    Ersatz VASLeague 2021

    I think Stefano sent an email, but just in case... We played AP148 Beacon of Hope. Stefano Piccardo's Swedes/Norwegians performed an excellent defense and defeated Mike Augustine's attacking Germans.

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    No, but a wounded hero that fails a MC does. From the RB: 5.2 HEROES: A hero is represented by a SMC with a Strength Factor of 1-4-9. If it fails a MC, the hero is considered wounded and the counter flipped to the wounded side where it displays a Strength Factor of 1-3-8 and must undergo a...

    VASL 6.6.1 counters font is fuzzy

    I would concur, the units on board are quite good. The few small fuzzy toolbar items are a lower priority for me. It's the Dice Rolls in the chat that are the worse. Those large dice rolls are truly out of focus, and makes me feel like I need glasses.

    VASL 6.6.1 counters font is fuzzy

    I am running VASSAL 3.4.12. on a PC. Played with Disabling DirectX D3D pipeline. No joy yet.

    VASL 6.6.1 counters font is fuzzy

    I loaded the latest VASL 6.6.1. Everything works fine. However, the counters, font and toolbar have a fuzzy, out-of-focus look to them. Dice rolls in chat are particularly noticeable. Anyone know if this is fixable, or if this a current feature of 6.6.1?

    ASLSK New Rule Wishlist

    There is a lot of 'good rules' missing from SK, which were surely decided for simplicity reasons. But I agree with Evan Sherry that a rule that is needed is Deliberate Immobilization. Without it, many tanks are essentially unstoppable in SK. My other personal preference for inclusion is Open...

    #34: Storm of Steel

    Loved US chocolate, including Hershey's, growing up. Then I was stationed in Germany. German (and every other European chocolate) has spoiled my palate. I have not finished a Hershey's bar since. I will spend the $$ for European or other high end chocolates. I heard that about 100+ years...

    eRulebook, Pocket Chapter H and errata update (for those not on FB)

    Scott, Can I plead that for the eASLRB has the Index updated? In spite of numerous expansions (and CGs/HASLs) since the original release of ASLRBv2, the Index has not been updated (nor errata provided) for HP, FW, and other important rules additions or changes.

    "Boss, boss!!! De plane, de plane!!!"

    I think the Major was looking for a more colorful answer: On DR 4, a flak explodes so close that the pilot craps his pants. The pilot and the crew spends the entire turn trying to clean up the mess.

    Updated ASL Armory

    I, for one, find it very useful. But also, I know such projects can be time consuming. It is the cherry on top, and if you decide not to do it, I will still be grateful for the armory that you provide.

    APCR (ASL Player Comparative Ratings)

    My quick thoughts: Player ratings for Non-Tournament games contributes to weird, undesirable, competitive behavior - some of which has been noted here. There is also other 'weird behaviors' that have not been stated that I have seen or heard. APCR should only be used for Tourneys. I...

    Sad and angry About VASL 6.5.0

    I suggest "Axis/CPVA/KPA OB", which would also couple better with "Allies/UN OB". Also, if one feels the CPVA rules are cumbersome, I suggest picking up "Rally Point 17 - Special Study II of the Korean War". It has the "CPVA Guide: Organized by Sequence of Play", which can come in very handy.
