    Re: Gentlemen, take a look at Cockatrice, the new MWS

    I tried to download the sourcecode yesterday to update the spanish translation and find some problems. I post them in the Cockatrice forum.

    Another players in Spain find the same error trying to connect to play.

    Re: Gentlemen, take a look at Cockatrice, the new MWS

    I would like to report a bug. For some reason the image on the Jotun Grunt card in the cockatrice program does not seem to want to load. The same appears to be true of the Jotun Owl Keeper card. I don't know why this is happening, because I just tried searching for these cards using Gatherer, and couldn't find them using the word Jotun, but could find them using the word Jötun so apparently the Cockatrice wording is correct and that is my only guess as to why the pic won't load.

    Could someone tell me how to play a particular basic land from a particular set?
    Because I find the standard basic lands (M10) hard to find in my library.

    Again, it's time for a new release. As usual, the client can be downloaded on the Download page.
    Since it's been a long time since the last release, there have been a couple of changes:
    - French and Japanese translation
    - some visual improvements
    - smoother picture caching
    - cards in zone views can be selected
    - removed chat rooms since they were not used, implemented play rooms instead
    - changing the controller of cards works
    - removed economical table layout, implemented stacking instead
    - and a long list of minor fixes, see for yourself.

    Attention: The main game server has moved to another IP address. A DNS update is taking place, but it might take a day or two to finish. In the meantime, if you cannot reach the new server via its DNS name, please use this address: 78.47.181.111

    Could someone tell me how to play a particular basic land from a particular set?
    With the automatic picture downloader, it's not possible because it just loads the most recent picture. This will be changed sometime, however.

    Hold down shift while playing the card.

    Re: Gentlemen, take a look at Cockatrice, the new MWS

    I registered just before posting this and did a few games. I am actually really impressed by the programme and do highly recommend it to everybody. MWS always kind of annoyed me due to the whole download thing (pics) an so on. Also this seems to be alot more stable.
    Keep up the good work mbruker!

    This is an excellent program. I have a small screen and it does a lot more to help economize on space. The stability of it is also excellent. I'm really not sure what you guys did but it stays up forever compared to MWS.

    Are there any HOWTOs for installing this on Ubuntu 8.04? I'm having a lot of trouble updating my system just to compile the code, and I'm not a techy, so I don't have a clue either.

    Re: Gentlemen, take a look at Cockatrice, the new MWS

    I think Cockatrice will not work with Qt 4.4. It would be best to have at least 4.6. Ubuntu 8.04 didn't come with a recent enough Qt version when I last checked, but I don't know about their release style, so I can't tell exactly.
    You need at least these packages: make, g++, libqt4-dev (at least that's how they're called in Debian, I guess it shouldn't make much of a difference).
    Change to the cockatrice directory and execute: lrelease cockatrice.pro; qmake; make
    Then do the same for oracle.

    Game menu -> Player menu -> Sideboard -> View
    In the next release, there will be a shortcut for that.

    I'm digging this program! Much better than MWS on my system.

    When should I expect MBS to be in my card database? Wasn't able to find any "update database" option...

    I've played about ten games so far and I am very happy with this program. Some of pictures don't load for some reason, but it's fast and easy to use.

    Can it handle the pictures I already got for MWS? If so, I'll try it.

    Also, can it handle .mwdeck?
    If you fail to explain the reason behind your choice, technically, it's the wrong choice.
