X Minus 2 Customs Card Printer

X Minus 2 Customs Card Printer

The X Minus 2 Card Printer is the easy way to find and print customs cards right from a website, up to 3 per page, with no downloads or graphics editing required. Currently only C3G, C3V, and SoV cards are supported, but we're going to add cards from other individuals and customs groups too! (If you want your customs added, PM me for details).


Requirements: Any of the 3 previous versions of the "big 4" browsers. At the time of writing that means you need at least Internet Explorer v9, Chrome v32, Firefox v26, or Safari v5. Chrome is strongly recommended if you have the choice.

How to use
  1. After loading the webpage, just click through the green categories listed on the left to see the available cards.
  2. Click on the names of the cards you want added to your print job. The cards will show up in a grid in the main area on the right.
  3. If you want to remove that you've already added, just click on the picture of the card.
  4. When you have all that you want printed added, select whether you want two or three cards printed per page using the option below the list of cards. Three is the default if you skip this step.
  5. Now do a print preview and verify that everything will print how you expect it to. Assuming all looks OK, hit print! Here's an example print preview (from Chrome):


Problems / Questions / Solutions

I need to create a PDF so that I can take the file somewhere else for printing
Spoiler Alert!

The printed cards are slightly too small
Spoiler Alert!

Part of a card is cut off when printing
Spoiler Alert!

Markers/tokens printed along with a card are overlapping a neighboring card
Spoiler Alert!

What's an unlock code?
Spoiler Alert!


Planned features:
  • More cards!
  • 2 sided printing (partial support added)
  • A convince-the-commercial-printing-company-(Office-Depot,-Staples,-etc.)-into-thinking-this-PDF-does-have-an-OK-to-print-for-personal-use-allowance-so-they-are-much-more-likely-to-print-it-for-you-instead-of-hassling-you-about-it-containing-Marvel/DC characters" feature.
  • Ability to bookmark a list of cards (low priority)
  • Additional filters (e.g., lookup by wave / by name)
  • Card search?
  • Print glyph decals on separate sheet
  • Your suggestions!

What do you think, sirs?

Awesome!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: X Minus 2 Customs Card Printer

Just did a trial run. Print Preview initially showed the cards were too big, with it spanning multiple pages for just the 3 cards. All I did was click 'fit to page' and then it shrank down to one page and was ready to go. I'm using Firefox on a Windows system. Thanks a lot for this Xorlof!! I'm way behind in my card printing and this will save me a ton of time and money once I get caught up. Not that you need the rep but I'm sending some your way anyway.

Firefox is particularly difficult. There are some instructions in the OP, but basically if you...

1) do a print preview, and turn off headers and footers,
2) select scale 100% (NOT 'fit to page'), and then
3) print to a PDF file

...you will see everything should be sized exactly right, (well, within 2/100th of an inch or so anyway). Selecting 'fit to page' by itself will result in cards being a bit undersized.

Only step #2 is required for Internet Explorer, but you can also do step #1 if you don't want to see the headers on the printout. NONE of that is required in Chrome. It gives web developers the control to make everything needed happen automatically.

Re: X Minus 2 Customs Card Printer

Awesome !

It's not exactly customs, but I think that the add of the army cards from my Picasa Album(s) web should be very useful for us (les Franšais ^^) . (If you want some help to add cards, I can help also )

And a suggestion : make some filters (per wave & per name at least).


Bunch of useful resources (army cards,
blanks, online databases & more..!)

Re: X Minus 2 Customs Card Printer

Our prayers have been answered! Thanks, C3G!
Spoiler Alert!


*edit* I'm using Chrome & the third card is always being shifted to its own page. Any guesses/suggestions? (I'm still using XP, if that matters.)

Though numerous pronunciation attempts have been made, I have recently spurned my moniker. Feel free to refer to me as Waldorf or Sippin'onSki.

Re: X Minus 2 Customs Card Printer

Great work Xorlof.

BTW I just had a thought that the next project might assist here with the wave grouping.

Re: X Minus 2 Customs Card Printer

All rep goes to Xorlof on this one! And he deserves a ton!

(Though A3n helped with a lot of the technical stuff too, so rep that guy as well!).

I think I might finally have a good reason to switch over to Chrome!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: X Minus 2 Customs Card Printer

There's been a massive security breach on IE, so you want to switch to Chrome/Firefox/Safari/Opera ASAP.

Also, Xorlof, what does the title mean, anyway?
