Spellbook Builder
« on: August 13, 2013, 06:38:58 PM »
Work is progressing on the new Spellbook Builder.

Just a quick question for people who used the previous one

http://mw-deck-builder.herokuapp.com

Did anyone use the CSV or PDF export options? Or the upload feature?

Are there any other export features you would have liked to see in that app?

Yes on the CSV no on the PDF. I like the CSV as I can bring it into Excel. A text output would also be desirable say for Tournaments .

Not much reason to have PDF if there's a good print CSS - I'd love that though

A BBCode export would be lovely, too.

An alpha version is currently being tested internally. I need to fix some issues with the card list filtering and then finish adding the export features. We also need to make it look pretty

No eta yet. We're doing internal cross platform testing now and I need to finish adding all the current cards and fix a pretty serious bug with the filtering

And we need to make it look pretty :-)

Looking pretty is a secondary issue though and I will discuss releasing it as is once we get all the cards added and the bugs out

Take your time with making it look easy on the eyes as well, public perception is swayed more by looks than functionality I found :-P

Quick question for those who used the old SBB, is it necessary for the spellbook builder to show a picture of the Mage and allow you to view their ability card? Or can this be dropped?

I'm not too worried about the picture of the mage, but I do like pictures of the spells. 

The mage ability card does have a bit more info that's sometimes handy to check against - but mostly more as a new player.  I can imagine that it won't be long before I know them and the abilities well enough I don't have to check - I'm thinking of things like how often can I remove conditions with the Priestess, vs a purify spell etc.

At the same time, this could be captured by text as easy (or better?) than the card image?

I thought I'd refer to the school types etc more than I do.  In the end I just add cards that look interesting and swap them out when I see their cost, rather than looking for spells by school.

I agree with Moonglow, much more interesting stuff on the stats card than picture of the mage. Maybe needed depending on how you display things with the onscreen layout. I.E. if the card is not displayed, can I pull it up to view it?

The cards will all be viewable. I just am thinking of removing the Mage images and making them a pop-up or smething similar
