Re: Bug error and Connect button greyed out

Did you add a server to download from? On the Manager tab, choose Add Server and fill in the info. If you subscribed to the NewsLeecher server, it's news.newsleecher.com.

Re: Make last test version available for D/L

On 12/13/2019 Spiril posted a link to nl80005.ufr5.exe. However, I think he just made a typo because it was 2 minutes after the time that he posted a link to nl80004.ufr5.exe. On 12/16/2019 he posted the first link to nl80005.ufr1.exe in response to your report of an error in nl80004.ufr5.exe. To se...

Re: NL wonky GUI - fonts & width of boxes, tabs truncated & can't fix

Maybe I misunderstand what you're saying, but in Advanced Tweaks, Listview Font Size affects font size while GUI Custom Scaling affects all sizes. Maybe the right combination of the two will fix your problem.

Re: cant uninstall

You don't have to uninstall NewsLeecher to install a different version. Install different vesions in different directories and you can run whichever one you want, one at a time. They use the same Data and Temp directories (unless you point some but not all to different directories, which I don't rec...

Re: I keep getting the following error...

Since you've had the same error in v7, this answer may not apply to you, but a similar error was introduced in nl80004.ufr3 (12/09/2019) and continued in all later official and unofficial versions. The problem is that NL tried to create a directory named after the entire subject line, which sometime...

Re: Issue with leecher & nzbs

Don't replace v7 with the beta, install the beta in a separate directory. You can only run one at a time but they can use the same data files. Each has some advantages and disadvantages over the other. I haven't used NZBs lately so don't know if the latest beta can deal with them better than 7. I su...

Re: How do you limit to 50 to 75% of bandwidth ofn Newsleecher 8

I've never used the Speed Scheduler so I don't know if it works. I set my Internet Max Speed a little higher than it really is so that I could always get the maximum when I wanted it. If I want to reduce that (e.g. when also streaming online video) the easiest way is to drag down the speed setting t...

Re: AT which version did Newsleecher becomes a subscription service

I have just try Newsleecher 8, it does save the files in the proper file name. However, can anyone tell me why it also download all the PAR2 files? I thought in the older ver., the default is it does NOT automatically download the PAR2 files. Unless there is some sort of setting of the new software...

Re: AT which version did Newsleecher becomes a subscription service

1 quick question in case anyone can help: Would there be some sort of conflict if I install 2 different version of newsleecher on my PC? Say an older version along w/ Ver 8 Beta? No conflict in installing as many versions as you want, in separate directories, at least back to V7 and maybe earlier. ...

Re: AT which version did Newsleecher becomes a subscription service

I am still using ver. 3.8, 1) could someone tells me whether it's true that newsleecher has become a monthly subscription service? 2) also, I paid an annual fee to my Usenet subscription at XSusenet.com, do I qualify to get the latest ver. 7 or 8 for free? Starting with ver. 7 the program itself is...

Re: Beta V8 Count Button

It's still there. It just has an icon instead of a name: looks like an eye and a "#." But I recommend having V7 and however many V8 Beta versions you want installed in separate directories. 7 and 8 have their own advantages and shortcomings. I usually use V8B3 but go back to V7 when I want to downlo...

Re: Correct syntax for searching for poster?

Precede the poster's name (or partial name) with "Poster:" (without the quotes). If you don't find any posts, maybe there aren't any at least in the SuperSearch index. To prove it works, use it for a poster's name you know exists. Example: Poster:(SP)

Re: Download Speed

Also, how many bots are you using? In NL 7.0 Final, Manager tab, Edit Server, Bots. One bot would be slow. More would be faster, up to a point. The ideal number depends on many factors so just try different numbers to see what's best. Around 10 works for me. The bit rate reported by NewsLeecher will...

Re: What is the difference between WPA wpa2 and WEP? What is the best encryption to use in WIFI?

All of those have some security issues. WPA2 is the best of them and commonly available. WPA3 is better yet but not supported everywhere. WEP is worthless. Don't use it.

Here's one link that discusses WPA3 and earlier versions: What Is WPA3, and When Will I Get It On My Wi-Fi?

Re: Downloaded Files with no extension?

If you have a related par2 file, QuickPar might be able to recognize and rename them. NL should have a similar ability (V7: Repair, V8: Auto Repair) but it doesn't work very reliably.
