    Vehicles/ordnance can now be imported from a VASL scenario file

    The program can now analyze a .vsav file and create entries for the vehicles and ordnance it finds, which means you no longer have to enter this information twice (once for the VASL scenario, once for vasl-templates).

    The suggested workflow is now:

    • Set up the VASL scenario, with the boards and counters.
    • Analyze the VASL scenario, to automatically create entries for vehicles and ordnance.
    • Enter the other scenario details e.g. the scenario name and date, Victory Conditions and SSR's, setup instructions.
    • Update the VASL scenario file, to automatically create labels for all the scenario details and vehicles/ordnance.

    Other features and bug fixes

    • Added special handling for American Ordnance Note C.
    • Fixed a problem that could sometimes prevent new labels from being added if an existing label contained certain HTML.
    • Stopped parameters from extras templates being included in scenario save files (which would cause a warning the next time they were opened).
    • Changed the default behaviour for scenario images to download them from the internet.
    • Changed the default behaviour after updating a VASL scenario file to overwrite the original source file.
    • Fixed a resizing problem in Chromium for the "edit vehicle/ordnance" dialog.
    • Updated the help and other documentation.
    • Updated the example scenarios.
    • Minor UI changes.

    IMPORTANT: There have been changes to the template files. If you have created your own template pack, please update them to reflect these changes.

    Images in scenarios can now be downloaded from the internet

    This means that you no longer need to have this program running before loading scenarios into VASSAL and, in particular, you can play these scenarios with someone who doesn't have this program.

    Note that VASSAL is slow loading images, so there may be a delay when loading a scenario, and it will look like VASSAL is hung, but be patient, and it will eventually come back.

    Integration with ROAR

    You can now search ROAR for scenarios, and use the information there to get your scenario setup started. You will also be shown the latest results each time you open the scenario in vasl-templates.

    Other features and bug-fixes

    • Fixed a problem that was stopping images from showing properly in VASSAL when using certain versions of Java.
    • Tightened up validation and error handling of server configuration.
    • Added extras templates to generate snippets for a grid, and for Victory Points.
    • Made the background color configurable in the Turn Track shading extras template.
    • Handle opening external links in a new browser window properly.
    • The font used in HTML snippets can now be changed.
    • Custom flags can now be specified as a URL.
    • Read the nationalities file correctly from a custom template pack.
    • Minor UI changes.

    Adding Chapter H notes to scenarios

    Labels for Chapter H vehicle/ordnance notes and multi-applicable notes can now be added to scenarios.

    NOTE: Because this is copyrighted content, the data files are not included in releases, and you will need to set them up yourself.

    Adding your own pictures to scenarios

    You can now include your own images in scenarios e.g. the graphic from the scenario card, or a CG reinforcement chart.

    Support for VASL extensions

    Currently, only KGS is recognized, but more will be included in later releases.

    Images of snippets can now be created, instead of the raw HTML

    This is most useful when combined with the Chapter H notes; you can now assemble these snippet images into a word processor and print it out, to get a single-page cheat sheet for all the vehicles and ordnance in a scenario. Very handy, even if you're not using VASL!

    Other changes and bug-fixes

    • Optimized image generation.
    • Minor UI changes.
