C3G PDF Generator-Public

This is your go-to source of information for how to access and use the C3G PDF Generator to create stunning PDFs which you can use to cost-effectively print out your favorite C3G Units, Glyphs and Destructible Objects.

Go here to bring up the application.

C3G PDF Generator

General Instructions

It should work on any computer that supports java (sorry iFolks). It might ask you to upgrade your java which is always a good idea.

Once it's up and running, you start with 1 page's worth of slots (3) that you can use to select a C3G item to add to the PDF. Use the radio buttons to switch between units, glyphs and destructible objects.

You can sort the drop downs with the drop down at the top (only 2 sorting methods are supported at this time). Use the "Add Page to PDF" button to add another 3 slots to the PDF. I hear this actually doesn't works on macs at the moment, but hopefully I'll find a workaround for that.

The "Separate Glyphs" checkbox determines whether the glyph stickers will be placed in the extra white space on each page or whether they should all be moved to a separate PDF when generated. This is useful when the stickers are intended to be printed on sticker paper.

There's 3 shortcut buttons that are intended to make it easy to reset all the drop downs and to switch between comic and mini cards.

When you're all ready, hit the Generate PDF button and select where the PDF will go on your computer. There is no actual printing in this application, you'll manually bring up the PDF separately and print from there.

Troubleshooting:

- If you're having trouble downloading the application, it might be because you're behind a firewall that doesn't play nice with Java Web Start. I might go ahead and make a separate downloadable zip file at some point if I get enough people requesting it.

- If you ever download a card that looks somehow messed up on the PDF, go under the file menu and select the "Clear Cached Images" menu item. That will remove all the locally downloaded cards and the app will download fresh ones. Hopefully this will clear up any image issues.

- If you ever have any glitch in the program that isn't covered here, please feel free to PM me with a description of what happened, the steps that led up to the bug and the log file (accessible from the help menu).

Feel free to send me any questions you might have and any enhancements you think would make this tool even better!

This looks so great! I'll definitely be using this next round of printing.

Re: C3G PDF Generator-Public

This seems really cool. Unfortunately for me, whenever I click on run program it takes me back to the launch screen. Which then requests me to download it again. I must be in the group of people that are behind one of those firewalls, then again I might be just doing it wrong. If I'm not put me down for requesting a zip file.

Re: C3G PDF Generator-Public

Great tool!!

Not only does it allow me to get around having to reload a page for the "two per page" idea, but allows me to score one more on there! Easier process and higher output? Nice

Re: C3G PDF Generator-Public

Nice! So, is there no way to get the public designs that haven't been added to a wave yet?

Re: C3G PDF Generator-Public

I think I am the only one, but I like printing double sided with the card backs. Can you add the card back to the pick list, or put out a pdf with 3 card backs on the page?

EDIT: This tool is awesome! Will it be adapted for other custom projects as well, such as C3V?

Re: C3G PDF Generator-Public

And, if I may offer a suggestion, what about a "print card backs" option, to generate a page of those in reverse? Hope I'm not being That Guy for saying this... I assure you, I and all those who love C3G, are dancing with joy!

Edit: Poooorrrrkiinns!
