  1. Tags.xml is in the same folder as the .exe, it doesn’t throw an outright error message but in the log tab you get

    [DoBatchJob] Downloading list: http://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=dapi&s=post&q=index&tags=Final_Fantasy_VI&limit=100&pid=1229
    [DoBatchJob] Error: Root element is missing.

    as an example. I’ve left it running and it claims to be on page 1400 or so. When left in this state it has stopped and claimed to be done, without anything downloaded, but I cannot recreate that. It’s being run on an XPSP3 Intel Atom/GMA machine, if that provides anything.

      1. Thumbnails do not show in the main tab and it returns one broken thumbnails (red x) per page lookup. These page lookups are performed rapidly, like it isn’t finding content.

        I can access that page, though I am not sure what I should do with it.

        Asides from the tags.xml, is there any change in the default settings from the 03/09 version?

        Sorry about this, I hope this isn’t just a stupid error on my part~

  2. Having trouble batch downloading from gelbooru with this version. The 03/09 version, however, works when I enter the same information (A tag, a large limit and a download location. The failure mode in particular is that it tries to list any number of pages contents’, without actually grabbing any images.

    Thanks for the useful little tool, saves far more time than it should~

  3. it seems that i cant open this version of danbooru downloader, but i can open earlier ver. is there any error in this ver?

    1. What is the error message? Have you tried to download the archive again? Try to update the .Net version to the latest one. There is no change in the compilation I believe. I’m using .Net Framework 4.

  4. I’m having trouble downloading from megabooru. I can get a list from the main tab and add it do the Download List tab but whenever I try to download I always get the same error “Value cannot be null, Param name: source” The same error occurs on Full Batch Mode. This is happening on all Shimmie based boorus.

  5. It seems like the downloader is unable to grab priviliged tags like “loli”. It gives the 403 Forbidden error. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you for updating.

    1. Nevermind, I think I got it.
      I get an internal server error 500 when using 3 tags or more on Danbooru, because of the limit. I guess this is not bypassable?
