Bluefire reader crash by Armaell

Armaell's avatar

I didn't knew of the bluefire reader, ok, I don't know about a lot ! I just use Moon+Reader for my Android, and the integrated reader of Sigil, my ebooks file editor.
And I can say, he is pretty good ! (at least for the windows version) .. ok, I just tested it like 30s, but it looked good. (some features like the number of columns adaptation were cool, and others like the lack of focus on dialogs were annoying. but hey, can't have everything).

The reason I'm talking about this reader is thankful to the report of someone (yes, it's the name he signed, too bad, the mail informations informed me it was actually Aladeanra).
My ebooks (nearly all) made Bluefire crash ! Yup, my files are this powerful 8D
Actually, it's just one code line (css) used to make the text on covers to be centered on the page, and when a css isn't supported by a reader, it should ignore it, but Bluefire really didn't liked this one and crashed ... not good.

For the time being, all .epubs have been edited and are now Bluefire-crash-free, with a little addition on covers. I think they are a little better.
In the same time, I have mailed Bluefire to warn them of this bug so they can patch it.

Thank you Aladeanra for noticing me. (and Bluefire will probably thank you by proxy)

Evil God Average V01 by Armaell

When you read for the first time a story trope, you are like : My gawd, this is SO genius ! Totally original and of course, you totally buy in the story.
When you end it, and look around, and suddenly you see : oh, 15 stories on a dungeon master...
Now, which one is the original ? The true one ?

Nothing to be done, let's read them all and keep the best one !
... And for now, I only read crappy other ones ...
So let's remember LOTR is considered like the father or the fantasy, but it's actually not the creator of it, it is used as reference today because it's simply the best one on his age. Now you can read Evil God Average and think how I compared it to LOTR and say me : "You are totally going overboard, dude"

Error 403 by Armaell

Armaell's avatar

After I moved the epub/pdf files from an external storage to be stored directly on the website 10 days ago, I got more than 600 visitors and nearly 300 downloads.

The problem is that I got two reports of download links not working and displaying an error 403. I think it's a pretty alarming percentage for the number of visitor, reduced by those who would take the time to hit the contact button.

I did some modification for the possible cause (for those who knows, I changed the chmod) and hope it will correct it. Now, if it don't, please contact me and I will try to continue to correct that.

For the time being, I will entertain myself by doing errors page.

Edit : Thank you Kareljuh for finding the problem !

Forgotten Conqueror V01 by Armaell

There is two type of doing things : Being original, and push things further.
Of course, doing something new is rare and hard. So, let's say it, in Forgotten Conqueror there is not a lot of new ideas. But here is how you can become a master of those tropes.

OP MC, Fantasy world, Reincarnation, Academy School and so on. We're used in this writing style. But Za1d3 make something not a lot of amateur authors are able to do : having depth. Everything is thought and you just have to look at "The World", an encyclopedia of his world to understand it.

Actually, you just know it when a Fantasy story don't start by "An earthling is transported to another world". Here no Truck-san, the easy trope, you have a local born guy : just having this setting is often enough proof that the author is more serious than the average, in my point of view.

Take pleasure to read this first volume.

Baka-tsuki epub generator by Armaell

Armaell's avatar

LIKE HECK

That will be my line today ... After completing Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, I wanted to start Mushoku Tensei until I found this baka-tsuki epub generator.

Now I'm in despair, I was doing those epubs of Baka-Tsuki since you couldn't found them on their respective page. Now you can download them in one click... guh ~~

Well, I respect the work, I also work in a semi-automatic way, it's just that my generator is a generic one (working in the same way on Baka-Tsuki, Wordpress, Blogger, RoyalRoad or other webfiction hosts), so it need that I do some manual editing after, and still take me some time of work.

SO, I won't do "Baka to Tesuto to Syokanjuu" like I wanted to, since it can be found on the generator. BUT, strangely Mushoku Tensei is only up to volume 2. But well, I also found them on [tehflyingjam's dropbox] (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/76218144/index.html). Not too bad, lot of hard work off my shoulders, good for my reader ^^

I'll find a place to add links on other epub's makers

Changement of files' host and presentation by Armaell

Armaell's avatar

24 days since my Library have started. The number of visitors is steadily growing, and so the downloads.

Until now I used an external host for my files box.com so to reduce the load on my website. The thing is, in 24days, you used 25% of the monthly bandwith of my offer. and as said, it's consumed faster and faster. It look like safe for now, but I want to prevent the day where I'll face the message "you have used all your bandwith this month" ! Won't be fun yo have everybody unable to get the epubs and pdf, destroying the whole purpose ...

Well, in a way, I'm pretty happy, it mean it's successful o/
And it also mean, I'm moving all my files on the website host. guh~~ And I'll be praying the whole thing won't collapse ! Please hand me your prayers too !

Aside of that, I have changed how books in series are displayed. With the last big addition of Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, just displaying the serie page took 4 screens high of my laptop, ahah, definitly not good.
So I'll hope you'll like the new display.
