OK.

I dont feel like trying to learn about Alpha Channels right now. I will need to do that before I can use my own text/pips. In the meantime, I figured I would post a set of card faces and backs for free.

I would be glad to make a few more sets of faces/backs, for a few small donations to my almost non-existent stars account.


*Make a copy of C:\Program Files\PokerStars\Gx\chips&deck\deck\simple before you begin changing image files.

* I made these using the "Waffle " Simple deck on stars. Each of these different sized cardbase.bmp has to go in the appropriate sub-directory of: C:\Program Files\PokerStars\Gx\chips&deck\deck\simple.


Stars-5.4-DFG.zip

Screengrab of the ZIP contents:

Any time i launch PS, the auto update crush your job and i can't use your nice decks

any tip to use personnal backs cards ?

Re: Pokerstars Theme (free]

Go to your PokerStars folder and create a shortcut to the one named PokerStars. Drag and use that to log in. That one does not do the update every time. The shortcut currently on your desktop is pointed at PokerStarsUpdate.

Unfortunately the card changes don't work if placed inside the XThemes folder or this would not be a problem.

Re: Pokerstars Theme (free]

90% of their updates are not critical to your play. IF at some time there is a critical update it will not allow you to log in successfully through the path I just gave you. Also you will see a few threads started here along those lines people saying they can't log in, etc. At that time you will have to do the update and re-do the cards. Again tho, those types of larger updates dont happen often. If I remember correctly, I went over a year without needing to do an update.

Re: Pokerstars Theme (free]

Still haven't sorted out this alpha-channel stuff. I will figure it out - sooner or later.

This is what I am using at the moment. My 10.8 backs I just made, and the font I stole from BarNuthin's PhattySimilar deck.

Re: Pokerstars Theme (free]

Everlong,

In your original Everlong sober theme w/the brown slider, I have issues with the name boxes not being large enough. They often cut off the first/last letters of some really long names. Is this something you're aware of, or something that's been reported before?

I absolutely love the theme - thanks for your work on this!

I am not 100% sure (but close enough) that I never changed the width of the name/stack boxes. Why don't you quickly switch to a default theme next time this happens to see if you have the same problem there with name width...

Re: Pokerstars Theme (free]

Here's my attempt at card mods, still some tweaking to do, like making the card ranks a little more centered.(hope you don't mind me posting it here Everlong)



Is there a way to make the fonts and cards bigger when table are sized down?
How did you get rid of the circles next to the names, you started to mod from the simplified themes or you made them yourself by deleting the files that are making the circles (i have seen this technique in another thread)?

I doubt I need to look out. Those are my cards, and BarNuthin's font. He didn't "make" one bit of that card mod himself. He is using the font from BarNuthins PhattySimilar deck (without giving proper credit), and he ported one of my card faces (thanks for the credit ).

The problem isnt the pips being not centered, the issue is the font not being centered for those card faces. BarNuthin makes oversized cards/font. The deck of his you took the fonts from, didnt have pips on the face. BarNuthin di'dnt have to worry about centering the big text. The font has to be repositioned (and masked), for all 7 of the text sizes.

Next time at least have the decency to say who made all the original images, that you were able to Port.

************************************************** ************************************************** ******

Here is a complete deck.

This will be my donation of one free deck, until I can learn how to make my own text for the decks. Once I make my own set of text the way I like, I will re-post the deck.

I stole the font (Advertiser Gothic) from BarNuthin's Phatty Similar deck. I had to resize for the "0" size, but otherwise the text was all made by BarNuthin of PSThemes.com.

Thank you to BarNuthin for all of your help and assistance. And of course for all the great PStars mod's.

The card faces are my 5.4-DFG.

Re: Pokerstars Theme (free]

I don't know what you do for a living (prolly flipping burgers or some such ) fozzy, but something, i don't know what, probably just a gut feeling tells me you should perhaps consider taking a peak at a career in graphic design.

if you're going to design a card deck, at least try to come up with one that isn't already made by someone else

Sure the fonts comes from the BarNuthing Phattysimilar deck and the original design was taken from a deck i found on a wiki about FT card mods, using the pips someone shared over these forum, i didn't create them for sure but port them (can't remember who it was sorry, that was saying feel free to use them...)
So all my apologies.

On a side note you are taking this a tad too seriously, i didn't have the intention to sell those or anything, i made them solely for personnal use so no need to be aggressive.
I will contact a mod of the section to have my post removed so you won't have the feeling that i'm trying to steal both of you.

LOL

Now you are the one over-reacting.

You dont need to remove your post. You dont even need to say who's images you are using/copying if you cant remember. Just at least mention that you are borrowing others previous work/images. It just came across as a bit dis-respectful. I was trying to make light of the fact, that they looked almost exactly like my cards.
