Possible bug with adultfanfiction fics (Solved 0.3.0)

Postby Dark09 » Sun 27. Mar 2011, 03:47

Before today I've been using the Automatic fanfiction downloader version 4.06 to download from adultfanfiction.net . Missing punctuation as well as other characters was expected it didnt really bother me, because i can still read it lol. I tried to download a few fics from adultfanfiction just to test mainly (http://games.adultfanfiction.net/story.php?no=600084463). It seems the bug is still there.
"Tell me... Do you ever feel a strange sadness as dusk falls?�

�They say it's the only time when our world intersects with theirs... The only time we can feel the lingering regrets of spirits who have left our world. That is why loneliness always pervades the hour of twilight..."


It sounded outlandish, but looking at his surroundings, Link supposed it could very well be true. The setting sun reflected off the surface of the brook they sat beside. It fell between the branches in the world, and the dusk was painted rich gold and deep emeralds. It certainly appeared otherworldly. Rusl looked contemplative, similar to how Link himself felt.

�But I�m rambling, I suppose,� he finally continued. Link gave him his full attention, as he always did.

�You�ve been like a son to me, Link,� he said. �Ever since Uli and I found you. I had always imagined that I would one day ask you to come with me on one of my journeys.� He looked away. �But it seems that this will be quite different.�


It seems not consistent with all of the (") quotes in the fic. Its still very readable, but I just wanted to at least let you know if this. I also wanted to thank you for making this great application, before I found out able this downloader I was copying fic's mainly to office and adding them to calibre.

Hi Dark,

that's a very interesting problem. It's caused by the charset of the page.
Theoretically there should be the same problem with Mugglenet.

I did some change, now it's working for me. The problem is that I'm using a very strange method to convert it. Based on the methods name it could behave different depending on your computersetting.

You can download the new .exe here: http://fanfictiondownloader.net/fanficdownloader.zip

@All: If you download from adultfanfiction.net - Please use the new .exe and tell me if there are problems.

I tied the exe you compilied and noticed some of the characters are Japanese in the html file.

Below is copied from the html file after downloading:
*Chapter 1*: Chapter 1

Chapter I

"Tell me... Do you ever feel a strange sadness as dusk falls?・

典hey say it's the only time when our world intersects with theirs... The only time we can feel the lingering regrets of spirits who have left our world. That is why loneliness always pervades the hour of twilight..."

鉄o you値l go in my place, then?・

徹f course,・Link said. Rusl smiled at him.

I then remembered I recently changed the Region and Language Options to Japanese in some of the settings. Specifically in the administrative tab and the Language for non-Unicode programs to Japanese. After changing this back to english the few characters that were Japanese is now engish without the need to re-download the file again.

I still have the non-Unicode programs set to Japanese and tired to add the converted MOBI to calibre to see if there is any Japanese characters (even though there are characters in the html file) and there is none. At this point everything works great xD.

Below is copied from the MOBI from calibre:

"Tell me... Do you ever feel a strange sadness as dusk falls?”

“They say it's the only time when our world intersects with theirs... The only time we can feel the lingering regrets of spirits who have left our world. That is why loneliness always pervades the hour of twilight..."


It sounded outlandish, but looking at his surroundings, Link supposed it could very well be true. The setting sun reflected off the surface of the brook they sat beside. It fell between the branches in the world, and the dusk was painted rich gold and deep emeralds. It certainly appeared otherworldly. Rusl looked contemplative, similar to how Link himself felt.

“But I’m rambling, I suppose,” he finally continued. Link gave him his full attention, as he always did.

“You’ve been like a son to me, Link,” he said. “Ever since Uli and I found you. I had always imagined that I would one day ask you to come with me on one of my journeys.” He looked away. “But it seems that this will be quite different.”

“I was to deliver a gift to the castle town, for the princess’s inauguration, but… Uli is due with the child any day now. I can’t leave.” He turned to Link, who was already nodding, an eager smile on his face.

“So you’ll go in my place, then?”

“Of course,” Link said. Rusl smiled at him.

“I knew I could count on you. I’m sure you’re eager to see the world beyond this village, anyway.” Link nodded again.

“Well, you’ll have to visit Ilia before dark, if you expect her to let you take Epona,” Rusl said, getting to his feet. “Let’s get back.”

The two walked down the bank of the stream, heading towards the village.

Yes, no real problem after converting the html to the actual ebook format. Its a work around I guess if someone wants to read the html and hasn't changed back the region and language settings needs to do so.
