New Base Install & Bugfix May 2020

Postby drool66 » 17 Mar 2020, 20:30

Hi, everyone,,

Aswan Jaguar and I are happy to release our work of the last couple of months, including a few dozen bugfixes and hundreds of new cards.
Manalink now includes every card from Aether Revolt and 131 cards from Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation. Enjoy!

Many thanks to Aswan and our dedicated bug hunters!

Known limitations:
Baral, Chief of Compliance won't trigger on spell countered - this is a limitation of the game until events are extensively rewritten (same with the card Guile)
Crackdown Construct will trigger whenever you activate a card that does not have a mana ability. This works correctly in about 99% of cases, but it will not trigger, say, when you add a counter to Gemstone Array or something like that. It will also not trigger if the ability is granted by another card, like with Quicksmith Rebel.

Two options for install:

For bug reports, please refer to version 5-2020 10bda4ca0

Dev files (not required to run):
mega.nz/#F!fM82QCqK!7vHS8tfNdSaRx__PMsuL4g
Note: The CardArtManalink folder needs to be in your main program.
So if you have named it magic it should be magic/CardArtManalink.

Thanks, for releasing the new update drooll66! :D

I don't know your experience with MEGA files but so far I am pretty disappointed with the very slow compression pace they have to make it into a zip, especially with large files like CardArtManalink. I tried twice for the full CardArtManalink file, last night after 3 1/2 hours it got stuck to 57% and I had to close it, today after 5 hours which took it to complete the compression, it crashed my web browser when it was supposed to make the transfer !!!. :shock: :evil:

I really hope things are better for others.

I will probably go and fetch only the art till last patch.

To inexperienced users if you don't like the very small size of cards and hand you can change it in config.txt which is in main program folder.
SmallCardSize: 0 is what the original game used.

PS. If you try to play before you install CardArtManalink file the game will crash because there is no CardArtManalink file in main program folder. Of course you can a make a new one with that name till you install the other.

Woah, ok
Maybe try right-clicking the folder and downloading from the context menu? I tried that & it downloaded about 1000 images in a minute.

It says watermarks.csv is corrupt by the way. I think that happened last time and I could play anyway. Just thought I'd let you know.

Thanks so much for the update, however i'm also experiencing problems with mega... the download seems to slow down for me whenever i reach the 30% mark, currently downloading at 400 byte/sec and its not my connection. maybe try github? its designed for programs that are being updated...

drool66 the program file install (mediafire one) has all decks and all contents from subfiles and all others in main program file and not in their subfolders so it will cause issues so people don't install this! FIXED

However the download for program took 4 minutes.

The other file has only art for March update new cards and improvements and not all card art as the mega one has.

So I managed to download everything from mega, JDownloader really helped there, downloading 20 files at the same time. Just as a tip for the others. Before that mega reached 100% after a few hours and crashed afterwards, somewhat frustrating haha.

Testing now, Duels options when starting "Magic.exe" seems to be working just fine. Clicking "World" in main menu shows the "Magic Limited" and "Magic Custom" options but clicking either does not yield any result. Same goes for starting "Shandalar.exe", nothing happens.

Those are remnants of a time when we couldn't have all cards together because of a card limit. They are obsolete now.

Shandalar doesn't work with this patch. You can always get original one with no cards added from MTG Microprose Iso in shandalar forum.
