module start via command line

Postby hpb » January 18th, 2008, 2:05 pm

as the title says: is there a possibility to start a module via command line?
like: "(...) \javaws\http\Dwww.vassalengine.org\P80\DMws\AMvassal.jnlp -mod WH40k mod vrs 34" or the like?

You can start a module from the command line by including the module name as the last argument.

Only when using the manual installation, not with Web Start.

Sorry, I didn't realize that you were using Web Start.

If you want to pass arguments to VASSAL, as of 3.0.17, you have to run it
with one of the included shell scripts, or run it directly by invoking
java yourself.

If you get the manual installation (not the manual installer!---yes,
I know, this is confusing) here

http://www.vassalengine.org/install/VASSAL-3.0.zip

you'll see the scripts I mean.
