A plugin that allows fans to design their own cards is available on the Strange Eons 3 catalog. After installing Strange Eons, you can download the plugin from the Catalog option in the ToolBox menu (or shift+F12).

I found a good YouTube tutorial on installation and basic usage, thanks to The Kirkwood Runner: https://youtu.be/owf5qNIeZ7A

You can find a guide to installing and using the plugin here: http://susurrosdelbosqueviejo.blogspot.com.es/2014/09/how-to...

Current stable release: beta 17

Strange Eons: http://cgjennings.ca/eons/index.html

Also, for any questions regarding plugin usage or bugs, you can contact me too on Twitter with the nick of HeavyKaragh or by email at heavykaragh at gmail dot com.

Beta 1 released.

Custom sphere and difficulty cards can be created.

Card templates designed to be uploaded directly to PrinterStudio. Users can "cut" the card with a button.


Coments and bugs are welcome.

How do you insert the "willpower"/"attack"/"defense" icons in the box text?

There was these abbreviations between brackets in Strange Eons 2, can't find them anywhere in Strange Eons 3.

Yes, but I'll do it when GeckoTH releases his templates, because I'm not skilled with photo edition.

To say I'm anxious about them is an understatement.

The Lord of the Rings LCG plugin for Strange Eons beta 3 (christmas edition) released

The new version of the plugin is now available here: deleted. To install it manually, just open the all the seext with Strange Eons and restart it. You also NEED to update Strange Eons. Not yet available in the Strange Eons repository.

- New components and variants: Campaign card, Boon and Burden. Function is done, but the template images right now are of pretty low quality. Should be updated to something nice soon.
- Help added in form of tip buttons.
- Uniqueness button. No need to include tags in the name field.
- Keyword field added.
- Collection info field added.
- Icons updated up to The Black Riders.
- Change default copyright and collection info text in preferences.
- Option to show or not advanced controls (tints and some texts)
- Custom bleed margin was removed. Strange Eons has it's own system to add synthetic bleed margin to components. You can use it when in the window opened when exporting or in the deck options.

When loading components from previous versions, check portraits centering. Custom Sphere template has changed too, and can change more it's colour, old designs will look different but lowering the brightness should make them look the same. Also if you added more text than the number to the Collection Number field, you should move it to Collection Info field. To show it properly.

If you find any problem (like when loading old components), please report it.

Anyone willing to translate the plugin to their own languaje contact me through private message.

A WIP update:

- corrected a bug preventing card type texts to show.
- the problem with context bar buttons not showing is fixed.
- draft templates added, you can select this option in the plugin Preferences.
- Campaign and Attachment Boon card templates are in printable quality.

Here: deleted

This update won't be available in the catalog, because I'm adding some more functions to the plugin. A manual installation is required: open Strange Eons, and then the seext files contained in the zip to install them.

If you find any problem post it here.

If you are using Java RE version 8 on your PC, the plugin will through an error:

Uncaught java.util.UnknownFormatConversionException: Conversion = '>'


If that's the case, uninstall Java 8, download Java 7 (from here for Windows usershttp://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/serv...) and install it. It should work properly. If not, report it please.

I'll upload a new version of the plugin working with Java 8 in a few days.

New components:

Nightmare cards(Enemy, Location and Treachery)
Boons (Objective-Ally and Attachment)
Burdens (Objective and Treachery)
Fellowship sphere(Hero, Ally, Event and Attachment)
Presentation(Nightmare) and Preparation (Nightmare)



Installation:

Download the zip file from one of the mirrors above, they are ready for Java 8. Unzip them somewhere.
Open Strange Eons. Go to Toolbox>Manage Plugins. Uninstall every Lord of the Rings file from there.
Close Strange Eons and open it. Drag and drop unziped files on the Strange Eons main window and install all of them.
Close Strange Eons and open it. Try making a new card.


To load cards with custom sphere the option use advanced controls in Edit>Preferences>lotrlcg must be selected.


As with any other WIP version:

Make a safety copy of your old files before loading them with this version, just in case. You may want to check portrait and text adjustments.
If you find any problem (text or images out of place, software errors,...), report here.

That might be because you have mixed versions of the plugin or an older version of Strange Eons.

1. Make sure your Strange Eons version is 3745 (latest). If not, update from Toolbox>Updates menu. If you had to update the program, try again creating the card. If not, continue this list.
2. Uninstall the plugin from the manager (F12), selecting each TheLordOfTheRingsLCG file and pressing uninstall.
3. Restart Strange Eons and install latest version from the catalog (shift+F12).
4. Restart again the program and try creating the card again. If that doesn't work, we'll check it.

*If you want to use a WIP version check the first post and go to the guide for instruction to install it.*
