Trouble with card art

Postby nivmizzet1 » 16 May 2013, 11:44

I'm hoping somebody here will be able to shed light on what I may have done wrong here.

I coded the flip cards Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant and Rune-Tail's Essence, but for some reason the art on both cards doesn't appear as it should.

On Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, the art appears in the right location (in the image box), but the image is stretched, as though it's stretched across the whole card. On Rune-Tail's Essence, the art is actually stretched across the whole card.

This happens because Rune-Tail's Essence has no casting cost and no forced color, so it's treated as a colorless nonland card which always wants a "full" image on DotP2013 (Eldrazi style). You should give the casting cost to Rune-Tail's Essence, too: after all this isn't transform, but flip, and if I'm not mistaken, the flipped version retains the card cost (for the cards that care about it).

Why it partially happens on Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, I have no idea, but I re-compressed your TDX files to my usual 126 KB size, try to use these.

Thanks. That seems to have done the job (in both cases).
