I was thinking, to make this accurate, is it possible to modify the plays on the ipod. Setting them all to zero, and then when the iPod is next check (when the script is setting everything to zero again) the tallied plays are added to the current plays in the computer library? This all hangs round the fact you can edit the iPod (or portable player) plays easily...
sry, I don't have an iPod. Maybe some owner can post whether there is a possibility to set these options.
Because I'm listening to whole albums I can add these fake playbacks easy when working on the computer.
I looked at the code and checked that it requires table in db. so i created table.
The new error that im getting is:
Error #438 - Microsoft V8Script runbme error
Object doesn’t support this property or method: 'sDB.Database.BeginTransacbon’
File: C: program Fileswv1ediaMonkeyycripts’fakePlays.vbs, Line: 70, Column: 3
Any idea? is it something wrong with Database drivers?
it seems that you're using MM 2.x. And it seems that the script doesn't work without some modifications. But I don't have MM 2.x to test. And I don't know whether fixing this SQL issues would be enough.
MM helper is up again:MonkeyTools Includes: Play Date Manager, Advanced Rating, M3U2SPL, Rockbox Stats Importer
This is a great idea. Could you tell me if the code on the first page is the best working one? I noticed there have been a few modifiactions since. Even better, how about an .mmip file? Just me being cheeky, but thanks for a great script
Hi Christoph, I've been trying to use this script (I also tried your MM helper App, but prefer the simpleness of this) but nothing seems to be happening. the Fake plays log file says it its doing something to the tracks, normally: "Insert 1 fake plays: D:\My Music\Haste The Day\When Everything Falls\08 This Time It's Real.mp3(8507)" but theres no new timestamp added at all. Any ideas? I have been using your most recent script you posted (Ver 1.3.2 (16 Mar 2008)).
