Ale, I've just played a game with Michal and I lost. There should be something wrong in the new module. Please fix it! Ok joking apart: the game experience improved a lot. The card draw button in the player window, the star that designates the active player, the auto-casualties inflicted to units moved in the victory banner track... all little things that make the module simpler and more intuitive to play. And the guy who made the transparent terrain tiles should be a genius.

I have to admit I was petrfied when I first read this message.
After second and third reading I got the joke.

I'm so happy to hear that. These kind of feedback represent the main goal for this update.

You can bet on it.
Great job!

Now, this is nice. Actually, it was Michal to suggest to try the new module. We started to play and my first three ranged rolls against his medium infantry were three blue triangles... I suspect at that point the idea that something was wrong with the new module was seriously creeping in his mind I somehow felt it. Whence the joke. Maybe too cryptic (sorry!). Michal is a great player. He used to beat me also with the old module. So we can take my defeat as a test that the new module works properly.

My regular PBEM partner and I are on our third game with the new module. Everything works great. While I may be in the minority in liking the old style non-3D blocks better where everything was the same size, the whole module feels so fresh. And the improved card-drawing is definitely my favourite new feature. Oh, also love how the module marks a unit with a blue "fired" marker when you choose a new attacking unit.

Haha, I really laughed when I read Giulio's comment That was great test and great game I really like the new module and will try to convince everybody to start using it ASAP

PS. The first three 1d rolls with medium really got me scared but then it was normal rolling

It was a real pleasure to see my scenarios 'alive' in this gorgeous format! meeple

And I could do some fancy things, like for example place a given starting card in each player's hand in Thermopylae!

FYI, the scenarios are the 20 in this file plus my view of Troy.

OK guys,
I've indexed all 486 maps inside scenario chooser".

By now you can see filters, scenario names, date, banners but also map picture, statistics from website (with direct link "view online").

Sadly the only one available and already converted is MMxx.

Please let me know if somebody can help converting them all.
Grazie
Ale

Ale,
the scenario chooser doesn't work properly. When I select a scenario I get

- EXCEPTION DOWNLOAD ERROR: java.io.FileNotFoundException = /tmp001.jpg (Permission denied)

and no image is displayed. I'm in Linux so maybe a Java problem...

On your system "java.io.tmpdir" returns a path without a trailing separator. So instead of /tmp/001.jpg it tries to write /tmp001.jpg, which is not allowed (permission denied).

I will fix and send a new version to Alessandro.

I thought java was more consistently implemented... anyway glad you nailed it down and thanks for your constant support, Bart.

OK guys... I have to admid that I'm completely scared and frightened by Jim Duncan scenarios (about 150).
They are definitely "bigger and stronger" than me!
I don't think I can make it on my own (while remaining sane).
If someone can help.. this is the right moment!

Grazie
Alessandro

One thing I've noticed in the new module that I'm hoping is just a setting that can be turned off is the logging of every unit that gets ordered. I see no benefit of that in the text log as we can see them perfectly with the little grey disks, and it really clogs up the text log. I'm wondering if I've changed a setting on my end by accident as I don't remember seeing this before.
