The module is considerably larger than previous versions due to more scenarios and functionality. Log files are typically 500Kb+ in size which may be a consideration if saving many log files on a free cloud service. The basics of game play will be familiar to users of earlier versions and the module’s Help menu includes further guidance.
Not backward compatible with earlier versions, except for reading v4 log files and watching games.
Requires Vassal v3.6.7 or later.
Block view preference (Icons or Number) will not persist until Vassal v3.6.8.
