Alright - I'm going to make a few requests. First, please use lower case for everything. That's file and folder names (especially file extensions; "PNG" NEEDS to be "png"), choices in choice menus, everything. Failing to do so causes errors - please comply.

Also, please rename it from "sw" to "swtcg". "sw" is already taken by Star Wars CCG, which has existed longer, and just hasn't been released yet.

Thank you - I'll have a closer look later when I actually install the template. Those are just surface mistakes I look for when someone new makes a template.

I will say, I'm glad someone has stepped up and done this. Its been on my docket for awhile, but I really didn't want to do it. So, thanks for your contribution.

but couldn't start the engine:

"Package not found: 'SW.mse-game"

might have something to do with the caps?

Also fonts can be shared, if the are free, there are a bunch of free star wars ones, you just have to look.

Alright, I've made several modifications to this, and put up a new download.

Changes Made:
- All instances of "SW" are now "swtcg".
- Added an insert symbol menu. We do this to make the template easier for others to use.
- Changed bmps to pngs. Cut size by over half.
- No, really, I meant all image names and extensions should be lowercase. This gives the Linux version fits.
- Changed all field names and choices to lowercase. This will cause a loss of data in already made sets - better to do it now rather than later, though.
- Fixed some misspellings. Again, will cause loss of data in sets, but better to fix it sooner.
- Added descriptions to all fields. Again, we do things like this so the template is easier for others to use.
- Scripted card number. Who really wants to type their own card numbers? [/rhetorical question]
- Added booster generator based on actual pack contents from real sets.
- Added things like installer groups, versions, and position hints.
- Took out big card back. We don't encourage proxying here.
- Fixed some generally messy scripting.

I know it can seem like I don't appreciate what you did, and that I'm just taking over, but here's the thing. Even if you vanish from this forum and never come back, this template will be around for a long time. If there are silly mistakes like bad spelling or capitalization in it, those will just keep coming back to bite whoever is updating this template in the future to keep it working. And rather than fix those problems later, its better to fix them now when the damage is minimal.

I think the rules text box is in italics, which makes me think that it has been replaced by the flavor text box. I couldn't find how to make both text boxes appear. Can anyone help with this?

hey there people
after scouring your website, i have a few questions and comments.
#1, after downloading and playing around with the mtg editor, i'm quite impressed.
#2, the conversation and title of thread above leads me to believe that there was an intent at some point to create a template for the decipher (not the wizards of the coast tcg) star wars ccg. if i am incorrect here, my mistake.
#3 it seems that either this was abandoned and the simpler sw to template (fewer images by far)was done instead or it was created partially, but never finished.
#4 whatever the case, i'd like to work on this. this being the old decipher ccg. i have adobe photo shop and all the cards needed to scan and a high res scanner. however i am new to the template creating business and only learning adobe photoshop. i've read the tutorial, though it seems that article is only the first of many yet to come. i would be happy to scan as many images as needed. would anyone be interested in helping me with this project?
thanks

Does anyone know if a template has been made for the Star Wars Miniatures ('heroclix') game?
thanks!

That link (http://mtg.pifro.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1014) is giving me a 404.

Where can I find this Star Wars template?

ah, thanks. I apologise for my impatience. I've been scouring the tubes for card editors, and some of the others I found (no names mentioned) are strange backwaters of broken links and odd downloads. You guys seem pretty organised though.

We normally are, if Pifro isn't fall-down drunk.

Righto, got it. Alas, I was looking for templates for the old Decipher Star Wars CCG, not this one. Don't suppose such templates have been created yet?
