Re: The D'Artagnan Collection

Feel free to leave comments/feedback.

I've actually had trouble getting the custom music in my themes to work on the PSP version, whereas it works fine on Tacoghandi's PC mod. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks!

I love these icons. Any way to clean them up so they are not so ragged on the edges? I was trying to do this myself and with others but we couldn't quite do this a few months back.

As far as the PSP sound goes, make sure your OPTIONS Menu (Red mana icon in game) has the sound volume turned up. If that is not it, you may have a compression problem with the music files. I have no idea how to fix that type of thing.

It is all looking good.

Have you removed all the id tags from the sound files.

I know that causes problems.

Bump for a revision of this which doesn't work for me.

The ragged edges were intentional, to fit in with the M15 scratched logo... also, were done to try to camouflage the pixels a little, as I could not get good compression with Paint.NET. It kept coming out kinda pixelly or blurry (if I recall, I included a slightly smoother, but blurrier, version of the icons in the Customise folder).

What exactly isn't working for you, KF1? If you're using that edited menuicons.png you posted, it's 328x327, with an opaque black background, which is not how menuicons.png should be. menuicons.png should be 252x72, with a transparent background (unless you want black borders around your menu icons and mana symbols). For custom menu icons/mana symbols, I'd recommend using the default Wagic menuicons.png as a template, double its size (so that when you shrink it down again, the pixels are smoother), and put new menuicons on a new layer. Then, when you're done, delete/hide the template layer, shrink down your menuicons to the right size, and Save As png.

I'll look into smoother icons when I have some time, probably share my source files, too, which includes (if I remember rightly) a double-resolution MI5 menuicons Paint.NET project file. Also got another theme to finish and submit, too :) (hint: TLOTR preview in the MI5 theme)

Wondering... is the custom music in the themes working for anyone on the PSP version of Wagic? (has never worked for me; pretty sure I must have messed with the sound options, as you recommended, but will double-check) Funnily enough, the custom music works perfectly on Tacoghandi's PC mod...

Maybe I've been adding too many cards from Taco's mod into my vanilla 0.18.6 PSP Wagic... the Thicker Than Water campaign has started crashing the PSP if I try to start it, whereas it worked perfectly before.

PS Something that seems to have made Wagic work faster/more stably for me, though, is using qwikrazor87's PSPBPacker v3 to unlock more RAM on the Wagic EBOOT. Now, rather than lag-glitching after a game or two, it works fine, but may have a blue screen of death unpredictably.

First of the 2016 updates: (This is also be posted on the /Talk forums, http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f= ... 80#p406080
[RELEASE] The Lord of the Rings (TLOTR) Wagic theme

Command the heroic (or not-so-heroic) forces of JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth, in the best digital adaptation of the best fantasy trading card game. Mana? Nay, here the currency is Rings, Eyes, Runes, Elven leaves and the White Hand of Saruman. This theme comes complete with quite a lot of Middle Earth battlefield backdrops. Check them out as different styles within the theme.

DOWNLOAD: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B95M6 ... 0tQaDk4YTg (Note: I'll be updating the download links on the previous themes to Google Drive, too.)

INSTALLATION: Extract the download package, and compare the folder structure to your Wagic installation. Copy the theme folder (called "TLOTR") to <WTH/User/themes>. Start Wagic; if installed correctly, the theme will appear in Options/User/Theme. Cycle through the available themes until you find it, select it, then save and exit to main menu. You may need to restart Wagic to ensure that the theme has taken effect.

Live long and prosper!

Whoa, looks like my screenshots are a little large for these forums. Sorry about that, folks!
hmmm... I can't really be bothered to go and reshoot them on a PSP or resize them.

How about you guys do me a favour, save me the trouble, and download the themes and try them out yourselves? You won't regret it ;)

Why is it called "Pwkr"? I just wanted a different, unique spelling.

PS In the latest screenshots, I am using Tacoghandi's amazing Wagic PC mod. I highly recommend it!
