 :wahaha: fu fu fu, based on what I found inside the ripper I managed to write a standalone downloader :4da5b0e8:

I can't guarantee it'll always work for all pages in all chapters of all series, but it might actually work better than the ripper did (from what I've seen in the code, the ripper only successfully decoded some pages of some series). I'm really grateful to whoever wrote the ripper, it spared me days of reverse engineering obfuscated javascript and\or brute forcing the segmentation sequence (I actually kind of started that...).

Yeah, that's the shortcut I use for various online stores.
Alternatively, you can grab the firefox ripper from here.

The best method for Comic Walker, is to screencap with an ipad, or printscreen through your laptop/desktop.
Or if you really are dedicated, as you mentioned, you could try and rearrange this:

I messed around with decoding this scramble today, although I managed to test a few theories, I couldn't come up with an algorithm to decode those. However I found out that I can make full sized screenshots in FireFox by using crtl+shift+m shortcut. Basically in this mode FireFox allows setting any resolution you want (I use 1500x2050 because the pages on Comic Walker have sizes like that). Pair it up with a screenshot plugin (I use FireShot) and you've got yourself full sized page saved on HDD.

can anyone please provide me with a valid download link to OMD 0.1.10?
I need to download this series from club shogakukan.
http://club.shogakukan.co.jp/book/detail-book/book_group_id/310/
there are 2 chapters available now. If OMD can't grab from that website, can anyone tell me how to?

You could try ripping them manually.
Go Tools>Page Info>then the Media Tab.
You should find an image like this: http://img-comic.pixiv.net/images/page/336/jyth0DCtiGaW6gxHUw7f/4.jpg?20120912103332
Or you can just save the webpage, and change Save as Type to Webpage Complete.

I'm having a problem ripping chapters from Pixiv right now.
Each time I put a pixiv chapter link on OMD 0.1.10, it shows "Error: A JSONObject text must begin with '{' at 1 [character 2 line 1]"

I'm no Java master, so hopefully someone can help out. (or I might be the only one getting this?)

I believe this also applies to IE, but with Firefox, you either press ctrl+s, or file, then save page as.
Then when you save the webpage, change 'save as type', to 'web page complete.'

If you save the webpage, and change the save type to complete webpage, you should get a folder with all the images.

Is there a software that can save manga from Niconico that follows watch/mgXXXX format instead of watch/bkXXXX?

It's actually relatively simple. There's only a limited number of ways the app scrambles it, and the way it chooses is easily determined anyways.

The best way for sokuyomi.jp, is to printscreen.
I've purchased something from there before, and when I tried to extract the images from the viewer, they came out all scrambled.
Even though it may be strenuous, it works for me for the various other ebook stores I use.

If that is the file type that is exported when you purchase from an online store, then I don't think you'd be able to convert it to an image format. You can only really view those types of files, through the stand alone reader program, specific to the store you purchased from.
Where did you purchase from to get that file type?
my friend bought it from an app called "Line Naver"

Don't mind me, but may I ask if anyone has figured out how to grab stuff from PUBLUS Reader (i.e the one from Comic Walker Kadokawa)? I need it for some of my scanlations.

Edit: I figured out how to grab. Then I realised the whole thing was scrambled. Congratulations CSS.

I actually tried to purchase something from sokuyomi.jp the other week. Your best bet would be to printscreen the pages, because they scramble the images when you try to grab them, like so:

Does anyone know a way to download from niconico other than using OMD tool since lately, it seems it has a problem working with links like this one :
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!

I can download that one just fine with the "latest" version of OMD, although it does tend to just halt in the middle and error. Easily remedied by just reclicking the download button. If that fails, just grab an older version.

It's a shame /a/non stopped updating OMD, though. Sadly, web encoding keeps changing causing it to not work any more, like with Shogakukan. Now it's an extreme pain to rip them, whether you drag it from the browser cache or print screen your way to victory.
