Anyone tried playing via VTT yet (e.g. Roll20)?

Has anyone tried playing via VTT yet? If so, what would you recommend and any hints or tips to share?  :)

I have, and it works great. The only issue I had was with map scaling, because one might be larger than another one when imported into Roll20.

Awesome. I'll give it a crack, then. Thanks for the tip about the scaling—I'll watch out for that.  :)

One thing I found cumbersome was rotating the initiative cards to indicate what actions had been spent.  I had some custom poker chips made for tracking that when playing face to face, so I used the graphics from those to make cards in roll20.  On the front of the card I put the "available" side and on the back I put the "spent" side.  I set the cards to play face down so a player can pull them out of their hand and it will switch from available to spent.  I'd include the graphics here, but I can't get the image insertion to cooperate.

I haven't but plan on running in Fantasy Grounds in the new year. One of the community members created a really great rule set for Alien.

hey,

There is a pretty good mod for tabletop simulator, if you are into that particular type of software.
