    Hey, great reader, I love it!
    I have a question: Is there a way to change the keyboard and mouse settings? Like I only want to use some keys to scroll a site, not my mouse.

      I’m glad to hear that! ♥

      It is possible to get by without using a mouse– The image can be panned with the arrow keys, and spacebar/shift go to the next and previous pages, respectively. I assume you’d like something like custom key bindings?

      You’re right! That’s definitely something that needs to be fixed; I’ll include it in the next reader update.

      While trying to reproduce it, I did notice a temporary workaround: If you select “Right to Left” again after it’s already been enabled, it will switch to “Left to Right” after you close the options window.

    The “Back Color” option for kuroneko reader doesn’t persist through closing and opening the app.

    The change is represented in the “config_reader” config file but i guess the aoo doesnt read it.

    Other than that, this reader is amazing!

      You’re right, thanks for noticing that! It looks like it writes the correct value to the config file, but it’s not applying it after reading it out and it returns to the default.

      I’ll make sure this is fixed for the next release. I don’t issue as frequent updates to the modules so there’s no way to explicitly check for updates for them at the moment, but I’ll upload it at the same time as the next HDoujin update.

    Can you make it so that it works offline too? Also the database doesn’t work for me. It won’t scan my locations.


    1. Squidy Post author

      Sure. It is now possible to run both Kuroneko Downloader and Manga Database offline; to update them, use the “Download Now” button in the updater and it’ll download the latest versions of both.

      As for the database not working, did it scan the initial folder (the one you specify when you first run the program) correctly? Is it able to scan any directory correctly? If you’re having trouble getting it to scan directories you added to the watch list in the settings menu, click Edit > Run Library Scanner (the latest version will scan new directories right after they’re added, though). The scanning progress notification should appear in the lower left corner of the program.
