    Question Regarding Fantasy Grounds Unity and Demo Versions

    Greetings All,

    My gaming group and I want to try out Fantasy Grounds Unity.

    We obviously like the idea of "try before you buy".

    How many players can a GM host using a Demo version of the software at once? Is it just 1-on-1 or can I try the 3 players at once - we would like to test connection speeds out etc.

    We are all using Discord at this stage but would like some interactivity - like character sheets etc etc.

    Aside from that ... if I (the GM) had the Ultimate version of the software, could players use the Demo version of the software (hence only I would pay for the software) ?

    Any help appreciated
    D

    Demo is 1:1
    You can sub for an Ultimate and the Demo players can connect and if you are not happy you can request a refund within 30days.

    Thank you for the reply ... so that would be a no to demo-ing with multiple demo players using a demo version?

    You cannot host a game at all with the demo version of Unity. Not even 1:1, You could do this with Classic but not with Unity.

    As damned says take out a sub for a month if you want to test it out. If it's not for you you can cancel the sub within 30 days and get a refund by emailing [email protected].
    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 to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    my bad folks - I had forgotten that. You cannot demo FGU without a license.

    To clarify, you can try out the software, make characters and check out the interface. However, a license is required to have anyone connect to your campaign.
