I will only ever use one computer, but I think it's definitely worth it. I think it's an important feature for some people, and will cause a lot of grief if left out - imagine the numerous forum threads by one-time posters on the issue!
Two months? Although I can wait, it depends on the most opportune moment to release it, and when you want to release it. It's your call.


(People you overuse the word 'personally'. I think it's a horrible word, it's unnecessary).

Instead you will run utility program from the Dawn of Fantasy start menu that creates a small file on your desktop that you can e-mail or put on a flash drive, and "install" on the other computer.

Just reading that method makes me feel tired...

The only part of the game that I think SHOULD be accessible by any computer you sign in on as yourself is the MMO, As mentioned possibly a system similar to that of Guild Wars' one... If you wanted to continue your campaign on a different computer then one must expect to have to transfer data in the abformentioned manner...

I think it would be painful to see the many threads on it... Also it also depends on whether during these 2 months there will be other work done to the game... If this is the ONLY thing to be implemented then I think no it is not worth it...

And aye Puppy... I didnt realise it until you mentioned actually Too many mentiones of 'that' word XD

Personally, when I use personally, it's because it's just my opinion and won't matter in the long run, so they should feel free to disregard it.

I think it would be a nice feature, but not essential.

Personally i think that flexabily is vital for the long term sucess of a game. Many people inlcuding myself update my computer on a yearly basis so not having that feature to copy thoose files over onto my new computer would be deeply concerning.

Although i dont beleive it warants 2 months of development i believe it should be definatly added on at a later stage!

One thought would be if mmorts data was held on a central server? and you log onto that information so it is held not on your computer. That way you could affectivly log on any computer?? although i am not sure how vilable option that is?
