Re: MegaDJ v2.59 [MM3+4] 2012: Better compatibility + time f

A couple of new releases brings us to 2.59. There were some time issues relating to local/global time, so that's been sorted. Also, I think the latest MM changed the main scripts path to the standard users path (rather than the "Program Files" path), so this release takes that into account. Download...

Re: MegaDJ v2.57 [MM3+4] 2012: WinXP/7/Vista, better random

Forgot to say before that 2.57 is out. This fixed the bug in 2.56 where a DLL is needed that the user may not have, thus causing MegaDJ not to load at all.

Download and install instructions for MegaDJ v2.57 from here as usual:

Happy new year all! :D

Re: MegaDJ v2.56 [MM3+4] Xmas-2011: WinXP/7/Vista, better ra

Based on a specifed MM Playlist, or a specific file directory, Play X number of tracks by any AlbumArtist lather, rinse, repeat As you probably know, MegaDJ can handle the file path as a field, so something like this is possible: SongPath~'blah' && AlbumArtist~'blah' However, I'm guessing after the...

Re: MegaDJ v2.56 [MM3+4] Xmas-2011: WinXP/7/Vista, better ra

MegaDJ v2.56 is now available. For people who have more than 30000 tracks, MegaDJ now includes ALL the tracks in your collection when picking random tracks. Many thanks to Anthony for picking up this rather serious bug. The more you had before, the worse it was. MegaDJ is now a smaller download, and...

Re: MegaDJ v2.55 [MM3+4] (2011-12-02): Now Win7/Vista compat

I'll actually get 37-39 queued most of the time? Because those last few excluded were dupes? Yep, that's right. That check for dupes doesn't seem slow to me, and it works well. True, but checking for song ID is different than checking for album. I seem to recall album being much harder/slower, but ...

Re: MegaDJ v2.55 [MM3+4] (2011-12-02): Now Win7/Vista compat

What's that quote, something like "the generation of random numbers is too important be left to chance" - haha :) This one unfortunately is going to be a pig to test for. Unless you have good experience with random numbers, I have a feeling that maybe what you're seeing is what one would actually se...

Re: Problem saving to Scripts folder in MM4 due to UAC

Thanks for the extra info. Am I right in saying that your idea is just to determine whether MM is portable or not, and therefore is the rest of my code okay? Would my code potentially break for non-portable users, portable, or both? I doubt many people would install the portable version in the Progr...

Re: MegaDJ v2.55 [MM3+4] (2011-12-02): Now Win7/Vista compat

The workaround for now is to refresh (F4) the two nodes which make up the rotation playlist. Make sure you have Easy_DJ and TOP_NE_PAS_EFFACER set up as random.

Re: MegaDJ v2.55 [MM3] - (2011-12-02) (MM4/Win7/Vista compat

MegaDJ v2.55 is out now, and should work for portable/non-portable/MM4/Win7/Vista and general UAC goodness. The MegaDJ nodes may move around, so for this release I suggest people only upgrade if they need to (despite a couple of new minor features). If you must go ahead and you are confident with W...

Re: MegaDJ v2.54 [MM3] - (2011-01-03) (escape char added)

@MonkeyEargasms - MegaDJ doesn't create m3u files, but instead uses the internal Mediamonkey song number. Each file is named, 1, 2, 3, 4 etc., for each node, and inside each file, you might see something like this for 5 songs: 129,466,1113,3027,5872 These are in the scripts/auto/MegaDJ folder, which...

Re: Problem saving to Scripts folder in MM4 due to UAC

Okay this is probably what I'll be using. It seems to work fine so far with MM3, MM4, and MM4 portable. If it's portable, it will save under the SDB.ScriptsPath. If it isn't portable, it will create a new folder under %appdata%, a location completely independent of Mediamonkey, and is therefore I th...

Re: Problem saving to Scripts folder in MM4 due to UAC

This was trickier than I expected. For (non-portable) MediaMonkey 3, the MM.DB database path was: C:/Users/<user>/AppData/Local/MediaMonkey However, it contained no Scripts folder inside that. Instead the scripts path is located: <MM3 standard installation path>/Scripts Obviously, Anthony's code wil...

Hey that looks good too, but like you say will need more checking out. I've cross-linked this page with here:

...where Thanasis has also come up with some promising solutions.

Re: Problem saving to Scripts folder in MM4 due to UAC

Hi Thanasis, Thanks a lot for those. The CurrentAddonInstallRoot function looks great. However, I'd like my script to work with Mediamonkey v3 as well, so I may use your previous recommendation, even though the code is a bit longer. What do you think? Anthony came up with an idea here too: http://me...

Re: MegaDJ v2.54 [MM3] - (2011-01-03) (escape char added)

Thanks again Anthony for the awesome feedback on MegaDJ and for pointing me in the right direction with this bug.
