The VASL Cabal is proud to anounce the release of VASL 6.0.

You can read all about it on the map bazaar:

https://sites.google.com/site/vaslmapbazaar/vasl-6-0

VASL 6 runs on VASSAL 3.2.8 and offers a lot of improvements. Do note, that on the very first startup it'll tile all your maps and counters and that can take a lot of time. So please be patient. The software will only do that once.

The QC extension is now part of the VASL core. Remove it from your extension folder.

The buttons on the QC toolbar are not for dragging. You use it by clicking on a unit to highlight it and then click on a QC button to put that counter (e.g. Prep) on the highlighted unit.

Using the built-in QC toolbar I can drag counters to the map where the toolbar button represents a single counter. But using any of the drop-down counter buttons such as smoke or acq generates an error or nothing happens.


Thanks. Are you running it on MacOS?

We're collecting bugs on GS for now, btw:

Several people have reported that the drag'n drop from the menu bar does not work on MacOS.

Actually, this just changed a short while ago to enable placing counters where none were before.

And is there a clear link to download 6.0? I'm tired of hunting.

Found it HERE.

There really should be a text link to the "VASL Section" on asl.net. As it is, it is just disguised as a logo next to all the links.

Unless you can get the VASSAL people to have VASSAL auto-intall Java 7 you may have to tell users to update to the latest Java 7 before using VASL 6.0.


Well I run it on Java 6 and it works fine. The fault is with the Oracle Java installer that raises all sorts of problems. When in doubt, reinstall the JDK/JRE just like you did. Glad it solved your problem.

Joel keeps a collection of commonly asked questions on the vassalengine site:

Everything worked fine for me before and still works fine with 6.0.1. I'm using Windows 7. But thanks for the quick response for those that were having trouble.
