MSE is a tool to make custom sets creation easy. It is extremely flexible and not limited to the "MTG" look and feel.
Below is an example of some of the gorgeous stuff you can achieve with Magic Set Editor (source)
I've been recently in contact with Pichoro, one of the Template devs of MSE who kindly started working on a template for Wagic. In simple words, it allows you to create your custom set through MSE, and MSE will then generate a _cards.dat for you half-automatically.
It also means that if you find a custom set in the MSE format somewhere on the internet, you can quickly convert it to a wagic _cards.dat. Again, this is half-automatic and currently you still have to edit the file to add the "auto=" lines, but it does the most painful work for you.
This is a work in progress, but any feedback you can give will be highly appreciated. In the near future, this could be the best solution to quickly create new cards.
How to use:
You can download MSE here: http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/downloadPichoro wrote: This version will only write a text formatted .dat file output with lots of Wagic formatting. I temporarily disabled the image output because it was annoying for my testing purposes. I'll re-enable it in a future release - when I do, it'll export a folder full of renders with proper names, except for tokens (which will always need to be renamed).
To use it, the user must have MSE installed, and a custom set they want to export. They should open the zip and place the folder inside it in their MSE data folder, commonly located at C:\Program Files\Magic Set Editor 2\data, but it could move depending on where they installed MSE to. The data folder will exist in the same directory as MSE.exe. After they install the export-template, they can export the set in Wagic format, and then open the .dat file that is created to do any further modifications that are necessary.
And here is the template: http://wololo.net/files/wagic/magic-wag ... mplate.zip
If you convert existing mse sets to the Wagic format, please make sure to get the original author's permission before you do so!
Please give it a try, and again thanks in advance for your feedback
