Title: RTS - Full Program and All Updates (Includes I/J Starters and Tin XXVI)
Post by: Gabe on August 14, 2011, 11:14:41 PM
Just getting started with RTS? Download this file (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/97804213/RTS.zip). Once downloaded, unzip it, open the folder and click on RTS.exe to start the program. This is the complete package which contains every card. No updates are needed with this download.

Are you just looking for the newest cards to add to your RTS? You can download this file (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/97804213/2013_RTS_Update.zip) to get the new tins, Laban, Goliath and Daniel promos. Once downloaded, unzip it. Add the pics folder to your existing RTS installation (it's installed in your C:\Program Files\RTS folder by default). Replace your cards.txt file (in the same folder) with the cards.txt from the download.

Do you have questions or problems? Please check Lambo's RTS User Guide (http://www.cactusgamedesign.com/message_boards/rtsonline-play/**the-official-redemption-table-simulator-(rts)-user-guide-**/).

That could be a fun idea. Maybe when I get some free time. I'm excited to try my hand at those 3D cards you showed me. LMK if you think of anything you'd like to see in 3D.

3D cards?  :o

Yeah. MKC had some MTG cards that had several copies of certain cards in a stack (glued or stuck together somehow, not sure exactly) and each card had a different part of the artwork cut out, providing a 3D look. They were pretty sweet.

Yes, in all previous releases there was an error in the spelling of either his card entry or the associated graphic file, I can't recall which.

I'm not the most computer savy person in the world. I have tried this and once I extract the files by right clicking the file, what do I do?  I keep getting an error message and don't know how to fix it. I go to download the files from lambos tutorial but it doesn't resolve the issue. The error says, " Component MSWINSCK.OCX or one of its dependencies not correctly registered:a file is missing or invalid (originated with RTS)." Any help would be appreciated.

Check your other post. I put instructions for you there.
Title: Re: RTS - Full Program and All Updates (Includes 2011 set)
Post by: Lamborghini_diablo on August 16, 2011, 11:30:42 PM
The issue is that you were using a custom background when you compiled the new .zip, but didn't include your custom background. Thus, the program doesn't know what to do at first.
Title: Re: RTS - Full Program and All Updates (Includes 2011 set)
Post by: Gabe on August 16, 2011, 11:37:22 PM
I'm pretty sure that the custom background is in the zip file but the path is probably different.

These are typos reported for the new expansion update. They will be fixed in the next release.

The server that hosted the RTS files is down, maybe permanently. I won't know until I get a chance to work on it next week. If anyone is willing to host the files as a mirror site, I would be glad to work with them to give the community access to the files until I find an alternate solution.

I have some web hosting space through my University that I'd be happy to loan if 200MB or less is enough space (I really dunno how large it is, it has a ton of pics but size of those depends on quality/size/etc.).

Is there any chance of RTS being hosted on the main cactus website...?

I mean, it's used for ROOT, which is officially sanctioned. Why not host it there?

I got RTS from here http://rts.captainofthehost.com/ and I need the newer cards. Will the link be back up soon?

Post by: Gabe on November 19, 2011, 04:34:17 PM
Browarod, there are three zip files I was hosting. The 2011 updates is only 319KB. All updates that don't come with the basic install are 3.5MB. The entire RTS program with all updates is 15MB.

Lambo, having Cactus host these might be a good idea long term if they are willing. For right now I know Rob is really busy and won't have time to help with this.

Red Wing, if you PM your email address I will send you what you need via email for now.

I don't know if anyone would want this, but I can host all the RTS files on Redemption Connect! and maybe create an installer/updater.

I may be the only one but that would be the best course of action to take seeing as I didn't learn how to open a zip file until a year ago.

This is a good idea.

And if RedCon keeps this up, it's going to actually become a viable website.  It already has an easy to use card creator.  Then adding in the home of the only online version (RTS).  Keep up the good work Zardeck :)

Okay, I figured out all the installer things and everything seems to be working fine except that when I open RTS it says, "the cards.txt text file cannot be found!" and there's no play-mat and there are no cards in the deck editor. I'm not the most computer-savvy guy so if you could give me the most specific directions that would be great. Thanks.

This might be a minor note but while playing discovered that "Mistakes Made" from AW does not have numbers, at least from my download. It says that it is a -/- enhancement.  Both the player I was playing against and I saw it.  I know its a 2/4 enh

Also for some reason random cards in my download do not come with some of the pictures, and I was wondering if this happened to anyone else. Cards such as scattered and unholy writ are missing, and I have found that this can give me a slight edge as I can see my opponents unholy writ if it is face down, and I would like to fix this as soon as possible, thanks!

As far as I know there is no way to fix this.  Apparently when the new set was added in, an error in one of the files was also fixed, but this caused old decks to have blank cards on all the cards that were effected by it.

It give me the option to browse different file but I wouldn't know were to start. What do I do now?
