Since when...?
Thanks for calling me on that, Mizery_Made! ;) It must have been my wishful thinking :(

While MediaMonkey has been way ahead of the pack as far as I am concerned, iTunes starting with version 7.x (and Windows Media Player starting with version 11.x) has slowly but surely improved song tagging support. I am glad for this, because I now depend on iTunes to manage my music on my iMac. While I had been hoping iTunes/iPod would fully support the "Album Artist" field as well as the multi-value "Artist" field, at this point, iTunes is only supporting the "Album Artist" field when it is populated. And even then, iTunes/iPod do not fully support it with "Album Artist" views, etc. :(

Here's one that's been tough for me...
I have a node for "Unknown Album Art." I want to EXCLUDE from that node the songs that I don't know the album for. Obviously, if I don't know what album the song is on, I won't know it's album art, so I don't need them to show in that node.
Any suggestions? I tried a couple things but couldn't get it to work on my own...
Thank you!

If I don't know the album, I just leave the album field blank. I don't have any "placeholders" for unknown album art, either, if that helps. :)

Happened to just see this, and I am sure Nyn would have the answer, but I thought I would just reply while I was here. Assuming that your node already has an "easyCriteria=missingAlbumArt" entry, just add one more entry to that node:

Code: Select all

trackCriteria="(Album <> '')"

Ah thank you both! That worked perfectly. I am getting a grasp on this...slowly, and with lots of help (as you can see). :)
Thanks again!

SBondi:

Just a fyi that empty nodes are not hiding in 3.1...

Nyn has re-tested this with the latest MM3.1 build, and it is not a problem :)

Sorry forgot to repost :oops: , got distracted moving on to the next script.... If you all have not tried 3.1 yet you should, it has some nice new benefits.

Hiya, good script - I'm just testing it and comparing it to MagicNodes and I'm just wondering if what I want to do here is possible:

Basically, I'm setting up a tree structure for genres and subgenres in my library - I have a node called "electronic" - under it I have a node called "techno". This is working fine (which is more than what I could do with MagicNodes). I also have a node called "hardcore techno" (which works) - which only shows things with the genre tags "digital hardcore" or "happy hardcore" and then displays the results as genre then album artist then year |album then track.

I also want techno to show the same view for any genres with "techno" in their names - I can get this to work. The problem is getting them to work together - I can get the techno node to show all of the genres with "techno" in their name or I can get it to show the "hardcore techno" node but I can't get it to do both at the same time (only one at a time). Is this possible?

The code that shows the genres with "techno" in their name is:

Code: Select all

;------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Techno]
;------------------------------------------------------------------------
; |_ Artist Collaborations
; |  \_ ...
;------------------------------------------------------------------------
icon=Genre
expandAtStartup=0
level=Genre
level=AlbumArtist
level=Year_Album
trackCriteria="(Genre LIKE '%techno%')"
parent="Electronic"

;------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Hardcore Techno]
;------------------------------------------------------------------------
; |_ Artist Collaborations
; |  \_ ...
;------------------------------------------------------------------------
icon=Genre
sortLike=Genre
level=Genre
level=AlbumArtist
level=Year_Album
trackCriteria="(Genre LIKE 'gabber' OR Genre LIKE 'happy hardcore' OR Genre LIKE 'digital hardcore')"
expandAtStartup=0
parent="Techno"
And the code which shows the Hardcore Techno node is:

Code: Select all

;------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Techno]
;------------------------------------------------------------------------
; |_ Artist Collaborations
; |  \_ ...
;------------------------------------------------------------------------
icon=Genre
expandAtStartup=0
parent="Electronic"

;------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Hardcore Techno]
;------------------------------------------------------------------------
; |_ Artist Collaborations
; |  \_ ...
;------------------------------------------------------------------------
icon=Genre
sortLike=Genre
level=Genre
level=AlbumArtist
level=Year_Album
trackCriteria="(Genre LIKE 'gabber' OR Genre LIKE 'happy hardcore' OR Genre LIKE 'digital hardcore')"
expandAtStartup=0
parent="Techno"
Thanks very much.

Would it be possible to add a level to support Original Year tag id3:TXXX:ORIGYEAR ? Is Displayed as Original date in MM. Have added a value to many albums and would love to be able to display them in this order rather than the less meaningful Date tag which is more the year the album was released rather than when the songs came out originally. Thanks.

Don't know if it's been posted, since this script hasn't been the most active in the past... seven months. Though, an error appears every now and again for me. It always happens when the player is done playing one track and goes to play the next one.

Code: Select all

Error #424 - Microsoft VBScript runtime error
Object required: 'SDB.MainTree.CurrentNode'
File: "C:\...\MyCustomNodes.vbs", Line: 2471, Column: 4
That error will sit on your screen, and the next track won't play until you click OK.

EDIT: Maybe it hasn't been active since sbondi hasn't been around since December. Shame, this was among my favorite scripts. At least it's still working with 3.1, might have to jump back on the MagicNodes bandwagon at some point.

I do not get that error and I too am using this script along with the latest beta release.
