ePUB Generator

Postby Simon » Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:21 am

Hi there.

You can generate the ePUBs here:

M-Chan -- BTDS/BTE-GEN

EDIT: 15.01.2014

As there was an update of the wiki, the ePUB files might look strange or have things that weren't there before.

If you have any problems. Please say so. And I will try to fix them.

One more thing. The browsers on mobile devices can lead to creation of corrupt/wrong files. The only one that works normally (for me) at the moment is Chrome.

So... if you get an epub that shows the main page of B-T then you just have to download them on your pc/laptop and upload itto your device.

Tried using it, but the epubs made seem to cause my Kobo touch to freeze. Has not happened with any other epubs from this site or epubs I have made myself.
Briefly looked on google and it seems to be something to do with the html in the epubs this generates.

Madan no Ou to Vanadis, Highschool dxd v5, campione v5,6,7,9, Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei v1,2, TWGOK v1,2.
Will try redownloading them individually tomorrow and check if I still have the same problem.
Might just be an incompatibility with the Kobo

EDIT: Just tried it again with new downloads of Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei v1 and Madan no Ou to Vanadis V1. Both are working fine now.
Downloaded the previous files just after you posted the epub generator, so it may have been due to this.

Ah, might be the script that is cleaning the folders... maybe while it was downloading the script started working... I'll change it.

Very nice, thanks a lot! This site helps me a lot for generating ePUB for my iPad!

Anyway, I have a problem when generating Golden Time. It didn't work and when I checked with Calibre, it says "error on line 1280 at column 4: Opening and ending tag mismatch." on the beginning (first chapter, I think?).

I don't really know about ePUB format, but some of the images on Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Volume 6 and 7 are missing and became links to baka-tsuki images. When generated, does this site take the images and compress it to the ePUB or just displayed the baka-tsuki version with certain width and height?

Downloaded and tested a few individually, and it seems High School DxD v5 is causing the freezing of my Kobo. All the others I have downloaded appear to be working fine

Ok, "Golden Time" should work...

As for Haganai, I'll do it tomorrow. If you can't wait there should be a post in Auxiliary Brigades with ePUBs, PDFs and MOBIs.

Yup, it works now.

No worries, I prefer waiting for the site. It have better formatting for certain devices.

Fixed the problem in the Haganai vol 6. In vol 7 was everything ok, nothing missed.

As well as HS DxD Vol. 5 is ok... dunno what problem you have. Try re-downloading again.

Added Kobo Touch for resizing.

Just tell me if something is strange or misses.

Hi Simon, I just have a question on the device drop down menu when 'with images' is selected. Does it basically scales down the images to the size of the device?

Reason why I'm asking is because I've noticed a size difference with the epubs generated with different device selections and since I've got a kobo mini (with no memory expansions available) I need to cut down on space... I've been using the original setting so far which isn't probably the best choice.

Yes, it scales them down.

Just use kobo touch. It'l scale it down to 800x600 and will weight less.
