Onslaught -- tried my hand at creating a world, but have some problems.

I converted some decks from online to the Forge .dck "Duel" format. After getting Forge to load without crashing (weird how important giving duels a "Name=" line is , lol), I began dueling. I created a wall of creatures and waited for the AI to act, but noticed in some cases it was getting a full hand and then discarding.

This is one of their decks:
Code: Select all
Name=The Claw by Darwin Kastle
Title=The Serpents
Difficulty=very hard
Description=The Claw by Darwin Kastle
Icon=The Serpents.jpg
Deck Type=constructed

2 Contested Cliffs|C13
11 Forest|RTR
8 Mountain|RTR
4 Wooded Foothills|KTK
4 Goblin Clearcutter|LNG
4 Imperial Hellkite|LNG
4 Kilnmouth Dragon|LNG
4 Krosan Tusker|C13
4 Ravenous Baloth|C13
3 Rorix Bladewing|ONS
4 Wirewood Elf|ONS
4 Explosive Vegetation|CN2
4 Starstorm|C14

2 Insurrection|CMD
4 Naturalize
4 Shock
4 Silklash Spider|C14
1 Slice and Dice|C13
This is a 6th place deck from one of the Block tourneys at the time. While some of the cards might have different editions listed inside this deck, I know for sure that these cards were present in either Onslaught, Legions, or Scourge.

AI was discarding Imperial Hellkite and Kilnmouth Dragon, (strangely i'm missing pictures for these two as well). When hovered over them in the graveyard, I got a message to the effect of "Forge does not support this card".
I suspect the AI was also holding onto Rorix Bladewing , but not totally sure. Dragons are broken...?

I've managed to make a script to convert some real decks from an "mwDeck" format, like found in the mtgtop8 site, into the .dck one Forge likes. Initially I threw it at a few I found for Onslaught (sadly too few), and as I mentioned previously, the AI cant seem to play its star dragon cards =( Maybe in the future these cards will be fixed ;D

Anyway, attached are some Duels!
- 2002.09 Onslaught troublesome duels due to broken dragon cards
- 2016.04 Shadows over Innistrad duels based on great decks from the big Pro Tour Eldritch Moon, Sydney 2016, near the end of the block, Standard format. I've manually added how these decks have placed in their names. I've played against a few, and the AI seems to be playing these fine.
- 2016.09 Kaladesh duels based on great deck decks from the big Pro Tour Kaladesh, Dublin 2017, near the end of the block, Standard format. Here too the decks have placements in their names. Only played a little, but seems okay.

I only have duels here; challenges still needed.

1) extract to res/quest/world
2) change res/quest/world/worlds.txt to have these lines:
Code: Select all
Name:2002.09 Onslaught|Dir:2002.09 Onslaught|Sets:ONS, LGN, SCG
Name:2016.04 Shadows over Innistrad|Dir:2016.04 Shadows over Innistrad|Sets:SOI, EMN
Name:2016.09 Kaladesh|Dir:2016.09 Kaladesh|Sets:KLD, AER, MPS

I had typos for Onslaught legions edition that were causing the cards to not work (I had LNG, when it should've been either LE or LGN). Attached is fixed Onslaught and a challenge, "Break the Bubble". Enjoy =)
