Please note that you might experience some problems with running those programs under Vista or Win7, because the software mentioned below was developed for XP (with SP2). If you have any questions concerning the manual, please, post them here and don't PM me, because I haven't enough time to reply on every such PM - on the other side maybe someone will help you or, if there will be huge amount of similar questions, I'll add more detailed info to the tutorial.

I believe many of you are aware of certain sites created by japanese publishers and manga distributors, where you can read chapters of a certain manga for free and without registration (usually the first and the latest chapters), as well as some previews (for example, first N pages of a volume(s)) for series that have already been published and/or printed.
However, in most cases, those materials are available for only a limited amount of time, and afterwards, they get deleted from the aforementioned sites. Which begs the question: could we (and - if possible - how exactly?) save those materials on HDD for future viewing? The problem is that the majority of those kinds of sites use special plugins, which block common methods like "Save as", PrintScreen and so on, so that software, capable of taking screenshots, will be rendered useless. But, even if we manage to do so, it's still boring to manually screenshot every single page of a manga.
We will therefore check out a few possible solutions in order automate that work.The new tutorial is under construction... Please, use the latest build of OMD tool for now. Java Environment 1.6 or above is required to run the program.
