Default Re: Live Internet Lock \'n Load!

I haven't found help on these two questions in the documentation that came with Vassal. Perhaps this is the wrong place to ask, but I'll give it a try:

1. Has anyone else noticed that it seems hard to control the arrangement of stacks of counters? I'd like to be able to easily keep the right counters over or under each other, but I find myself having to move the whole stack to some empty hexes and rearrange it, then lift it back. I've only played solitaire so far, so it's doable, but it could be irritating or confusing for an Online opp, I suppose. Am I missing some trick in how to manipulate stacks?

2. Also, does anyone know if the module is open to updating by it's author? It might be nice to be able to place counters 'off board' in the empty space in the board window, though not in any particular hex. This could save some shuffling between windows, and create a 'neutral space' for shuffling stack order. Again, am I missing something?

Hi Bamse,

I don't think there is an easier way to shift counters, but it would be nice. I'll ask around.

Sure, feel free to mod the demo all you want. Your suggestions sound like great ones to me.

Best,
Mark

Bamse (and Mark),

Double click on a stack to expand it, then click on the counter you wish to move. Up or down arrow key will take the counter to the top or bottom (respectively) of the stack. To move the counter up or down within the stack, use the right or left arrow key.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, Cam.

BTW, I have Halloween tomorrow. Maybe Friday night?

Best,
Mark
