Post any feature requests you have here. We don't promise to implement everything, but we'll look at every idea.

It would be good to be able to see near the 'pass priority' button what I'm passing on. e.g. The name of a phase/step or just responding to spells/effects stack.

The ability to undo actions (by agreement) would be great, although probably difficult to implement. Most games I've played have been significantly affected by some trivial error where one player has missed a crucial action by accidentally passing or skipping an action. It's a bit depressing when this happens.

When hosting, the ability to see the external IP in the logs would be useful. Not sure if this is available in whatever UPnP library you're using.

Thanks!

Some more... :)

Parsing of different deck formats. e.g. The format from mtgdecks.net.

Flashing the screen or beeping when you get priority. (At the moment it only beeps at the start of your turn.)

A keyboard shortcut for passing priority.

A way to pass priority until the end of the turn, assuming nothing happens (no attacks, plays or activated abilities).

Automatically cropping uncropped card images. (Instructions should also mention that images need to be cropped.)

The biggest one is displaying the phase in the text box for "you have priority". I have rushed through the phases too many times then realized I missed the main phase.

The other big thing is to do a whole match and allow sideboarding.

We like this idea and plan to implement it, though we're ironing out the details. It might be in the next release, but no promises.

We sympathize, but, as you pointed out, this is a simple request with a lot of hidden repercussions. We'll be thinking about it, but this would be a long-term feature rather than something in an upcoming release.

richd wrote:Parsing of different deck formats. e.g. The format from mtgdecks.net.
We took a look at the "MWS/.dec" format offered by mtgdecks.net and noticed that it's remarkably similar to the format jMagic currently accepts right now. Both even have lines starting with "SB:". How strange is that? The only change appears to be allowing "//" to start a comment as well as "#", which is an easy enough change, so it's been implemented and will be in the next release.

richd wrote:Automatically cropping uncropped card images. (Instructions should also mention that images need to be cropped.)
It's tricky to detect if an image is already cropped, and Java doesn't do a great job of cropping images while maintaining quality. There are numerous resources for getting cropped images, so we'll defer to those instead of trying to make our own, though the instructions will include using cropped art instead of full card art.

Which text box are you referring to? If you mean the area between the large card in the upper left and the pass-priority/no-responses buttons, see the above related question. In short: sounds good, might be available in the next release.

ashsaver wrote:The other big thing is to do a whole match and allow sideboarding.
Ah, we've been dreaming about doing this for a while now. We would like to focus on making a single game as good as possible, though we've been thinking about how to do this and will continue to think on how to do this.

I think that's more than enough requests for now, you don't have to do them all (or any if you don't want to). This is just more of a "if you want to implement more cards, here's a direction you can take". Thanks in advance.

hi guys,

just played two games with jMagic, really great rule implementation!

A few thoughts on the gameplay:

- real match support with die rolling and sideboarding option would be nice
( -> plus the option for game conceding)
- a small color change for attacking/blocking creatures, maybe a red/yellow outline?
- some sound effects would also be neat, e.g. for phase or turn changing / attacking
- any plans for implementing an ingame chat? :)

Also found this legacy card missing: Tower of the Magistrate

Keep up the good work guys, just a few steps away from being a real MGTO competitor. ^^

regards,

EDIT:
two things about the interface:
- the option for skipping a phase: it would be nice, if there would be some sort of check boxes directly next to the phase name. so you can see directly, if you are skipping any phases and change it on the fly. :)
- ending a turn: would be nice, if there were another button for ending a turn directly, just telling the game "i wont do anything more this turn". of course, if something triggers, the game should stop in the appropriate phase.
