I hope you are enjoying the Collector's edition of World in Flames. To ring in the (hopefully far better) new year and so you can play this international award winning, Guinness world record holding game with anyone around the world, Australian Design Group is pleased to announce the worldwide release of the latest version (v1.05) of the World in Flames: Collector's Edition Deluxe Vassal module.
WiFCE Deluxe Vassal Module v1.05 - 2 Jan 2021
Your password to access the dropbox folder is the same as the previous password you received when you purchased World in Flames or the WiFCE Deluxe Vassal module. Keep this password secret and secure as it will be the same password to download future releases of the Vassal module as well.
To download the module, first click on the link, then select the Direct Download option from the download button at the top right of the dropbox page. If you have a dropbox account you must be logged into dropbox to download the module.
After you have downloaded the WIFCE Deluxe official Vassal v1.05p Game Pack folder, unzip it (there is no password required for this). The password to unzip the WiFCE Vassal module zipped file itself (WiFCE Vassal module and players guide 1.05P.zip), is stated in the licencing agreement included in the Vassal folder.
If you have any queries about installation or operation of the files please contact the Vassal designer, Craig firstname.lastname@example.org with the Header WiFCE Vassal installation/operation (as applicable). Be warned that it is a huge module and takes a couple of minutes to load (play is fast once loaded). If you find any issues pls forward them direct to Craig with the Header WiFCE Vassal comments.
If you are looking for Vassal opponents, you can send a post to our WiF opponents wanted blog with details where people can contact you.
To ease set-up, there is included two scenarios (09 for Classic and 10 for Deluxe) that already have picked the mandatory units (ships and HQs) for the 24.4.7 Global war campaign (use Classic if you only want a pinch of Deluxe, as it has all the options still available).
I have also created my favourite setup (revised, throw away that last nonsense you downloaded, it was just awful! and the one before that! that was horrible too) for the 1939 Global War campaign. You can download it here (no password required).
My set up is designed for the Deluxe game play and includes all units at set up (feel free to redraw my random draws if you like). However it has been reverse engineered such that if you remove any particular optional unit type the basic ones are themselves still in the optimal position (I know I know they can't both be optimal, you've banged me to rights, they have been optimised for Classic but still almost perfectly optimised for Deluxe on the presumption that any added units should not take your eye off the main game).
If you have a better complete setup in vers 1.05 pls contact me using the contact page on our site. If we get 4 or more submissions we will hold a competition and the setup voted best by the wiffers wins a free WiFCE Collector's edition Deluxe game.
You can also download previous versions of the Vassal module using the password provided in your download info email.

Thank you very much for your support for our games and I hope you enjoy the latest version of the amazing World in Flames collector's edition Deluxe Vassal module.regards
PS When loading the full Deluxe Global war campaign module (and potentially others) if you run into an "out of memory error" or "heap too big" or some such (as I did), try loading the module with minimum/maximum heap settings (see module loading instructions) of 768/1536. The load will be slower but the game play is still quick.
