This is a command line helper tool for card creation of DotP 2013 (Card v2 format).
It reads card info from and generate a .xml file in card v2 format.
You still need to adjust some minor places (because the data on is not as perfect as it should be), but it still saves a lot of time for you, especially the multi-language part.

This tool requires Microsoft .NET Framework v2.0 or higher to run. You may download and install it from

If you find any bug or have any suggestion, please post it here so I can fix or upgrade it as best as I can.

Code: Select all
dotpcv2sd.exe <edition> <output> [specified-index]
<edition> - Edition initial letters, you may get them from
<output> - Output folder path
[specified-index] - Optional, only download the card with the specified index (card number)

Code: Select all
dotpcv2sd.exe gtc d:\dotpcards
This will generate all card files for GTC (Gatecrash)

Here is a sample of the generated file:
Code: Select all
<?xml version='1.0'?>

Not to be too picky, but I think this topic would have been more fitting in the Utilities section. :P Nice work anyway. :wink:

P.S.: I know a lot about badly organized data... there's a lot of it on Gatherer, too, especially in Gatecrash (Spanish and Portuguese abilities that aren't separated by return for example).

Yup, badly organized data are annoying...
I hope the data will be finally organized well someday...
