New Spellbook Builder beta with DvN cards
« on: January 16, 2014, 09:15:14 PM »
Hi folks

I have finished posting a new beta of the SBB in its new home on the forum server.

You can now find the Spellbook Builder at:

http://forum.arcanewonders.com/sbb/

Changes
Now includes the DvN cards and the Druid and Necromancer
Fixes for all bugs reported so far
New preview window which is also moveable
Less code. There have been some extraneous code removed as I have simplified the preview system
Preview window now has a field that lets you copy and paste the forum BBCode for the previewed spell
Cards in preview are larger
Wall and Fog Bank cards now display horizontally and in a larger size

Found a bug? Please post a report. Have a suggestion? Please post it as well

Let me know what you think. Thanks!

This may seem like a silly question but once I've clicked on a card and it's image comes up, how do I get it to go away?

You must click in the [X] in the top right corner.

Top right x works for me...

Looks awesome Pixel - a lot going on on a smaller laptop screen, but still functional.  This is probably the opposite of all the other feedback about closing down the images when clicked - and it is way cleaner with one image replacing the other - but is there a way to hold one card open while I view another?  Kinda thinking of those times when I'm weighing options... ?  I guess like a hold feature.

Its something that I can look at after we have the final version shipped. Certainly would be useful :-)

Nice work. Any plans on making this into a mobile app?

Not at the moment. It would need a whole different UI for starters. The size of the data display would almost require a tablet at least.

Might be possible to make a card browser for mobile though

I'd still rather the opposite. There were a few threads back a few months where the request was around something like a pdf of the cards.  Essentially some way to browse cards without your set.  I'd really prefer a way to do this that didn't involve being tethered to the internet.
