It is the same but all automated through a Windows GUI plus it downloads more minis (Pathfinder).

--------------------------

I'm lazy, so I automated making tokens of the D&D mini images from WoTC.

I automated the download of the images including renaming some of the images to more meaningful names (i.e., not 01.jpg, 02.jpg, etc.) using a VBScript and some bat files to rename. And I automated the resizing of the images (the cool part!).

The script not only resizes the images (keeping aspect ratio) but changes to PNG format, makes the background transparent, and centers the image in a square canvas of the size selected. For example, if you say size 50, all images are resized to 50x50. If an image is tall, it resizes by height down to 50 (keeping aspect ratio) then makes the canvas 50 wide. If a wide image, sizes to 50 wide, then makes canvas 50 tall. Image is centered. The original image is not lost.

For the resizing, I use ImageMagick (free download from www.imagemagick.org (http://www.imagemagick.org)).

Takes less than 10 minutes on my computer for all 1,168 images. You can do a lot more if desired (like adding borders, etc.) The ImageMagick documentation has all the options. Also, should work on other images as well. (For example, I think it should work if you have bought the Counter Collection from Fiery Dragon. Could use same principles to resize and make background transparent.)

I attached a couple random samples of 50x50 and 100x100. *Sorry, removed images to make sure I am not violating any copyright laws* But the images/tokens look really good (to me anyway.)

Attaching scripts here. I did not realize I could post a .zip file.

For everyone who emailed, I cannot email the scripts because AOL and gmail will not allow the attachment since they are scripts for security. (Would not go even in a .zip or renamed.)

Wow, that's the fastest I've ever made working tokens. Great jo and thanks!

Only thing to note compared to doing this manually are the tokens that have long weapons or limbs that mess up the final result. But still, excellent tool.^^

My virus scanner says there's a trojan (VBS/Psyme) in "download_images.vbs".

While I'm no expert, I couldn't see anything suspicious in the file when I opened it in Notepad++.

August 28th, 2009, 16:20
It may be because of the downloading functionality....the psyme trojan downloads malware onto the infected machine. I'd say false positive most likely.

valeros
August 28th, 2009, 17:16
Since it is a VBScript and not a bianry executable, you can edit it instead of running it. (Right click and select edit.) Then you can read the contents of the script to verify it is not a trojan.

Has anyone tried tokentool at www.rptools.net. Its free and works very well.

Yes, I used token tool to make all the D&D minis into tokens about a year ago.
However, that's not quite as convenient as automated production. The tokens I made were available on my site for awhile when it was a nonprofit website, but since we had to add a revenue source we have since removed said tokens, you may be able to find someone who still has them tho.

Here is another bat file you can use to sort them into folders by the first letter. You can add it to the end of the rename script file if you want and pass it the same parameter.

I'm sure you could do it with a loop and the ASCII character codes but I thought this would be easier for me to understand.

Use the same syntax as the other BAT files.
> SortIntoFolders 100

if you want to sort all the images within a folder called 100x100.

Hmm am I doing something wrong with the resize? It creates the folder but it is empty.

valeros
September 7th, 2009, 03:19
Several ideas:
1) Make sure you have ImageMagick installed. The resizing uses ImageMagick. Also, when you install ImageMagick, you need to say that it is added to your path.
2) Put a line at the top of convert_images.bat like:PATH=%PATH%;c:\program files\imagemagick-6.5.5-q16
3) Make sure no spaces in any directory name anywhere in the path to where you placed the scripts.
4) Check the JPGimages folder. If for some reason it could not write to the folder, it would leave the images in JPGimages. You could just cut and paste all the .png files to the folder.
5) Make sure you are running the script from a directory above the JPGimages directory and that the convert_images.bat script is there as well.
6) From a command tool (type "cmd" in the Start->Run box or "Start->All Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt"). Change to the directory with the scripts (which should be one directory above JPGImages). Run the convert script by hand "convert_images.bat 50" and watch the output for errors. You can stop it anytime with <ctrl>C.
7) The script only looks for .jpg files and only in a folder named JPGimages. If the folder was renamed or the images are not .jpg, it will not work.

Valeros,

Love the idea, but it's not working for me. I was having the same problem as Screenmonkey2099 - Resize created a 50x50 or 100x100 folder, but no images. I started to go through your troubleshooting list in order, but after step 2 it started giving me an error message that, "c:\program files\imagemagick-6.5.5-q16\mogrify.exe is not a valid Win32 application." Went through the rest, just to be sure - no dice. Any ideas?

Thanks for the help and the scripts!!!

But where do you find all the token graphics? On the WotC website, there are maybe only 20 minis (Primal Evils) for Monster Manual 1.

Where are these 900 images that people keep talking about?

zabulus
September 20th, 2009, 11:43
If you click on the "Miniatures" button to get where you see those Primal Evils, on the left hand side is a menu choice "Miniatures Gallery", which leads you to: here (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mix/gallery)

When you installed imagemagick did you select the checkbox that something along the lines of "Add program to system executable path"

This is incredibly useful. Thank you very, very much.

The resize scripts are very cool and are going to save hundreds of manhours. :)

Some ideas I'd like to see:
* a script that resizes each image to match the size of the physical miniature, for us anal types
* a script that would help sort the miniatures (the alphabetical one above is nice) possibly by set, or by creature type, etc.?

I realize neither of those would be particularly fast to whip up probably. Thanks again everyone!

I saw the option and that it was already checked (looked for it after reading some of the previous posts), so I left it alone. I will try uninstalling and re-installing and see if I was looking at the wrong thing, perhaps.

My virus scanner says there's a trojan (VBS/Psyme) in "download_images.vbs".

Hmmm I do not get that... (I've just downloaded and scanned it).

Illrigger
September 23rd, 2009, 22:13
It's a false positive.

"The trojan exists as VBScript. This script contains instructions to download a remote executable, save it to a specified location on the local disk, and then execute it."

Your AV software isn't smart enough to figure out that any VBS file that downloads things isn't a virus.

The sorting is nice, but there is still WAY to many tokens in each letter (unless I am not doing something correctly and the token box CAN be resized)

uninstalled and reinstalled - confirmed that option to include in system path is checked as a default and left it that way. same error msg: c:\program files\imagemagick-6.5.5-q16\mogrify.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
gives me that for EVERY token it attempts to create (unless I kill the process in manager), creates the 50x50 folder (empty) and doesn't create re-sized jpgs anywhere. anyone have any thoughts? thanks!

You CAN actually resize the token box and it is almost a necessity with this number of tokens. Hold down CTRL and click-drag on an empty space inside the token box or on the border edge to expand or contract it. You unfortunately have to manually tell it to arrange the first time you open each folder or resize though.

Tried using this today, no luck, I get an error downloading files. I noticed if I edited download_images.vbs and added downloadImages "http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mix/gallery" to the beginning, I downloaded images from that page. I tried adding specific mini set pages and I got the same error about failing to create a file. Anyone use this to download recently?

I would imagine the hardcoded web links the script utilises and the code itself requires updating given WotC just updated their website recently and the structure is completely different to the structure they employed before.

valeros
October 15th, 2009, 08:40
Updated scripts to handle new website. Mostly just replacing "default.asp" in download_images.vbs with "dnd/Article.aspx". However, had to add a couple "if" statements to handle some wierdly named images. Also, updated delete_junk.bat to delete some new images the script downloads that are not miniatures.

I couldn't find the version of ImageMagic that you referenced, so I downloaded "ImageMagick-6.5.7-QT16" and renamed the reference in convert_images.bat from "PATH=%PATH%;c:\program files\imagemagick-6.5.5-q16" to "PATH=%PATH%;c:\program files\ImageMagick-6.5.7-1"

Worked fine after that.

Using the OP's original script, I've made a script that takes the information for the Warband Generator (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mi/20031113x) and creates the images. Unfortunately, the WG hasn't been updated since 2007, so not all the image sets are available through this method.

The file is a VBScript file, so you may get warnings of a virus. As stated before, this is because it's using a Shell and FileSystemObject to create PNG files and to get the data from the JS file. No files are modified in the process.

Instructions:

Download the Warband Generator (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mi/20031113x) from WotC and unzip the file.
Download the revised script (attached) and unzip the file.
Modify the script to your system

Change the below line to the location of the "convert.exe" for Image Magic (don't forget your folder location)
ConvertLoc = "c:\program files\ImageMagick-6.5.7-1\convert.exe"
Change the below line to the location of where you saved the Warband Generator
FileDrive = "C:\Downloaded Files\minigen1140full\"

Run the downloaded script.
The files will come out in [Set]_[Number] Name.png format.


FYI, the script opens a new window each time to run the appropriate information. This is due to the fact that each file has it's own file name and different sizes. I had a message box populate that asked if I was sure I wanted to run the "convert.exe". This will likely populate each time you run this unless you select the check box to "don't ask each time".

The only files that are needed is the "data.js" and the "minis" folder. Everything else can be deleted.

The script can be modified to include additional tags, but I'll leave that up to you.
Modifications

To change how the file exports, modify this line
ImgFile2 = chr(34) & FileDrive & "minis\" & ImgSet & "\" & ImgSet & "_" & ImgNum & " " & ImgName & ".png" & chr(34)
If you want to save the file as the original name, modify this line (not tested)
ImgFile2 = ImgFile2
to
ImgFile2 = ImgFile1


Edit: You will need to move these to the appropriate section for your Tokens. I haven't messed around with the program to know where to put these.

Edit 2: There's also an "issue" with the Black, Blue, and Red "Icons". The images (../minis/I/) provided show a logo, the box, and the monster. You will need to crop the images to only show the monster. The program will do the rest.

THANK YOU!

I am running Windows 7 and this worked perfectly.

One note I did have to manually create the JPGImages folder in the same directory with the VBS files. After this I had to properly install ImageMagick and change the first line of the convert_Images.bat to show the following entry:

PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.5.7-Q16

I really appreciate the time and effort you have placed into doing this.

OK, I found out why it didn't automatically create the JPGImages folder. My internet connection is Wireless and will often have packet loss. If the Download times out it will not finish downloading and will not move all of the images to the JPGImages folder.

If this happens you simply just need to delete any images that you've downloaded and run the Download_Images.vbs again.

When it finished downloading the first time I had 908 images, after deleting those images and running the download again I had 1168 images and it properly created the JPGImages folder.

Anyway, Just thought if someone had the same problem I did that they might find this helpfull.

Updated the scripts:
1) Added Savage Encounters (for a total of 1208 images/tokens)
2) Scripts can now put all images/tokens in one directory or put each set in its own directory. (If all are put in one directory, some have a suffix of "2" since there are some duplicate names (e.g., "Gargoyle.jpg" and "Gargoyle 2.jpg"))
3) Made names a little bit better for some sets (removed suffix "_tn" , removed leading numbers, removed leading "72GoL", and replaced "_" with space)

Got it to work, and it is awesome!

One thing that might be helpful to others who might be as clueless as I was: the ImageMagick download you want is the "Binary Release" for Windows; that is the self-installing one.

Also, be careful when inserting the line Valeros suggested at the beginning of the "convert_images.bat" file that you only insert the part beginning with "PATH=%PATH%".

Just some tips to any other not-so-savvy types that might be out there.

True, but if WotC takes down those image galleries, then the other version is in the same boat. Although I'm sure they'd also think to strip the Warband Generator too.

The newer 4e minis are nice to have though. I'm sure that a revision would allow for pulling either way, but that would require a bit of actual work ;)

I was bored this last weekend and thought I'd give updating the script a go.

Attached is a VBScript file that will download the images from the WotC website, add them to folders with the set name (ex, ...\Harbinger\[images]), and convert the files to PNG format for the size of the miniature (determined by Pixels and scaled to S, M, L, H, etc).

Please note, this file is not complete! Also, none of the miniatures have been changed to represent their true size. Only Harbinger is supported at this time.

I'm looking for people to test to make sure that it's working correctly. The task of associating files to desired file names will take a bit of time to fill out the remaining sets. This has worked on my system. If you receive any errors, let me know. Keep in mind, this is a test script!

Changes to be made by the user:

Line 15, change the directory to where the VBScript file is saved.
Line 94, change the directory of ImageMagick to match your own as well as the version number (see previous posts on how to install).


To run:

Extract the VBScript file
Double Click on the "DownloadAndResize.vbs" file
Enter a number for the pixel size you desire
After the run is complete (you'll receive a message box), run the "resize.bat" by double clicking.

I had two problems running both scripts from Valeros. I'm running Windows XP still because I'm a Linux guy (except games) and see no reason to give Bill any more money :)

Anyway, the main problem was the error:

"Interface Not Registered" in line 120 (Set images = objIE.Document.images)

I haven't programmed in Windows for several years and never used VB so I don't remember what needs to be registered. I Googled it and didn't find a solution, so here is a command to download all images from a web page with Linux:

wget -r -A jpg http://www.<OnePathFromTheOriginalScript>
(You can use -A jpg,gif,etc for multiple formats)

ImageMagick also works with Linux, but I just copied all the images to the XP machine and ran the resize script. The resize worked but it didn't move the files. I got an error in convert_images.bat. Something about not being able to move multiple files in to a single file. I had to change:

'move *.png ..\%1x%1' to 'move *.png %1x%1'

It then worked. Thanks for the scripts, Valeros.

Is this in regards to the latest version I downloaded? If that's the case, it will only download the one (Harbinger).

You can change this yourself by modifying line 23 of the script to read

for i = 1 to 22

and putting an apostrophe at the beginining of line 81

'txtBatch = txtBatch & CreateBatchFile(CurrLoc, SetName, objFSO.GetFileName(image.src), SetNum)

This will download all the files, but will not modify them in any way (rename, convert, etc).

There are a considerable amount of images that need to be renamed in my version. The end goal would be to set up the images as an Extention (I hear this reduces the load time). Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of free time lately. Hopefully soon...

Hi, if you are lucky enough to own a PDF, then yes you can parse that, as well as through the compendium.

I'm not aware of any tutorial. I had a bit of a nightmare working it out, but once you do it's actually really simple.

HI,

There are some web-pages you can subscribe to that are used by tech support. If both of us log in to it, I can see your screen. It's perfectly safe, I've used it for business clients b4.

It's the easiest way, trying to type out all the intructions is just painful, especially due to the quirks. Not a lot of the quicks are not to do with the app, but they way Wizards represent the data.

Incidentally, this forum has a private message facility, we can set up something through that if you like. It would take me 5 mins to do it on screen. Typing a doc or making a vid would take more like 5 hours.

It really is worth it in the end, since you get a ton of stuff available in FG2 that you can just click, drag and drop and so on. Cheers.

Here is the link. Its made by Cisco, so you can be assured it's not some cowby outfit.

Star Wars minis to tokens script attached. Same rules/instructions as D&D minis (and readme file included in zip file.) (Be sure Image Magick is loaded and allow it to be in path when installing.)

Note that I only saw image galleries for four sets (Universe, Clone Strike, Rebel Storm, and Revenge of the Sith.) If there are others, please post the URLs.

If anything is named wrong in Universe, you can correct the rename_universe.bat file or fix manually. But please post the error so I can correct. Thanks

Excellent piece of work. Very handy. Is there some way to set this up so that it uses the native resolution of the images but still squares them up?

valeros
March 13th, 2010, 19:43
Attached are scripts to "squareup" the images. Run the appropriate "squareup_images_directory_per_set" script (one for D&D (_Dnd), one for Star Wars (_SW)). Leaves images in a folder called Square under each set.

** Be aware that the script spawns a DOS window for EACH image (to calculate its size). So it sort of takes over your computer when running because it keeps moving mouse focus to the DOS window, making it impossible to work on something else. **

Also, script assumes that you used the newer script that downloads images into folders by set and not all into one directory. If all in one directory, simply change the script to list just that one directory. But there still must be an "Original" directory inside that directory that holds the images.

valeros

Updated script for D&D minis that names the tokens much better. Just replace existing script with attached script.

1) Add spaces between words
2) Capitalize first letter of each word
3) Strip "-" for heroes
4) Move gender to end for heroes
5) Replace "Aspectof" with "Aspect of"

... and keeps the original resolutions! That's exactly what I was hoping for.

I removed backgrounds and bases on 8 of these sets by hand, taking the opportunity to add things like bowstrings and other minor effects... but that took me around 3-8 minutes per mini.

Doing one at a time tends to make things a little more accurate, but nothing beats the sheer speed and convenience of what you've provided everyone here.

Thanks again, Valeros.

Ok i need some help in here...i use the script and after i donwload the first set i got an error and goes down :( the set dont go to a folder and the images are all 1,2,3,4...the one from tdewitt274 worked so well :(
Help please...

First, try the new set of scripts posted (star_wars_minis.zip).

It slightly changes how directories are created which seems to be the problem you have. After downloading, script creates folder named for set (e.g., "Rebel Storm"), renames them if needed (only for Universe set), and then moves them into the folder. Since it downloaded the images and them stopped, it seems it could not create the directory. What is the exact error? Did you get all 60 JPGs before it crashed? Do you have a Universe folder? Does it have an Original folder inside?

If the new scripts do not work, try this:
1) Create four folders: "Rebel Storm", "Universe", "Revenge of the Sith", and "Clone Strike"
2) Create a folder inside each of those called "Original"
3) Use the second set of scripts for downloading each set individually. Do this for each:
a) Run the script that downloads that set
b) run the "delete_junk.bat"
c) For universe, run the "rename_universe.bat"
d) move all the JPGs to the appropriate Original folder

Now you have all the images and can run the resize script to make tokens from them.

When I extract these files my system thinks one of the VBS files is a trojan virus. Is this something expected based on the way the script works or has something been infected? Looks like a great utility so I'm hoping that it is just a false positive.

VBScript is pretty powerful. The FileSystemObject and Shell commands are used. In the code that I've written, it moves files, creates folders, downloads files, and manipulates files. I've also used code from the original poster to make my files.

You can view the code in the file by right clicking on the file name in Explorer and chosing "Edit". If you don't know Visual Basic coding languages (or even C based for that matter), it may not make sense.

Rule of thumb, if you don't feel comfortable don't use it. That being said, I wouldn't post it to a public forum if it did something bad.

Warhammer Fantasy attached.

Two different download scripts. One to download the smaller images (748 images @ 8.54MB) and one to download the much larger 873x627 image of each (748 imags @ 89.6 MB). Larger one is much slower due to increased size of images and has to navigate to additional URL for each image. (Smaller one has a lot of "Citadel" watermarks on the images.)

Not sure what you mean by zoom. Use the resize script to make the downloaded images the token size you want.

Try this site:

http://www.vesivus.com/swminis/All.htm

it shows 421 minis all on one page or you can filter them. I used Firefox and the Downthemall add on, to download the images into one folder, then used the bat file to process them. Works like a charm.

I wasn't able to get the VBS file to download the DnD minis the way it was described. I was only able to do 1 folder at a time, then I had to remove a section of code and retry. It will download the next folder. Of course it doesn't rename them or create a folder. The other problem is you have to turn off real time scanning otherwise McAfee simply quarantines the VBS file.

Very nice, thanks. Next up the Warhammer tokens :)

First guess, look to see if the "download_images_directory_per_set.vb s" file exists. I that it may have a space in the BAT file, or whatever is running. If that is the case, you'll want to get rid of that space.

Second guess, it may be that WotC has moved stuff around. I'm betting on the first though.

bigbsonnier
April 17th, 2011, 04:22
nah the space was just a typo on my part, i think wotc renamed the first few sets in the file list because the names are importing now, but still it only does one at a time and doesn't create folder so basically now i'm just downloading one set at a time putting them into a folder deleting that set from the script and re-running, its still saving hours of work, just would have been cooler if it work like it probably originally did.

You could also try this script (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showpost.php?p=98972&postcount=31).

tdewitt274
April 17th, 2011, 16:23
These are modules for FG. You can put them in your "modules" folder under the Application Data folder.

The reason for the MOD files is to reduce on the amount of time to load FG for the players. You can open the MOD when needed and close it when finished.

You should be able to pull the minis out of the modules into the campaign. Open the module and put the minis you need on a map, then close the module. If memory serves me correctly, they will be available in the root of the token box.

Try it out and let me know if this still works. I did it once, but I'm having issues with my FG after switching to a new PC.

according to "http://www.wizards.com/dnd/Article.aspx?x=dnd/mi/setsymbols" these don't have set symbols and i think the program hiccuped in creating the ".mod"s for those due to that fact.

tdewitt274
April 19th, 2011, 14:46
The mod creation process is a bit of a timing thing. The zipping utility works on it's own and you have to let the script "sleep" for an amount of time. I tried to set it for a short enough period to ensure that everything was ready to go, but it will depend on the system. Maybe increasing lines 136, 138, and 140 by 1000 will take care of the issue.

WotC stopped creating the thumbnails after they stopped supporting the minis game. However, the script doesn't care if there is a thumbnail created. It just adds the PNG and XML to the zip file and later updates the extention to MOD.

bigbsonnier
April 19th, 2011, 15:20
hmm cool. interesting, is there any difference between a zip and mod besides the extension? your post seems to suggest there isn't.

tdewitt274
April 19th, 2011, 19:02
Rulesets, MODs, EXTs and PAKs are only ZIPs. You do need an XML file to tell FG what to do. But basically, rename them to ZIP and extract them to see what's inside.

Well you posted in a DDM(Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures) images as tokens thread, so I assumed you simply mistyped GW instead of WG (warband generator) Games Workshop has never licensed DDM and do not license their images on their site for printing.

VBS/Psyme found in the main vbs file.

McAfee seemed to think it was a virus for me as well, and kept deleting the file, but I'm not so sure there is an actual virus. I think it may just be fooling the AV programs.

I used it and never had a problem other than the anti virus program kept quarantining it.

I'm no virus expert though.:)

I think the reason the VBS in the token parser is being spotted as a VBS/Psyme trojan virus is that the code connects to the Wizards website to download the tokens.

The VBS/Psyme trojan virus uses VBS code to connect to websites to download malware.

The anti-virus program you're using is probably just detecting generic website access from a VBS script.

Does anyone know if these still work? I received a private message saying that they were having issues. I've since upgraded my PC and don't have the ImageMagik program to test it. Looks like the file locations are still good (just by checking one of them). If they don't, I'd be OK with uploading them somewhere. Not sure how "legal" it is to put them up on the Wiki.

Regarding the "Virus" postings previously, I'm sure the AntiVirus is flagging the VBScript file just on principle. VBScript is capable of writing to disc and that could be considered malicious. However, the script is safe (malicious intent is not something I personally subscribe to).

The reason for the script is it would be illegal in most places to post and distribute the tokens because the art is copyrighted. However, for personal use it would probably be OK. So legally you should be able to run the script and use the tokens as long as you didn't distribute the tokens to others. So you don't want to put the tokens up on the Wiki because you'll get the wiki owner in trouble.

There are two different aspects to the scripts as I remember it. One part is for automatically downloading the images from the websites in question. The second part is for taking a folder of those downloaded images and sizing them and putting a transparent background in the image and putting the new files in their own folder.

When I used them I had problems with the auto downloading, and just did it myself. I was able to easily modify the bat file to process the downloaded files one folder at a time.

I'm guessing it will still work, you probably just have to play around with it. I'm no programmer but I managed to get some nice tokens. Of course you need to download ImageMagic in order for the process to work :) One problem with the VBS script was McAfee kept quarantining the damn file.

As an alternate, the attached zip file contains an executable built using C# in Visual Studio. It requires .Net 4.0 but it can download the D&D miniature images and also resize and convert to PNG with transparent background without needing ImageMagick.

A directory called JPG is created where the JPGs are stored in the same way as the original scripts so that the original scripts can still be used if desired. Just copy the scripts into that directory.

If creating PNGs, they will be under the PNG folder in a folder named by the pixel size selected for the minis.

I used the names and mini sizes from tdwitt274's script (but I do not shrink the image size for monsters below medium).

Brilliant! The evolution of a great tool. Thanks for making this Valeros :)

I posted this info in another thread a while back, It might help you as well
http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showpost.php?p=110404&postcount=3

I don't understand how this tool works. I ran it once and I saw a lot of Dnd monster names as Jpgs with something supposedly happening, but I couldnt find any output file.

Are there step by step directions anywhere?

i havent done it for a long while - but the instructions were all here... you do have to do a bit of reading though... and sometimes you may misinterpret the instructions on your first (or second!) go... it took me a little bit to get it working but it did run nicely.

From memory -
Make sure you install ImageMagick in the correct/default location: http://www.imagemagick.org/
Make sure you are logged into your D&D Insiders account.

It is the same but all automated through a Windows GUI plus it downloads more minis (Pathfinder).

Cool. Perhaps you could also just add a Date to your first post edit so people know its the newest version :)
I know it shows edit date at bottom of the page too...
Great work by the way.

Norton blocks it when I try to use it, but purely on reputation (less than 50 Norton users having used the application) not for any other reason, it doesn't think it's a Trojan. I've used this app a few times in the past. If you're unsure, don't use it - but if you want to download some minis-as-tokens...

Norton should block itself as being a Trojan.
