Sorry about this, but how do you add multiple watermarks.
The only reason I'm asking this is I didn't understand the orginal. Thanks for putting up with my nonsense.

Maybe I didn't understand wath you asked, but I think that adding one or multiple Watermarks is pretty much the same, you only have to add the direction in the "watermarks-names", and in the "watermarks" arhives, you can easily do that with Wordpad.
If I knew how to add images, I could explain it more practically (or something like that, I don't know the verb either)
But you do something like this, in the "watermarks-names" you have to put
choice:
name: [1:the name of the menu in wich will appear the watermarks.]
choice:[2:name of the watermark 1]
choice: [name of the watermark 2]
choice: [name of the watermark 3]
choice: [etc... etc...]

In the Watermarks you only add something like this (copying and pasting the already existents directions in the file works fine):
[the same that you writted on 1] [the same thing writted in 2]:
script: set_combine(combine:"shadow", input:"/magic-watermarks.mse-include/[name of the archive that you want to be colled like you writted in 2].png")

I hope this helps a little at least...

Sounds like its time for another installment of Pichoro's DIY on MSE2! *clapping and cheering*

Alright folks, I've got one pre-prepared watermark here, made using photoshop. This particular watermark is a tap symbol with the filename watermark_t.png, and can be found in the custom file library, stored conveniently for your browsing pleasure.

First, we take our watermark and copy it into the folder C:\~\Magic Set Editor 2\data\magic-watermarks.mse-include. If you're doing multiple watermarks, just copy them all into the folder now. Then, while in that same folder, we open the file watermark-names using Notepad. An important aside here folks; NEVER open an MSE file using anything other than Notepad. I've heard some people mention using Wordpad before, but don't do it. Anything over than Notepad corrupts the file due to particulars of how the file is saved. Notepad never does this and, as far as i knokw, is standard on all windows computers; so just use Notepad.

Anyway, we've got watermark-names open in Notepad. This file is actually what makes the list of watermarks we see when we're in the editor and access the watermarks menu. We can see that its divided into three groups currently: mana symbol, guild symbol, and xander hybrid mana. We can either add a watermark to one of these groups, as we'll be doing with the tap symbol, or we can make another group and add watermarks to it, as one might do with, say, a collection of Lovecraft watermarks.

To add a tap symbol, you want to change the end of the mana symbol group from

choice:
	name: mana symbol
	choice: white
	choice: blue
	choice: black
	choice: red
	choice: green
	choice: snow

to

choice:
	name: mana symbol
	choice: white
	choice: blue
	choice: black
	choice: red
	choice: green
	choice: snow
	choice: tap

So all we did was add a line for the tap symbol watermark's name. We must make sure that we use a tab at the beginning of that line, not an equivalent number of spaces. Always use tabs. To add a group of lovecraft watermarks, we might do something like this instead; we would change the end of the list from:

choice: 
	name: xander hybrid mana
	choice: B/R
	choice: U/B
	choice: B/G
	choice: R/G
	choice: G/U
	choice: U/R
	choice: W/B
	choice: G/W
	choice: R/W
	choice: W/U

to

choice: 
	name: xander hybrid mana
	choice: B/R
	choice: U/B
	choice: B/G
	choice: R/G
	choice: G/U
	choice: U/R
	choice: W/B
	choice: G/W
	choice: R/W
	choice: W/U
choice:
	name: Lovecraft symbols
	choice: Hastur
	choice: Chthulu
	choice: F Dragon
	choice: Shub-Niggurath
	choice: Yog-sothoth
	choice: Nyarlathotep

Notice that there is an empty line at the end very end of the file; this is important, always preserve that empty line. Now, the file is done. Save, and close. Now in the same folder, open the file watermarks using Notepad. This is the file that tells the program what image (and in most cases, script) to use when a certain choice is made from the watermarks menu.

For adding the tap symbol, we would just put a new line anywhere that reads:

mana symbol tap: /magic-watermarks.mse-include/watermark_t.png

For maximum effect using a watermark that resembles the guild watermarks more than it does the mana symbols, you would want to mimic the layout of, say the xander hybrid mana watermarks. You must use the same layout already presented in the file, and instead use the full name of your watermark in place of the xander watermarks. You full name might be something like "Lovecraft Cthulhu"; notice that you don't just include the name of the watermark, but also its group at the beginning. Then inside the set_combine script, you would change the filename from the xander watermark to your watermark. For multiple watermarks, wash, rinse, and repeat.

Speaking of chtulhu, did the chtulhu watermarks work in the end?
I uploaded them in a Zip file.

That was our handsome show host,Pichoro, telling everyone how to add watermarks (cheering)
And now to answer Bufon's ?, They turned out wonderfuly without a snag. (Clapping, Some lady yells "I Love You")
Calm down folks, and any other word form our host or Bufon?

I don't know if the empty line used to be required, but I found out it was after I redid the keywords, and the keyword on bottom wouldn't ever have reminder text. Then I realized, the program doesn't read the bottom line of any of these files, so it has to be empty.

The files you're looking for are in

C:\Program Files\Magic Set Editor 2\data\magic-watermarks.mse-include

The "Program Files" part may vary, depending on your operating system language.

They are named
watermark-names and watermarks

McLight is exactly right; I put in the "~" because you can install it do different places.

People have misunderstood what it means in the past as well.

First of all, I apolgize in advance if this is necroing, but this is a question in regards to this particular topic, and I figured that this would be the proper place to post it instead of creating a new thread.

The question is this. Can I use the principles that Pichoro describes in an earlier post, and apply them to expansion symbols that I've already created using MSE. I ask because one of those symbols acts as a brand insignia which I want to watermark on several cards throughout the block. I simply wish to know if I can dump the symbol as a watermark, or if I have to do something to it first.

I'm rather unclear about what you're asking, jrzman. Are the symbols in image form, or set symbol form? If they're images, you should be able to use my process on them.

If they're set symbols, probably not. Your best bet to get a faithful recreation of the symbol as an image in that case would probably be to use the rarity symbol template, export a large common or inverted common version of your symbol, and convert that into a watermark.

I have a master image of the set symbol, but alas, not in watermark form. I guess what I'm asking is how to convert that image into a watermark. I should be fine from there.

This is my first time posting and well Im relatively new to MSE. Anyway whenever I try to save the updated watermarks_names file it says "Cannot create the C:/Program Files?Magic Set Editor 2/data/(rest of the watermarks_names stuff) Make Sure that the path and file name are correct. I use Windows Vista Home Premium (would this change anything). So please say there is a way to fix this or I KILL A KITTEN!!! Thx....

i'm running Vista Home Premium too, and this same thing happened to me. my solution was to re-install MSE into the "my documents" folder. that's probably not the only solution, but it should probably be re-installed somewhere OTHER THAN "program files".

You should probably have admin access, if you are using vista. That might fix it.

There is no ? mark, sorry didn't see that. Anyway I reinstalled it to a folder on my desktop and now its working. Just wish I had the art tools to make a half decent watermark.

I had some problems with MSE recently, and had to reinstall it. My problem is that I had a custom watermark included for some sets, that I now can't replicate. I've been following all of the steps listed, and can't reproduce an effect I had before I had to reinstall. How do I fix this, as the image doesn't even come up now, for some strange reason.

Do you get any error messages?

If not, even though you say you've been following all the steps, my guesses are as follows:

1.) You've only edited the watermarks names file, not the watermarks file.

2.) You've edited the watermarks file, but are not using the same name as is actually on the watermark's file.

If you can't remedy the problem, you could zip up your watermark folder and post it somewhere; myself or perhaps someone else will edit it for you.

I've done both to the best of my knowledge.

I am now getting an error message:

Warnings while reading file:
magic-watermarks.mse-include/watermarks

On line 66: Expected 'end of input' instead of ')'

I'm not quite sure what this means. What's worse, is there was a procedure that I followed last time, using the vs. templates as a guide, because I got the image on a white background, and it wasn't blended with the back of the textbox, and I can't find that thread. Hence why I'm asking again.

Other than it being a pain to read... [/bad joke], I only see one problem and one potential problem.

1.) Delete the very last ")". You've only got one "(" in that script, but two ")" to match at the end. That's one to many.

2.) Are you on Linux? There's something about capitalization mattering in Linux versions of the program; that's why all files are standardized lower-case. On windows, I don't think that matters, though.

Actually the problem was, that I just noticed, was that it was case sensitive. I have it in the list as Mellis Brand, and in the code as Mellis brand. I've made the change, and it works now.

First off, I'm sorry for necroposting, but my problem deals with things related to the watermarks.

You see, I downloaded MysticHobo's set of religious symbols and I did everything that Pichoro's tips suggested.

First off, here's the watermark-names syntax for the watermarks.

Post the code in code tags, or don't bother. Formatting is too important, and not using code tags ruins it.

Not sure how to help you here. I did not mean to upset you, but maybe some guidance as to what you want would help me post how you want me to. Thanks for your patience.

@trianglespank: Code tags are BBCode tags like the spoiler tag which was used in your previous post. You can read more about BBCode here.

You didn't upset me - I was in a hurry, and I get tired of telling people that too.

Edit: Anyway, I see at least one problem right away now. In the watermarks file, you said "Freyaduun symbol", but in the watermarks-list file, you just said "Freyaduun". You've got to use the exact same terminology (case-sensitive) for both.

Edit 2: But also, some of those images aren't going to work as well as you want them to. Of the five, four of them don't have transparency around them, they have white canvas. MSE will show that white square the image is sitting on.

Edit 1: Has been fixed, now I am seeing the watermarks. Thank you.

Edit 2: Do you know where I can find steps to fix the watermarks so they work similar to the Magic watermarks?

Thanks for you help.

Copy the file to somewhere you can edit. Edit, then put it back to where you found it.

i got it, i went in and set all my file permissions to full control on the files for the user i was on, it was treating it as a lower grade, so i couldnt change it (thank god for windows training classes at school)

Pretty sure it's just a choice box. You have to click around until you can find it.

meep, thank you for your answer(s) i was able to find it when i was looking at another thread, on the text box, there is a colored border, if you click that it will give you the watermark options
