server game setup (novice questions)

Postby zco2007 » June 18th, 2015, 11:11 am

Hello,
I'm trying to setup a new game of Warbirds: Canvas Falcons to test it and found some issues (novice stuff probably):
1- I set up OK the Room . If I start the game and connect, I guess that I already "joined" the room as I don't have the option to join the room from the server controls as noted at the help file. But I can't see the map I set up (a very basic map with 2 planes), I though the game (with maps/pieces) kept stored in the server. What I'm doing wrong?

2- Tried to remove this room form the server to start again ( just in case I did something wrong with the map setup), but can't see how. How to remove a room from Vassal Server?

Thanks

Pablo

No game resources are stored in the game server. The game server is
just a relay.

My guess is that you have the divider between the chat pane and the
map dragged all the way to the bottom of the window.

Empty rooms will eventually be removed by the server. You don't need to
do anything.
