Can you use VASL mapboards in a VASSAL? I have downloaded mapboard zip files from VASL and extracted them to the ‘boards’ folder of VASSAL but when I try to select a board they do not show up.

Any suggestions?

The VASL map files you download (bd1, bd2 etc.) are actually zip files that contain a map image, plus Terrain and LOS information.

If you rename bd1 to bd1.zip and unzip it, you will find one of the files in it is bd01.gif which is the actual map image that can be used as a standard board image.

Thanks very much Brent, that solved it. I had a full head of hair yesterday - now as bald as a cue ball :laughing:
