Manalink update 10 March 2012 : Dark Ascension

Postby Gargaroz » 10 Mar 2012, 16:13

Ok guys, here's the first Manalink patch after the great achievement of Manalink 3.0.
The biggest feature of this patch is the entire Dark Ascension set coded (minus 3 card which are uncodeable). Plus, there's the usual long string of bug fixed.
All this work wouldn't be possible without the help of a bunch of guys that I've to proudly mention :
* All the bug hunters, great work guys !
* Foolosopher, which updated the Draft card.
* Last but not least, Sonic which helped me with the CSV and compiled the card artworks.
Last thing before the link, please read the release notes before reporting bugs.

CardArtShandalar20120301.zip – http://www.mediafire.com/?faas9yfh3uwwc7f

Shandalar Card Art Issue
The problem with Shandalar not showing artwork with certain cards has been resolved. The Shandalar ‘Cards1.dat’ file doesn’t name the cards using some of the non-English characters used in the official card names – the names of the affected images have now been renamed.
There are now four copies of the Assembly Worker image in the CardArtShandalar folder. Originally the game would select randomly from one of the four Mishra’s Factory images for this card. Subsequently, it has been necessary to make four copies of the now used Assembly Worker token image. The Assembly Worker image files have also had to be renamed without the hyphen.
Please delete your current CardArtShandalar folder before installing the new one.
Copying the new files into the current folder will not overwrite the incorrectly named files.

Total number of files in CardArtShandalar folder: 1259

Thanks guys for the great job you did.
I have a request for the cardartmanalink since now cards are processed with their names and to help people with slow dial up connections upload the new card artwork,too.This way newcomers can download the full package and others only the new cardartwork which just needs to be copy/pasted to your existing cardartmanalink folder.

Is it possible to have back the challenges that were gone due to 2k card limit?
Is there a limit as to how many challenges can be at the same time to Manalink?

This was the intention.
Since Gargaroz and I worked concurrently on this release, it was possible to include the code patch and a set of full cardart folders in the initial release post. So people won't have to hunt round the thread for the card art for this patch.

These folders will now act as the base cardart folders for Manalink 3.0 for at least the next few releases. Or until we get complaints its too much of a chore for people to look for and download a load of separate smaller cardart archives to keep the folders up to date.
:wink:

Great update!
However, all my decks are messed up, with cards having been exchanged for others. Not knowing much how the card database works, I'm guessing the deckfiles refer just to the cards positions in the database and that these are altered by the update? Is there any way to fix this? It's a pain having to rebuild all my decks.

You can use CirothUngol's Manalink PlayDeck Analyser which should work for any version and update your deck from any csv file.

The SCV version is outdated, you need to follow the Manalink 3.0 Installation thread and come back here to use the patches in this thread

I think i found a first bug, not sure if it should belong here , but -

Falkenrath Aristocrat (Gold Vampire from Dark Ascension) should have HASTE, but it dose`t work, you can`t attack with her the moment she comes to play, only use her ability to devour creatures.

Also Angelic Overseer dose`t show that she is indestructible and hexproof when human is in play(not sure now if there are even icons yet for such effects).

Please report any card bug in the Bug Reports section with a screenshot or savegame in duel mode if possible, thanks.

This has a lot of great new cards actually, but that Sanguine Bond and also Endless Entity are some of my favourites. They used to be on my wishlist :)

You need to get the fix for the mok deck builder which is in this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=85&t=6284

Scroll down to the white box which says, "If you can no longer search for textless card after using Mok search engine here is the fix:
download/file.php?id=4965"

And that should do it :)

As usual, thank you so much for the update!! I haven't really been on the forum much lately, but it's very exciting to see how much incredible progress you guys have made. Thank you again!

One quick question, though.

Since I'm such a fan of the challenges, I decided to give the new one a try but it keeps giving me an auto-lose and only lets me have 3 cards in my hand. Any help on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

I attached the deck (it's not very good, I threw it together on the spot) so you can see it, I also followed the banned list for both commander and singleton and used only beta lands. Thanks in advance for any help.
