    Is anyone else having the problem that where the program converts the saved files into .rar or .cbr and they are corrupted and unusable?
    I’m not sure if I have some settings wrong? I don’t know how long this has been happening.

      RAR conversion is performed via WinRAR, so the resulting archives should be valid. It’s possible that there might be something wrong with the images or the reader you’re using to access them. It’s worth checking if the images are intact (if not, the support module for the site in question may need to be updated).

      If you let me know what reader you’re using and provide an example URL, I’ll check it out. If you want, you can also provide an example archive.

      check the image individually,, sometimes you just need to change its file extension from .png to .jpg; or .jpg to .png, to fix them.. (and entirely, they’re not corrupt).
      it could be solved by using image conversion feature, but it needs more time, and sometimes their size are bigger than before conversion.

    On E hentai the group nel-zel formula will not upload to the program. The website , whenever i upload one of their album it comes out galleriesXXXXXX the Xs are number from the url and the progress is 0/0. (i have a screenshot if you want to see it )

      Is the issue specific to URLs associated with that group? If you send me one of the URLs in question, I’ll take a look at it and see if I can reproduce the issue.

      As for the problem with hitomi, it sounds like HDoujin Downloader is unable to access the site (when it can’t get the gallery title, it uses the gallery ID instead). If you normally need to use a VPN to access the site, you’ll need to make sure that it’s configured to work with HDoujin Downloader, too.

    most manga title use “|” to separate japanese title and english title. so i use “│”(alt+179) to replace it. in replacement word option, i cant type “|” ’cause the system not allow this character. it same goes to “/” replace “⁄” and “?” replace “?”.
    its there other option to set it?

      What version of the program are you currently using? The find-and-replace feature used to work exclusively with regular expressions, where these characters have special meaning and aren’t interpreted literally. As of Release 299, literal matches are now the default, so you shouldn’t have a problem entering them so long as you leave “Enable regex” unchecked:
