Wagic FAQ

Heads up: Horizon Forbidden West available for Preorder on Amazon: PS5 - PS4 (affiliate link)

What is Wagic?

Wagic is an heroic fantasy collectible trading card game (available on many platforms, check the download page for details). In Wagic, you play as a wizard against the CPU with your army of minions. You start the game with a small collection of cards (symbolizing creatures and spells), and as you win battles against the AI, you earn credits that allow you to buy more cards and build more powerful decks. As you play, you unlock cards and new game modes, so Wagic is much more than a simple card simulation.
Wagic features several thousands of cards in the official release,but if that’s not enough for you, it is highly customizable and allows to create your own cards and mods. Oh, and Wagic is free and open source.

Why can’t I buy (insert here name of a set) boosters and starters in the shop?

The shop sells starters and boosters only for sets that have at least 80 playable cards. Additionally, you need to unlock expansions before they are available in the shop

I can only buy boosters and cards from 5ED in the shop, what’s going on?

You need to unlock the other expansions before you can access them in the shop

How do I unlock expansions?

This happens randomly as you win games against the AI

Does Wagic handle all “Magic The Gathering” cards?

No. Wagic does rules enforcement, so for some MTG cards, some code is necessary before you can play them in Wagic

Is there a list of cards I can use in Wagic?

The List of cards included in the latest Wagic release can be found here. For user-created sets, kindly ask the author. For the “core” version of Wagic, you can also open the “mtg.txt” files in Res/sets/primitives/ with a text editor to see what cards are available.

Can I create my own cards/Add some cards I like?

Yes, see this article

Can you add my favorite card to the game? I badly need it to reproduce my real life Deck in Wagic!

Sorry, we don’t accept cards requests at the moment. There might be occasional events in which I’ll consider donators’ requests for cards (this happened once) but no promise on that. Otherwise if you know C++ you can add it yourself, we are always looking for skilled developers

The game has no card pictures, it’s ugly! where do I get the pictures?

We received a Cease and Desist order from Wizards of the Coast’s lawyers, asking us not to distribute copyrighted content anymore. The game still allows you to use card pictures of course, but you have to use your own, or find them by yourselves. Google is your friend.

How can I help?

We are constantly looking for C++ developers, testers, card creators, designers, donators… drop by the forum and say hello!

I don’t have a PSP, is there a windows version?

Yes, check the download section 🙂

How do I unlock the Momir Basic mode?

You have to win a game with exactly 8 lands in your control

How do I unlock the Difficult mode?

You have to have at least 10 Opponents marked as “easy”, and win an extra game. At that point, the difficult mode will be unlocked, and you can activate it in the options menu.

How do I unlock the Evil Twin mode?

You have to win a game,while having exactly the same number of cards in play as your opponent

How do I unlock the Random Deck mode?

You have to win a game, in difficult mode, with 20 life or more

There is a bug in fireball, I can choose targets but then the fireball does nothing

Once you’ve chosen your targets, you have to click on the fireball card again

I get a black screen when I try to run Wagic, then the PSP turns off

The game works, it’s tested on a fair amount of PSPs before and after each release. People who will tell you the opposite are just bitter for some reason. But a few reports tend to show that Wagic refuses to start in some rare conditions.
If Wagic crashes at startup, try the following steps:
– Download the latest version from the download page, erase any previous version of Wagic you had on your memory stick, and make a fresh install again. Make sure you install all the folders and subfolders correctly.
– If nothing helps, try to see This topic on the forums.

I have more questions but this FAQ doesn’t answer them

    Hello wololo team.
    First I would like to thank you for having created wagic, because I like to play Magic, and in psp becomes practical xD.
    But one day I tried to add my own cards on wagic with the help of your tutorial to create the parameters of the letters but had great difficulty and could not =[.

    I wonder if you could make available for download
    the parameters of all the letters to be written to the file _cards.DAT so I could use them as reference to create my own, or just show me how are the parameters
    “target =” and “self =” the card: Merrow Commerce.

    or just wonder if you could you please show me how do I get a creature with this passive ability: “At the end of each opponent’s turn, tap all permanents he or she controls.” work in wagic.

    thank you for your attention and sorry for any inconvenience

  2. I wish to express my appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this particular difficulty. Just after looking through the the net and coming across ideas which were not powerful, I believed my entire life was gone. Existing without the presence of approaches to the issues you have resolved by means of your blog post is a crucial case, as well as ones that could have adversely damaged my entire career if I had not discovered your site. Your capability and kindness in touching all the details was invaluable. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a point like this. It’s possible to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the reliable and result oriented guide. I will not think twice to propose your web sites to anybody who ought to have care about this subject matter.

    Just curious if there is anything I can do to help. I can program a bit in C# and am making a game for the iPhone via Unity3D.

    Let me know if there is something I can do or if not, what skills you’re looking for in particular.

      Hi. Wagic is mostly written in C++, so your experience in C# should be helpful.

      The best way for programmers to help us is to get the sources and compile the game, following the instructions at: http://wololo.net/miki/index.php/Wagic/Compiling .
      Once you’ve done that, just do whatever you want, add some features to the game, fix a bug… whatever you’d like to see, really. You can then contact me with a patch, and we’ll add you the rights to submit to the SVN 🙂

    Guys as a tip, do not try to run the Worldgorger Dragon + animate dead combo xD It crashes the app lol

  8. CaptainRoadkill says:

    Wow. I can’t even imagine how hard it must be to program AI for a game with such dynamic rules. Also, I keep accidentally casting all my mana on draw phase and then it dissapears in main phase! Was that on purpose or can you make it so mana only dissapears on end phase?

  9. GoatQueen says:

    whenever an opponent does ANYTHING it keeps asking if i want to interrupt and even if i press no it does it anyways and i cant figure out how to stop that (playing on windows 8.1)
