Ok folks i have an alpha version of the software available for testing it will insert an image and you can type in your text but so far it will only save the card as an image it wont load cards.

you can also name your cards and enter a type but no mana costs yet.

hope for some positive feedback, also please don re-distribute this software yet as its only in alpha (i know it says beta but I named the file wrong)

and sorry just one colour for the moment.

thanks guys and gals

Does this software use actual mtg card frames and the official mtg fonts? The HQ Card Generator application seems to fill this need already. Does your application offer any new features or improvements over this established standard?

Welcome to Magic!

I would like to invite you to redirect your efforts to assist with the HQCG. Dozens of hours have already been invested into perfecting the generator, and as a result, starting from scratch may not be the most productive venture. The app does lack a GUI, perhaps you would know how to implement one. The primary developer has not provided any updates in a long time. Fresh help would be greatly appreciated.

well ive got the database setup in the GUI currently just going a 10E version at the moment until it works better to work with 350 records instead of 21000+.

at this rate i should have some kind of alpha phase in 2 days.

ok i have been rapidly progressing have a try and please give feed back.

I've had to tweak the CSV file and turn it into a XLS file but thats not to worry, the XLS file is truncated to cards marked 10E.

the card search works but no save current card yet.
