Also the program is not finding my VASSAL version

'Cant get the VASSAL version:
VassalShim error: rc=1'
This is probably because the version of Java and VASSAL you have configured are not compatible.

If you're on Windows, just delete the setting for Java, and the program will use the Java that gets installed as part of VASSAL.

Otherwise, configure the same Java that you use to run VASSAL.

thanks. I sorted it out eventually. I tracked back through the forum and read that somebody else had come across the same issue. I probably need to tweak it a bit more but I've created my first template so Am getting used to the program.

the key was deleting the entry for the Java setting.

I had it working beforehand with an entry in the Java box but only using VASSAL 3.5.5. I can now use 3.5.8. Plus I initially needed to install Google chrome to use the webdriver For win10.
Took a while and numerous permutations but got there in the end.


Cheers

Struggling to incorporate photos in my templates. Can somebody who has successfully done so give me a few pointers?

Cheers

Paul

Problem solved

Open the Overlays window and add a label. For an image from the internet, edit it to be:
<html> <img src="...URL..."> </html>
or for an image on your PC:
<html> <img src="file:///...FILE-PATH..."> </html>

Like others who have posted I haven't managed to get the linked photo images from the internet to load into VASL. From my own PC they work flawlessly. Not a biggie, more of a nice to have, TBH. Otherwise the program is very, very nice.

Chapter H notes I'll address as and when I create a template. It will be a huge job, no question, to attempt to try do it all at once.

Cheers
