What manga are you typesetting/translating/ripping?
Have time to help?
Need help on anything related to scanlation or want to request scanlation? Post here.
>want to request scanlation?
It'd be nice if Ib -Instant Bullet- could have its pace picked up.
It's 9 chapters behind the raws, and no one scans the raws either. I want more doses of fake edgy.
There a firefox addon that worked.
Try to search it on archive.
Anyone want to work on Daigo Umehara the manga?
>There a firefox addon that worked.
From Bookwalker? Bookwalker is an app installed on your phone or PC. The most they keep on their site are short previews. How would a Firefox addon rip Bookwalker stuff?
It only goes up to 2010 though so it doesn't cover the rise of topaz spam, the chink scene never learning how to use it properly and affiliated English groups like RH being almost as shit at using it as them.
>As far as I can tell, it's not trivial and I see no immediate method of doing so.
Well, someone into coding just has to figure out where Bookwalker keeps the file on your computer (or download it somewhere if it doesn't), decrypt the file so it doesn't need the stupid bookwalker app, and extract it.
The problem is most English coders don't into Japanese and not many coders give a shit about giving LNs they paid for to the barely 40 people who would care for free.
Damn, and I wanted high res images without missing shit in the middle or shit paper ;_;
There's more than LNs in bookwalker.
>There's more than LNs in bookwalker.
To make a good point. Why is that I mostly only see LN screencaps from Bookwalker and hardly ever manga ones?
I download basically everything that comes out, so I should know.
It's not really the coding that is the problem. I don't think you understand the complexity of what is involved here. Finding the file is easy. But how are you supposed to decrypt the file if you don't know how it was encrypted? At worst, you need to be able to sift through masses of assembly or byte code. There may be even worse alternatives.
>Most you can do is screencap from the windows application.
Is there an easier way to screenshot the shit? As far as I know, you can screenshot something bigger than your monitor, and to get a good resolution, you'd have to do multiple screenshots and piece them together.
You can use most screenshot applications. The problem is let's say there's a spread you want to cap at 5000x3500 or whatever, odds are you monitor isn't that resolution, so you can't screencap at full res.
Which means you get to play a puzzle minigame of piecing the shit together.
>Which means you get to play a puzzle minigame of piecing the shit together.
Yeah but I'm pretty sure that would take a lot less than the time I spend redrawing spreads together.
Does anyone of you know where to download the World trigger volume 5 and 6. In my Country using torrent would get me fucked so i Need aoneclickhoster I found the raws but the had manga-Zip watermarks
>Try to downsample your resolution and use stuff like greenshot.
I tried searching for something like downsampling before but didn't know of the proper technical term, so I couldn't figure it out. I'll have to toy with it at some point.
That said, I'm always afraid to do shit like that. As in if my computer for whatever reason, despite reassurances, will not like me upping the resolution to all hell and will lock up every time it loads.
The cover? Bookwalker hosts covers and several sample images for the vast majority of their content. Which you can downloads normally without any hoop bullshit with any browser.
I can't imagine it being of any use for the app.
10th Mystery used an ADF scanner that was like $4000 that was pretty good, if I recall.
Or if you want to spend more time and less money, a $60 flatbed will do just as well quality-wise.
Let's say redrawers then.
I'm working on Wakako-zake, it's not exactly hard and the chapters are extremely short (most are 4 pages long) but goddamn I can't be bothered to clean all that text over the backgrounds.
>not working with layers
Who the fuck doesn't work with layers? Any idiot can pirate Photoshop and learn to use it
I'm always so surprised when I see shitty left-aligned comic sans MS Paint scanlations. Who the fuck thought they were good ideas?
Yeah, that's what I do usually but I'm pretty much a one-man group except for translating and QC so I burn out pretty easily when I do stuff I don't like, and I hate doing that.
>Who the fuck doesn't work with layers?
I don't know man, but we are on /a/ that's why I wrote that. Autist are everywhere.
>I see shitty left-aligned comic sans MS Paint scanlations. Who the fuck thought they were good ideas?
>not using paint to make an ice-cream cone
>I am trained in gorilla redrawing and I'm the top typesetter in the entire US scanlation force
>Can't even fucking turn anti-aliasing on
>Tell them to fix it
>STOP BEING SO ENTITLED
Or just use google. Files are hosted on slow hosts but at least they're alive. From what I've seen many new raws are terrible digital garbage though.
