Just a couple quick pointers to those trying out the module:

1) the module enforces all rules, I just ask you to AVOID dragging resources and villains from one place to another, even on the same window, because that will BREAK the game as is (this is a current Vassal limitation: as soon as possible I will update the module to automatically have undraggable cards);

2) just remember to left click or right click on things to get things done (e.g. right click on a hero to set him/her ready/supporting or to send to Manhattan or to troubleshoot etc, left click on his/her card in the combat map to secretly select combat power or to activate combat abilities etc)

3) while the game text/log is in English, all the cards are in Italian only at the moment... please send me scans of cards in any other language, especially English, and I will quickly put them on to give every player independent language choice.. even raw (but readable) scans of cards side by side will suffice.. I will do the trimming and rescaling!

I uploaded on Youtube video tutorials for this module, covering the basics of the interface. Find the links to them on the http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module:Marval_Heroes page.

Apologies for the bad audio/video quality, boring/improvised script, bad voice etc..

Very many thanks for putting up with so much effort, barbanera.
Great modules, great tutorial videos.
I wish rules/events for "behind the scenes" parts of the game, such as Story Track and certain support actions where plot points and resource cards are awarded, were a bit more developed.
Grazie.

Thxs for your feedback, Ivan.

Can you be more specific about what I should improve on? I thought I covered all rules, but I might be wrong. Which ones did I forget? Or do you mean the rules/events are covered but I should increase/improve the log reports?

There might very well be still bugs I need to fix, and any specifics will greatly help me.

Thanks.

I was using vassal to play this and when I would try and activate a backup effect it did not work. Then when I tried tp roll the dice after discarding a villain card the option was greyed out.

Seems like having vassal know the rules is problematic. But on a good note, seems also like some kind of AI would be possible.

Can you be more specific as to which backup effect and/or villain and villain ability would not work? Also, which phase was it (defending, attacking, right after rolling, after a KO, etc etc). Any specifics to track down any possible bug would greatly help.

Also, make sure you use Vassal 3.2.0 if you can, as problems were noticed with Vassal 3.1.x and MH 1.2 (on the other hand 1.2 is strongly reccomended as it fixed numerous bugs).

Vassal 3.2.0 should be officially out any days now, but the latest beta builds can be downloaded from the Vassal website.
