New Installation: Image-Download and Mixed Pictures

Postby KnightErrant » 16 Nov 2017, 09:46

Hello everyone,

I'm a new user of XMage and had some problems with the card pictures. Some other users also reported such problems.
The good news is: I fixed the major one.

Problem 1:
You have a new installation of XMage and press the images-button to download all the missing card pictures.
A small window apears saying "Get all available cards from the repository". After a short time the text changes to "Check which cards are missing."
And this will take till Armageddon...
When you have a look at the java-status-window of the client and read the messages you will see, that there is a line with an violation of the naming-rules with the card "Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix""... There are quotation marks " used instead of '.
This is already mentioned at the devolopers-bug-list at github: /magefree/mage/issues/4148
[forum-system prevents me from posting links...]

What I have done:
I created the zip-archive manually and put one single image file in it, named [Pang Tong, 'Young Phoenix'.full.jpg] (exluding the brackets).
So you will have an archive-Entry: PTK.zip/PTK/Pang Tong, 'Young Phoenix'.full.jpg
You can make an individual scan of the card, download it from anywhere or use a photo of your girlfriend... :D

Now the client should be able to complete his search for missing cards and go on to the download. This leads to...

Problem 2:
Some of the downloaded pictures are switched. So you will have an [Forest] with the card picture of a [Wall of Swords] and many others. Affected are especially the older sets. There seems to be a problem either in the sources or in the re-naming-procedure of the client...
In one of the threads is the hint to clear the whole folder and download the files form only one source (wizards). [Remember to leave the Pang Tong in his folder...or you will have Problem 1 again :roll: ]
I've tried it and downloaded all the files from wizards but the confusion still exists.

Maybe my work-around for #1 helps some others...
But please: find a solution for #2

I agree, can this be dumbed down for us simpletons please? I tried reinstalling the program and even tried installing it on another computer and I get stuck on the same phase. Any help would be great! Thanks :)

Hello Malficar, hi ZeroEight,
this seems to be the same type of problem that I discribed above. Have you tried to put a correct named card in the appropriate zip-File in your images-folder?
So you should have Kongming, 'Sleeping Dragon'.full.jpg AND Pang Tong, 'Young Phoenix'.full.jpg in the same zip-folder: PTK.zip/PTK/.
Please recognize you have an additional folder in the zip-file. So I suggest: put the to files in an new folder (named PTK) anywhere on your PC. Then zip it with the name PTK.zip and move it completely to your images-Folder of XMage.

I solved it with gatherer extractor and this file of abbreviations modified by me (remove .txt extension from the attachment and put file in data folder of gatherer).

Abreviations.cfg.txt
(10.99 KiB) Downloaded 61 times

- used gatherer version: 4.3b
- card source: magiccards.info
- deselect conflux edition (it procure an error)

As with those above, I get the idea of what the problem is here - autodownloader getting stuck because there are " instead of ' on a card name. But in terms of creating a file to bypass the issue I haven't the foggiest of what this folder/file are supposed to be or where I'm supposed to create them. I look in my xmage folder and see nothing like "images" as a subfolder where I would add or create anything to solve the problem :S

Presumably the developers (?) know this and will release a fix soon (?) Pretty big bug for anyone doing a new install!
