I uploaded a new version of MTG Forge but it is only a minor update. I think the only thing I added to the beta version were the 10 duel lands. Currently there is just a zip file but I will have the typical Windows installer uploaded by Tuesday. MTG Forge now has 870 cards.
This update has the complete source code and I updated the readme-compile.html file. I tested the source code twice and everything compiles like it should. MTG Forge will only compile with Java 1.4.
Remember to keep a copy of the file "all-decks2" because that holds all of the decks that you have created. If you still have the file “all-decks”, it is old and can be deleted.
MTG Forge comes with a “Quick Start” guide that answers common questions like how to target a player (click on the player’s life points) and how to download the card pictures (just look in the New Game menu). Just for fun I included an article written by Magic’s creator Richard Garfield that explains how he created the game and the early years in Magic History.html. You can read it here.

p.s. If somehow you are reading this article and you don’t know how to play Magic: The Gathering, download this demo and have some fun.
