New Features in 3.1.0

  • Improved room management: Invite and kick players from locked rooms.

  • Improved installation: For Windows, a real Windows installer/uninstaller.
    For Macs, a single-file disk image. Download, click, and install.

  • File associations: Files with .vmod, .vsav, and .vlog extensions are
    now associated with VASSAL (on Windows and Macs). Double-click a module
    to load it in VASSAL!

  • New Module Manager frontend: The Module Manager displays all of your
    modules and save/log files, giving you a convenient way to organize
    them all.

  • Improved memory management: VASSAL now uses significantly less memory
    for various graphics-related tasks. Heap sizes may be set from within
    VASSAL via the Preferences.

  • Improved zooming: Zoom your maps to whatever size you want.

  • Aide de Camp 2 module importer: Convert any ADC2 module to a VASSAL
    module with one click.

  • Many, many other minor improvements, and scores of bug fixes.

Help us test

This is a beta release, and may still contain some rough edges. Should
you find any problems/oddities/bugs, please tell us so that we can fix
them before VASSAL 3.1.0 is released. Also, if you’ve had problems with
3.0.x or a previous 3.1.0 beta, please check and let us know if those
problems are resolved in 3.1.0-beta7.

It looks like SourceForge updated their site and those links no longer work. The link for the Windows installer version is now: … indows.exe

I assume the others are similar.


Thus spake “asyncritus”:

The links work fine for me. The URL you cite is one of the SF mirrors.
