Card Creator

I assume you are talking about the Cardcreator?
Webms arent possible, its a video format and not an image, would be too much work to write a converter its faster if you convert it to a gif with some tools.
But gif files should work! Maybe try another gif or add me in skype and show me what you are doing.
*What does "locks up" mean?"


I just installed a windows 10 system on another pc, i will look what its wrong with the resizing.
Maybe this zoom button causes the problem?

the sizing issue i was having was the whole program being too big on my screen, especially the card creator, it was huge and would go back to that size after changing any options:

Though i think ive figured out the sizing issue :') i didn't realise it but my computer defaults to everything being 25% larger, probably because im on a laptop :'), once i turn that down to 100% the problem is fixed :D

the .gif issue i'm having is whenever I try to use a gif in the card creator that's around roughly 3mb or larger, the whole application stops responding (completely locks up) when i try to save the card. i've been having to end its process just to close it.

Also the card manager wont let me edit the cards that i have managed to put gifs on, when i click edit nothing happens, yet the other cards work fine.

Card Creator

Ahh i think i found the problem, the loading algorithm for Gif files is realy slow because Gif metadata is restricted to 254 byteblocks i had to split the file into blocks and when you load a realy big file the program has to iterate over the file and put all blocks together to recreate the original image.
Solution: Its still working, just give it a minute to load (depending on how fast your computer is).

I know its bad to wait a minute to edit a gif card and i will improve GIF loading in one of the next versions, so they load faster, or atleast add a bar which displays the % value, so you know it is still loading.

Edit:
Quick Fix: It will use the gif file from the images folder instead of loading the metafile (if there is one), in the next version. (Much faster this way)
-Maybe i could also add some multithreading to speed up the metafile creation / loading.

Card Creator

I can see that something went wrong in the card creation process there is no image meta data stored.
I was able to reproduce this error, sometimes it works, sometimes not. Looks like the image size plays a role... will take some time to find the error.

I seem to be encountering issues when I try to save a card after changing the set number. The program makes a 0 kb png file with the correct title and then locks up. Albeit intermittently. Thankfully, the original still maintains the changes and isn't deleted.

Did you move the image you used away from the place you loaded it before you saved the card?
