There's options in duel.dat to choose which icon to use for cards with multiple printings. The screenshot above uses
It's nice to know the grunt work is not all for naught. :lol:

Can I assume the symbols coding is somewhat similar to the P/T box? Will it be be possible to restrict the icons to only showing on the large card?

Oh yeah, and I wanted to ask. The small card text parameters being limited to left justified X/Y positioning - is this set in hardcoding stone?

Yes; icon visibility and placement is specified separately for smallcards and fullcards. So is suppression of the icon for core sets earlier than 6th edition and suppression of the rarity color for expansions earlier than Exodus. The priority rules for choosing between expansions is shared between smallcards and fullcards.

The power/toughness in the lower right of the smallcards are drawn by the exe, so they're out of scope for now. The title text can be centered or right-justified without much effort, though I don't expect good results between the mana stripes (also drawn by the exe) and the occasional over-long card name.

It was the over-long card names I was really just concerned with.
Purely from an aesthetic point of view, whilst its useful being able to adjust the height and the left justification offset using the TitleX=8, TitleY=-8 parameters to compensate for the card art now having defined text banners as per the modern paper stock cards. Its just a bit messy with the text running off the right hand side the small card past the end of the banner as drawn on the card art.

Minor niggles apart - the new Drawcardlib is akin to tuning a Formula 1 racing car in comparison to the limited tweaking available to the original games roller skate.

New version in the first post. Besides the new features listed there, these new options were added to DuelArt/Duel.dat (the first replaces TitleX and TitleY):
Code: Select all
[SmallCard]
;Bounding box of title text, based on a logical size of 800x1120.
;Defaults TitleLeft=8, TitleTop=-8, TitleWidth=800, TitleHeight=1120.
TitleLeft = 8
TitleTop = -8
TitleWidth = 800
TitleHeight = 1120
;If set to 1, one of the images in CardArt/expansion_symbols.pic will be
;displayed on smallcards according to the card's expansion and rarity.  The
;image should contain a grid of 20 x 25 images: four rarities times five
;expansions wide, and 25 expansions tall.  Transparent borders around the
;subimages are unnecessary.
;Defaults ExpansionVisible=0.
ExpansionVisible = 0
;Bounding box for the expansion symbols, if they're visible.
;Defaults ExpansionLeft=587, ExpansionTop=9,
;         ExpansionWidth=208, ExpansionHeight=147.
ExpansionLeft = 587
ExpansionTop = 9
ExpansionWidth = 208
ExpansionHeight = 147
;If set to 1, then expansion symbols aren't drawn for core sets that didn't
;have them in print (Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Revised, Fourth Edition, and Fifth
;Edition).
;Defaults ExpansionNoEarlyCoreSets=0.
ExpansionNoEarlyCoreSets = 0
;If set to 1, then only the Common symbol is drawn for expansions that didn't
;indicate rarity in print (Stronghold and earlier, and Portal 2nd Age - the
;first column in expansion_symbols.pic except for Exodus).
;Defaults ExpansionNoEarlyRarity=0.
ExpansionNoEarlyRarity = 0
;If set to 1, 2, 3, or 4, then all symbols are forced to a particular rarity:
;1 is common, 2 is uncommon, 3 is rare, 4 is special/mythic rare.  Overrides
;ExpansionNoEarlyRarity.
;Defaults ExpansionForceRarity=0.
ExpansionForceRarity = 0
[FullCard]
;If set to non-zero, then this configuration file is reread whenever a fullcard
;is drawn, so you don't have to restart Manalink continuously when adjusting
;the values.  This is, of course, fairly slow, so you don't want to leave it on
;once you've got settings you like.  It won't work for the [fonts] section, nor
;reload any images, though; and things will break horribly if
;PowertoughnessBoxVisible or both the ExpansionVisible options were turned off
;at startup but are turned on later.
;Defaults RereadConfigOnRedraw=0.
RereadConfigOnRedraw = 0
;If set to 1, one of the images in CardArt/expansion_symbols.pic will be
;displayed on fullcards according to the card's expansion and rarity.
;Defaults ExpansionVisible=1.
ExpansionVisible = 1
;Bounding box for the expansion symbols, if they're visible.
;Defaults ExpansionLeft=630, ExpansionTop=666,
;         ExpansionWidth=104, ExpansionHeight=53.
ExpansionLeft = 638
ExpansionTop = 666
ExpansionWidth = 104
ExpansionHeight = 53

;have them in print (Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Revised, Fourth Edition, and Fifth
;Edition).
;Defaults to [SmallCard]ExpansionNoEarlyCoreSets.
ExpansionNoEarlyCoreSets = 0
;If set to 1, then only the Common symbol is drawn for expansions that didn't
;indicate rarity in print (Stronghold and earlier, and Portal 2nd Age - the
;first column in expansion_symbols.pic except for Exodus).
;Defaults to [SmallCard]ExpansionNoEarlyRarity.
ExpansionNoEarlyRarity = 0
;If set to 1, 2, 3, or 4, then all symbols are forced to a particular rarity:
;1 is common, 2 is uncommon, 3 is rare, 4 is special/mythic rare.  Overrides
;ExpansionNoEarlyRarity.
;Defaults to [SmallCard]ExpansionForceRarity.
ExpansionForceRarity = 0
[Expansions]
;If set to 1, then if a card has been printed in multiple expansions of the
;same priority (according to the Priority* options below), then the latest of
;those expansion/rarity symbols is used, instead of the earliest.  The ordering
;used is the same as in the column headings in the first line of Manalink.csv.
;Defaults LatestPrinting=0.
LatestPrinting = 0
;Priority given to core sets (Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Revised, Fourth through
;Tenth Edition, Magic 2010 through 2014) when choosing which expansion/rarity
;to use for cards with multiple printings.  The expansion/rarity with the
;highest priority number is used.
;Defaults PriorityCore=10.
PriorityCore = 10
;Priority given to expert-level sets (Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Legends, The
;Dark, Fallen Empires, Homelands, and the three-set blocks).
;Defaults PriorityExpert=10.
PriorityExpert = 10
;Priority given to portal/starter sets (Portal, Portal Second Age, Portal Three
;Kingdoms, Starter 1999, Start 2000).
;Defaults PriorityPortal=7.
PriorityPortal = 7
;Priority given to reprint sets (Chronicles, Masters Edition I-IV, Modern
;Masters).
;Defaults PriorityReprint=6.
PriorityReprint = 6
;Priority given to casual-format sets (Planechase, Archenemy, Commander,
;Planechase 2012, Commander's Arsenal).
;Defaults PriorityCasual=4.
PriorityCasual = 4
;Priority given to the astral cards and the promotional pseudo-set (used, e.g.,
;for book inserts like Mana Crypt).
;Defaults PriorityPromo=3.
PriorityPromo = 3
;Priority given to box sets (Battle Royale, Beatdown, and the From the Vault
;series).
;Defaults PriorityBox=2.
PriorityBox = 2
;Priority given to prebuilt decks (the Duel Decks: X vs. Y series and Premium
;Decks series).
;Defaults PriorityDecks=1.
PriorityDecks = 1
[Frames]
;Percent of a hybrid frame's width that should be a blend of its two source
;frames.  For example, when set to 20, a white-blue hybrid card will be 40%
;white, 40% blue, and 20% a blend.  Hybrid frames are disabled if this is below
;0.  Values above 100 are valid, though, and result in an image where even the
;far left and right are still a blend.
;
;Right now, this is only used for the ten beta dual lands and the ten
;guildmages in the Ravnica block, and they'll incorrectly always show up as
;their original colors if they have two or more.  (That is, if you take an
;Azorius Guildmage, Lifelace him to green, and Ghoulflesh him so he's black,
;too, he'll still show up as blue and white.)
;
;And yes, I know the mixed watermarks in the duals is ugly beyond belief.  And
;yes, I know the original duals used concentric rectangles.  And yes, I know
;two-color duals didn't start using two-color frames until about sixth edition.
;That's part of why this is still disabled.
;
;Defaults PercentMixedOnHybrid=-1.  30 seems about right.
PercentMixedOnHybrid = -1

Re: Drawcardlib revisited

I'm going to need a hand identifying all the frame variants that have been printed. Off the top of my head, there's:
  • Original:
    • White/blue/black/red/green/gold/artifact
    • 5 basic land types
    • 10 alpha/beta dual lands (e.g. Savannah). Low priority.
    • Multicolored land (City of Brass; Fifth Edition version of Adarkar Wastes)
    • 10 different two-color lands (Sixth Edition version of Adarkar Wastes)
    • Expansion-specific lands (e.g., Antiquities lands had peach text boxes and orange borders; The Dark and Alliances had mauve boxes and purple borders, with the shade varying slightly between the two; Fallen Empires was pink and red; Homelands was cyan and green; Ice Age was light blue and violet). Very low priority, though I'll probably pick one to use for colorless lands.
    • The little tombstone in the upper left in the original printing of Anger and so on
    • Tokens. Someone else can do the classic versions if they want; they're too ugly for me to want to put any effort into them. (The modern ones are fine.)
  • Modern:
    • White/blue/black/red/green
    • 5 basic land types
    • 17 nonbasic land: 1 colorless, 5 single-colored (but nonbasic), 10 two-colored, one for 3+ colors
    • 11 gold: one for each pair of colors, one for 3+; these all use the gold power/toughness box
    • 10 two-color hybrid; these all use the colorless power/toughness box, not the one matching their right-hand color
    • 17 artifact: 1 colorless, 5 single-colored, 10 two-colored, one for 3+ colors; the single-colored ones use the colored p/t boxes, the 2+ colored ones all use the gold p/t box, and colorless ones use a blue-grey p/t box different from the one for other colorless and hybrid cards.
    • 17 planeswalker: 5 single-colored, 1 for 3+ colored (Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker), 1 colorless (Karn Liberated), and ten two-color combinations. I don't currently plan on implementing the bit of art that pops out over the frame. Placement of the loyalty boxes on the left and bottom right is also very low priority; maybe use the same mechanism as mana symbols for that. Unlike Eldrazi/Ghostfire below, we could just put full-art images in for these and make the rules box translucent, and they'd mostly work just fine; but getting the middle band of the rules box, which is more transparent than the top and bottom, to line up with the different abilities in the text will be more trouble than it's worth.
    • 5 plane-shifted from Planar Chaos
      • Title/type/powertoughness text is in white, with a black shadow to the lower-left. (Is the font the same as with other modern card frames, besides the color and shadow?)
    • A bunch of multiframe variants like Fire // Ice, which I won't be attempting anytime soon
    • Another bunch of multiframe variants with fuse like Beck // Call, which I also won't be attempting anytime soon
    • A bunch of future-shifted from Future Sight, which I won't be attempting in the near or distant future, either. Easier than I'd thought.
    • Four miracle from Avacyn Restored, and should probably make black, colorless, and multicolored versions to deal with lacing and the like. Fortunately, they're all instants and sorceries, so won't be able to interact with the Nyx frames.
    • The various transforming ones in Innistrad block. There's a frame modification for the normal side, and a different frame for transformed. Anyone have a list?
      • Title/type/powertoughness text is in white on the reverse frames, and the power-toughness boxes are different, too.
      • I can enable another two framesets for the one transforming planeswalker, but it seems like a lot of bother for one card. I'm sure not going to make the template myself.
    • A zillion different variants of the Ravnica and Mirran/Phyrexian watermarks. Hm. (Ten Ravnica guilds)*(artifact, color 1, color 2, hybrid, gold, land) is 60 there. (Phyrexian/Mirran)*(w/u/b/r/g/artifact/land/gold?) is probably short of 20. I might come up with something to add these in (short of having a whole different frame type for each combination, which is clearly unmanageable), if someone feels up to assembling a list of links to images for all the different combinations that actually occur.
    • Colorless non-land non-artifacts from Rise of the Eldrazi, plus Ghostfire. Like planeswalkers, I'm don't currently plan on implementing the translucent rules box, and am unsure in general what to do here. The current artifact frame is clearly wrong, though. It would be nice to be able to tell Cardartlib to load a full-art variant for these; if we just put a full-art image in, they'll look very wrong if they somehow become colored.
    • Nyx frame overlays - one for each color, plus artifact, colorless, land, and gold.
    • The level-up cards have level indicators on the left and extra power/toughness boxes on the right, sort of like with Planeswalkers; doable but low priority. The differing saturation on the rules box, like the planeswalker rules box translucency, will be difficult.
    • Tokens. Shouldn't be rough. Needs support for the varying-width title plaque and colored titled font. As with futureshifts, no current plans to make a variant for the textless ones.
    • Vehicles from Kaladesh. - done, but only with the M15 frame.
    • Conspiracies (with the CNS frame and with the colored CN2 frames)
  • M15 (Postmodern?): All configurable, but no art supplied.
    • Probably nearly everything in the Modern list.
    • Plus holostamp for rares and mythics.
    • A planeswalker version. With-holostamp only.
    • Transform front-and-back versions for without-holostamp, with-holostamp, and planeswalker-with-holostamp.
  • Archenemy schemes. These currently don't have artwork at all; they're shown with a dialog (with so much text that it overruns a buffer in do_dialog, with variously catastrophic results). Actual cards would be better. Frames for them should be easy. Getting do_dialog() to show a card that doesn't actually exist is somewhat harder.
  • Vanguard cards. Would be easy, except the actual vanguard frames are so horribly ugly that I refuse to implement them. Maybe someone somewhere's made a reasonably ok looking variant.
  • Planes and phenomena. The frames themselves are easy; displaying them horizontally is horrendously difficult.
What am I missing?

If anyone's still using classic style card frames (brown artifacts, etc.), speak up and I'll support them in the next release (or show you how if you're willing to help out); otherwise, I'd just as soon leave them broken until both they and the modern style card frames can both be used at once.

Well, the new frame for small card title is too bright for the white text, and I am not fond of the black color for card title so I guess you can count me in for testing, though I will need the original frame since I overwritten them with the new ones without backup (yes I know bad behavior :P)

New update in first post.
New options in Duel.dat | Open

;Color of outline around edge of artwork. Not drawn if any value is below 0.

ArtOutlineColorR = -1
ArtOutlineColorG = -1

ArtOutlineColorG = -1
ArtOutlineColorB = -1
;Bounding box for watermarks and the large mana symbols on basic lands. (This
;is moved upward if the rules box is expanded.)
;
;The images should be in CardArt/watermarks.pic and consist of four
;equally-tall rows of five equally-wide images each. The first row, left to
;right, is Black, Blue, Green, Red, and White. The second row is Azorius,
;Dimir, Rakdos, Gruul, and Selesnya. The third row is Orzhov, Golgari, Simic,
;Izzet, and Boros. The fourth row is Phyrexian, Mirran, and three unused.
;
;The ten guild watermarks on lines two and three all got changed somewhat for
;the Return to Ravnica block. I suppose these variants should be supported.
;I couldn't find usable art when putting these together, though and I'm frankly
;tired of trying to get these to look reasonably good without including two
;dozen different variants of each watermark (one for each background they can
;appear on). So if someone wants to make the images, let me know and I'll send
;you the psd.
;
;Which cards get which watermarks is determined by ./watermarks.csv. Each line
;should consist of a card id number (from manalink.csv), a semicolon, and a
;watermark name; optionally followed by a semicolon and comment. If a negative
;number is seen for the id, no further lines are read - useful for documenting
;e.g. split cards with different watermarks on each half that can't be fully
;displayed right now. (Of course, those could have been done by picking one
;half to display and documenting the other half in the comment, but I chose to
;leave them entirely unwatermarked.)
;
;Watermarks can be disabled by emptying out watermarks.csv, or emptying it
;except for the five basic lands at the top if you want to keep those.

;Duel Decks: Izzet vs. Golgari, Modern Masters, and the nine expansions in the
;Ravnica, Scars of Mirrodin, and Return to Ravnica blocks (should there be
;others?), as determined by the displayed expansion symbol (or the expansion
;symbol that would be displayed if they're turned off). Relevant for cards
;reprinted in or from these blocks (e.g. Disperse gets the Mirran watermark
;when shown with the Scars of Mirrodin expansion symbol, but not if shown with
;the Morningtide symbol from its original printing or the the Magic 2014 symbol
;from its later reprint).
;Defaults WatermarkOutsideSet=0.

[Frames]
;Percent of a hybrid frame's width that should be a blend of its two source
;frames. (This includes two-color lands, like Rootbound Crag, two-color
;artifacts, like Mage Slayer, and two-color gold cards, like Apocalypse Hydra,
;in addition to true hybrid cards like Gruul Guildmage.)
;
;For example, when set to 20, a white-blue hybrid card will be 40% white, 40%
;blue, and 20% a blend. Two-color frames are disabled if this is below 0, and

;colorless non-land, non-artifact cards, and are handled identically to other
;frames.
;
;Otherwise, the art for colorless non-land, non-artifact cards is stretched
;over the entire frame, and only CardOv_Colorless is drawn over the art.
;(Typically you'll want that to be translucent; about 75% opacity works well.)
;Additional options are set by adding the numbers below:
;
;+1: The art is also drawn in its normal place on fullcards, which alleviates
;the distortion a bit. (The smallcard art is always over the whole card area
;for non-negative values.)
;
;+2: No frame at all is drawn on smallcards.

ok so i tested the new setup and when i use the backgrounds of yours korath everything is good. when i use Sonics modern backgrounds this is what happens...mind you all i did is change the names so the right pic file would load up. nothing else at this time. i originally copied my latest info so i could use the modern borders but there are 2 bounding boxes that have a different sizes and border colors

That's because it's compositing the smaller-sized CardOv_R image from the manalink3 makeover over the larger CardBk_Red image from Sonic's more recent mod.

Until he has a new version out, you can use the alternate config near the end of the Duel.dat I included - comment out the current CardBk_ and CardOv_ lines, then uncomment the ones after ";A different example config that uses the previous imagery, all in CardArt dir:".
