Deck Builder and Rules Viewer

Postby Snacko » 28 May 2008, 22:38

NaTeDoGG:
I messed around and created a very simple MTG deck editor. My goal for this little project was to come up with a powerful, easy way to search cards. It is difficult to build decks when you have 8300+ cards to choose from! Here is my first crack at it. It is still a little rough, but is fully functional (except for displaying card images, and you can't restrict by set). I'd be interested in ideas on how to improve the searching.
I'm not developing this application, however expect database updates, fixes for new symbols(like new hybrid mana), or inclusion of patches.
Changelog
2.9.6a
  • updated MTGO Vanguard cards
2.9.6
  • updated cards up to Eventide
  • updated legality
  • updated mana produced
  • fixed saving files with dot(.) not having the proper extension leading to errors on the next program start up
  • fixed searching for mana produced m=, mana=, manaproduced=
  • fixed image panel being visible when starting the software with Card images display set to None

Latest development version(old plugins no longer compatible, all NaTeDoGG's plugins included)

I understand that this program is no longer actively developed and is basically maintained by the charity of the great people here.

When are updates typically made to incorporate a new set? I only ask because I have several deck ideas and I'd like to get some of them down on paper. I also haven't been around here long, so maybe that's a dumb question. I am perfectly okay with waiting.

As a side effect of me making various languages available for the card generator, there will be some limited support for those here too.

Thanks for taking care of the project so it doesn't die Snacko! After deciding to stop work on Arcane, I needed to stop.

It has been a while, but I believe the DeckBuilder and RulesViewer that existed in the Arcane codebase was more up to date that the pre-Arcane codebase. I can't remember how many functional improvements there were, but the code is much, much cleaner. It would be awesome to merge your fixes with the Arcane codebase.

The "arcane" project is a framework that handles all the card loading and database stuff, with helpers for building Magic related Swing apps. So arcane+deckbuilder+rulesviewer is equivalent to the DeckBuilder you have been maintaining. The server, client, and network projects were the MTG game playing projects that I've abandoned, but these are completely separate from the other projects.

It would be great if you could repost the Arcane codebase, because I don't have it and last time I tried to find it mediafire lost the file.
That's why I've been building on top of your last work in progress builds.
It shouldn't be a problem to port the changes back when I get the code.

Some testing version of decbuilder-arcane
http://www.mediafire.com/?tjcgbq0iaat
It shouldn't zap your decks like 0.16 and has all(or most of) the bugfixes backported, but use with caution as I haven't tested every single case of usage.
The supplied plugins might not work at all or have crippled functionality.
Please leave some feedback if something doesn't work as it's still work in progress. Hopefully I will iron out most of the bugs and release the fixed source.
