State of the Force of Will Plugin

Hi, I apologize for the lack of conversation up until now.  I just want to be upfront — the Force of Will TCG community in my local area died off early this year and I have not been able to follow along with the game’s progress lately.  Due to commitments to other game plugins in addition to a busy work schedule IRL, I no longer have the time to keep the Force of Will OCTGN plugin updated.

A while ago I wrote a program that would automatically parse and compile Force of Will sets from the online card databases, with the intention of making it quick and easy to keep the plugin updated with new set releases, but those sites have undergone significant coding changes which broke the program.  I have not had the time to fix the code, and due to the strong desire to not manually type out set files, I have not been able to keep the available sets updated.

So until further notice, there will not be any updates made to the Force of Will OCTGN plugin done by me.

If there are active Force of Will players out there with basic programming (XML, python and C#) experience, have the necessary time commitment, and would like to keep the project going in my absence, please feel free to contact me either at octgngamedirectory@gmail.com, or via the official OCTGN discord server (https://discordapp.com/invite/Yn3Jrpj).  The code for the game plugin is publicly available at https://github.com/brine/FoWTCGOCTGN.

I apologize again for the disappointing news.

MTG 3.4.0 Update

The Magic plugin for OCTGN has been updated to version 3.4.0 and with it some exciting new features!

1) Color symbols in the deck editor

These symbols now replace the traditional {C} symbols in the text. They still respond to the {C} notation for searches and filters, though.

2) Image Downloader Plugin

This is an easy-to-use plugin found in the Deck Editor (click the “Plugins” menu to find it). Use it to download and install images on a set-by-set basis. No more image packs!
NOTE: All tokens are stored in the “Tokens” set. There’s currently no way to download tokens from individual sets.

3) Ixalan & Iconic Masters release!

Check the in-game changelog popup for more details on this update

AGOT LCG 2ed Re-Launch!

I have uploaded the new version of the AGOT 2ed plugin to the OCTGNGames feed.  Please note that any images that you might have had installed prior to this update will need to be reinstalled.  Check the new Image Fetcher plugin (found in the deck editor) for an easier method of locating and installing image packs.

I have set up a changelog notification system which will pop up in-game whenever a new version is updated.  Please check out that message for more information on this new version.

Rebooting a Reboot

Hello A Game of Thrones Players! I am excited to announce a new version of the AGOT OCTGN game plugin, aiming for a release date of Friday August 25th, 2017. Those who already have the plugin installed do not need to do anything extra — the game will automatically update to the new version once available.

The new version is a complete overhaul of the scripting and gameplay for A Game of Thones, and features a stronger emphasis over manual player control. This leads to more natural feeling gameplay, with basic scripting available to assist with common interactions.

The deck editor has also been overhauled, with cleaner rules text and symbol icons! The most exciting feature is the new Image Extractor deck editor plugin, which will automatically download and install card images! No more image packs required!

Here are a few screenshots showcasing the changes to the plugin with this new update:

MTG Game Plugin 3.3.8 Release

This update brings Amonkhet to OCTGN.  A few new features and fixes were added as well:

  • Added Amonkhet, Nissa vs Ob Nixilis, Mind vs Might.
  • Added support for “does not untap on next untap step”, AKA the Exert keyword. Older card scripts will eventually be updated to support this.
  • CTRL+V shortcut is now for Exert (originally the permanent does-not-untap toggle).
  • CTRL+SHIFT+V shortcut is now Keep Tapped During All Untap Steps (the old CTRL+V functionality, renamed).
  • New Table group action (CTRL+U) to untap all your permanents, doesn’t change the active phase.
  • Added scripting support for activated abilities in graveyards (including Embalm).
  • BUG FIX: clicking the untap phase would untap your opponents cards.
  • BUG FIX: Attacking while tapped wouldn’t trigger attack scripting (bypass dialog didn’t work).
  • KNOWN BUG: Split cards (including aftermath) aren’t working properly, will fix in the next update.
