Images are base64 encoded, you just need to capture them from web traffic (using Fiddler for example, right click save response body) and decode using something like this site: http://www.motobit.com/util/base64-decoder-encoder.asp


I tried that earlier, but it seems to only captures the GUI images (back, etc.).

Any way to rip that? Looks like it might be encrypted Java, as several Java scripts are run from this site when you open the browser.

So even I purchased some book from bookwalker.
It's not safe to rip anyway.
Am I right?

It's useless. Once you update to the newer version bookwalker will automatically delete your bookwalker roaming folder and all its contents.
1.2.3 needs to have it's licenses renewed regularly, so even if you're running 1.2.3 you may not be able to rip the books unless it was downloaded literally the day before 1.2.4 came out. GIVE UP and wait until a new ripper comes up. If you find a way to circumvent the ban on users with modified apps DO NOT post it, japs are keeping a close eye on this forum and it will spread and bookwalker will make a new countermeasure. Yes there are ways to avoid getting caught. that is all you need to know. No don't PM me asking how. I will block you outright.

It probably won't help, the files that would be served, even if you could download with 1.2.3, will be encrypted in a way that 1.2.3 wouldn't be able to open it

I 'upgraded' to 1.2.4 before finding this thread. Will downgrading allow me to extract already downloaded books? If so, does anyone have a 1.2.3 version of the installer I can downgrade to until a patch comes for bookrunner? I don't want to do a restore just for that.

I have a copy of the older version, let me test and see if this will work.

They appear to have changed the encryption scheme, a 1.2.3 install had an error when trying to read the files from a 1.2.4

Hey Everyone,

I was curious if anyone has had any issues downloading new books with 1.2.3? I bought the latest famitsu yesterday, signed in to 1.2.3 and when I tried to download it I was greeted with an error stating it wouldn't download. I ignored the prompt to update to 1.2.4

I hoped on a VM, installed the latest version, and it worked fine so my account isn't locked.

Any suggestions?

It appears like bookwalker has some kind of signature checking in place now, I tried to run 1.2.4 with the latest bookrunner (on a PC disconnected from the internet) and it closed saying that "The program may be corrupt."

That and lognet4 now seems to be twice the size it used to be, so who knows what else they've done with it, "general performance improvements" my ass.

It has all disappeared :( It would have been nice to have a backup of the latest source from there, would anyone happen to have it?

guy's still active on the site. meaning that he prolly recalled the whole thing in order to not get sued or something.

So, you can't download books from global or nornal bookwalker without paying?
I thougt that is a way to download them without paying and the bookwalker runner is for extract them to desktop in jpg format or smth else?

You should stop talking about a tool without paying because many Japanese fags are watching at this topics to spread this kind of information on 2ch via Haruka. This forums will be marked by all developers of applications with the official Japanese stores in near future. The fact I told that some guys who were modifying for some tools, are gone from here, right?

Hi, I'm new here in jCafe. I would just like to thank EusthEnoptEron for creating this software. I tried it on 0 yen books and it worked and tomorrow I'll be trying it on books that aren't free. This is very helpful to me since their reader sucks like hell.

I got blocked too after using it, but I downloaded my files in advance. I lost a handful that I missed somehow, but such is life.
Although, it only seems to be an IP block at the moment. I'll have to look into it later.
Regardless, thank you for the program. It worked, and it's working for recently downloaded files as well.
Hm... I'm sorry about that, TehBaka and io651990, but thanks for the report. I wonder if they really started looking for the modifications (which is per se only an additional DLL in the directory and a slightly modified DLL), but as long as we can't decompile the code, there's no way to tell.

For the time being, I added a warning to the download post.

Hy all. I have one question. What are the steps to download manga/novels with bookwalker via bookwalkerEX? And, can you rip from global bookwalker? I need some manga from there.
See the post by EusthEnoptEron on a previous page. Use BookRunner v3.1 though. And run bookwalkerEX.exe instead of the regular bookwalker.exe when you need to extract something.

You can try it on global with some sample books. I think most people here buy Japanese books, so I don't know if anyone else has tried before.

This is a heads up for those using bookwalker ripper;

I'm not entirely sure how but I my account got blacklisted after upgrading to ver1.2.3. (I confirmed this via bookwalker support)
I had yet to download / use the new version rip tool, so  I'm guessing the new version has an function to check if the previous version was tappered with.

And before someone asks I was able to login via web browser right before I upgraded, and after that I wasn't able to anymore.

Well, thanks for the heads up.
And I don't really want to play the ass here, but this is almost certainly your very own fault.
You knew that the tool is tampering with original files, therefore you should have made a backup.
My usual steps were:
Download the desired book and close the program without logging out.
Make a backup, copy the patched files over, block its access to the internet (you do not need it after all if you do not log out), and start the program to proceed with the extraction.
Afterward you simply close it again and recover the original.
I wasn't blocked; bought and extracted novels when 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 were active (and even earlier).

@io651990
That’s too bad for you. But I think it's NOT his fault.
I could upgrade the PC App from 1.2.2 to 1.2.3 and log in to my account as usual on bookwalker, although I was using the previous ripper for bookwalker (ver. 3.0).
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!

Just to remind you guys, anyone using the ripper does so at his or her own risk.


@EusthEnoptEron
Thank you so much for your quick update. It works very well on Windows 7 32 bit.

I'm using windows 8 and the bookwalker one doesnt work :(

Things to check:

- Did you follow the steps described here?
- Did you launch the application via BookWalkerEx.exe (with admin privileges)?
- Did you try re-starting the application? It may not work the first time around.

Quick hack that should work with Book Walker 1.2.3:
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!
Use BookWalkerEx.exe to start with export capabilities. Requires admin privileges because it uses symlinks to swap log4net.dll. (Therefore, only works on Windows Vista and above)


Tested with a book I purchased previously and worked flawlessly. Thanks for the quick update. I didn't even know there was a new version

I made a tool for renta because of how trivial it was (the way they encrypt images made me giggle). Need the URL with index.html at the end and a cookie - please do note the cookie is generated every time you open the viewer. I couldn't find the book name in the metadata, so the images are saved in folders named by the book ID.

I made a tool for renta because of how trivial it was (the way they encrypt images made me giggle). Need the URL with index.html at the end and a cookie - please do note the cookie is generated every time you open the viewer. I couldn't find the book name in the metadata, so the images are saved in folders named by the book ID.

Small update on the sokuyomi tool, images were assembled at wrong positions (off by a few pixels).

It's a temporary solution, but this works for that particular chapter. Extract the nw, and inside index.html replace:

Remember to keep all previous nw files. None of the technical stuff has changed (only the location of the files), so it still works. But who knows if/when Gangan Online are gonna change the location of the config files again...

Worked perfectly. As you said the resolution is not the same as prior chapters but still readable. +ren
