LOTR LCG Deck Builder for Windows

150 posts in this topic

This is a great piece of work, thanks for all the hard work.

I'm really looking forward to the Khazad Dum update as I'd really like to store all my new Dwarf decks using this software. Any idea when you might be releasing this?

Is there any chance of a mac version? Is it programmed in Java?

Looks really good, this application, and I'd love to use it on my mac...

As stated earlier, there is no chance to have a Mac version for the moment. I don't have the hardware and software for this.

It is programmed with an old version of Delphi. The last version of Delphi supports MacOS in some way, but it's still young and I don't own it (neither a Mac itself, which is required).

Yet, you can run it with Crossover or any other Windows emulator, some other people did that successfully.

Thank you for the compliment.

I am working on the KD update now. I should receive my pack later this week and I hope to get the french version before the week-end.

There are many cards to add, scan, check and re-check (and not much spare time for it), so it will take me a little more time to finish. I will probably release the new version next week.

Cheers,

Zorbec

Hm. How complex is the source code or how huge is the project, respectively? I can try to rewrite in ObjC for MacOS only, if you have any interest in such a cooperation. I can use Java as well, making it multi-platform-operational... 

This, however, depends on the size of the project and how many hours of my spare time I can use for it...

Thank you for the proposition, but it would be a really big job to convert the source code in ObjC or Java.

The project is a little less than 70000 lines of code and uses graphical and reporting components that will not be necessarily available in other languages. So, I don't think it's worth the effort for the moment.

Cheers,

Zorbec

this is the best ever!! wish the coc one was using the same interface.. but still .. all sorts of awesome.

1 suggestion though.... .. . It would be cool to be able to remove a card from the deck form IN the deck list.. Like you can click 1,2,3 to add the card, but would be cool if you could remove the card as well from that same screen. Not a big UI issue.. but would be a nice feature..

Also, are there any plans to include the encounter cards? I know "deck building" doesn't come into it.. though I think it would be cool for custom quests.. but then the app will cover the entire game from start to finish, and we would not have to use internet sources to look up cards and stuff.

I can only see the quest cards... not the cards in each encounter set

There's a little separate window that says "LOTR LCG Deck Builder by Zorbec" on the top left, and it has a card image for an encounter card, a quest card, a player card, and other icons.  You need to click on the encounter card in that window, and that will (or should) bring up all of the encounter cards.

Hi Booored, I'll think about your suggestion, but it is not necessarily that simple.

For the CoC one, you may have a good surprise in the next weeks...but shhhhhh ! It's still in the works gui%C3%B1o.gif

Hello,

After being delayed by a nasty flu and the release of the new CoC DeckBuilder, here is a new version of the LOTR LCG DeckBuilder for Windows happy.gif

Here is the list of new things:

  • Added cards of the The Redhorn Gate adventure pack (english & french).
  • Added a button on the card text and picture display screens, to the left of the closing button, to make these screens able to stay on top of the other screens of the DeckBuilder.

Many thanks to Drew of www.cardgamedb.com for the english scans of the last pack.

Another version will come soon, with The Road to Rivendell, a few days after the french pack is made available gui%C3%B1o.gif

 I'm so envy at everyone. I have a mac and there's no deck builder software :'( Ever considered to port it to OS?

Hi,

I've replied to such request already. Sorry, but the answer is no : I don't have to hardware and software for this.

Yet, It's been reported that the DB works on Mac using Crossover…

Cheers,

Is Foundation going to be implemented any time soon? Thanks for the nice tool by the way!

Hello,

Thank you for your kind comment.

I will add Foundations of Stone as soon as I get the English scans and the French pack.

I've got a very busy week now, so probably not before next week, though.

Cheers !

Hello,

Sorry for the long delay !

I was delayed by some technical issues with some new features I had to postpone for the moment, then I went to vacations lengua.gif

A new version of the DeckBuilder is available.

A warm thank you to The_Big_Show for his generous contribution cool.gif

It adds the last published adventure pack in both languages, the new FAQ errata and, unfortunately a reduction of images sizes, as explained below.

The list of new things:

  • Added cards of the Foundations of Stone adventure pack (english & french).
  • Added errata from FAQ 1.3
  • Reduction of card images size to follow FFG/Edge rules of fair use for their copyrighted material.

The reduction of card image size is similar to what is done on well-known online card databases. Sorry for that, but we have to follow the rules…

Many thanks to Drew of www.cardgamedb.com for the english scans of the last pack.

Have fun !
