Big Game Def Update — Test Release

I set up a separate feed to host the test release builds of the upcoming MTG Game Def Update, which you can find at  The versioning of the game is 3.1.99.XX to indicate that it is the test build.  It is safe to add this feed and install it overtop of the current release in the OCTGNGames feed, just be sure to uninstall the test build and reinstall the current release if you wish to switch back.

As a public release of the Test Build, anyone is welcome to try it out and test it for bugs or missing elements.  A lot of the game engine was reworked, so it’s important to make sure that ALL PREVIOUS FUNCTIONALITY IS STILL IMPLEMENTED in the test build.  This includes all notify messages to the chat log as well — make sure they say what they’re supposed to.

If you find any bugs, issues, or weirdness, please feel free to communicate either through the comments section, or in the OCTGN lobby chat (I monitor the chat logs so I won’t miss anything).

CHANGELOG (may be some stuff missing):

  • Huge rewrite of the autoscript processing system (this shouldn’t be too noticeable for players, unless something ends up broken)
  • Added M14 tokens to the database
  • Identical tokens with different artworks have been combined together into 1 card, with the other arts showing up as Alternate cards.
  • You can swap Token arts by right-clicking the token and selecting ‘Swap Token Art’
  • The autoscript token generator will always produce the token you chose in the Swap Token Art method.
  • Your selected token arts and Disable Autoscript settings will be permanently saved, even if you leave the game.
  • Flashback support added, use ‘Cast Card (Flashback)’ or the CTRL+F hotkey in your graveyard
  • Morph is properly supported via the ‘Cast Card (Morph) action, or the CTRL+F hotkey in your Hand or Library
  • Morphed can now trigger autoscripts when flipping face-up
  • Double-clicking a card while viewing your Library will now move it to your hand (instead of triggering the ‘Draw Card’ action), and ask if you want to reveal its name to opponents.
  • Removed CTRL+S hotkey for shuffling Graveyard, Exile, Sideboard, Command Zone, Plane/Scheme Pile
  • The game properly notifies which ability you activated, or which mode you chose, in the chat log
  • Made basic mana symbols easier to search for in the deck editor:
    {W} –> @
    {U} –> #
    {B} –> $
    {R} –> %
    {G} –> ^
    {TAP} –> ` (apostrophe above tab key)
    {UNTAP} –> ~
    {SNOW} –> =

Thanks for the interest in helping test this new build!
