We are several players to look for a while who is currently responsible or webmaster of the VASSAL CCN MODULE? Any idea somebody?

Michael was the responsible officer, but I think wants to retire (or has retired).

I have been trying to pick up my VASSAL skills enough to maintain, but a development will need a better set of skills than mine currently reach.

Volunteers welcome..:)

TY for the answer Mark.

So I suppose if computer skills are needed and if yourself could'nt do it: I'm sadly the very last to be able to do it so!

That's too bad because there are many players scenarios to be added on Vassal plus some other ideas ...

Well adding scenarios is pretty easy, but the VASSAL setup needs to be done.

Generally I would prefer a central repository of VASSAL setups for fan scenarios (like a Forum on this site), where the file can be downloaded, and loaded in VASSAL. My experience is that scenario designs go through a good deal of tweaking at start, and it would be a hassle to continually update the Module with minor revisions.

Whatever other ideas are I can't give an estimate of.

The big looming issue is the LGB Expansion, and in particular the expanded Waterloo/Borodino maps. Adding a new board is not something I'm ready for.

Also looking to solve the card non-ownership/duplication bug that sometimes happens.

Agree with you on most points. So sad nobody can relay Michael.
I also have several tested scenarios that I would like to add in the fan scenarios file in Vassal.
:huh:
Second point: With the essential agreement of Richard Borg (he already saw it and I would ask him for some last advice and definitive go) and with the support of several CCN "vets": I would like to add a "beta" single deck of 77 or 80 cards in the Vassal Deck choice.

With the scenarios, I guess we could do an update, but not in dribs and drabs.
Gather together VASSAL setups for all the new scenarios you (and others) want included.

With respect to the new card deck, until the VASSAL problem with the existing decks is resolved, I think that would simply multiply the problems.

Plus it seems like it could be something I could really stuff up for what seems to me to be a limited audience.

Hello Mark,

Yes forget the beta deck for the moment (while I disagree with the "limited audience" because I got support plus the audience may increase with the availability of this option online) but I agree that there are already bugs plus I didn't mean to charge you with this work.

About the news scenarios: I made 6 of them (tested and already on ccn.net): 3 Standards and 3 Epics. Two standards are already on Vassal but my 3 Epics and 1 standard are not. If you want we exchange our mails so I can send you the vassal saved files and any info?

Regards - GG
