VASL 6.x Extensions

These are built to work especially with 6.0 or later.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: In June 2023, VASL will take initial steps to include Game Converter functionality that will update Games from previous versions to the latest VASL version. Rollout out of this functionality will begin in version 6.6.7.

As a result of this, minor changes need to be made to the modern extensions (those with a .vmdx file extension). This primarily effects the naming and versionning of the extensions and NOT their functionality.

The list of extensions below has been updated to include the new versions. It is recommended that users replace previous versions (note that in most cases minor name changes have occured so old versions must be deleted manually).

Once these new versions, dated June 2023, have been downloaded from, VASL6.6.7 will enable subsequent versions to be downloaded from within VASL.
