By default, scans are supposed to be stored in the './games/Game_Name/pics' folder. You have the opportunity to choose your own storage folder in the 'Options' menu, section 'Card scans' (It may be the case if you collect the HQ scans from slightlymagic for example). No card scans are joined with any GamePacks. Many image formats and options are available in the 'Options' menu, section 'Card scans'. HQ scans from Slightlymagic of scans from Cockatrice are supported by The Vault, provided that you correctly configure the options (format, cropping etc.)
TL;DR, it's on the first page, you just need to read it.

@Tharkos: What you suggest is on my radar. It will be implemented in the next versions of The Vault. Thanks!
To import sidebords, you have either the choice to add [SB]: in from of sideboarded cards, or to add the line "Sideboard" before listing the sideboard.
I recently did an export of my card list to add it to another, more portable card list. After the export, quite a few of the cards that were listed had the wrong Edition's abbreviation. I went through my *.txt file and edited each one. It wasn't super time consuming.... I am just trying to alert you for a future update! BTW, This is were I found my answers. https://andrewgioia.github.io/Keyrune/icons.html
Thank you very much for creating this program!! I have & will always enjoy using it!!
Currently, this would mean i have 4 Entries in the Grid View, while being able to double Click any of those and get a Window that shows me a Total Count and all different Instances of the Card.
What i would prefer is to have a generic Entry (Or just the "Top Card" Entry) In the List, with the Total Count as an extra Column i can use as Quantity and only see the specific printings by Double Clicking the Entry.
Is this currently somehow possible? Should be a Simple Filter for "Top Card" in the easiest Implementation. For my personal preferences, that would be PERFECT.
Also, what about the Thing with CSV Imports? You don't need to adjust to other Peoples presets. Just Create a CSV Layout for Import and people will adjust their files to be able to import their Collections. I've recently Scanned my Entire Collection with the Delver Lense app and am now trying to figure out the best way to import it into The Vault - My best bet is probably relying on a secondary Program that The Vault can import, import the CSV there, save it and import THAT to the Vault.
Edit: Also, what would be really handy was, if you could export a Buylist from a Deck. So, say i have been Tinkering with a Deck, i have associated this Deck to my Collection to see what cards i do and don't have. Would be very Handy to just export a List of Cards and Quantities of what i need.
Okay, so for those who want to import their CSV's:
You kinda sorta can. More or less.
While you can't directly import csv Files, you can import MagicAssistant .lst Files that you can Easily create yourself from .CSV Files.
The Format is as Follows: No Header, First Line is Data, Space as Seperator:
Quantity Quantity_Foil "Name" "Set" Version
Yes, Name and Set go in quotes (because of obvious reasons with Space as seperator).
So, as an Example with 2 regular and 1 Foil Doom Blade's from M13 it would be
2 1 "Doom Blade" "Magic 2013" 0
Save this list as a .lst File (You can just rename the extension)
Unfortunately, you can't Import Language or Conditions, but can work around that by splitting the Collection/CSV into seperate Files by Language/Condition.
You then import each of those Lists into The Vault, bulk edit those settings and merge the Collections afterwards.
Unfortunately, since the program does not support Bulk Edit (Or selecting multiples at all) we need to work around this as well.
Look for the newly Created .tvc File that was created when you imported the List and open it in you Favorite Text Editor like Notepad++.
Since i pay no attention to Conditions, i only had 2 Lists, One for german Cards and one for english Cards.
So in this example, to set all the Cards of one List to german, open the newly Created .tvc File (that was created when you imported the List) and open it in you Favorite Text Editor like Notepad++. And use "Replace All" to replace
. Of Course, you can also do the same with the Condition. Just beware, Foil is NOT a boolean state in The Vault, but a Condition (ie. you have Two Conditions, "Near Mint" and "Foil Near Mint").
Hope this might be of some help for people who struggle to import the Collection, because it is an amazing Software. For now, importing is kind of a hassle, but i think it's really rewarding afterwads.
@ Eruyaean : Excellent suggestions!! I will see what I can do. If I understand well, you want the grid to display the same information level as in scan view, with every occurrence gathered in one entry for each card's name.
In addition, I will implement importation capabilities from csv files for decks/collections as you suggest, so that you no longer have to deal with such tedious manipulations to make csv importations possible. thanks again for the suggestions
@ ivardensphere : For the moment you can only display alternates if their scan files are named as follows: Armor Thrull1.jpg, Armor Thrull_1.jpg,Armor Thrull 1.jpg etc. Brackets are not handled by the Vault. I will add on option to support brackets etc.
Is anyone here familiar with exporting a collection form TCGPlayer? If so how could I go about doing that. I've looked on their site's tutorials for exporting and none of them met the needs to export into another program or another site. I'm possibly just not cut out for technology either, lmao. Thanks in advance!:)
