Those pics of the projector were unbelievable! I wont be doing any projector based stuff since all my players are remote (except for this weekend they are all flying in), but still its just awesome!

Finally got my projector setup rebuilt and some images of a game session.

This is a second attempt to build a semi-portable low cost device.

The table surface is 4'x6' and projector is sitting around 7' off the floor. This gives space for character sheets and such without interfering with the map. I might try adding pull out "drawers" under the tabletop and then increase the map size; Don't want it too large as then the 1" squares and miniatures don't fit well. The stand is built so it can be taken apart quickly and brought to conventions.

Game taking place is Savage Worlds (PEGInc): Homebrew Prime Directive (ADB).
Map is displayed using Battlegrounds from the laptop and InFocus projector.
Map is from www.ninegods.com (created with Dunjinni/PhotoShop/Gimp?)

Wow...Taran this is amazing......I would like to thanks you for paying tribute to our website and our product!
I use dundjinni but 80% of the map is photoshop.
Looks pretty nice on the table with the projector!
Have fun and thanks again!

Post by cyderak » Wed Dec 09, 2009 1:52 am

Here are some pics of my projector setup. The Gaming Table

Touch screen with the use of a Infrared Pen, Wii-Mote, Projector, and a custom built Table with a Plexi-Glass top to capture the image.

Now that I have purchased Battlegrounds its gonna ROCK!!!

Heres a pic............tried to upload more but it would'nt accpet more than one pic.....maybe it was the size. Heruca maybe you could shrink it down for me and re-post it?

Thanks .

Later.

Shouldn't be the size.
This forum allows each attachment to be up to 30 megabytes (up to 20 MB for inline images like that one), and up to 10 attachments per post (up to 3 in PMs).

That image is nowhere near 20 MB and I doubt your others are either.

It was probably just a server hiccup, though if you find otherwise then I'd definitely like to know about it.
You're welcome to try editing your post to add more attachments or to make a new post.

Looks like those pics are only viewable by people who have joined the Hero Lab Yahoo Group. :(

You could always zip them up and upload them here as an attachment.

I looked into it further and it turns out the webhost screwed something up. I fixed it. Large uploads should now be working again.

EDIT: Ack, cancel that... Still not fixed... Fix pending...
