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

"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,"Wren's Run Packmaster",C14

If the config folder you'll find the 2 FAQ file... could help you.
thank you!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I am certain the typeface Wizards uses for the collector’s number, set and rarity in the bottom left corner is Gotham. Giveaways include:

  • the high middle point of the capital M (flat on the top, pointed at the bottom)
  • the very short tail on the 1
  • the stemless capital U
  • the wider numerals, like 6 and 9
  • the capital C with its sloped or angled terminals
  • the straight bar on the R
  • and the 3 with its sharp angle on the first story
It also makes sense on a cultural level. Gotham is the new hotness. From CNN to Twitter, MPAA movie trailer previews, even political campaigns, it’s a well-designed typeface that is more popular than ever.

First, thx for your work.

But I have an issue I just can't figure out.

Cards won't translate for the following sets :

For KTK, it's obvious since there is no translation file. But I have the other files :
- cards-french-JOU
- cards-french-JOU-flavor
- cards-french-THS
- cards-french-THS-flavor

I checked the files and couldn't find any errors.

I just dont know why the cards wont translate ? O.o

You need to edit the config file for exemple:
output.language = french-Jou;

Great work on the new templates, I was able to edit it back to English and tried with a few older sets, they worked fine.

I have then tried Rise of the Eldrazi and Planar Chaos, which both need new frames for Timeshifted, Leveler and Eldrazi cards. I will see if I find the time, but unfortunately the new templates are a different size then the old, so I was unsuccesful in "modding" the existing templates so far. As I was planning to updated my Proxys with new design, I will try to make it work still, but if anyone more talented could give me a hand, I would highly appreciate it.

Thanks again.

Thank you for your work.
Please find a better upload site, that one is horrendous, filled with aggressive, invasive, malicious adware. It is, in a word, evil.

Awesome work on this, thanks. I've been working on a hybrid of your M15 and the old version. I'm eager to share it once it is closer to being finished.
