I'm not sure what I am doing wrong but I am having difficulty with multiple card backs. Cards with backs other than the default back do not display with images at all. Well, they display with my spawned.jpg image.
I am creating a plugin for the new Arkham Horror card game and there are not only multiple card backs for player cards vs. encounter cards, but many of the game's cards have alternate sides, with alternate text.
I have put into my plugininfo.txt the <definition><kind>ISALLOWINGMULTIPLECARDBACKS</kind></definition>
I have also tried <definition><kind>ISALLOWINGMULTIPLECARDBACKS</kind><value>yes</value></definition>
Neither have worked to fix my issue.
In my carddata.txt file I have tried labeling the cell in the imagefile column as (card),(card) as instructed, but with no success.
Specifically, my image files are called AHC01_1a and AHC01_1b so I have tried AHC01_1a,AHC01_1b in the column with no success. I know I have created the carddata.txt file correctly because all other, non-multi-card-back cards display correctly with their images and the default card back when I load the plugin.
I have tried to eliminate the underscores with no success.
I have tried putting the image files in alternate locations with no success. For example, I currently have the image files saved under AHLCG(plugin)->sets->setimages->core. I have tried to save each file in a specific file for card backs under setimages to no success. I have tried putting the alternate backs with my general card backs under AHLCG(plugin)->sets->setimages->general.
I'm stumped. I am not finished with inputting all of my card data into my carddata.txt file nor have I finished including all of the definitions I want for the plugininfo.txt but I wanted to solve this issue before spending so much time on this. Is there a need for me to delete the card text of the cards with multi-backs? I dont know what to do!
Thanks in advance for any help,
