|So you've downloaded your sexy new card set but you don't know what to do with it hey ?
Well, let's see if I can give you a gentle prod in the right direction.
|First, you'll need to download and install a copy of Solitaire Setty on your PC. You can download Solitaire Setty
for free, right now.
|Next, download a Solitaire Setty Project file such as Indians.ssp.
Solitaire Setty Project files always sport the unusual file extension .ssp which stands for Solitaire Setty Project. See not so weird after all !
|Okay, now start Solitaire Setty by double clicking it's launch icon :
|Now you need to Open your Project file into Solitaire Setty, so click on
and select your Indians.ssp Project file from the standard Open File dialog box.
|All being well, the card set should load into Solitaire Setty and display itself in glorious technicolour on your screen.
Later, after consuming a large glass of your favourite Dutch Courage, you can play around with the card designs, colours and what-not
but for now, we'll take the easy route and save a Solitaire City card set without modifications just as the artist designed it : Select
Save Solitaire City Card Set ... from under the Final Cardset menu. Then choose a suitable colour depth for your display -
8-Bit for 256 colour displays or 16-Bit or 24-Bit if you have your graphics card set as it should be, to display lots and lots of colours. Don't
worry if you don't know what I'm talking about. A recommended colour depth and card size will be displayed at the top of the Save File dialog box.
|Then, locate the folder where your Solitaire City cardsets are stored. This is usually C:\Program Files\Solitaire City\Cardsets\ and should
contain the standard 8-bit card set files that were installed with Solitaire City, namely, Flaggirl.8l, Myopia.8l, Solcity.8l and Tradish.8l.
|Finally, type a file name for your new card set and hit the OK button to save it into your Cardsets folder
|Now comes the cool part; actually playing a game with your tasty new card set. Exit out of Solitaire Setty and launch Solitaire City.
Then select Load Card Set ... from the Graphics menu and you should see the name of your new card set listed with the others.
Click on it and away you go ! Enjoy !!!
|If you find the card set is too large or too small for your display, then you can go back into Solitaire Setty, select a new size
from under the Final Cardset menu and create another Solitaire City card set in a different size.
The following guidelines will help you choose a suitable size :
