Ps : do you think we can add feature that can update value of cards from trade market
Maybe. Can you suggest some specific marketplace website to get prices from?

Hi, we already have card count feature ( at first it just for magic duels i guess ) but honestly i think we can make it's easier and visually
also i think we can add a check box for " My collection "
Accepted. Have to think how to implement this.

the symbol of rarelity is wrong
Accepted, thanks for reporting :)

Awesome suggestion. This way 'maybe' turns to 'Accepted' :)

Hi. Sorry for the bug. I fixed it and re-uploaded Mtgdb.Gui.v1.3.5.zip

The collection is saved in History\*.json files, but the format is different from MagicDuelsCards.txt. So the old collection, if you had one, has to be re-input manually.

Maybe using search string will make that easier. For each line in your collection you may use a search string like Name:Exquisite Archangel and press Ctrl+Enter

avoid reset the card count in collection
Hi, aidscoi! If you have not re-input your collection yet I have a better solution for you.
  • Run the previous version \bin\v1.3.4\Mtgdb.Gui.exe
  • Set the custom filter to 'Count In Magic Duels' > 0
  • Add N copies to deck where N is count in collection
  • Save the deck
  • Run current Mtgdb.Gui version
  • Open the saved deck
  • Set the collection count by using Alt+mouse right click
    • in deck area
    • Or in search result area after setting the filter 'Deck Only'

In history folder alway have the 0.json file, but then the program will create 1.json files ( not sure if other json files will be create or just 2 ), which file will save the cards count or each time we update new version we have to backup all the json files in history folder ?

1.json, 2.json and so on are for different tabs.
As the collection is common to all tabs it is saved in all *.json files.

Hi, i have some HD images of cards's artwork so i want to test
1. if i add the path into Mtgdb.Gui.xml file with zoom allow and keep the file name same as the card, when scroll through just have a glitch moment ( test if have other version of the card beside the version in exact set - in this case the artwork from older or new sets )
2. I remove the path of the HQ ( mine using HQ because the quality of MQ not consistent, some of them low quality than others ) and just keep the path to artwork folder then it works but the width stay the same as the size of zoomed cards's width

Not sure why the first test not have the result as the second test, so maybe you can configure out or add new setting in the app, line in the xml file for set the path of artwork folder with zoom function ( with new size, maybe limit the width to half of the screen size ).

Currently we don't have side deck, but i think we can add a button to switch between main and side deck but the print function still print all the card ( recognize by the background color of side deck or something )

Hello!
1. if i add the path into Mtgdb.Gui.xml file with zoom allow and keep the file name same as the card, when scroll through just have a glitch moment ( test if have other version of the card beside the version in exact set - in this case the artwork from older or new sets )
I am affraid I do not understand what do you mean by 'glitch moment'. I will try to guess.

So you have a separate folder with HQ images. Suppose it is
Code: Select all
D:\mtg_artwork\
I guess you modified the config located at
Code: Select all
D:\Games\Mtgdb.Gui\etc\Mtgdb.Gui.xml
adding 1 path as follows:
Code: Select all
<Directory Path="D:\mtg_artwork" Zoom="True" />
If so, as a result when zooming card and scrolling you will get all zoom images you had before + 1 custom image from your new directory.

2. I remove the path of the HQ
After this when zoomed I expect that you only get your custom artwork, which is what you are trying to achieve.

but the width stay the same as the size of zoomed cards's width
As I see from the screenshot you have normal non-zoomed images and zoomed image with your custom artwork.
Obviously it is somehow different from what you want. The problem is I fail to realize what is your goal. Please explain what is your purpose:
* Do you want to replace zoomed, non-zoomed or both images with your custom images.
* Do you want your custom images be the only images showin with program, or somehow mixed.

Currently we don't have side deck
I am missing this functionality too, and it will be the first to add.

I've test again and the first option is work ( i think first test failed because the artwork's name not correct ). The goal i want is when we zoom the card and start scroll midle mouse, the progam will show all zoom cards ( from current result and other version in different sets and reprints with new artworks from new sets ) and all arworks.

The program show artwork nicely now but i notice that if we have some version of artworks.
example : i tested with 2 artworks of Cancel card ( illustrated by David Palumbo and Karl Kopinski ) and Act of treason ( illustrated by Eric Deschamps and Mathew Stewart ) the program after show the full card versions then just 1 version of artwork ( i guess it count the number of card name in database json file and at this time not set to show extra number of artwork ) and even wrong artwork of the card version i get from result.

I'm on the progress of finding HD artworks so i used to use string filter with artist name but the result sometime show the same card's name but not the right card with artwork of the artists. I guess the program mostly find by card's name than other string values ( Set Code is the one i think still work best if we want to exact version of artwork in result ).

Because showing artwork is just an extra feature for users have interested in MTG artworks and have a collection of images in their HDD so i think we just need add zoom feature for artwork in each zoom card ( and if the filter work right the artwork will show exact the artwork on the card, not arwork of other versions from other artists ). That why i think better have different setting point to new path just for artwork and we can control the size will show of the artwork ( i prefer that artwork can be show in full size or reach atleast height or width of full screen and have same option when right click for open file, show in explorer ..ect ).

Ps : i attacked some images suggest this might be
