Could someone please help me download the P3 manga and fill me in on anything I need to know. Also do we need permission from Starry Heaven to treat it similarly?

^We better ask Gekkoukan High Scans, since one of the members (Mienai) has an account here.

That reminds me... I still need to re-upload these files. I think I'm going to try something to generate intermediary sized images sooner or later as well.

The problem with using sites like RapidShare is you can't really download them without a browser session sweatdrop

I know mangatraders.com has all the releases (however you have to set up an account with them) but if you'd prefer I can upload the versions I have onto Rapidshare or Megaupload and you can just download them from there.

I think there are probably public places to download these, but we do still need to get permission from the Starry Heaven group, unless they've passed on their consent to the Red Hawk group (since Red Hawk apparently took over "scanlation" from what I understand)


PS: I still need to make sure the P4 images are not corrupted, and get the new 4th volume up... so we can afford to take things slowly (I still haven't made an official announcement for these pages on the front page, and it will be a little while before I feel the new technology on these pages is ready to showcase that matter)

Ok, four is up... and I think I will go ahead and put a link on the NEW page. On a positive note I was also able to remote wget mediafire without downloading it to my own computer then uploading it to the server. Just setup the download then was able to trace the link, which fortunately didn't care that the IP downloading wasn't the same requesting sweatdrop

Emilio, I hate to ask too much of you... but I'd really appreciate it if you could help the database out with getting permission on the P3 scanlations and all. Also please post links up where I can download them. I do so much for the website, but it doesn't help if I'm doing stuff that others are able to do.

Of course if anyone else would like to take the burden off Emilio, please just let us know you're on it hearton

^I'm taking care of this already wink I have already the permission from BakaScarlet, aka Arisato to make mirrors from a few Persona 3 chapters, so once I finish downloading them I'll upload them to mediafire/rapidshare and then I'll talk with "Mienai" to see if he gives me the permission for the rest of the chapters.

So once I have all the permissions and mirrors ready, I'll let you know. rolleyes

I don't believe this is true.  We never got into contact with Starry Heaven, so their scans are still strictly theirs.  As for the Persona 3 chapters, all the upcoming chapters will have a megaupload link as I now have access to the group's account which I didn't have before.

If we still don't know anything definite about the P3 scanlations, and someone has the files... due to the past involvement of Tony with the Starry Heaven group from what I can tell, I will go ahead and put them up until someone asks that they be taken down smokin

I developed some code that generates the preview and thumbnail images automatically. The results seem really good. I will get around to using the thumbnails eventually, but for now the pages should load up much faster. I also manually resized the cover pages for the first page where you can pick your starting volume.

Code:
<?php
 
if(!$manga_pages//make previews/thumbs
 
{
  
exec('ls '.$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path,$manga_images);

  
exec('mkdir '.$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.'previews'); 
  
exec('mkdir '.$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.'thumbs'); 
  
  
$gd_warning 0;

  foreach(
$manga_images as $image
  {    
    
$file $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.$image;

    list(
$w,$h) = getimagesize($file); //todo: should do something if width is 0??

    
$src$ext substr($image,-3);  

    switch(
$ext)
    {
    case 
'gif'$src imagecreatefromgif($file); break;
    case 
'jpg': case 'jpeg'$src imagecreatefromjpeg($file); break;
    case 
'png'$src imagecreatefrompng($file); break;
    }

    
$pw $w>$h?900:450$ph $pw/$w*$h$tw 150.0/$h*$w;

    
$preview imagecreatetruecolor($pw,$ph); imageantialias($preview,true);
    
$thumb imagecreatetruecolor($tw,150);   imageantialias($thumb,true);

    
imagecopyresampled($preview,$src,0,0,0,0,$pw,$ph,$w,$h);
    
imagecopyresampled($thumb,$src,0,0,0,0,$tw,150,$w,$h);

    
$previewfile $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.'previews/'.$image;
    
$thumbfile $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.'thumbs/'.$image;

    switch(
$ext)
    {
    case 
'gif'imagegif($thumb,$thumbfile); imagegif($preview,$previewfile); break;
    case 
'jpg': case 'jpeg'imagejpeg($thumb,$thumbfile); imagejpeg($preview,$previewfile); break;
    case 
'png'imagepng($thumb,$thumbfile); imagepng($preview,$previewfile); break;
    }

    
imagedestroy($preview); imagedestroy($thumb);  imagedestroy($src);

    
$gd_warning 1;
  }
 }
?>


This is a start... but there is still a lot to be done in terms of user convenience here sweatdrop

I spent a good chunk of my afternoon working on the thumbnails... mostly making them popup and go away when I wanted them to. It was pretty humiliating, but at least I learned a lot about Javascripts onmouseover and onmouseout event... or basically how retarded/limited the specification is when nested elements are involved sick
 
PS: For my next trick I'll make the thumbnail slideshow center itself on the page number the mouse is over (just as soon as I'm able to regather my spirits)

PPS: Fuck it! Done (and so am I goodnight)

I don't think the P3 manga is related, so probably wouldn't hurt to read them in any order.

As for the whole Javascript setup, I still need to let the reader know the page is loading somehow, and preload nearby pages so it doesn't take as long to skim thru. Though that already happens if you read it in the high resolution mode, which is probably what most first time readers (as opposed to peepers) would end up doing. Javascript is such a pain to work with. Flash might make more sense, but it requires plugins and I refuse to learn Flash I think. The evolution of internet technology is pretty messed up. There probably needs to be a completely new kind of webpage that supercedes html and all related technologies (that definitely isn't pure Flash websites -- that's by far worse... the scourge of the internet as far as I'm concerned)
