Read Comic Book Archive file + Usefull Navigation Toolbar

Post by d03g03l » Wed Apr 27, 2011 7:26 am

About Comic Book Archive (.cbr, .cbz, .cbt, .cba, .cb7) : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_Book_Archive_file
and yes we can open Comic Book Archive with 7zip or similiar software, but u need to extract it first (and some not, like pow*rarchiv*r can read image inside archive w/o extract it first, ofcourse not for free)

and i hope Preview image & Full Screen View have more ez Navigation Tool bar & small Preview of other pages/image like P*casa did

i knew there are plugin to read archive but i found weird thing when manually change .7z to .zip & xnview can't read that file, so i assume same as .cbz/.cb7, but if its work, thatz pain in the *** :shock: if u have dozen Comic Book Archive

so it will be nice to read image inside Comic book archive...
and for free ofcourse :D :D :P 8) :wink: :mrgreen:
thx

.cbz files should already go -- just change/add a .zip extension. XnView has fairly good luck with viewing the contents of those, either on its own or via 7-Zip's "Open outside" context-menu command. With the latter, you can "pass" .cb7's to XnView with the same file name change.

From where I sit, until Pierre can add parsing more archive types (and by this I mean "more common and conventional archive types") to XnView, the "rename>use-7ZFM" route is a fairly simple and feasible work-around.

i knew that trick, changing few files extension 1, 2 or 3 will make no problema, what bout dozenz?? damn...
cbz itself just .zip that change extension become cbz so, if u have some picts and compressed it to zip and manually change it file ext. to cbz = u just made urz cbz file and work with all comic book readers. but still it can't be opend with xnview...yes i tried to change cbz to zip and dosnt workd

adding few more files like .cbr, .cbz, .cbt, .cba, .cb7) support in xnview will make no problem i thinx.. and full screen side by side viewing will be greatz t00) ... for ez-ly read comic or e-book...
