Used to play the heck out of this module a year ago. I can't get it to start now. There's no map and it doesn't proceed past the setup screen where you switch your side. I'm trying to play solo. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the module.

Thanks in advance for any help

Which one of the several modules are you using?

I had to re-download that one as I use a heavily modified version of the module. After doing so I started it up and it seemed to be working correctly. The map was showing up and, after a good little pause, the module started working. Have you tried downloading it again yourself?

Mine worked without re-downloading.

I'm using version 2.1 and the newest vassal module on an old windows machine.

Works fine on my machine, no re download needed.
I've heard that java updates can mess with Vassal in general, any chance that might be your issue?

Hmm. I've deleted and reinstalled the module. No luck

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Java and made sure I didn't have any out of date versions installed. No luck

I've uninstalled and the VASSAL program itself. No luck.

I just can't get past the initial set-up screen.

Such a pity. I'd like to play but have a cat and can't set it up.

I've found that screen to be finicky - after you press the start make sure that you don't do anything for a while. I've also had issues when trying to load a file with the wizard, but letting the OS handle it has worked better.

Even when I try to load an old log file. Nothing. I give up.

Wait. maybe not. I just took a screen shot using VASSAL and the screen shot showed a normal screen. Ideas?
