Sad News.

So I have an iMac that is pretty beefy (40 megs of RAM and 1 TB SSD) and on it I can and do from time to time run VASL. But my primary means of using VASL has been in a Windows 10 VM that is also pretty beefy. Well this morning when I got on my PC and went to my Windows VM, it had restarted. Well the main issue with that is that I have not saved my in progress VASL SASL game. The last save I have had is from game turn 2. The reason so, is that since the LOS tool is broken (see my other posts elsewhere), I decided to just run with it. Well this has cost me.

So I have a save at Game turn 2. I will have to fast forward things using my screenshots (luckily I have those) and will take me a while to rebuild everything...sadfacenothappy.

Here is who did and did not panic.

Stays ?, beyond range to fire

Sgt. Shultz and 1st Line squad move into BFPLP10 and S? in BFPLX8 checks for AC#.
Its a dummy.
Sgt. Shultz makes into to wooden building BFPLP9.

1st Line squad J double times and when it enters BFPFR6 it's spotted by BFPLQ5 at 10 hexes away (squad J is moving in the open).

Just a couple of notes for your edification:

1). As shown in the pics the ATG is possessed by the HS and would cause inexperienced crew penalties (A4.43 POSSESSION: All SW/Gun counters belong to the first Personnel unit stacked beneath them.)

2). Since the 25mm ATG fired at a concealed unit there would be no acquisition gained (C6.5 CASE N; ACQUIRED TARGET: When a Gun (including the MA and SA [Secondary Armament, as per Chapter H Vehicle Listings], of vehicles [EXC: not FT or LATW]) of ≥ 20mm other than a mortar fires at (not Interdicts) a Known unit or a bridge, it may place a ½" -1 Acquired counter on its target...). Also the 25LL ATG is limited to firing only AP ammo so it may NOT use the ATT to gain a 5/8" acq. either (C3.33 AREA TARGET TYPE: The Area Target Type must be used at all times by mortars and whenever ordnance [EXC: LATW] attempts to fire SMOKE; otherwise it may be selected when firing HE (but not AP/HEAT HE Equivalency; 8.31). ).

For item #1, I know about possession and I was totally sloppy when I threw the counters in the map, my bad and I’ll restock them correctly.

For item #2, totally forgot about acq and concealment, thanks for the assist there. Totally duffus up the French AT. Shamefacehideredfacesadman
