5/8" multi-purpose point counter

Post by Viking_CTO »


I've seen Neal using a 5/8" German counter that shows a number with a plus and a minus. I believe once it was labeled "VP" and another time "MP".

If this is already in Vassal somewhere, I can't find it. Does anyone know of an extension that provides this, or is this something Neal created his own extension for?

Thank you,
Todd

No extension needed, they're under each nationality section in VASL. You can use them to track anything, we mostly use them for tracking VP and vehicle MP. You can right click and change the name for what you want to track.

I don't see that counter in my VASL 6.6.6 with no extensions, and it's not there when I use my common extensions either.

Interesting; it's also not present in my VASL 6.6.6 (or 6.6.4). Vehicle MP and German Pf usage is what I'm hoping to track too.

I just checked and that counter is not available in my installation of VASL 6.6.6.1 either.

Oops, my mistake, it is an extension. I don't remember where I got it, as I don't see it on the vasl.info download section. So I uploaded it here:
