This board's been awfully slow, so I decided to share a bunch of requests I did (minus Megatokyo, I merely edited cYo's version to include some missing pages). Anything marked with a ** is NOT self-updating, but they should be simple enough to edit to include newer pages.

Unzip and open the .cbw files in ComicRack. It may take a while for ComicRack to get everything up to date, and I can't guarantee all of them will include 100% of the pages. Biggest wish for ComicRack would be some more tools for creating .cbw's. As it is, there's no way to tell why ComicRack stops loading images or what the page source it's getting looks like or why a regex that works fine in Expresso doesn't work in ComicRack.

Thanks! This is huge... a +2 well-deserved karma on its way!

I tried 'Between Failures', but it stopped after giving me only 8 pages:

Glad you liked it! Lot more where that came from if the web comic functionality is improved. Let me know if there's anything to improve on.

Hi,

I'm having trouble loading the Looking For Group cbw.

I've spent the last day or so trying to write my own cbw for Looking For Group (tried both browser scraper and index scraper), but with no success. I'm pretty new to regex etc, and this is only the second cbw that I've tried to write (my first was an Order of the Stick one that came out fine).

Anyway, I finally came across this thread, and noticed Looking for Group in the list, but the cbw won't open for me.

Just wondering if you had any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong?

Huh, it's no longer working on my computer either. I believe there was a bit of a website change on the LFG website, but the image regex should have still worked (and thus should have at least loaded the first page and then think that there were no new updates). I tried using new regexes which worked out fine in Expresso, but no luck. I know this very .cbw worked months ago when I made it because I used it to export an offline version of the comic, which I still have. I don't know if this is a bug, an error on my end, or something on the web page that's preventing ComicRack from getting the proper page source.

I'll keep looking for a fix. Let me know if any other comics are no longer working.

Thanks for looking. I looked at your image regex myself, and it looks fine. No idea why it isn't working.

As I mentioned, I only grabbed the zip because my own cbw files wouldn't work for LFG, and I wanted to get some tips from yours. I did try a couple of the other cbw files in the zip, just to make sure the problem wasn't at my end, but they all loaded fine.

I'll let you know if I think of anything.
