Your project remind of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup which is a rogue like rpg that I just got hooked.

If you are not working on 3D yet it's a good idea to use ascii representation, it's a lot faster if you plan on focusing on programming first.

Thanks again for your effort Sonic!
You're welcome.

By the way, have you tried my updated card templates and mana symbols artwork in the SCV version?

viewtopic.php?f=56&t=3607

Just interested to see what you thought. :)

Somehow i completely missed that. Really nice work!

Guess we have to update the SCV basic folder soon to reduce the amount of needed Patches again.

I´ll most likely do that when the next patch is out, maybe earlier.

Thanx for the art update to the Golden Years Mod... which has quickly become the only way I play Draft/Sealed Deck. Also, thanx for the improved Card Templates and Mana Symbols... they really do look much better and should probably be the default templates for all releases. Your efforts are much appreciated!

I created a little tool to rename lots of files (mainly used it to rename avi´s , but it could be used for pretty much everything else).

Maybe useful to replace image names or whatever you want to.

http://www.salbei.spacequadrat.de/vb/Renamer.rar

note: It only searches the folder the program itself is located at. So you will have to move it to the files you want to replace.
This way you can´t accidentally rename things you don´t want to.

Maybe this is useful for you Sonic.

Can you also make a program that can batch replace a text with another in several files? ;)

I´m still learning and haven´t done that specific thing before, but it is possible.
I would need some more input on the task itself.
What kind of text ? Any similarities ?Any special format?
What kind of file ?

The amount of files won´t matter.
Things like .csv /excel tables could be a lot harder, i would have to read into that first if multiple "pages" and such things are involved.
My schedule is pretty tight right now - unless i got a good idea of what to do right away this will most likely take a while, but first i need more input.

Personally i am working a lot with .ini files for my game, i should be able to do that with both eyes closed by now .

...maybe these utilities could help.

Bulk Rename Utility

TextPad & WildEdit

I've been using these utilities for many years, they're simple and versatile... making it quick and easy to get your job done. ^_^

Nice didn't know them. They will be useful for mass renaming deck without having to redo them all :p

Added the latest Patch (May 03) -> viewtopic.php?f=85&t=4536

It is about time to create a new "Basic" folder (including the latest patch) so people don´t have to patch much.

I´m going to try to write a "updater" and include that one.
Edit: Done writing the tool -> viewtopic.php?f=56&t=4542

Going to gather the files for the next "SCV Basic Version" (patched to the recent update) now and eventually upload the result.

Edit:

Started Uploading the new SCV (patched up to 20110504 -> May Version V2).
I tried to remove EVERYTHING related to the Custom version (forum is already full with issues related with it).
The Download should be smaller now (161 MB instead of 217MB of the Old version), also it is just a Single .RAR file this time (instead of 3).

STATUS : ...still Uploading. (Should be complete in around 4 hours ... slow connection + wlan ftl)

Edit:
Status : Uploaded and linked

Unfortunately this version is already out of date ... May V3 is out (also linked)

Btw. Sonic´s alternated Manasymbols are now included too.
Prolly going to re-upload the latest version tomorrow :(

Compiled card art folders for 3rd May patch

These latest card art folders includes the following extra artwork:
Missing ‘Golem’ token artwork.
Alternative artwork for ‘Evil Presence’ from New Phyrexia.
Alternative artwork for ‘Bogardan Hellkite’ from Knights vs Dragons.
Rewards/Promo artwork for ‘Wheel of Fortune’ and 'Wasteland'.

Number of images in each folder once redundant artwork removed:
CardArtNew: 2883
CardArtLim: 3077

http://www.mediafire.com/?htxwnc0eem2oii3

As usual - delete your current CardArtNew and CardArtLim folders before installing these new ones.

All the best... Sonic

Thanks Sonic.
Updated the Latest Artwork(used your link).

There seem to be a few problems with the latest patch (see the patch topic) so i won´t update the SCV Folder for now.

Right, after one false start we’ll try it again.

Compiled card art folders for 3rd May Golden Years patch.

Includes the following extra artwork:
Unofficial ‘Reflection’ token artwork.
Alternative artwork for ‘Jackal Pup’ from Fire & Lightning.
Rewards/Promo artwork for ‘Wheel of Fortune’ and Wasteland.

Number of images in folder:
CardArtGY: 2972

http://www.mediafire.com/?bjc8lrkywgdmqrl

You probably know the procedure by now – but anyway. Delete your current CardArtGY folder to ensure the redundant artwork is removed before installing the new folder.

All the best… Sonic.

OK, no problem.

I noticed Gargaroz has copied 128 old cards from the earlier expansions from the Constructed game over to the Golden Years mod. I suspect this is the start of a clear out of the Constructed game to make way for more cards from the more recent expansions.

I don't know what other think about this, but the Golden Years mod is actually looking more like I would have imagined the game would have been like had Microprose continued with it's development after '97.
:D
