Where do i get this plugin?

Although not entirely evident from the conversation; this is a discussion about Magic: the Gathering, specifically the new Khans of Tarkir set.

You can grab the Magic: the Gathering plugin here:  http://www.siegescg.com/magicthegathering/high/updatelist.txt

I love the new set so much, but I've noticed Dazzling Rampart is listed as having a Converted Mana Cost of 2, when it's actually a 5-drop.

Just purchased the ipad version and loaded the magic plugin high URL. Took forever to update and install the plugin. Everything worked like clockwork, pressed connect and I get the same thing as above. This might shed some light on troubleshooting. I'm tethered to my iphone which currently has been throttled to edge speed (5-25kbps). I know seems criminal to be connected at speeds reminiscent of my 1998 56k modem lol. But I digress, back to the info at hand for troubleshooting.

Home connection is mentioned as above.
Guest connection 1 is a DSL public wifi from mcdonalds.
Guest connection 2 is a throttled satellite connection from a grocery store public wifi.
Guest connection 3 is a top end FIOS fiber connection from a Starbucks.

I've found that home/1/2 all will kick back the errors we are seeing because they're low bandwidth ranging from 5kbps-1.2mbps but depending on load and other variables the speeds fluctuate. I will get all kind of strange things happening within these variable speed environments.

I've founds that a flawless 400mbps fiber connection at a local Starbucks was the best result for using lackey as intended/flawlessly.

Lastly the solutions I would think could alleviate these issues could be as simple as modifying a config file to extend the timeout duration of the program when it's waiting for responses, lists, images etc.

Or

Enabling a buffer of some sort to even out the bandwidth sags for instance. Like old school skip protection for CD players. If it detects an interrupt in connection it can buffer up to a specified amount of data and the program can pull from this buffer as it sees fit, and when the buffer is depleted it will be a live stream again till another sag/interrupt. This could be done server side with minimal impact and you could see if its application side if the buffer is messing up, or client side if their connection firewall or antivirus or whatever isn't working.
Things to consider. Unfortunately, it may be just impractical to connect to a network game when your internet speeds are abysmally low. I don't really think that restriction would be surprising. You mention an idea about buffering as a means of getting around low speeds, but remember that there are more than one player. While tricks like that might make YOU able to play (barely), I don't think all the other players would like having to wait for your data transfer to catch up. And lag can be confusing with a CCG. One of you might move a card, and the other might move the same card before your message arrived, and that can be confusing to resolve.

Hi Gordon, the box powers seem to be in the file that was linked in the other thread: http://www.lackeyccg.com/forum/index.php?topic=2541.0 I can send you the ZIP with only the box powers if that other DL takes too long for you. Can you integrate them then? Does it only work as cards that have then to be drawn out of the deck + reshuffled, as the alliance cards, or is there another way to represent the box powers?
