Creating and using custom card and suit images:
1. All images must be in PNG format.
2. Card size depends on the screen resolution. We use 130x182 for hdpi screens.
3. Create card images for each card and name them 'card_(s)(r).png' where (s) is the first letter of card suit and (r) is the card rank.
Suit first letters are: 's' for spades, 'c' for clubs, 'd' for diamonds and 'h' for hearts.
Available card ranks are as follows: '6', '7', '8', '9', '10', 'j', 'q', 'k', 'a'.
Example: 'Ace of spades' would be named 'card_sa.png'
At this point you should have a total of 32 cards.
4. Create card back image and name it 'card_back.png'
5. Create suit images for enabled and disabled states named 'suit_(s)_(t).png'
Use the same suit letters in (s) and 'e' or 'd' in (t) for enabled and disabled states respectively. There is an additional suit letter in this case for designating 'no trump': 'n'.
Example: enabled no trump image would be named 'suit_n_e.png'
The total number of suit images should be 10.
6. Zip all the files and put the archive in a folder listed in the card deck choice dialog in settings.
7. Missing images will be shown as corresponding defaults.
8. Desired deck can be selected in profile settings.
We hope you are going to enjoy playing the game the way we did while developing it.
