MangAI update making progress

I was able to implement the MangAI code I mentioned before to improve string chapter detection. This is really useful in separating bonus/special pages from the regular pages, as well as keeping these other pages grouped together.

Next I want to look into improving the page ordering within string and special chapters. For example, it’s not uncommon to see the first page of a string chapter not have a page number, with the second page being denoted with a “2”. I want to try to imply the “1” in the first page to make sure it is properly sorted.

There’s also the issue of handling special pages within special chapters. Currently, MangAI ignores their special page status since it can be hard to know, for example, if “omake” refers to this page being part of a special chapter or if it means a special page within the special chapter. Confused yet? Well, I’ll see what I can do to sort this out in code ^^

Please contact me if you have any suggestions or problems you would like to see improved in MangAI. I pay very close attention to user feedback.

    Made the MSM AI improvements to special / string chapters listed above. I’m happy with the results.

    One last thing before releasing the update, I want to improve epub / mobi table of contents. Currently, MangAI is only basing navigation links based on folders. This works fine with the chapters of a volume are in separate folders, but when all the scans are in one big volume folder, we aren’t getting chapter positions. The new code will use MSM interpretation to determine chapter start positions within a volume.
