1985: Deadly Northern Lights VASSAL

The VASSAL Module for 1985: Deadly Northern Lights is finally here!

Being a monster game, we have a monster module. Due to size and security measures, we had to create zip files containing zip files. Follow these steps to create the module and start your Scandinavian campaigns:

1. Download the two parts of the module (if you have problems downloading, try right-click and “open link in a new tab”):

2. Unzip the two files in the same directory. This will create two files named 1985 DNL.zip and 1985 DNL.z01

3. Unzip the 1985 DNL.zip file. This will create the final 1985 DNL.vmod module by combining the zip and z01 files.

A big thanks to our Combat Engineer John Rainey, to our lead playtester Dominik Häufler and to the others who made this possible!

EDIT 20201113 ZT: Module has been updated to version 1.01, adding a die roll button and squashing a couple of minor bugs. You will need the latest version of VASSAL to use it.
