Magarena 1.70

Postby melvin » 07 Feb 2016, 09:11

The proxy image generator is able to make use of cropped card images in
creating the proxy image. Image download has been enchanced to allow
downloading of cropped images, though not every card has a cropped image.

When multiple image files are present for a card, the image used is based on
the following priority: custom > crops > cards/tokens > missing proxy.

Card abilities that reduce/increase mana cost of cards can now be scripted in
groovy code. However, additional costs such as kicker and buyback are not
affected by mana cost reduction.

Finally, this release adds 225 new cards and fixes 28 bugs.

Unless you are in the middle of doing this the link goes to 1.69 at the minute.
I may be missing something but no sign of 1.70.

Thanks for reporting and sorry about that. There was some unexpected problems updating the website due to a software upgrade on the hosting side. This has been fixed.

Can you add an option to turn off the undo button ?

Is there any decision to release Magearena on Android ?

Yes, but why would you want that option?

It's better to be an option

Sometimes disabling it can be fun for playing a serious duels

It's an opinion
Thanks for the great Magarena

Oh I see, remove from temptation and all that. An alternative approach is to add a "cheat" stat for when a player uses undo or views AI's hand (see issue #543).

Been a while since we've had a month with so many new cards implemented! Here's the list of cards with a 4+ Gatherer rating:

Colorless: Sphere of Resistance, Helm of Awakening, Thorn of Amethyst, Defense Grid

Black: Twilight's Call, Undead Warchief, Mercenary Knight, Nightscape Familiar, Heartless Summoning

Blue: Etherium Sculptor, Stormscape Familiar, Stonybrook Banneret, Chill

Green: Krosan Drover, Thornscape Familiar, Genesis Wave

Red: Thunderscape Familiar, Dragonspeaker Shaman

White: Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Daru Warchief, Kataki, War's Wage, Sunscape Familiar, Glowrider, Soul Snare, Scourglass

Multicolored: Animar, Soul of Elements, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Goblin Electromancer

Then there's the stuff with ratings that failed to update because they got reprinted and there aren't enough votes in Gatherer yet, such as Goblin Warchief, Lodestone Golem and the Medallion cycle (Sapphire Medallion). Great month for new cards, should stir things up in Firemind!

Unfortunately this isn't really due to there not being enough votes (in a way).
Voting for cards on Gatherer hasn't been functioning since the end of 2014, and there's no sight of it being fixed :(

Like, in my opinion, given how important these ratings are for the AI (if I understand correctly, they're a key part of how it evaluates the cards), I think that perhaps some kind of solution to this is going to be eventually necessary? If it only has to be done once, they could maybe be updated manually (I'd offer to help to do that). Of course, if they're reset to 2.5 with every update, that's a lot of work wasted.

Most of the reprinted cards have kept their values, although some may have slipped through before it was noticed. They are no longer being updated automatically.
The larger issue is that cards printed after Theros block have default values, so there's lots of cards the AI may not be evaluating as high as they could be. Possibly finding another rating site would be worthwhile.

I had a quick look around and located http://www.mtgassist.com/, which seems to use a system similar to Gatherer (site users can rate the cards). There are some discrepancies (Black Lotus: rating 9.57, Lotus Petal: rating 9.68), but Gatherer rating was far from perfect either in my opinion. Could this maybe be an option? I guess everything depends on whether it's possible to automatically extract these ratings to Magarena when it gets updated?

Well we already connect to Firemind to download the top decks. Seems to me that the Firemind service is ideally placed to have a card rating feature should Mr Firemind wish to do so. Just thought I would throw that out there! :wink:

Not sure what you're asking for exactly but I like the idea ;)

Adding a system where the users can rate the cards manually and publishing the average score via a json call? I could probably do this by tomorrow. The issue is just getting enough people involved in rating the cards.

There is also the option of parsing the the game logs and doing a card win percentage analysis like the mtggoldfish guys did for draft http://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/58k ... d-analyzed

Any then there is something even fancier floating around my head involving the game tree built by the AI and some back propagation to figure out what card ratings would help explore the tree best. Very unclear on how to do this yet so maybe it's just an idea for another time.

For now I'd be happy to start off with implementing the user-scored system in a first run. Let me know how you'd like to query the data and I'll set this up.
