So, how about this?
Isn't this a possibility to rip all those manga that are only available on Bookwalker? Like, if worst comes to worst and we are never able to access their DRM ever again, it's possible to setup an auto screenshot program + an hotkey to save all the pages in a pretty ok resolution, depending on the monitor used.
Or am I missing something? I thought people would be more excited about this.
If something is already being planned I'll delete this message, just say so.
>>

>it's possible to setup an auto screenshot program + an hotkey to save all the pages in a pretty ok resolution, depending on the monitor used.
Isn't there a bookwalker ripper working currently?
>>
>>138702860
How about Terra Formars. I think we'd all like better scans for once.
>>
>>138705447
I thought that didn't work anymore. And even if it does, my point still stands.
I saw absolutely no posts about this offer. I thought people would be more excited at the prospect of all those series being finally available.
>>
>>138705495
Isn't that just the English releases though?
>>
>>138705495
I don't know, I never bought from bookwalker so I was asking. But at any rate, the offer seems only usable for the english releases. Or can it be usable on japanese releases as well?
>>
>>138705529
Even so, there are quite a number of series that are available there.
All of Cobra, Crime Edge, Tsumanuda Fight Town and a lot of other titles.

Is there a way to fix the greasemonkey script? I tried, but I'm only a beginner and couldn't figure out the parts that need to be changed.
>>
>>138709104
Forget the greasemonkey script, what we need is a way to distribute the actual fix.
>>
>>138709104
They obfuscated draw.js and you still end up with watermarked images if you dump straight from the canvas.
>>
>>138709411
Never ever distribute it on the public place so jpn ebooks stores can't take measures against the rippers.
>>
>>138709470
No wonder I didn't understand what was wrong. Meh, sucks.

>>138709411
I doubt they'll ever find a way that's secure enough and yet somewhat accessible. I'm only reading a few series and the script was good enough for me. That's why I tried to fix it.
>>
>>138709712
I'm not posting it anywhere, it'd just be nice if more people were able to use it. I can only buy so much myself
>>
Once stores start using HTML5 EME we're going to enter the DRM hell. Just sayin'
>>
>>138709818
Well, that's your problem for not posting it anywhere.
People would also buy more if they had it.
>>
>>138710106
And if it were posted all over, stores would change their DRM and then no one would be able to get anything.
>>
>>138710161
If you're competent enough, you simply fix it and distribute it again.
This has always worked until people stopped distributing their method(s) since they don't want to bother fixing it again.
>>
>>138710230
No one wants to rewrite and redistribute a DRM ripper every two weeks
>>
>>138710284
That's a wrong accusation. If I had the know how, I would do it.
I wouldn't make a site or some shit to distribute it, but I would leave it here on /a/.
>>
Private distribution doesn't help much when it only takes them to know that someone wrote a tool to change shit around. In an ideal world the existence of the tool would have to be kept private.
>>
>>138710423
They already know that people have it and still don't change it so often.
There's absolutely no way to stop that completely.
In an ideal world, there wouldn't exist any kind of DRM in the first place for shit you actually buy.

It depends on what era you're aiming for. I like to use a font called Apple Kid, which is based off SNES-style games. 8bitoperator is good for an older, thicker look.

>>138724663
Normal Japanese text is pretty bland but I get where you're coming from when it comes to dialogue with brush. I switch between 3-4 similar brush fonts for those occasions, with some text warping.

Which Japanese eBooks stores are they having with very good quality of images for mangas? bookwalker? ebj?
>>
>>138742131
EBJ is probably the best.
Easiest to rip is most likely Rakuten.
And bookwalker is probably somewhere in the middle, but there's no ripper. At least not a shared one.
>>
>>138742131
It seems to vary a lot. I've checked pretty much every digital store for a manga I want to buy and ebj is the same amazon (which have aliasing) but blurred.

Now the problem is that without ripper, you're shit out of luck and have to go with the easiest store to rip even if it means terrible x1200 raws.
>>
>>138742186
>>138742288
No, I just would like to know about best resolution of images with stores. No worry about an ease of ripping for them. Anyway, thanks.
>>
>>138742518
That totally depends on the publisher as well.
You can't really pinpoint that.

>>138742518
I would worry about that, though.
Not ripping them and simply taking screenshots for example reduces the quality.

I'm looking into buying some books and providing scans in the future, however I'm going into this knowing I'll have to basically destroy the books to get quality scans.

Is there a good guide on cutting the books properly without potentially destroying the actual art?

Does it matter what scanner you have? Or is it more about the settings? I have one of those printer/scanner hybrids and don't know if they'll be any good for this.

How risky is it importing ero doujins? Some of the stuff I like has subpar scans and I wanted to hopefully track them down at some point and make new ones.

It's literally everywhere, how about you use google for once?
>>
>>138741538
ouch. my condolences, anon.
>>
>>138744045
No need to cut anything. You simply heat up the glue and the pages will separate really easily.
I'm personally using a hair dried, a heat gun or something should be better but not everyone has one.
As for the scanner, just test it. I personally prefer a CCD sensor, but the majority of the newer, affordable ones are CIS.
Default software is mostly shit and gives you almost zero customization, go for VueScan or something similar.
Depends on your country.
>>
>>138744472
>>138744045
A hot water bottle works as well. And some raw providers use an iron, the over or the microwave to melt the glue. But I would be a bit careful with those methods.

It's mostly only light novels from authors I liked.
Everything from Kawakami that's available digitally, including the manga, some Sakaki Ichirou.
I have some of that ripped while it still worked, and some not.
Planned and planning to get more but I stopped temporally until I get the means.

But they are pretty expensive. I'm not sure it thy are woth it when one volume is usually somewhere between 400 and 800 yen.

They changed the way light novels work recently, even the fixed ripper can't download those.

So there's only rakuten left, I guess.
But I don't want to buy from there.

The thing is, those fonts doesn't look good on big scans, much less when letters themselves big too. I used fonts like in № 1, since they kinda look similar to original (menus notwithstanding), but people/translator asking to change it to "rpg-like font", hence № 2.
I myself still like № 1 more...

Don't know what to tell you then. In my opinion, it should match the original regardless but if they want it to look RPG-like, I guess keep looking until you find something.
When I did this chapter, I just went for the first old RPG font I found that had all the characters I needed, worked well enough.

You can either fill the gaps with the pen line. Make sure to overlap the both ends and then blend it overlaps together by using a low opacity eraser.

You can also redraw the entire line and use the rectangular marquee tool to give it the triangular shape, and then use filters to soften it.

You can clone the gaps. You can also clone entire speedlines and rotate them to fit.

Also, sometimes the other half of the panel has entire speedlines. It's really circumstantial, but I've gotten away with duplicating the other half of the panel and flipping it.

Because they obviously changed something server-side. Either in the URL, unscrambling method or something else. How is that hard to understand?

The Ponent Mon release A Patch of Dreams has "y" instead of "and" on one page. Makes one wonder if all their English releases are translated Jap->Spa->Eng; it's primarily a Spanish publisher and that's certainly a Spanish/English mistake.

The editors at Shogakukan can't count.

I keep meaning to read that but the magazine scans are so bad. Are there volume raws yet?

The goodess has volumes 1-3, but I can't find any for 4 and 5.

Some individual series get uploaded, they just don't upload the full issue.

Here's the preview for next month.

It was actually quite fun to translate, and a nice change of pace, looking forward to the anime now because yay werewolves.
I'm gonna go back to working on my usual stuff for now but I'll be around here sometimes so who knows

Forget which page it is, but an English volume of Noragami has the text outside a bubble and left another one completely blank.

If I want to buy a manga from Rakuten or EBJ, after I bought them, how do I strip the DRM?
Is it the same with Amazon manga (With calibre's DeDRM) or should I use something else?

Is there anything more I can do to make this look better? I would want to make the lines softer somehow, but blur fucks it up totally.
>>
>>138795760
Your example works for Rakuten since they use Kobo.
For EBJ you have to beg those with access to the chink tool to share it.
>>
Can I resize selection box somehow in PS?

>Is there anything more I can do to make this look better?
I'd be surprised if you could make it look worse. That couldn't be more overleveled if you tried.
>>
>>138795780
Try from scratch again and don't level it into oblivion.

>>138796022
You don't. It's already leveled.

I guess no progress with Yukibana no Tora raws? volume 2 was just released
>>
>>138796143

That's what happen when you have slow-ass generals which last all week, and stay up all the time.
