That was fixed.


On another note and due to the server move, there's now a problem with the placement of the images by the generator... (Simon told me it's bound to fix itself in a week or so)

Hi guys!!

Could it be the epub generator is half broken? Today, all Epubs I have downloaded suffered from the same issue. The images will only appear in the beginning of the file. At the time the image is suppose to appear it wont show the image but just a line of text. For example for Leviathan of the Covenant Volume 1 It says

Leviathan 01 035.jpg

This has happened with every series downloaded today. My High School DxD Epub Files up to 18 (that I downloaded months ago) are fine, but the two downloaded today are suffering from this same bug.

I have no idea where else to inform this so

PS: A few post behind this problem was already mentioned.

I have a UI question/suggestion. Would it be possible to have the LN volumes as actual hyperlinks so I can just open a whole bunch of them in new tabs so I can generate multiple volumes faster? Or at least could there be a batch-generate option where I select which volumes I want to get?

And thanks for the good work! Proper ebook formats look much better on a kindle than PDFs!

Yes, ongoing problem.

Do you mean like this?

If yes, then just use noscript, disable that domain and you'll get that result.

I'll do that, though I would rather not have to install an extra extension just for this purpose...

You might like to give the the Chrome Extension EPUB Generator a try. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... cnibaigelm
I'm reasonably sure it doesn't have this problem.

Disclaimer:
I'm the developer of it, so if there's problems please let me know. Either email me at [email protected], or post to forum https://baka-tsuki.org/forums/viewtopic ... 84&t=16114.
(If you like it, or can suggest improvements, I'd also like to know.)

Cheers.

No, it's still ongoing. Lery (replacing Simon as the new BT server admin) will tell us when fixed.

Blood Sign's epub is missing one of its color illustrations.

Specifically, this one:

Any updates on the image situation?

Seems it's still an ongoing issue. Are the images supposed to be placed in a location similar to that of the wiki?

Added, thanks.

Lunar Vitae wrote:Seems it's still an ongoing issue. Are the images supposed to be placed in a location similar to that of the wiki?

Yeah, the generator places them as they are in the chapters on the wiki. The only ones are supposed to be at the start, are those that aren't assigned to any chapter but are on the illustration's page. This issue appeared after the server move and needs to be troubleshooted by Lery.

Those that use the chrome browser can try using the Standalone ePUB Generator chrome extension in the meantime.


*edit* The generator is now permanently offline. RIP BTE-GEN

I know you said the generator is now permanently offline(quote the tears), but will there be plans to bring it back online again in the future?

Actually, I'm a little sad to see this development. When I tested the generator to reply to a previous post, I found that the novel read in a more dramatic and engaging manner than reading directly from the wiki. A classic "build suspense, turn page, read climax" episode.

Maybe it was just the act of "turning" a page.

damn, I haven't checked this thread out for a while since I last posted. So, will the gen be revived with an updated version sometime? also, reading throughout the posts, there seemed to be an issue with the gen. Can anyone tell me which novels were affected? Cause I've just been stockpiling my novels like crazy without reading them atm

also, tried out the epub gen extension. I have a question, would it be possible to remove the images that are duplicated at the beginning? e.g. Ultimate Antihero v1 page 35 image shows up where it should be, but there's also a duplicate at the beginning

I guess that will depend on someone putting their own generator up...

It affected all generated novels after the server move, due to some change in the BT server.

As for the extension, you should try talking with the dev, he's pretty responsive.
