Indeed, that will need to be updated. (A version rebuilt from the PR I referenced above won't trigger that error message.)

VASL 6.5.1 won't load when using VASSAL 3.4.1. Error message says "Incompatible."

Anyone else experiencing this? What's the fix?

Can someone please tell me what we should be running at the moment. I am using module version 6.5.1 with VASSAL version 3.2.17 which is probably wrong..................because I am not seeing some of the extensions (BFP counters, cloaking box............)

That is what I am running as well. Check that your preferences are pointing to the correct folder for your extension. Check that your extensions are actually there.

VASSAL v3.2.17 with VASL v6.5.1 is what you currently need.

VASSAL v3.4.x with VASL v6.6.x is what you will need when VASL v6.6.x will have been released.

If you cannot see your extensions, you should check in the prefenrences of VASL if the path set there is correct - in the pic below, this is - of course - the path on my machine. Yours will likely vary and you'll probably know where so saved your extensions:

Some of these are really obsolete, though some might still work, while others have long been incorporated into VASL and might now cause trouble as an Extension.

The more current place to look for Extensions is here on vasl.info.

And we need V 3.4 because.............
Uckelman could explain this much better than me, but IIRC some of the reasons are that

  • VASSAL v3.2 requires JAVA v8 which is totally outdated and responsible for increasing troubles.
  • hardware has further developed and higher screen resolutions are now common, which needs to be technically addressed by VASSAL
  • a long list of bug fixes an improvements compared to previous versions
