Thumbs up [Fixed 2.26] V2.25 Comic covers

Quote:
When getting cover from comic files, use smart filename sorting to find the first filename, recognizing numbers inside the filenames.
Would it possible to provide a tweak that allows the use of the previous 'dumb' sorting convention for this - IIRC when I questioned what the convention was (years ago), the answer was 'canonical sorting'.

I have created 8000+ 'comix' using that convention. My file naming practices (which are automated), are specifically 'designed' to produce the right result with the old convention:

Code:
<title>.jpg         is the cover picture 
<title>_0000.jpg 
...                 are the images in the desired sequence
<title>_nnnn.jpg
Windows, Winrar, and my preferred CBZ reader all present <title>.jpg as the first image. In v2.22 and earlier <title>.jpg would be shown as the cover, but in v2.25 I get <title>_0000.jpg as the cover.

Added : my 'comix' aren't published comics, they're real photo collections, including time lapse sequences. I do have some (dozens) Korean Manwha, they're not the problem.

Been on a Vassa retreat, sometimes known as the "Rains Retreat", Vassa is sort of Buddhist equivalent of Lent, Ramadan, Passover etc. Yes, I know its the wrong time of the year, but I'm down under remember, where the moon is upside down... We had to abandon the retreat due to all the rain
