newbie question

Hallo I’m new to vassal engine. And I have a simple question. Some of zip packed modules after unpacking become not mpmg format file but : files images, buildfile, setup, info. How to open them?

Thus spake “megabyzos”:

Module files are ZIP archives. If you unzip a file you downloaded and
you end up with a buildFile and an images directory, then the file you
started with was a module and shouldn’t have been unzipped in the first

The way to open a module is choose it in the file dialog you get when
you select “File > Open Module…” from VASSAL’s Module Manager.

…and also, to avoid confusion and keep your mods and zips separate - as well as associate the mod files with the Vassal engine - you may want to change the ZIP extension to .vmod
