The Dungeon Style Hi-Resolution Master and Basic Templates are the same card styles as used by C3V - though pretty sure they don't use MSE. They do use different blanks that have the "bleed" area and the cut lines.

Yup. Although I noticed some small differences. Mainly for Utgar and Valkrill army cards.

Utgar High res master side has a regular black border instead of a stylished one. (see comparison in spoiler). I re-made it using a C3V army card once, not sure if I already shared it there or not. ^^
Actually, it's the same for the other generals too, but it's less noticeable. Once I planned to update them all, but I can't remember if I finally did it or not ahah.

Also about Valkrill, the bottom of the background (for the figures image) used by MSE is almost black, with not much details. The other cards has some nice lines and so. Here again I don't know how but I managed to get a better version not a long time ago.

Spoiler Alert!


Concerning the basic Dungeon High Res blanks, I made the asset for MSE from scratch, taking edges from the Master Side, adding pieces from C3V army cards and so on... So they get the same theme as C3V blanks, but are almost completely different if you want to compare pixel by pixel. ^^

Edit : yup, looks like I also changed at least Ullar borders. ^^

@DanieLoche - Can you re-zip up the assets for the High-Resolution Master Templates and repost? Thanks.

I had to change a few things* from my MSE version but here it is. It should work exactly like the current version but with a better mask to fit more text, an auto-size on the card name and enhancements on the army cards.
Warning : I don't use the asset to add custom markers, not sure the compatibility with it ...


* putting back the settings for custom logo : I used it to add C3V/SoV logos on the french cards I make for them)
* deletion of the french High Res blanks and the code to switch between french & english blanks ^^

How do you all go about getting it to print at the right size after exporting?

I use Microsoft Publisher - I'm sure other similar programs would do the same thing. Once you add the image to the page, you can set the image size to spec.

You can open the picture up in GIMP and under (I think) the Image heading you can set the print size. Then I just save it as a PDF and it prints nicely.

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

I tried returning to MSE forums today and I couldn't log in. I pulled out my paper notebook of passwords. still couldn't log in. I tried emailing myself new password and no email is sent. I tried creating a new account, which requires email confirmation and no email is sent out...

frustrating..

I'm going to scour this thread on how to make my own templates.

I was hoping to practice with something simple, literally just a custom card back. and that way they would print samesize and position as card front.

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

I recommend you the "learn by imitating" method. Just duplicate and open an asset folder (to keep a clean copy of it). There you can find a file named "style". This is the key. You can open it with any text editor you want (I recommend "code editors" like notepad++) . You can use the actual fields to begin with and see how it works. It's enough to get a new card style quite easily. If you want to go deeper into it, you will have to check the "heroscape.mse-game" folder, with 2 main important files named "game" and "keywords". You will have to change them if you want to add new fields (first file) and with choice lists on them (2nd file).

Don't hesitate if you have any question. Those files are quite simple to understand and well organized. The first thing is to understand how they work !

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

@DanieLoche , Thanks for your words of encouragement.

Next question is, is there a way to adjust printing margins? By default, when printing 3x3 regular cards, about half an inch of white is on the left and about 2/3 inch is on the right. This becomes an issue when I flip the paper over to print the card back, because the margins remain same, mismatching the fronts from the backs.

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

For double-sided cards, I personally dont use this method : I print both front and back sides on the same page (If possible, side by side) and then I stick them together. The best configuration is if you can put them side by side and only need to folder the page to get them together (+ add some glue or scotch tape or whatever you want to old the whole thing together).

I you want to keep trying a both-sides printing, I recommend going through a software like Word and place your card image on the correct size and place on this page. This way you should get both images on the same place.
I recommend doing the tests with an image like this one to see if it matches. So that you don't loose to much ink, and can do multiple tests on the same draft page.
