  1. Hi nandaka
    Is there any option for not downloading avatar file? It seems to me that the member avatar will be downloaded repeatedly even the artist doesn’t update any images.Maybe I set something wrong but I can’t figure it out…
    Thanks 🙂

    1. currently the member avatar is always downloaded (because the file size is small), I will change later so it can detect the changes later on.

  2. 2011-09-08 20:21:22,585 – PixivUtil20110821b – ERROR – Error at pixivLogin(): (, FormNotFoundError(“no form matching name ‘loginForm'”,), )

    And it was working yesterday, can someone explain how to fix this pretty please?

    1. Pixiv update their website, so the login process is broken. Currently you can login if you copy the cookies from the browser (see here). I will update it on the weekend.

  3. Im upgrading from pixivutil20110205, and I cant get past the login. I can do it fine from my browser.
    This is the error I get:

    Password ?
    logging in
    Log in using form.
    Error at pixivLogin(): (, FormNo
    tFoundError(“no form matching name ‘loginForm'”,), )
    failed
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “PixivUtil2.py”, line 825, in main
    File “PixivUtil2.py”, line 261, in pixivLogin
    File “mechanize_mechanize.pyc”, line 524, in select_form
    FormNotFoundError: no form matching name ‘loginForm’
    press enter to exit.

    My second issue is that I am having trouble getting it to find my list.txt, it gives me (cannot find ‘..\list.txt’). I have it inside the pixivutil folder:

    [Settings]
    proxyaddress =
    useproxy = False
    useragent = Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Unix i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008071615 Fedora/3.0.1-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0.1
    debughttp = False
    userobots = True
    filenameformat = %member_token% (%member_id%)%image_id%
    timeout = 60
    uselist = True
    processfromdb = True
    overwrite = False
    tagsseparator = ,
    daylastupdated = 7
    rootdirectory = E:Downloaded
    retry = 999
    retrywait = 5
    createdownloadlists = False
    downloadlistdirectory = ..
    irfanviewpath = C:Program FilesIrfanView
    startirfanview = False
    startirfanslide = False
    alwayscheckfilesize = True
    checkupdatedlimit = 0

    [Pixiv]

    1. Well, I got the login to work by using the instructions for the cookie back in the 20110708 version. I guess its required now.

      But I still can’t get it to find the list.txt inside the folder.

      1. Thanks for the information.

        For the list.txt, set the downloadListDirectory in the config to the directory where list.txt is located.

      2. I got it to work by using a single “.” instead of the “..” that appears in the default config.ini inside the zip.
        Reminds me a little of that linux command line book I never got too far in, heh.

  4. Can’t thank you enough for creating this program. It’s saved me so much time and effort in terms of downloading.

    That said, bit of a problem (most likely on my end, but not sure). Since yesterday I’ve been getting this message whenever I start up the program:

    Error at pixivLogin(): (, FormNo
    tFoundError(“no form matching name ‘loginForm'”,), )
    failed
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “PixivUtil2.py”, line 825, in main
    File “PixivUtil2.py”, line 261, in pixivLogin
    File “mechanize_mechanize.pyc”, line 524, in select_form
    FormNotFoundError: no form matching name ‘loginForm’
    press enter to exit.

    From what I gather there seems to be some sort of problem with my login name, but I’m not sure why.

  5. Is there a way I can type Japanese characters in cmd.exe? I find the download by tag useless since most tags are in Japanese :/
