I was wondering if that would happen. Apparently this fix should be
applied to Windows only. Thanks for testing.

Is this something you can reproduce reliably? What are the exact steps
you took?

I can't seem to reproduce it at all with 3.4.6. I suspect I simply forgot I needed to completely close out of the module and reload it to get the new images to appear last time.

(Apologies to Mark for hijacking his thread!)

when dragging pieces was half-size, and in this build that should be back to normal. Is it?

Yes I have a retina display. I hadn't noticed a problem before and now I look at it, the dragged images are 1:1 in v3.4.6 (compared to the pieces on the board). In the snapshot, they look like 2x size.

I will test the zip issue in the morning.

Try VASSAL-3.4.7-SNAPSHOT-6733719d0. That should put the drag image back to normal for you on a Mac. (The fix needed to be applied to Windows only, apparently.)
