We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

This is a great tool.  Thank you.   Is there any chance you could set one up that makes some sort of "Base hugger" for marking conditions on models?

I don't think printed base huggers would be very practical, as they would be rather flimsy and you need to cut both inner and outer edge, but I can give it a try. So, 30mm inner diameter, 3mm rim and no picture?

Flimsy won't be an issue, I print cards and counters on photo paper so they are pretty thick.  I think 6mm would be better, no picture but the ability to type onto it like the counters would be great.   Thank you.

I've updated the Malifaux Marker Generator with the option to make either rounded border or flat border (somewhat like what SMOOTHWD40 did), and with the option to select a custom border color.

 

Btw, I have found that printing from Firefox actually gives the best result than Chrome when printing directly. For some reason, Chrome uses rather low resolution when embedding images in the svg file.

Looks like an awesome tool, the sheets I grabbed so far either came up short on something or had it outright missing. WIll put these to good use! Thanks.

Nice tool!

 

I end up getting black insides instead of images, I'm running over Chrome. Are there certain image formats that the tool "prefers" over others for compatability?

 

I found out the problem seemed to be with the file names I had chosen. :)

This looks so amazing!

 

Question; do the markers fit inside the standard bases, or do they overlap the lip?

Everything worked out great! I just resized the images to 75% and they fit perfectly inside the bases. 

 

Thank you so much!! Awesome!

How do I save full sheet as pdf?

I am using Mozilla Firefox and I can only save it as svg. I tried to convert it to pdf via online convertor, but it changed size of markers to almost 35 mm.

I also tried Internet Explorer (and appropriate version of Marker Generator) and I can save it as svg, bmp or png. Where do I go from there?

Or should I just save it as svg? I want to print it on a thick coated paper in copy center.

 

Thank you

For the incompetant.

 

How do you place an image into the marker in such a way as it fills the borders cleanly?

 

I'm trying to use a saved photo from the web and I end up with a small rectangle within the larger circle with a border to each side. I'm not real good with these tools, what (if any) is the fix?

I've been experimenting some more with javascript, and have made a new version with sliders for positioning and zooming the image. This version can be used for images that are not square. (Note: If the image is square and not zoomed, the position cannot be changed. I probably should add some visual feedback for sliders that cannot be used...)

What do you think?

 

 

By the way, while experimenting I found that if you include several large images, the browser might crash when opening full sheet  :huh: !

There seems to be a rather low (and browser depended) byte size limit for the full sheet svg file (around 1-2 MB). For me this limit was reached with Chrome when including 3-4 images with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. So don't do that! 300 x 300 pixel images (or similar) should be sufficient for printing.

 

@Sancho: What size should these markers be? Should they still include the border with the text?

For some reason when I try to print the svg page all I get is the outlines and a black space in the middle.  Anyone know how to fix this?

 

I'm using Chrome
