Ok - I've finally loaded up Vassal and tried using it to play the WaW module.

First impressions - I hate Vassal. yuk

I can't do a blinking thing with it.

If you've got 2 counters in a hex how can you select just one of them?

If I leave the mouse over a stack I get a pop-up zoom window showing the counters in the stack but I've tried all manner of mouse clicks and key clicks and I still can't get it to select a single counter in the stack.

Can anyone out there who knows put this Vassal-sufferer out of their misery?

Also: I'm just trying to setup some scenarios. How can you remove a counter from the map? I can't even do that either.

Thanks,

Bry

Double click a stack to change from a straight pile to selectable units. At this point the pile will be slightly staggered and you can click the lower part of the counter to select just one unit.

To remove units. Alt + E eliminates.

Others will be more able to point you to help sheets etc.

Tow truck?

I think ALT-E will do the trick, but it's been awhile so I could be wrong...

No, as far as I can tell, nothing removes wreck markers once placed as a result of eliminating a unit.

A little "glitch" - hopefully someone can look at it eventually.

To remove a wreck marker:

Press and hold the shift key, then select the wreck marker with the mouse pointer. Right click on the mouse button and select delete.
