Need help with a basic Vassal problem on welcome screen Mon, 10 February 2014 07:16
This feels a little embarrassing but I can't get Vassal past the welcome screen. I have a pretty small laptop that I play on and can't get to buttons that I've been told are on the bottom. When I try to grip the Welcome screen on the top I can't get it up high enough to even see "Welcome to Vassal"!

Does anyone know of a command or way in Windows 7 to allow me to grip that welcome screen in the middle and move it up?

I hope this isn't an indication that I'm going to have further problems connecting in to Vassal M'44 play! Shocked

Two things you could try:
- Have you tried altering your screen resolution?
- Enter usually activates the default button. If you're lucky, it might work.

On Vassal, the items around the board are more clumsy than on M44 online. They take more place, and you have to access the draw pile and discard pile yourself. Also, the reason for most people to play on Vassal is Overlord and Breakthrough scenarios, which have bigger boards. I think that playing on Vassal with a small screen will drain the fun out of the play experiences because you will have to scroll all the time and you won't have a good overview of the board.
I have a decent size laptop, and I might use it to go on Vassal to make a small modification to a scenario I'm working on, but I prefer to use my desktop computer with a big screen to actually play or build scenarios.

Quit2,
Thanks for the tips. I tried to hit enter. Nothing. I'm on maximum resolution which makes everything on the screen the smallest possible. Then I found I could left click hold on the top of the window, move it up a little and then continue moving it up with my up arrow key, but there was nothing below "Welcome to Vassal". It's strange. I've also posted this on the Vassal help forum but nothing from there yet.

Plodding on...I would just like to find out if it's even going to be a possibility for me to play on Vassal. Confused

RESOLVED: Need help with a basic Vassal problem on welcome screen Mon, 10 February 2014 14:46
I heard back from Vassal and referred me to a fresh build that resolves my vertical screen resolution issue, and all is well...now to TRY IT OUT! Twisted Evil

Thanks for trying to help, comrades. Perhaps see you in a Vassal game some day soon.
