Collection and Trade

  • Added: New warning icon for decks that contain versions of cards that are different than those in a player's collection
  • Fixed: While "Show Versions Separately" is selected, double clicking a pile to add cards to a deck or binder will only add the selected version
  • Fixed: When adding cards to a deck or binder, the correct version is added when "Show Versions Separately" is not selected
  • Fixed: Issue that caused incorrect quantity of items to show in collection and binder after using the "Add All to Open Binder" context menu selection while versions of the selected item were already in the binder

Duel Scene and Play Lobby

  • Updated: Adjusted default sizes and locations for several Duel Scene elements, including: starting hand size, minimum hand size, sizes of cards in temporary windows and on the battlefield, and "Red Zone" size
  • Fixed: If an opponent has revealed his or her hand, and then concedes, the revealed cards no longer persist for the next game
