To alleviate issues with the recent card image removal, we have added a new feature to DN: custom card images. It allows you to host card images on a separate server and input a URL into DN so that DN will render cards with those images.
For liability reasons, DN will not host these images and none of these URLs will be managed by our servers. Please be responsible and only use images for which you have the rights.
To use this feature, follow these steps:
1. Create a directory on your server to use, for example, make a server, and call it mycardpicserver. Host it at http://mycardpicserver.com
2. Name each image with the appropriate card id. Use http://duelingnetwork.com/cardlist for reference. For example, Kuriboh has an id of “2487” and would therefore be stored at "http://mycardpicserver.com/2487”. Note that you only need to provide the illustration portion of the card art, as DN generates the rest of the image using a template. Only include the artwork, don't use the green border of a spell.
3. After you have uploaded your images, use the following URL to get DN to render cards with your images: http://duelingnetwork.com/?card_image_base= .
4. After the =, put your server site, so in our example mycardpicserver.com.
so http://duelingnetwor...rdpicserver.com if you got that site set up with images, would be a DN that has card pics!
Only you can see these pictures, but if you share your URL with somebody else, they will see the same pictures you are hosting!
You may share the URL with others, but be aware that by doing so you are granting permission to others to load the card images from your server.
This feature is currently experimental and we are open to feedback on improving this experience.
