In this screenshot tutorial we are going to show you how to join a game using the Fantasy Grounds program.

If your DM/GM/Host has an Ultimate License than you will only need a demo version of the program to join the game. If your DM/GM/Host has a Standard License than you will also need at least a Standard License to join the game.

When joining a game your DM/GM/Host will need to give you either an IP address to join or an Alias.


1. Start up the Fantasy Grounds program and once your start up screen is up click on the Join Game button.

2. After clicking the Join Game Button you will need to enter your Username and Host Address. Your Username can be anything you want. Your Host Address has to be the IP Address or Alias that your DM/GM/Host gives you. If it is your first time joining the game than you will see some files downloading and then after the downloading you are all set.

One last thing to note. If you are having problems logging into the game you want to join you can try several things to get joined. First you should add Fantasy Grounds as an exception to any Firewall, Antivirus, Real Time Internet Security programs or parental settings. Secondly, you could try hitting the Nuke Button on the Join Game screen. Doing this will clean out all of the files and once you join again you will download all of the game files again. This basically restores the game you are joining to a default state. Lastly if you are still having problems it may be on the DM/GM/Host side where they may need to do a Port Forward. In that case there is nothing you can do.
