HQCG mtgimage mod

Postby keatonic » 19 Jun 2014, 18:23

I have modified HQCG to pull the images from mtgimage com instead of a local crops folder. This is more convenient, but also slows down generation of the images a bit.

I forked Gilfar's cardgen on Github and modified it at github com/KeatonDM/cardgen

Known issues:
Cards with multiple art, i.e. Strip Mine from ATQ, do not work.

Incoming Features:
Use mtgjson com instead of CSV masterbase.

Feel free to open any issues or pull requests on GitHub.

Couldn't open an issue on GitHub.

Sorry for the weird post here....

New to GitHub. I just set up everything tonight. Forgive my newbieness.

Won't find basic land, generates blanks, no real issue, but weird.

Won't find Wear/Tear, Chandra, Pyromaster, Ajani Mentor of Heroes

Errors out, no output.

The issue with basics will be the same as the commons with multiple images from Homelands/Alliances. The program will look for a name like Forest1.jpg and the image will be named Forest 1.jpg or Forest(1).jpg. Just verify the names.

The fused cards dont have a frame so they wont work. Like ever :( Unless we find a frame for them.

And we'll always have problems with the planewalkers since their images go over the frame on one side and under on the other.

I made all the images work with mtgimage IF you don't have the image in your crop folder.

Hi everybody,

thanks a lot for all your good work!!! really appreciate!

I feel a little dumb because I downloaded from /KeatonDM/cardgen" all the files.....but when I put a mws deck on the bat....nothing happen! I dont understand what I'm doing wrong.....

It's a bit weird because in the baconcatbugs files there are more files: php, output,etc.....

So what can i do to make this goodie works???
