First, cards aren't "facedown" in zones really. If you flip a card in your hand over so you can drop it face down to the table, the card isn't really face down while it is in your hand.
Facedown is only an effect for a card on the table. Zones, not specific cards in zones, are either visible to a particular player or not.

So are you reporting a bug that a shared deck is visible when a game is saved, but invisible when the save is loaded? Is this a minor refresh bug? (If you click a different zone and then the zone in question again, will this appear as expected?)

I started doing it, but a number of things I wasn't expecting started popping up. I don't want to release it with it not working well because a ton of people will get frustrated.

For an example of an unexpected added difficulty, with with folders, people would expect to be able to see a folder and a file adjacent to each other in the file browser and click and drag the file into the folder. And people would expect a way to click a drag a file from a folder to its parent directory.

I will wait until I have figured out all of the issues and I'm not sure how long that will take. I have a number of other things that I think are more important to fix/add first. In the interim, I suggest a deck naming scheme that helps.
What commands do you think exist but are missing?
You should be able to configure things in your plugininfo.txt. You should be able to set the default zone visibility. Post your plugininfo.txt.
I need to investigate this further.
This sounds like it's an issue with your operating system and not a lackey issue. Lackey needs to be run from a place where it can write to or issues like this will occur. Try running as admin or do a Google search for your issue.

Trevor, which button and combination does this, and is it different in different zones?
Watch the game play video tutorial. starts at 3:20.
That shows where the buttons will appear. And they appear WHILE you are dragging a card. Touch the buttons that appear to toggle flipping or rotating.
Post the actual file you are trying to send and I will take a look.

The server will be back online around 3:30 pm EST.
Ipad has buttons that appear at the bottom when you are moving a card that let you do this. Nothing you need to add specifically for the iPad to do this.
You didn't really ask a clear question.
Should be fixed now.
Avatar image files need to be smallish. They should be 100x100, but file size is what is what lackey checks. I think its 30KB, which should be fine for a 100x100 jpg. You can still use other avatar images, but they just won't automatically send to other players.

They are saving now. I changed something on my PC.
What turned out to be the problem? I get reports like this often and I'm not sure what to tell people since it doesn't seem to be a problem with lackey.

I have to run Lackey as Admin, or it wont save anything.
I don't know what odd setting you have with your operating system, but as far as I know there is nothing I can do with Lackey to ameliorate that. I guess I could give better error messages like "unable to save deck".

i'm writing to ask again to make the plugins name visible to all connected to the server: it is very frustrating to cycle all the times the games you have installed to see if anyone else connected has loaded it, in addition to the facts that by the time time about 80% of people logged in play magic (instead of paying for the workstation) and when you switch plugins you automatically got disconnected from the server for about 1 minute for every plugin change
Snoogy is right in that as long as you have the plugin installed, you can see people on the server with that plugin. The decision to conceal plugins that you don't have installed was a frequent request. A lot of different companies use lackey to playtest games before they see print and they didn't want information about their project released before they were ready to release it.

And it shouldn't take you a minute to relog into the server. The only reason that would happen is if you disconnect in an unusual way and you need to way for the time-out to disconnect you. If switching plugins causes you to not log out normally, please confirm this for certain and then report it to me. If that is indeed the case, you can manually disconnect from the server before switching plugins (by hitting the x button on the server tab among other ways). But as I said, you can see players and games of plugins you don't have loaded as long as you do have them installed.

I understand that seeing the different games you don't have is a nice way to find out about new plugins, and I weighed that against the pros of the current system. There are other things you can do too, including putting games in your player profile note, or talking in the server chat.
