Regarding my previous post, I have implemented a workaround of sorts - my program now writes both uppercase and lowercase card IDs to the file. This doesn't appear to cause any errors as it seems like the AW SBB just skips over any card IDs it doesn't recognize. However it does take several extra seconds to load.

All that to say, I am fine if you decide to make the change or not.

If you are able to make the SBB case-insensitive when processing card IDs I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Its not really something that would be high on my list of things to do as it would require a lot of testing. Those card IDs are used all through the system.

first of all, i would like to say, i love working with the SBB to set up my spellbooks

just two thoughts however :

1) in near future, could it be possible to have the promo cards as well in the dbase ? I would like to add hurl rock and clear mind to my wizard build...

2) also i think it would be very handy to have a "type" filter in the spell book window as well, just like there is one in the spell list window...to be able to analyze the chosen spells in a more detailed way

..but thanks anyway for this great tool !


is there a chance of seeing the promo cards in the SBB in near future ? i would like to include lion savagery and critical strike in my warlock build..thanks a lot !!!

I have no say in that at all so you'd need to talk to Bryan or Patrick. Drop them a line as I suspect that they don't actively follow this thread

It'd be useful if the spellbook builder remembered which sets I own (with a cookie?), so I don't have to re-enter them each time.
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

A request not for the sbb, but for the card list database... would be nice if the mage cards were there too.

I'd love to be able to change my mage after adding cards to the spellbook. Make it error or remove now-illegal cards and then recalculate spellbook points.

I'd especially want to check all the elements for a wizard to see which is the cheapest on spellbook points.

Do you think it would be possible to change the XML format of cards to include the type of the card?

Like instead of:

Code: [Select]
<card code='DNA01' number='3' cost='2'> Acid Ball</card>
it would be:

Code: [Select]
<card code='DNA01' number='3' cost='2' type='attack'> Acid Ball</card>
Would allow some form of sorting while working with the xml file.

Pixel, is there enough info in the card database and SBB to make it searchable for cards with certain traits?  i.e. if I wanted to browse all creature cards with intercept or flying?

There is. It would require a bit of added code to the Card Database so I would need to get approval for that.

Wicked. It'd be amazing if it was possible. It might be cause I dip in and out of mage wars but I don't know all the cards as well as I'd like. I like to think I'm not alone... Often making a book I'm trying to find cards with particular traits in a school and contrasting how they'd fit my book.
