Hello,

I might be blind, but I am currently not seeing any way to sync the Database to the Cloud without first closing the Client.
During a session, it is quite annoying if you have to close the client just to release a picture to the players.

Hope you can point me to the right direction,

Thrawn

Thrawn, it sounds like you're looking to do real-time reveal to your players. Unfortunately, real-time reveal through Player Edition is not currently supported. Player Edition is used most often as a reference for previous sessions.

Real-time updates can be shared via the Player View window within your copy of Realm Works. If you're playing in-person, you can show the player view window on your laptop or an external monitor.

Will you be able to do real time reveals through the web client? I ask because I have the potential to run a new instance of my campaign for a group over the web.

Im also looking for saving/syncing the realm in this way. Usually, I do work for some time on the realm and in the end, I would like to sync the changes to the cloud. Currently, for that to happen I have to close the program, open it again, login again and then sync. Is there a way to tell RW to close the editor part and open up the realms list afterwards instead of closing down completely?

Click the Realm Works icon in the upper-left corner of the window and pick Switch Realms.

Push updates would be so nice...I often reveal during games and my players could really benefit from seeing the names of the new NPCs during the conversation. I can't take the time for the Switch Realms-Sync-Reopen cycle when I'm trying to play a couple of NPCs.

I'd have to say it is RealmWorks biggest product performance miss from my perspective.

Anything that allows more immediate updates to the Player Version starts moving into the territory of VTT, which RW is trying to avoid. The player view is designed for showing things to players during a gaming session.

The thing is the player view requires a second screen or some such which not all of us have. Being able to push updates would be helpful in an environment where everyone plays with some screen in front of them, all of my players use HL already.

A second screen, while nice, is not necessary. We also envisioned GMs with Realm Works on their laptop. They work from their laptop, switch to player view and flip their laptop around to show the players, and then face the laptop back towards them to keep playing.
