Folks,

I've created a basic Vassal Module for Descent that would let folks play across the net as long as all players owned the game and expansions being used. http://www.vassalengine.org

You can build the quest map using tiles and stock it with items, obstacles, treasures, monsters, etc using a drag and drop interface.

All of the tokens and pieces are present as are all the player decks with only the names of the cards.

I know this isn't optimal, but I've heard the this is a requirement from FFG for any vassal module for their games to protect their copyrights and IP.

Does anyone know who I need to send it to at FFG to get it blessed off for general release?

I can't believe your head exploded. If your head explodes, you'll never make it on BGG.

Folks,

I haven't posted the module to the Vassal site yet as I am still waiting for approval from FFG. There has been no response at all.

In the mean time, if you want it you can find it here:

Feedback is welcome and encouraged.

Pat.

Hey, I picked up this module to check it out, but I can't seem to get the solo dungeon deck to draw. Any idea what I might be doing wrong? I am using the newest version of Vassal.

Nathan,

I ran it with vassal 3.1.2 tonight and it seems to work for me.

Here's the play-by-play
- start vassal
- open the Descent module
- start new game offline
- select solitaire setup
- poke Finish
- view hands, choose Solo
- decrease the zoom by 1 ( so you can see everything )
- drag a Dungeon Deck card from the deck onto the empty black square to the right of the deck.

You should see the Dungeon Deck card text now.

Send me a pm if you still can't get it working and we'll debug it further.

Hi Patrick ...

I have realized the Warrior Knights Vassal Module one year ago ... with the approval of FFG .

The FFG policy is clear : you must mask cards / text to prevent players to use a Vassal Module without owning a real gamebow IRL ...

In your case .. i don't know ...

Good luck ..

They are under Trappings ( click on the rubble obstacle icon ) on the "Doors" tab.

Glad you like it.

Have fun - Pat.

hey, im having hard time getting it to work properly as well, have it loading and such, but dont have access to some of the decks you guys are talking about.
what does it mean when you cursor over the peice and it says offboard.
and how do i mark what perment skill cards my character i see the empty white square, but cant seem to type or add anything there.
i have all expansions to the game except the new ocean one.
if anyone wants to chat about descent, or play games over the net, add me to msn.
im jamesharder@live.co.uk

hope to hear from you.

p.s. i found the help file in the game, but when i go to solo play, and see the player hand where it says dungeon deck, escape at 50! i cant figure out how to access any card the game is talking about.
and when you have to pick what player you are, so you can lay tokens on the sheet, theres no option for the solo mode, so i cant lay any tokens on it. how do you do this?

p.s.s ok, i found it out, nad ill leave previous notes so people can see, if they had same problems as me for this issue. i got the dungeon deck to work, i had to go to file multiplayer, and it seemed to allow the dungeon deck, but the solitare dident, not sure why, or what the diff is. anyway. if anyone has any input on my previous comments, please reply. and i would like to play games with anyone that would like to as well.

Looks like Patrick hasn't been on for a bit, so will ask in the hopes that someone here can help.

I started a solo and chose Hero 1 and 2. Then I clicked on Draw Cards to get my heroes and it says it put them in my hand.. but I don't see it in my hand.
I view all the hands and I see the char mat, but nothing is on it. Also, you can't seem to drag the Stamina/Health icons to the mats like other Vassel games.

Is it just still in the early stages or should I not worry about it?

I've created a Descent 2nd Edition Vassal Module using the tilesystem graphics. It could probably be used even for an offline map editor instead of tilesystem. It even has a nice path creating system, just move the figures and it leaves a trail.



I'd like to try to get a game going with Vassal and some sort of voice chat. I think we could get a good game in within an hour. Here's the thread for it: Descent 2 Vassal Module

Let me know what you guys think. Can't wait for the rest of the tiles.
