NOTE: my intent is not to overly pressure the release of the vassal module here.

As I lack local opponents, I eagerly await the vassal module and instead of posting in each month's vassal signup, I thought we could start /keep a running list of folks looking to PBEM once the module is released.

I will start us off.

Looking for an opponent to play the campaign version. I am okay with trying either side.

Cheers,
Paul

There's an error in the Vassal module from what I can see. The "Hide CP Blocks" buttons in the menubar area seem to have issues ....

1. Both button's text is "Hide CP Blocks" when one should be "AP"
2. They are mapped to CTRL H instead of CTRL F (flip). Not sure why that is. I don't see any effect on the blocks on the map when clicking those buttons right now (in either solitaire or 2 player modes). oops, using older (testing) version of Vassal, this is okay now (the CTRL-H visibly works).

I'm tinkering a bit to make sure, and then sending an email to Joel to see what's up.

I also try using the "Send to used" command on the aircraft and they disappear from the game map, and don't go to the respective players forces window in the Used spot. I don't honestly know where they go right now.

I fixed the errant labeling on buttons. Will upload eventually. Waiting to see if more significant bugs show up in the next 24 hours or so.

The HIDE Blocks buttons do not work when signed in as SOLO. The command to FLIP Blocks is ONLY available to SOLO and you will have to do that block-by-block. HIDE works when you are signed in as AP or CP player.

Sending tiles to USED or AVAILABLE sends them to Solitaire Player Display when signed in as SOLO.

Hope this helps clear the fog.

I'm interested in trying out the shorter scenarios. Probably can't commit to a full campaign.
