Obfuscated file re-naming fix

Post by Eric10301 » Mon May 13, 2013 8:51 am

Are we going to be seeing this soon? It should have been a pretty big priority and fixed a long time ago.

In relation to files that Newsleecher is incapable of re-naming on it's own. I know you guys mentioned it months ago but nothing has happened. The obfuscated postings have been around for quite some time now and having to open up quickpar and leave it running as files are downloaded is kind of annoying. Especially when files end up broken or when it involves tv series posts.

To further expound on the series postings, if a series is posted with obfuscated file names often times the file names end up repeating. So let's episode 1 is named 989-0, episode 2 is 989-1, and episode 3 is 989-2. The problem is, and this happens a lot, episode 4 might also be named 989-1. This causes newsleecher to throw a fit because it thinks you are adding the same files again because they are named the same. So what you have to do is add each post as the previous one is finished downloading so you don't run into problems.

We're looking into that atm. It's not an quick fix though, because we have to rewrite a large part of our native PAR2 handling library to get it done.

I assumed it wasn't an easy fix but at the same time it isn't exactly a new problem. Hopefully we see something soon.

This is a fix we need.

I know other clients handle it with ease.

and with NL charging for each new update, it's looking that it could be time to change clients

It's a shame so much dev time is being spent on superleech, a feature that is becoming more and more useless in today's environment, when this is something we need now.
