Voice chat is definitely a matter of preference. I know a quite a few people (myself included) who can't stand it and refuse to use voice for VTT games. I can definitely see it's utility, but it's not for me.

But how can I technically do this? I mean about dividing desktops etc. Don't know how... OK, if I were to do it with my laptop, I would do it this way: Get a second monitor and run the cable to my laptop (which has a plug for an external monitor). In windows XP, you can set up your display by right...

GO - I believe he is talking about this package that MS has developed for using multiple mice on a single PC. If I read the overview on it correctly it allows for multiple cursors. My understanding was that it was an SDK/API that you had to implement in your software but I didn't really look that h...

If you did this, you can have two mice plugged in, but you would still only have one cursor/mouse pointer. So basically only the GM or the players could be moving the mouse at any one point in time, and it could get really confusing passing the cursor from screen to screen between two different peop...

They are separate programs which don't integrate at the moment.

You could use them side by side, but they don't work "together".

Well, that all depends...

Eastern time is currently on Daylight savings and so Dorpond probably isn't on EST (GMT-5), he's likely on EDT which is GMT-4.

I always turn off the wireless when plugging in the laptop. Head scratching is about all I'm left with. I've done similar speed tests in the past and found that wireless through the router and wired through the modem were about the same. I don't think we're going to find a good answer here other tha...

Yes, the desktop was connected to the router at that time.

OK, call me slow but how am I supposed to run kperf to test the connection from one computer to the other if I plug the laptop into the modem directly? If I do this, then the router won't be present and I won't have the second computer handy to act as the server.

The numbers are better with the laptop plugged into the router, but the problem that I notice when using maptool still persisted when I tried it out immediately afterward. Also, I repeated a few of the wireless tests right after the wired tests, and achieved similar results as the first wireless tes...
