Make it the 1st advances.

I will forget the log files. They do not seem to work like action files in Cyberboard. We can sort any minor problem out.

Not sure how things are over there but we are not told to stay indoors and only essential workers to go to work. Having said that there are pictures of the tube in London being crowded.

14 3/23/2020 8:07:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message BB,
No problem on the dropbox. We can email files.

The destroyed markers are no longer the little small ones, but rather just like the markers in the game - up in the marker window, next to besieged marker.

I agree the map takes a bit to get use to, but I have found that I prefer it since it is marked correctly for the historical game (no overlays on old VP cities and the new ones marked).

I will be playing every day or so depending on work. Evey thing in my routine has changed as of late, as I am sure it has for you as well.

13 3/23/2020 6:47:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message I did get one map with the countries very nicely delineated but it looked horrible. btw where does one find the fort destroyed markers. I cannot see them on this version. Sorry about all the delay.
12 3/23/2020 6:43:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Having got the new version I find myself not able to get the WBC set up. I end up with a T1 in Brussels and no trenches in Italy. Help.

Sorry about the drop box. I am happy to send an action file (assuming Vassal allows) or just follow the narrative. With my current Vassal opponent we both rely on the narrative and then there is the occasional hiccup.

1 3/22/2020 8:57:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I added the expansion cards. I am not familiar with Cyberboard, so if you are ok with it would rather use VASSAL. 3.1.17 is the most current VASSAL and 9.4 is the current module. I will send you a link to DropBox (a cloud service I use). Instead of sending the file via email, you can find the logfile in the DropBox folder.

I agree with OOS for movement, and I have set up per 5.7 Historical Scenario (in the latest version of the living rules). I think that covers it. I will roll for sides.
