488 5/17/2019 8:36:00 PM Spring 1943 Allied Message You may already know this, but I recently found the best way to exchange vassal files is don't bother saving your opponents' files, just open them with vassal. Watch your opponents moves, then if its good start your own, save, send to opponent, rinse and repeat.
487 5/17/2019 8:23:00 PM Spring 1943 Allied Message File sent, so now we should just be able to open each others move files, and pass them back and forth.

482 5/17/2019 7:52:00 PM Spring 1943 Axis Message Just sent it to you.
481 5/17/2019 7:46:00 PM Spring 1943 Allied Message Most likely, your computer doesn't recognize those file extensions yet. They need to be associated with Cyberboard for a first time.
480 5/17/2019 7:44:00 PM Spring 1943 Allied Message I dont have a Vassal file at all for our game.

I sent you a .gam and a .gbx file, which should be associated with Cyberboard if you have it installed

So if you download my 2 files. You should be able to open up Cyberboard, and try to load my .gam file, then it will ask you for the corresponding gamebox file, which is the other 4.0 .gbx file I sent. That should be all you need to see our current state of the game.

Otherwise, you will have to send me you Vassal files.

473 5/17/2019 7:21:00 PM Spring 1943 Allied Message Oh, well in that case, lets do Cyberboard.

If you want to start using for this game, I can send you all my files, and you'll just have to look over everything and confirm my map is correct.

Or like I said, we could implement next game. Up to you.
472 5/17/2019 7:20:00 PM Spring 1943 Axis Message Sounds good to me, I will use whichever you prefer.

I could go either way for this game, but for the next game lets for sure decide on a system and swap files.

467 5/17/2019 7:16:00 PM Spring 1943 Allied Message You mentioned you were using Vassal. Do you have a preference? One of the main reasons I like Cyberboard, is that it is very clear exactly what your opponent is doing on the board. Vassal sometimes you are left wondering what is going on, especially with Replacements.
