Yeah, I agree!
And btw, the problem is back again, it's once again not working for me. So, I guess the question still stands: am I the only one consistently experiencing this? :/

EDIT: Heh, and now it's working again. Weird.

The borders on AER look properly black. Would it be possible to go "fix" KLD in the same manner?

How are they different? Pretty sure I used the exact same process for both sets, which involved compositing them on the same standard border image we use for everything.

I apologize in advance if I was mistaken. I will check the borders color to make sure that it wasn't a false impression.

(AER is "Aether Revolt")

Edit: I was wrong. The borders are the same color.
Also, Scrapper Champion and Heroic Intervention spelling.

Edit 2: Tezzeret the Schemer has some shadows on the edges of the art.

The anti-fake label on Spire of Industry is different than other labels on rare and mythic cards.Thanks a lot.

Both fixed.

Ooooh, good catch! My batch processing was failing on the PWs. Replaced both this and Ajani.

EDIT: Also went back and performed the same fix on the four KLD planeswalkers, which had much less noticeable effects but should still be a bit more accurate in this new incarnation.

Guess I missed this one. Fixed.

Thank you, as always, my friends.

Always appreciated and it's great to have them in time for Pro Tour Aether Revolt being held in Ireland starting on Friday! 8)

Minor issue: The pAER folder is called "pAER - Aether Reborn Prromos", should be "pAER - Aether Revolt Promos"

Cool, I'll go fix that up now.

Are y'all ever refreshing your images btw? I noticed that something (Chrome Mox, I think) was an older version of our release. I don't think it's a big difference there, but I'm wondering if it'd be good to have some clearer way to announce if files get changed.

2 Masterpieces have been updated since the original release: Hangarback Walker and Chrome Mox. The new Hangarback Walker picture is really different, whereas the Chrome Mox one is nearly identical: The only noticeable difference is what seems to be a white spec of dust (?) on the black jewel that was not on the original version.

As for refreshing pictures, I scan through the folders regularly to download the newly uploaded files. I also count the scans I have on my machine to figure out if I am missing anything. I found out today I had missed a bunch of EMN promos that had been released in October. While doing that I also found out that a few Game Day promos listed by magiclibrarities are missing from both the torrent and the MEGA folder: The 2 Pierce Strider cards from 2010 and Suture Priest from 2011. Not sure whether that is something you want to fix. I have not checked if they are located in a different folder.

Because manual checks are such a pain, I am thinking of writing a small utility to check for updates: You would specify a date, and the utility would list all the files updated since that date. I had a quick look at the MEGA API and that seems fairly easy to do.

Yeah, that spot was missing as I originally assumed it was dust as well and cleaned it off, but when I referenced the original art I saw it was an intentional inclusion: http://www.artofmtg.com/wp-content/uplo ... tG-Art.jpg

I looked into this when I originally put together the torrent, and my determination after a little research was that these three cards are actually identical to the released versions of the Mirrodin Besieged and New Phyrexia cards, so it neither made sense to include separate images nor would it necessarily be possible to even verify whether a copy of either card was from the promo supply. (The Pristine Talisman, conversely, is included because it features an alternate "Mirrodin Pure" expansion logo that's different from the expansion card.)

Just let me know what'll make it easy.

Oh wow, that's... interesting. I did not notice the two spots when I looked up the card on Gatherer back in September.

I had noticed that those cards did not look like most of the other Game Day cards, but I had not realized they were identical to the standard versions. That makes perfect sense. Thanks for the explanation.

Just let me know what'll make it easy.
So far I have only had a cursory look at one example. It may not even be necessary to code a C++ application as the DSK comes with a CLI. Depending on the functionalities it provides, that may be enough. I will take a closer look this week and let you know. Right now I am still catching up with the (many) releases from the past 2 months.

I found the exact same problem in the Kaladesh release, 300dpi, but this time the problem appears only for the Mountain, the other lands are numbered according to the serial. If you can rename also those files (swap 1 with 3) it would be great!
Basic lands are still out of order in Kaladesh and Commander 2016. Obviously not a big issue, but I am seconding this request in case this is something that was meant to be fixed but eventually forgotten.
