Laterna Magica version 2010/09/04

Postby silly freak » 04 Sep 2010, 16:57

Proudly announcing the first version of Laterna Magica!

  • Requires Java 1.6
  • Building and saving decks
  • LQ gatherer card pictures and symbols
  • Playing against yourself (you are both players) using the new combat rules (in fact, everything that *is* working should work according to the newest rules.)
  • currently only lands and vanilla creatures (oh, and Llanowar Elves)

I think it's clear from the feature list that this won't give you the most fun Magic experience, but if you want to try the GUI and possibly give a little feedback, go ahead.

Download Laterna Magica: lm20100904.7z

Downlaod required libraries: lm20100904-lib.7z
The libraries are separate so that you don't need to download them along with subsequent versions (they take ~9.4MB).

On the first startup, an error will be shown. Just click it away, it should not show up again.
I strongly suggest to have Laterna Magica in its own directory.
After Unpacking lm20100904.7z, unpack lm20100904-lib.7z besides the contained jar.
On the first startup, Laterna Magica will unpack some resources and finish the "installation". After that, these directories will exist:

Code: Select all
.../lm20100904/LaternaMagica-20100904.jar
.../lm20100904/lib/...
.../lm20100904/res/...
.../res/...

${user.home}/.slightlymagic.net/laterna/...
Note that only a part lies within "lm20100904"; this means that card pictures, decks etc. will automatically be found in newer versions. Be sure to remove everything when you don't want Laterna Magica any more.

where's the "trust me, that will work!" switch for the compiler?

Haven't checked the source but this should be an easy fix, probably you don't create the file before accessing it.

hmm... this seems to be platform incompatibility. unix paths always start with "/", but windows with the drive letter. it seems my path-to-url conversion doesn't handle it right and thinks "C" is the protocol. I'll look into it, thanks

It wasn't even run on C drive so no clue why it chose that. Maybe "/" root translates to C drive however you use it.

no, LM creates user-specific data in your home directory, which is on C:
