Re: 8.0 Beta 4: some problems

Anyways, NL8 beta is far for usable. Forget using it on a regular hard drive with a fast connection, it's pausing so often that speeds drops to almost zero. Better stick to NL 7. As mentioned before, I can have this problem with a very fast NVME SSD drive, so NL 8 way to write on disk needs to be re...

Thanks to Yutaka Sawada and robena for such a quick resolution :D
Just 4 years, and one day after Yutaka was involved. :)

Re: 8.0 Beta 4: some problems

Yutaka Sawada was kind enough to gave me access to a test version that disable folder recursive search for verifying, and, so far, it seems to works with NL 8. Please don't ask for a link, it will be up to him to decide to keep the change and make it public. I just would like to point out that on on...

Re: 8.0 Beta 4: some problems

My solution is effortless: now that I made and associated my program to par2 files, all I have to do is double click on a PAR2 file, and it works as it worked with V7. V7 is too slow, it does not go over 200 Mbs. I have at the moment 400Mbs, and when I move in January, I will have a 10Gbs connection...

Re: 8.0 Beta 4: some problems

I made a workaround, creating a program that is associated to par2 files instead of MultiPar and that: 1) Creates a mirror subdirectory 2) copies the par2 file in the mirror directory 3) forks in 2 threads 4) thread 1 calls multipar over the par2 file 5) thread 2 enters an infinite loop and makes ha...

Re: 8.0 Beta 4: some problems

this already exists in Options > Client Behavior > "Dont search subfolders" but this option made no difference when I tried it.
That's for creating a PAR set. I was hoping for the same for repairing it.

Re: 8.0 Beta 4: some problems

Maybe an option for Multipar not to check subdirectories contents in auto-repair mode?

8.0 Beta 4: some problems

Hi, I just tested 8.0 Beta 4. Compared to 7 you can not: 1) Use WindowBlinds. Using a custom frame is always a bad idea. It may give an original look, but leads to plenty of problems. Better to respect the Win32 API standards. If you use WindowBlinds, you don't see the tabs ("Manager", etc) which ar...

Command line action problems

Using V8 beta4: 1) There should be a way to have a persistent command line program set up. Currently, you have to enable it at each download, it gets old. 2) %nl_default_download_folder% sends literally A:\a.b.h\<NAME>\" without substituting <NAME>, which is useless 3) %nl_current_folder% sends C:\U...

An humble request: please use modern import NZB dialog

NL7 uses the new directory dialog will all your favorites to import an NBZ file.

NL8 reverted for that to the old XP dialog. I'm sure it's just an oversight, it would be nice using the new dialog to go into the todo list.

Downloading to a subfolder with NL8?

Hi, With NL7, it's possible to set it so that importing a {name}.nzb file downloads into {download default folder}/{name}. I could not find a way to do that with NL8, it always download into {download default folder}. Am I missing something obvious, or is it a feature not yet implemented in the beta...

Re: nl_setup_80004 cannot be used with MulltiPAR

Let me know if you get an answer (and a fix!), thanks.
NL developer has been aware of this problem for more than one year, and never bothered to fix it. Since that does not happen with NL7, NL8 is locking files without any valid reason.

newsleecher 7 set to pause xx minutes pauses forever

I *think* it happened after I installed V8 beta4 on a different folder, but now, if I pause NL for 10 minutes for example, I don't see the countdown and it stay paused forever. Edit: I have installed on 2 PCs (one is a backup, I use it only on one at a time), and that does not happen on the second P...
