Play through log file - centre on moving unit

Postby jockulus » March 5th, 2016, 4:54 am

When playing a log file sent to you by an opponent......Is there a way to get Vassal to scroll the map to the the active unit that is moving? From memory, this happens automatically in one or two modules, but normally it does not. So if I am replaying a logfile with a large map, it's very hard to follow unit movement

Open the module and then go to File/Preferences. There's a check box there for that.

Actually, there are 3 settings for this behavior that can be designed into a module--making the player's screen follow movement can be set to Always, Never, or Use player preference. Only in the last case would you be able to do what jimpyle suggested.
