Hi I have a minor problem, I'm using a kindle but with koreader, kcc work great wonders by proccesing the images to the correct resolution and with landscape images and stuff. the problem is when using folders. I'm packaging the images in a nice cbz, and everything's perfect except when a folder inside the cbz contains a dot like for extras. kcc names the folder (in my case)
ch.-0024
ch.-0025
ch.-0026
etc. but with a folder with a dot (in this case ch.-26.5), it renames like ch.-0026.0005
but all the others folders stay the same and that naming convention makes it that koreader read the order of the chapters like
ch.-0024
ch.-0025
ch.-0026.0005
ch.-0026
making that the extra episode is before the main episode, after a lot googlling the problem was that all the folders should account for the dot like
ch.-0024.0000
ch.-0025.0000
ch.-0026.0000
ch.-0026.0005
then koreader will read the order correctly, my question is, is there a way to do automatically with kcc? maybe making it that when kcc detects a folder with a dot it accounts for that renaming all the chapters accordingly? or do I have to do it manually for every cbz? thanks!

if you're asking why I'm using kcc when using koreader, even they recomend this (http://koreader.rocks/user_guide/#manga)

That issue should be fixed in the latest v5.6.5

What version are you in?

Edit: actually the fix I was referring to was only applicable to file names, not chapter names. Let me take a look.

Edit2: I just disabled chapter number renaming OR disabled chapter renaming entirely, please test both. I'd prefer to do the former if it works for you.:

https://github.com/axu2/kcc/releases/tag/v5.7.0-sub

https://github.com/axu2/kcc/releases/tag/v5.7.0-slugify

If possible, please test the filenames here as well: https://github.com/ciromattia/kcc/issues/235

EDIT3: If none of those work, then it's a Koreader issue not sorting the chapter names naturally. Does reading in the normal Kindle software work?

this is indeed a koreader issue, koreader NEEDS the folder naming to be uniform in order to be able to correclty see what chapter goes where, no things like:
ch.-24
ch.-25
ch.-26
ch.-26.5
ch.-27
ch.-28
ch.-28.5
this type of naming koreader can't work with and it reorders the folders so that the chapters with decimals appear before does without it. like this:
ch.-24
ch.-25
ch.-26.5
ch.-26
ch.-27
ch.-28.5
ch.-28
you can see this in the third link, where the chapter 1001.5 is first because it gets put before the chapter 1001 because 1001 does not include a decimal in it's name, but if all the chapters have a uniform numering system, then it works correctly, like this:
ch.-24.0
ch.-25.0
ch.-26.0
ch.-26.5
ch.-27.0
ch.-28.0
ch.-28.5
so that's why I asked if it was possible to make it so that the chapter renaming takes into account the decimals and put the same ammount of decimals in all the folder names.

edit. This type of reordering also happens when opening the file with calibre. If the folder don't have a uniform decimal syste, the order goes ch.-26.5 before ch.-26
edit2. someone else said this https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...21&postcount=4

OK, I just renamed the chapter folders numerically like how KCC currently does for image files. It maps to the full original name outside of the file structure, let me know if it works for you:

this does indeed solve the order issue but I was honestly thinking that It would be better to just rename the folders manually, that way the Table of contents of koreader would look nice. (when using cbz)

I see, the ToC looks fine in EPUBs for Koreader. But CBZ doesn't preserve the original names. That's definitely a problem.

What's the advantage of using Koreader over the built in Kindle software?

At this point, it's probably better to ask the Koreader devs to add natural sort for internal cbz folders. Renaming things has caused many issues for KCC in the past, so many page order issues.

koreader is a great ebook reader, it allows all kind of crazy stuff, it even allows for css modification on the fly, and is also a great PDF viewer there's a reason is ported to the main e-ink devices (kobo, kindle, pocketbook), as for the manga/comics, it allow for things like, OCR, zoom on panels, contrast adjust, dithering, etc

but yeah, I'm gonna open a feature request on the koreader github, thanks for your time!!

Hello. I'm new here, thanks for the great app !

Btw, recently I notice that the kindlegen.exe that I'm using is very old (2014). Should I update to a newer version of it ? Does it have any benefits ? And what version should I upgrade to if that the case ?

The latest version of kindlegen is included in Kindle Previewer (KCC will autodetect it.)

It's unknown if it offers any benefit over your old version, feel free to report any changes.

Hey there, is there a way to break up a converted epub or transfer it directly onto a device. The Cbz I am attempting to send is over 200mb, so I cannot use send to kindle.

thanks

Convert it to mobi in kcc and drop it into the kindles documents folder.

If you have macOS, you'll need Android File Transfer to do the usb transfer.

Alternatively, use the EPUB 200 output option.

EPUB is an intermediate format. When you choose MOBI output, KCC converts CBZ -> EPUB and then converts EPUB -> MOBI/AZW3.

You can drop a mobi/azw3 onto a Kindle directly into the documents folder via usb.

If you select EPUB 200 format, it skips the last step since Send to Kindle handles the conversion to AZW3. It also splits on 200 mb.

Mostly just a method difference. I prefer MOBI since USB loading onto the Scribe is simpler then uploading and downloading. And the covers are higher resolution. And I don't need to worry about the 200 mb limit.

Is there any plans to release this for Android? Or is there any Android alternative? For ongoing series it's kind of time consuming to go on PC for each new chapter and do the whole process, specially since when sending an EPUB to a Kindle from Android you can just edit the metadata yourself unlike sending it from PC where you have to use Calibre for that

No plans, there are plenty of android reading apps available. I hear koreader is popular for cbz reading, though I haven't used it personally.
