    I'd love the ability to view maps as a player while logged in as a GM. I use D20Pro with my home game and usually I run it on multiple computers with one being the GM and one being the Player view pumped into a television. I've tried running multiple instances of the app on one computer, but have run into frustrating lag. With at least half of the updates that have occurred since purchase I run into an instance where the update won't work properly on my player computer. I'd love to be able to mirror the screen and be able to set the view to that of a player. This would be beneficial for both verifying FOW and running home games.

    You can do this by launching a second instance of the application on the same PC and connecting to yourself on 127.0.0.1 ..
    As to issues, how much RAM do you have allocated to the application? and how much total system RAm do you have?

    Currently I'm running with 16GB total and when I was running a second instance I was devoting 5–6GB to both the instances and while the GM instance worked, the PC instance generally wouldn't display the tiles and only periodically would display the fog of war.
