MWS Tokens

  • #1
    Is there a way to change the pictures of your tokens in MWS. I have a folder of real token pictures, but don't know how to use them.

    Make sure of the following:

    1. The image files (*.jpg, of course) are all in a subdirectory, named TK, in the same directory where you keep all of the other sets' and expansions' images.

    2. Make sure that the <*> as indicated above is spelled exactly the same as the token name (like any card and its corresponding image).

    IOW, treat all token art as though "Tokens" is another expansion, in an images directory named "TK"

    Hope that helps.

    BTW, I also have an issue or two with token art. I generated a token image or two (for example, Marit Lage), and did all of the above. I can see the image is picked up by the card just fine when I'm in deck viewing and editing mode, but it doesn't show up while in Play mode.

    Any suggestions?

    From the torrent:


    MWS shows token pictures based on the token's power and name.

    Let's say you have two pictures in TK (the Tokens folder).

    One is Goblin.full.jpg and the other is Goblin1.full.jpg (notice "Goblin1" has no space).

    Goblin1.full.jpg will show up for any Goblin token with power 1 (whether it is 4/1, 4/2, 4/3, 4/4, etc).

    For all other Goblin tokens, MWS uses the generic picture Goblin.full.jpg.

    Finally, MWS only matches the token's power and the number if there are no spaces. Goblin1.full.jpg shows up for all 1/X Goblin tokens.

    NOW, if you rename the picture to Goblin 1.full.jpg (notice the space), it will only show up for tokens named Goblin 1.

    That is how I use multiple pictures for my tokens. If I want to put out three different pictures, then I make three different tokens: Beast, Beast 1, and Beast 2. Even though all three are 4/4 tokens, they have different pictures because of the names.


    "BTW, I've often noticed you use to avoid putting split cards as cropped. Maybe you're not aware that MWS supports crops for split cards? It's just a bit tricky: you need to have a 312x445 pic. MWS will cut the 2 pics out of the jpg and use them to build the cropped card. For pre8th templates, MWS used to cut the card correctly, but with the post 8th layout, that's not true, and you need to edit the pics a little by shifting them aside."

    Thanks for your explanation, it works well Wink

    But my Faerie Rogue Token don't have a pic.

    I checked the correct spelling, its right like all other of my token.

    I tried Faerie Rogue.full.txt and Faerie Rogue1.full.txt

    If make a token without the note "flying", there will be the pic.

    But with the note "flying" there is no one?!?!?

    Could anybody help me please?

    Necroing is bad, don't do it.
