Hi,

How can I troubleshoot a comic file that does not show complete?

It works fine on my macbook and in other comic readers.

it is imported fine by yacreader (no errors, I mean) but it only shows around 20 pages while it should be 170+

Also, they are not the first 20 pages or the last 20.

It's part of a collection and those I've tried have the same problem.

iOS 12.4.1 on iPhone XS

Thanks in advance.

Marco

Open the file with a file extractor (it is probably a zip or rar file), then extract its content and check for errors. The file could be corrupted.

Hi,

As stated, these files work perfectly with any other reader, how could they be corrupted?

Anyway, I've extracted it and there are no errors as expected. I've compressed it again and the problem is still there.

I've noticed the images inside the zip are organised into a one level sub-directories, is this a known issue for yacreader, to not be able to read sub-directories?

Thanks,
Marco

if the images inside the folders are named the same then yes, that isn’t supported.

They are like:

main directory
directory1
001.jpg
002.jpg
...
directory2
001.jpg
002.jpg
...
(etc)


if this is what you mean

is there any plan to support this file structure, before I go insane splitting hundreds of directories manually?

Thanks,
Marco

There is no plan to do it unless it becomes something common. What is on the subfolders? Is the comic file a volume with comics inside as subfolders or something? Are there any publishers starting to pack thing like this?

You should try to write a script instead of doing it manually.

It's a comic book where sub directories are chapters of a volume.

I did the renaming and I cannot find how to put them in a collection (or whatever is called), so I don't have 50 items in the main library.

I cannot find any info anywhere, can you please help?

Thanks,
Marco

The right naming should be something like this:

ch1-01.jpg
ch2-02.jpg
...
chn-01.jpg
etc

For renaming a lot of files at once I recomend Renamer.
