Manalink update Jan 30: Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter

PostPosted: 30 Jan 2011, 14:13
by Gargaroz
So, here's again for you a very BIG update, with many cards from the new expansion Mirrodin Besieged and lots more, like some Changelings and Treefolks (including Doran) from Lorwyn, Ninjas from Kamigawa, nice combos for EDH and so on.
But all this comes with a price, and this time, like the title says (also a good 'ol Iron Maiden song), is a "slaughter". In fact, before installing this update I strongly recommend you to await if you want to beat the "Programmer's Deligh" Challenge : check the stuff I've removed and you'll understant why.
However, you'll get 102 new cards for the Costructed version and 27 for the Limited version, for a total of 129 never before available cards. And you'll get most of the artworks too ! I hope this will ease the pain.

As usual, please post bugs about the new cards in this topic, so I can track them more easily.

Your friendly neighborhood,

---- BUGS FIXED ----

From v1 :
* Fixed abilities for Hand of the Praetors
* Fixed code for Mimic Vat
* Fixed code for Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
* Fixed card name and effect for Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
* Fixed "legend rule" for Rafiq of the Many and Doran, the Siege Tower.
* Fixed interactions between Doran, the Siege Tower, Treefolk Harbinger and Green Sun's Zenith.
* Fixed code for Karn, Silver Golem
* Fixed CC for Painter's Servant
* Fixed interaction between Ancestral Vision and the Rules Engine : the Vision doesn't count as "creature" anymore for the storm count
* Fixed a bug that prevented the Vengevine "return from the grave" for the AI.
* Fixed code for Kjeldoran Outpost (thanx Serra)
* Fixed code for Emeria, the Sky Ruin (thanx Serra)

Original version :
* Fixed shuffling bug for Myr Incubator (thanx Serra)
* Fixed crashing bug for Jester's Cap (thanx Serra)
* Fixed CIPT and crashing bug for for Emeria, the Sky Ruin (thanx Serra)
* Fixed loyalty counters for Elspeth Tirel
* Fixed the interaction between Exploration and Oracle of Mul Daya : now their effect is cumulative, along with the new Explore.
* Fixed the interaction between +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 counters, one gets removed if ther other goes on the same creature. It don't works on all cards.
* Fixed exalted powerup of Battlegrace Angel : now the exalted creature retains lifelink even if the angel leaves play before EOT.
* Fixed (hopefully) shuffle-related crashes for Serra Avatar and Dragonstorm.
* Fixed code for Axelrod Gunnarson : now he has an activated ability that you can use if the correct event triggers. If multiple creature damaged by Axelrod are put in the graveyard, you can use this ability multiple times.
* Fixed code for many cards that care about subtypes, including some old cards that I've recoded, so they can interact with Changelings. Mainly green and white cards of the Costructed version, but not only.
* Fixed code for Gemhide Sliver, Magma Sliver, Telekinetik Sliver, Psionic Sliver and Necrotic Sliver : now they interacts nicely with Changelings and finally the AI can use their activated abilities.
* Fixed code for cards with Wither and / or Infect : now they didn't inflict the damage plus the -1/-1 counters and cards with Infect and Trample will give the appropriate amount of Poison to defending player.
* Fixed Contagion : now it will work even if it's casted normally.
* Fixed Genesis Wave : now it reveals X cards, not X-1 !
* Added a reminder legacy to Windbrisk Heights that show the card under it.
* Fixed the casting cost / ability for Shrieking Grotesque.
* Fixed kicker bug of Gigantiform. However, there's still an engine bug that I could not fix : if for some reason you've still enough mana to pay kicker after you kicked the spell the first time, when the second Gigantiform comes into play you will be asked again if you want to pay kicker.
* Fixed code for Terramorphic Expanse.
* Fixed AI for Inferno Titan ability
* Fixed damaging ability for Magma Phoenix

The new codes are available only in the Costructed version
* Recoded Triskelion, so it interacts perfectly with Doubling Season and so on.
* Recoded all the shocklands, so they've an unique C code.
* Recoded Lord of Atlantis, Eladamri, Lord of Leaves, Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary and Last Stand, so they can interact with subtype-changing cards.
* Recoded Bribery : now the AI will fetch the biggest creature he could find.

* The prize for the "Sliver Nation" challenge is now Sliver Overlord. So, if you already unlocked it, good for you. As you could suspect, Essence Sliver is no more a locked card.
* Changed some cards that AI gets for free in some challenges, as they have a wrong CSV ID.

* Mimic Vat : if two creatures die at the same time (in combat, for example), you get to put in the Vat only the creature you not control, dunno why.
* Chameleon Colossus / Mirror Entity : I tried to fix the various interactions, but not all, so I left the "*" in the name.
* All cards with Proliferate : in case of creatures, you can proliferate only special counters, +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 counters. This will save a lot of nasty bugs.
* Devastating Summons : it summons a pair of Fire Elementals with the p/t modified, so I could save a slot ;)
* Painter's Servant : you won't see the effect on library and hand cards, but there it is.
* Lotus Bloom : to make it uncastable from hand, it actually cost 99. I've made some fixes to adjust that, but just in case I left the "*" in the name
* Devoted Caretaker : "Protection from Instants" and "Protection from Sorceries" are already coded in the engine, but for strange reasons they actually only gives a partial "Shroud" to the affected creature against a particualr kind of spell. So, the damage dealt from Sorceries or Instants to all creatures is not prevented. And I doubt this issue can be fixed.
* Shrieking Grotesque / Crypt Champion / Plaxmanta : now they're very similar to the original cards, but there's still some issues, like the impossibility of not paying the "mana of the required color" if you have it.
* In the Eye of Chaos / Invoke Prejudice / Master of the Hunt : in order to be able to code them, I had to make them work in a slightly different way than the original. Check their rules text for further information.

Thanks for this update

Karn, Silver Golem dont work
The error is:


[Updated]> I saw a little problem when I want to test Blightsteel Colossus (pretttyyy bigggg):
When it discarded and reshuffle into library, it's transmuted to Darksteel Colossus :(

[Updated]> Some of my pic files (moxen for ex) doesn't appear too
To resolve this little problem, goto CardArtNew folder, copy, paste and rename the five moxen:
for example Mox Emerald has pic number 0165 and 0165a with the same picture :) )

I play under win7 and have no big bugs, sometimes crashes like all, but it's fine most of the time

I did wrong something?

:shock: Simply amazing, Gargaroz. I'm speechless before all these amazing cards.

Only now I think I must finish Programmer's Delight quickly. My hands are itching for proliferate. Is that an approximation or did you succeed in making the ability to work with every counter?

I might disagree with some replacements, but they remain in the limited version so most won't hurt too much. I'll miss Dakkon Blackblade for EDH but Serra Angel most of all. Baneslayer is better but not strictly better.

Edit: After trying the challenge for a few times and not even noticing what removed card might have been relevant to it I decided not to care about it and just go testing the new cards ;)

@ Shinra : Yep, it's my fault ! I tried various version of Karn code and obviously I left a bugged version in. I'll wait some days to see if something else pops out and then release a bugfix version.

@ Shantak : please read the release notes about Proliferate ;)

It was a video for "Bring your Daughter... To the Slaughter" by Iron Maiden. Too bad, I can see it.

That's some nice coding work! Quite a few useful cards there, and also several that I didn't EVER expect to see, and many are cards I have never seen at all due to the time period I played the game.

I am going to miss some old friends though, like Serra Angel, Rock Hydra, Raging River, ice age pump knights, Island of Wak Wak (land ho challenge!) and so on, but I suppose that is the price to pay for the new stuff :)

Rafiq of the Many
I could play 2 of them without any problems. The card is legendary.

Doran, the Siege Tower
I was able to play 2 of them. Same issue (it is legendary).

Ancestral Vision
After suspending this card counts towards your creature count (so after you draw cards with it you only need to play one creature to trigger Vengevine).

So many nice cards! It has been Christmas already twice this year :) Thanks a lot.
