I tried to load board LFT2 and got an internal VASSAL error message. I'm using version 6.4.3 of VASL. Anyone else having this issue?

Same result here.

Another 'handy sometime' request: Scenario AP111 "The Katanas Come Out at Night" turns woods into crags and Orchards into scrub. Also, roads are turned into paths. The former two can't be done currently, and it looks like a good candidate for some scenario-specific transformations.

Is there going to a "KW terrain transformation" similar to the "PTO transformation" available some day? Rice paddies and maybe some 'lighter' woods, etc?

I am playing a Suicide Creek scenario by VASL PBEM. Every time that I load a related file, VASL tells me it is updating the map. Shouldn't that happen only once?

Do your other boards update? vasl.info says bdSC is v3 and the data file inside says v3 but your chat window says v0. Maybe you should just grab v3 manually and see if that resolves.

Thanks, I will try that, but I also wished to make the programmers aware.

Are you using Windows and do you have your vasl boards in a directory under c:\Program Files or c:\Program Files(x86)? If so then that directory is protected. vasl tries to download the map, fails, then tries again. See http://www.gamesquad.com/forums/index.php?threads/windows-and-vasl-6-4-3-automatic-map-download-and-update.149015/ for more information.

I am using a Mac. Manually downloading and installing the latest SC map did not change anything. My maps are in a DropBox folder. VASL does something to change the Date Modified, but still updates every time. The screen shot below shows the SC zip that I downloaded today and the map file that VASL updated several times.

My other VASL scenario files are not doing this behaviour.

DropBox? Is something syncing over the download?

I moved by Boards folder out of DropBox to my computer's hard drive. I unzipped the downloaded bdSC file again, which extracts with a Date Modified of April 14, 2011. Running VASL after that produces the same error and update. I wonder if there is an identification error in the file. Perhaps the file is identifying itself as version 0 when it is in fact version 3.

I just downloaded the file from vasl.info. It is correctly marked "v3". The date of Apr 14 matches what I got in the .zip.

I think I see the problem. The data file has v3, but it should have "version 3" I think.

@Michael R, The change was apparently checked in two years ago (and not one year as I said; how time flies), but it was never compiled into the maps that are published. This flaw in the process has been "unstuck", and the map is now updated.

I would like a simple text box, please. Sometimes I don't want to play with HTML and stacking line 1 and line 2 counters on top of each other get a little tedious.

Yay! No more SC map updating every time I load a game file.

To check my understanding...

You’re asking for a pop up type text box with word wrap?

Hi guys,

Just wondering if the initial bug Johnl and I reported regarding LFT2 (and LFT1) has been addressed, or if there is any solution. Thanks.

Doug
