Rather than use the 'X' (delete), click on the Tab description to open/Minimize that section.

Thanks for the reply, gpzbc, but what I meant was that if I close a section of MonkeyRok, using the 'X', I have to go into Tools > Options > MonkeyRok Settings > More (2) to open that section again.

If so, then it would be better to remove the 'X' from the interface.

Great! How do I do that? And which buttons do you mean?



You can either turn MR on/off from the "View" menu. Or you can with this toolbar button shown below.
Hope that helps.

Hello,

I recently discovered MonkeyRok. A great way to find additional information about artists and songs.
But after a lengthy test I have a couple of questions.
1. Most of the skins won't work with the latest version of MonkeyRok (6.2). The only one that does all the jobs for me (including the statistics) is the classic-tabs skin. Or am I doing something wrong? I am using the Metro M skin for Media Monkey and that MonkeyRok skin doesn't show any statistics.
2. Like already mentioned by other users, selecting the option to include the current album in the "Albums by"-tab has no effect. The album is not listed.
3. I have tried Foobar 2000 for a while. But I prefer Media Monkey. Foobar 2000 however has one great feature, namely displaying album info from Last.fm for the current album (if available). So far I haven't discovered how to get that managed in Media Monkey. Since MonkeyRok uses the biography info from Last.fm, it would be a great addition if there could be an extra tab with "album info" directly imported from Last.fm.

Thank you for a nice piece of work. I hope you will continue the further development.

(my native language is Dutch) :)

Hi trixmoto have you found out yet what causes this? I'd love to send you a screen shot of this problem as it effects not just the rated tracks played but also the genres played. If you know a way can, please PM me thanks.

Hi there
the issues is that the stat group that says how many files are rated as 4.5 stars goes up along with the group for number of files played for that stat rating ie:

File Ratings
***** 1234
**** 2002 (1345)
*** 12345
** 895
* 123

File Ratings Played
***** 2345
**** 2002
*** 9841
** 501
* 131

Note how in this example 4 asterisks for files played is the same as the number of songs rated 4 asterisks. The number in brackets is the actual number of files with that rating but every time a 4 asterisk file is played, both categories go up unlike the other ratings which do not.

Hope this helps!

Sorted Now!

I think it was a skin issue, played around with the default skin options in MonkeyRok and sorted it.

The original issue with stats is still there now. For some reason every time I play a 4.5 star song, it adds the play count to both Ratings and Ratings played, but only for 4.5. I have about 600 songs with that rating but its currently saying 1013 in both categories.

Also genre played stats are a mess too with some genres being played more then genre's listed above it eg Pop comes after classical, even though I've played about 500 more files. The ones above that though are in correct order.

Hi Duke

thanks for giving it a go. I've tried what you've done but still get the message as before.

As i deleted every file I found associated with MonkeyRok, is it possible I deleted something I shouldn't have?

Well,
I found the solution myself!
I uninstalled the MR and reinstalled it. This time I removed the check at "Install only for me. No administrative rights necessary" or something like this (I'm using the german version!). This did the trick. Everything is working like before.
