Incomplete import of NZB's exported from Newshostin client
« on: February 06, 2013, 04:07:52 PM »
When AltBinz imports a NZB  generated by Newshosting client only the first segment of every file is pushed to the download queue.

Same NZB is correctly imported by Newshosting client and it seems to be good in a XML viewer

I don't know if this is a Newshostin client problem or just AltBinZ.

No banner or alert appears.

Windows XP SP3

And how will I check this if I don't have NZB file in question?

NZB link -> pm

From the original NZB specification:
Quote
subject string - A slightly munged copy of the article's subject. The segment counter (xx/yy) usually found at the end, is replaced with (1/yy). You can use the yy to confirm all segments are present.

There is no segment counter (xx/yy) in this NZB. Yeah one could say it is not needed, but the fact that we encountered this problem *just* now speaks for itself. Newshosting client NZB export implementation is WRONG.
However I've now covered this case also, so consider this fixed. Downside is you cannot be sure that all articles are there.
