Fusker Generator NG is a replacement for Fusker Gen. Here are the some key features:
All you need to start a fusker session is clicking "Add Items" button. When you click that button a blank box window will appear. You can paste here a list of albums, e-mail addresses or file url's. When you add an album name or an e-mail address here NG will find the PB album name.
When you add a list you can start all sessions by clicking "Start All" button. NG will queue items and start fuskering. Depending on your list NG will start queued items one by one when there are available threads. Instead of clicking "Start All" you can click "Discover All" buttons. When you click this button FG will find album names, check if they are private or not and and find Z-Counts of private albums. You can start individual sessions by clicking start form right click menu.
When a new fusker session start for the first time it will load formats from Default Format List. You can see and change the default formats by clicking "Format Editor" tab.
The Red Pin icon enables editor mode. You can use format editor text formatting features for anything without corrupting default File Formats or Directory formats. Format editor supports undo feature too. If something goes wrong you can undo your last change by clicking blue undo icon. Old Fusker Generator Tools are located on Format Editor Tool Box.
*.fgd extentions removed. You can store all file and directory format inside *.fgf files. To be able to understand which files contains directory formats you can give a descriptive name. For example you can name your directory format files starting with "D-" letters. That change makes Format Combox usage easier. To use your old *.fgd files you can rename them to *.fgf
If you seperate file and directory formats and want to search for only file or directory formats you can switch to Progress View and choose a format from Format column. [Default Directories] will use only formats from Directory Formats list. [Default Files] will use only File formats.
As I said before when we start a new fusker NG will load formats to session from default format list. When fusker starts you'll see Format column will start to show [Session Formats]. That means formats loaded to session and changing default format list won't affect formats loaded to session. If you want to make changes to Default List and you want to load formats to a session again you can choose "Default Formats" again. In this case when you start that session FG will load formats from default format list again.
FG Sessions will remember which formats completed before. For example if it completes searching for Picture###.jpg format it won't search for it again even you reload that format. Half completed formats will start from begining.
If you save formats to a *.fgf file these file names will appear under Format Column combo box. You can select these files directly. When you start fusker FG will load formats from these files instead of Default Formats list. After fusker starts Format column will turn to [Session Formats] and that means changes to these lists won't change working sessions. You can't change Formats while fusker session working. Stop session to make changes.
You can start a new Fusker Session with only successful formats. This search is useful to find new added files to account. If you discover IMG####.jpg format for an account you might want to search for that format again in the future to find newly added files. To be able to start that search you need to choose [Success Formats] from Format Column combo box.
Right click menu will work all selected rows. You can select multiple rows with Ctrl+Click like you do in any windows list. For example when you select multiple rows and choose "Remove" from right click menu NG will remove all selected rows.
Row Checkboxes are useful to enable or disable some sessions. If you want to pause a session for a while and want to continue it later you can disable row. It is useful to understand which rows you are focused on. Remove All and Start All buttons will only work on enabled rows. You can force a disabled session to Start. Just right click on that row and choose Start.
You can directly exit Nav.Net NG while FG working. In this case NG will automatically pause all working sessions and save them. When you restart Nav.Net clicking "Start All" will start all enabled rows at once.
Some Example Uses
Example Use 1
Fusker Generator NG behaves differently to public albums. When you start fuskering a Public Album it will find files and folders. You can repeat searches in the future to find newly added files to account. If NG finds a new image it will display row with bold font.
Example Use 2
You discovered a new format and want to search for all saved albums with only that format. Select albums you want, Right Click and choose "Modify Selected Items > Test Single Format". A dialog will appear and paste your format into that dialog box. Format column will display format inside double quotes like "Picture###.jpg" When you start fuskering FG will search for only that format on all albums you selected.
Example Use 3
You grabbed a file name list from a MySpace page. That list contains image URL's from differen accounts. If you directly paste that list FG will search for this accounts with only these image formats. If you want to continue fuskering with different formats you can change it by choosing a format list from Format Combo Box.
