I believe the ThumbGen developer got tired of people being ungrateful and borderline rude. Given the amount of time, skill, effort and love that must go into creating something like ThumbGen (and ThumbGen Designer,) giving it all away free is a major charitable donation to the users. But some users tend to become entitled and start with "Your program is not working, when are you going to fix it?" attitude instead of realizing that this is all a hobby for the developer costing him time with family or time that could be spent earning money.

After a while, such developers are likely to decide to withdraw (change user names, essentially) and keep any further improvements to themselves. I believe the current ThumbGen version is 6, though the publicly available version is 1.3.9.2

General apps that are not Med specific could have requests made on the developers site, if you can find it. They may not come to this forum at all.

I have made some changes to ThumbGen. Details are in http://www.mede8erforum.com/index.php/topic,19397.msg116086.html#msg116086

That is version 1.4.0.0. That thread is for 1.4.0.0 version of ThumbGen and up. Discussion of ThumbGen 1.3.9.2 and earlier should stay in this thread.

I have posted a link there to download the ChangeLog, Installation instructions (same as before) and the application.

I haven't been on this forum for a while now but still a mede8er user. I had all but given up on thumbgen and movie scraping for several months after the developers said they were done improving on version 1.3.9.2
I just logged in to say thank you and god bless your kind soul for continuing to improve the tool, Sir Mike!

For some unkown reason the imdb rating are no longer correctly imported. It looks like it always takes 6.0 as the rating.
