cluttering up the screen with a bunch of other windows.

    My guess they are sending the map window to the glasses like they would send a map to another player - that it does not actually function as just another display? They did mention display updates can be asynchronous they do not have to be frame rate locked.

    There is currently zero support for doing anything 3D. The only thing I can think of here is that they have been quietly incorporating the Tabletop Connect code into the Unity engine despite them saying their FGU kickstarter was for feature parity only.

    For those that are unaware they hired this guy that did this and we all got FG licenses instead. So if they rendered the dungeon scenes with this - I sure wish we had TableTop Connect and CastAR five years ago!

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...rtual-tabletop

    My impression of Take5 is the hardware prototyping was already done at the end of CastAR, and we just never got it because they switched to making it into a portable gaming console and hiring a gaming studio which burned all their money. So I think all the R&D is done and now it is just the manufacturing phases to get thru. At least I hope that it is not another five years waiting....

    Well, since you dropped in to say hello...
    I admit I haven't checked the KS FAQ in while, but can you tell us more about the integration (?) with FG? Not only how you envision it working, but when it fits into your timeline etc?

    It's a little early to discuss what the final integration will look like because work has just started and I think the joy of sharing the final experience should be up to the FG team. The t5 system has many features that can apply to FG, so I suspect the integration will continually evolve into richer experiences. We've committed and prioritized our resources to make sure this integration is done for, or near our launch.
