Same result here.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?
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.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?
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.
DropBox? Is something syncing over the download?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.
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 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.
Yay! No more SC map updating every time I load a game file.
