Mass downloads of My Downloads

Is there any way to group downloads together so that I can download them all at once? I've got all the files from the the PDF Superpack in My Downloads now, and I'd really like to not have to click each one, wait for the page to refresh, wait for the download to start, and then move on to the next.

I understand that Paizo needs to watermark each file, so external mass-downloaders (such as FlashGot) can't handle the links directly, but some functionality to either download the entire Superpack as one file via the pledge screen, or to check which files in My Downloads I'd like to get and have a "Download all selected" button, would be greatly appreciated.


Same question.


Thirded.


I too would love to hear a better way to download the whole pack without doing one at a time.


I would like this also but right now the site is too slow to handle it. The site would be crashing 20 times a day. Maybe when/if they ever make some changes.


This would be handy.


This would be a nice little feature...

I would like this feature as well.

This is a concern for me as well, but the concept of multidownloads is something I would very much like to see. I often buy my PDFs in batches and I subscribe to multiple product lines. So yeah, good idea IF the hardware supports it.

Dark Archive

With years' worth of purchases through the subscription service and many more pdf's being picked up from other publishers, I've thought a lot about this myself.

What if there was an option to bundle a set of PDF's and queue it up for processing later?

I wouldn't mind if it took a day or two until there were enough resources free to watermark and compress a couple of AP's or my collection of modules.

Say, get an email notification when the process is done?


+1 for this being done if at all possible.

This is something that's been requested several times. I'd love to do it but there are some technical hurdles in the way. We're in the process of reworking some key underpinnings of the site architecture, and that will help some, but I'm not 100% sure we have a good solution just yet.

Bundling up personalization requests and saying "come back later to download" would work in theory but I'm not sure people would respond well to being told to wait more than a few seconds. This is the internet, we expect everything immediately—it's just bits, right?

*realises who'll now get the blame if the May shipments ends up being late*

D'oh!

The Exchange

OReilly allow you to sync your ebook collection from them to Dropbox - see here. As soon as you buy something new, it appears in your Dropbox and automatically gets updated with errata.

The benefit here is that the sync to the users machine occurs automatically and the load on the Paizo side can be spread out a bit, as a lot of it occurs under their control as the subscription orders are done.

Any chance of something like this?

Speaking of patience (and a major resurrection of this thread), has there been any time to implement such a feature during the last 6 years ?

I got the humblebundle for Pathfinder and now I am supposed to click 126 links, open a tab on each and click on another link there. Seriously?

I cast Raise Thread….

Any developments on this front?

They need to take a hard look at what DriveThruRPG has done. They provide syncing software that can download all of your content and update it if needed. No need to unzip anything unless it's a package of multiple items. And they have watermarks.

Or even offload the job to DriveThruRPG like many other companies have.
