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...

Re: No headers show in Browse Groups Tab

I've found that for all versions of v8 so far. When I set it to download headers for more than one group at a time, it actually downloads only the final group. All the others are blank. Another possibility is that the recently introduced spam filter thinks all of the headers in certain groups are sp...

Re: 8.0b4 - Could not create destination folder

I too have seen the "Could not create destination folder" error. Currently using 8.0b5ufr2. The problem I see is that NL tries to name the folder with the entire subject line. If the subject line has a description and a title, with the title in quotes, that will prevent the folder name. There might ...

Re: Super Search is buggered, no posts over 25 days

Except for some occasional short-term outages, including right now (message: the SuperSearch engine is being restarted), SuperSearch has returned all the posts I expected. My only disappointment is that a 1-day search with restrictions such as unscrambled, 1080p only and -XXX -HEVC still sometimes s...

Re: rar extract error -not enough disk space

Is that 145 GB available after the rars are already downloaded? Because they'll take up at least 70 GB and they won't be deleted until the archive is extracted, so a total of 140 GB. And there might be temporary files that bring it over 145 GB.

Re: extract with deobfuscated name

What version are you running? All versions of v8 beta will do that, provided you have all the check boxes on the Unpacker tab checked. V7 won't do that but you can do it manually by right-clicking on the header, selecting More, then Copy:Subject. Paste that into a text editor, copy the actual filena...

Re: Not Recognizing <Group> Parameter?

I'm also seeing the error reference to the download path a bit differently, as if there's a carriage return after "E:", with the rest of the path listed below it... and with the first letter of the path truncated. The path should read "E:\news\<Group>\ Capture.JPG Apparently it's interpreting \n as...

Re: NewsLeecher V8.0 Beta 3

Agreeing with the aforementioned comments, deprecating the download/unpack folders - subfolder - <GROUP> and <PAR2 Name> functionality in v8b3 was a poor decision and renders newleecher a marginally useable tool. Please restore the functionality or post a script that allows graceful rollback to the...

Re: V8 Beta 2 drop down bar will not stay

You probably removed the context menu by clicking on the double up-arrow icon on the right side of the context menu. To bring it back, hover over the tab to make the context menu reappear, then click on the icon that is now a double down-arrow. Of course, when moving the mouse pointer to the icon, y...

supersearch.deobfuscated Name Change

I wondered why searches for the phrase "supersearch.deobfuscated" (without the quotes) suddenly didn't find anything. Finally I found it had been changed to "unscrambled." It is good that they shortened it. It would have been even better if they had mentioned it.

Re: new computer

That's really a question for the folks at NL to answer but I'll give it a shot. I don't know about the old 2.99 plan; what does it buy you? Use of the NewsLeecher program? SuperSearch? Access to NL's Usenet servers? Or all of the above? What version of NL is working on your old computer? With versio...

Re: What to do if SuperSearch seems to be down ?

Despite the status page's graphs still showing zero usage of SuperSearch, SS has been back up and working for more than a day. Maybe whatever collects the usage data isn't working.Either that, or nobody thinks SS is working so they're not using it.
