  1. Trying to download from user 2427721 gives a ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘ul’ error

    looks like they made a new artist not found message

      1. The user has either left pixiv, or the user ID does not exist.

        and for the illustrations:
        The following work is either deleted, or the ID does not exist.

  2. Hi, thanks for this program but i have question. it seems like some of the kanji can not recognizable in this pixiv downlaoder. is there anyway for me to fix this problem ?

    1. Can you give me more details and the sample kanji input? Usually setting the locale for non-unicode to Japanese can fix this problem. Check on Goggle for the settings.

  3. Sorry, I forgot to say: member-id of the artist is 174076 (warning: NSFW, it’s an adult gallery), the error class is “mechanize._httperror_seek_wrapper” (since the file 9287323_big_p0.jpg doesn’t exist). And perhaps an option to just skip erred downloads might be good, then you can display the errors when the tool is done running.

  4. In a gallery it got stuck trying to download an image everytime I run the program. It is one of the “books”, those pages with many pictures. I believe that the reason is that they don’t have the filename_big_pn.jpg file; could you change the program to reverse to the “medium” size when there’s no “big” size found? I think it shouldn’t take you long to do it.
    There’s something else that would be great for your fantastic program in the future: if you could add a text file working as a database for the files that have been downloaded already. Because often there’s a user that has some pictures that I would prefer to delete, but the program will check every file in his gallery. If you could add an option to look only for pictures that are not included in the txt file, then there would be no need of deleting those files everytime I re-download a gallery.
    Sorry to be a bother and thank you for your great program.
