Anyone use projectors in their games?

    I love my tiles, but I have to admit that this was a pretty cool setup:

    Maybe if I win the multi-state lotto and have the wherewithal to build a house with a dedicated gaming room, I'll investigate this kind of setup.

    There is a pretty goof Flickr group of gaming table spaces from my setup is on there at this link:[email protected]/1138804468/in/pool-gamingspaces/

    We have a large CRT projector that projects on the wall, and another smaller one (on a shelf in the pictures I took) that aims down for the map grid.

    Funny thing is, the weather has been so nice the past few weeks, we've been playing outside on the porch with a few books and no maps.... been a lot of fun...:)

    I play at the student center of the university where my group got together. However, that was 5 years ago and none of us are still in school. Still, it's centrally located for all of us so we can't move. I want to play at my house, but it just isn't convenient for everyone.

    So, projectors, large libraries, good sound-systems, and all sorts of neat stuff is out of the question :(

    I put up a ormal monitor, to display pictures of locales and persons, and the classic STAR WARS crawl... but it confused my players they said....

    we are painting our tables pure white, and using a marker to add a 1" grid on the table. Then we plan on sealing it, and using the standard overheard projector sheets to build our maps. This way its still re-usable. costs maybe $20 from re-store, and i can have all my rooms/encounters built in advance.
    besides, its hard to install a projector in a basement.

    Man, I would love a setup like that. Right now I'm just happy if I can prevent my cats from jumping on the table and ravaging the minis. Of course, a projector setup wouldn't likely help with that. The dust illuminated by the beam would be like a magnet to the lil' bassards.
