New release with powerful custom captions

Post by sbondi » Fri Jan 25, 2008 5:37 pm

Just uploaded a new release with powerful custom captions, so now the caption can hold custom counts and values with custom text. I have added "easyCaption" with an initial set, but there are no limits - display average song length per node, disk space used per node, total minutes per node, average bitrate per node, etc. I will add more easyCaptions after I get some feedback on what is useful.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This release requires the following changes to any existing .INI files:

1. "level": remove ":DESC" and add new next line as "levelSortOrder=descending"
2. "trackCriteria": rename all vbscript markers from "#VB#" to "[vb]" (case sensitive)
3. "displayTrackCount", "displayNodeCount", and "ignoreTopLevelCounts": replace with:
-- "customCaption=..." -or-
-- "easyCaption=WithTrackCount" -or-
-- "easyCaption=WithNodeAndTrackCounts" -or-
-- "levelEasyCaption=WithTrackCount" under the highest level to ignore top node counts

If you send me a Private Message with your .INI, I will quickly convert it for you.

Even more power!

Post by sbondi » Sat Jan 26, 2008 11:24 pm

With the new design of the script and power of SQLite, it is still pretty easy to quickly add lots of power while carefully avoiding performance degradation!

Two powerful things added:

1. You can now append "customCaptions" and "easyCaptions" (like "trackCriteria" and "easyCriteria") to create many combinations of "easyCaptions" to suit your needs; for example:

easyCaption=WithTrackCount
easyCaption=AndAverageSongLength
easyCaption=AndTotalDiskSpaceUsed

2. You can now insert a new sort criteria for a level, instead of just the level value (descending or ascending): levelCustomSort and levelEasySort (none defined yet).

-----

In addition,
-- added "Bitrate" level
-- fixed "Rating" level issue with empty nodes
-- added more "easyCaptions" (for "And..." appending)
-- added option to "refreshCurrentNode"

Also, see [IMPORTANT] regarding consistency changes that may affect any existing .INI files

Enjoy!

Patch for an exception in release

Post by sbondi » Sun Jan 27, 2008 12:51 am

Posted an update to the release for an exception that Nyn found with DateAdded and LastTimePlayed levels.

Performance research

Post by sbondi » Sun Jan 27, 2008 11:53 am

Nyn has noticed significantly slower performance when using the custom/easyCaption and/or the levelCustomSort in various situations. I will research these cases and see what can be done.

However, these features do have to be used carefully. As noted in the Readme, if you have lots of tracks and they go unfiltered into a level that will produce lots of nodes (hundred/thousands) and you have included counts on them (especially nodeCounts), then this will have unreasonable performance. In addition, the Artist/PrimaryArtist/GuestArtist fields come with a bit of overhead, so avoid producing lots of nodes for those levels.

Rule of thumb: try it first, and if it is slow (for me, more than 2 seconds), then reconsider nodeCounts and other customCaption features. Also, consider using the AlbumArtist field instead of the Artist field in these "slow" cases.

Major performance improvements for customCaptions ...

Post by sbondi » Sun Jan 27, 2008 2:36 pm

... I found lots of redundancy in the customCaption design that was just overkill designed to fully support session refreshes.

In the next day or so, I will release an update with significant performance improvements for customCaptions. Thanks for your patience.

sbondi

New performance release!

Post by sbondi » Wed Jan 30, 2008 12:18 am

Nyn tested it, and it's a whole lot faster! From 6 minutes for some customCaptions to a few seconds (most things under a second)!

Sorry for some more .INI generalizations/rewording, but there should not be any more of these after this release. As a consolation, Private Message me your .INI file and I will quickly convert it for you.

First version I downloaded this ran fine, but now, I get a ton of errors upon starting MM3. Things like:

unidentified node parameter - level 1
unidentified node parameter - level 2
unidentified node parameter - display node count
etc....

Am using the ini file you provided upon another users request so I am not sure if that is my issue or not. Copied and saved it as mycustomnodes.vbs and then put that vbs file and the ini file into the auto folder of MM3.

Anyone else have this issue? What could be causing this?

Thanks much.

It sounds like you are using an earlier ini file with a later vbs file. You may have some features in your ini that have been changed with the latest code. Your best bet is to PM Sboni your ini file, he'll quickly convert over you nodes to the new format. Or you can look through the Readme file on the first page, it outlines all the changes to the format.

Nyn, I believe cadmanmeg is using the version of your .INI file that you posted. It would be great if you could post your latest .INI file (with the last changes) for cadmanmeg and everyone else's benefit. Thanks :D

Minor update

Post by sbondi » Thu Jan 31, 2008 12:06 am

Just posted a minor update to fix the only outstanding bug reported: Playlist, Artist, PrimaryArtist, and GuestArtist levels were not using levelSortOrder.
