Hi everyone,

First I would like to thank and applause all the people (1 or more) who spent their precious time to offer us such a great tool as Creacartas.

I am a new user and I have two questions on the tool (the second one was initially shouted but the forum would be a better place to discuss it).

---

1) White line on the top of equipment and other action cards layout.


Am I the only one to obtain a "not so good embedding" of my pictures on the action cards layout (equipment and all the other I tested)? A white line appears on the top and it looks like the whole picture is not correctly placed / resized.

This is not really important after all ... but I must admit such a detail causes a "not finished" feeling.

2) Size of text icons


I read it was expected but I cannot resize icons in the text (while the text resizing works perfectly). I could decide to give up icons but I would like to know whether a light "patch" could be imagined?

In fact it would be easy (at least I think it would be) to link new [xxx] to resized icons, and to let users type the correct [xxx] to display the icon with the correct size in regard to their text size.

---

For both points, I am really ready to help if time is needed (once again, it's a great tool!!!!).

Hello,

I intend to send an email to the programmer of the Creacartas with the modifications you proposed.

If you would like to see anything else implemented to the Creacartas, please post it here.

También va por los demás. Si alguien cree que el Creacartas necesita alguna modificación, que la exponga aquí, por favor.

A silly thing, could be added the posibility of resizing the card name text size when those are very long?

For example, when making a proxy for Millicent Smith, Puritan Vampire Hunter, it remains Millicent Smith, Puritan Vampire...

By the way, I agree with the size of text icons thing, specially the (D) icon always is misaligned

Sorry for my english xD
---------------------

Una tonteria nada más, se podría implementar la posibilidad de cambiar el tamaño del texto de los nombres de cartas cuando estos son demasiado largos?

Por ejemplo, al hacer una proxy de Millicent Smith, Puritan Vampire Hunter, se me queda en Millicent Smith, Puritan Vampire...

Por cierto, de acuerdo con el tema del tamaño de los iconos en el texto, especialmente el (D) siempre queda desalineado.

Hello Damnans,

I would say that the point about icon (and text) size is a modification ... but the point about the embedding of pictures on library cards looks more like a defect (which impacts the current functionality).  This is why I underlined it in orange instead of yellow.

Should it be possible to put the embedding patch on a higher priority than the size modifications ?

Una vez mas: muchas gracias!!

I took time to make a check :
- all action card layouts share the same image embedding problem,
- exceptions: power, event and conviction card layouts which look OK.

Hi there,

Do you know if/when a patch is planned? Is there a way to help?

At the moment, Is it possible to get the latest card fonts and/or card layouts, in order to make some local tests before sharing?

Thanks in advance,

I am just waiting for the programmer to give me an estimate. That won't take long, but implementing those corrections and modifications may take longer (maybe a couple of weeks).

I will let you know when I hear from him.

Coding from scratch : surely not.

Patching something which already works on some layouts : I think so.

For add icons just write the icon between [ ]

like [Action] or [POT]

[D] for a d action explanation

 

black text is [ b] and [ /b]

Italics  [ i] [ /i]

0. INTRODUCTION

Cardmaker is an online tool for VTES card creation, which allows any vtes.net user to make cards as quickly as easily. In addition, it also allows you to save those cards in a searchable database.

1. OVERVIEW ON CARD CREATION

Creating a VTES card with Cardmaker is very easy. You just have to click either on the "Crypt" button, for a crypt card, or on the "Library" button, for a 
library card. When starting a Cardmaker session, the default option is the crypt card creation.

Cardmaker is not a "smart" tool, so it is not going to sort your vampire's disciplines alphabetically, nor will it automatically place the action icon onto a library card when we select the political action card type in the "Card layout" field, and so on. All these factors are up to the user, to whom we have intended to give as much freedom as possible in the card creation process.

Some card creation fields are shared both by library and crypt cards, and are listed below:

Back to Top

1.1. Card name

This is a field for plain text only. Neither text formatting, nor other font sizes, nor icons are allowed.

Back to Top

1.2. Card text

In the text box of library and crypt cards you may use the following commands to modify text format or to insert discipline, clan or other icons.

By default, all commands have to be written in lowercase.

Card text in library cards will be centered from left to right; the same way it is in the genuine library cards by White Wolf.

Cart text in crypt cards will be centered from bottom to top, and aligned to the left; the same way as it is in the original crypt cards by White Wolf.

Back to top

1.2.1. Text format

Bold text: Type right before the text you want in bold format, and after that text.
EXAMPLE: Camarilla Prince of Cairo.

Italic text: Type right before the text you want in italics, and after it.
EXAMPLE: It is hard to free fools from the chains they revere.

Draft effect text: Type [draft] right before the draft effect text, and [/draft] after that text.
EXAMPLE: [draft]As above, and gain 1 pool when you play this card.[/draft]

Font size: Select the font size from the list.

Back to top

1.2.2. Inserting icons within the text

(D) action icon: Type any of these within the text box: [D], [d] o (D).
EXAMPLE: [D] Bleed at +1 bleed.

Merged icon: Type [merged] where needed.
EXAMPLE: [merged] once each action, Goratrix may burn 1 blood to get an additional +1 bleed.

Flight icon: Type [flight] where needed.
EXAMPLE: Fidus gets +1 stealth on undirected actions. -1 strength. [flight].

Basic level discipline icon: Type the 3 first letters of the chosen discipline in lowercase and between brackets (with the exception of Thanatosis, which, in order to be told apart from Thaumaturgy, should be written [thn] instead of [tha].
EXAMPLE: The Herald may play cards requiring basic Daimoinon [dai]m Oitebce [pot] and/or Presence [pre] as a vampire with a capacity of 5.

Superior level discipline icon: Type the 3 first letters of the chosen discipline in upper case and between brackets (with the exception of Thanatosis, which, in order to be told apart from Thaumaturgy, should be written [THN] instead of [THA].
EXAMPLE: [DEM] As above, with +1 bleed.

Clan icon: Type the clan's full name in lower case and between brackets. If the chosen clan is an antitribu clan, type "!" either before or after the clan's full name (without the "antitribu" word).
EXAMPLE: He gets +2 bleed when bleeding a Methuselah who controls a ready Ventrue [ventrue] or Ventrue antitribu [!ventrue].

Action icon: Type [action] where needed.

Action modifier icon: Type [action modifier] where needed.

Ally icon: Type [ally] where needed.

Combat icon: Type [combat] where needed.

Conviction icon: Type [conviction] where needed.

Event icon: Type [event] where needed.

Political action icon: Type [political action] where needed.

Power icon: Type [power] where needed.

Reaction icon: Type [reaction] where needed.

Reflex icon: Type [reflex] where needed.

Retainer icon: Type [retainer] where needed.

Back to top

1.2.3. Carriadge return... whatever :-)

Cardmaker handles carriadge returns automatically, but if you wish to insert one within a text (e.g., in order to dodge a capacity circle), then type [br].
EXAMPLE #1: Once each turn, Nergal may reduce the cost of a card he plays by one blood. [br]+2 bleed. Infernal.
EXAMPLE #2: +1 stealth action[br]Put this cad in play...

Back to top

1.3. Illustrator

Indicate here the name of the person who did the artwork or picture on the card. This is a field for plain text only. Neither text formatting, nor other font sizes, nor icons are allowed.

Back to top

1.4. Uploading an illustration

Card illustrations can only be uploaded from your computer. In order to do so, you will have to click on the "Browse" button located on the right of the "Image" field, and select the image file on your computer. Then click on "Upload", and you will see the uploaded image on the card preview.

The recommended size for library card illustrations is 450 x 580 pixels. And the recommended siez for crypt card illustrations is 580 x 450 pixels.

The image files you upload to our server will have to maintain that proportion, since the Carmaker does not allow you to resize the image or alter its proportion.

Back to top

1.5. Upload a custom-made card background (Create-A-Clan)

Card backgrounds can only be uploaded from your computer. In order to do so, you will have to click on the "Browse" button located on the right of the "Layout" field, and select an image file on your computer. Then click on the "Upload" button, and you will see the uploaded card background on the card preview.

If you want to create a new clan, creed, etc. (e.g., for a Create-A-Clan tournament), download a blank crypt card template first by clicking on the "Download a blank crypt template" link. That template is in Photoshop format and has several layers to make the image retouching process easier.

Once your new clan background is finished, you must convert it into an indexed color image and save it as a GIF image file with transparencies, so that you can upload it to the Cardmaker.

Back to top

2. HOW TO MAKE A LIBRARY CARD?

In addition to the shared fields, the library card form has these particular fields:

Cost: Select the type of cost from the drop-down menu, and then indicate the numeric value of the cost in the contiguous field.

Capacity: Fill in this field to indicate that the library card has a given capacity when it is put in play or that it increases a vampire's capacity.
EXAMPLE: You should type "1" if you are recreating The Embrace card.

Requirements: You can only add up to 3 card requirements (one for each "Requires" field). Each "Requires" has a drop-down menu with the available options.

Back to top

3. HOW TO MAKE A CRYPT CARD? 

In addition to the shared fields, the crypt card form has these particular fields:

Advanced (ADV): Mark the ADV box for an Advanced minion.

Capacity/Life: Type the numerical value of the life or capacity of your crypt card.

Group: Indicate the group of your crypt card. This field also allows text (e.g. "ANY").

Disciplines/Virtues: Start choosing Disciplines and/or Virtues from bottom to top (i.e., select a discipline or virtue from the "Discipline/Virtue 1" field first, then from the "Discipline/Virtue 2" one, and so on).

Clan/Creed: Select a Clan or Creed from the drop-down menu.

Back to top

4. SAVING A CARD IN OUR SERVER

In order for you to save a card in our server, click on the "Save" button, located below the card preview. The "Save" button will not appear if you have not ever clicked on the "Preview" button during that card's creation process.

The maximum amount of cards each user can store in our server is 40: 20 library cards and 20 crypt cards.

Back to top

5. LOADING AN EDITING A PREVIOUSLY SAVED CARD

In order for you to load a card you have already saved in our server, you have to click on the "Archive" button, then select the card you want to upload, and then press "Load card".

Once you have loaded your card, you will be able to edit it.

Back to top

6. DELETING A CARD

Deleting one of your cards from our server requires you to click on "Archive", select the card you want to delete, and then press "Delete card" (Cardmaker will ask for confirmation).

Back to top

7. PRINTING A CARD

Printing a card you are visualizing requires you to click on the card with the left button of your mouse. Then you will see a better resolution image of the card, that you will be able to print normally.

Back to top

8. SEARCH FOR A CARD IN CARDMAKER'S DATABASE

Select "Card database search" from the Cardmaker main menu.

Then, If you want to find a library card, click on the "Library" button, and, if you want to find a crypt card, click on the "Crypt" button. Cardmaker will show the crypt card search form by default.

Now you just have to fill in any fields you wish and press "Search".
