Long Distance Gaming 4 Years, 3 Months ago  
Hi all,

I am a GM that resides in so-cal. My gaming group is in Seattle, Washington. We use Skype to game and it works out great. The only problem is trying to figure a way to use my DF set for gaming. Also, we are at the mercy of Skype and the its speed.

Have any of you gamed using cameras? Also, my laptop has the best camera but I cant figure a way to use it to have a "birds eye" view of DF.

Any suggestions would be great!

Hello,

I have never attempted to game long distance , with all the tech that is available it should be pretty easy to set some thing up. What part of SO-CAL you live in? . I am in riverside county.

I am in South Orange County. We currently use our laptops to game over Skype and that usually works. If I were to use DF, I would not be able to use my laptops cameras as I would have to attach it to something and it is quite heavy. I have a 2nd computer, but that is 4 years old and I also have a camera for it. We tried using 2 computers on both ends but the resolution from my 2nd camera is bad, at best.

We want to use DF, but it might not work for our group...
