Brilliant - thank you for continuing to update this superb tool.

 

Just to let you know that Chrome thinks the download is malware....

thanks Zorbec!

 

Your tool is so useful, I don't even bother playing the new sets until they are ready in your deck builder.

 

You are a huge asset to the community!!

Hello,

 

More and more people seem to have problems with the card images display. Once copied into the folder where the DeckBuilder is installed, the card images do not show in the application.

 

In most cases, this comes from the default behaviour of Windows 7 or 8 UAC, which protects the default "C:\Program Files" folder (and its derivative on 64bit version of the system) used for program installation. The UAC prevents the installed program to see files copied manually after the installation.

 

There are two solutions to this situation:

 

1) Adjust the UAC to low level or disabled state. This reduces your system's security. So, if you are not sure, don't do that and apply the next solution ;)

 

2) Resintall the DeckBuilder into a folder not protected by the UAC:

  • Make a backup copy of your deck files and .dat files which are into the current DeckBuilder folder.
  • Then, uninstall the DeckBuilder
  • Download the last version of the DeckBuilder
  • Install and, if necessary, change the destination folder for installation to something like "C:\DeckBuilders" or "C:\Card Games". Do not use "C:\Windows" or "C:\Program Files" or "C:\Program Files(x86)".
  • Copy back your deck and .dat files into the new folder, after the installation is complete.

The version 1.1.13 and above of the DeckBuilder setup program will propose a folder like that, but it works only if you make a new installation. An update of a previous version will not move the program to another location.

Though, I found that the proposed folder, by default, for the installation is not very convenient, generating a supplementary level of folder depth. So, please adjust it to a single folder level or wait for the next version...

 

Cheers,

 

Zorbec

I installed in C:\CardGames on Windows 7.  Does not work.   In addition, the Image Pack builder does not work either.

Hummmm....you may have another situation then...

 

Could you be more specific about what "does not work" and how, please ?

 

Any error message ?

Did you copy the .dat files where the DeckBuilder.exe application is installed ?

Have the .dat files the correct size compared to the size given on the download page ?

 

Let me know.

 

Zorbec

Yes.  The program runs fine... but the images do not load/show at all.

 

The only error message I get is when I try to run the Image Pack Builder (not sure if that's needed at all)

Hi J,

 

I suggest that you contact me by email (you'll find my email address in the readme.txt file).

 

Please, send me a screen capture showing your DeckBuilder started, so that I can see more clearly how you set the screens up.

Also, it would be interesting if you could do a screen capture of the Windows' Explorer opened on the installation folder of the DeckBuilder, showing the files present into this folder with full details (file sizes and dates at least).

 

The ImagePackBuilder is only usefull to build your own packs. It is no use if you downloaded the packs. Though, it could be interesting that you give me this error you got on it. This may be a clue.

Maybe you should check again the .dat files sizes compared to what is listed on my website. A misuse of the ImagePackBuilder may have overwrite them with empty files.

 

Cheers,

 

Zorbec

Hello,

 

I'm working on it on my spare time.

Sorry, no estimation yet, I'm extremely busy with many other things at the moment, but I'll do my best.

I'll keep you informed.

 

Cheers,

 

Zorbec

Hello,

 

The long wait has finally come to an end...for a while ;)

 

A NEW VERSION OF THE DECKBUILDER IS (AT LAST) AVAILABLE !

 

Many thanks to The Bear, of the Hall of Beorn blog, for the english scans (the Bear is cool !), also to Ian of the Tales from the Cards blog for helping me integrate his custom expansion The First Age, finally, to Moritz Schubert and Patrick Laffey, generous donators I didn't have the opportunity to thank yet !

 

The (quite long) list of new things:

  • Added cards of the Trouble in Tharbad adventure pack (french).
  • Added cards of the The Nîn-in-Eilph adventure pack (english & french).
  • Added cards of the Celebrimbor's Secret adventure pack (english).
  • Added cards of The Road Darkens saga expansion (english & french).
  • Added cards of the unofficial custom expansion The First Age (english).
  • Added a specific special filter to list all cards authorized to be played with The First Age custom expansion (Filters->Capabilities->Custom play).

The english image pack is complete, the french one misses a couple of extensions (see the website).

Comments, suggestions (and kudos) are welcome !

Have fun !

Zorbec
