    Ever feel frustrated figuring out what cards to hunt next because the poor Monster Book layout? The Monster Book Transcription app will machine-read screenshots of your monster book so you can sort it against the information provided by the Monster Book Efficient Farming Guide by Precel and Bambo.

    I really appreciate the level of detail that was put into the card farming guide, thank you.

    Warning that this is a work in progress (WIP). I currently don't have my desktop on me, so this will only work if for screenshots taken on macOS with default client settings and a retina display (cmd-shift-4 + space + click resulting in a 1824x1468 image). I'd like to eventually support all resolutions in the Windows client.

    After capturing your Monster Book in screenshots, you can transcribe them in the app. Image processing is done locally in your browser. Afterwards, you can check the grid view to see if the results look okay:

    By default, all of the sets that have been completed are hidden from view. If for some reason you'd like to view them, there are some options to play with.

    The table view is more informative. You can sort by the order in the book, by card route, or by the number of cards collected.

    By book order:
    This is the default view, but it's only useful for checking that the transcription is done correctly.

    By card route (tour) order:
    This is the order that's suggested by the efficient farming guide. This effectively orders monsters by their location in the world map. This is the view that I wanted for my own personal card hunting.

    By card collected order:
    This order sorts by the number of cards collected, then by the tour order. If you only need a few more sets to get to the next tier, this will probably be useful.

    The source code can be found on Github at geospiza-fortis/monsterbook. I've attached a single image (Screen Shot 2020-09-05 at 5.51.46 PM.png) that can be transcribed for testing. You can also download a zip file of my monster book for a larger test.
