Sorry for butting in, but my experiences with cross-platform, Dropbox
and PCGen may be of use.
I use linux systems by preference (laptop and Desktop), but other
members of the groups I play in use various versions of linux, Windows
or Macs. Dropbox is used to co-ordinate between machines/people.
The bottom line is that linux, Windows and Mac machines all happily
share character & portrait directories via Dropbox without problem and
I've recently started sharing homebrew datasets the same way.
The advice I give Windows users is to NOT use the win installer, but to
expand the .zip file into a suitable directory (OK, folder, dammit).
This way, it should be possible to use Dropbox to share the whole PCGen
- just unzip it into Dropbox. However, I'd probably recommend using the
scenario I use (ie unzip onto local hard disk on each machine, then
point the character & portrait files at Dropbox). That way, you can
tweak the bat/shell file to better suit the machine you're running on.
