Team Windows - possible?

Postby Kevan » January 18th, 2008, 7:13 am

Is it possible to have players split into two teams, with each team having access to a "team window" for hidden dice rolls and discussion?

If I remember correctly, I asked about this a year ago, and Vassal did not support it at the time. However, I'm wondering if the current version has a means of doing so.

Team Windows - possible?

There are no hidden discussions, except for private chats in the live server. You can define a Private Map Window that is visible to more than one side, and use that for your teams. For hidden dice rolls, you can suppress the report in the chat window and display the result on GamePieces in the Private Map using the global properties set by the dice.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give that a shot. Does anyone know of any modules that currently use this, so that I can take a look at it in action?
