Subscription feature goals

I’ve started a list of upcoming features and updates for the MTG game, which will be based on OCTGN’s subscription goals.  See this page: http://octgngames.com/mtg/subscription-features/ for the most up-to-date version of the list, as I will be updating it periodically with new targets.

  • 15% – In-game sound alerts for certain game actions such as passing priority and responding to actions (game sounds will only play for subscribers) NOTE: Currently postponed until the bugs surrounding in-game sounds are solved.
  • 18% – permanent Game Setting to Enable/Disable card alignment and autoscript/stack
  • 20% – Customize the tokens that are automatically created by the autoscript system
  • 23% – Allow dynamic customization on how the alignment orders the cards, including horizontal vs vertical stacking, and which row certain card types are placed in.

Subscribing to OCTGN is a great way to help support the program’s future development, and get some cool features in the process!

MTG Game 3.1.8.6 Changelog — M14

Changes made in the 3.1.8.6 update:

  • Made some of the text a bit larger for proxy images
  • Added M14 cards
  • (cosmetic) Reorganized the python code, added some more commenting

Note that this isn’t a clean update, it’s mostly to get M14 out there before the pre-release.  Images will come later, and the cards probably won’t be autoscripted for a while.  I’m in the process of rewriting a bunch of stuff so a more hefty update will come later.

Where is Modern Masters & M14?

Hey all, we’ve had Modern Masters card data in the game def for a while, but they have been proxy images.  The source that makes the high-quality scans has had troubles acquiring a complete set to scan so it’s taken a lot longer than normal to release the image pack.

Here is a temporary image pack for Modern Masters, which contains older printings of the cards instead of the new ones: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5xwdhfltrctqnzw/ModernMastersV0.9.o8c. (Credit to [can’t remember who])  The proper image pack will be posted in the Downloads page when it is finished.

M14 card text will be added to the game in the next few days.

  • Removed all instances of the winforms multipleChoice boxes
