Re: Graph and download bots no longer showing

I was able to duplicate the problem in V8 but not undo it there. However, I have V7 installed in a separate directory but using the same data and temp directories. I was able to fix it there, which also fixed it in V8. In V8, if you drag the size of the graph and bot list down to nothing, then try t...

Re: Dual board

Have you read NL's Site News for 9/7/2020? It covers this.

Bacnek Engine?

The 8/17/2020 NL news post says
SuperSearch has been down for some time, due to a bug in the bacnek engine.
I (kind of) understand what a backend engine is, but what is a bacnek engine? #-o

Re: Has the V8 beta died?

AmigaMan, You can use as many versions of NewsLeecher (V4 and later) as you want. Don't uninstall the old one or install the new one over the old. Install it in another directory. You can only run one at a time but you can close one and run another. I currently have V7 and 10 V8 betas installed. The...

Obviously, download one at a time and rename it.

Re: Has the V8 beta died?

I have V7 and several of the V8 Betas installed so that I can run the one I want. So far I've seen only one improvement over V7 but it's a big one: the ability to properly rename unscrambled files. I usually use Beta 3 because later ones try to save files to a directory named after the entire subjec...

Re: Can't exit

You should be able to close it with Task Manager. Either right-click the Start button (the Windows logo usually in the lower left corner) or press Ctrl-Alt-Del, then select Task Manager. Right-click on NewsLeecher.exe and select End task. For me, NL never asks whether to do group cleanup, it just do...

Re: No Bots displayed

There should be a double up-arrow to the right of the subscription message (Ready-To-Go for you) but I don't see it in the image you posted. If it's there, click it to restore the bot list (it will change to a double down-arrow). Or do Ctrl+Alt+H.

Re: Lost all subscribed newsgroups, saved searches, everything!

If you redirected your NewsLeecher Data and Temp folders by creating a newsleecher.ini file in your NewsLeecher program directory as described here , and if that file got deleted or corrupted, then NL would revert to its default location for them, giving you the symptoms you described. The default l...

I'm getting posts downloaded..but it won't unpack them. Even when I reload the pars, it just sits there. So now I'm manually doing it, but they're scrambled names. sigh
On the Unpacker tab (v8) or Extract tab (v7) do you have all of the checkboxes checked?

Re: Filter within retrieved list

They've changed it so that it's still available but in a much less useful way. There's no secondary filter as there is in v7. After doing a search with too many results you can add more filters to the primary search box and the result will be immediate. You don't have to search again. However, it do...

Re: Running NewsLeecher 4.0 on new system

You need a subscription to use the SuperSearch part of it. Unless you have another way to find what you want, SS is essential. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think the new Unscrambled capability requires SuperSearch, and that too is essential with the scrambling of nearly all posts. But that ...

Re: v8b5 UFR 2 - Need Scrambled/Unscrambled name displayed in Unpacker

This workaround may help. Go to Settings | Advanced Tweaks, find Download Descript.ion File Enabled (type "des" in the search box) and set it to True. That will create a hidden file called descript.ion with the name of each downloaded file and its Subject field as its description. Descript.ion files...

Re: Can I Specify A Date Range To Browse Groups

The only way I know to do that is to start downloading headers at the maximum age (300 days in this example) and watch the report of the age being downloaded. When it gets below the minimum (200 days), go offline. Then, if you like, you can delete the headers newer than 200 days. 7.0 Final has an ad...

Re: 8.0b4 - Could not create destination folder

I did a bit more research and found that the file naming error above was introduced in nl80004.ufr3 (12/09/2019). nl80004.ufr2 (12/08) uses just the title for the destination folder, as it should. That's between official betas 3 (12/05) and 4 (12/15). The error has continued through nl80005.ufr2, th...
