I updated my VASL to 6.03 and whatever the latest Vassal version, and noticed the LOS tool no longer works the way it used to--it just counts the range now. Even the options about "verbose LOS" and other stuff in the older version is gone. I d/led the latest maps from the VASL map bazaar, fwiw. Is there something else I need to do to get the full LOS functionality?

I have my older Vassal/VASL install on the computer, so I can go back to using that, it's more just curiosity about the latest version.

I think they have removed these options because there were many situations that did not work properly.

Maybe in the future is set back.

Thanks! I found the LOS tool very useful in the beginning, and when I'm rusty (about 6 mos. out of the year ).

Hi John,
Thanks for the post. I didn’t realize you could have two VASSAL installs; now I’m able to play guys who have upgraded as well as those who did not. Thanks!
Not sure if you are aware; you can hit F10 draw the LOS line. Just click on the board to get the counters back (my heart skipped a beat when hitting F10 again didn’t bring back the counters. Yikes!)
Thanks again!
