Well that would at least make it possible. Even better, for me anyway, would be a way to execute an EXE and supply a filename to it. Then I could make my own EXE to do the combining automatically after a download. If I can do that from the script, that'd be great.

I don't think you're quite understanding... Here's the situation. I'll download a large multi-part RAR, so I'll have: MyVideoFile.part01.rar MyVideoFile.part02.rar MyVideoFile.part03.rar MyVideoFile.part04.rar MyVideoFile.part05.rar MyVideoFile.vol00+01.par2 MyVideoFile.vol00+05.par2 MyVideoFile.vol...

Auto-join multiple files (.001, .002, .003, etc)

I often run into binary posts where after Newsleecher (I'm using the latest beta as of Dec 8, 2012) auto-unRars them, I'm left with many "split" files that are numbered like so MyVideoFile.wmv.000 (this file is usually tiny and may be an info file of some kind), then MyVideoFile.wmv.001, MyVideoFile...

v5 Beta 13, still no stalled Queued files fix?

Finally a new beta release! I'm glad it's being worked on. But no mention of fixing this issue with stalled "Queued" files? If it would only just close out and save the incomplete file, PAR files would be able to fix them 99% of the time. But instead the Queued files just sit there and never finish,...

Re: Some articles (files) just stall in the queue

I have not had the problem since (for years) but I used this workaround at the time. Here is the thread: http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20213&highlight= :D I would like to say that Newsleecher has come a long way since then. I started using RnE a couple weeks ago and it REALLY WOR...

Some articles (files) just stall in the queue

I've been having this for some time now. I'll go to download something, and the same files, every time, will stall near their end (like 90%) and switch their status to "Queued". I see them in the Newsleecher temp folder (they're locked and deleted when exiting) and I have enough PAR files to repair ...

Still corrupt downloads in beta 24

I posted this in the beta 23 thread, but this one is much more appropriate. Was working with beta 24 today, testing it by having an 8GB download going (consisting of 97MB RARs) from Giganews... I was then looking at some other newsgroups, selecting preview JPEGs to see if I wanted to bother with the...

I'm about ready to, but since I didn't see anything in the release notes about a fix for such an issue, I assumed it wasn't fixed in 24 either.

Corrupt downloads

Still getting corrupt downloads in beta 23. I saw there would only be a couple more betas before a final release, so I thought I'd post this again. I don't know if it's the result of pausing and restarting downloads later, or trying to "open/view/download" an image while downloads are happening, but...

I've had more problems with Beta 20 than any other version. I get nothing but errors constantly. And the "search" has become useless. I'm able to use the SuperSearch pretty well, very few errors. My BIGGEST problem is downloading stuff. If I go in and start trying to arrange the download queue, it ...

Thanks jay. Isn't Smudge the programmer? Regardless, he posted a month ago, so there was *some* use of the forum by the powers that be. I can't believe NewsLeecher would be abandoned. Hell, I moved from crappy a$$ NewsRover and they've been developing that thing for many years. It's on version 16 an...

So is Newsleecher still being developed or what? There haven't been any new betas in months and there are definitely bugs that I and others have posted. Newsleecher has a LOT of potential if these bugs could just be fixed.

Corrupt downloads

Downloading from Giganews and I'm getting a corrupt files (~50MB files in today's batch) every once in a while. NewsLeecher marks it as bad by uppercasing the filename. It SEEMS to be happening if I try to reorder the Queue, but I can't be sure. VERY IRRITATING. The files on the server are fine, bec...
