Updated my post with a better solution. Hopefully it works this time.

I really like your "dirty" and lightweight solution for EBJ :D
thanks a lot!

edit3: in my case firefox is prone to crashes while using the script via greasemonkey. but nonetheless superb work, mate!

ya I meet same situation when I using this script via greasemonkey. I'm not a FF user (mainly use chrome), don't know it's a common bug for greasemonkey or not.
but this script save the pics in unique page numbers, it will be rename same pages such as "20(1)" after crashes.
so it's totally not a problem for me   

EDIT (Just a question): Is OMD still going to be updated? This solution's great, but it would be nice to have another alternative as backup as well. And so I can also rip from Gangan site.

OMD is committed to rip almost all sites, it's a great work but also a very big "target",
we already lose the official OMD git site due to unknown reason. 
Hope some one know some news for OMD

I still use chrome3.
Please rewrite the script, for example, GM_download etc.

I use Chrome. I answer that I wanted to save the page, but nothing happens. Do not tell me what's wrong?

holy shit it works!! one thing to note is that i had to rename the file ending of the saved pastie script to .user.js for greasemonkey to recognize it. the dump images question pops up for every part of the ebj page but who cares. only really downside is to click safe for every single image. but thank you for investing your time and doing this. maybe the other script would have worked out and i was just too dumb to use it...

edit: it asks to dump the pages on every website with pictures...
so users might want to turn off greasemonkey if they're not in the ebj viewer...

edit2: in firefox's options you can specify what to do with every file type. if you select for png's to be directly saved, you don't have to save every single image manually...

edit3: in my case firefox is prone to crashes while using the script via greasemonkey. but nonetheless superb work, mate!

A quick and dirty solution I made for EBJ:

greetings, i got fiddler running and set a rule with the pastie file as response and it does nothing (or rather shows in the left side of the window that i'm acessing ebj, but there are still no options to save anything). two things i don't understand are: 1. in what way do you need to replace the .js file? 2. where can you set up automatic downloads?
when i browse ebj's starting pages, i am able to rip the covers of the mangas, but when i have the reader open it doesn't recognize any pictures...

strange i tested it out yesterday on one of my naruto volumes tht i purchased and it was workin.


as stated before it, doesn't work with newer volumes. naruto is done and over with since quite some time. domestic na kanojo volume 8, which was released two days ago, is unfortunately still scrambled. the old omd fix could also load older volumes. but there are a lot of good releases coming feb/march which i will have to printscreen...

btw, is it only me or did pixiv change their code? omd won't rip pages from manga chapters for me any longer
They did, but pixiv doesn't scramble their images. A simple network inspector is all that's needed.

unfortunately i can confirm this. just bought a book and omd just rips scrambled images...
so ebj is dead to me until someone can fix this. because a res of 1200 pix isn't really that good to printscreen...


Same here. I usually rip from EBJ most of the time so this is a bit of a problem. Worse for me since I only have a 1080p laptop.

I wish that we could just unscramble it once it's been ripped but the file would already have been compressed into a png... wait you can but I have trouble doing it manually.

I really hope this gets fixed as soon as possible

And only the new books.  The older ones are still unscrambled.  Seems to indicate that the images are stored on their servers in a scrambled state and then unscrambled on the fly.  So the software would need a way to know which images are scrambled and which images are not.

Or even just a version specifically for this month onwards since the ones prior to this month still work

So what did I do was

I visited this

http://www.jcafe24.net/index.php?topic=23795.msg952812#msg952812

Then I downloaded V2.0beta 2 and went to the http://nwjs.io/ to download v0.13.0-beta5

So I did this and click the program but it didn't do anything :cant-reach:

My gosh! How did you guys download manga from comic walker?!

bookwalker has always been a no-go. omd has an option for nico nico ebook though. i didn't use it, but it never hurts to try if you've already purchased something from there.



Thanks for your advice, but I've tried every version of OMD, and the nico e-book part only works when the book is for free.
When trying to purchased books, it would either:
Report a "finished" but export nothing;
Error: 404 error loading URL http://bkdrm32.nicoseiga.jp/maki/drm
I tried to search for the URL, and found a two-years-ago thread: http://www.jcafe24.net/index.php?topic=41336.0 ,which remains unsolved.

So there's still no method to deal with nico ebook (when it comes to a not-free part) and bookwalker, right?
Well, I'm feeling like to go back to the printscreen ages......

gvim (the guy/gurl who made omd) had a detailed instruction on his/her bitbucket site. that along with omd was unfortunately deleted... i got it running on my laptop, but surely wouldn't know what to do without instructions. not to mention, gvim's script is obviously gone too.

I once made a tool for decrypting neowing .ebi files that was defunct once they updated their reader. This is a completely new one that supports other stores as well (since they use the exact same software with different constants). If anyone knows of other stores that use the same reader, please let me know and I'll add it.

Wait, was it ever possible to download 'books'/light novels/not manga from ebookjapan?
I bought some books and couldn't view them in the web viewer so I assumed I just wasted my money.
There is a way to get them saved without their DRM system?
only tried light novels in the past and it worked just like manga. because both were just saved as pngs on the server which could be ripped. it stayed the same for manga, but was unfortunately changed for lightnovels. other books or whatever no plan...

and that worked only for both lightnovels and manga which were viewable in the browser. for others i don't know any way to rip 'em (even for manga).

I tried the OMD v1.6.2 on a manga I've bought today on ebookjapan and it doesn't work. Is it the same for all of you? Do you know other program that works?
if you've got the gecko hack it still works. only light novels don't work. search in this thread for the gecko hack if you don't have it yet...

I don't have a fix version, I just buid that image from the request. From the scanlation thread, it seems that the chinese has fixed this, so I just want to check if they have shared it.

the title pages are normal but color spreads and the like not (at least not for me). do you have a working link to the site or a download from where you got the fixed omd version? i got the gecko hack 0.162 which still works for manga but not light novels...

the title pages are normal but color spreads and the like not (at least not for me). do you have a working link to the site or a download from where you got the fixed omd version? i got the gecko hack 0.162 which still works for manga but not light novels...

it seems they've also tampered with the image size of the illustrations. will the size be back to original in case ln's become ripable again?
