Is there an engine for android or something in progress?
I’m interested in using it for table top gaming modern navals. The idea being that 90% of the game is hidden movement and search before the missiles and torpedoes start flying and depth charges start dropping. I’m think if we can do the hidden movement on assal, then we can play out the action on the table.
I’ve tried plotting movement on individuml miini maps and then transferring it to the table and its a pain in the arse…
any idea when we might be able to expect this gracious offering? i’m
very new to the idea of vassal so don’t know if it’s already been
discussed or to what extent and what the plans might be.
I don’t like making time estimates for things which are more than a few
weeks away, as they’re invariably wrong. We will release VASSAL 3.2
before October is over. My plan for VASSAL 4 is that we’ll periodically
release demos demonstrating features as they’re implemented. One of my
early goals is to have builds for all platforms we intend to support.
I cannot tell you when you’ll see the first demo, but I can say that it
is the next thing on my list after 3.2 is released.
hey the product develoment where i work is terrible and always behind, and delivering terrible results on top of it. and those guys are full time paid employees! so i’m just very impressed there is a system like this people are developing and maintaining because they enjoy it…
I would also offer up my TF300 as a tester if you still needed more
I’m happy to hear that we’ll have people willing to test builds of
VASSAL 4 on tablets.
Our probelm is not a lack of testers, however. So far as I know, none of
the developers has a tablet. It’s extremely hard to develop for a
platform to which you don’t have immediate access, as that means you
can’t even check whether the binaries you’re building run, let alone run
properly. I imagine that I’ll look into building binaries for Android
early in 2013, at which point I’ll need at least one tablet to test
against. If someone has a tablet they’d like to dontate, that would be
you posted way back in 2012 that you are familiar with “android” and are willing to get an engine running for to get vassal on a tablet (so to say)…
Now we are down about 20% of the new year and I would like to ask, if there is something to report from your side. Never ever heard anymore news about the topic…
I wanted to buy a tablet, but realized that the Vassal-engine is NOT running (any more) on the android system. So I started to look for alternitives. BUT the idea of having my beloved vassal on a tablet would be such an overhelming thing that I would stop searching for alternatives and would instead wait for your result!!
actually, i’ve just realized, i bought a windows 8 netbook a couple of months ago.
seperately, i hate windows 8, and does anyone have any thoughts on how to make it more user friendly for a casual netbook user, or would they recommend installing ubuntu and forgetting about windows all together?
but back to vassal and my netbook, how is vassal looking for windows 8?
