Second and third PC with same Steam account and Dropbox clouded projects
Before buying, I want to know.
Am I allowed to use my same steam laptop for continuing work on my project when travelling, and my second PC when Im in my second apartment in capital city? None would work same time of course. all can connect to net to verify.

How can I setup project saving to my cloud storage? (Dropbox for example)

Are you going to go for tablets for editing and viewing? Please do as I do a lot of my work whiole traveling on iPad. and its very usefull.

Is it going to be available on 2013 iMac?

Honestly they should just have the thing a networked whiteboard and bypass all that trouble. I'm a little shocked they didn't think of anything like that. That's a typicall work format for most dev teams I know of.

:edit: They actually do have networking. So my above comment was just my ignorance. I just didn't see it on the version available on steam. They have another package made for teams available on their website.

@Mason: I have posted something about our multi-user features in your other thread, over here.

@athelasloraiel: You can use articy:draft SE on several machines, but only the machine where your Steam client is logged in will be able to run it. So the workflow you described should work. Dropbox brings a few traps you can fall into, though. For example, when you're booting up articy:draft on your machine B and open the project before Dropbox has finished synchronization, you'll be vieweing an outdated version of your project. Saving your project now overwrites the changes you've made on machine A.

But besides that, I see no problems with the setup you've described. If you'll actually put this into action and can spare some time, please update us here on your experience with it.

Best regards,

Would it be possible to, in a later version, synchronize projects over the Steam Cloud instead of having to use an external program like Dropbox?

This "Would it be possible to, in a later version, synchronize projects over the Steam Cloud instead of having to use an external program like Dropbox?"

Looks great.

None of us here at Nevigo is a Steam Cloud expert, so we'll have to do some research before we can estimate the workload associated with this. In case it looks doable, we'll definitely put it on our roadmap.

Thanks for the suggestion, enenra.
