Make sure that you have the 'Update Calibre cover from ebook' option turned on.
Hi again,

thank you for your quick reply. I still only get the covers to show up inside of the ebook.

Has this perhaps something to do with the options on the generate cover tab? There are three checkboxes and I have none of them activated.

Should I only choose the option for the cover in the personal.ini OR in the general tab (both are set to allow covers)?

Thanks again in advance for any hints.

When setting bool custom columns, look for t/true/yes/y/1 and f/false/no/n/0 in any case and set true and false accordingly.

UPDATE Feb 24, 2014 - Remove obsolete beta versions

This test version is a bit more 'test' than usual.

It implements a feature to count how many ffnet stories you're trying to download and adjusts the sleep time between requests higher for more and lower for less from a couple seconds with just 1 to a max of 5 seconds with 10 or more.

The default sleep time for the background processing remains 5 seconds between requests.

This feature is about reducing the 'Fetching metadata' step for people doing small numbers of downloads.

Neat, I'll try this out. But I've set my ff.net sleep time to 30 seconds by default anyway, since I don't generally care how long it takes to download stuff - I set it running when I'm about to go do something away from the computer, and it's done when I get back. Will this override that?

Yes, for the initial meta data collection. Not for the background processing.

This is a first stab at it, if it works it will be smarter in future.

Attached is another test version where the reduction in metadata fetch sleep is configurable. Keep in mind that this applies only to fanfiction.net downloads.

Code:
[www.fanfiction.net]

## fanfiction.net is blocking people more aggressively.  If you
## download fewer stories less often you can likely get by with
## reducing this sleep.
slow_down_sleep_time:4

## ffnet is sensitive to too many hits.  Users are sensitive to long
## waits during the initial metadata collection in the foreground.
## When used, these settings will speed up metadata downloads in the
## foreground linearly.
tweak_fg_sleep:true
min_fg_sleep:1.0
max_fg_sleep:4.0
max_fg_sleep_at_downloads: 10

Version 1.8.12 - 24 Feb 2014
  • Fixes for FimFiction change, thanks FaceDeer.
  • Set Boolean custom columns from custom_columns_settings, looking for true/t/yes/y/1 vs false/f/no/n/0.
  • Add a feature to reduce sleep between ffnet requests in initial metadata collection for small download sets.
  • Make ffnet look-for-next chapter feature optional and default to off.

What story were you updating that gave the error? If I don't know how the error happened, it's hard to fix.
