Yeap, you did it! Everything seems to work well now =D> =D> =D>

Nothing better than to wake up in morning and see there is a new update for one of your favourite app and see that update fixes those little things!

Thank you so much, once again, for your hard work! You're the boss =D> =D> =D> [-o<

Can we have several site support for cards's price ? As i notice cards from new sets have to wait long long time to update their price to mtgdb even months go by. Any chance we can use data from cardkingdom.com and mtggoldfish.com ? my friends said these sites are good source for price.

Hi aidscoi! This can be done, cardmarket.com because it's supported by scryfall.com

Man, that's awesome, thanks! I'll download it ASAP, I hadn't heard about it and I was calculating by myself through Google searches and the extensive use of a calculator how much this or this deck would cost...

Hi aidscoi! Your screenshot shows you are using windows powershell console.
In powershell you need to add .\ before executable file name:

.\Mtgdb.Util.exe

Lol, in fact if you read your screenshot to the end it tells you the same :)

thank you, i can't find any clue that fix the command. Also i saw MTGdb.Gui already have some cards of WAR set, not sure it's manually add by yourself or mtgjson but i'm thinking about the new feature which is allow we just use cards's images that been spoiled to create a temporary new set ( as even mtgjson take days, weeks to create data for whole set ) to pre-build deck with new cards. Maybe we just need to setting up image folder with Setcode and sub folders named White, Blue, Black, Red, Green, Lands, Artifact, Multicolor ( include planewalker cards ) to load and organize with just images. The deck build that way just can save to jpg file, not json file to separate from deck build with full data of cards.

Hi aidscoi. Doing deck building without mtgjson data is not viable, it's as difficult as writing yet another Mtgdb.Gui-like application and even much worse, because I would need to make the 2 approaches, data file & just images, coexist within a single application.

Still, something can be done to get the new cards before mtgjson.com release, but it requires developer's expertise.
Mtgjson gets its data from scryfall.com. If scryfall.com already has the new cards, then you could, by running mtjson.com scripts on your own machine (Unix or Mac) make the new datafile yourself.

Then replace All-sets.json file in Mtgdb.Gui and remove all \data\index\ subdirectories. It's hard, but it's the best that can be done.
I did a similar thing myself couple of month ago to release Mtgdb.Gui with newer data than published at mtgjson.com.

thank you for making it clear as i'm myself not a developer so don't know which is "easy" which is "hard" to do, also as i mentioned that mtgdb already have some WAR cards from spoiler with specific data so just suggest if we can do "just image feature" for impatient player who can't wait a little longer. In fact we already have 132/208 cards from spoiler appear in Mtgdb.Gui so i think it's ok

I downloaded and tried to open the software, but everything is a mess, with icons missing or shaded.

Can anyone give me some clues on what is wrong? I installed the Microsoft framework as needed but I can't attach an image or provide a link.

Thanks

Hi jesuseargo.

- Attach to next post a .zip with contents of Mtgdb.Gui\logs directory
- a screenshot with messed / missing icons
- which Windows version do you run? You can see it in My Computer -> Right mouse click -> Properties

P.S. I see, you cannot attach files in this forum. Send me the files to hidalgo@list.ru

I was able to reproduce the problem, the cause of distorted buttons is Classic Windows theme.
I will release a fix today or tomorrow.

Meanwhile, you can fix the problem by switching to "Windows 7 Basic" or any othere theme outside of "Basic and High Contrast Themes" category.

Themes can be selected at Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization
