Some combos - e.g. to decrease or increase perimeter lines don't work on non-US keyboard : e.g. shift-[...
But that is a very old story and I am not expecting a change (I use the right-click menu).

The Swiss QWERTZ keyboard is quite close to the US QWERTY one.

If you're still considering making minor changes, have you considered adding the Nationality Smoke to
VASL counters -> Unit -> Fire, perhaps right below the SMOKE section?
The SMOKE counters already appear twice, there and with the Nationality Smoke in
VASL counters -> Info -> Destroy

I am always confused when I try to find it. Once the counter toolbar was introduced I have found I have forgotten where many counters are actually located in the normal counter tray. Placing it in the same hierarchy as the normal SMOKE counters makes a lot of sense.

Has anyone tried the new Game Updater functionality in the 667-beta?
For those of you who like to create setup files and struggle to keep them current with each new VASL version, this is for you. It's just a first step, not all the way there. But I need some feedback before I can take it further.
See details and grab the latest beta version at http://vasl.info/vasl_coop.htm.

I see the bug that prevents showing the text unless you use dice as images is still present. Is that scheduled to be fixed in 6.6.7?

ETA: I find the large '1' very distracting. Half the time it's on the wdr, where it doesn't matter, yet it attracts attention to itself.

Not at present. Have to admit that I kind of lost track of it. I think I asked someone to have a look at it. I will follow up.

It is there in the beta version as a test to get some user reaction. Harder to miss if you see the two sizes "side by each". I was asked to create the larger size but so far, reaction is favouring the smaller size. It could be done as a preference but I would prefer to simplify the chat window options until I get the rest of the chat bugs sorted. So, it will likely be one or the other for a while and I think it will be the smaller one.

I have tried updating some old game saves made with 6.6.4 which may be the oldest I have. Munda Mash had PTO terrain and overlays added via the board picker. All worked well as far as I can see with updated counters. It tried to restore LOS checking but it failed (mind you LOS is disabled due to the woods overlays if I make the scenario fresh too).

Overlays are a work in progress. I am making good progress and hopefully woods overlays will start to work with los soon.

This required a change to the Nationality Smoke extension not the VASL module itself. I have made the change and the new version (2.0) of the extension is available for download on VASL.info. It will put the Nationality Smoke counters under both Units->Fire and Info-Destroy. In both cases, pull out the side panel and they will be listed after SMOKE.

If I select "Show dice stats after each dice rolls" die rolls no longer show the stats. They used to appear in 6.6.4, but don't appear in 6.6.6 and 6.6.7-beta2.

Working fine for me in 666, 667beta2, and 667beta4.

Scott, this only happens when playing back log files, correct? I am doing some testing and that is the only situation where I can make it happen. Am I missing something else?

@apbills we have two bugs that Scott has pointed out.

1. When using no dice images and playing back logfiles, nothing shows before or after the players name.

2. When using no dice images, any die roll will print other messages but not the dice stats. This is what you displayed.

I believe I have a fix for #2:

26451

This fix will be in 667beta4.

As for the first issue, I am now working on it and wanted to confirm that it only happens when playing back a logfile. It does not happen on user-generated DR/dr as far as I can see.
