Confusion w/module downloads

Any module I try to load off this site that is a .mod or .zip will always show up in my folder after download as an MPEG. I have not yet found a way to make these operate properly. When I try to load these modules, Windows Media Player starts and I get an error message telling me why it won’t run on Media Player.

I go to the GMT games website to download the same modules from there, which show as type .vmod, and I have no issues.

If all I wanted to download were the GMT games, I would be happy enough, but I just cannot figure out how to get other modules to show up properly.

I am using the most recent version of VASSAL (3.1.5) for Windows.

Any thoughts?

Just rename the .mod files to .vmod.

The Zip files ‘should’ contain a .mod or .vmod inside them, if so, rename it to .vmod. If not, then just rename the .zip file to .vmod.

You can open any module, regardless of name by first starting up the Vassal Module Manager (Click on the Vassal shortcut instead of double clicking on the module). Then File → Open Module and navigate the the module file.
