Magic Set Editor

Postby Pringlesman » 17 Jun 2016, 20:40

At my Local Gaming Shop we were talking about doing a Beta sealed deck league. I figured the easiest way to do so would be to recreate all the cards in Magic Set Editor. I ended up making Beta/Arabian/Antiquies and was half way through legends before I had computer problems and lost all of the files. Though somehow I still have a pdf of ABU. In the past this is how I've made proxies for my cube. I liked doing this project so I'm starting over now.

MSE has some advantages (and disadvantages) over some other methods.

*It is easy to print new packs
*When making the sets it's easy to have the current oracle wording on the cards.
*Consistant borders between sets.

*You have to indivdually add the cards, making the entire process time intensive.

Does anyone want this? Would this be kosher to post on this site? If I were to remake the earlier sets on here would other people want them? Would anybody be willing to recreate a set. Be it anything from Arabian Nights to Eternal Masters. It's pretty easy and I could recreate the set symbols easy enough for people who don't feel comfortable with the vector part of the project.

Edit* Looking around I found out how MSE stores its set information. It's pretty much just a notepad file inside a zip file. If I could make a program that would take a set spoiler and changed the format to match MSE format all I would have to do is manually imput the picture files and check everything for correct formating. I just have no idea how to do that.

Surely you would be better off using one of the HQCG apps you can find in this forum? They have the complete database ready and can generate sets in a heartbeat. All you need to do is source the imagery.

This is what you really want:
