Ah, there was a typo. 'S' instead of 'z'.

I have seen many FFG games listed there like Tanhauser. If that one hasn't gotten yanked then maybe this one won't be. Besides FFG would be foolish IMO to go around stomping on this games player community. TOI is constantly compared to Memoir 44 and Conflict of Heroes and in both cases gameboxes for each have been made and have not been pulled. Those respective companies have the wisdom to know that Vassal and Zuntzu actually boost player interest in buying their product. FFG will see the light on this I'm sure.

Re: Some of you may be intertested in this
Jesse, of course you are right and i agree. But from what i heard/read before FFG usually doesn´t want to have their games released as Vassal/ZunTzu/Cyberboard-Versions. Maybe they changed their minds about that which would be a good thing

Re: Some of you may be intertested in this
After playing Combat Commander on vassal with a friend of mind who owns the game, I ended up buying the whole collection. I must thank vassal for providing me with my purchase decision. I believe vassal and other platforms that allow online play is a good thing.

Re: Some of you may be intertested in this
I can answer questions about how to play this on Zuntzu. Just private message me. Also I'm looking to do some playing myself.

Re: Some of you may be intertested in this
Oh and another thing. At the moment I included only 4 scenarios to start with. I choose them based on popularity and reputation for being fun and balanced accept for one, Crossroads. I included that one because I do like it even though it is unbalanced. After playing it 3 times I decided removing 2 Shermans would probably be a good balance fix. For my next update I want some suggestions on what you guys would like to have for news scenarios. As you make your requests please include your observations on balance and propose your idea on how best to tweak it. My intent when adding new scenarios is to make improvements to those that need them rather than to just add them into my project in a broken state. So if we can as a community agree on a fan based fix for certain scenarios I will add them in as revised editions. Sound good to you guys?

Re: Some of you may be intertested in this
I will soon be adding more scenarios and the expansions. I have delayed doing these two things for two reasons. First I did not want to invest to much time only to find my effort stomped on by FFG. Seems possible they may finally be relaxing their policy of opposing most PC module conversions. Cross your fingers. And the second reason is a new woman in my life. As soon as things settle in I'll work on Days of the Fox next.

Re: Zuntzu module is now available
Changed subject line from "Some of you may be intertested in this." to "Zuntzu module now available." The need to be discreet was probably unnecessary. FFG may finally be learning that Zuntzu and Vassal actually help sell games as James pointed out above.

I did the same with MANY boardgames (i.e. C&C:A) and buyed the whole collection... appetite comes with eating!

P.S. TOI + DOF + NOR Vassal modules v.1.7 just released... I own the scenario modules too but chose not to release them on Vassal site yet, unless FFG officially approves it.

EDIT: I fixed several bugs and uploaded the files again!

Re: Zuntzu module is now available
"Appetite comes with eating." That's so true.


I had a major setback the other daysoblue I had a lot of scenarios all set up ready to go and then I made some additional changes to the base layout and code. What I didn't know at the time was that by doing so I made all of my scenario setups incompatible with the newer version. Lesson learned. At this point, I'm so burned out by the many hours I put into this that I think I'm just going to release my next update without the setups ready to go. This will require players to grab their own cards and squads and place them for themselves. This will add maybe 5 minutes to the setup time. Not really that bad, but I really wanted things to be perfect. But the good news is that once you have pulled all the items you need and set them by the side of the board in your HQ area you can save this setup so you don't have to again.

Re: Zuntzu module is now available
My future plans will be to add in Normandy expansion stuff, and the ability to create your own scenarios with any of the expansion map boards. This will work like a deluxe TOI editor. Players could then share these save files with others to enjoy their creations. Another bonus I foresee is that creators will not be limited by the physical boards on hand. You could for instance make a map with 3 1A boards in it if you wanted.
