Hello Everyone,

Seems like this deserves a thread of its own. Re-posting the following from another thread:

I had received permission last summer to work on a VASSAL module for this fine game but my available free time ran out before the artwork got in my hands. I really wanted to use more than just scans of my copy of the game. With that window of opportunity closed I had to shelve the project for a while. I'm now trying to get this going again.

Version 0.0.1 of the module is posted:

http://www.vassalengine.org/community/index.php?option=com_v...

Mr. Dingley (Compass Games) I hope you will allow posting of these Work In Progress modules as I develop this. If not please notify me and I will delete it. (NOTE: Ken responded to this in CSW and gave his okay.)

I've posted notes in the wiki on said page for the work done so far. No units yet but it is coming along.

Oh, if you are a RSOtR fan and have not yet checked out the newest entry, Storming the Reich I suggest you do so immediately.

http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@@.1dd395f2/0

I'll post in here as work continues.

Wow, how did I miss this question? Sorry sir.

Nearly complete.

I plan to post the module version 1.0 tomorrow, if I can finish as I expect to.

I'll post in here.

PS Aaaahh, I hadn't subscribed to this thread. Thought that would happen automatically ... since I created it. Oh well. I have been posting updates over on ConSimWorld, my preferred location. Can see all the updates here:

http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@802.Lmuwbv4Jcuw.66@.1dd0...

It has taken me a long time to do this. Very sorry for the delay. I think the result is high quality though.

The module is ready for play.

Be sure to check the VASSAL web site for updates. I always post in CSW as well and will try to get information in to this thread also.

Go here for the module, until the VASSAL web site begins accepting uploads again:

**REMOVED**
**SEE VASSAL SITE**

Looking forward to your comments.

While late to the party, the Vassal stuffs really helps my limited space for this game, which requires 2 maps laid out all the time! (Note: I could have the space but it would be stretched to the limit - no other things can be put on the table but the maps.)
