I've played a bit with Tabletop Simulator, a physics sandbox software from Berserk Games (http://berserk-games.com/tabletop-simulator/), used for testing and playing many board and card games, in this post you can find some simple instructions for loading in TTS a deck of cards created with nanDECK.
In TTS, a deck can contain max 69 cards, plus one that is shown when a card is hidden, organized in a single image file (seven rows of ten cards each). Note: after having created them, you can combine several decks into a single one, if you need more than 69 cards.
For an example, I've prepared a special deck with five suites (13 x 5 = 65 cards), and drawn a black placeholder in position 70. This is the script:
Note: the DISPLAY directive in the last line creates the single image and save it to the disk (with deck.png name).
This is the image:
With another script I've created an image for the back of the cards (with back.png name):
TTS need that all the image files are loaded on the Internet, so I've used imgur.com (there are other methods, you can use the one you find suitable).
If you want to use them, these are the URLs:
From TTS, I choose an empty table, then Host -> Chest -> Cards -> Custom, and fill in the form, with the URL from imgur.com:
Note that I've set the slider to 65 cards. After a click on Import, I have my deck and can draw some cards:
You can save the deck (right-click and "Save to Chest") and re-use it when you need it (Host -> Chest -> Saved Objects).
If you have some questions, feel free to ask.
