MangaCrazy 3.9: Little things that matter [Download link at bottom]


HI everyone! I’m sorry for this late update. I haven’t been able to find enough time to devote to improving MangaCrazy, and I was hell bent on adding spectacular features before releasing a new version.

But spectacular features require time.

And in the meanwhile, you guys were having to put up with the annoying ‘error’ messages and what not. So I have decided to release whatever I have completed as of yet, and then I’ll continue with the slow upgrading. In this version, I hope you will encounter ‘error’ less frequently. MangaCrazy now also supports compression in .cbz form. Now double clicking on a downloaded manga opens the .zip/.cbz file directly, so goodies for you if you have set default preferences to a manga reader software 😉 . All of you who had issues about Batoto, I hope you will find this version satisfactory, and I have a titbit to share: if you wish to download Manga in a different language, just copy the chapter link and drop it in the downloads bar and voila! Thanks, A. Bera for pointing this one out! And for all of you who had issues downloading from Mega, I have put up the .jar file in Google Drive for now, at least till I find a good file sharing site. One down side though: this version does not support MangaBird, which was giving the program a lot of trouble.

Last but not the least, I want to thank all of you 4500+ people who have downloaded my little program, and all you great folks who have kept sending me your suggestions and feedbacks. MangaCrazy still has a long way to go, and I hope you will bear with me. I am afraid the next update will take a while in coming – I plan to renovate MangaCrazy. And here’s a bit of what I aim to achieve: support listing of mangas in other languages (from Batoto at least). A better search algorithm that will speed things up. And support MangaStream and a few more sites. And a few more ideas I am keeping to myself for now 😉 .

So till then, enjoy MangaCrazy 3,9! And thank you so much guys, for my site has >25k hits!! \m/

MangaFox Downloader v2.0’s here! [Post Updated 01/24]


Updated on 24 Jan: The next version is out! Check out the the release blog post here to see what is new… and I assure you a LOT is! I am removing the download link in this page. However, if you still want this version, it’s available in the archives page.

Original Post:

I got a few suggestions regarding the previous version of MangaFox Downloader, and now here’s a levelled-up version for you!

Download the latest version, MangaFox Downloader v2 here. (P.s. link updated! You don’t need to register in 4shared to nab the file now.)

In addition to all the functionalities previously present in the first version (Find out here), MangaFoxDownloader v2 can now get your chapter links for you by itself!

Things that have changed:

Now , if you want, you no longer need to search and enter the link to the manga chapter you want. Now you can just enter the Manga’s name in the text field.

1

And if the manga is present in MangaFox’s directory then voila! It’ll fetch the list of chapters available.

2

And then you can download all the chapters you need! However, you will need to make sure you’ve spelled the name correctly… I haven’t added a “closest hit” functionality yet, but it IS in the to-do list!

MangaFox Downloader v2 permits multiple selection, so it makes the downloader even more user friendly.

Finally, I’ve modified the naming pattern of the folders by incorporating not just the chapter name but volume name too. This is because I realised sometimes chapters names are redundant while present in separate volumes. In such a case, the previous version would have just overwritten the first occurring chapter.

So MangaFox Downloader is now much improved, and is still improving. I’d love to get more ideas so that it becomes the best one out there! 😀

And yes, it is a MangaFox Downloader for now, but very soon we will do away with the “Fox” in the name… Ambition ambition!

Revamped MangaFox Downloader: Now Beta Testing


The link in this post has been updated to the most recent version of MangaFox Downloader. Please view this post to check the changes and additional functionalities.

Yep, I changed the name again. “MangaFox Ripper” gave me “The Ripper” chills. #TheVampireDiariesReference 😛

So the name “MangaFox Downloader” is neat, simple and self-explanatory. Yay!

And yes, this is a momentous occasion… The tiny little program that looked like a pimply gangly high-schooler, is now a professional-looking downloader, if I may say so 😀

Now you can download multiple chapters at the same time, stop the downloader if you want, and resume at your will! Finally can I now claim it’s a full-fledged Downloader. *Dances a jig*

And yes, this version is ready for beta-testing, so I’d really appreciate your help!

You can get the tiny li’l file (about 20kBs) right here.

There is no need to install. Just save the .jar file in the location where you want your manga chapters to be stored. Then in command prompt go to that location, and type in the command:

java -jar “MangaFox Downloader.jar”

file1

Which will launch the MangaFox Downloader interface.

file2

It actually DOES look like a real downloader now, doesn’t it *grins*

Next, is to get the link of the manga chapter from the free manga-hosting website, http://mangafox.me/

You need to copy the link of the individual chapter, not the manga’s ‘home-page’.

file3

Then all you have to do next is paste the link in MangaFoxDownloader’s Download bar, and click on ‘Add Download’ and you’re all set!

file5

This version of MangaFox Downloader supports multiple downloads, so there’s no need for waiting for a chapter to finish downloading before you download others!

file6

Hope you all enjoy!

Once again, you can find the downloader here: http://www.4shared.com/file/vlF4bcCK/MangaFox_Downloader.html

The Downloader needs no installing. However, you WILL need to have JRE installed. If you don’t, you’re missing out a lot of fun! You can get it for free right here: http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp

I’d appreciate your feedback!
