Thanks for the report.

Yeah it seems to be some flaw in the 7zip code I'm using. Not 7zip itself but the way it's being triggered. I have a fix for it already which will be in the next beta. Someone sent me one of these NZB's and they aren't like normal split files in that the files have random sizes. I'm not sure but I think the current failures are related to that.

I just worked around the whole issue so split files appear to be a single 7z file to the decoder without first having to combine them which on 60 gigs files would be terribly slow.


looking forward to that beta :)

those random sizes in the NZBs are now becoming more common and an issue for v6.82; download completes, but reports as failed; wonder how many others think its failed and delete the leftover files without trying 7zip on them and finding it works lol :)

I'm having a bit of trouble with an nzb. It's a password protected archive, but the nzb isn't being loaded by newsbin, it seems to be silently rejecting it - I'm sure they used to appear in the failed files with a description of it having a password?

Also, I can't seem to turn the MOTD off, it doesn't matter whether I check the box in options to turn it off or on, it still shows on startup!

Cheers

1 - You can email the NZB to TS@newsbin.com for me to look at. B1 has a problem with NZB's with passwords on them so, that might be your issue here.

2 - You might need to re-register from the help menu. You can't disable the MOTD if you're not registered. I mean just re-enter and submit your key.

This is most likely the problem then, it was just odd that nb silently discards it.

Yes, that got it, which is weird. Must be a Windows 10 thing then!

It's especially weird because Newsbin saves the key in a couple different places because of Win10 shenanigans.

Quade, Turned up an odd one earlier, a password protected zip didn't unzip after I added the password to the password file so I did a manual unzip from the file list and it went into an unstoppable loop that I had to force a close in Newsbin to stop.

is there a possibility of Pre-Beta 2 release, a beta 1.5 for the 7zip fix? :)
thx!

It's coming. I have a list of things I need to get working. B2 is going to come out of the new code so, there are many more changes than in B1.

There's just a bunch of fiddly stuff I need to get hooked back up.
