Re: temp folder location in options...

I've noticed the ability to set a custom temp folder is now missing from the options. This is set in a .ini file outside of the application settings. You can read the details in the HowTo: Use an alternate location for the settings and temp directories FAQ thread. Thanks for pointing that out, but ...

temp folder location in options...

I've noticed the ability to set a custom temp folder is now missing from the options. This needs to be restored ASAP. NewsLeecher performs thousands of random small writes to the OS drive as it downloads the various parts of each article. If the primary drive is an SSD (Solid State Drive), this type...

yes but in this case it was an easy egg to fix. if the mouse scroll entry in the registry = -1, then scroll a page at a time. how hard can that possibly be to implement?

The entire explorer section was recently rewritten by Spiril since the old one wasn't being updated by the 3rd party anymore. A lot of the functions are still not available or working properly. These are known issues and will be addressed in a later version. these issues still exist - the explorer ...

I am using the standard logitech mouse driver software with a G5 gaming mouse. It was working properly right up until b11. b13 broke it it seems, along with the right click dragging mentioned in the other post (both were working fine up to b11). Scrolling works properly in the other NL tabs as well ...

3.9b13+14 improper full page mouse wheel scroll in explorer

NL 3.9 beta1 (RnE) improper handling of 'split' par files

some posts are single files that were split with quickpar (as opposed to rar volumes). these files are not properly handled by RnE - NL treats them as if all blocks are missing, which causes it to do the following: 1. all par2 recovery volumes are unpaused and downloaded (unnecessarily). this happen...
