Converting VASSAL 3.0 mods to 3.1x mods?

Hello again!

I have been working on a mod designed in VASSAL 3.0. At some stage I will make a VASSAL 3.1x version of it.

Is there a process I should follow to convert my 3.0 mod in to a 3.1x mod? Or do you just open it up in 3.1x and save it?

I noticed that when I opened up my 3.0 mod using 3.1x I saw some odd messages. Are there some functions that orginally created in 3.0, now need to be edited (extra information added) in 3.1x so that they are fully defined?

While I am here, may as well ask where I can view a FULL list of all the improvements/updates in VASSAL 3.1x?

Cheers

Bullman

There have been raltively few changes to the actual module structure. In general, a 3.0 module should open and play unchanged on 3.1.

There has, however, been a huge overhaul in the way Vassal and Module bugs are detected and reported. Many bugs in both Vassal and individual modules where being inadvertantly suppressed and are now reported.

What messages? Please try the just released beta-5 version, it has further updates to the error reporting functionality.

Not as far as I am aware.

Check out Joel’s notice on the beta 5 release in the forum, it has a list.

Ok thanks Brent.

I will report back the messages if they come up again (I have since just been editing the mod in 3.0).

Joel’s notice on the Beta 5 release in the forum is what I was refering to…at the end, after listing several features etc, it says
"* Many, many other minor improvements, and scores of bug fixes. "

It was these that I was hoping to get more info on.

Thanks

Thus spake “Bullman”:

If you have no custom Java classes in your module, that should be sufficient.

What were the messages?

The 3.1.0-beta4 release notes list changes from 3.0.17 to 3.1.0-beta4:

The 3.1.0-beta5 release notes list changes from 3.1.0-beta4 to 3.1.0-beta5:

If you want (a lot) more detail, you could look at all of the change logs
for the trunk in our source repository between 2784 and 4409, but I don’t
recommend it.
