Can't recompress a module - not a valid VASSAL module


I am using a mac.
I edited a module by renaming it with .zip.
Then compressing the folder with Mac compress utility, replacing .zip with .vmod
VASSAL keeps on telling me its is not a valid VASSAL module, with both open and import functions.

I tried compressing the folder from a Windows Virtual machine. Same behavior.

At the end I needed to instal 7zip in Windows, then I archived the folder content in a zero compression archive in a zip format.

Any idea what is wrong with my Mac compress utility ?


I think I know that one. Did you compress the complete folder? I think you must compress everything below the module folder, not the folder itself. Had that same problem some time ago, the solution was somewheer along these lines. Nothing to do with your Mac :slight_smile:
