There is not a complete cardart file for the moment probably Sonic sooner or later will release the new cardart file,you have to be patient.
In the meantime you may want to try this folder I made to test cartartmanalink- Snacko's cardartlib.dll which probably will work for you and doesn't miss more than 100 card artwork,I think.
It works with Snacko's cardartlib.dll,probably with Mok's,too.
Copy the cardartfolder at first and see if that works for you if not use cardartlib.dll and overwrite the other.

Doesn't work. I copied the art folder first and art was still missing. I then replaced cardartlib.dll and it was asking for some other dll. I ultimately replaced everything there was in your folder and it couldn't find CARDS.DAT. I downloaded the archive from your first post, but i noticed there are some other archives in that thread. Do I need one of those?

Thanks! It worked, but as you said, it's still missing some arts. Hope Sonic is going to release an update soon :D

This is simply amazing [-o< Everyone involved should be proud =D>

It was not easy to get this to work (in fact, I never got it to work with Windows XP, even after installing GDI+, but it does seem to work in Windows 7, after messing around with the bmp/pic extensions and using the compatibility thing). Still haven't tried putting Snacko's dll working with it, but it looks good so far =P~

So far, only found a bug in the deckbuilder. While trying to sub-select some creature type, not only are the types unsorted (annoying, but ok), but it actually crashes the deckbuilder if I try to apply some filter. (dunno if it's just me)

Once again, thanks guys. You all rock =D> =D> =D>

Don't know if it's me only, but it's the opposite for me in the DeckBuilder, no more explorer crash when fiddling around with it and windows with the mouse :D

Well... it is true that I no longer see those random explorer crashes :) what I'm describing is slightly different, though (not random crashing... i can consistently crash it by applying _any_ creature type filter).

Could anyone just confirm to see if it's just me? (maybe I applied the patch incorrectly, or something)

Nevertheless, it looks awesome :) A great day for gaming :mrgreen:

I fixed the old explorer crash bug. That was similar bug to the infamous "only 1 card in deckbuilder" from pre-2.0, the authors used system reserved message numbers for their own window messages and it caused conflicts with explorer.exe. Main Magic.exe does the same, but somehow it's not crashing anything (lucky, as fixing it there would take a lot of time).

About the new crash bugs in deck builder, sorry I haven't tested it much after splitting the dbinfo from cards.dat, prolly some error there. I'll try to test a bit before next beta.
Creature type list breaking is nothing major, as it's going to be switched to the new types, to allow more than 2 subtypes for a card.

I agree... just pointed it out in case you were unaware of it.

Just tested playing a bit with it and no problems or crashes so far during gameplay (and, surprisingly, no card bugs either). It's beautiful [-o<

You and all the developers and maintainers involved deserve all the praise you can get :) Thanks!

It wont work for me, but I am probably doing something wrong :P I just copied the contents over my MTG folder (I backed it up too just in case). I can run magic.exe and it runs as usual. The deck editor seems to work althoug half the cards are missing artwork now. But when I click duel, it crashes with a Magic:The Gathering - Manalink v2.00 alpha has stopped working, and it tries to find a solution (Win 7, 64bit).

I also tried running Limited but that crashes with a different error saying "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005). Click OK to close the application.

I gotta sleep now but I'll try some stuff like reinstalling.

Got it working with Snacko fix (MagicCDll-CardArtLib-20120102.zip and vcredist_x86.exe) comboed with Aswan jaguar card update.

Ah, a question about the playdeck : are the card ids will be the finals (meaning next update will not change them)?
