[REQ] Image File Names

Post by SPF » Tue May 18, 2004 4:37 pm

Hi,

I noticed the image file names aom stores are not the same as on anidb. Anidb stores the pictures autoincrement imo, and aom stores the pictures according to anime-id.

I was planning to download all the pictures, so I could view them offline, when at school (on my laptop) or when I don't have internet at location. I don't know if there will be a feature in the future like ppl can download all the pictures in an archive from anidb.

I don't know if the aom database has a link field to the image like anidb does (I think it doesn't). Maybe it could be handy in the future.

Summary:
Would it be possible to keep the same image names as on anidb?

Just let me know what you think about it,

I'm sorry, due to how AniDB can use links to offsite images and those filenames might conflict with local filenames this won't happen.
Later however there will be an xml file in the images folder with the original path of all images. If you can parse this then I guess it's at least somewhat closer to what you want.

Hi,

Well, I already know of a way to get the right pics, guess im too lame to write a script :P

I just hoped there where more ppl who would be interested in this.

It's funny, you can put any pic in the images folder, and it loads in aom :P

Some kind of script to convert the filenames would be great!

It would be great if to have one ore more BT files with all the Information AOM has not from start up like Pictures.
I also would like to use AOM offline.
With BT it would not genarate so much Traffic für the anidb server
