Forgive me if this is addressed earlier, but 146 pages of posts on this script!!!!!!!!!

I Need help on a tweak to a derived node query from the awesome supplied .ini file: Mask20 (retooled): Artists with LESS than THREE Albums...
Filter:Songs.ID = AArtistsSongs.IDSong ... ...GROUP BY ArtistsSongs.IDArtist HAVING Count(DISTINCT Songs.IDAlbum) <3)

I need the album count NOT to include the artist's appearances on compilations! I want only albums actually by the artist considered in the '<3' count.

I could screen <Album Artist> <> 'Misc" OR <Album Artist> <> 'Various'; but that screening needs to happen in the ALBUM COUNT portion of the filter's 'GROUP BY' only. (And my experimentations prove, unfortunately, that I really don't have much understanding of the query syntax)

elaboration (if helpful):
beneath a genre I want two nodes;
1) 'Superstars' (more than 3 albums, excluding everyone else. Screening is easy by initially not including 'Misc' & 'Various' Album Artist, then counting albums)
2) 'all the rest' - but this filter is harder because the album count for artists appearing on compilations will leave them off the node results. The ALBUM count is necessarily more elaborate - and beyond my skills!

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello!

I am using magic nodes and everything work good so far.
But i need help with one node that i trying to create.

I using the artist top tracks plugin to write the playcount of a song to the Custom4 field.
Now i try to create a node, that select the 3 Songs with the highest Custom4 field of every albumartist.

But i am not able to do that with the default filters:

Code: Select all
test2\<Album artist>\<Title with artist plus album|Sort by:Sum(Playcount) Desc|Top:3>


this only works for the subnodes, if i click the root node every track shows up. But i want to be able to make a playlist of all top 3 tracks from every albumartist, so i need this in the sub node. see image:

  • Image

then i installed the sql plugin and startet with a query that should return top1 per albumartist to start easy :D

Code: Select all
SELECT DISTINCT s.IDAlbum
     ,s.AlbumArtist
     , s.Album
     , s.SongTitle
     , m.max_votes

  FROM ( SELECT AlbumArtist
              , MAX (Custom4) AS max_votes
           FROM Songs
   WHERE IDAlbum > 0
         GROUP
             BY IDAlbum HAVING Count(DISTINCT Artist) = 1) AS m
INNER
  JOIN Songs AS s
    ON s.AlbumArtist = m.AlbumArtist
   AND s.Custom4 = m.max_votes


this gives me:
  • Image

with the sql query i have even more problems:
- sometimes more than 1 result per albumartist
- the max() dont work on text fields, so its wrong sortet

finaly i have to ask you sql-gurus for help.
it would also be nice to avoid duplicate tracks because of the same playcount of different tracks and same tracks on different albums.

could somebody of you show me how to select that properly?

thank you!

There's a Magic Node for this under the Random node.

Re: managing extensions /which Magic Nodes release is instal

On the extensions issue:

First check the following folder, which can be found at Documents and Settings\<User Name>\Application Data\\MediaMonkey\Extensions (This is in XP). There should be a folder there, for each of the scripts in question, containing the uninstallers.

If that's the case, open up Application Data\MediaMonkey\Extensions.ini in Notepad and add the following to it for Magic Nodes:

Code: Select all
[MagicNodes]
Title=Magic Nodes
Description=Create new tree nodes in highly configurable way
VersionMajor=4
VersionMinor=2
VersionRelease=0
VersionBuild=0
Type=script
UpdateURL=http://solair.eunet.rs/~zvezdand/MagicNodes.xml
ConfigurationScript=C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto\MagicNodes.vbs
ConfigurationProcedure=OptionsDialog()


Aso edit the versionMajor and Minor if different.

For the other script add:

Code: Select all
[RegExpReplace]
Title=RegExp Find and Replace
Description=Find and replace using VBScript/Regular expressions
VersionMajor=4
VersionMinor=3
VersionRelease=0
VersionBuild=0
Type=script
UpdateURL=http://solair.eunet.rs/~zvezdand/RegExpReplace.xml
ConfigurationScript=C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto\RegExpReplace.vbs
ConfigurationProcedure=OptionsDialog()


Again, edit version number if necessary. Hopefully they'll now show up and can be uninstalled.

If the folders are missing in MediaMonkey\Extensions or it seems just a faff - reinstall/update the scripts.

Track number isn't one of the choices in the edit menu (why?)

I had assumed that I could add \<Track Number> at the end of the string but that isn't accepted - invalid mask.

With the freely available versions of Magic Nodes the tracks are sorted according to the used fields in the mask, and even that is not working always as it should. Also, the <Track Number> field doesn't exist in the freely available versions.

However, there is the enhanced donation-only version that has implemented both the mentioned field and the better way to specify the sorting order of tracks using Sort by qualifier applied to the field/node on the global level (viewtopic.php?p=385447#p385447).

markeh wrote:What is the easiest way to tell which version of MagicNodes I have installed??

As the others already told you, the regularly installed add-ons should be seen in the Extensions dialog box. Also, you could see the version numbers of many of my add-ons in the top-right corner of the corresponding page in the Options dialog box.

To view the version number of the script, right click on the .vbs file from explorer and open with...Notepad.

managing extensions /which Magic Nodes release is installed?

Post by markeh » Sun Jun 01, 2014 12:19 am

I posted a question in another forum, asking how to determine which release I had installed of Magic Nodes.

The suggestion was to look at Tools->Extensions.

But the only thing that shows up there is skins. Neither Magic Nodes (which is installed and working) or RegExp (ditto) show up in the
Tools->Extensions list.

So..
1. How can I tell which release is installed?

2. Is there something wrong with the way they were installed, and is there anything I should do to fix it?
I'm pretty sure that I installed both by opening (double clicking) the .mnip file, but that was quite a while ago.

thnx,


.

You're installed extension should show under Tools > Extensions, all the ones I installed show there.
