Downloading small files first?

Postby Bob638 » Wed May 01, 2019 9:28 am

Hi,

Is there a way to setup Newsbin so that it automatically download files lower than a given size fisrt?

I want to use my own PAR and Extract tools, and for that, I need the first par file, usually very small, to get downloaded first.

That should work even when diffferent NZbs are queued, so that I can double-click on all PAR files for all downloads in the queue.

Thanks.

There's no mechanism to do that. The first small par is always the first file downloaded, assuming the posts aren't obscured so Newsbin can ID the file. Files later in the download list won't get touched till the files above them are processed.

I can think about it but I see no easy way to accomplish this. You could disable unraring but allow repair/rename to work then you process the rars after the fact.
