Issues with the Vassal engine.

Is there a list of command line switches/arguments available - I've searched the forums to no avail.

I've been using Launchbox to run Vassal board games - it works with no problem using the name of the board game as a command line parameter but I wondered if it was possible to prevent the Module Manager launching as I don't need to use it when playing individual games, e.g. Friday (See image).

Instead of running vassal.exe, launch the Player class with java.exe directly. Something like:

java -cp c:\path\to\vengine.jar VASSAL.launch.Player --standalone c:\path\to\module.vmod

Also add other java arguments you might need, some modules like bigger values for the heap sizes.
