What about the performance of DJ2, will we notice a big improvement compared to actual DJ (speed) ? And the system requirements, will an expensive graphic card make a difference, the processor cache memory, etc.?

Speed improvemnt is at the top of the feature list, so I would certainly hope we will see that
I think extra cache is always good when using a graphically based application.

Will DJ2.0 require Vista?

Nope ... I haven't seen anything that would indicate you need Vista instead of XP.

I was thinking....with all this Digital Initiative crud going on at WotC as well as the hoopla, would it be possible for you guys at Dundjinni to make an open correspondence with the "silent ones" so they actually live up to their lofty words by somehow including you guys in their equations.

WotC and this glee stuff seem to indicate that they want all things games under their roof, especially when it has something to do with the hobby. If they do, in fact, have an open offer, could you all test this. I am sure Dunjinni belongs in this gaming equation.

I considered at one point that with Codemonkey's RPG Foundry, Your Dunjinni, Profantasy's Campaign Cartographer and Smithworks Fantasy Grounds; I would have everything I would ever need to create exciting D&D from the keyboard of my computer. As it turns out, nothing other than SRD or OGL is allowed, unless I am as skilled as a programmer. I hope WotC will somehow encompass all this into one, but I have my reservations (I really think they will just usher in 3 new core books under 4.0 and program new material from there). Perhaps they want to somehow compete with Codemonkey's RPG Foundry in creating an adventure editor as well as PC creation tools. I also believe that they will use their Dungeon Tiles, as they already have a dungeon tile creator toy online. Dunjinni should somehow be in this equation as an importing graphics program to be used with existing Dungeon Tiles. They should also take into account the map community. Dungeon Tiles, Game Master Map Packs, and our own custom content really work great together, and perhaps if WotC has their own in house Fantasy Grounds/RPG Foundry, this whacky dream of mine can still be realized. Then I would feel Glee to the Max.

Cheers,
Zuxius

I have been discussing this with several people here and from other places you mentioned. Most believe WotC will indeed evolve to more online gaming material and applications. However, that doesn't mean we like to join them (my personal opinion btw). As you stated, they seem to use their position in the RPG market to force people along their chosen path ... a lot of us don't like that. Does that mean a coming together of applications will never happen? Nah ... I think we will see some companies working closer together in the near future, to be able to offer a wider range of online RPG stuff and also to be able to compete with WotC.

I am personally involved with several companies already and have friends among a lot of others. If it is not a coming together, there will at least be projects we will be doing together ... including Dundjinni Enterprises

Ok.
So schlecht gewesen?
Noch mal also.
Ich würde mich freuen, wen nicht nur D20 eingebaut wird, sondern es frei definierbar ist, so das jeder selbst ein system einflegen kann.
#Ich nutze Das Programm für viele Spiele, nur nicht für D20.
Sory wegen meinem schlechten Schriftbild im Englischen, lesen klappt viel besser ;)

I know what you mean. I can read and speak German just fine ... writing it is a bit more difficult

To asnwer your question ... Yes, we do plan to allow different systems to be used to create adventures.

What Kepli says,
I've been doing some R&D and I think I can confidently say that the solution we are trying to come up with will not be tied down to just one rule set. I can comment on any specifics because we are still in a design phase. I'm happy in the way it is headed tho.

My personal opinion is the more Dundjinni can keep itself as a sovereign entity, and not get in bed with foreign influences (and by foreign, I mean companies not people... ), the better.

So what is the upgrade path to the new version for those of us who own it? Or do previous owners get it free?

I suspect owners of the current DJ will get a discount when upgrading to
DJ2. I don't recall if there's been any official word on this, however.

That is my understanding too. Art packs should port over without cost to as I understand it. IE you won't have to repurchase art packs you already own for DJ1 for them to work with DJ2.

Disclaimer: This is only my understanding and as I'm human I could well be confused :)

Yes, the moderators are correct (as they usually are) - DJ1 owners will definitely get a discount on DJ2 - and the artpacks should be compatible with DJ2 (tho' you may need to re-download the pack in the new format).
