To complement the actual online resources and give you offline deck building capabilities, I propose you my new Deck Builder software for The Lord of the Ring LCG game.
It is available here: eric.minet.free.fr/lotrbuilder/index_en.htm
Some of you already know and appreciate the Call of Cthulhu LCG version of the Deck Builder (see here : www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_foros_discusion.asp.
This one has a whole new themed user interface, along with the necessary adaptations to the new game. But it keeps the portability and extensive features of its predecessor.
As for my previous Deck Builder programs, it is a FREEWARE and runs on any Windows 9X/2K/XP system (or Linux/Mac OS using Windows Emulator programs).
The minimum requirements are :
- About 3 MB of free disk space (without pictures)
- A graphic resolution of 1024x600 pixels in thousands of colors (higher resolution is strongly recommended).
The software does not require any additionnal DLL, runtime or database and does not install anything into the system folders or registry.
It is fully translated in both English and French. You can independently select the displayed language for:
- The main user interface
- The built-in semi-graphic card display and cards lists
- The use of external picture libraries in one of the two languages.
It contains a complete database of the published cards in english and french, including FAQ corrections, flavor texts and illustrator names.
It displays cards in a compact manner to keep the software as light as possible.
This is the best spoiler list you may have at your fingertips.
There are extensive filtering capabilities for player and encounter cards lists, custom sorting, full statistics, scratchpad for deck preparations and more.
You can add cards to your deck with just one click and adjust quantities very quickly.
The deck list can be loaded, saved, exported (text-delimited, spoiler and html formats).
More features will be added to the software in the next weeks and months.
THIS SOFTWARE IS NOT SUPPORTED BY FANTASY FLIGHT PUBLISHING INC., so ask me directly for any support, suggestions or bug reports.
