I just found this script and would like to know if it really works with MM3, the last response by the developer was back in March 2009 and noone has answered the latest post.

And if it does work, can someone tell us exactly what to do to make it work? Thank you.

It should work, you need to edit the script though. It's described in this post: viewtopic.php?p=131782#p131782

Thanks nohitter,

But does that mean that if I use the script on page 4 (to be used with AutoDJ) that I don't have to do that?

I would certainly guess so since that was posted well after the original "fix" post.

I'm using MM 3.2.1.1297 and the script I'm using is working fine. It's called "DJTiedSongsGroups.vbs"

You need to add this to your "Scripts.ini" file:

Code: Select all
[DJTiedSongsGroups]
 FileName=DJTiedSongsGroups.vbs
 DisplayName=AutoDJ Tied songs groups
 Language=VBScript
 ScriptType=4


And this is the scrips for the DJTiedSongsGroups:

Code: Select all

    '  (groups of songs must previously be tagged as linked)
    '
    ' AUTHOR: Tanguy Kervahut
    ' DATE  : 11.10.2008
    '
    ' INSTALL:
    ' - Copy script to MediaMonkey's "Scripts" folder
    ' - Add an script entry to file Scripts.ini (example shown below)
    '
    ' USE:
    ' For songs you want in one group, change the Custom3 field for these songs to
    '  the same value, beginning with LT (this indicates a "linked track").
    ' E.g. for an album "Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon" you can change the Custom3 field
    '  for all tracks to "LT Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon". (without quotation marks).
    ' Bear in mind that shorter values for the Custom3 field are faster (so better "LT PF-DSOTM")
    ' Order of tracks in a tied group is indicated using the standard Track Number field.

Does anyone know if MM plans on integrating this in a future release? It's a very helpful script/function... Thanks to all the programmers for time/effort/work

I've installed MM4, and this script does not work anymore. Basically, the custom config is not available anymore in the Auto-DJ options. I didn't see anything about changes to script handling for MM4 that would affect this. My other scripts work, but those are normal scripts triggered through the menu, not hooks on an internal function like this one.
Does anyone know what changed? If not I'll raise an issue about this.
Thanks!

Hi Rycher,

Current MM4 developer builds might have problems with the "Auto-DJ" (4) and "OnPlay" (2) type entries in the Scripts.ini file.
When I tested the TiedSongsGroups (not your AutoDJ version) on MM4, I think it didn't work either (uses Scripts.ini Type 2). But I'm not sure as I updated some things in the script, including using the newer event model Script.RegisterEvent... and with that it certainly works. Have you tried other Auto-DJ scripts on MM4?

BTW: It would be great if you could put your DJTiedSongsGroups script in a MM installation package, so it can be put on the first post of this thread (or another thread if you prefer that).

Cheers,
Steegy

I haven't had a lot of time for this recently, but I want to have a closer look at all this and make it work in MM4. Once I have a running version, I'll make a MM installation package for it (remind me if I forget :wink: ).

Ok, forget what I said, I must be more tired than I thought... It's been running by itself in MM3 for so long that I forgot how it was configured in the options.
I forgot that I had to select my script in "Add files from", I thought that it would automatically be setup because of the script :oops:

Seems to be working ok. Now back to your regularly scheduled program...

Possible improvements as discussed with daztrue over PM:

daztrue wrote:The first time one of the 'generated' tracks was selected it played from that point onwards. It was probably a gremlin in the works as it didn't happen again - although I'll let you know if I detect any pattern or further occurances.
Yes, for now the script works like that. It just looks if the 1 track before and the 1 track after are OK (previous and next track in the set, or medley in your case) and then starts playback of the selected song without starting from the beginning (which happens only if linked tracks before had to be added because the 1 track before was not correct).
Like you suggest, better would be that the script stores the 'link' (blank for non-linked songs) of each track that starts playback, and compare with the 'link' of the next song that starts playback. When a song starts playing that has a different 'link', it should jump to the first song of the set: the script would 'run up' in the now playing list until it reaches the first song in the set and start playing, or if the set is incomplete it should add the necessary songs in front and start playing the first song (the last one added). By checking the 'link' of the previous song, it's still possible to manually skip playback to an other song in the set, once the set has started playing.

daztrue wrote:It'll be no surprise to you that when I randomised the list and a medley track was selected, the rest of the medley was added to the list again. I realise it would be far more complicated to remove the generated tracks when selecting randomise, although it's food for thought!
Probably the most logical approach in such a case would be an addition to the above. If a song starts playing with another 'link' than the previous played song, look if all previous and next linked tracks are present in the correct order in the now playing list. If not, (or this can also be done straight away, always) remove all the tracks in the now playing list that have that 'link', and re-add them in the correct order. Depends on how fast MM can do this of course.

daztrue wrote:The one other thing that would require more in-depth programming - again, food for thought - would be the benefit of the script not causing MM to lose memory of which tracks have been played in the list. Basically, what I observed (before repeatedly playing the list) was a shuffle play, of which the included medley track was the second to last to be selected, which, of course, generated the rest of the medley, which played accordingly, BUT afterwards I was expecting the one unplayed track in the Now Playing list to then play. But of course, as I explained before, the track after the medley then played, after which, tracks continued to be picked at random that had already played. Am I right in saying that without the script, a shuffled Now Playing list wouldn't have repeated already played tracks, thus memorising them until the list has finished?
Hmm, I'm not sure, but I think MM should work like you say. I'll try with and without the script and if the script changes the behaviour I'll think about a fix. I think MediaMonkey uses it's playback memory now for the shuffle mode...(which is great to avoid hearing the same 'random' song every time). If necessary we can add/remove tracks from MM's playback memory (in its database) automatically I guess. Just care should be taken that the playback statistics/history change as little as possible, as other scripts (Auto-DJ) probably heavilly rely on this.

Also to do: add icon IconIndex = 16 to context menu item + move the item 1 section up + add to context menu of Tree and NP.

Hi again!

Just had a thought. Wouldn't the script conflict with certain Playlists/AutoPlaylists? Obviously it would depend on the settings. I just wondered what would happen, how severe it may be etc. For example, a playlist set to only play R&B, and a selection of tracks using the script, predominately rock, but with one or more listed as R&B.

FAO Steegy (although all comments welcome!):

I recently noticed that whenever I opened MM(3) shuffle would be on, and would turn on just as I exited. It wasn't happening in other Windows/MM accounts/libraries with the same setup. I even installed the debug version of MM on another PC and created the same setup, and found that the issue no longer occurred - until I installed LinkedTracks.

I checked one of my other accounts, which previously was fine, although now had tracks in it using LinkedTracks, thus the same scenario now occurs in that account/library.

As a reminder: my DB are on my NAS, and as of recently, so now are my INI files.

Any ideas why this is happening, whether you can sort it, and whether this function (one way or another) will feature in MM4?

Here is an update of the DJTiedSongsGroups script.

For a party I wanted to have some smooth music earlier in the evening, and switch to a rockier/dancier mood during the evening. But not have to go on the computer to change the source.

I've modified the script, now in the config window there is a field to specify a second source playlist, and a date time field (enter the date in format: 2011-11-23 18:10). The first playlist is used before the specified date/time, and after that time it switches to the second playlist (if one is specified).

NOTE: with MM4, there is a error that pops-up whenever multiple tracks are added at once (with the option By album or tagged tracks). Everything seems to work fine, but you get a pop-up message that you have to close. I've started a thread about that problem, no news yet on that.

Here is the updated script:

' DATE  : 11.10.2008
'
' Modified: 29.10.2008
'    -Added "By album" option
'    -Change the mechanism, it now adds a whole group (or album) at once. So it can add more tracks than the maximum specified for auto-dj when
'      a group has more tracks than the maximum.
'
' Modified: 24.02.2009
'    -"By album" option now gives the same weight to all albums (before an album with more tracks had more chances to play)
'    -For multi-disc albums, ask if whole album should play or only selected disc.
'
' Modified: 17.03.2009
'    - Fix a small bug when tracks don't have track order
'
' Modified: 05.12.2011
'    - Added a second source playlist, and a date/time field after which the second playlist should be used.
