Re: A Chance Meeting

I disagree with the premise: that the phrase "(even a Hobbit)" does not override the homesite play-restriction card text on every one of the Hobbits. I believe that the existing wording allows a Hobbit to be played. We agree that this is the intention. Is there a rule concerning card text overridin...

Re: Printer Studio

Any graininess, pixelation, or color variation comes from the source images, not the printing process. I'm also quite sceptical at this statement : the 2nd picture shows a very grainy golden border, which shouldn't happen with so much strength if it was true, am I right ? (unless you did it intenti...

Re: Printer Studio

So, I went ahead and ordered some proxies printed using the italicized guidelines in the first post (start with 750x1050, pad to 822x1122) and nico21000's gold-bordered concepts as inspiration. They turned out quite well, IMO: https://i.imgur.com/1Bszh8L.jpg (examples of different card frames, as we...

Re: Merchandising / Stuff about MECCG - List with photos

The LotR TCG did Tengwar promos, and while they weren't the most readable, I don't think anyone minded:

Or was there a different issue you were pointing out?

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

On a completely different note, one thing that's always bugged me about the design is the slight overlap of the artwork with the frame in the upper left-hand corner.[snap] You're right. Even real cards have this defect. Setting the illustration on a lower layer would fix it, but would bring the opp...

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

It's better than the first one (less grey), but I feel purple is the primary color in minion resources, not blue, and that's not really coming through even in the updated one.

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

To be fair, the card color does depend on both the set and the scan: http://68.104.92.152:1042/img/cards/MELE/mele_allthoughtbentuponit.jpg http://68.104.92.152:1042/img/cards/MELE/mele_amaladywithouthealing.jpg http://68.104.92.152:1042/img/cards/MEAS/meas_blackhorse.jpg http://68.104.92.152:1042/i...

Re: [WTB] in EU n.10 Lidless Eye (MELE) Starter decks

I know I'm not really contributing anything to this thread, but I like how Google Translate's interpretation of "booster pack" is "envelope of expansion."

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

I've been working on templates for about 2 years now. I just recently figured out how to update Magic Set Editor and have compiled a custom fork for MECCG with full resolution export. So I decided to give up on the scans and completely redraw all the card templates in order to get the best print re...

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

Those all look great. So are both you and nico21000 remastering the card templates right now? Is it that you're doing dream cards and he's working on remasters of the original printed ones, and, if so, are you collaborating in any way? It's pretty remarkable that two separate people spontaneously ha...

Re: Printer Studio

That's quite nice, and I especially like that the back of the cards still feels "correct," since it looks like the MELE starter decks and boosters.

Re: Printer Studio

I know I'm quite a bit late to this thread, but why not use gold borders or something similar on proxy cards? Magic uses that to indicate non-legal cards - silver for "Un-" sets, and gold for world championship reprint decks. Obviously grey borders are already in use for the challenge decks and the ...

This looks like a great thread, but all of the image links on the first page are broken. Can someone look into that?

Re: New to the game and have some questions.

When a character is killed in combat, you can distribute their items to other characters in the party (one per character). Does this hold true if the character leaves the field for any other reason, like corruption or being returned to the hand?
