Pre-sales Questions
 
As a potential new user I have watched and viewed many of the videos produced by Lone Wolf and the community. So far, I am excited by Realm Works and its capabilities. Still, I have a couple of questions before I purchase the software.
  1. Where can I get a copy of the manual without purchasing the game?
  2. If I purchase the software today, will the upcoming 64 bit version upgrade for free for existing owners of Realm Works or will that be an additional purchase?
  3. Maps and their sizes seems to be an issue, if I link the maps as a foreign object will "fog of world" still be usable?
  4. Can I seperate my data into "separate realms" and open 2 or more at the same time on the same machine?
  5. Does Realm Works handle external monitors internally or do I need to set that up my screens as a multi monitor setup for drag and drop operations to the additional monitors.

Thank You

Where can I get a copy of the manual without purchasing the game?
It's not available to my knowledge. It is accessed from within the program itself. My videos go into more detail on how to use the program that the read me though imo.

If I purchase the software today, will the upcoming 64 bit version upgrade for free for existing owners of Realm Works or will that be an additional purchase?

There has been no mention of any additional cost and I would make a large bet that would not happen anyway. There would be riots. I'd wager it will simply roll out as the next update hopefully.

Maps and their sizes seems to be an issue, if I link the maps as a foreign object will "fog of world" still be usable?
This should be solved in the 64 bit upgrade. Map's are large files and large files use a lot of RAM. Therefore 64 bit will greatly increase the available RAM which should solve the issue. The Fog for maps only works in Smart Image Objects. The Fog of World stuff will work though as that just flags a snippet as visible to a player if they use the player view.

Can I seperate my data into "separate realms" and open 2 or more at the same time on the same machine?

You can separate your data into different realms but you cannot open two instances of Realm Works at the same time. It's account based so you can only log in once and that account is tied to your windows account which means you can only login with one user per windows accounts. A number of us would love this to be changed but it was implemented this way to reduce any risk to the database due to possible data conflicts.

Does Realm Works handle external monitors internally or do I need to set that up my screens as a multi monitor setup for drag and drop operations to the additional monitors.
You need to configure Windows to use multiple screens and then you can activate which screen the player view screen appears on from within Realm Works. Super simple to use and really effective. Love this feature.

1) No idea.

2) There has been no talk of any cost for 64-bit, it sounds like it is a natural migration from 32-bit to 64-bit.

3) Fog of World is only available on "Smart Maps", not foreign objects.

4) You can only have one realm open at a time.

5) You can open a "player view" on a second monitor, otherwise RW runs on a single screen.
