CSV Import Issues

Postby sitterhonk » 12 Nov 2019, 23:31

hey developers of Magic Album,

I'm working on a csv-parser from my collection of the app 'MTG Manager' to the importable csv-format of 'Magic Album'
after solving several tiny encoding problems I achieved to get almost all of the cards recognized by your program. But there are still some orphans, where MA says "These records are not imported and should be added manually"
I can't figure out, how to convert them.

1. double sided cards
For example I got this entry in my CSV:

Code: Select all
"ENG   DDJ   Life | Death      1   0   "
and MA lists that as not imported. Though it's the same name (and encoding) and set-code when I search the database for that card.

2. Most of my lands
For example I got this entry in my CSV:

Code: Select all
"ENG   DDH   Mountain      3   0   "
Is there something i'm missing?

3. Card with versions
Unfortunately I can't get a version number of a card from the MTG Manager-export. But it seems, that MA requires to get the version if more than 1 exists?
Like this record:
Code: Select all
"ENG   GRN   Selesnya Guildgate      1   0   "
Thanks for your help!
If everything works and I can transfer my fast scanned cards from MTG Manager, I'm happy to share the (python) parser.

Greetings,
Fabian

Name must be "Life|Death" without spaces.

Yes, MA requires version if more than one card exists. Almost all lands have versions so this is the same problem. You can set version to "1" for all these cards. Not a good solution, but at least it will allow importing to MA.
