Just an update here, I have tried multiple times to get a hold of the dev across a few different mediums so that he can build the Python 38 wheel for Windows. I could not get a hold of him, and I could not build the wheel myself because it would keep failing (something about a missing raros.hpp). To fix that issue is beyond my programming knowledge, so I ditched it.
I don't have very high hopes of unrar-cffi being fixed or maintained by at least the original dev, unless they are just taking a very long hiatus.
Yeah not sure about how reliant the unrar-cffi dependency will be updated going forward based on the lack of updates to 3.8x.
Plus with alot of dependency problems compiling even on non-windows machines, I might go back to using the libunrar library instead of the unrar-cffi (which is just a wrapper for unrar but in C++ so it's mucho faster)....have to debate the pros/cons of each I think.
Any further thoughts on this? The dev did get back to me saying he would look into it, but that was over 2 months ago with no visible progress. I tried building the wheel for Python 3.8 myself a few different ways, but I have no idea how it's actually working, and it kept failing due to some compatibility issue or something.
Yeah actually. I revisited this a few days ago after some other people were having problems installing unrar-cffi on a *nix based OS - it's really been troublesome and I'm not even sure of the added benefit over libunrar.
So, I removed the dependency from the custom CT version bundled within Mylar. Which means that the requirements.txt would no longer need to have unrar-cffi within it, which should alleviate a tonne of problems that users have been having with it (well hopefully at least).
I should be able to push it into python3-dev either today at some point, or at the latest tomorrow.

Your ct_settingspath should be pointing to the .Comictagger folder inside the mylar folder, not to the mylar folder itself.
Doesn't that depend on what you've set as the path for the comictagger settings folder? Which I've set to the root as suggested by EH previously? I have no .Comictagger folder, probably due to the setting the config.ini I posted.
