At the end of the thread, so there should be some time before the retry.

You can force a retry any time:
  • delete the files starting with a dot (e.g. '.bf729c239643231') and size 0 (zero bytes)
  • start the thread again
  • BUT DO NOT DELETE dot-files with a size > 0. They mark already downloaded images.

Yes, or I think images that were tried but failed to download?--i.e. dead images.

In my second folder/post, I have dot-files with size > 0 but some of them do not correspond with downloaded images.

bvhc0011.jpg & bvhc0013.jpg downloaded OK.

bvhc0012.jpg did not download--it's a dead image.

but one of the dot-files corresponds to bvhc0012.jpg (I look inside the file & that's its text value).

Hmm, correction: your tool stopped part-way through downloading the images from this post.

bvhc0019.jpg was the last image successfully downloaded. There are 25 images in that post but I only have 20 dot-files.

Maybe unrelated: One of the images in the post imagebam has "forgotten its filename". So one of your dot-files has the text value:

34074677?AWSAccessKeyId=1K3S7Z90W9SH1PAJ9702&Expir es=1497536878&Signature=X9wwP9xS4GY8pfcQOJ6isyBl0P o=

I have seen this months before with manual or Image Host Grabber downloads of some files on imagebam--i.e. sometimes some images have long names like that, & include "AWSAccessKeyId=" & "Signature=" in them.

Hmmm, but testing with IHG I find that in this case that link with the "forgotten" filename is also a dead image, rather than a download-able image file. So maybe that is all irrelevant.

Still, something about that post seemed to stop your tool part-way.

edit: now trying 1.11, and it is downloading additional images from that thread. The previous post now has the correct number of dot-files: 25. Unfortunately, the tool seems to have once again stopped part-way through the very next post. There are only 6 dot-files where there should be 10.

I re-started your 1.11 tool and it completed that post--10 dot-files & 9 images because 1 is dead--but then on the next post stopped part-way through once again.

I made the mistake of first testing your tool (1.10) on a thread with a very long title, so I've got post folders each with very long titles inside the thread folder with a very long title, i.e.:
I intended to limit the name to 20 characters - and forgot. I will do this in the next version.
This could be a problem with Windows because it has a maximum length of file paths.

Strictly, the post folders really only need the post id, as that is canonical on vef, but the thread id & page are perhaps helpful/reassuring for "humans"?
Yes, this is intended for humans

but there are posts immediately below that second post that also have imagebam images, for example p=636727, but they have not had their images saved?

I do not think I accidentally "stopped" your tool from completing its task--it got all 312 pages, but seemingly stopped with just 2 posts with images.

I tried to re-run the tool on the same thread but no change/additions.
I cannot reproduce this yet. I tried Thread 33256 on Windows (1.10) and Linux (1.11). Both seem to work.
But I stopped after some images. I understood it didn't work at all.
I am currently running the whole thread and have to wait until it reaches one of the failed posts.

The postcount# (= 146, in your example above) is helpful in addition to the post id# (= 576111 above) because then the post folders will be listed alpha-numerically in the same order as the posts appear in the current thread. It's also helpful when checking whether imagebam/imagebox images you found in a specific post were actually downloaded. It's true that the postcount# may change after posts are moved/deleted, but they are useful at the time of downloading.

One possible solution would be to limit the thread title portion of the folder names to a max number of characters, say 20 or 25. Update: I see halvar already addressed this in previous post.

SEVERE Log messages show images that could not be downloaded. This could be because of femporary reasons (netwok etc.) or the hoster has really lost the image.

I checked some of the error images: The Image html page can sometimes be downloaded, but not the included image.

In these cases the dot file is larger than 0 bytes, since the filename could be determined.

I will implement a check that walks through the whole storage folder and reports or deletes 0 byte files and dot files without corresponding image. Two new Buttons: One for reporting, one for deleting.

I ran a somewhat long thread (32 pages) a second time, using the newer vef-imagerescue 1.11, and I noticed that it paused for a long time (minutes?) before its said FINISHED. This is presumably when it was double-checking the files that did not download the first time through. After the long pause, it downloaded an additional 12 files, so the double checking was worthwhile.

Just ran another pic-heavy thread for the 2nd run, this time with version 1.11, and after the big pause, it's downloading many images as duplicates of those already downloaded successfully the first time. Also, the "last modified" dates shown by Windows are not correct; they are dated two or three days ago though I just downloaded them minutes ago. And no, the files were not updated in the posts a few days ago either.

Thread is here:
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/t65...-database.html

Update: New version 1.12 takes care of this problem. It turns out, I was looking in the original folders, and version 1.11 was creating new folders (explained in the bugfix for 1.12), so the dupes were actually created by an older version, which is why I thought the date of the files was wrong. Hopefully the duping won't happen with the updated version.

Instructions based on Windows 10 OS.

Install:
Java Runtime Version 8, current version: Version 8 Update 131
https://www.java.com/en/download/

Download the tool:
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/sho...71&postcount=8

Extract using WinZip or similar extracting program to drive of choice, I extracted mine to this path:
C:\vef-imagerescue-1.11

Double Click the Jar file in the vef-imagerescue-1 11 folder.

This launches the tool.

Click the "storage" button, select a folder where you want to save the images to.

Add your VEF UserName and Password in the equivalent boxes.

In thread name box, paste the thread number.

e.g. to rip for this link:
Code:
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/t11082-nikita-gross.html
use 11082

Click start, and it should start downloading any image from imagebam and imgbox. Each folder relates to the post count and post number.

Hopefully this helps you guys, any questions ask and we'll try to answer them as best as possible.

Thanks to halvar for this great tool and his efforts

Default vef-imagerescue can download what *appear* to be dead images

Discovered another interesting and useful thing about the vef-imagerescue tool.

As effCup mentioned in an earlier post (quoted above), sometimes the file name cannot be found, and the file is downloaded as a partial name with no file extension.

I found a few of these files with no extension, and they all had gibberish file names ending in an equals sign: =



When I changed the file name, replacing the equals sign with the extension .jpg, I was able to open and view the image in Windows Photo Viewer.

The surprise was, although the thumbnail link in the original post linked to a dead image, and Image Host Grabber failed to download it, the imagerescue tool was able to download the full size image!

Below are the imagebam thumb (left) and a thumb for my reup to imagezilla. Click on them and see what you get.


original imagebam thumb (left), new imagezilla thumb (reupped today)

This is good news for those of us trying to archive these vulnerable images, but it also means we have to be careful not to delete thumbnail links that we think are dead, before processing the thread with the imagerescue tool.

Default version 1.12 of imagerescue released

version 1.12 is available here https://1fichier.com/?wyr08iqlrg

changes since 1.11
  • fixed bug: repeated processing of a thread to a folder with 'old -p1- naming' like 't10580-p1-vto-mags-pussy' produces additional folders for the last page of the thread like 't10580-p1-p1-vto-mags-pussy'
  • fixed bug: when an image page can be downloaded but not the image itself the filename is written in the dot file nonetheless
  • long thread names are now cut to a maximum of 50 characters

So where is this jar file, I open folders and get more folders.
