Batch creation of cards?

If I have a directory full of image files for cards/tiles, is there any way to create them as a batch? I’m risking a repetitive stress injury from all the double-clicking I’m doing to create hundreds of cards! When I finish with the first couple of columns, I’m going to have to start a pretty annoying process whereby I have to scroll the file system window to the right several times for each card image I want to select, leading to hundreds more clicks. Help! :slight_smile:

There isn’t any particular tool at the moment to do anything like that.

However, some module designers have written scripts to automatically
generate the appropriate build-file entries and then manually edited
the build-file to include them.

Once you have a couple entries, it is pretty clear what the pattern in
the build file looks like.

Thanks for the reply. When I’m finished with this project – I’m mostly finished creating the cards via the menu – I’ll definitely look into this for future reference. Since this is only my second module created from scratch, I’m still learning a lot and I know I’m just scratching the surface of what VASSAL can do!
