Plugins & Plugin Creation Forum / Re: Battletech plugin update
« Last post by smurph_83 on April 16, 2015, 10:29:21 AM »
im always up for a game. a certain night/time and maybe a facebook group would help me greatly.

rules and such may be an issue, as certain card  have bad wording, star commander for instance. "you may reroll any die by any player this must be used during a mission" some take this as unlimited use. which it clearly is a once used per mission that he is involved in. kinda fell out with a player over this as he wouldnt back down and claimed he could reroll any die any time as many times as he wanted.

so perhaps if a group set up of a weekly battletech night we could have a (uptodate so everyone on same page) rules list (on facebook page as sticky?) and any misunderstandings go to a vote to avoid any bad feelings toward anyone. we all like to win but i prefer to enjoy it. :)

also besides all that we may encourage more players via facebook to join and it can house a link to the downloading of plugin etc. dont have to use your offical facebook if thats a worry.

@OP
I think you might be a bit confused as to what LackeyCCG is and how it works.
It's main function is to create plugins to allow existing games to be played online, using scans of the existing cards - it is (technically) possible to create a program to "scan the scan" and create a text database of anything it finds, bit it would be impossible for it to arrange this data in a meaningful way - it could not, for example, determine what a symbol represents, if it could even recognise it as a symbol at all.

A card text database is NOT needed to use Lackey, as you can (hopefully) just read all the card images. A Text database simply makes it easier to group cards according to different criteria.

Apps DO exist to create new cards (either for a player created game or a virtual game add-on) but they are either game specific (e.g. to create new cards for MTG) or they require all the different images/text required to create every card in a repository and some form of "programming" to pull them all together. It can be (and has been) done using an Office suite and mailmerge/reporting systems, DTP applications, or good old fashioned Photoshop.

Whichever way you do it, creating a plugin/add-on requires a significant amount of work on your part.

Tip: If you download a card text database to create a plugin - READ THROUGH IT SEVERAL TIMES and compare it to the card images. If you release a plugin with errors in it, it's your fault, not the person who created the database :)

I'm still around.  Haven't been on in a while due to lack of players.  If anyone wants some games, or is on at a particular time, then I would love to get a few games in.

Also, if there really are 6-8 of us, we should try and get a game night going or something.  I may have one or two more I can scrounge up from retirement.

It didn't used to and I don't recall changing anything. It's still in the general folder, same size as the images, and still in the update list and where it ought to be on the download location for it on the updatelist. Anyone else having this issue?

If you copy a plugin like War3000 and rename that copy to a plugin's name, such as "vtes" or what-have-you, Lackey will think you have that plugin installed and will show you who is playing it.

I don't think Trevor wants the names of plugins to be shown as I've heard that there are some people who official test commercial card games on Lackey, that only makes me more curious though!  ;D  *helps nudge*

I know that , it requires actually knowing all the names of plugins and ensuring you've spelt them EXACTLY as they've been listed.There's like 3 versions of vtes around as it is (VTES,vtes and vtes with other stuff attached to it) You'll also be unable to actually notice any new plugin that gets created unless you know about it on the forums or somehow hear someone talk about it in the mostly dead chat.

People who wanted to test official card games had plenty of ways before without needing to have everyone stuck in a perpetual fog of war.
If they REALLY wanted nobody to know about it , they could have just gave it a bogus name or used a peer 2 peer so it doesn't even show up on the main server. Possibly passwords too. ... i'll stop ranting now.

Man remember when we could actually see what games everyone was playing and not needing to ask on the forums? Those were the times...

right? *nudge nudge Trevor*
