Hey, I've been enjoying the VASSAL module for Conflict of Heroes, but I have run across a couple of things I don't understand. I was wondering if anyone else may have an idea what's going on with the following:

1. When I (the German side) drag a card into my hand, the text display shows my opponent the name of the card. When he (the Russian side) drags a card into his hand, I don't see the name of the card.

2. When I mouse over one of the hexes, all the chits in that hex are displayed twice.

Thanks in advance.

Do you know which version of the module you are using? The latest is 1.14 I uploaded a few weeks ago. In earlier versions the card text being shown was a problem but that's been fixed now (along with some other fixes and enhancements)

I've never seen the 2nd issue. Getting the latest version of the module may fix it, but it could be more of a system configuration problem I'm not aware of. What version of vassal do you use? The module was written using 3.13 of vassal, I haven't tested it on later versions, and earlier versions will probably exibit some issues.

Looks like I downloaded the module on 4/8. I don't know how to tell what version of the module it is, though. Any ideas?

Also, If I download a new version of the module, is it possible to load a saved game from the version I have, or would I need to start the firefight over?

If you go to the help menu on the top toolbar, there is an 'About Module' entry. That will bring up a window with info about the module and current version of vassal.

4/8 is definitely a much older version. I uploaded the latest version late May/early June. Saved games will probably work with the latest version, but any errors you saw before will still be there. Saved games hang onto the oldest version of the units, cards and other pieces so don't reflect any updates to them.

I don't know if this will help, but a new version (3.1.7) of Vassal came out last week.

We changed over to the newest versions of VASSAL and the module last week, and the problems I described above seem to have disappeared.
