Can you switch between email & realtime?

Postby MarkJohnson » March 29th, 2008, 5:22 am

I'm about to try my first Vassal game, and something I didn't comprehend is whether I can switch between email & realtime modes for this program in the middle of a game. If so, how do I do that?

Yes, this is easy. At the end of your on-line session, one of you saves the game. You can then open the saved game offline, start a log file and do a pbem turn. Play pbem as normal. When you are ready to play online again, one of you opens the last log file and you use that to start the online session.

Brent.
