Bug - cards with shared names in shadowfist
« on: February 01, 2012, 11:24:25 PM »
Noticed a problem recently with the shadowfist plugin.  In two of the sets, there are two cards with the exact same name.  They're meant to be interchangeable - you can play whichever version fits better with your deck.  Right now though, Lackey doesn't seem to be handling cards with the same name correctly.

If version 1 of a card is already in a deck, attempting to also add version 2 instead results in adding additional copies of version 1.  Whichever version was added first in the deck editor is the only one that appears there.

There's a further problem though, when the cards are actually loaded to the table.  At that point it doesn't matter which version you added first to the deck editor - the version that goes to the table is whichever one Lackey likes the best (not sure what the criteria is).  So all but one version of these cards are essentially unplayable - they'll never make it to the table.

All functionally different cards need to have different names. If the name of the card appears to be the same as another card, it needs to be renamed. You can still think of the original name of the card as its "name". As far as Lackey goes, the name of the card is the thing you could say to your friend about your deck, "I have X in my deck." Where X is the name. That is the purpose of a name, and that is its assumed usage.
If the plugin doesn't work like this now, it needs to be fixed.

Thanks, I'll pass that along then.
