Any of you e-gamers have a preference for online play of AtA?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

PBeM.

Maybe some solitaire play too when the table is already full of something else.

n.b. I have not used Zun Tsu, so I cannot comment about that module.

Under most circumstances, I prefer CyberBoard for PBeM; it will flag any inconsistencies between your board and the initial position of the latest move file, and this provides a critical check on avoiding the bad news that, after a half dozen exchanges, you and your opponent have gotten out of synch.

However, in this particular case, the CyberBoard module appears to use the original graphic files. Normally, that's a good thing (well, at least a pretty thing) but because CyberBoard does not have scalable graphics (you must choose between full scale and half scale), it may happen that the graphics require a lot of scrolling back and forth at the resolution of your particular monitor.

That's the situation I find myself in. I will probably be giving my preference to the VASSAL module, not my usual choice.
