For the game we will be using the free maptool client found at rptools.net. Make sure you have build 75. It’s a java application that will run on any OS. You may also want to download tokentool and have a go at making your own tokens.
We will be using the Rumble Slim framework. This allows a reasonable degree of automation and tracking of information, whilst still maintaining a reasonable net speed. Some powers can be coded fully using macros. In the future i envisage that players will be responsible for coding and testing their own powers but I am happy to do this for them at first.
After downloading the framework campaign file load it up using maptool and have a muck around with the sample tokens. The client and the framework itself can be a bit daunting at first. Make sure to watch the tutorials as well, they are very helpful.
