So this one's interesting...reminds me of how actual Decipher foils are foilized (trim), with the exception that nothing on the actual picture seems foilized (probably because that's tougher to do?). In contrast to other GEMP foils which are more like how the PC has foilized slips.

I dunno, I'm not sure there are many in the "this foilization is cool for me, I don't like the other." Maybe I'm wrong, but I think people either like the effect on GEMP or don't.
(Appreciate you taking the time to generate these, though).

Yeah, I was kinda going for the more standard Decipher foil look with this one. Nothing in the actual picture is foilized because I'm just trying to make a simple overlay to fit more than a single card -- even though alignment is still an issue, so if this went beyond just a few special prize foils or something like that, the foiling would likely need to be baked into the foil card and adjusted slightly for each card to avoid misalignment.

I'm actually not a fan of foils on GEMP, believe it or not. :-D I don't like how they're just a sheen applied to the entire card. Makes it look more like a glass pane placed on top of the card than a foil. That sheen covering the whole card is also more distracting, I feel, than something like just the edges being foiled.

Anyway, it's fun playing around with this (and I might try and print some virtual slips with this effect just to see how it looks).

Light side Rebel/Republic/Jedi Master character foil overlay:

I might just go through all the cards and apply the overlay manually to ensure proper alignment ... Anybody have some podcast recommendations? :lol:

Cool! I'll continue on with this and make overlays for all the card types.

I made mockups of what the effect would look like in the two clients:

Doesn't seem all that distracting to me, while still looking like a foil card.

While you are at it, if you could make it so I can play LSJK in Hyperdrive V, that would be fantastic!

You can add specific coding so only I and jabba123 can play him in the objective if you want :P

I saw the screenshot and was pretty sure I was spectating that game and was questioning if I now have a terrible memory, but then saw LSJK in a deck he shouldn't be in and figured you overlayed them.
