Small card/miniature image displayed next to cursor

April 12, 2009

I have added a small feature that can be nice and handy for lists of cards. When you place your cursor over the name of a card, a small image of the card (when available) appears next to your cursor. This way you can identify the card better without having to click on it to open its own page. This new behavior is available in every list of cards: cards in a set, results of a card search, haves and wants of any user, etc.
Of course, the same works for miniatures at Miniature Trading and CambiaMiniaturas.com

Automatic image generation for dream cards

April 12, 2009

I have added the option, when creating Dream Cards, to generate the corresponding image for the card with the provided data. It effectively generates a “card scan” of the virtual cards.

I have made it initially only for Magic and Yu-Gi-Oh!, as it takes some time and effort to create the templates for each card type and card elements. I will try and add it for more games if people request it a lot.
