Request: Make VASSAL understand and support a command line for generating a screen shot of a VSAV file (or the last state in a VLOG file).
vassal --screenshot --file mysave.vsav --output imagename.png
Today I can create a screenshot manually within VASSAL. However, if I had a command line option, I could create a small script that monitored our shared Dropbox folder and generated a “latest state” screenshot in the same folder, whenever a new file arrived. That way I would always have access to a current image of the game map.
I could then use my phone to sit and ponder my next move, while not needing to have a laptop/PC with VASSAL running.
Imagine being in a boring meeting - and instead of listening to Bob speaking at length about unimportant sales figures, I could be planning an epic attack on the West Front - and still look like I am just checking an important e-mail.
Thanks for great app!
