...I am such a nerd :P
The other day I came across small program that changes the looks of the cards in windows card games (solitaire, hearts, and freecell)
It comes with some custom decks, but I thought they were all kind of lame so I quickly edited the standard one (which has really huge cards o.o; ) into a Phoenix Wright related one ^^;
...I did it in paint so it kind of sucks XD but if you guys want to check it out I will post up where to get the program and host my deck edit.

Here are some screenshots..

The solitaire ones have been resized. You need a pretty big resolution to play with the biggest card size (mine's like... 1280x800 i think)
but the program can resize the cards...see screenshots, hearts and freecell are normal sized xD

Here's where I found this program :P

You can download my suck-ish Ace Attorney deck here:
http://zeiralia.deviantart.com/art/Ace- ... s-91585359
There's one custom back that I did quickly in Paint :D

And I'll post how to get it all to work :P

First just download the exe (that's what I did, but you can DL the zip if you want. But I dunno how that one works exactly) and install it.

Then go to your main drive and find your program files. The folder inside containing the cards.dll enhanced should say "Cards.2005.01" and inside is a bunch of stuff like the main exe's and the dll itself, and an ini file, CARDS.ini
You'll see the folders containing the custom cards, there are 5 default.

Inside those will be gif imaged named with numbers, 1-68
So making your own cards are easy, just remember to name them correspondinly (1 = ace of clubs, 2 = 2 of clubs...all the way up 'til 52, and then the crisscrossy thing (53), then the backgrounds, and then the last two things (the X and O) for solitaire. Whew!

So if you're using the one I made, unzip it and stick it in the main part, not in any of the other folders.
Then open the CARDS.ini in notepad, and it says something like
Code:
[Card]
Current Folder=AA 213x288 Gifs
Folders Path=C:\Program Files\Cards.2005.01\
Border Color=0
Corner Type=1
[Misc]
IniFile=1
Special Config MS Apps=1


change the thing after "Current Folder=" to the name of the folder of images you want to use, don't put a space after the =, though.
If you're using the Ace Attorney cards then it should say "Current Folder=AA 213x288 Gifs" like mine ^^;

Then click on the exe of whatever game you wanna play and it should work. :P

Nice idea, now we can see PW even during solitaire.

Good work. :maya:

That's hilarious.

... And also not a good idea for me, because I am a solitaire NUT. (Although the "mission" is on hold for now, I'm actually systematically going through every single freecell game there is. No, seriously.)

Can you change the look of the trump cards and the deck back, too?

Hum...the trump cards? Er...what's that? ^^;

I know you can change the backs, but I dunno what to put on those, so I left them. Hee.

I'll be putting up a zip file of my cards in a second.

...also, getting the custom decks to work for me was really difficult. I ended up just replacing all the cards in the "Standard cards" folder with the ones I'd made >:P
I'll mess around with it more to see if I can figure that out ^^;

And yeah. I play solitaire A LOT. For some reason it's really addicting and now the fact that they've got PW chara's on them doesn't help xD

Durr, sometimes I forget I'm using jargon. >_>; I mean, um, the normal suit cards with numbers... y'know, everything other than the face cards.

Edit: Also, using the PW logo (scroll down a little bit) seems pretty appropriate for the card backs. :3

You can change the backs, the fronts of all 52 (there aren't any jokers >:P ptooey), and the X & O for when you reach the end of the draw pile in solitaire (I know virtually no jargon ^^;; ) and also the criscrossy thing that you put the aces on.
...since I'm bad at explaining it, you can just check out the zip that I'll post in the first post o.o;

...oh and I guess I'll edit one of the backs to have the logo

..and I figured out how to get the decks to work XD

These look great!
Maybe I should have my mom play with these
cards since she's a solitare nut as well!
I'm not sure if she'll notice though...xD
