That's a lot of "also"s, I'll do my best to cover everything...

1) If it is showing the list of tracks successfully, which it seems to be in your screenshot, then I see no reason why the links wouldn't work. Do you get any ActiveX warnings? My only guess is that the script is failing to communicate back to MM in order to change the song's position.

2) The MM default skin has changed a few times since I wrote this script, I don't try to keep up.

3) Changing the "Embedded in field" option will only work if you embed the contents of the cuesheet into that field. This option allows you to store the cuesheet contents within metadata of the track, instead of having a separate file. If you choose a field and the field for the track does not contain cuesheet contents, it won't display anything.

4) "CueReader.vbs.htm" is written into your %TEMP% directory each time the script runs, if I remember correctly. You should be able to link an external stylesheet if you want to though, in order to change the styles. It doesn't matter where the file is, it doesn't need to be in the Scripts\Auto folder, in fact that might just mess up the original file.

5) Which button in the options panel doesn't seem to do anything for you?

6) The description is out of date, they are links now, not buttons.

7) The panel can be undocked like any other panel, by dragging the title section of the header to the location you want the panel moved to. This is an MM feature, not a feature of the script.

8) No, there is no scripting API that would allow me to make changes to the way the miniplayer displays. You can't override the track name, for example, only display it in a separate panel. There are a number of threads requested full cuesheet support, but I don't think it's a high priority for the developers. I don't know why, you'd need to ask them that.

9) I don't think I still have a version of the other script, sorry. I don't really use cuesheets myself, and often do a fresh install in order to keep up to date and remove the remnants of scripts I've been working on previously, so it will have disappeared from my installation a long time ago.

I hope I covered everything! And I'm pleased you like the script, despite the issues you're having with it.

Hi trixmodo,

Thanks for your great plugin! I'm new to MM and Cue Reader, wanted to test the latest versions in Win8.1 64-bit portable MM install, and so far your script doesn't work for me as expected. It shows the list of songs encoded in one flac file and auto plays it. But when I click on any link inside the cue songs list, nothing happens - it doesn't switch to any other song whether a song is playing now or not. Here's a sample cue playlist encoded in ANSI, it plays and manually switches just fine in MusicBee:

Code: Select all
REM GENRE Vocal
REM DATE 2014
REM DISCID 8709270A
REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v1.0b3"
PERFORMER " Gela Guralia"
TITLE "Dream Of Me"
FILE "Gela Guralia - Dream Of Me.flac" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    TITLE "Dream Of Me"
    PERFORMER "Gela Guralia"
    ISRC RUZZZ1400001
    FLAGS DCP
    INDEX 01 00:00:00


Another thing, the default CueReader style is black & grey & white with yellow for a song selected, so it doesn't match MM default skin colors. When I try to change MM Options - CueReader Settings, whatever I choose in Embedded in field except "None", just black & grey background shows up in place of CueReader with no song list visible. I tried to add CueReader.vbs.htm or CueReader.css to Scripts - Auto folder like mentioned here, but nothing changes if "Use external stylesheet" is marked. Also, another button in Extensions - CueReader - Options doesn't work at all. Anything I'm doing wrong? Can you post a suitable CueReader.css here that can work with default MM skin?

You also mentioned "Simply click the tracks button to skip straight to it" in CueReader description on your site, but I can't find that button in MM or CueReader default skin. Would it allow to change songs in cue list manually if clicked, and whereit is? And what settings to change to undock it?

Also, in MM Miniplayer mode a cue playlist & panel aren't visible, and it shows the same song name for any song from the cue playlist which is its file name. Is it possible to add showing cue playlist in that mode? Generally, why do you think cue support is not integrated properly or at all into MM as a feature?

In another thread about Almighty CUE Lord you posted "In fact this script appears to do everything that I was planning to do with the "Cue Reader" script!". I was trying to download that script for testing, but all links are dead now. Can you upload its last version somewhere pls like to mediafire?

Yes, but default it's docked, but you can undock it if you want to. What are your settings set to?

I have same "problem" as described byJackNeal

Is the panel inside mediamonkey? I have a flac file with corresponding .cue but I don't see any panel when I play the .flac file in my playlist

If the cuesheet has the same filename as the track (with a different extension) then it should automatically display a panel. You can go into the MM settings in order to change the way the panel displays.

Hi, could you please tell me how can I use the script?

I downloaded it, installed it, but I have no clue how to make it work.

I have an entire album in ape format with its cue sheet. If I try to open the cue file from Mediamonkey nothing happens. If I try to open the ape file it just shows me one single track of about 68 minutes..

Thanks in advance

Yeah, the script is only designed to handle UTF-8 files, not UTF-16. VBScript isn't good at working out how a file is encoded, so it's quite tricky.

The script is hardcoded to always work in UTF-8 mode from version 5.6. All the code in the UTF-8 is false part is the old code from version 5.5.

Cue Reader 5.6 - MoveCue converts from ANSI to Unicode

Post by A User » Wed Jul 30, 2014 11:03 am

Hello Trixmoto,

Your script does not only have problems with utf-8 but also with utf-16. I realized problems with reading cue-sheets after I moved or renamed associated mp3-files. The issue is caused by function MoveCue. If Utf8 = false, you do the following two calls:

Code: Select all
1037: Set cue1 = fso.OpenTextFile(temp,1,False)
1051: Set cue2 = fso.CreateTextFile(dest,True,True)


This causes the source cue sheet being loaded as ANSI and the destination being saved as UNICODE, no matter, which content the source has. So if you move or rename a file two times, it is no longer readable, because the already utf-16 encoded file will be converted again. So I changed line 1051 as follows, to fix the problem.

Code: Select all
1051: Set cue2 = fso.CreateTextFile(dest,True,False)

New version (5.6) is now available to download from my website. I've fixed the problems with UTF-8 encoded files.
