FAQ

Q: All my decks disappeared, where did they go?
A: If you cleared your cookies you will lose your account. If you saved your private ID you can restore it, go to the settings page for more info.

Q: Where are the draft generation and playtesting features?
A: They aren't available yet on this iteration of the site. I know a lot of people use those features frequently, and I'll be trying my hardest to release then as soon as possible. I'm sorry for the trouble this may cause.

Q: Where can I see announcement or ask questions about the site?
A: Check out the discord, or you can still email me at frogtownmatt@gmail.com.

Q: When will the cards from the new set be added?
A: New cards won't be added until they are available on scryfall.com. If the new cards are there and still aren't visible then that means I just haven't updated the site yet, shoot me an email and I'll get to it ASAP.

Q: That's what you said last time, and it was like several months before you added the new cards?
A: My bad. I ran into issues with my previous card data and image sources, and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to fix. I've switched data sources and automated a lot of the work I used to do manually, so I shouldn't hit the same issues again.

Q: What is this site, and where did the old site go?
A: All of your decks and data are still here, it just got a facelift. I use this site as a place to improve my development, and that means it gets rewritten from scratch when I want to learn a new web technology. I realize that can be inconvenient if you liked the previous iteration, and I'm sorry if the new one is missing anything. I appreciate any feedback you have that could make it better, please email me if you have any thoughts.

Q: What is Tabletop Simulator and how do I use my exported decks?
A: Tabletop Simulator is a game you can find on steam. It doesn't provide any rules enforcement, but it is a great way to play magic. Save your generated decks to Documents\My Games\Tabletop Simulator\Saves\Saved Objects. In game you can click Objects at the top of the screen, choose Saved Objects, and then click your deck.

Q: I have a Mac, why does the site look so wierd?
A: Because I don't have a Mac and can't test it properly :(. Shoot me an email so I know about it and maybe fix it.

Q: What data source did you switch to?
A: I switched to Scryfall for all of the card data and images. The team there is dedicated to providing a great service and really do. The only reason I didn't switch to Scryfall earlier is because their bulk data api is hard to work with. I spent some time recently making a data processing utility that makes it easy for me to consume it, you're welcome to use it in your own projects if your interested. Alternatively you can check out MTGJson, which is the source of data I used to use. It doesn't work for me anymore, but there's a good chance it meets your needs.

Browser Warning

IE and Edge have very poor performance with drag and drop interfaces, as well as very slow response times when apps make frequent server requests. These are two features Frogtown uses extensively, it is recommended you use a different browser when editing decks.

Version Warning

Frogtown makes heavy use of the relatively new browser feature called "grid display" so it may not render properly on your browser. Please update your browser to use Frogtown as intended.
