    Custom Adventure Deck request

    Hi Ikael,

    I can create custom decks perfectly but I can't create a deck module in order to display the card image when you drag it on chat window. Would be possible you create a sample custom deck with only one example card, please?

    I would like to understand how I can create such modules and I'm pretty sure that having a "My Custom Adventure Deck" folder (the custom extension, you know) and a custom deck module having only one custom deck with only one card would be very useful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Man, I'd love something like this - I've wanted to do a Savage Worlds game with Tarot Cards rather than playing cards for a while now, and this would be perfect for that...

    Probably not that hard, crack open an adventure deck extension, change image links and text descriptions for the images. Possibly need 2 sets of images, decide (if haven't already) what card's effect is.

    Never cared for most Adventure Decks, so haven't bought them otherwise would offer to pick apart and help.

    I made that before creating this post but it didn’t work.

    As a customer, I’d appreciate very much if some kind of official sample could be available for this addon.

    Welcome to the FG forums!

    See Adventure Deck Documentation.pdf in <FG App data>\docs. Get to <FG app data> by clicking the folder icon in the top left (FGU) or right (FGC) of the FG startup screen. Starting on page 9 of that PDF are instructions on how to add cards.

    Thanks for the tip. It was very helpful. I could find a sample code with only one card on page 15. Unfortunately, weird things happen whenever I try to use a custom deck.

    When I drag a card from the official deck to chat window, I can see a full size card after clicking on the tiny card button. That's what I expected.

    If me (as player) drag a card from a custom deck to chat window, I can see an empty image frame (both as GM and as a player)

    Finally, if I drag a card from a custom deck to chat window, I can see a small size card image.

    Note that I'm using exactly the same image in the custom deck module (extracted from the official deck module)...

    This kind of weird behavior was the reason because of I made this sample module request...

    I reported this issue on February since I wasnt able to understand the logic of the deck modules, but I got no answer:

    https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...h-Custom-Decks

    The pdf is outdated and does not have clear information on what to do, or there is a bug in module decks, dont know, but I was not able to solve it.

    Gon, for your info, I created a deck customizer here, you can create multiple decks and select which decks to use in the configuration panel.

    I checked the video from doswell and he does not speak about modules, which is the problem here. There should be a second part covering the module creation, but he never made it.
