Re: Find Missing The 3.2 [MM2+3]

I've been unable to find any list of "The" prefix/suffix artist names, that I can modify manually.

That is, I'd simply removed the "The " prefix from most of the artists in earlier collection cleanups - since this script only finds a handful of them now, where the ", The" suffix does exist, I would like to force some artist names to be checked.

I am hoping there's a text, INI, or VBS file I can modify to add artists.
IF NOT; I assume the best way would be to manually change at least one track's artist name for those I want to have fixed... so the next run of the script will find that one & change the rest... ?

Ok. I am new to MM
I could surely use this script.
How do I get it to search through my library and make the changes?
I highlighted one song to see if it would work
.and it is clearly another few songs with the same artist that is displaying without the THE

Hello Trixmoto,
How do I add to the list? All I have is the mmip file which I obviously can't edit.

I need it to pick up bands like:
The Surfaris
The Moonglows
The Gems

Thanks,
MPG

Nope, sorry. Still on my list though.

Did you ever have a chance to update the script to give the option to just update the Artist and Album Artist?

Great work by the way!

Yeah that's fixed it, thanks!

You've probably got a duplicate of Scripts.ini in your VirtualStore then.

Yes, sorry, that's what I meant :oops:

Assuming you're using MM3 you should be using the MMIP, not the EXE.

Maybe I'm doing something stupid but I've installed the .exe and I can't find any access to the script, it's not listed in tools>scripts?

It's a virgin MMIP. Will take a look at code later. Not a big issue as I check AMG for 'proper" coding before I change any of the the values. I can do it just as easily from TI.

Oh I see! :) Not really sure then, been a long while since I've looked at this script. The list of "the"s is hardcoded at the top of the script...

Code: Select all

Dim theList(3)		'this number must match the largest item number
theList(0) = "The"	'add more lines like this one for more words
theList(1) = "Der"	'the fewer words you have the faster it will process
theList(2) = "Die"
theList(3) = "Das"
I assume you haven't changed this at all?

:lol:
No brackets. I have both "The Afghan Whigs" and "Afghan Whigs" in the database.

This script was one of my very first, and not nearly as sophisticated as the TI script. It'll be the brackets which are stopping my script from finding them.

Just installed and tested this script. Got "You have no such artists in your visible library" message, however, when I cross checked with Tagging Inconsistencies->Persons->The Inconsistencies I found I had quite a few. e.g. (The) Afghan Whigs.
