Redemption Plugin for Lackey CCG (out of beta)
« on: January 01, 2015, 03:16:28 PM »

With completion of the auto-update feature and the inclusion of the cards from the Early Church (Phase 2), I am pleased to announce that the Redemption Plugin for Lackey CCG is feature complete and officially out of beta.

Below are details on how to install/update the plugin. I believe these instructions will also work on the iPad version of Lackey CCG, but lacking an iPad I am unable to verify this.


Installing Lackey CCG and the Redemption Plugin

A description of how to install plugins (in general) can be found in the Lackey CCG Installation tutorial listed above. I also have a screenshot (below) that provides a simplified four-step process for installing the Redemption plugin.


Updating the Redemption Plugin
For those of you who already have Lackey CCG and the Redemption plugin installed, upgrading the plugin follows exactly the same process as installing it. You can simply skip to steps 1 and 2 provided above, and start at step 3.

Note that Lackey CCG updates will load images on demand (if necessary) and will only download items if they have changed.





Please let me know if you have any issues or concerns.


Acknowledgements
The primary thanks goes out to Rob Anderson for providing permission to and support for distributing this plugin.

A major shout-out goes to mathman1550, who provided a number of key suggestions and did a great deal of the clean up on the plugin.

I copied a bad file which messed up the handling of Early Church Phase 2 cards that had the same name as cards in previous sets (e.g., Angry Mob). This is fixed.

Update the plugin once again and you should be golden.

Once again let me know if there are issues.

MJB,

I've found a couple cards that don't seem to have the images loading properly.

The hand discard Lost Soul (from the G/H starter deck) and the Anti-Ignore Lost Soul from RoA.

I'll let you know if I discover others.

Thanks. I will look into it.  On the bright side, with the new updater you won;t have to downlaod 170 MB to fix two cards.

Went through the artifacts, dominants and evil enhancements and found a couple more:

Son of God (B deck version) shows the picture for Priestly Crown

Goliath's Spear (Main Limited) shows the image for Herodias

Vain Philosophy (Main Unlimited) shows the image for Missionary Ship

I'll update this list as I find more.

Has anyone tried the iPad version of Lackey for iOS? I'm curious how it works to play Redemption on there. Is it worth spending the $5.99 for the app?

@Gabe, I just got it.  It's not as easy to use as a computer but it definitely cool.  I havnt connected with anyone yet, Jerome and I are going to try when he is available in a couple hours and I'll let you know how that goes.

According to the LackeyCCG site it works for Windows, Mac, Linux, and iOS. So Windows tablets are a slight possibility, but Android (google) tablets are a no-go.

I love this thing, used it for the first time last night.  Thanks for all the great work :)

Couple of notes:
1. For those looking for family-friendly play, be sure to turn off "Enable game chat sounds" under Preferences.  While there is no actual language, at least one phrase begins a word we'd disallow, and the trigger strings are not obvious.
2. While deck-building can be clunky, I actually am a fan.  The only thing I'd like as a T2 player is another identifier for Good, Evil, and Neutral cards for ease of counting and verifying decks.  Not necessary though, the only real thought that came for an improvement.

Thanks :)

Would you be please send me the chat sound that is the issue?  I have just passed along the default sounds that came with the game, but I can modify those.

Unfortunately, I am not sure the deck builder in Lackey can be customized.  I'll look into it. It may require writing a separate deck building app.

Side Note, I have played 3 2p and 2 Multi player type 1 games on the iPad without any major issue. After a couple games i got used to the mechanics and would say i wasn't slower then anyone using a computer.

A COUPLE NOTES
-Lackey does kick you from room if you close out of it on an iPad.  Once this happens you are dependent on the other players to leave that room before you can get back on the server or you must perform a name change in preferences.
-I lost a deck i had built and saved.  I am not sure yet if i did something wrong or if i lost it after closing out of lackey on the iPad.
-when people make notes or use the take control of character function large block letters take up a large portion of the screen.
-Navigating the deck builder and game play mechanics is a little more difficult but using the "left-click, right-click, middle-click" function on the iPad is very useful.

Thanks for the info on the iPad app. I have yet to play my first game in Lackey on my laptop. After I get the hang of it I'll try the iPad app too.

I just updated the Redemption plugin to fix known issues.  Please do a plugin update and a reload to get all changes.

Question, does this have the capability to post custom cards in or do I still have to use RTS for that?
They seem pretty lame as fighters maybe we should challenge them to a dance off or a redemption game

You can use custom cards in Lackey. I was helping one of the playtesters test a card on there a few weeks back.

Yes, we're testing a new set of around 80ish cards that Rob plans to release at Nationals.

Begin speculation and excitement! :)

There is no Android version of the LackeyCCG engine.  Sorry.
