Extra points if someone (besides the creator) can tell me who made the background image. Smile

is there something in the rules against using images? am i not allowed to use card graphics? i could write code to generate them, but i'd rather not. that's a lot of extra work...

No, I was just being cheeky, when I'd spent so long getting the cards drawing all nicely, the thought that you might just use a single image per card seemed unfair Wink

I thought I'd done a set a few years ago, but I can't even find them any more. Since it's the sort of thing it would be useful for iDG to have, are there any artists out there who'd like to take a stab? 52 cards + 2 different jokers + 2 different card backs, at a size that they can be scaled down, royalty-free with an iDev theme?

Just a note, if you are planning on using Python in your project, just distribute the compiled bytecode .pyc files and leave the .py files out, and your program will then be moderately difficult to disassemble. (Difficult enough)

I have a set of playing cards I had downloaded from iDG before the cataclysm. I was going to use them in my 21 entry... but I like OSC's idea of generating them on the fly. Just as an exercise in wasted time... Rasp

That might be a fun contest as well... generate 52 cards

I haven't been able to find any free playing card images at all... Could you post up a link to those assets, GoodDoug? Or could you make your code open source, OSC? I could really use one of them...
Thanks,
Steven

Wow, those are, uh, basic...

The source to my card-drawing routine is in Ruby, so it's probably not of significant use to anyone else... if you still want to see it, I'm sure I can put it up somewhere...

Yep, they're not very pretty... but they were all I could find royalty free when I needed some cards.

Bah, Ruby... Would it be easy to port to Obj-C? I've never seen Ruby code... And, thanks, GoodDoug. I'll use those If I don't find anything prettier...

i found some. check around sf.net for card games and look in their cvs trees. kde has some good card images in its games package, too. i think both of these sets are public domain.

I bzipped them after ripping them out from KPoker, so here they are.
They were GPL'ed, so I don't think there should be any issues...

(BTW I renamed the files a bit, they make more sense now.)
