Has anyone tried making cards with the newest version yet? - I've been trying just now, and noticed the symbols for attack/defence/willpower in the text seem to have gone - does anyone know how to insert them? i thought the html tags were <as> <ds> <ws> but that's not doing anything.

Those were for Strange Eons 2 plugin.

Now the symbols are inserted with the tags <att>, <def> and <will>. You can find a more complete reference in the blue button next to the Rules field.

 

If you find something not working properly/at all, say it here.

 

I was about to write this: Also, you can use the Context Bar section in the Preferences to include buttons for the icons. But I found it doesn't work. I have something to fix :P.

A WIP update:

  • corrected a bug preventing card type texts to show is up.
  • the problem with context bar buttons not showing is fixed. 
  • draft templates added, you can select this option in the plugin Preferences.
  • Campaign and Attachment Boon card templates are in printable quality.

Here: 4shared

And here: GoogleDrive

 

This update won't be available in the catalog, because I'm adding some more functions to the plugin. A manual installation is required: open Strange Eons, and then the seext files contained in the zip to install them.

 

If you find any problem post it here.

Noticed a bug with the custom sphere option. When I tried to export a card with a custom sphere template, it changed the template color back to the default. 

 

Also, the custom sphere template for heroes doesn't contain the space for custom icon on the card anymore (it did before, but today it was suddenly gone).

 

Using windows 8, if that helps.

If you are using Java RE version 8 on your PC, the plugin will through an error:

Uncaught java.util.UnknownFormatConversionException: Conversion = '>'

If that's the case, uninstall Java 8, download Java 7 (from here for Windows users) and install it. It should work properly. If not, report it please.

 

I'll upload a new version of the plugin working with Java 8 in a few days.

Few issues, but the main is it doesent work as 7 either.

After issues of not even getting it to work in the first place I uninstalled Java and SE3 then installed Java 7 ( update 60 and tried 55) then reinstalled SE3. I can open the LOTR cards but still get the same error.

 

Also is there a better step by step guide then the one Hilarious Pete did? It is very outdated and the pictures are broken. I am really new to this program and nothing worked on getting the ability to make the LOTR cards.

 

Took a long time to figure out where to put the plug ins, stuck them in all folders possible in SE3.

 

Also where does that tar file go even?

 

Even after installing Java 7 . 60 and installing SE3, it said it cant find any versions of Java and that it can DL it for me?

 

Any help would be great!

Bug corrected. I tested in Linux and Windows XP, should work properly on other OS. Download the new WIP version:
 

Here: 4shared

And here: GoogleDrive

I'll make it available in the catalog later. If any problem is found, report it please.

 

Few issues, but the main is it doesent work as 7 either.

 

Probably, Strange Eons is still using the java it downloaded (you can check it on the Help>About window, bottom left question box). First, let's try this:

  1. Download the zip file from one of the mirrors above, they are ready for Java 8. Unzip them somewhere.
  2. Open Strange Eons. Go to Toolbox>Manage Plugins. Uninstall every Lord of the Rings file from there.
  3. Close Strange Eons and open it. Drag and drop unziped files on the Strange Eons main window and install all of them.
  4. Close Strange Eons and open it. Try making a new card.

If this doesnt work:

  1. Close Strange Eons and uninstall it. Check both boxed when asked.
  2. From Control Panel, uninstall any java installed.
  3. Reboot your PC.
  4. Install Strange Eons. Let it download java from the net.
  5. Do the stuff from the previous list.

First method didnt work, still had error. so I tried the second. Nothing.

 

Looked in my program list and there was no Java at all so I reinstalled Java 7 Update 60.

 

Then I installed Java RE version 8. Had both Javas on computer now. Still got an error. Uninstalled Java 7 update 60 and rebooted

 

All I have is Java 8 update 8. No other Javas. Loaded SE3, and got the error:

 

uncaught java.util. UnknownFoormatConversionException: conversion = '>'

 

I use Windows 7 enterprise 64bit. am I missing something here still?

In the Plug In Catalog on installing the LOTR plug ins are there any for the first time that need to be installed? Maybe missing some. Here is what is checked for installing...

New WIP version:http://www.4shared.c...ngsLCG-WIP.html

 

New components:

  • Nightmare cards(Enemy, Location and Treachery)
  • Boons (Objective-Ally and Attachment)
  • Burdens (Objective and Treachery)
  • Fellowship sphere(Hero, Ally, Event and Attachment)
  • Presentation(Nightmare) and Preparation (Nightmare)

 

 

 

Installation:

  1. Download the zip file from one of the mirrors above, they are ready for Java 8. Unzip them somewhere.
  2. Open Strange Eons. Go to Toolbox>Manage Plugins. Uninstall every Lord of the Rings file from there.
  3. Close Strange Eons and open it. Drag and drop unziped files on the Strange Eons main window and install all of them.
  4. Close Strange Eons and open it. Try making a new card.

 

To load cards with custom sphere the option use advanced controls in Edit>Preferences>lotrlcg must be selected.

 

As with any other WIP version:

  1. Make a safety copy of your old files before loading them with this version, just in case. You may want to check portrait and text adjustments.
  2. If you find any problem (text or images out of place, software errors,...), report here.

I'm writing a guide to the plugin. Now is only available in spanish, but it has a lot of pictures, and with an online translator you can understand almost everything. When it's finished, I'll translate it to english (or something similar): http://www.4shared.c...Mba/GuiaSE.html

I had the problem of string conversion error that your guide says it is a problem of Java 8, but I had Java 7. Well, I just updated to the stable release and it worked fine. So no worries here.

 

This new version kick ass, it is very customizable and clear. 

 

Will you support nightmare quest card and alternative card art ? (those seen here for exemple http://octgn.gamersj...ate-art-cards/)

In the next stable release I'll add support for the Nightmare Quest, rule sheet and a custom component described here: http://boardgamegeek...4-faction-cards

 

For the alternate frame cards I need some good scan to work from.or GeckoTH's templates.
