    Default GS on iPad

    I am just wondering if it is possible. I stopped using my laptop as I don't game on PC anymore and all I carry around are my iPads now.

    As winter is drawing in and I want to stay home more I thought of how much I loved staying in on those wintery days just playing GS.

    So yeah, can I just play with my iPad rather than my PC. Thanks either way. Love you. x

    Possibly through the web browser. I didn't it before. It sucks.

    To piggyback off that question, what about playing on a Microsoft Surface? Just the website or can you actually download a front-end?

    Surface pro3 8gig/256 works with lich/stormfront with no issues for me. It's a few years old now so I imagine newer one's should be fine too. I know it's billed it as a tablet but I've rarely used it as such (except when taking handwritten notes using Onenote). It serves mainly as my work desktop connected to 2 monitors and a laptop at home. Only bought it when my black macbook crapped out finally and mac was mid-cycle nothing compelling to try new.

    The auctioneer nods to you as you bid 1,337 silvers.

    The auctioneer calls out, "Ardwen bids 175,000,000 silvers! New bids must be at least 192,500,000 silvers."

    le sigh.

    I have a bluetooth keyboard for my iPad. You can use the web client. But it comes with a couple caveats ...

    1. A HUGE Room title and room description always takes up all but 10 or 11 lines of your screen. So, essentially, your story window is 10-11 lines of text and that's all. It doesn't matter whether you have room descriptions on or off.

    2. If you blink and the tablet screen goes to sleep, you're disconnected.

    I think without a bluetooth keyboard, you may have 2 lines of story window because of the screen keyboard. if that many.

    Now, all this from an iPad3, not the newer iPad Pro which comes with both a larger screen and a heftier price point.

    By the end of that post I thought you were a bot selling tech.
    Thanks though. I'm not sure that I'm gong to be able to use scripts etc. Definitely iPad won't be able to run lich which is a deal breaker.
    Never mind though I was just wondering. Think I'll get a little PC instead.

    If you reacquire Shimmerain I might consider resubbing. Just saying!

    You arrange yourself on the throne.

    You attend to your gold wirework circlet, carefully smoothing the hair underneath, and adopt a regal air as you survey the area.

    You think to yourself, "I got this"

    (wrathbringer78) I think that's it. Viril is one big obnoxious ambient script.

    Web client is trash. Your best option is probably to use TeamViewer to remote into your laptop.

    I got profanity running on a free Google Cloud VM and then I use an SSH client on my iPhone/iPad to access it. Works well, works with lich, pretty lightweight.

    Check out the Profanity wiki page. I put some basic instructions at the bottom of it. Not for the feint of heart but if you know a thing or two about cloud VM's it should be easy enough.
