    trying out this but it keeps saying write issues even though i have tried running as admin, does the program bug out when it is located to a different directory other than C:? I have it in D: drive instead.

      Ok tried giving every single .exe admin rights and full R/W access. Still the same issue. I think HDoujin doesn’t play nice when it is located to a different physical drive. W10 22H2.

    Get a failed to update error despite running in admin mode while trying to DL this for the reader, is the server down?

      No worries, I understand what you mean. While Kuroneko Reader is equipped to open folders, as you noticed, it doesn’t handle individual files. However, I agree that this is perfectly reasonable behavior to expect. I’ve been focusing most of my development time on HDoujin Downloader lately, but I can add this to my to-do list.

      If you look under “Help > Check for Updates”, you’ll see a “Download Now” button near the bottom. Clicking this will launch the updater, which will proceed to download the modules and save them in a “modules” folder in the same directory as the main program.

    Hey there, I have a feature suggestion, could you perhaps make it so we could use unlimited scroll? I mean just like when reading a manhwa/webtoon. So the images in the archive will be ordered from top to bottom, thus you can read it continuously.

    Anyway, thanks for your hard work.

      On the menu bar at the top of the reader, there’s a drop-down menu at the right. In addition to having options for the image size, the bottom three affect how they’re scrolled. The last option, “All Pages”, will enable infinite scroll!
