The original thread for "Monkey Rok" versions 1.0 to 4.1 is here... viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14494&start=0

New version (5.0) is now available to download from my website. Please uninstall version 4.1 before installing version 5.0. Changes include...

- Fixed artists with apostrophes causing errors
- Fixed Windows temporary directory sometimes ends with slash
- Fixed some strings failing to translate
- Added better skin matching in automatic skin mode
- Replaced "scriptaculous" with "jquery" for animations
- Fixed multi-value delimiter not taken from settings
- Fixed ignore prefix strings not taken from settings
- Fixed rating not always stored for correct track
- Fixed results from Last.Fm not fully decoded
- Fixed extra info fields not displaying correctly when blank
- Fixed played counts in statistics report
- Added options to hide track information and play controls
- Added volume control bar (with option to hide)
- Added track position control bar (with option to hide)
- Added refinements to "other albums" external panel results
- Fixed browsing to node doesn't work with hidden nodes
- Fixed "similar artists" not showing match as a percentage
- Added link to "biography" which shows the full page
- Fixed artwork mode affecting all albums not just current one
- Added <Playlists> field to extra info mask
- Added "playlists" option to the text panel
- Added option to include language parameter in Last.Fm queries
- Added two extra external panels (4 and 5)
- Added option to generate artwork for each track instead of album
- Added flags for new options (** for new option, * for amended option)
- Fixed artwork panel not working for images from Last.Fm
- Fixed full cache mode still generating image
- Added button to clear the cache immediately
- Fixed context menus to be skinnable (with 6 included themes)
- Added panel minimise/maximise and hide icons
- Added "artist images" as an external panel option
- Added "track video" as an external panel option
- Added "track covers" as an external panel option
- Fixed track lists in external panels not expanding/collapsing correctly
- Added tabbed version of the "classic" skin
- Fixed count of matching songs and albums in library not correct
- Added "none" option to artwork mode

Please note that skins (other than those included in the package) will not work until they have been updated for version 5.0.

To enable the Last.Fm loved tracks functionality you need to make sure that the XMD5.dll component is registered. The script should do this automatically, but you made need to do it manually...

Windows 32 bit:
Code: Select all
1. Open the CMD prompt
2. cd C:\windows\system32
3. regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\XMD5.dll"

Windows 64 bit:
Code: Select all
1. Open the CMD prompt
2. cd C:\windows\syswow64
3. regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts\XMD5.dll"

Oh by the way, here's my to do list for version 5.1...

- Add "love this track" to top section [track.love]
- Add "I am attending" to events external panel [event.attend]
- Improving caching of artist/track based external panels
- Add external panel which uses PUID to get more information
- Investigate a cameleon skin which uses skin colours

Got it. Thanks.
Minor glitch with "classic _tabs" skin.
I have "Similar Artists","Biography","Favourite","Played" & "Albums By" tabs. Everything seems fine except that clicking on the "Biography" tab re-arranges the tabs in a funky way. No big.

@Owyn - i'm using jquery tabs and they don't stack very well (if they have to go onto multiple lines). This might be fixable in the stylesheet, otherwise just make sure you've got enough width to avoid this. :)

@dypsis - "Please note that skins (other than those included in the package) will not work until they have been updated for version 5.0"

A note to skinners, please email any skins that you have updated and I will add them to my site. See here for tips.

@Trix. I will live with the funky. Cheaper than buying a new monitor so that I have enough pixels for Monkey Rok plus the rest of what I need to see. :D

Now my monkey is going to have to be mismatched because I am liking the tabs. :)

OK. Thanks trixmoto.

I tried the Classic Tabs skin, and "Albums By" or "Biography" doesn't work for me. It doesn't list anything.

Trix: I noticed that this tab dissapeared from an artist that I knew I had several albums by. I switched skins from classic_tabs->classic->classic_tabs and I suddenly had a lot more tabs present. Looks like jquerry is having more than just arrangement problems.

However, once I got the tab back, there was no problem with the data.

Noticed a problem with the Similar Artists panel. There is no right-click context menu for tracks in expanded artists.

Is there a way to get MonkeyRok to remember to keep the track list of the now playing album expanded?
When I re-open MediaMonkey or when the album changes, it always reverts back to the collapsed state.

Also. When I click on Album Art, it opens up very small.

Only the one next to the Now Playing track opens for me (despite the one listed for the album showing the cursor as if it were clickable), but when I click it, it opens up full size for me.

I'm so excited! I'm installing it right now.
I'll be even more excited when the various skins are updated to support the new version.
Thanks so much Trixmoto!

OK. I have further information about this.
If you right click on the Album Art, and select "All", which is what I normally have it set to, the bug will be there.
Try clicking on it now.

By the way, selecting Front or Back doesn't give me the Front cover or the Back cover unless I click on it. :o
I have my tracks tagged correctly.

And I am not sure what sort of Album Art is supposed to go in the Artist field.
