This might be nice for various sealed / draft / beginner games?
starter decks?
Yes, I've been starting out from there. Most starters are there; one isn't as yet. (It's new.) And two others are there in that thread, but not in ('shipped with') the 1e Lackey plugin.

I just thought that maybe, for new players and/or other ventures, it may be nice to add those 3 missing decks to Lackey -- for easy playing. (I guess it'll be decided by TPTB, if it's worth the effort.)
And I thought I'd give Eberlems a heads-up, on the off chance that this might make his life easier if he knew about it up-front.

Subject: Playing 1E online with LackeyCCG

How do you mean, "early games"?

It seems to be generally accepted that the v1 TNG starters (3 included in Lackey, currently) and even more so the v2 CoA starters (4 included) provide -- among their own group -- a very much balanced, and positive, beginner's experience.

(FWIW, I played some 6 games with two CoA decks in Vienna, and concurred.)

My proposal (and just that: a proposal) was to update each group to 5 decks, with official or semi-official decks, which go well with the existing ones. Adding [Car] . Details will follow soon.

As said, it's up to TPTB (I guess that's you, Eberlems! :P ) to determine whether it's interesting enough to roll them out with Lackey.

People can add them themselves, if they know how -- I was thinking mostly of newcomers.

Today I played a casual game, with the Klingon v2 (Coming Of Age) starter deck.
The list for this deck is 'shipped' with the Lackey plugin. That list in my Lackey, however, erroneously contained 2x War Games as a dilemma; one of those should be Unorthodox Preservation (according to the official deck PDF; linked to, above).

Is there anywhere (else) where I should/can report this?

I entered Enterprise (53 VP) in my deck, for yesterday. Each time I took it out/draw it, it has the image of 189 VP.
(I re-saved the deck with the 'correct' card multiple times -- and even tried vice versa.)
Why? Can it be fixed so that the other could be played?

There just aren't many cards with 2 or more VP Versions.
Temporal Shifting. I had the same issue with that one!

Great that there's a solution. :) But what happens if a card name gets changed? Will it "disappear" from your deck files (.dek) unnoticed, or would you see a 'blank' card backside? Or... what?
Follow-up: are there any (other) maintenance issues that might make older decks invalid (because cards somehow change)?

Cards that lackey can't find just aren't displayed. There is no warning.
And when you save the deck, that cards is removed.

failed cardnames on txt imports here will place info in the deck description.
Errata can change cardnames and images (and other data), I'm trying to keep the image names.

Cards in .txt have to match cardname.
Cards in .dek have to match cardname, set and image name.

:shock: That sounds very dangerous! :( For people who want to play with a years-old deck.

How to guard against broken decks, then?
Cards in .txt have to match cardname.
Cards in .dek have to match cardname, set and image name.
failed cardnames on txt imports here will place info in the deck description.
So, better also save a .txt file for all decks & iterations, and check number of cards of the .dek file against the uploaded txt file...? :(
Every time?? Cumbersome... :neutral:

What am I missing? How do other people, who want to keep their Lackey deck operational, deal with this?
Errata can change cardnames and images (and other data), I'm trying to keep the image names.
Were there any such changes between December and now? Do you list them somewhere?
