In the last days I have stumbled across some strange NZB files, where the filenames are shown correctly in Alt.Binz, however when saved to disk they seem to get random names, without extensions. For all the other files this is no problem, as they would be renamed by the PAR2 files, however the PAR2 files are also without extension and as a result they are not recognized as such, so the whole folder remains untouched and no PAR2 checking / Renaming and Unraring is done.

If you find the PAR2 file and manually add the PAR2 extension to it and import it to Alt.Binz, all is fine. Except if any further PAR2 files are needed in which case these need to be manually renamed as well.

Have not found many of these filesets and since one can manually handle them, this not really a big problem, however I though RDL might want to have a look at it, so I have sent RDL a sample NZB of such a fileset, via PM.

when was it fixed? 

Properties of AltBinz.exe that I used shows Version: 0.44.3.2, which is that last available.

DLing last night, I got a number of DLs that came up with similar results to the following:

I tried re-DLing the same nzb using AltBinz version 0.44.2.1 and there is no problem, it comes out like it should

P.s. I'm not sure if the pix are showing...if not, here are the links

The fix has not been released yet. It will most probably be included in the next release.

So just be patient.

I rolled back to 44.2.1 and all seems fine with processing and auto unrar of nzb's using this obfuscation method. Look forward to update, but no problem otherwise. Alt.Binz still the best IMHO :)
