MSE - Easy Army Card Creator (V2.5) (New Glyph Cards)

I found this program called Magic Set Editor a while ago. As its name implies, it was originally designed for creating Magic: The Gathering cards. However, it has a very nice scripting system that enables the creation of other templates. I figured I'd try to make a Heroscape template for it, as the Magic cards it turns out are very authentic-looking. This is the result.




An example card made with Magic Set Editor.

A card printed with MSE (print scale needed may vary with printers)

DOWNLOAD:

- Required Magic Set Editor

- Required V2.5 Core/Classic Templates - 8.99 MB - (zip)

- Keywords and Wordlists as of Wave D3 (Updated 10/24/10) - 24 KB - (zip)
--- Installation: Extract to Magic Set Editor 2/data. Back up custom keywords first.

Expansions and mods:
Spoiler Alert!



INSTALLATION:

1.) Install Magic Set Editor if you haven't already.
2.) Back up heroscape.mse-game/keywords if you have added custom keywords you wish to keep.
3.) Delete any folders in Magic Set Editor/data beginning with "heroscape".
4.) Download the Official Templates ZIP or RAR.
5.) Extract the contents of the ZIP or RAR to Magic Set Editor/data.

Expansions/Patches:

1.) Install the official templates (by following the steps above) if you haven't already.
2.) Download the desired expansion ZIP or RAR.
3.) Extract the contents of the ZIP or RAR to Magic Set Editor/data.

Don't forget to read the included Readme file, even if you've read it in a previous version! The workflow changes slightly with every update, and you do not want to have a "facepalm moment" later on when you realize you've been doing extra work.

That's pretty cool. It might replace my use of Photoshop....

Re: Magic Set Editor - Easy, Realistic Army Card Creator

I'm missing how to change the color (for Generals) of the card. I can only use the default Jandar.

Where's the option to change generals? Thanks


edit: Nevermind. That's really slick- you just type in the general's name below the character's name and it automatically switches the graphic. Nice.

edit again: There's also a dropdown in the same spot. How did I not notice this? this thing is great. Good job.

Thanks for the comments! I'm very glad this is helpful .

Yeah, I noticed that the boxes on the Jandar card are hard to see because of their color. I should probably put a darker card first...

Also, you can change the background image manually by clicking anywhere there isn't another text box or image.

Re: Magic Set Editor - Easy, Realistic Army Card Creator

Is there any way to make the type smaller for the powers. I have 3 pretty lengthy powers on a card, and it just runs off the card.

Unfortunately, no. I plan to add automatically resizing text in an update, hopefully soon.

Re: Magic Set Editor - Easy, Realistic Army Card Creator

One thing I just noticed. Very minor. I finished a card, saved it. Exported it as a jpg. Closed the editor program. Everything's great. When I go back into the program later to make a change, I open the file, it's all fine- except it's reverted back to the Jandar style. Still says the correct general text, but it's just blue again instead of red, or whatever. Very quick fix to just switch it back, but I just thought I'd let you know.

My full review is that this is fantastic. I have had a dozen or so customs fully made that I use at home, but had only bothered to post one of them, because it took me so dang long to use GIMP to make a decent looking one. Now I can post them thanks to you. <thumbs up>

Thanks for that (and the shining review) . I'll see what I can do. I've already got RotV Aquilla templates made, I'll see if I can fix that bug and get some variable-size text going and post a new version soon.

Re: Magic Set Editor - Easy, Realistic Army Card Creator

I can't create my own symbol for a general. I tried to import a symbol I made for a Magic set, but it didn't work. HELP!
