I think the simplest approach is to write a greasemonkey script and dump things browser level, but I don't think js supports batch downloads so you'd have to save every page manually I think

Another approach is to use nwjs but you have to find and copypaste the right parts of code

>>137567522
Yeah, I started writing a greasemonkey script but there's like seven canvases on the screen at any given time and I'm not sure how to tell which one has the actual pages I want without checking each one manually every time. Dealing with all that raw data also slowed my browser enough I thought it might crash, though there's probably ways around that.
>>
>Which mango has no updates for the longest time?

DQ: Emblem of Roto haven't updated in 10 years, no one picked up its sequel either
>>
>>137567968
The __draw function in draw.js seems to be responsible for drawing actual pages, ctx should always hold the right canvas object

Module.shuffle() is the emscripten compiled descrambling function which I don't know how to debug

You only need to locate the page flipping function and you should be good to go

Define "breaks". While they're hardly releasing at a torrid pace, etc/Hikaru no Go Translations hasn't gone more than a couple months without a release since 2003. Until this three month gap right now, that is

If you go by the 6 month gap that gets a group labeled inactive on MU, then it would be Nakama, followed by Lililicious.

Only Kadokawa does that. Other stores don't give a shit, OMD used to work for years with EBJ and all instances of it breaking probably weren't even intentional.

I think so that it would sound more cult-ish. I think in Japanese it doesn't need that emphasis. Also, he was translating from French.

Also, the world love bugs me, as it can mean both romantic and platonic love. I'd like the name to express that they are searching not just any love, but the universal love.

Society sounds plenty cultish, Pure Love Society especially sounds like a new age universal cult.

I don't own the tanks myself but after reading some sites, I only see instances of "secte d'Amour Véritable" (Genuine/True Love Cult) which is a translation for 実恋会. A literal translation of 真純実愛会 would be "Pure and Genuine Love Cult".

Aight guys, I concocted a very useful action for redrawing that helped me immensely, so I decided to share.
http://www.mediafire.com/download/4xz7pd9w9x3yrwa/Unholy_Transparent_Magic.atn

The set contains the original action I found somewhere (it works with the whole page) and two actions for selection with white/black background.
How to use: Make sure the page is leveled. Select anything you would like to see devoid of background. Run the action.

Speaking of actions, how do I go about making an action that would clean the bubble in one hotkey press? Just expanding/contracting selection doesn't work quite well.

What is the proper etiquette for dropped projects? About two months ago some translator dropped a project only 3 of 15 volumes in and ask that no one host or use his TL. My group is thinking of picking it up. Should we just straight rip his shit? Paraphrase? or start from volume 1?

If he posted his translations online then there's absolutely nothing he can do about it if you decide to use them, unless you had any plans on working with him in the future.

Is there any need for physical manga as a raw source anymore? By the time I finish reading anything new, the raw is already on nyaa. I normally just give stuff I have read away to friends or keep the ones I like.

It does not seem like it's worth the time and trouble to find someone to de-spine and scan them then. I'm sure by the time I even manage to read and ship them out someone has already scanned anything without a digital release. It's scary fast. Seems like unless it's some low key title it won't matter.

Maybe this makes me seem pathetic, but do you guys ever get worn out by making scanlations for people who don't even seem to care? Right now I've got a tumblr user who keeps going through all of my translations and telling their many followers how bad they are, though in most cases their "corrections" are totally wrong or about something minor (like, "I would have phrased this differently"). It's really making me not want to do it anymore because almost all of the EOP readers seem to think this idiot is right.

Actually I think they're butthurt because they used to do translations of the series but would go months and months without updating it until I started doing it.

Newb question about the scanning process. Is there a way I can fiddle with the scan settings (or anything else) to prevent the opposite side of the page from peeking through? Is there a better way than putting a black surface behind the pages? I scan on a glassbed at 240 dpi.

There's a speech bubble peeking through bottom left in pic.

Put better paper, or just get digital version.

Black paper is the only way to do it. If there's still problems it can't be helped.

You should scan at at least 300dpi, ideally 600.
