How to Edit a Strat-o-Matic Computer Card in MS Paint

Over at StratFanForum, there has been some discussion lately about how to best capture Strat-o-Matic’s computer-only player cards and turn them into actual cards that can be printed and played.

I posted an example of one card I did, and then had a request from TerryB for a step-by-step instruction.

Below is a video of How To Use MS Paint to take a Strat-o-Matic computer card and turn it into a printable card.

In the video I take this Don Drysdale 1965 Pitcher’s Hitting Card from the Notebook:

I hope this is helpful, I hope it makes sense.  A couple notes:

  • I’m using Strat-o-Matic version 15 and MS Paint Windows 7 version, but it doesn’t matter which versions of these software you use, the basic process is exactly the same.
  • The video doesn’t have sound, so don’t worry, it’s not your speakers.
  • As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments or to contact me in other ways.  I’m glad to help!

  1. All I want to do is put a * by the players name to avoid data corruption caused by having two players on a roster with the same name. can this be done after a season has already been started? Thanks.
