    ## Changelog ##

    v6.24.2014:
    -Updated the 32-bit version from 9.32 alpha to 9.34 alpha
    -Added 64-bit support with 64-bit 7zip 9.34 alpha

    v5.6.2014:
    - Wrote initial Batch file and compiled to .exe format.
    - updated 7zip (compiled within #MangaMagic) to version 9.32 alpha
    - Created icons from scratch in Photoshop with the Ubuntu font.


    History:
    I was tired of having to make my .CBZ files manually on my phone, or on the PC in 7zip manually, one folder at a time, so this morning I created a simple Windows app from a batch file that does it all for you, with the best compression flag set (-mx9).


    The Project Objective:
    My overall goal of this project is to provide a simplified way of making these, to save people loads of time. It supports .CBZ, .CBR, and .CB7 formats. Just drag your picture folder to the exe of your format choice.


    Testing:
    Eventhough this app has 7zip 9.34 alpha (latest 7zip release) embedded inside, this app is plenty stable, and works every time without fail. Supports XP through 8.1 without issues.

    I forgot
    Neat, I have a few friends who ask me for digital manga all the time and I always hated doing this stuff manually. Will download and give it a try

    Hmm.. this looks neat.

    BTW: why not use filetrip for hosting ?

    I'm already a Mediafire member, so filetrip seems redundant.

    Ended up having to redownload my manga so I decided to use this tool, and it's not working for me. I'll drag chapter folder to the cbz version and nothing happens. Using the 64-bit version on Win 7 64 bit
