[RTR] Return to Ravnica Patch for Cockatrice (264/274)

  • #1
    If you're having problems, try to explain it like in a bug report.

    How to install
    If you can download a 8MB file and you don't mind getting all sets (this is probably you):
    1. Download cards.xml from here.
    2. Backup your Cockatrice cards.xml.
    3. Replace the old cards.xml with the new.
    Or if you want only the Return to Ravnica cards:
    1. Download rtr-cards.xml from here.
    2. Open your Cockatrice cards.xml as well as the downloaded file in your favorite text editor (read: Notepad).
    3. Copy and paste the contents of the downloaded file into cards.xml, right before "</cards></cockatrice_carddatabase>" at the very end.
    4. Save the file.
    5. Start Cockatrice.

    By the way, is there a fundamental difference between an "architect of thought" and a "mind sculptor"? Seriously, Wizards...

    Can you grab the pictures from the http://www.wizards.com/magic/tcg/article.aspx?x=mtg/tcg/returntoravnica/cig? The pictures we got from the party (http://media-dominaria.cursecdn.com/attachments/100/866/635032498323111140.jpg for example) look terrible in Cockatrice. Thanks anyway.

    So I rewrote the image scraper, and it now gets its images from that gallery — but only for that gallery. As a result, cards that are not yet in that gallery (like our dracogenius friend) are not present, even if they're available in the MTGS spoiler section.

    On a related note, there may be a higher incidence of errors. If anyone happens to find one, please report it.

    I added the 4 preview cards from today and the 4 cards from yesterday, so this file is 84/274.

    I am going to try out an automated system. It is available at http://97.84.178.187/m/ . It should update automatically. Please don't kill my server.

    The file isn't complete, it's only the RTR cards.

    Hey I am having some trouble with the spacing. I figured out that the cards were just an update and I manually added them to my complete cards.xml. However the cards have a "tab" length of space (maybe 10 spaces) before each name. This is minor when deckbuilding but when playing with the cards they space out the entire screen and is irreversible until quitting cockatrice. Have tried redoing the manual update and restarting cockatrice to no avail. Any advice? (Am on newest cockatrice build on mac OSX. Never had any issues before this).

    Having some issues with the FULL cards.xml

    I have followed all the basic steps (backup old file, delete add new file, run trice)

    Since when running trice RTR didn't show up, i ran oracle and loaded up the new RTR included cards file and it does not show up on oracle. at all either.

    It seems to be working for me (all cards), but the Jarad card has no text or picture. The only thing that comes up is the name.

    If someone would give me a place to start editing sets (I have an .xml editor but have no idea how to edit the sets) I could potentially create updated versions of the .xml files to help Arxanis when he is not available to edit sets/provide an automated system to edit sets. So far I've got the gist of how to formulate paths to the pictures, and how the table rows work, but I have no idea how to format the card files to match the original cockatrice database without scrupulously re-editing the automated patch downloads in full.

    Yep, this is an issue with the script. I have the patch on hand and I plan to push it to the server as soon as possible.

    A fairly recent update changed the location of the cards.xml file. Make sure that you're editing the one in your AppData (Windows) / Library (Mac). Oracle is not meant to parse this file, and it will not be able to do so successfully.

    There shouldn't be much of an issue with XML formatting, other than removing unnecessary whitespace. It should handle random indentation fine.

    That doesn't work either. Trice will not register this patch at all, really getting on my nerves now.

    Can`t even find my XML file, it`s not in AppData or ApplicationData, I use windows XP.

    Thanks a bunch for the update.

    some images were better in the previous version, but it's nice to have 125 cards.

    Update made Dreadbore go back into ugly image. :
  • #22
    Thank you for the update man Smile

    Edit: if you want to change the images, find the card inside the cards.xml and change the link to the image for another one, it's not hard.

    So, you're a jellybean connoisseur.

    Boy, do you love jellybeans! More importantly, you love good jellybeans, meaning root beer flavored jellybeans. Because those are the good ones, and the other ones are bad.

    I only wanted the rtr cards, so I downloaded that and copied it into the cards.xml file an all of that went smoothly, but when I open cockatrice the cards just aren't there? Any ideas?

    Ensure you're editing the right cards.xml file.
