As a general point, I would really discourage keeping your collection of VASSAL modules anywhere in the C:\Program Files hierarchy. C:\Program Files is a location intended for programs, but not data files associated with those programs. The VASSAL program itself is fine there, but individual modules are data, and should be kept elsewhere. A folder in your home directory (C:\Users\Charles) is ideal.


Point taken. I'll establish an other location going forward.

Email the files to me direct to get around the file size. We'll get this taken care of for you. You've got my email from before


Not sure that attachments of this TRC4 size will pass through my ISP. I believe that the largest that they pass is 5MB, these are currently substantially larger. Will reduce significantly before actually finishing the module. That is in the future.

You can delete a module file as you would any other file.

Here you go. Fixed and added to all your units Russian and German

http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/File:TRC5fixed.vmod

You had done everything right but missed one crucial thing - the last field in the Map dialog - yours was empty and why it wasn't working properly - see attached image so you know where I was talking about

Well, that's great! Now for me to try it.

By the way, just found the TRC6.vmod. It was on my desktop. I guess I had moved it there from Charles and forgot.. I have changed the Board back to TRC4a and will try this thing again.

You guys are great.

I meant from the VASSAL module page where the test files were uploaded. How would I delete a file there or identify to you that the file could be deleted?

Let me know the ones you want deleted and I'll remove them

Okay, I tried the fixed module but it didn't work. The "Return to Start" trait wasn't listed for the former example units.

On editing the module, I saw that the Prototype trait "ReturnToStart" was absent, so I added it to one unit.

Checking the module, the ReturnToStart trait was still missing from the unit in TRC5fixed.vmod.

Still seem to have problem getting that trait applied to units.

Did notice that the module version had been updated automatically from Tim's "TRC5fixed.vmod" 3.2.6 to 3.2.8. Could that be a problem?

I think that I noticed that the CTRL V thing was missing from the Tim's TRC5fixed.vmod but was still listed as a trait when I opened the edited module. Will check edit again.

Whoops, have to do other things for a while. Will go over all this tonight.

Nope updating shouldnt be a problem

The TRC5fixed works perfectly for me. The prototype "ReturnToStart" was added to the "common" prototype, which is already on all the pieces (therefore inheriting "returntostart") so it does not need to be added to the individual pieces. I also removed movement trails from the "common" prototype because you said this was a feature you did not like.

If the CTRL V is gone from my module (which it is) but listed in the edited module then you aren't looking at the same thing or mixing modules up

Just to show you Its working, here is a logfile taken from TRC5fixed module I uploaded. I have not changed the module in anyway since uploading it

Never doubted you. Just can't understand yet why my system does not work as your does.

Taking some time out. Be back in 3 hours.

I want to repeatedly do that to any other piece or all pieces that moved or may move during the turn. The blade of trauma can attack target and make it into a state of intoxication. Dazzling burst attack weeks and make them into a blind for the enemy. Pounce on target and make it into a state of intoxication, and reduce its withdrawal rate. http://www.vipaionkinah.com/

Sorry for the delay. I ran through a full virus scan. Took much longer than I thought. I was concerned that what I seeing was not actually matching what you were achieving. Anyway, the virus scan is finally finished, but I have several maintenance tasks are yet to be done.

I don't know what that preceding message meant, to whom it was directed, or from who it originated. Is it supposed to mean something?

Yes, Tim, the Return to Start fix works fine as the log file shows. Thanks for all the help from all of you. I guess I have used a lot of time the your parts. I am no where near finished with this, but I think I had better do some study on my own with the design manual before asking you to devote any more time to our TRC problems.

All the files that I loaded for this project into VASSAL's system earlier can be deleted:

http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/File:TRC4v2.vmod%20TRC4v2.vmod
http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/File:TRC5.vmod
http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/File:Tmp2979249757449415253.zip
http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/File:Tmp4485721568328777342.zip
http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/File:Tmp8843374889608235583.zip

Please don't delete Tim's files yet as I will probably need to refer to them in order to accomplish things like not printing a Logfile or Movement Trace.

I have a lot of other old files lying around for other modules. I have a number of on going projects, but I will get to them in time and post them for deletion also. Somewhere you are paying for needless extra storage space.

PS: I will make a VASSAL donation <g>.

I suspect it is spam. I wouldn't trust that weblink without further info.

The files have been deleted
