      Thanks for including the log. Interestingly, this issue seems to be affecting Korean users specifically. I’m not totally sure what’s going on, but you can find some discussion on the topic here. Feel free to contribute any useful information you might have!

    Can I combine chapters manually? I was trying to download from hentaihere and HDoujin wouldn’t add them all as one entity, but it did work separately. So now I’m wondering whether I can put them together manually

      I’m sorry, but I’m not totally sure I get what you mean. Do you want all of the chapters downloaded to a single folder?

      If you go to Settings > Save to > Chapters, there’s a setting near the bottom called “Download all chapters to a single folder”. This will combine all images under one folder instead of separate subfolders for each chapter.

      It seems to be working from my end, but you’re not the first person to report having problems.

      Could you go to Tools > Log Viewer, try to start a download, and then send me the resulting log when it fails?

      Tsumino and nHentai should both be working with the latest release provided that your module repositories are configured correctly. They should be okay by default, but you can read more about them here to be safe. These sites are also commonly blocked by ISPs, so note that if you need to use a VPN to access them in your web browser, you’ll need to make sure that it’s configured to work with HDoujin Downloader too.

      Looks like 9Hentai moved to a new domain, and I’ve updated the module accordingly. That one should be good to go too!

      If you continue to have problems, generate some log files, send them to me, and I’ll check it out.

      Yes, the license details are sent to the email address associated with your payment (if you use PayPal, then it’s your PayPal email address). Then you can enter them under “Help > Upgrade to full version”.

    It just suddenly resetted for me. All the doujins that I’ve downloaded before disppeared. And my settings are also reverted.
    And another thing, I usually set the folder names to “%TITLE%_%TAGS%”. But when it resetted, it only downloads with the ID.

      To be clear, your downloaded files disappeared, or your download queue? If all of your settings including your download queue got reset, then HDoujin Downloader must be unable to access the files where your settings are stored for some reason. The fact you’re getting gallery IDs instead of titles suggests that it’s not able to load the Lua modules from disk that it needs in order to parse the metadata correctly.

      With that in consideration, either the program is running under a different working directory (which can occur if you access it through certain types of shortcuts), or your AV software decided to stop letting the program read/write to/from the disk. Try whitelisting the program in your AV software if it’s no longer able to save settings. You can also access a backup of your settings inside of the “backups” folder, and import it using “File > Import Backup”.

    trying to use fur affinity and it seems to not download the nsfw images. I have my login info in settings and thought that work help, but it seems not to. How do I get this to work?

      Automated login for furaffinity.net has been broken since they started using reCAPTCHA on the login form. I’m tinkering with some possible solutions, but in the meantime, I’ve verified that you can add your login cookies manually to get it working. You can find instructions here: https://doujindownloader.com/copy-cookies/

      If you add the “a” and “b” cookies to HDoujin Downloader, NSFW content will become accessible.

      Nhentai is still working fine from my end with the latest release. Could you elaborate on the errors you’re encountering?

      If it seems to apply to galleries at random, it’s possible that you’re being rate-limited. Try setting the number of simultaneous downloads to 2 or 3, because making too many requests in a short period of time will often provoke Cloudflare into blocking them.
