Just checked them. The files for the image packs for OCTGN are working fine for me. You have to extract them all the way to the .o8c file. 

Ah, that must have been where I went wrong.  How do I make it into an .o8c file though?  Is it just a simple extraction?  I tried that and it just gave me an empty folder whernn OCTGN asks for an image pack...

Hey Majin Goo,
I actually decided to make an account on this forum just to respond to this topic (though I admit, I've been lurking in the background for awhile). This was a fantastic package. As an Australian, we don't really have ready access to the Dragon Ball CCG even with proxies and all the other places I was looking at that HAD the image packs had been removed by this point (though I don't know if they're back-up). So, thanks for enabling me and my mates to play on OCTGN.

This said, just because there seems to be some confusion with A Random Role Player (may I call you ARRP for short?), it could be that they're trying to install the fusion format files which are in .o8s instead of .o8c, the former of which isn't supported on OCTGN anymore. This shouldn't affect PanZ/FanZ, but it means that the images for Fusion Format aren't really usable without first converting them (which I haven't been able to manage successfully, so I haven't a clue how to do that). I could be wrong though, just thought I'd try to help.

Chees, and thanks again.

Below is the link for the Image Packs for OCTGN as provided and maintained by Brandon Shollenberger. All other instructions for installing OCTGN and the DBZ Feed remain the same for now.

Drop a comment to let me know if anything isn't right or if the link stops working. 

 

@Majin Goo Hey I'm new Ive been troubleshooting this problem for 6hrs straight I went to your link but the only image pack that works is the Celestial Tournament 08c file. The other packs don't work when I try to upload the images on octgn, I'm guessing bcuz theyre zipped files? Also I tried to unzip the files and then upload but that doesn't work either. Only option I have since these things aren't working is to drag the unzipped files to the deck builder manually but I cant bcuz I'm not a subscriber and I don't wanna sub yet just cuz I'm new.. anyway idk if this site is dead or what since I'm so late but plz hit me with a reply id greatly appreciate it.

@Ryohei, calm down a bit. They're just ZIP files, and should be decompressed into 08C files, which are what you upload as the image packs. if that doesn't work, it may be an issue in the program you use, or your OCTGN. I just checked the files uploaded by Majin, and I'm not really having an issue with them, so I don't think it's an issue with the folders.

Another issue to consider is possibly your internet connection. If it fluctuates, or dips partway into the download, then you'll get damaged 08Cs, and it won't work. Unless you're referring to Fusion, in which case, the unzipped files are in an outdated format and like hell do I know how to fix that.

Also, one of the image packs will come up as broken when you upload it. It's not, it's just an error in the implementation that gives that message (it uploads fine).

This will be updated Monday 7/2/2017 after I get off work. The update will include a complete package updated with set 9 and a separate download for set 9 by itself.

Hey Majin Goo, do you have a comprehensive collection of all the promos? I just went over Panini's blog to get all the reprints incase their stuff goes down due to licensing, but they didn't have most of the promos.

I do not. However, I remember seeing a site that did, or for the most part had almost all of the ones released. I'll take a look and see if I can find it.

With the release of set 10 and going forward, the download packs will be consolidated to a single file. I feel this will make it more complete as a starter kit. I will also be releasing my templates for creating cards after adding the trait icons to the MP template. Expect that to release around the beginning of December. I have no plans to do a working hi tech template as there is a usable one already released. 

The templates I'm releasing will be simple, easy to use, and will be easily customized as I designed them to be clean, smooth and consistent. Because of this the template can easily be adjusted for non-DBZ related things. I will show examples tomorrow. 

The release will be free. I may also do an Alt or Full art Beerus as a solution to my problem and the community can love it or hate it.

I can't seem to get this pack to download. Every time I download it and try to open, it says "Cannot open as archive". I've tried several zip programs on different computers. Help!

Try using winrar. Just tested it and the file itself is fine. This however, isn't updated with 10 and 10.5 yet which I plan to do this coming week.

There's a reason I didn't. The site I use to make proxies doesn't compensate for bleed and safe zones correctly. These oversized borders deal with their cut measurements perfectly. You can see examples in the provided link. This is how they came out without trimming.

Made an account just to ask this, what site do you use to make proxies?

As of right now I get mine through the Awesome Sauce Facebook group for FanZ. For Pan I own a play set of almost every card. The few I had made was done through a website that caught on and started refusing. I am experienced making my own and it's actually not that hard with an ink jet.

Ah, I'm not on facebook so I can't see anything, what are prices like?
And would you mind sharing that site still? I've been wanting to make a custom Love Letter set as well, but couldn't find a place to do it without a billion copies.

Would you mind sharing how you make your own proxies with an ink jet? Or a link(s) you used?

Thanks, and sorry for all the questions. haha

Here's where you can make some cards and not order a bunch. I used them to make some of my PanZ proxies.

I may have lost the bookmarks to the videos I used to learn to make my proxies. It basically boils down to finding a cheap foil in a game you're wanting to make them in, peeling the foil off, applying a digital base coat to the white of the card, printing a piece of paper with a outline of where the card should be during print, taping the card to the sheet with NON-permanent double sided tape, print, let the ink settle, then add the finish you want. I normally add a matte finish to the front.

Great, thank you that's perfect! Can't wait to make my Love Letter set now. Do they have a problem with FanZ printing or just the Panini? Or both.

 

And very interesting printing. Do you mean like a matte finish spray kinda thing?

Yep, a simple matte finish from a can. Really helps protect the ink and I like the feel of it.

How do get the image packs uploaded?

If you're talking about fire Octgn, you download the compressed file, unzip it down to the ofc files, then click add image packs on the octgn start page. Select the ofc file and you're good to go.
