Forge mobile pictures

Postby ancientmagicwizard » 25 Nov 2020, 01:01

Hi

I'm trying to copy card pictures downloaded using gatherer extractor to my SD card.

I use the same subfolder names as Forge for desktop and also the file names of the pictures are in the format of Forge: name.full.jpg

When I choose the card folder in Forge mobile and restart, the images are not used in the deck'builder.

Is this a bug or what am I doing wrong?

The same pictures work perfectly in Forge desktop.

thx

I found the problem.
Some sets are not stored in the subfolder with same name as the set for example LEA is stored in A folder.

Does anybody know why this choice was made for some sets not to use the set code as the folder name?

Hey :)

Guess you didn't check the link in the thread I hinted at recently?

Here: https://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=30100&p=246114#p246126

My first response there contained advice to check this out first, if you go manual:
https://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=29919#p244726

I'll quote myself then:

CptKird wrote:Each set is defined by its edition txt-file in Forge/res/editions. Open up "Limited Edition Beta.txt" for example and look at the top of its contents:

[metadata]
Code=LEB
Date=1993-10-01
Name=Limited Edition Beta
Code2=B
...
etc

Creating subfolders inside your cardPicsDir need to be named according to either Code or Code2, in this case, the subfolder needs to be named "B" because:

If both set codes differ, use Code2 (mostly for older/very old sets).
Have fun (and patience) collecting :)
