I have a folder of card scans called "Rivals Quick Start", but the cards have a 1996 copyright with 5th Edition templating. Magic Librarities confirms that the Rivals Quick Start Set should have a 1995 copyright. So what is this set of scans I have? Any clue? This Feedback for example doesn't match any other set, so it wasn't constructed from other set scans.

Edit: It appears to be the Introductory 2 Player Set instead...

Yeah, 4th Edition has a 1995 copyright with the artist line snug to the top of the bar, RQS has a 1995 copyright with the artist line further down, and ITP has a 1996 copyright line.

Thanks for those! I had a look and compared them with the scans of the ITP scans that I downloaded a long time ago: Island3 and Phantom Monster appear to be missing from the Mega repository. The MTG Wiki mentions Phantom Monster as being exclusive to the ITP, but the number of Islands seem unchanged when comparing deck lists. Is there really no Island3 in the RQS?

I also tried looking at Scryfall, but the ITP looks incomplete there: The site only lists a single version of each basic land.

Yeah, according to Magic Librarities those two are only in the Introductory Two-Player Set. https://www.magiclibrarities.net/478-ra ... index.html. Also check if you have ITP labelled as RQS like I did. You may want to keep ITP.

As a side note, it looks like the processing person forgot to white out the edges.

Thanks. I should have checked the librarities site. I almost did, but then I changed my mind. I opted for the Wiki instead, and I did not look any further :(. The fact that the basic lands are not ordered in the same way in the two sets made it look like the last Island was missing.

The missing ITP lands should be fixed in Scryfall now.

As a friendly criticism of the picture process for UMA, the card scan centering/consistency should be improved in the future.

I'd like to say that I'm a huge fan of these HQ images, and I use them in a database that I've designed for my own collecting and tracking purposes. They're truly amazing.

I'm noticing (not criticizing) that the images are taking a while for Ravnica Allegiance. Are you looking for people to help? I have a license for Photoshop, though I'm a novice user at best. If processing cards is something that can be taught, I can volunteer to help. I recall seeing more posts to this effect earlier in this 65 page thread, which I only skimmed, but I'm happy to should it be helpful.

We had a recent changeover in both who provides scans and who does most of the photoshop work for these images and we ran into a couple issues with this batch that took some extra time to resolve. GK2 and beyond should move faster.

I normally prefer to only do a full release with all extras but in this case the RNA cards are done, while the tokens and ads aren't. I'll try to pull together a card-only release of RNA later today and then release the extras this weekend.

First, thx for (all) the updates. But there's a problem with Ravnica Allegiance Guild Kits. The two folders on MEGA are empty, so there's nothing to download.

Should be fixed momentarily.
