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...
