Any updates on MT archival?
I got your manga right here, kid. In the back.
We don't know the exact reason, all we know is that between paypal saying no and HS hacking them, the admin pretty much said fuck it.
Maybe he was saying that because he was having a stressful week or maybe he really mean it but whatever it is, MT is, for all intent and purpose, dead unless stated otherwise.
The manga is saved though. Distributing the manga to the masses is another issue though.
There's no need for secret layers though, since it's just manga. Well, maybe for licensed stuffs but even then, it seems that only big name shounen manga like Naruto etc gets chased and fuck Naruto anyway.
Also, I'm guessing >>108940863 just meant the shared server system thingy, which I got to say, is pretty neat so who knows?
>Also, I'm guessing >>108940863(You) just meant the shared server system thingy, which I got to say, is pretty neat so who knows?
Yes that's what I meant.
Or maybe share manga in a huuuge torrent. And use selective download to only download what you want.
But once torrents are made, can they still be updated without users redownloading the torrent (and thus splitting people up)?

It actually just looks like a crapload of Yaoi and shoujo.
How exactly do these takedown notices work anyway? I mean, I see Ranma is on MT's list but you can get the manga just fine off BakaBT even though BakaBT adheres to takedowns as well.
If they ask, they take it down I believe. If you look at the list of emails, there were accounts with Viz email addresses on there it seems. I doubt they were there to download manga.
Pretty much. One guy SUPPOSEDLY was trying to help out with the archival process, got into MT's stuffs and noticed that MT has got really shitty security, shared the code on IRC, the other 2 hacked it and released the list of emails and passwords of all the users.
That's what I'm saying. I'm asking why would Viz employees need to download.
If you can see that a series is uploaded, you hardly also need to download it to then request it be taken down.
Why register at all, the Viz takedown email doesn't require a MT account.
What suggesting is that I'm sure that they enjoyed personal downloading for themselves as much as any body else.
It would help if they did more than one release once in a blue moon.
Doing research perhaps. I don't think it ever helped them. It's too bad those download logs are nuked.
Because it's not just about dumping the files and calling it a day. It's also long term planning, mainly organizing things properly for the future site and distribution.
For example, renaming all the files with the appropriating Daiz Naming Scheme™
>For example, renaming all the files with the appropriating Daiz Naming Scheme™
That's not going to happen for all of the MT archive for the simple reason that there's not enough information in the MT filenames to do that. There's no differentiation of magazine and tank scans, no chapter numbers for all volumes, no group names etc. It'd take an insane amount of manual work to do that all.
It doesn't have to apply to all the files. As long as there is some form of structure, some level of organization, then it'll do and yes, it's been mentioned there will be some level of manual labor involved, though I'm sure we can collectively contribute to reduce the overall burden.
Someone proposed the vote on naming scheme like in Sad Panda, so that might work.
It makes me wonder what other noteworthy digital releases there are. I would have never known about Phoenix's digital releases getting ripped if I hadn't check AB and saw the Phoenix request filled.
>using their Viz email addresses to sign up
Are these people serious? Hopefully Woxxy autobans anyone who does such a stupid thing. Maybe Viz email accounts just get redirected to a shitty manga wiki, like how Waffles does if you don't have an account.
Well, I've been wondering for a while why the last 2 or so volumes of Detroit Metal City went untranslated for so long, only to realize that Viz offered english digital releases for them and as far as I'm aware nobody ripped them so yeah, there's definitely a whole lot of others as well.
>saw the Phoenix request filled
You're not alone. I've seen a few people say that already. I managed to finally get my hands on the Case-DCP Blame scans recently. Someone should really make a catalog of all of them to be honest.
Is there a torrent site that those groups release to? I only saw Phoenix on some tracker I've never heard of that I got via Googling. I'm just following the weekly /co/ Hydra rip threads now. I suppose I should go look at what digital manga there are.
Yes, of course the files can be renamed from the original MT mess (who the hell decided that adding uploader id as the first thing was a good idea?) to something more sane with not to much effort but making it follow the Daiz Naming Scheme would be unrealistic.
Not really. The weekly torrents go up on all the main sites, but they die not that long after. Not all of them get much notice, mirroring and such. If you can use Usenet, you'd be somewhat better off it seems. ComicBT has some rips. Otherwise you're usually stuck searching for DDL. Was trying to navigate some DC++ hubs recently. Got a few things from there.
Chapter before volume. It works better for ongoing series and people are more likely to refer to specif event by the chapter. Especially when they were reading manga on-going, so there was no volume at the time.
We've been over this many times already. Chapter before volume means the files are always sorted correctly and it doesn't require you to guess volume numbers with magazine scans.
as unintuitive as it sounds, I support chapter before volume
-almost any multiple release manga will have chapters
-even if publisher doesn't give explicit chapter numbers you need numbering for multirelease stuff
-you will need chapter numbering when all you have to go off of is mag scans before tankoban releases
I guess this is why Daiz's proposed naming scheme seems logical to me
It's not complete. Only v01-v08. My upload is terrible though and currently occupied.
Viz's digital manga is actually much worse res and artifacting than Amazon, believe it or not.
The funny thing is that just buying the last two volumes used and scanning them will produce better results while costing the same.
Except you'd need to level them, so I guess there's that.
Any idea what resolution Viz releases their digital manga in?
I'm wondering if the people who find volume before chapter better use the month-day-year scheme.
I always used the day-month-year, and I used to find volume before chapter stranger, so I'm glad it's going to be changed.
For me it makes more sense to have what's more likely to change first so you can distinguish between to files even with truncated filenames.
>Viz's digital manga is actually much worse res and artifacting than Amazon, believe it or not.
What? Why would they be different? Don't they just sell it through Amazon as well?
Daily reminder of why a proper naming scheme is needed.
B&N seem to be upscales to 1200px from the one manga I tested. Although I couldn't de-drm it even after much effort. Probably since I had to gift it to myself to bypass regional checks. If anyone knows what quality Viz x Comixology is going with, that would also be useful information.
I think it's just that Amazon knows their priorities. My guess is that Viz lets them use the full resolution images, but they do what they want. Viz serves practically the worst because they really don't know shit. B&N seems to pretend it's serving reasonable images. And Amazon actually serves reasonable images.
What's weirder is the manga on the Google Play store thing. It looks like a mix of them. Some good, some bad. Some even physical copy scans for whatever reason. It appears to have a small watermark in the bottom corner though.
Two chapter 2's and v5'd chapter 4. I mean seriously, it's 6 fucking chapters.
Are the password/email hackers going to attack mangaupdates and some other prominent sites as well? I wonder if they can break into BakaBT and get the email/pass for that site too and post them.
It's not like that's what they were going for from the start. The circumstances just happened to align in such a way.
I got KeePass now anyway. Should have done it a long time ago.
Because of their historic yen system, you are actually more likely to find a oneshot there than anywhere else it so happens. I've managed to find a bunch of oneshots that only ended up on AB. Apart from that, nothing special.
Although AB's manga pool is smaller than BakaBT, it's quite unfair to say worse. There are times when AB actually had something BakaBT.
Speaking of which, AB had the complete cromartie manga while BakaBT hasn't updated theirs past vol.12.
I would probably upload stuff on BakaBT if it didn't require me downloading stuff on my account. Do I really need to have a bunch of things to my name in order to upload something?
and? i like to know when i am out of tank volume scans and moving onto slightly to significantly worse magazine chapter scans. you shouldn't be keeping the mag scans over the tank scans when volumes finish anyways, unless they are special cases like berserk where you have entire chapters redrawn.
all the single chapter scans then sort together, and all the volumes sort together without added fuckery like giving specials and omakes fake chapter numbers. ie volume 2 omake is now c12(fake chapter) 1x [volume 2 omake]
and dont even get me started on chapter numbering for series where the volume and mag chapter numbers dont match.
>i like to know when i am out of tank volume scans and moving onto slightly to significantly worse magazine chapter scans
Good thing our savior Daiz (and co.)'s scheme accounts for exactly that.
>and it's really no better than BakaBT.
Maybe for people who prefer bloat over sub quality. For example (only) AB has Rizlim's Softenni with AAC sound which is 3x lighter than one on "Placebo" bakabt.
Can you give me an example of how to farm rating there? What'ever I download ends up only with like 0,3 or 0,7 and nothing more.
>For example (only) AB has Rizlim's Softenni with AAC sound which is 3x lighter than one on "Placebo" bakabt.
Or you could get an actually decent release by GrimRipper on Nyaa.
>AB's offer is different, not worse.
Exactly. For some reason, a lot of anons just can't seem to accept the fact that AB is a complement to Baka, not a substitute.
Yeah, I use Baka more often but having an AB account is useful (and convenient) as well.
The DNU has a lot less effect on manga. While the anime might be removed, you're often likely to find the manga, even if it's licensed. Someone mentioned Trigun before. DNU on MT, but still on BBT.
Download popular 1080p (Freeleech) anime. Browse latest releases while logged off and log-in on the torrent page (if you have a new account).
That's what I did. I reached 20gb fairly quickly with Berserk, Jojo & 2 Ghibli movies.
Last known knowledge. The other 480GB were elsewhere.
The sheer number of pages in a tank scan would tend to tip you off.
Also statistics and heuristics. If there's over 100 pages it's pretty much a tank.
This requires deep archive scanning though which is as hard as turning your linear scan function into a recursive one. i.e. insanely easy.
Well deep archive scanning means if you find an archive inside an archive, scan the inner archive too. If it's page counting you're after, it's pretty easy.
Although if you're referring to something else then you may have lost me.
The whole point is to differentiate scans from a magazine vs scans from a tank. The number of pages doesn't tell you that. And I don't know what archives inside archives has to do with this other than being pants-on-head retarded.
The thing is, magazine scans are highly unlikely to be lumped together into one folder - they are usually archived into their separate chapters.
Sure, there may be a few isolated issues with the page counting solution, but is in most cases a very good way to determine whether something is a tank/mag scan.
>magazine scans are highly unlikely to be lumped together into one folder
Right, they're usually put in different folders. Archives inside archives is extremely rare these days and that's a very good thing.
It's still purely up to the whims of the person who repacked the volume. Even if there was some moderate percentage which was not, it's a huge pain in the ass with that many files.
Oh, okay. Like I said I suspected that you had lost me.
There are several algorithms you can use. I did a half-assed thesis on codecs years ago, but that was primarily directed at audio compression.
>prioritizing png over jpg (obviously)
>checking for low-quality jpeg encoding through header inspection
>comparing noise levels: crap scans will have a lot of that
>comparing high frequency components: overuse of median and poorly-selected noise filters destroys them
and some other methods which I have forgotten or didn't investigate because I was researching how to better encode not how to compare loss levels.
You will NOT be able to autodetect whether something came from a tank or not, but you can detect which scan has higher image quality.
Doesn't e-manga allow you to get credits for reporting scanlations? Considering most of the manga on there is yaoi, it's no surprise that all the fujoshi who paid reported the shit out of stuff.
Oh boy. I didn't realize CR updated Soredemo. I remember all the complaining that they weren't doing anything. There's 20 new chapters just now. I really hope there will be somewhere easy to upload shit like this.
Don't cbr/cbz which are basically the same as zip/rar support metadata?
I get metadata for cbr files in calibre, never tried editingit though. Only problem is you can't view that metadata in Windows explorer afaik.
I wish it had better page preloading, except no one wants to kill their own servers unwillingly I guess. When it is customized to use a preloader script, half the time it just fucks up entirely.
srsly its too hard to upload here????
>I would probably upload stuff on BakaBT if it didn't require me downloading stuff on my account. Do I really need to have a bunch of things to my name in order to upload something?
I went thru that when I tried to upload years ago and got an explanation. Knowing history also helps as the PU rating was implemented before the jury system. Statistically speaking, users with little experience upload torrents that have problems. They may upload degraded material (deliberately), have terrible initial seeding, have low bandwidth, or lose interest in initial seeding their upload after a few days have passed (abandoned). Thus, the PU rating protects the community from bad uploaders. Jury was added later on to deal with problems that PU rating wasn't able to prevent.
>Do people still support HS after what they did?
Most people don't care about ethics as you've seen in past /a/ threads already, so they would go to HS for anime.
Also, Horriblescans is still the only choice for some titles unless you subscribe to Crunchyroll. And for titles that other groups sub, you might wait 3 to 6 weeks longer to get the sub (that is STILL based upon HS's translation and HS's video). Even Underwater uses HS's subbing script and video as the basis for their re-encodes. When HS had a subbing error, Underwater also had that subbing error....
>mfw Mangatraders is never coming back and nothing equivalent is ever going to be made again
>bbt is autism personified, the the autistic moderators take ages to approve torrents
They are waiting for the torrent to be updated with the proper items. So the uploader has either abandoned their torrent (frequent) or the fansub group is taking their time updating their release. So, you can blame the jury process, but the fansubbers are no longer as numerous or speedy as they used to be, so wait times for fixes or propers will take longer or even forever because some subbers lose interest and quit a project. There's no magic number to tell you in how long to wait when you are waiting on the subber. YOU can go to the subbers' sites and post "Hurry up dammit, you are too slow" but subbers don't like those posts.
One example of a bakabt torrent stuck in the jury process - the subber in 2013 was doing a certain movie, thus the other subbers didn't bother duplicating the effort. That effectively made the movie a sole source. 2013 became 2014 and people like you blamed bakabt for waiting for an update. The subber lost their translator but didn't announce on their site! So the torrent waited forever for fixes with no one knowing. And people like me who found out didn't bother posting in that torrent why it was waiting or why no other groups were subbing it. AFAIK no other group is doing that anime so no new torrent has been uploaded. Sure, YOU blame bakabt for all these problems, but that is like you blaming the doctor for all your medical problems from smoking, heavy drinking, and meth use because he is conveniently there.
We all know it's CR's script, but when a group uses it, they are in effect claiming it is theirs. That 's how the copyright law works, and short of an alternate consistent definition, I will use that one.
"Blue" is the name of this hacker then? And he posts here?
I've been working like a dog this past week and a half, so I'm a bit out of the loop.
Do any /g/ents know how he did it?
If months go by and they delay the approval of x-groups release because they're waiting for y-groups release instead, it IS their fault. Stop acting like replacing an outdated or possibly inferior copy takes more than a few clicks. Stop acting like elitist faggots.
I could name at least one title subdesu-h finished, that erobeat claimed to be "working on" and that alone was enough for bbt to not approve subdesu's release. A release that was not approved for nearly two years while erobeat released NOTHING.
And I could name a few other titles that were not approved or delayed approval for a long time because no one single group released the entire thing on itself.
Buy hey, that's the fault of the subbers, right? I didn't think so.
My name is Blue. I am awake. I have your manga. There is also another full copy that someone else also has. Manga is saved. Literally and figuratively.
Many plans are spiraling around about what is going to happen. saki is leading the torrent creation. woxxy is planning a manga DDL site. I'm thinking of putting together something of my own as well.
Any other questions?
Do bakabt's mods still automatically rejected [Chihiro] on sight because they hate Kirsten?
they should have approved a subdesu torrent just so nobody would have the misfortune of having to go to that fucking awful, messy, probably virus-infected site subdesu runs.
yeah are you people working on organizing that shit better than MT did
Your highness fat niggerfaggot crapface the magnificent fedora neckbeard,
please tell us when we can expect the first MT alternative and whether shit will include licensed manga too.
>"Blue" is the name of this hacker then? And he posts here?
No. Blue donated $1800 to MT. But the hackers got access to the bitcoin donations, so his money was effectively stolen. MT later gave Blue direct access to the servers, and he could download everything.
Well, you'll have to use a different protocol then. What about TCP/IP over ICMP? Since ICMP packets are often allowed to bypass any protections that would allow everyone to download manga anywhere. Yeah, that adds useless overhead on the network you're connected to, but fuck network admins and their dumb restrictions.
Have you been here for the naming convention discussions? Just about everything is in the name of organization. However, the most important thing to us is distribution. As long as there are multiple copies of all this manga circulating around, everything's okay. Even if woxxy's site fails or if my idea bombs, nothing of value would be lost.
No, but seriously. I can not put any kind of timer on this. There's a lot of ridiculous shit to work on. The best I can do is toss things at people whenever I feel like. I might start up threads to distribute a couple volumes a day to impoverished manga readers in need. But don't expect a new solution to pop up too quickly.
>But the hackers got access to the bitcoin donations, so his money was effectively stolen
This is absolutely incorrect.
I have no idea what you're talking about, but I will write it down to discuss it with people who do know what you're talking about. Thanks.
>I might start up threads to distribute a couple volumes a day to impoverished manga readers in need. But don't expect a new solution to pop up too quickly.
Why not set up a list of torrents and just use a magnet link to post every tome someone requests?
More conventional and rational than fileshare.
>I have no idea what you're talking about, but I will write it down to discuss it with people who do know what you're talking about. Thanks.
Don't bother, it's a joke. IP over ICMP is a weird hack.
That's torrent creation as in a site and shit.
What i'm talking is just setting up a temporary magnet in request threads and not the uploading of actual torrent files to the Internet.
It still boggles my mind that people still share via fileshare in request threads and not simply through encrypted temporary magnet links.
I would like to thank everyone for all of their hard work in stealing from MT and saving manga.
It's a problem of the uploader not doing enough research into the torrent's material in the first place. The uploader just wants to upload something NOW as soon as possible.
In one sense, AB has a similar problem. I've seen in past 4chan threads where people brag about upscaling anime or audio just to have something different to upload to AB. Thus, a 320k MP3 on AB might have originally been a 128k MP3. The same with FLAC on AB.
I would eat you alive, boy.
You're ten thousand years too early to compete with me.
>I mean, I see Ranma is on MT's list but you can get the manga just fine off BakaBT even though BakaBT adheres to takedowns as well.
BakaBT will reinstate anime or manga titles when the license contract runs out AND BakaBT is able to find out about the contract. A lot of book printing contracts have fairly limited terms such as 3 to 5 years of printing. While that seems a long time to you, BakaBT has been around since 2003, so it has seen license terms come and go. The main problem is finding out WHEN the license expires as the company isn't normally going to tell you. It's to their advantage to make you think the license lasts forever. So BakaBT depends on its community to find out and tell them on their forums.
If you do know some of the "Do Not Post" list material licenses have expired, let them know.
>Baka-tsuki down because of Yen-Press
The below is from the Baka-Tsuki vs Yen Press thread:
>I've talked with them. It seems Yen Press is closing on them because of Index and they're thinking of a solution.
To Yen Press's credit, they had been patient a LONG TIME (years), but enough is enough. It is true that piracy decreases sales regardless of what 4channers say. Yen Press has actually been pretty kind in the past, so don't blame them though I suppose manga/book fans here are so spoiled that when Yen Press gives an inch, these fans demand 100 miles. Yen Press is part of a huge media company that would normally sue, so it is clear that Yen Press must have shielded Baka-Tsuki from lawsuits. So don't blame Yen Press. If you have to say something about Yen Press, you should be thanking them for shielding BT from suits because the parent is a lawsuit type company.
It pisses me off when they think that american audience is the only audience in the world. I'm not sure about yen press, but shit like cruchcyroll and others are not available in the 95% of the world, that's where sub grouops come in. The same goes with mangatraders or bakatsuki.
I'd personally just like access to the 1.6Tb magnet. I'm assuming each series is zipped in it's own zip/folder. I know it's not ideal but spreading fragments to a large swarm is better than what we have now right?
from B-T facebook page:
"OK we all know the site is down, the big boss has been notified. When he answers we will know what happened. Might be the normal error, might be him doing updates, only he knows.
The server is acting up, Baka Tsuki is not closed at all....so stop the random rumors.
And as you SHOULD know if the site is down, Baka Reader and the ePub Generator will fail since they read the site in real time to show the content.
So no more questions about this. When everything is fixed I or some other admin will give the notice the site is up again."
so cut your bullshit.

>Login with Facebook
Why don't you go kill yourself?
I actually think it's pretty sensible. Only thing I don't like is chapter number before volume number (and I still believe that most of the "problems" associated with putting volume number first can be solved easily enough with other means) but still I think it would be nice if a standard like that could be adopted by more people.
>and I still believe that most of the "problems" associated with putting volume number first can be solved easily enough with other means
Like putting chapter numbers before volume number?
"you prefer" isn't a reason to use something that will not sort everything properly and requires fixing and guesswork to maintain. Especially not when chapter first completely fixes all issues with sorting. Rename your files yourself if you want.
>Crunchyroll destroying the scanlation scene
The other alternative to Soremachi is that retarded kisumanga group. No, CR anime streaming may be shit, but CR manga is god send.
Unlike fansubbing, scanlation standards are generally pretty damn low that CR's actually decent.
>CR take down the group because of x manga
Like what? As far as I'm aware, groups like the one that did Yamada 7 stopped out of their own volition and not because CR forced them.
And Mangastream is still doing UQ alongside CR.
right here kiddos I got all of the mangas
Yeah, that doesn't look like a rapemobile at all.
First example in the xargs manual:
$ find /tmp -name core -type f -print | xargs /bin/rm -f
> Find files named core in or below the directory /tmp and delete them. Note that this will work incorrectly if there are any filenames containing newlines or spaces.
> Note that this will work incorrectly if there are any filenames containing newlines or spaces.
No clue if you're still here, but I'll check for it
>Baka-tsuki down because of Yen-Press
From Baka-Tsuki facebook
>Site is up again, according to our now secretary oni (he does no do anything else but rely messages to the big boss) cause was:
>"The short version is, kernel panic -> drive corruption -> some services failed to start. It's fixed now."
>If you dont understand that dont even bother asking what it is.
So Yen Press had fucking nothing to do with it.
>Mizu Wakusei Nendaiki
No such thing seems to exist on the database. Unless there is some kind of alternate name it goes under that you know of.
>I always used the day-month-year
ISO standard is YYYY-MM-DD and is perfectly intuitive.
I never actually thought of volume before chapter or chapter before volume until now, but the latter does make more sense just from looking through my folders.
They publish books in English. Since you are using an English imageboard, there is no issue with language.
Nearly every country on the planet can order books from other countries, it's pretty simple and there's no locks on paper books.
>For what? You mean the panic, the hacking or the tripfags? This is all scanlator shit, of course there's drama.
No, it is not scanlator shit. It is all of YOU consumers that are quick to blame, quick to attack, quick to assume the worst of people. Baka-Tsuki had some downtime in part of their front end which any volunteer-run site is allowed to have. Sure, you demand continual uptime as if they were a site whose staff were all paid $100K or more per year because you consider it your right to complain and abuse the staff for their free stuff. But the drama has been produced by the ranting or angsty people in this thread as well as the trollers taking advantage of the always-angry ranters to stir them up.
If you have a problem with the hacking, then you can just go visit the horriblescans site and complain about their hacking there. Be sure to be angry and rile them up. That way, they will release the SECOND HALF of the hacking which has the list of donaters along with their verification info: paypal, real paypal name, paypal physical home mailing address, paypal email address, etcetera. Go and rant and give them an excuse. Abuse them like you do the scanlators. You should unless you are a hypocrite not daring to do so out of fright. What's this? You only abuse people when you think you can get away with it? How cowardly YOU are.
What would be more funny is if HS released a few videos without the sub track and then swapped them out an hour later. People would go ??? is this my imagination? HS never guaranteed there was a sub track on their releases after all, so even without a sub track, their release would be at 100% quality level since there is no widely acceptable non-subjective judging standard for fansubs.
Well, I bought another 3TB hard drive to archive MT once the torrents come online. Hopefully, people will stay and seed instead of hit-and-run. If enough copies get out there, then the magnet/DHT approach to recreate a new distribution model for MT mk2 might have a fighting chance.
>been two months of not reading any manga
>time to catch up
from where do i get manga now, i don't like reading it online. i can still get some titles from the scanlator's page but not all of them have DD or even a website.
these are truly dark times
I'm sure most people use a cracked version. Or they use it on Kissmanga which is free. And then there are the idiots who paid for it. I've seen people here say it. I haven't done manga ripping in years though.
It takes a few lines of bash to rip from any online reader worth ripping from (i.e. the ones that serve original files) so I don't see any reason to use crap like that. I'd still rather have the original archives though.
>paypal donor info
well it's not my info so why give a shit?
But you do get the original files (assuming you're not a retard that gets it from mangafox and the likes).
>It takes a few lines
or you can have even lesser work since someone else has already done it for you so it now just take a few clicks.
>But you do get the original files (assuming you're not a retard that gets it from mangafox and the likes).
You should probable read what I wrote first before replying to it.
>or you can have even lesser work since someone else has already done it for you so it now just take a few clicks.
It takes less work to run the bash script to do that.
All good things must come to an end but to see MT go out like this is sad.
I get the feeling I'm going to need a lot more HDD space after this. As if my digital hoarding habits weren't bad enough.
This will never ever ever happen in the west. This would be a colossal waste of time and money.
I can only imagine a company trying to sue an /a/non. Stop being so paranoid and do it.
