This isn't me, this is General Creighton Abrams, the man who took over MACV after Westmoreland. A genius, innovator and American hero in the truest sense.

Hi All,

How is the VASSAL module for this (for those who have played)? Any comments? Is the functionality good?

Thanks,

Pat

Spooky.
I *just* loaded it up today, went to try it and it only sort of works.

The Battle for Germany and Southern Front maps appear to be compromised in some manner (don't load at all) , although the Arctic & Persian maps are available in a sidebar-kind-of-thing.
I get this text:

Bad Data in Module: Image not found TTWW - PG - Map 200DPI_V2.png

Now, I know the image is in there because it's visible in the map selection screen. Not sure what occurred after that.

Hmmm....I'll eyeball it later...

Works great. Had some early art issues. Don't forget ctrl key when trying to remove markers.

There's two versions, but this one is top-notch:

I tried a VASSAL module of this once, several years go, but the map picture was so massive that the VASSAL engine choked on it after some play. At least it looked like it - scrolling map was really slow, and at some point parts of the map did not load anymore. Maybe adding a few gigs of memory with -Xmx to the java parameters would help with that.

The Cyberboard version, however, worked really well.

The current vassal module is fantastic. It does have some trivial flaws (the one with the Romanian chits can be a headache) but is much better than its predecessor.
