Question about MMCE
How to set it to open images inside subfolders without displaying the thumbnails first?

for example,
/folder1/folder2/image.jpg

I want to simply right Click folder1 to show image.jpg

Does any one you have any experience using eManga (electronicmanga)?
I just stumbled upon it yesterday. It seems to be pretty good.
This also allows you to download your manga library into your ipod/iphone.
Let's see if reading manga is something that I can be done off my iphone too. ;)

I downloaded a while ago, it looks pretty cool but I can't get it to read anything except the stuff that you can download from them :sob:

i use comicsviewer, by jian ma

Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

found it once on a chinese forum. i used to use hikaru viewer from toriyama world before that, but comicsviewer really was just far superior to it, so i shifted with little difficulty.

i just did a google search in the attempt to link a download, but i surprisingly couldn't find one as easily as i had thought. didn't realize comicsviewer isn't more widely distributed.

I'm using manga reader v1.5.3.
The only one I've been using and am pretty satisfied with it.
rar and zip are no problem.

For now I use ComicRack on my laptop.

But does anyone use an ereader or a tablet Pc of some sort ?
Thinking of swithing to one of those, but :

- no color on ereaders for those few color pages ...
- tablets Pc seem expensive, and might not work in sunlight too good.

Personally, I use ComicRack (http://comicrack.cyolito.com/) to read comics and manga. Works like a charm.

Did somebody test the new ebook readers ?
I'm thinking about Amazon's Kindle.

Is it possible to read manga on this ?


great question, I looked into it and yes you can, but you have to hack the damn thing and I'm not sure the kindle can display colours, so if you have any colour pages it will probably just display it in black and white.
this is what I found:
   
Picture viewer

    I’m not sure why Amazon didn’t make it public (maybe because paging is kinda slow), but there is a basic picture viewer in Kindle.
    To activate it:
    1) make a folder called “pictures” in the root of Kindle drive or SD card. Kindle also checks for “dcim” made by cameras.
    2) put your pictures for a single “book” into a folder inside that. The subfolder name will be used as the “book” name. Supported formats are jpg, png, gif.
    3) in Home screen press Alt-Z. A new “book” should appear. Open it to view your pictures.
    4) In the local menu you can toggle dithering, resize to fit and full screen mode.”

=====

I’m not sure if it’s the “make a folder” part, “put your images” in it part, or the “press Alt-Z” part that requires too much technical knowledge… *cough*

I used to use CDisplay, until I found Manga Meeyaa. Absolutely the best, in my humble opinion. :mlfy:

I don't know if it'll be useful, but this is MM 7.4 with my (crappy) english translation (available *.exe lines only, no sources, sorry): http://www.filesend.net/download.php?f=6e01f681463286aefb0dbd8e0023f8ca

EDIT: and sorry for the double post :P

You forgot to check the Asian languages in your Windows configuration.
Yeah, I know ^^ but if I'm not wrong it wasn't on installation cd and I'd never downloaded from microsoft pages... on the other hand strange symbols or japanese (chinese) words are the same thing for me :P (even if I am tempted to download it in order to recompile MM in my own langague... maybe... I've already lost about three hours of my life ).

Well... reshacking MMCE *.exe I saw that software interface is different from MMeeya (no wonder it's impossible to set an hotkey), on the other hand I thought it's quite impossible that there's not a rotation command in the extended software version (even if you can see it in Tools-Avisinth___P [don't know what it is really displayed]), so I've tried the previous version (7.3, a little buggy on the interface visual side) and, WTH, it works... then there are two options, I'd locked something when I made random tryings or it is a bug of v7.4 (CHT), the second one probably...

Well, I hope it'll be useful for who wants to try the extended version... thanks a lot for your answers guy ^^

PS: I almost forgot... I've not understand "pre reading" yet :P

use lancosz3 filter instead of linear interpolation. also the image was saved in 24bit mode instead of standard 16bit, causing problems with the colormanagement. but only 1 of thousand groups are that dumb to release in 24bit, so those releases are very rare. its really no drawback.

I don't remember clearly where it is, but it's in your Windows options.

Here is a picture that exposes two problems in MMCE:



The first problem is that the picture is RED (in Irfanview, it's correctly rendered).
The second problem is that the antialiasing is super shitty.

That's the problem, english version doesn't work on Win98, I've installed the chinese one... so I can't read a single word (by the way, many words aren't displayed at all...); I've tried randomly (wth!), but nothing at all... I can't find the right window to set the key.

This is a screenshot:

simply custumize a key for rotating.

Maybe (surely :P) I'm a noob, but I can't find a real tutorial there, just the release entry, oh well... I'll read comments and maybe with hotkeys description (great) I'll be able to set an hotkeys layout on my own (I hope...).

Could tell me anything about pre reading? Definitely I don't understand what it means... it puts images in cache making faster reading manga? (if I say a bs sorry :P)

Thanks so much Silverado ^^

EDIT: nothing at all... I can't find how to do to rotate pages  :banzai:

I've tried MangaMeeya... impressive, really impressive... unfortunately english version doesn't work on my pc (Win98), so I have a lot of troubles to set it in the right (for me) way (I don't understand chinese language), question: can I find any MM tutorial or menu screenshots (just to see wth is written on it) somewhere on the web?

By the way, those are my biggest troubles:
- How to set "height" for using it in "fit to size (height)" option? I've seen the floting window, but I'm not able to understand how to use it... Done
- When I set to "100%", using space bar or arrows to scroll the page it goes from top to bottom and middle portion of image, jumping the middle portion of the image; it happens with "keyboard scroll" only, mouse scroll is ok; I see scroll settings (smooth, delay) but I'm not able to avoid this behaviour, any suggestion? Done ^^
- Could you tell me where commands for image rotation are? O.o

By the side... I saw something about "pre reading", but I don't understand what it means.

Thanks in advance ^^

put screenshots up so that we can compare with your filter settings.

You prolly just have the wrong filters. I've made a comparison between Irfan View & MMCE long ago:


Frankly, MMCE is terrible when the pictures are large, no matter what kind of filter you put.
On the contrary, Irfanview does an impressive job, but it's too bad that I have to unpack all my manga to read them.

A good (complete) one is GonVisor, I used to work with it when I was an editor; by the way just for reading CDisplay is the best ^^
