MangAI v1.03 released

New to version 1.03:
-Bug fix: Potential freeze during Manga Scan Model scan analysis
Program could freeze during MSM interpretation due to logic bug. This has been fixed.
-AI improvements to MPM and MSM interpretation
Small improvement to Manga Publication Model interpretation to better handle volumes with only one chapter available but that lacks chapter info (a rare case but still good to handle properly).
Several improvements to Manga Scan Model interpretation, including better sorting of mixed volume/chapter specification levels, improved ability to find cover pages that don’t include the keyword “cover” in the filename, and smarter handling of special page overspecification.

Thanks to everyone who has provided feedback. Many of the AI improvements come from analyzing test cases I would otherwise not have access to.

Also big thanks to those who recommend MangAI to their friends. Until I’m out of the red, the only way to promote MangAI is by word of mouth. The more popular this gets, the more time and resources I can put into it :)

    Added default settings profiles for:
    k4 (Amazon Kindle 4, i.e. the latest gen Kindle)
    ktouch (Amazon Kindle Touch)

    These will be included in the next update (which is currently not in development since no new bugs have been reported). For now, users of these devices can use the k3 profile since it uses the exact same settings.

    Feel free to contact me if you would like a default profile for your ereader added to MangAI.

    i do have one question if you can make it so when it does a double page (ie when 2 pages are together) if you can make it not shrink them

    @Robert Savage
    I understand where you’re coming from. Since landscape 2-page scans contain twice the content of portrait 1-page scans, resizing takes away much more detail (most notably to text). However, I don’t think avoiding resizing of landscape scans is a good approach since that ignores the ultimate goal of making the scans fit on your ereader (i.e. your screen is only so big, regardless of the scans you are displaying).

    If resized landscape scans do not look good on your ereader, I think a better idea is to force all of them to be split into separate portrait pages. Normally, MangAI uses an algorithm to determine which landscape scans contain independent pages that can be split vs. scans where the two pages should not be separated, but if you use the following settings, then every landscape scan will be split:

    auto_split_landscape_scans = true
    auto_split_r_first = true
    auto_split_keep_unsplit_scans = false
    allow_auto_split_color_scans = true
    auto_split_gray_strictness = 0.0
    auto_split_color_strictness = 0.0
    auto_split_buffer = 0.0
    auto_split_page_side_border = false
    auto_sense_landscape_folders = false

    Hope that helps.

    MangAI chops white rows and columns before determining if rotation is necessary. In this case, the portrait image had so much white row space chopped that it became landscape, thus it was determined that it should be rotated.

    I’ll fix this by making sure that rotation is determined before image trimming and chopping.

    Fixed. I’ll release the update either today or tomorrow.

    I now realize why the “nookt” settings were so wrong for the Nook Touch… nookt refers to Nook Tablet :P. I forgot that Nook has both a “Nook Color” and “Nook Tablet”, the Tablet being an upgraded version of the Color. I was just about the post v1.04 but now I’ll have to go back and change the ambiguous nookt into separate profiles nooktab and nooktouch.

    The update will come tomorrow.
