    Default Vassal WARMACHINE 4.2 Released

    Hello everyone,

    Just posting to let everyone know that the the VASSAL WARMACHINE & HORDES module has been updated to version 4.2. The module is now compatible with SR2012 scenarios and has model art for Wrath and Domination models that have been released.

    Visit the Vassal WARMACHINE and HORDES forums for the download link and change log.

    >>> VASSAL FORUMS<<<

    I've also re-uploaded a comprehensive getting started guide for the module which you can view here, or alternatively you can access it through the module by navigating to Help>Guide

    >>>VASSAL MODULE GETTING STARTED GUIDE<<<


    Thanks
    Hobo


    A big thanks to Privateer Press for allowing me to continue with the project and support the game we all enjoy.

    Just out of curiosity, how did you find out the new gator beast look like, aka thrullg?

    Thrullgs have been around since the Witchfire trilogy - which I know Hobo's played in, because I was there.* There are pictures and a description in the Monsternomicon.

    Anyway - great work, guys.

    I appreciate how you guys have made the new sprites for everything, but I really despise the new labeling system.

    I used to only have to glance at a model and read its label above its portrait to know what it was, but now I have to hold my cursor over it. It gets really annoying really fast. Especially when the portraits are turned off for whatever reason.

    Haven't tried playing with the new mouseover labels yet, but visually I must say I quite like it. I'd rather mouseover to see the labels then have all the labels overlapping each other and making it impossible to read any.

    That said, if units all had a leader model available to them it'd make that visual recognition a lot easier. As it stands the Replace With function replaces them with the UA commander model, as opposed to a basic unit leader.

    Regardless, VERY excited about this. Thanks for your work Hobo (and your team). Most awesome.

    Leader is very easy, just use the promote status. It adds a little chevron to the model which designates the leader very easily.

    For some reason the download isnt working for me, I click to start the download and it just gives me a pop-up and goes to a blank screen.
    Every breath one takes is an unimaginable blessing, but also an unfathomable curse. Remember each morning when you watch the new sun rise into a hopeful blue sky, and each evening when it sets into a bloody horizon, that there is always two sides to every coin.

    The module's got you covered. Use Status -> promote to add a sergeant's pip to any model. Easy for visual identification of non-UA leaders.

    Woot! About time Ret get's their time in here. Good work as usual in making it, and I'd like to give a tip of the hat to PP for letting these programs exist.

    Awesome, thanks much for the Ret update!
    I tried using it earlier, is anyone else having issues with the back half of the base getting a white overlay once the piece has been moved?

    er, nevermind, thats the new "moved piece" overlay.

    Yay! I got it last night and my wife was happy to see her Retribution in it's full glory rather than merc circles with the graphics turned off.

    The one thing I didn't find though is how to turn on unit command range. Can that be done?

    Something else that is off, which I've just noticed, is that the Phoenix and Griffon have their weapons in the wrong hands. Not really a big deal, but that could mean the difference between a disabled fist or a disabled fire-sword if people get confused (especially since Retribution PDF doesn't exist for everyone to have).

    I've played my first game with the new version. Triple A + is what I give it. Love that there are sprites for Rashet and the warhog. The retribution models are super sweet and I love how you decided to show the force field.

    Thanks, looks amazing. But I don't have a clue how to start to play.

    Anyone got a decent guide link?

    I have it installed and opened and can get models on the field but thats about it...

    I'd like to second this one. I have been reading through the 'Help' Guide for both Vassal and the Module but I am unable to get it going properly

    This is awesome for busy parents that don't get to leave the house to play much. THANKS PP.

    I'm buying two more Arcuarii, Molik Karn, and probably Prime MKII this week.

    And great work Hobo.

    Anyone that would like help learning to play Vassal just PM any player letting them know you are a beginner and asking for help with a demo game. Ask players with a blue ! next to their name first as they are looking for a game. Most people will be glad to help out and 15 point games don't take very long, especially if it is just caster & beasts/jacks
