Re: new computer

That's really a question for the folks at NL to answer but I'll give it a shot. I don't know about the old 2.99 plan; what does it buy you? Use of the NewsLeecher program? SuperSearch? Access to NL's Usenet servers? Or all of the above? What version of NL is working on your old computer? With versio...

Re: What to do if SuperSearch seems to be down ?

Despite the status page's graphs still showing zero usage of SuperSearch, SS has been back up and working for more than a day. Maybe whatever collects the usage data isn't working.Either that, or nobody thinks SS is working so they're not using it.

Re: supersearch

I don't get any result. It got stuck on "Search in progress" (beta 2), no erros just nothing seems to be happening If you're talking about 10/18, the date of your post, SuperSearch was down most if not all of the day. At first the web site was down as well but that was soon fixed. Both are working ...

Re: Password protect rars

The only passworded files I've bothered with lately are d@mn.dmca's posts, and NL V8 Beta 2 handles them as it should. Those PWs are strictly numbers, so maybe B2 has a problem with letters?

Re: Configuration got rolled back some how?

It sounds like when you ran NL after the crash, it couldn't find your configuration files so it created default ones in the default location, as though you were running it for the first time. That could happen for several reasons. The default location (for Win 10, anyway) is C:\Users\<username>\AppD...

Re: Unpack issue/question

On the Unpacker page, make sure all the checkboxes are checked. Also, noblemd has posted that "In Advanced Settings - If Download Pause While Repair & Extract is set to True downloading is disabled."

Re: An application Bug has Occurred

The first thing to try is to upgrade to 7.0 Final, which came out a few years ago. I upgraded directly from 4.0 so I never used 5.0 and can't say if the problem you're seeing is a common one. I rarely got error messages with 7.0. When I did, they were usually related to downloading more headers than...

Re: de-obfustication idea/request

It doesn't rename the .rar files but after they're downloaded, verified and repaired if necessary, the Unpacker creates a directory with the file's real name, assembles the pieces and saves the resulting file(s) to it, also given their real names. It's automatic. I'm not aware of any setting that wo...

Downloading Headers in Browse Groups

In the Browse Groups tab of NL8b1 (Articles in NL7), if I tell it to download a certain number of days of headers (e.g. the most recent 2 days) it takes a long time to find the range to download. By contrast, NL7 took a second or so. It seems like NL7 does a binary search but NL8 does a linear searc...

Re: Is it possible to add a feature to Newsleecher v8?

Are you running V8 Beta 1? Because it does exactly what you asked for (and it's the most obvious improvement over V7).

Re: de-obfustication idea/request

No reason to run the unofficial beta now since an official one has been posted. There are several links to it but one is the 6/25/2019 post in the News & Log tab of NewsLeecher. I recommend installing it in a separate directory from NL 7.0 Final because, while it renames the deobfuscated files after...

Re: Side by side Install with 7?

Yes, it works well. I currently have 7.0 Final and 8.0 Beta 1 installed in different directories and I can run either. One at a time, of course; I assume running both at once would cause conflicts. I do use newsleecher.ini to redirect the data and temp files as described by noblemd to simplify acces...

Re: "Sampled" articles - only partially downloaded from Superleech

Like you, I have a Ready-To-Go subscription, so also using Newsleecher's servers. Using NL 7.0 Final, I searched for and found a file with the exact same name as in your previous post. All details the same except the posted size was slightly different: 3,247,787 KB instead of 3,245,282 KB. I downloa...

Re: Speed question

On my HTPC I'm getting a little more than the 75 Mbps I'm paying Verizon FiOS for. That's using either NL 7.0 Final or 8.0 Beta 1 UFR5 and Newsleecher's servers. I also got full speed back when I used Giganews and NL 4.0. I've played with the number of connections, currently using 9. I've limited he...

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

I don't know where Fixxxer found a beta, but as I posted in another thread of this forum (Wishlist for Santa/New version?) I got unofficial forum release #4 (ufr4) from the NewsLeecher site, using a link posted by Spiril back in January. That's about as official as an unofficial release can get. And...
