Manalink update 03 November 2011 : New Limited

Postby Gargaroz » 03 Nov 2011, 15:46

Ok, here's a very special update. No great things about Costructed, besides the new card Random Singleton : put it in your deck and you'll get a new, random mono-colored singleton deck to play wit.
The cool news is that this time I've added to the standard update two new folders : one is an update to the Golden Years mod, with many CSV fixes, the other contains the new version of Limited Edition, that includes the entire M12 and Scars of Mirrodin sets, plus all the already available cards in Costructed from Mirrodin Besieged, New Phyrexia and Innistrad, and some extra goodies that I couldn't include in Costructed.
This time, this is released as a mod, so you cold freely copy the files in your Magic folder, click on the .bat file and play. If you want the correct artwork, just create a folder named CardArtNL and wait for the usual artwork update did by Sonic ;)
In the next releases, I'll complete Mirrodin Besiegied, New Phyrexia and Innistrad, so we could have a nice edition for Standard and Limited. And there will be enough space for the two expansions of Innistrad and M13.
For now, just enjoy !

Edit : Oh, damn selfishness ! I forgot to mention the great help of Masaaki, Sonic and Orion79 for New Limited ! Thanx a lot guys ;)

Great update with singleton, it make random testing better :)

Also, due to the new GY format, does that mean that officially GY, Constructed and Limited can be played from the same Magic folder?

Hum when trying to launch NewLimited.bat from Magic\NewLimited_V1 I get the error "can't find DeckLim.dll, DrawCardLim.dll, CardArtLim.dll..." so do you have to override the file in NewLimited in the main folder root (and does that mean you still have to make separate Magic folder for each version)?

Just copy the files into your \magic folder. I think nothing will be overridden.

Hum the problem is the magic.exe in the root of the magic folder launch the Constructed version, and when launched if I switch inside to the Limited version I get the old Limited from Inny V4.

If I copy the files from the magic/newlimitedV1 folder and override with the file in the root folder magic and then launch NewLimited.bat I can use the NewLimited version (but no longer be able to use Inny V4 Limited version)

If I try to run NewLimited.bat from the folder magic/newlimitedV1 it will ask for all the dll files that are in the root magic folder

I think it's the same for GY4.5, so that is why I wondered if you had to make new magic folder separatly as before to get every version.

Edit: And also the dreaded Thumbs.db file make a return in the CardArtNL archive, please turn on hidden file so you can delete it before packing as it's an useless file generated for thumbnail by windows (and use some space).

I admit the mod version is a bit confusing, but we will probably replace it soon with a regular update of the Limited version. In my opinion there's no point in keeping the old Limited as it is by now totally outdated and has little to offer.

Yes, I read the futures plan to merge to the new limited and to use a manual switcher, that is why I though it would be possible to switch immediately.

You are right about inny v4 limited, it's kinda hard to make valid deck from set so I didn't play much in this gametype, but now I really enjoy NewLimited (GY still give me trouble as I didn't play a lot of those set when they were released, guess it was due to the rise of the computer gaming and LAN party at those time).

Guys, just copy the files from the NewLimited in your magic folder and click on the bat file. Really, I can't imagine a simpler way to do things. Nothing will be overwritten, the files have different names.

Gargaroz, I have done as you say, but I only get the old limited version. No Scars of Mirrodin here, or anything else, except for the old Zendikar limited.

That's strange, Megres, it works for me.
If you double click on the NewLimited.bat, MagicLimited will be automatically loaded with the new cards.
Anyone has the same problem ?

Wouldn't it be easier to just release the mod file directly in the root folder (though with many mod already it's beginning to be a bit overcrowded ;) )?
Unless I got a non updated pack file, there were 2 separates folders for the new mods.

I have no problem I guess people got confused by the 2 separate folders for the new mods.
I love the random Singleton card it helps in play-testing a lot as mentioned by Stassy,thanks a lot. :D
