@Guillaume: Thanks for you answer. Unfortunately, this confirms my assumption.

@everyone facing the same issue as me: I found a workaround to run TS on a Macbook Pro with Retina Display by installing Vassal 3.1.20 on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS 64 Bit virtualized with VirtualBox 4.2.10. The following points are important to avoid a bad performance:
1. Use Ubuntu 12.04 NOT 12.10.
2. Install the Virtualbox Guest Additions
3. Change the following Virtualbox Settings for Virtualmachine:
3.1 Activate IO-APIC (if 64 Bit Version has been used)
3.2 set CPUs to 2
3.3 set Videomemory to 128 MB

Note: I am not a Virtualbox or Ubuntu expert. So don't ask me any questions, if it does not work for you. I googled, read and tried several things on this topic until it finally worked for me.

Sorry, if this was slightly of topic, but I assume it will help everyone who has the same issue and comes across this thread.

Hi everybody,

The bug (missing card and piece text) is still around in 3.2.3 :(

Best,

Yes, this is because it's not our bug. It's a bug in Java. If we can
do anything at all, it will only be a workaround.
