A nice program, and does as advertised, however most comics I've come across have either .cbr or .cbz extension (which are only rar or zip archives with the extention changed) and this program will not read them unless you change the extension back.

Man, the download page is in japonese. I don't know japonese. Could you please make it avaiable on the site?

This program is useful in extreme, bilinear filtering and auto-width look like a real comic (or manga)

This supports images in archives (only zip/rar files though), nice! Unfortunately it does support gif images but they are not animated.. I havent found a work around. further more I wish 7z format was supported as it's been my prefered format for a while now.

Yeah, same, I've been using 7z since I found out about them, but most the manga I download is in rar, so no big problem. Also, you can extract them and put them into a rar or zip, and it should work, right?

Just to let yal know, the bookmarks for the program are portable. You can either modify the bmk files directly and remove the drive (if your Manga, etc. is on the same drive as the program), or you can remove the drive in ComicsViewer.ini.

I removed the drive for both currentPath and currentDirectory (in the ini file). Not only does it not put the directory back on when you close the program, (or go from file to file in the same directory), it also uses this portable path in the bookmarks you create, so you don't have to modify them.

Just some advice, don't use file-open (when going to the next volume in a series), or you will have to edit delete the drive to make it portable again. Also, it automatically goes to the next file when you finish the current one. In other words, as long as you are in the same directory (which is the case if you put the whole series in one folder), then you only have to set the path once for that series (unless you open another series, and come back).

Hope that makes as much sense as it does in my head.

Awesome program BTW, thank you so much for sharing it with us. A year ago, I tried to, but couldn't easily, read manga on the computer. With this program I can - time to catch up on the mangas I wanted to read.

The website offers v1.49 for download. What seems to be the changelog (http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http://www.comicer.com/stronghorse/software/html/ComicsViewer.htm&usg=ALkJrhgEPXWZcFSCmqSZUtg_YEWnctpXGA#版本更新记录) mentions even v1.50.

I need somehelp

In the older versions, there used to be a scroll bar on the left side of the screen that allows you to scroll through the pages height or up and down.
that function does not seem to be in the newer version.
Is is possible to bring it back? or have I missed the enable option somewhere?
