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.

Hey, me again. :/

I've got a set field that lets a user upload an image. The thing is this field is defaulting to an image size of something like 128x2. Are there some values or attributes that would let me change this?

Is there a way to have an image element of type choice, but also give the user the option to upload their own image? My idea for a workaround currently is to have two dummy boxes and the image itself that actually displays the picture, but I was wondering if this already exists in some form.

Hey all, I'm trying to make a template that will include a couple slightly different designs based on what "type" a card is. For example, the card will only have a watermark if the card is of a particular type.

I tried to set the "visible" element in the style to "no", but that only disables the user's ability to see the box. It doesn't disable the user's ability to click on the box, whether accidentally or if they know where the box is.

The next thing I'm trying is to also conditionally set the "enabled" attribute in the watermark's card field to false.

Two questions:

1 - Does MSE support .svg vector symbols? Like in text boxes and whatnot?

2 - If MSE does support .svg vector symbols, will they print vectored? Or will they be pixelated as if they were .pngs?

When one of the options from a multiple choice image is selected, the image will show up properly. If multiple are selected, neither image will show.

Does anyone know if someone has started development on these? I wouldn't mind giving it a try, but I wanna know if anyone has already begun this project so that any work I do is not in vain.

Oh, crap, forgot my sig at home. brb

I was making quite a simple thing, but the style sheet refuses to load in MSE.

Does anyone have a text-boxless Planeswalker template they could link for me to download,
or maybe know where I could get it? I'm sure it's already a thing;
this is basically what I'm looking for:
