I recently purchased Card Vault to help manage my L5R inventory, but the most recent editions have yet to be added.

Instead of complaining about that I decided to download the authoring tool and put them in myself. I'd be happy to upload my data files for general use, but the datafilesrus site requires a username/password that I don't know.

For now I've put the Drums of War file (and the modified .def file) on my own server. I'll be doing Test of Enlightenment as well, and can upload that if desired.

Have you contacted the current data file author about this at all? He's got a bunch of tools that we gave him for automatically processing the L5R data files from source data that AEG has provided in the past. The tools properly handle special things like "Soul of" references, collapsing of "Experienced" cards for proper limits, etc. These are things that are VERY difficult to do manually, and I'm not sure if you've addressed those aspects with the new data files you've created.

It's quite possible that the current author may be happy to pass the mantle over to you, in which case he can provide you with the necessary source material and tools that are currently in his possession. If you are unable to reach the current data file author, let us know and we can step in to try and sort this out.

Thanks, Rob

Having read previous threads on the topic, I assumed the current data file author would remain unresponsive. I posted my files in the belief that something was better than nothing. Other people are welcome to use them, or not. It's not really a big deal to me, as I created the data files for my own use.

Regarding 'Soul of..' issues; Niether Drums of War nor Test of Enlightenment contain any personalities with that trait.

Speaking of L5R files, I've been messing with the Web of Lies files in CV Edit, adding missing promos and fixing some errors. Is there as a default numbering sequence for ID#'s for reprints? How about promo cards with no number but an episode designation?

hey there! I'm just curious to know if the current datafile author for L5R is MIA or not... I've recently just gotten back into the fold of this CCG and while I <3 CV, it is incredibly frustrating to not be able to access the latest sets within the program. Does anyone even know who the current datafile author is? Are there any other folks out there willing to help out update the datafiles, if the author is truly MIA?

I know I'd be willing to help, as long as I can figure out how to do it.
