Manalink Update 2016/08/27: Eldritch Moon v2

Postby Korath » 08 Aug 2016, 03:07

(Wizards of the Coast totally dropped the ball by not making this set's code EMO. Totally.)

This patch adds 843 cards, primarily from Commander 2015, Oath of the Gatewatch, Shadows over Innistrad, and Eldritch Moon. The raw git commit log since the January 2016 BFZv2 patch is attached.

Please set your expectations lower than usual for this release, sorry. Several factors have converged to reduce expected stability:
  • Gargaroz, who did the C15/OGW/SOI cards, had to abruptly suspend work on this for personal reasons, and I've packaged his cards with almost no checking. So please blame me, not him, for the bugs, which are sure to be legion: they're inevitable when using code that the developer hasn't signed off on.
  • The EMN cards were done as an afterthought at the last minute by me, and have received no testing whatsoever, so they're unlikely to fare any better. (This is also why there's comparatively few of them: by the time I began to program them, it was too late to request art for any that weren't already going to be in the upcoming Shandalar release.)
  • This is the first Manalink release since passing the 16384-card limit. This required, among other things, a rewrite of the deckbuilder (as mentioned in that link), in which I am only moderately confident.
On the plus side, we have a new artwork maintainer, drool66, who has done an excellent job with very little instruction or advance notice. Notwithstanding that, I've been instructed to pass on a plea for feedback on image quality, a subject which I'm utterly unable to judge.

This and future patches can only be installed over a Manalink installation of version BFZv2 (January 2016) or later. You must update to that first if you haven't yet. To upgrade from an existing BFZv2 or EMNv1 installation:
  1. If you think you might ever have any interest at all in compiling this yourself, delete your existing src/ directory.
  2. Folks who like to tinker with things should be aware that this package will overwrite your Manalink configuration (in ./config.txt) and Drawcardlib configuration (in ./DuelArt/Duel.dat and related *.dat files). In particular, if you've replaced the card frames with differently-proportioned imagery, you'll need to manually merge your altered configuration files into the new ones.
  3. Unzip this package directly into your installation directory, overwriting everything.
  4. Install the artwork update per the directions below.
If you are installing Manalink for the first time, I recommend, in this order:
  1. My Portals to Theros distribution, available here.
  2. Sarlack's HighRes Widescreen & Standard 4:3 Graphic mod, available here.
  3. The BFZv2 patch.
  4. This patch.
  5. The card artwork per drool66's instructions below.
Lastly, if you're using this as a base for my recent Shandalar releases, you should keep in mind that each of those is still tied to a particular Manalink patch. Installing this Manalink patch will render a Shandalar release of version DL3 or earlier inoperable. Version HS1 is the first that will work with this.

OK, when I try to use deckbuilder I get the following fatal error. What boneheaded thing did I screw up this time?

That error's actually been there for forever, but a bug in the previous deckdll.dll kept btnbkg.pic (the last one checked for) from triggering it. It should go away if you copy any image file (of just about any format - png, jpg, bmp, an actual MicroProse .pic file) to that filename. CardArt/blank.png is handy, or here's the one from my installation.

drool66 possibly you missed that Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix" was already in cardart Manalink folder,it is in mine at least.It was the only card-artwork I was asked to overwrite or not.However yours was less, 20,6 kb and previous one is 22,2 kb and as I checked much clearer.
I attach the Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix" cardatwork in case you or any other needs it.

Geier Reach Sanitarium cardimage seems to be missing from the archive, also there is a cardimage file named _thersnatch.jpg but Æthersnatch is not coded yet.
Emrakul's Evangel also has a cardimage but is not coded too.

Attached are 7 test decks and OGW, SOI and EMN Intro Pack decks with a few replacement for uncoded cards, I tried to make EDH 2015 ones but they are too difficult to manage for me.

Edit: Was too hasty in deck creating, EMN Intro Pack Unlikely Alliances.dck can't be played because too many uncoded cards using Escalate and redid some others EMN deck, archive is updated

Emrakul's Evangel is in Shandalar HS1. The artwork update intentionally has everything that's in either this or that. There'll be others, about a dozen cards from EMN alone.

Geier Reach Sanitarium is my fault - I'd accidentally marked it as being in Shandalar HS1 while I was going through the EMN cards for Manalink.

Korath: Great update - thank you for including the EMN cards! I'm having fun looking through the new config.txt options as well.

drool66 possibly you missed that Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix" was already in cardart Manalink folder,it is in mine at least.It was the only card-artwork I was asked to overwrite or not.However yours was less, 20,6 kb and previous one is 22,2 kb and as I checked much clearer.
Thank you for the feedback. Looks like I got a case of the underscores - I compared my archive with the previous folders, but that was before I remembered to add Pang Tong's underscores in place of the quotation marks. As for the quality, you're absolutely right. I'm experimenting to see what I can do to improve the artwork I've done so far, and for better results in the future. (I've also reached out to Sonic; we'll see what he has to say.)

Geier Reach Sanitarium cardimage seems to be missing from the archive
I think Geier Reach Sanitarium was one of the EMN cards added as an afterthought. Good news is that I've processed all of the EMN art already (only low quality until next weekend August 20, though). Here is the link for Geier Reach Sanitarium:!ycsjBabD!ZcKAwmhnBnNb ... c90p-kal6s

(Up to date files will always be available in my MEGA folder in my signature)

[T]here is a cardimage file named _thersnatch.jpg but Æthersnatch is not coded yet.
Emrakul's Evangel also has a cardimage but is not coded too.
There are quite a few pieces of art in this update that are not coded in Manalink (eg. Worldgorger Dragon, Muraganda Petroglyphs...). Many are for Shandalar to replace the interim package as noted above, and some are from Sonic's Commander 2015 et al. package that I just added to my archive, as requested. It looks like not all of those cards were coded into Manalink though.

drool66, who has done an excellent job
special thanks to drool66 for stepping up and taking care for the cardartwork
Props to Korath, Newest artwork guy Drool66, and Gargaroz for this update!
Thanks for the love! :D

Hey all,

Not sure if anyone noticed this.

I was trying to get the larger file via mediafire. No dice.

New artwork links from drool66 edited into the first post, with high-quality Eldritch Moon imagery and additional alternate artwork. If you've already downloaded the previous archives, you can get just the new files at

There'll be a v2 release of EMN in relatively short order, once I stop finding things that are glaringly broken and start finding enough contiguous free time to repackage everything.

Just a request, but when you do a release, could you tell us if changes were made to anything in DuelArt folder or to config.txt? They contain so many settings involving customization that resetting them after every update is a pain.
