(remove line feeds, and paste this link into your browser's address bar)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOW TO DOWNLOAD:
1. SIGN UP at mega.nz
2. Download sets' zips - ONE-BY-ONE
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Features:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All the XMage game images:
- Deck cards images
- Flip forms and meld forms
- Tokens (plus emblems and avatars) images
- Variative tokens images
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(included here, of course, the complete of MM3 set - Modern Masters 2017)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The majority of images (about 98% of this) - are in HQ resolution
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No excess deck cards' images in DB (stripped to only those that are present in XMage game)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Replaced "dark-sketch" Media Inserts walkers' cards' images by good images (from other sets)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Basic lands policy:
Forest
Island
Mountain
Plains
Swamp
Wastes
Due to the:
- Multiple discrepancies between XMage game's sets' basic lands cardpool slots enlisted in game, and lists of basic lands in these sets in the RL MTG
- Huge amounts of basic lands, and discrepancies inside of many RL MTG sets of "which exact image does this basic land (card #) of this set have?"
- Mid-low (sad to say) level of artistic skill of many of artists who made basic lands artwork for MTG
due to all that, ALL basic lands in this DB - are replaced by "the same" (in each set) basic lands - for convenience during deckbuilding, and etc.
If you dislike these land images, and/or want to use other basic lands images - you always can just download the images you like, and paste into your XMage game images DB ("images" folder of game)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dual fetches in EXP ("Zendikar Expeditions") set:
Arid Mesa
Bloodstained Mire
Flooded Strand
Marsh Flats
Misty Rainforest
Polluted Delta
Scalding Tarn
Verdant Catacombs
Windswept Heath
Wooded Foothills
- are replaced by "guild" images from Strata Strike studio
(if you want the original EXP dual-fetches images - you always can just download its images you like, and paste into your XMage game "images" folder)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Snow-covered" lands, and so on other lands - are left "original", without changes)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bonus - "mage-hat" icon in "icons" subfolder
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Despite all this great work, there's possible that images of some tokens spawned from some rare spells from some rare sets, MAY not be shown yet.
If you see such a tokens - please write the issue on it here - specifying in it, set code of that spell (and, possibly, that spell's card number in this set) - all that info, can be seen in XMage Deck Editor cardpool list.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Make in XMage "Preferences" the large size of card's preview (that is on mid-mouse wheel scroll) for viewing of nice large cards' images previews
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Great thanks again to all the people who gave their wise advices, clues, useful links, etc. so needed aid during making of this project
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Next planned update of this database: after “Duel Decks: Mind vs. Might” release (known date: 31 march 2017)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Further plans:
- Subsequent project - called "Let's Get Rid Of That Stupid White Corners Of Round-Cornered Cards"
- Subsequent project - on card images that, by now, have solid WHITE borders (making that borders solid BLACK)
All these, will be made with the use of png masks

===================================================================================================================

AND - IT IS ALL DONE NOW!
ALL THE XMAGE CARDS' IMAGES - WITH BLACK BORDERS AND TRANSPARENT CORNERS - ARE READY!
Now uploading the final DB - its size is about 45 GBs ))
Upload will be proceeding for several days long - after that, I'll delete the previous version of DB (with corners pips) and replace it by the new
Also, it is needed to be thought of, where to host this DB
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Further plans: regular update of this DB, when new MTG sets come out, and when slightlymagic source DB of HQ images is updated to new sets
- To replace the current low-res "Modern Masters 2017" (MM3) set images in DB by the content from slightlymagic (when it will appear)
- To make "raw" (low-res) images for the new set "Duel Decks: Mind vs. Might" - when it will be in XMage game (in its cardpool list)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And right now, I just go playing XMage, with all-the-cool cards 8)
