Use SFV to verify files, if no PAR2 available
« on: February 28, 2007, 03:56:36 PM »
Every now and then, there are posts without any PAR2 files. But usually they do have an SFV file to verify all the parts. In that case, it would be convenient to be able to import an SFV file (right click in PAR2 tab). If the verification succeeds, the post could then be unrared.

Thats exactly the same thing I want to request. Right now I am downloading a post without par file but with a sfv file. So alt.binz won't unrar it automatically.

Thank you very much!

i was wondering if implementing sfv-support would a lot of work. since quickpar can use sfv to see wether all data is around it might be handy enableing auto unrar when no par2 files are around.

I would like to see that, too. Just a few minutes ago I finished a huge download with no pars, but with an sfv file. All files turned out to be OK, so alt.binz could have unrared it.

If sfv files are supported, one possibility to add this feature would be in the PAR2 tab: right click -> "Import SFV file(s)".

or drag and drop... it would be handy and nice to be realized but only if its not to much work since most of the time there are par2 files...

I would like to see that feature, too. There are enough posts withour a par-set. so maybe the option could be in the par2-settings: if no par2 is present, load sfv.
