ImageFap Error

Post by SwiftNick » 26 Sep 2020, 15:13

I encounter an error on ImageFap, after downloading 5-6 galleries.
After that, it only downloads partial galleries, and shows the error message: "Too many requests, try again in 1 hour"

Anyone else encounter this error?

Imagefap recently introduced the "requests per hour" limit to make their website "more responsive". And the number of requests they allow now is too low. Like 100 pages per hour or so. So limiting the number of simultaneous connections and increasing the "delay between downloads" in the Extreme Picture Finder project settings should do the trick.

We're still looking for a perfect combination of the number of simultaneous connections and the delay between downloads, but it does look like it's going to be VERY slow imagefap downloads from now on :( And there is nothing ANY mass-downloading software can do about it since the limit is implemented on the server side and they use the combination of user IP and cookie to ensure it.

OK, all imagefap templates were updated with the following values:

Suggested number of simultaneous connections: 1
Delay between downloads: 3 - 5 seconds

Using these settings Extreme Picture Finder is able to download continuously without causing the 1-hour IP block. Yes, it's a bit slower than it used to be but that's how the imagefap owners want it to be :(
