New Spellbook Builder for Windows (MWSB)
« on: November 14, 2014, 03:23:21 AM »
English version message:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi All!

Finally, after 9 months of work (as a pregnancy), I have decided to release my spellbook builder for Mage Wars, MWSB (Mage Wars Spellbook Builder, original, isn't? XD )

Here is the link for download:

https://mega.co.nz/#!5oh0TKDJ!2g9GZRRqABNkA51t6FbQTPCanc_hET6CH6yCR--tTjE

If someone of you find an execution error, or a data error, please, take a screen capture and send me a message with the description of you was doing, adding the screen capture, for I could fix it, and upload, as soon as possible a new version, without the error.

Sincerely, I hope you like it as long as i liked creating it.

Notes:

- I have tested it on Windows 7 and Windows 8. I don't know how it will work on Windows XP.
- You must have your Windows updated, because the program use some of his libraries.
- I had some problems downloading it with chrome. Here you can see a mini visual tutorial to how to download MWSB using Chrome:

Hola a todos!,

Por fin, tras casi 9 meses de trabajo (como un embarazo), me he decidido, y saco a la luz mi creador de mazos para Mage Wars, MWSB (Mage Wars Spellbook Builder, qué original XD).

Aquí teneís el enlace para descargarlo:
https://mega.co.nz/#!5oh0TKDJ!2g9GZRRqABNkA51t6FbQTPCanc_hET6CH6yCR--tTjE

Si alguien encuentra un error de ejecución, o de datos, por favor, que haga una captura de pantalla y me mande una descripción de lo que estaba haciendo, junto a la captura, para poder solucionarlo y subir lo antes posible una nueva versión sin ese error.

Sinceramente, espero que os guste tanto, como a mi hacerlo.

Notas:

- Está probado en Windows 7 y 8. No se como funcionará en XP.
- Es necesario que tengáis el Windows actualizado, ya que utiliza algunas de sus librerías.
- Con Chrome he tenido algún problema al descargarlo. Aquí tenéis un enlace a un pequeño tutorial visual para saber como descargar MWSB usando Chrome:

Un saludo.

Good job, looks very stable to me, no error found.

Two things i miss:

- All the promo cards. Maybe you can add them in a own category.

- The possibility to export the deck to a forum post.
Akiro, I have never prayed to you before. No one will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that one stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Akiro... so grant me strength! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Thank you very much.

- I don't enter the promo cards because i haven't their images.

- I'm going to consider your suggestion for the next version. I think it's very interesting.

See you.

Yes, that's the problem with Chrome and the .exe files. If you download it with firefox you won't have problems.

Thanks a lot.

GREAT JOB

Thank you very much.  ;)

Yes, of course, you can delete a card from your spellbook.

- First, you have to select the card that you want to delete, in the list boxes of the spellbooks, not the main card list.
- Second, select the copies of that card that you want to remove.
- Third, press "Remove Card", and the copies of the card will be removed from the spellbook.

You have other faster way, when you have selected the card, if you press the "Enter" key in your keyboard one copie of the card will be removed automaticaly.
You can use the "Enter" key to add cards to the spellbook on a faster way, when you have selected a card in the main card list.

I have attached a image, explaining the steps to remove cards from the spellbook.

I hope I have helped you, but If you have any problem, ask me again.

Thanks.

See you.

Javi.

After building two spellbooks with it, there are more things that you can think about:

If i want to see cards from only one school, i have to adjust the filter f.e. to dark school level 9 and the range to <= ,
Then press Apply Filter. Thats three clicks for a simple action that i have to use several times while building my deck. When i want to see spells from another schools i not only have to do this step with the other school, but have to change the Dark LvL 9 too, thats 4 clicks. That's a bit complicated.

Secondly, the massages "Are you sure you want to quit?" are very annoying to me. They appear, even when i just saved my deck.

Everything else works fine. I'm very impressed :)

Hi, yes, if you want to see all the cards of a school you can use two different filters >= 1 or <= 9.
But in the next version i think i can put checks for each school for see all the cards of that school.

Now all the filters have the "AND" association, in this way when you select different filters you are telling that the card must have all the caracteristics that you selected.
For example,  if you check the FAST trait, and select >=1 Nature School Level, you are looking for "Cards of >=1 school level AND has the FAST trait".

I'm thinking that in the Schools selection filters, I could add the "AND/OR" option, and you will can looking for cards of differents schools, but only in the schools selection filters, because to do this with all the filters would be very very very hard work  ;)

You can use the "Enter" key for apply the filters instead click the button.

Secondly, the massages "Are you sure you want to quit?" are very annoying to me. They appear, even when i just saved my deck.

Everything else works fine. I'm very impressed :)

I think is a good idea to request quit confirmation, because it's possible that you have clicked on the exit button by mistake.


Thanks a lot for your suggestions.

I'm so sorry for read this.

Did you have an error notification before it occurs? Do you have any notification instead the program launching?

I think may be the database got corrupted.

If it occurs more times, you let me know it please.

I think on monday I will update a new installer, because I have detected a minor error in the program. Stay tuned.

Thank you very much for your help.

Regards.

Javi.

I found out that only the shortcut got broken.
The program itself works fine!
Sorry for wrong information.
