4chan (Xchan) thread image downloader


Current version: XChan 2.5B

- Due to .NET framework being shitty and downloading empty images I added a checking function that auto deletes the file and re-downloads them
- Added a board downloader

There's probably bugs somewhere, but use it properly and you shouldn't encounter any.

P.S - This is most probably the last update I'll make on this project.

Current version: XChan 2.5
Here's the tl;dr:
I'm a lazy guy, 4chan changed its source so I eventually had to update the program.
I've rewritten it in C# and added multithreading (each thread is downloaded on a seperate process thread).

I haven't had any time to actually test for bugs so apologies for that.
Lastly, this is working with 4chan ONLY at the moment. I might update it and add other boards later.

A final note: Any version prior to 2.5 will not work with 4chan (I cannot confirm about the other boards as I no longer use them)


  • Multithreaded
  • Automatically rechecks threads for new content after downloading
  • Supports a number of different Chan based boards
  • Quick, efficient and easy to use
  • Downloads threads (including images, thumbs, scripts and .css) with the .html
  • Saves thread URL list on shutdown and reloads list during start up
