For nearly a year, I've been working on a tool for indie board and card game developers to easily create components for printing with on-demand publishers like The Game Crafter. I've recently released v1.0, completely free and open source. I'd love to get some feedback on bug issues, usability, and new features.

EDIT: I have an email set up specifically for questions and feedback: cardeditor.feedback@gmail.com

Windows... sigh

Hey ninjaneer,

Unfortunately Windows won't let me run your program... silly windows.

Scratch that... I was just able to start up the program! Yes! I'll let you know what I think tomorrow!

Scratch that... I couldn't wait until tomorrow so I sent you an email. :)

New version doesn't load

Version 1.1.2 doesn't seem to want to run on my Windows. Version 1.1.1 is okay; I downloaded it and extracted the file and the program seems to be working correctly.

Don't know why 1.1.2 doesn't seem to want to run?!

Is there are startup log that I can check to see if it is bailing out after calling some library or some other component that I may not have on my Windows???

Can I run version 1.1.2 in a debug mode? Or produce some kind of log file??

I was trying out the layouts and it looks pretty neat so far.

Version 1.1.2 is working for me!

Hooray! Version 1.1.2 is working for me! I am running Windows 10. I didn't uninstall Version 1.1.1 and am using the files generated with Version 1.1.1.

I can definitely see using this! I'll keep testing!

I'm sorry you're having trouble with v1.1.2. There is a logging system in place, but unfortunately at the moment it does not output the logs to file. I will add that as a feature request and include it in a future release. In the meantime, you could try downloading Visual Studio Community Edition and build the code yourself. I don't mean to brush off your issue, but it will likely be the fastest way to track down your issue.

The release zip should have everything you need, though just to make sure, try downloading .NET v4.5.2, available at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42642. Please let me know if that solves your problem, so I can include an installer with future releases. Maybe I should look into making an actual installer for Card Editor.

Also, sorry for the delay in response, I only check these forums every so often. The quickest way to get my attention is to send an email to cardeditor.feedback@gmail.com.

Thanks for your interest and support!

v1.2.0 in progress

After taking a break, I have begun work on v1.2.0. This version will support undo/redo stacks for Layouts. I'm also hoping to add simple deck compositions and basic print-and-play support, though this may come in a later version.

So far so good!

Downloaded v1.2.0 and it works with my previously designed cards. :)

I'll keep you posted!

It might be a bit sparse for a while as I do my Kickstarter launch... (shameless plug)

Re: So far so good!

In general, you can assume that any version of Card Editor will support data from earlier versions, either directly or by converting them to the correct format. If there is ever a break in backwards compatibility, it will appear in the release notes (README.md)
