BGG user Kertanos has made a plug in and is looking to get it tested out to see if there is any issues.

In the game manager, choose the local feed and install the game."

Nevermind. I got some decent images from here after I clicked on the card and made it bigger.

Pretty much works perfectly. Only minor issue I saw was Packmaster Kith is always bloodied, but not hard to remember her being a 2/6 or her ability. Other than that, aces! I'm going to be playing this A LOT.  :lol: 

Also if your looking for a good background image for when you play, may I suggest the box art of the game sans text?  ;)

Is there any documentation for this plug in. Need to learn hot keys and keyboard short cuts, or is it all just manual?

Don't know if Tragic is, but I've been working on a Lackey plugin. It's up and running just fine (Lackey is ridiculously easy to work with) but there's some refinement I want to make happen before putting it out there (better resolution and legally censored cards for one). If I don't see somebody push something better by then, I should have it hosted somewhere by right around when the game hits stores.

 

If somebody does come up with a better version... well, it staved off going mad from wanting to play and not having a copy of the game for a few days, at least.

Well I got this last night and familiarized myself with it. Hopefully I can get some games tonight. I just threw together a random mono space marines deck so I could learn the game. Man its hard imagining how a first turn will go between planning for the command and combat phases at the same time while switching off playing cards.

I built a mono Tau deck to test on OCTGN last night and the program was working pretty well. there were some instances where the planets would not go to the victory display or there were 2 initiative tokens out. Other than that it was pretty awesome. 

 

I was getting stomped in by the DE for the first 2-3 planets. I felt like I was finally in a position to really put some hurting down (Vior'la Marksman with Gun Drones as well as a Fire Warrior Strike Team with Gun drones as well with initiative at the planet.) Double AoE destruction but......sadly, my opponent was disconnected and unable to come back. 

 

Anubis, if you are out there. We must have a rematch!

Not at my computer so this is from memory. Once you have downloaded the file you go to your game manager in octgn. There should be a drop down menu and you will select local. Then find the file on your computer and click it. I don't remember if it automatically installs from there.

If will auto install once you select the game from the local game manager.
