I don't know why, but on the app there are different chapters than on the web. For example, on the app there are chapters 1-3 and 70-76 of Captain Tsubasa, but on the web there are 1-3 and 103-109. It'd be great if there were any way to download both batches of chapters.

    Please could you give me another example where this happen? Because Captain Tsubasa does not seem to be available in my country so I can not test it

    I use android too, maybe they store the hidden chapters on the android app? I couldn’t download chapters 4-51 of that manga, it’d be nice if there were a way to download them even if they hid them from the web/app.

    I checked and it happens too with Reborn, there is a list on the app and another on the web. Maybe it only happens with mangas only in spanish?

    It seems that it happens with more mangas, independently of the language. For example, Bakuman in english have diferent lists too.

    Probably it’s just a matter of licenses, maybe they have different ones between the website and their mobile app. But the weird thing is that even spoofing the Android app I get a different list for Captain Tsubasa (1-6, 21-34) from what you said in the first post (1-3, 70-76) so it seems that they base the availability of public chapters on other parameters (perhaps the country of origin of the IP?)

    So maybe using a vpn would allow to access more chapters, if not all the catalog? With Opera’s vpn I can access chapters 1-6, 96-109.

    I’ve changed the source on the downloader to the Android App and it shows the same chapters that choosing the web as source ( I searched again for new chapters after changing the source).

    Oh, I see. And there is any way to change the source of download? Or is not yet implemented?

  8. Red Squirrel repo owner

    Currently no, there is no way to change the source for chapters list. I’ll add it in next nighly build

    I can confirm that now in the latest nightly build there is an option to select the source (web browser vs android app) also for chapters list. If you have a VIP membership you can download it now from Patreon page, otherwise you need to wait for the next public release 👍

    Thank you so much for your work!

    BTW, I’ve been tinkering with the android app. If you delete the cache and storage from the app, you start the mangas from the first chapter, and receive the next chapter each week, so you could get all the library as if they were new titles. I don’t know if there is a way to do this on the downloader, or if it could be added.
