Whoever can upload should use something like http://www.mirrorcreator.com/, since a lot of people don't like Mega upload either. Still, I don't know why someone couldn't use a torrent, since you don't need to install a torrent client anymore, and you don't even have to forward a port.

Hi,
I'm very impressed with the wonderful work you've done in keeping this great program alive. I installed it along with the magictg_2009_to_2011_patch patch. However, I did find a few cards that are not working correctly:

Merfolk Assasin :
1. Cast Fish Liver Oil on to a creature to give it Islandwalk.
2. Was unable to use the Merfolk Assasin's (no summoning sickness) ability to: Destroy target creature with Islandwalk.

Mox Diamond:
1. When attempting to cast this artifact, one is not given the chance to sacrifice a land to complete it's summoning, thereby it is placed in the player's graveyard.

I'll look into the Fishliver Oil / Merfolk Assassin combination.

I think you might be reading Mox Diamond wrong:

When Mox Diamond comes into play, choose and discard a land or sacrifice Mox Diamond.
{T}: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.

You have to 'discard' a land card from your hand - not 'sacrifice' one in play.

If you attempt to cast Mox Diamond without having a land card in hand to discard, Mox Diamond will automatically go to the graveyard.

I think Aswan jaguar is referring to the post on disabling Windows 7 'Data Execution Prevention' for MTGlauncher.exe and Shandalar.exe.

As far as I understand it, the DEP in Window 7 now regards some of the coding in old 16-bit programs as presenting a security threat, and will shut them down when the program makes certain system calls. So you need to stop the DEP checking these programs when they're run.

Go to My computer > Right click it and click Properties
At the left part of your window click > remote setttings
Click the Advanced Tab
Under Performance > Click Settings (the uppermost most button)
Now Click the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) tab
Select
o Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select

click add, and browse your MagicTG Folder(Game installation folder) and select MTGlauncher.exe

click add again then select Shandalar.exe

I tested this myself and shandalar should now work fine on your Windows 7 system

A great problem with the program has been the fact much of it was hard coded. So, although the installer says you can install the game anywhere, it has been found that is some cases installing it anywhere other than the default directory can cause problems, as the program insists on looking for its resource files in hard coded directories.

If you're running Windows7 64 we usually advise people to install the game to ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\’ - you might try this if you haven't already

Another trick that's know to work for missing text in the game, is to disable the 'Visual Themes' option.

I've checked, and found the Merfolk Assassin is at fault - but even after checking and modifying the csv values the card fails to work.

I went on to check the Merfolk Assassin card in the later development versions of the game, and it appears the card has been recoded to get it to work using the later added C++ mods.

Unfortunately, this means as all the cards in the ISO were coded in ASM we have no way to fix it at present. Sorry.

That is where I have the game installed via default.

How would I go about doing this?
