  1. Thanks, I finally figured it out.
    ‘123456 %root%Test’ coupled with ‘processfromdb = false’ worked.
    However, is there no way to make ‘processfromdb’ work with the ‘member_id+directory’ format?
    The reason for all these is because some artists have names in japanese. Now I want to put them in custom folders so I can recognize them easier. Also, disabling ‘processfromdb’ keeps the app from finding missing images (in case I accidentally delete or modify them).

    I hope this made sense. Thanks again!

  2. Those settings makes it ignore the list.txt. Is there a way to have it regard what I have in the list and also the checkupdatedlimit?

  3. There is author with more that 1300 works. Downloading it takes time. More that 5 hours for me. So, I really want to speed up it somehow.
    And I am not so worried about hammering the server. Usually I use 3 or 4 downloaders at once.
    Also, what exactly checkUpdatedLimit does?

    1. checkUpdatedLimit ==> Number of already downloaded image limit before move to the next member. So if the downloader see the last n image is already downloaded, it will move to the next member so it doesn’t go to check all of the images, usually I’m setting it to 5.

    2. I am an idiot. Disabling “alwayscheckfilesize” allows downloader to skip already loaded files very fast.

      1. I want to use the “checkUpdatedLimit”, but it doesn’t seem to work for me, it just goes over ALL the files the artist has. I changed my config.ini so the list.txt works, but what is my config supposed to look like to make the “checkUpdatedLimit” work?

  4. Could you add ability to download in threads, to improve speed? Or ability to download by author, starting from specified page? Please.

    1. I can add download from specific page for the download by author. As for the multithread downloading, I’m not really comfortable to hammering the server with multiple request at once 🙁
