    Cool Any interest for a manga reader?

    OK, so iv'e been programming this thing for my own use for sometime now, and figured there may be some interest for it here. It's basically just a picture viewer that's geared towards viewing manga, it has Zip support (may be slightly buggy), bookmark support and a few other random features I don't remember programming.

    MangaPix
    important: Requires DotNet 2.0 framework

    For now it's binary only, though I am considering releasing the source as GPL (in fact the use of that zip library may require that...)

    Also, if you have any features or find any bugs than feel free to post them in this thread, I'll try my best to fix/impliment.

    disclaimer:
    This software is considered "beta" in that I'm not exactly a great programmer, and probably has a few bugs. I'm pretty sure it won't break your computer, but there are no guarantees or anything.

    64% of the worlds pixels are being abused, please think of the pixels.
    (very few pixels were harmed in the making of this sig, but a bunch more were harmed in the making of this disclaimer)

    IMHO, the best manga viewer out there is................................................ ........windows picture and fax viewer.

    Yes I would have to agree with you there. Plain and simple yet magnificent

    Ah yes, the one which lacks the ability to read archives, lock in on a zoom level, and a couple of other irks. Truly another brilliant example of good software engineering.

    Edit:

    And I did work on my own image viewer for a project too. And unless you can add support for both rar and zip files, have various levels of zoom, and other options, CDisplay is your best bet for a manga reader.

    ACDSee is your best bet when reading monthly H manga though.

    You don't know what you've been missing.
    Then again, ignorance is bliss.

    I never wanted high speed connection until My friend showed me that he could download 1MB a second


    Mysterious, no?

    I dunno... downloading random files from the internet... always the smartest thing to do right?
