Overall, this was a pretty decent program. I do wonder about the die rolling though, as it did seem heavily weighted on the low end (although it was Daniel rolling so...)
And it's also clear I'm going to have to get another trackball if we do this in the future as this whole finger trackball thing on my laptop is for the birds.
Obviously, this will never replace good old fashioned face-to-face gaming, but is an interesting way to run a game with the old crew who are scattered to the four winds. In many ways, this has some of the things I want to do on my dream "Gaming Table" (complete with potential for secret messages to be passed to and from players by the GM via an IM like thing...
Other than the bad night with the dice, I can't think of any complaints I had about the program itself. The manual leaves a bit to be desired, and it will take some time to learn how to use the program to its full potential. It'd be good to be able to test it with more connections and see if it remains stable.
Overall, a positive experience.
