Valuable resource; thanks guys! I have 'stuck' this thread to the top so it doesn't get lost. Anyone can still ud-date as needed, though.

Q: I may be an id10t but how do you play sasl on vasl? I have installed both VASL & SALSAII on my computer but don't know how to link them . I hate dusty boards and knocked over counters and lack a ftf opponent. I would appreciate any HELP[/I]

Probably not the best thread to post a question, but...

There's no 'link' between them, they are separate entities, VASL acts as your 'virtual' board and pieces, and you go to SALSA when you need to make activation checks, or prep fire actions for example.

For VASL, I display the "VASL Activation Window" and "Activation mini-controls" from the SALSA Game menu. I roll AC dr in VASL, and if the S? activates, use the SALSA "Man. Act" button to see what units it is. Those windows are small and will fit your VASL layout to avoid lots of paging back and forth.

If you have a microphone, SALSA also has voice recognition capability. Press ctrl-h to see the available voice commands.

There is a comprehensive listing at the bottom of my Master ASL Scenario Listing available in the download section of this site.

For the SALSA programme i'm going to purchase a netbook to run it on, and just do the dice rolling for the ASL portion of SASL. A laptop seems to take up too much space. So for this reason my SASL'ing is on hold at the moment! (sorry if this is a bit off topic).

Le Franc Tireur 11 (which is still in print) has an amazing looking SASL historical campaign featuring the 1st Ranger Battalion in Italy.

It's a true SASL hidden treasure!

Re: Useful SASL resources

MESSAGE to the notorius and great 'General' Zucker of GSASL fame. It's been many moons and hills lost and taken since I was part of one of your campaigns. Forget which one....I know I did a couple of 'Ranger' scenarios....and German 35th Infantry I think. Kevin Conley of North Carolina and I now have a fictional GSASL campaign running around Island of MALTA circa 1942. You are welcome to check out our website www.gsasl2015recruits.wordpress.com (link verified by moderator July 24, 2020) We have about 20 people playing including Rick Lubben and Joergen Holmquist. We've just completed Mission One with an active 9 Italian Compagnia and 9 German Kompanie. If you want to touch base or send others to my attention .... jim.bennett@shaw.ca Hope you are still playing ASL.

Re: Useful SASL resources

Further to www.gsasl2015recruits.wordpress.com (link verified by moderator July 24, 2020)
It has had a recent update .... Campaign about to start MISSION 3 on Island of Malta as of weekend of October 11, Looking for some replacement troops on Italian side...and maybe could handle couple more on German side as well.
Contact jim.bennett@shaw.ca if you are SASL fan and want to learn campaign style with GSASL and have some fun.... We currently have around 20 players involved. Can also handle teaching of basic SASL play via SKYPE AND VASL. Open to whatever it takes to get more involved.

Re: Useful SASL resources

Just FYI for anyone still following or linked to this string. Hans Mielants' (http://www.mielants.com/Simulation/ASL.html) and the GASL (http://showcase.netins.net/web/lubbensite/gsasl.htm) webpages are no longer active. Is there any way to get this content or is it too late?

Thanks!
Most of Rick's GSASL site content is still available in the WaybackMachine

I have saved copies of most of the content from both sites. If you can't locate something feel free to send me a PM with your email address and what you are looking for and I'll try to help.

If anyone knows how to reach Hans or Rick please let me know and I'll ask them for permission to post their material where we can all share it.

We are now into MISSION 4 on Island of MALTA and still looking for new SASL (GSASL) recruits during summer of 2016

Also I'm looking to buy these missions if anyone has extra copies, it's way too expensive for me to buy the whole product for them:

Thanks, updated above. I'll just keep it in the "Random Map" section, maybe people will adapt future-maps with it as well.
