I’m using Vassal version 2.7 on a mac with Java 1.4.2_12.
I have successfully loaded the modules for Ancients and Solitaire Caesar, but when I try to load the module for The Legend of Robin Hood, I get a message which says ‘info’ not found in The legend of Robin Hood.mod
What am I doing wrong? And how do I fix this problem? This is my first few hours of using Vassal, so I am probably making a basic mistake.
Hope someone can help with this as I love this game.
The ‘info’ file contains information used by commercial modules. However, versions earlier than 3.0 require the file to be present even if the module is not commercial. Modules created with version 3.0 and later won’t have this file, so you’ll get this error opening them with v2.9.9.
Bottom line is that when running v2.9, you’re limited to modules created with v2.9 and earlier. That’s just what you’d expect, although the error message is definitely more cryptic than it ought to be.
