    LOS Frozen through overlays and wrecks

    Doug, Just sent the vlog file - cannot send vsav since program is frozen. I can send a vsav file from the point just before the freeze - would that be useful? Also, if it helps I was able to finish my move and save the file - the problem is that we are unable to play the file back (it freezes...

    LOS Frozen through overlays and wrecks

    When tracing a LOS through an overlay and about a half-dozen wrecks (desert scenario) the program froze. It unfroze about 30 seconds later and I continued the turn and finished the log, but on playback can't seem to be able to get beyond the freeze (playing the file back we get to the freeze...

    Question for Original Squad Leader Players

    Well we are talking about a game which was released in four parts between 1977 and 1983 - and last printed in 1998 (assuming AH continued printing CoI, CoD, and GI up to the end, which I doubt they did. When you cut through all the nostalgia BS, OSL is fatally flawed due to its lack of...

    The future of the Ersatz VASLeague

    I was thinking it might be a good idea to have shorter intervals between games in the winter when the weather is cold and longer intervals in the summer when the weather is warm, then I realized for people in the southern hemisphere the seasons are reversed!

    The future of the Ersatz VASLeague

    FWIW there is a Combat Commander ladder with monthly live games via VASSAL, and from my experience those scenarios take A LOT longer then a small or even small/medium sized scenario in ASL.

    CX question

    I have a squad in a foxhole in the woods. There is another foxhole in an adjacent woods hex. If my squad advances out of one foxhole into the adjacent woods and into the other foxhole, is the unit cx? I would say no, since entering the woods hex and foxhole only cost 3 of the squad's 4 MP's.

    smoke caused by bypassing wreck

    Here is the situation - a US M4 was bypassing a woods hex with a german squad (yes this was the infamous VPB sleeze.) The Germans managed to find a panzerfaust, and we have one flaming US tank. Now obviously any LOS which touches the smoke will get a +2 for the smoke coming from the burning...

    Capturing a Pillbox

    I advance into a hex with an enemy occupied pillbox, and eliminate the enemy unit in CC. Can one or more of the units which at attacked the pillbox in CC occupy the location at the end of the turn, or does that have to wait till my next movement phase?
