Hello.

I recently downloaded the full 'Ultimate Anime Mode 5' separately from my regular YgoPro. Something I noticed was that it had an auto-update function. I found out that continuing with the autoupdate deleted all the extra anime cards, but that not updating did not allow me to duel online except on a special server dedicated to that particular version.

How do I use this expansion with the current YgoPro? Do the people I play with also need to have the expansion to see my cards?

Ok let me break it down. There is the program Ygopro which you download from this website by Percival18. And then there are clones of it like Ultimate Anime Mode from Tea82 or my mod Jackpro. Now the cards for the game are in a file called 'cards.cdb', Ultimate Anime mode has a different cdb file from Percival's version. Now something about Percival's version is that since Ultimate anime mode and Percival's versions are the same thing but different cards.cdb files, is that Percival's version will prompt you for an auto update whenever an update to his version is available. When that update happens it changes the cards.cdb to the latest Percival one. Since Percy's version of Ygopro does not have the Ultimate Anime mode cards in it this results in your problem. Think of it this way. The cards are in a database (cards.cdb), someone adds their own cards to that database, then that database gets replaced with the original getting rid of the old custom added cards. I suggest downloading Ultimate anime mode and keeping it seperate from other ygopro/ ygopro mods, and if one of those mods askes you to update say no.

As for playing with others. Online you can only play with the Percival allowed cards, they are in a white list allowing only the cards from his game and not others in a nutshell. Although if you and your friend both have the cards you want to use (say exclusive Ultimate anime mode cards), you can both install this nifty program called logmein hamachi or any lan based program and play on the LAN mode with them. There are plenty tutorials out there to tell you how to work hamachi so good luck. Also I recommend checking out my mode for Ygopro called Jackpro (currently 1.2 V2) at www.tehmadhouse.tk , it has the Alchemy Beasts, Armor monsters from Season 4 of the original yugioh, and some other cards like mentioned before you probably won't find in other Ygopro mods. Eventually the Valkyries from Season 5 of the original Yugioh are going to be added. (Sorry self advertisement I couldn't resist lol)
