I did not have time to test this out on Mac. I don't expect any issues, but if there are, post them in this thread.

If your browser gives you some warning that "This file may harm your computer," that is because it is an application and browsers tend to do that by default. I promise this will not harm your computer in any way.


--Update Log--
V2.0 - Program released.


--Installation--

No installation required. Once you download the program for your OS, simply run it.

This was built in Flash, so if it does not work for some reason, check for any Flash updates.


--How to use--

When you open the program, you will see a card on the left, and the interface on the right. Simply click on the large tabs at the top of the interface for more options.

Text Tab:

To edit text fields on the card, just start typing in the fields on the right, and it will update on the card. Your fields are, from top left to bottom right:

• Left Icon Numbers
• Right Icon Numbers
• Title - You can increase or decrease this by +/- 2 points by using the buttons above it.
• Identifiers - You can now use multiple lines here. I don't suggest more than two, but it's possible.
• Special Ability
• Verse - This now flows from the bottom up. No extra returns needed.
• Book
• Artist Credit - "Illus." is always tacked on. Just type the artist name, or leave it as Artist Unknown.

Unlike last time, this version will format all of the text for you. Just type away.

Note: The Ability and Verse areas can overlap. This is to allow for a long ability and short verse, or vice versa.

Type and Class Tab:

In this panel, just click on the icons you'd like to use.

Brigade Tab:

If your selected icon requires brigades, you can customize that here.

First, select which icon box you would like to edit. You must do this every time you come back to this tab.

Next, select how you would like the brigades to be split.

Finally, select your brigades using the color wheels below.

Frame & Image Tab:

The top options control the color of the card frame. You can either select a preset color (Or Ultra Rare), or use the sliders for a fully custom background color. Play around with it and see what you come up with!

Below that is the image controls. There are two ways you can use this:

1) If your image is online, simply copy the URL of the image file and paste it in the box, then click load image. It may take a few seconds to load depending on your internet speed.
2) If your image is on your computer, copy it into the same folder as the program and copy the file name. Be sure to include the file extension (.jpg, .png, .gif) or it will not load properly. So for example, if you had a file named image.jpg, simply move that file to wherever you saved the card builder, and paste image.jpg in the URL field.

Once your image is loaded you can use the + and - buttons to control the size of the image, and the arrow buttons to move it around. You will notice I left a bright blue background behind the image. This is a quick and easy way to tell if your image is not filling the box completely.

TIP: If your image is very small, then it will usually look bad when you scale it to fill the box. Try to find larger images.

Export & Revert Tab

Less instructions here than before! Yay!

All you have to do now is review your card, and then click the big export button. By default, the filename will be (card title).jpg, but if you would like to rename the file, be sure to include ".jpg". If you don't the image will not work properly.

Check the exported image for any final changes. If you'd like to make another card, just hit the big revert button to start the process again.

Once your card image is saved, you will need to find a website to upload your images. Imgur is a free service that works well for things like this.

And that's all there is to it! If you have any questions or suggestions, either post in this thread or send me a PM.

ENJOY!

While this version should include everything people requested, if you need a more specific card design, let me know and I can make it by hand.

As an additional note for the Export section, the following sites also are useful for uploading:
-Tinypic (easy to use interface without any extras, simple upload and copy the URL)
-Photobucket (requires account creation, I believe, but allows you to create folders/collections to organize your uploads)

Sites to avoid:
-Art sites like DeviantArt (they have restrictions on what you can upload and are stringent about copyright and such)
-Image sharing sites like Instagram (I don't think the images are formatted well on those sites for posting onto message boards)



Thanks so much for making this Lambo! :)

I REALLY appreciate this tool and have been using it extensively to test the new set.

I'd like to make a couple feature enhancement requests.

1. Can you add the ability to make 3 and 4 color cards like The Serpent and Scattered?

2. Can you add the ability to make a DAE without numbers like Defenestrated?

I downloaded drop box but all it does when I click on it is 1) give me a pdf for more info, 2) lets me search the internet for contents, or lets me search my computer. How do you actually make a card?
Give me strength to push down the pillars.

1. I'm not sure which version you're using, but I have the V2.0 one from the link above and on the Brigade tab it has 6 different options for brigade alignments:
-Mono
-Dual split horizontally
-Dual split vertically
-Triple split horizontally (like Serpent)
-Triple split vertically (like Temple Dedication)
-Quad

2. Currently I just leave the numbers blank for that, but I'd like to have the icons centered (vertically) so it looks like the actual cards as well.

The file downloads as an .EXE so make sure your computer isn't trying to change it (some computers think it's a virus and try to prevent it from downloading).

Is there options for more backgrounds?
They seem pretty lame as fighters maybe we should challenge them to a dance off or a redemption game

No. just the default with any color, or the promo/UR border

Anyone else having a problem with this program for Mac?  Each time I try to click on something related to the Dropbox zip file for Mac it says "files without an extension can't be previewed." 

I was able to download the card builder on my older Mac but I have a new MacBook Pro and I can't seem to get it to work (I don't recall what I did to make it work on my old computer).
