Module talk:Memoir '44

From Vassal


Question: I have a rather stupid question that affects playability a lot that I can't find an answer on the internet: How to rotate the board when you play 'the top side'?!?

Answer: it is not possible. It is one of the limitation of VASSAL 3 that boards can't be viewed from different viewpoints for different players. The Axis player always has to play 'up-side-down'.

Question: Now I have a rather stupid question. I've downloaded the newest module and the Western Front scenarios but I'm not making the connection on how to load scenarios once the module is launched. Sorry if I'm doing this wrong but I'm unsure of where to go on this. Thanks. Dave posts...

Answer: Do not use the VASSAL wizard. Scenarios do not show up there. If the wizard opens close it. Then go to the File menu and select Choose Scenario...

Question: I have created a scenario that wasn't in any of the module extensions. How do I make it playable by two sides via email; currently either side can log out and back in as the other side and see each others cards? With the already included scenarios this is impossible.

Answer: Don't use the same VASSAL password for both players.

Question: How do I replace the current deck in a campaign with a different one? For example, if I'd like to use the Breakthrough deck on a normal-sized map?

Answer: This feature was called "Variant Decks". When creating the v10.9 update these decks created a lot of trouble when updating the scenario database, and it was chosen to remove this feature instead (see Release Notes for v10.9 below). It is not currently planned to re-add this feature. It is not supported with modules v10.9 and newer to use an alternate deck, but you could use the old v10.8r6 module, which you can find below.

Question: I've created a custom scenario and as I was saving it to be used later, I realized that I hadn't added a sideboard with a command deck to the initial board. Is there a way to re-run the board maker to add my missing sideboard, or will I need to make another new scenario and manually copy everything over?

Answer: You will have to re-run the board maker and copy everything over. This is a limitation of VASSAL and the module cannot do anything about this.

Saving and playing a new scenario

Hi, I have created a new scenario, but I can't find how to save it and to make it available to play. Could someone tell me how to do it ? Thank you
