HQ Card Generator M15

Postby satsuki » 27 Sep 2014, 19:39

Hello.
Some time ago i wanted to use HQCG to make HQ M15 french proxys but the software needed to be modified to do that.
I started to mod it but at an early stage, i was contacted by a french magic player who did most of the works, thanks to him Archangel_54.
He also corrected the aspect ratio to be 1:1 with real M15 cards

Now HQCG M15 version is ready and up to date up to KTK.

Some samples:

Heres the download links:
HQCG M15 version : http://www.multiup.org/download/2270135f5ad17091406203428f2b4855/HQCG_M15.7z
Planeswalkers with overlay for M15 and KTK : HQCG M15 version : http://www.multiup.org/download/0a575316d2b6ff7eafb8eaedcbf5ceb3/Crops.Planeswalkers.PostM15.7z

As i use it in french only the cards.csv (original and in english) may have some bugs as i haven't generated english cards at all, if you found bugs, please let me knows and i'll try to correct them ^^

Hello! I'm having a bit of trouble trying to do a few things whilst making, "custom" cards... When The card is generated, the artist paint brush is a lot higher than the artist name... Also, there is no place for me to write a 101/173 set number thing. Also, how can I export the card image as a .tif file? Thank you :)

For clarity, the SET NAME/artist info shows like this;

RTR * EN R (paint brush)
empty space empty space (Artist name)
_______________________________________
So the paint brush overlaps the

It manages the margin incorrectly with the new charm templating (choose x, and bulleted options).

The bottom side has some issues, and the margin management is a bit off, but it's close.

I also had to change the titleToGuilds.csv

Could you try to generate a M15 version of this card and tell me if it does the same bug ?
The pictures i've posted in the first post have been done without modification of the software at all and haven't this bug.

[Edit]I've just generated the same card as you dans here's the result:

Ok, so it works for M15, but not for any other set?

Hello,
I've just generate this card without any problems.

I think your bugs are on the database (cards.csv)

Sure, here is a sample image of the artist. I wrote the name as Gregstaples. The set name was "X" because I left it blank... This is using the .bat file found in MISC>Createcard.bat
I also have another question, how can I automatically set the output to a .tif file @ 300dpi? Because when I tried editing the "config.txt" file, and

I change THIS,
______________________________
"[output - general]
output.directory = output\
output.suffix =
output.extension = png"
______________________________

into THIS
______________________________

"[output - general]
output.directory = output\
output.suffix =
output.extension = tif"
______________________________

However, when I open the createCard.bat I am prompted with

______________________________
".tif not valid format"

______________________________
... Thank you for everything guys! :)
ALSO ALSO, how can I get the card to say EN instead of FR?

So I THINK I've understood one of the problems.... The 101/200 set NUMBER isn't even a question when filling out the CustomCard.bat....

Hello.
You can't set a specific dpi as output nor as tiff.
If you want loseless image fomat use png.

This M15 card generator as been made from sacko's 0.9 version but only for cards generation from csv, the Createcard.bat haven't been upadated so if you want to make a custom card, just use a custom cards.csv ^^

1- That stinks I can't use tiff format :/
2- Thanks, I will use .png (I actually already was, but just read .tif was better idk)
3- I looked in every folder twice, and couldn't find a file named "custom cards.csv" So, I'm assuming you mean to create a .csv file... Could you please help me though? I'm not quite following the faq readme.txt

BASICALLY, let's say I make a .csv What should each column be?

4- I read there needs to be a .mwDeck file? What the HECK is that type of file/how do I open/edit/make one?

5- Once the .csv file is made, what program executes them/makes the cards?

Thank you!
____

Sorry if any of these questions were asked or seem obvious :/ I'm new to this program, and trying to learn. Thanks for everything so far :)

1-2)tiff file is only better than png if you do a 16bit edition, the HQCG is 8 bits, the crops are 8 bits so tiff is useless.

3)Of course you'll need to do your own cards.csv file

4)No need for a mwdeck file

5)Here's a how to:

-Create a new text file named cards.csv to replace the provided "\HD cards generator M15\data\cards.csv"
-Add cards into it.
-Create a new text file to generate your cards, for exemple "mycards.txt"
-Launch "\HD cards generator M15\generateCards.bat" and darg and drop mycards.txt into the dos windows and press enter.

File structures:
=================================================================
One card in "cards.csv" as to be structured in a particular way:
(italic text is beteween #)

"Name","Edition","Color","Type",P/T,"Flavor text",Rarity,Casting cost,"Capabox",,"Artist",Number/Total

Exemple:
"Wren's Run Packmaster",C14,G,"Creature — Elf Warrior",5\5,"Some flavo said....",R,{3}{G},"Champion an Elf #(When this creature enters the battlefield, sacrifice it unless you exile another Elf you control. When this creature leaves the battlefield, that card returns to the battlefield.)#
{2}{G}: Put a 2/2 green Wolf creature token onto the battlefield.
Wolves you control have deathtouch.",,"Mark Zug",227\337
=================================================================

=================================================================
To generate one card in mycards.txt here's the file structure:
1,"Name",Edition"

Exemple:
1,"Wren's Run Packmaster",C14
=================================================================

If the config folder you'll find the 2 FAQ file... could help you.
