Alright, opening this up for discussion now. If you're unfamiliar with the frames or mechanics involved, see here: http://wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/157b

Current Progress:
The regular frames and template are complete. Be sure to thank Shiv for doing the hard part!

Most templates that are requested are never made. Why? There are a couple of reasons. First, if you're doing a custom game out of your own imagination, most templaters aren't going to be interested in making it for you. In my personal experience, custom game designers that happen in here are doing it on a whim, and don't really want to put forth the effort required for this sort of thing. Often, they lose interest, and any work the templater has done is then wasted. Second, many people who request a template for an existing game are again not interested in doing the work. Here's some information about what is required to make a template for game that already exists.

Are there any reliable, reasonably simple WYSIWYG templating tools out there? I have a game I'm working on that I want to be able to make cards for in MSE, but it's early on, so I don't need a complicated, advanced template. I can make the template myself the old-fashioned way, but it'd be nice to have a more visual editor.

I can't seem to change the border color in any of the M15 templates.

So I've got two related but independent problems right now:

1. Sadly there doesn't seem to be a M15 modification to the Conspiracy card frame, which is sad 'cause I really like how the M15 frames are organized.

2. The default background for the Conspiracy frame is a solid black, which if I print out will obliterate my printer's toner.

The M15 issue is fairly minor, but I really need as solution for the background outside of just manually filling it with white. Anyone know how how to edit this and/or have a decent default image to use?

Hello guys, my name is Pedro and I'm trying to create a TCG based on Cardfight Vanguard rules.

Hello, I'm sorry if I posted this thread in the wrong section.
Can someone help me about innistrad templates? I mean the transform ones (like delver, huntmaster etc.). I've already found a thread about this in the forum, but the download link isn't working, it pops up an error and I can't download anything at all.

I was messing around with the new Origins Sparkers template, and I found a minor problem. The multicolor and artifact masks on the planeswalker sides of the cards are made with the old border in mind. Here's a picture that illustrates the problem:


As you can see, there's a little bump at the bottom of the image that is still colored gold. It's just an issue with the masks, but I don't really know how to alter the masks appropriately.

I was wondering how I would have a Choice type field that has a list of options (i.e: Officer, Science, Programming, Engineer, etc.) but have the ability to type in unique entries if the situation demands that aren't on the list of options (i.e.: Underwater Basket weaving)

Hi guys,

the name pretty much says it all - is there a planeshifted version of the M15 templates out there somewhere? I'm afraid not, yet I decided to at least give it a try asking..
