I have a strange issue that I have to re-configure the maps when loading logfiles/setups.

6.4.2b3 loads them fine
6.4.2 I get sent to the boards configuration screen

Java 1.8u161
VASSAL 3.2.17
Linux (Fedora 27) OS

Below are screenshots of the two versions of VASL. On the second one it is post-map selection where I did not re-pick the maps.

The boards directory in preferences is the same for both.

Can you post your VASSAL log file?

Appears to happen to me in Windows 10 (dual boot)

Note: I did 'modify' the VASL to change the default map zooms, but I did that in 6.4.2b3 and 6.4.1 also without trouble. No other mods that I can think of.

Note2: Here is the text output to the console/terminal.
- Using board(s): 47(vAP10-unofficial-01) 39(vAP10-unofficial-01)
- Using board(s):
- Loaded AP10-067.vlog

These are custom boards, but it happens for other logfiles too.

For example, I get a similar output for ESG003, but again, no boards.

- Loading ESG003-007-T3_GermanRally.vsav ...
- Using board(s): 41(v6.3) 03(v6.3)
- Using board(s):
- Loaded ESG003-007-T3_GermanRally.vsav

In what way are the boards customized - specifically does the customization change the hex grid in any way (in the regular hex grid, hex A1 is full height and half width? Are the boards cropped?

I see that you say this happens with other logfiles. Do those contain customized boards as well or regular ones?

ESG003 is straight up boards, cropped. AP10 uses full length boards, no cropping.

Loaded them up on Windows 10 (VASSAL/VASL is stored in a shared Dropbox folder used by both OS's) and the same issue happens with 6.4.2 but not 6..4.2b3.

Got it fixed. Re-downloaded VASL 6.4.2 and it works. Sorry to have made a lot of work for you guys, but I apparently got a bunk version of the file or messed something up adjusting the zoom levels.

Beers on me if we ever meet and you are able to jog my memory of this discussion. Bud Light though unless you bring a cute lady for me to dance with. :)

Good news that you got it sorted. There was a brief hiccup with VASL.info earlier this week so don’t take all the blame. Always happy to help.

But no takebacks on the buying beer. Picking up on a FB post earlier today by the renowned Brian Youse about trash-taking, when did Bud Lite become beer? Groan, l know!
