I was at Britfest and saw Artemis for the first time and am looking into purchasing it. The guy running the game said he was able to put the licensing/game on USB drives, so he can just put in the USB into laptops and play. Is this part of the normal setup or is there something I will need to know/do special to make that happen.

I was considering purchasing the $40 pack from the website and wanted to invite friends over and thought it would be cool if I could just have some USB drives with it loaded on and when they leave I could then reclaim them for use on other peoples laptops if I have other people over with different laptops.

I also see they have it for android, does that work well with the computer version and do they have it available in the amazon app store? My girls have kindle fires and I thought it might be nice to get them a client too.

Any tips or tricks for a new setup would be great. Thanks

Yes, if you want to you can run Artemis directly from a USB drive. Or you can copy the files to the C: drive (anywhere really) if you want. Just don't rename the folders INSIDE the Artemis folder and you'll be fine. A lot of people do this for scripted games; you get one copy working and then use the USB stick(s) to get the files to the other PCs.

Legally speaking, the $40 license covers one bridge (server) and one of each console (clients), but there is no DRM or copy protection that would prevent you from running more copies than that.

My understanding is that the Android and iOS clients lag behind the PC client considerably in terms of version number. Also, you cannot play custom missions with these.

However, any Windows tablet with an Intel or AMD CPU that is NOT running "Windows RT" will run Artemis. The system requirements for Artemis are ridiculously low.

I think creating 6 USBs with the game would work great, so I can take the game with me. My wife is always trying to figure out cool things for the girl scouts to do and sometimes they go to the library, so if I can convince them to let me plugin my USB drives then I could have a little mobile lab, then move those sticks back home to play with my buddies on there laptops. I'm not planning on creating tons of copies, just 6 mobile copies that are hardware independent. If that is not against the TOS then sweet. and thanks for the heads up.

If this was the BritishFest in Omaha, then I was the guy you talked to there.

Feel free to PM me on this board, or use the phone or email on the card I gave you if you need assistance with the setup.

I have my bridge license on some cheap usb drives, so whoever comes over I just give them the drive and they run off it. I keeps license intact and make sure everyone is on same version.
