@skibulk I would love to see something like that. I wish I had the skill to implement it. As it is I feel over my head most of the time just working on this project. I'm learning as I go.

@ahkren : Loving your work, a huge thumbs up for this. It's made my proxys significantly nicer.

I've branched a version of this onto BitBucket with a couple of changes specific to what I'm after, but give me a shout if you would like a look. I'm not a php guy either (C# by day) but figured enough to tweak here and there to suit my needs.

I want to ask how you go about populating the cards.csv file. I was going to update it and was wondering if you had a smart tool to pull it from gatherer or if its lifted from something other's db (magic album ?)

Is this something I could even help with ?

I use Gatherer Extractor to for most of my MTG DB needs. There is a parser in the misc/import folder, ge2cards.bat (there are some issues with the parser I haven't quite figured out yet, but it works mostly)

I'd love to see what you have done.

Not a problem. You'll need a BitBucket account - bitbucket(dot)org/account/signup/

Once you've signed up PM me your username and i'll get you in.

The master branch is your 9.1.00, and there's a MarkBetaOne branch with my changes

* A quick build script to robocopy the files from my git folder to my games/magic folder

* I'm only using full card scans so planeswalkers came out weird with their partially transparent lower halves, I've stuck a sold background behind these

* A little commenting on the variables in config.txt

* If art.use.xlhq.full.card = 1 then it assumed the filename would be <something>."art.xlhq.extension"."art.extension" E.G. "Doom Blade.xhlq.jpg". My art.xlhq.extension was blank but with xlhq.full.card on it ended up looking for "Doom Blade..jpg" (note the two dots). It now doesn't assume that dot is there so if you do have one - make sure you include it in art.xlhq.extension

* The renderers would ignore art.use.xlhq.full.card = 1 if it didn't have "xlhq" somewhere in the filename - removed that requirement

I'm only using modern edition card frames (except for planeswalkers), love how black lotus looks (sorry !) - so this certainly isn't for everyone.
