I stand corrected, don't spam customer service, we don't want to annoy Alfiya :D

I'm only looking for permission to publish PvS support until AW is able to come to some kind of satisfactory solution.

I do have it up and running for me so I'm only looking to make life easier for the rest of the community.

This is pretty awesome indeed.

I am having troubles in using this tool. In Internet Explorer, the spells do not get listed on the left side, so I switched to Google Chrome where I can see them. However, I can not see all of the cards (tops only) in the bottom right corner... also I can't move from selecting a card (hovering over the spell information line) to hovering over the card picture itself without leaving the spell card.

I was hoping to find some kind of scroll bars, but I do not see that any exist. What am I doing wrong?

I would like to be able to click or double click on the detail line and pull up the card image like with the sbb here.

Thanks again for all your effort.

Can you post a screenshot of your window so I can try and figure out what the problem is?

Hi guys,

I've posted a new version of my spellbook builder, it is still available at https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/spell-book-builder/sbb.html edit: http://www.spellbookbuilder.com

This version includes Paladin vs. Sire and Lost Grimoire.

I've been talking to AW and they showed some interest in supporting me, but they were incredibly inert (we've been emailing for more than 2 months with no action taken) so I decided to go ahead and publish without their blessing/support/approval/whatever as I saw a lot of people complaining about spellbook in the forums lately.

I've included a downloadable version at https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/spell-book-builder/SBB.zip for those of you who want to use spellbook builder without internet connection (on planes, vacations...) or if you just want spell images to load faster.

Cheers

Just like DaveW mentioned I'm having problems using this tool as well.

There are no cards visible on the main left side of the screen and I can't select anything either.
Suppose I select "Incantations", then I do ... what ???
The program does nothing and shows no cards.
How do I start a new spellbook ?

Could you give us a short manual on how to
1- create a new spellbook
2- how to add cards to it

This is what the builder looks like when you first visit the page. You need to select the number of sets you own and the click hide sets in the upper right corner.



After you've done that once it should look like this when you visit it next time. Hovering your cursor over the spell will display it. There are 16 slots, each holds a separate spellbook. Spellbooks will persist across sessions if you use the same browser/computer. You can export/import, but the format (at this point) is not compatible with other builders so it's only good to move your books around and use this spellbook builder.



If you still have issues try a different (and up to date) browser. If that doesn't help feel free to PM a screenshot and I'll look into it.

What card would you like to add? A few promos or a bunch of cards (for example adding Academy)?

Yes but without pictures.

Sorry for the short post above :)

I am mainly missing a way to look at exact card texts, traits, targets, subtypes and costs and so on. My brain is not capable of remembering that all.

To build a book I mostly have a core idea. I want to check some cards for that. I want too also search for more synergies then.
After that I am most times looking through cards in school to fill needs, then through all schools whats missing, then staples.

If I am coming to the last point I start feeling the need for a calculator for 120 sbp.

So for me most important are
1) detailed card infos. Starting with picture (has all info), continue with full search for traits, targets, effects and so on.
2) all cards incl. Academy
3) sbp calculation
4) a builder with slots
5) export/import to octgn

I hope that helps you even if this is only my point of view and I can't talk for others.
I really appreciate that you are building this tool! It's a big help for the community! Thanks a lot for that !!

Hi grga,

Thanks for the quick reply.
I have a screenshot but how do you paste it in this post ?

Anyway, the yellow area where you have all your cards listed is simply "empty" with me.
There are no cards listed and I have set all sets to 3.

I'm not surprised by that answer. I work on a mac and I've tested it on Safari, Firefox and Chrome. I will most likely work if you use one of those browsers on windows too. I have no (easy) way of testing and fixing it for IE and it's not a priority at the moment. Sorry...

I installed Chrome and it seems to work great now.
Fantastic job you have done. Congratulations.
I'm very happy to have an operational SBB.

I'll be trying it out in the following days and keep you updated.
