    Localhost question

    Okay, for complicated reasons, I need to run FG for my in-person session at a location where I can't set up router permissions. If everyone is on the same wifi, can the players login via localhost to join the game, or does that only work for a second instance on the same PC? Worst case scenario, I can run a second instance for the players and display it on the TV, but that would prevent everyone from using FG themselves and I'd need to control everyone's tokens, etc.

    Thanks in advance!

    On the same LAN players would log in using the IP address of the host machine rather than alias or external. Localhost is only used to join a second instance on the same computer.
    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/
