My apologies if this is not in the correct place. I am more then willing to do this in the right place once it is made known to me (assuming it is not here).

I am on Linux (Debian Stretch) and I am running the binaries just fine with wine. Everything is peachy.

I have begun creating my first plugin, and the tutorial (here: http://lackeyccg.com/tutorialplugin.html#overview )says that the only file necessary to get a plugin working is 'plugininfo.txt', however if I don't put a cardback.png file in the dir as well, the choose button when selecting the plugin is greyed out.

I don't know if this is a code issue, or a documentation issue, but I thought that the devs or webadmin should know.

Also, it seems as though the link to the overview is slightly broken

http://lackeyccg.com/tutorialplugin.html#overview
http://lackeyccg.com/tutorialplugin.html

These two links take youto the same portion of the page.

This actually answers my question on the previous thread; I was wondering why the choose plugin button was greyed out. I hadn't spotted that a fix seems to be to add extra files.

Like you, I'm a newbie to creating a plugin.

I knew someone out there must have been as confused as I was! haha. I think this one is as simple as updating the documentation. Just gotta get the devs to see this thread!

Unfortunately, while Trevor keeps the site online and maintains the game server, he doesn't have much time for Lackey these days. He seems to check the Facebook group more than this forum, though, so maybe try there.
