Ver 1.12

Took down the 1.11 module, 101AbD mortars were not fixed in that version. The Note below still applies to any file made with 1.10 and older.

COMPATIBILITY NOTE: Due to the name change of the module, not the file name but the name that appears in Vassal Library window, saved logs and files will have to be manually selected in order to be opened. Vassal thinks they do not belong to this module. If you manually use the File, Open and browse to where you saved file folder you can select the file you want. The module will pop a message stating that this file appears to have been created with a different module\game. Just close it and ignore it. After the file opens use the Tools:Refresh option to update the counters in the saved file. After you save it once the issue disappears.

Both players should have the same version of the module otherwise issues will occur. When looking for a live game you will only see those that have the new module. Once again both players need to be using the same module.

Changes: Corrected US mortar units so that they have the show range right click function. Changed all of the leaders with a replacement side so that the show command range highlight will reflect the correct range depending on if it is the original leader or the replacement. Removed the old Assault window, not needed, it was for the 1.1 version of the game. Some other tweaks and clean ups.

ver 1.10

COMPATIBILITY NOTE: Due to adding a border around the map any vlog or vsav files loaded from previous versions will have all the counters shifted. They will be shifted by the same amount so if you band-select, i.e. click and drag to select all the counters, and then click and drag one of the stacks to its correct hex, all will be shifted to their correct hexes. If you have trouble doing this or don't feel comfortable doing it email me a vsav of your game and I'll do it for you.
