I'll try that first. I dont really want to create an account for another site just to download Vassal. Gaming aside, have you had any problems with using vassal?


You don't need an account to download it. Vassal itself (the module, not the site) may require you to create an account of sorts, but that's a good thing. In any case, even if for some reason you have to join a site, it's quite easy to either unsubscribe from their emails as soon as you get the first one, or delete your account and keep the downloaded file.

I haven't had any issues with Vassal. It was slow to load a few weeks ago one time, but that wasn't the case today and it could have just been this computer.

Yeah, i downloaded it from the link you provided on page one, and during the setup it tells me that it needs java, but I've got adobe. I'm assuming that it wont run with adobe.

Hmmm that I can't help you with. Should be easy to get Java as well since it's so common.

yeah but I don't want it to conflict with adobe which I already have installed. I'll try setting it up later today if I have time.

Alright, I've contacted bj_o, so hopefully I'll get a response, which I can relay if I do. A shot in the dark, but it's something I had been meaning to do.

Go for it!

Unfortunately, spending the extra 10 minutes to actually find bj_o's email wasn't worth it, since the email address is dead.

I'll go through youtube for now, but if anyone has a deviant art account, that might be a better way of contacting him. We'll see how things go.

I'm still hesitant to set it up because of the situation with Java and Adobe. If I get it up and going, sure I'd be down.

Just contact me on Skype, Ben. I'm usually not doing anything important, short of work Sundays through Tuesdays.

Get it! I have both and Vassal works fine.

Alright, I finally got back on Skype - I last contacted you on 11/26. Laughing

You're good:

Download Vassal, the free, open-source boardgame engine. Vassal runs on Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and any other system which has a Java JRE. Find your operating system below for instructions for downloading and installing Vassal.


I'm busier this week and next week than I thought I'd be, in addition to that short cumulative game I'm working on.

BUMP

After a considerable delay, I have finally gotten back to VASSAL!! There shall be no more delays. No excuses. Only Pirates. Laughing

I urge everyone to download Vassal and play around with it. It is quick and easy to download, it works for all different systems (refer to the post directly above this one), and it worked on my other computer where both Adobe and Java are downloaded.

For maximum ease of... everything, here is all you need:

This file contains both VASSAL and the Pirates module for easy download.


If you'd rather go directly to the sources, here they are:
http://www.vassalengine.org/

You can go to File-Preferences-Chat Window-Chat Window Font and change the font to Windlass!!

For others like me who aren't tech-savvy:

From Vassal, you must use File>Open Module> (wherever you have bj_0's .zip file)>the .zip folder. Vassal should recognize and load it.


And for reference:
The old VASSAL module thread.

I'm going to work on contacting B.J. If I can't find another route, I'll make a deviantart account and try there.

(I'm going to keep posting in this thread. Idea )
