Vintage Masters Original Art Swap – Magic Online Patch

Share Button

This patch is no longer being distributed, it contained images which violated WotC’s intellectual property rights.  I apologize for my transgressions. -Marcel

I am working on a tutorial on how to custom the card art for any card on Magic Online, it should be live before the new year at: http://brainstormbrewery.com/modo-art/


Change the art for MODO Holiday Cube back to the original artwork, see the Power 9 in their true glory. This file reverts all “modernized” artwork back to it’s first printing. Truly a beautiful thing.  UPDATED Version 1.1 – 6/13

 

Power New

 

By @MarcelMTG co-host of the Brainstorm Brewery podcast

 

**** To restore default art settings launch “Kicker.exe” and select “Repair” on the main screen ****

**** This works with Version 3 of MODO & the Beta Version, thanks to Jonas Hellström aka @Jonas_Hellstrm ****

 

Download the original art for every card that has new art for Vintage Master. Play with the Power 9 how they were intended, bring back the nostalgic feelings of playing with iconic cards in their original glory.  This simple patch is easy to apply and easy to remove if you don’t like the changes.

 

 

Myth OG

 

 

Included is a “skin” that switches Modern card frames to look like old border cards. Due to how the MODO client works the text boxes and art window have been adjusted to fit the Modern text alignment.

Because Modern cards use black text instead of white, card names & card types can be difficult to read on darker card frames i.e Black and Artifacts. The skin also swaps dual lands so they look like the original dual with the two color text box.

    Does the frame work with V4? I was able to get the photo swap to work but can’t figure out the frame.
