Hi Berny, I had used DiddLeeDoo's auto-rate script in MM 2, however that isn't updated yet, so I am thinking about trying yours out, however I think it does things fundamentally different.
Let me explain what kind of behaviour I'm looking for and then figure out if thats possible with your script or not.
First, I don't want anything auto calculated without me playing or skipping it, so I would disable the calibrate functions. I also am not interested in using a custom field so that would be disabled too.
What I am looking for is a basic # of plays within a configurable time period = the rating I set it for, and for skips to immediately lower the rating (half star for my preference).
Basically, how I had it setup in MM 2, was default rating was 2.5, first play = 3 star, any skip = -.5 star (no matter what the previous rating was).
From there, I used the settings
within 8 day time period:
1 play = 3 star
3 play = 3.5
4 play = 4
5 play = 4.5
7 play = 5
Basically, if I played a song almost every day, after just over a week it would be up to 5 stars.
I am not sure whether or not I can approximate the above or not with your script, since it seems based upon the formula instead of table like DiddeLeeDoo's script.
Now I can live with a good formula approximation of the above, but I prefer the immediate minus .5 star on any skip, and the + .5 star on first play (I manually default rate every 'cleaned up' track @ 2.5 star, and leave non-cleaned up tracks un-rated).
What's your thoughts on the above?
After further checking out the script, I realized it also considers the date added and the all time since last played. I am not really interested in the added date affecting the rating, and I am really only interested in the last 8 rolling days. I don't want tracks downrated over time, the only downrates I want are from skips or from my manually rating them down.
I realize that your script operates on a fundamentally different design, so it may not really be feasible to incorporate or approximate my desires and if so thats perfectly fine. But if you see a way that I can get the same or very similar results as I got with Diddeleedoo's script without requiring reworking your design, I would be interested in checking it out more.
