The download links from page 1 don't seem to be working for me.

I have the same problem and this solution causes my windows color scheme changing to "basic". Is there any other solution?

Brilliant! This is a wonderful extension of an already powerful music app. Thank you for all of your hard work. May I suggest publishing a link for donations?

I'd just like to emphasize this recent suggestion:

Option to group by album only. I've got some samplers and movie soundtracks with several album artists, so the same album art is shown many times, for every artist, better would be only once.
I've got an album called "Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time". It has (you guessed it) 500 tracks. This means that I've got hundreds of copies of this album art in my MonkeyFlow even though they all belong to a single album. It would be nice to list one instance of album art for each album.

Thanks again!

MonkeyFlow 1.1 [MM3] with Multiple Album Art

You should have only one Album Art per album if you are managing your album correctly. For example, with the Rolling Stones 500, you should either group all the tracks under on disc (1, 2, 3, 4, ...500), manage by disc numbers - Disc 1, Tracks 1 - 20, and finally you could have three/four digit track numbers whereas Disc 1 = 101, 102, 103, etc and Disc 50 = 5001, 5002, 5003, etc.

If you number your albums this way, you shouldn't have multiple Album Art within MonkeyFlow.

I've got that too. For albums with multiple artists like that though I keep the artists field as it should be but for Album Artist put it as Various. I do this with all compilation type albums. In this case only one instance of it would pop in MonkeyFlow but you'd still keep the artist information for each individual song.

Loving this script its excellent. I do have a bit of a niggling problem though, im using the eclipse skin and i am unable to see the whole of the scroll bar and 'full screen' and 'Go to now playing' buttons, i can just see the top of them so cant actually use the buttons/ scroll feature at the minute :( .

Anyone else had this experience? any solutions? (OS: Vista 32 Bit)

Thanks in advance!

Try to select the Disable desktop composition option in the program properties of MonkeyFlow.exe, which disables Aero Glass on Vista.

i noticed that clicking slightly above the "fullscreen" and "now playing" buttons on embedded mode, activates their function. i am also having the issue where they, and the play controls/ scrollbar, are cut off at the bottom of the frame. so on vista ultimate 32, with aero glass on, the functions do work, the graphics just don't line up with the clickable range. only those two buttons on the monkeyflow window actually work, scrolling and play controls don't seem to respond at all, though once you use the offset fullscreen button, everything looks and works perfectly in fullscreen mode. i can't actually tell the difference between it and coverflow in tunes.

danhackley wrote:Wow, popular script !! What do you think of the request list, flashk ? Summarised below:

1. The ability for Monkeyflow to display albums only from the selected tree node (or magicnode)
2. The option for Monkeyflow to display album covers in a jewel (standard) CD case (much improving the visual appeal)
3. The option for Monkeyflow to display the rear album covers also (preferably in a CD case also); this could be done by having a button to "flip" the CD over to see the back
4. The option to display albums by the same album artist in "stacks" with the ability to expand the stack if required (to save flicking through many albums by the same artist)
5. The option to manually select which album art Monkeyflow uses for the cover
6. The option to display album art of the "now playing" list
7. The option to get rid of the text below the album art
8. The ability to sort by more parameters than just artist and album (e.g. year/date)
9. A "now playing" list when Monkeyflow is in fullscreen mode
10. The ability to keep the entire current track list, as the users goes clicking on different covers. With this option ON, the list would be REPOSITIONED to display tracks of the clicked album. Currently, the active track list is SHORTENED to display ONLY tracks of the clicked album.
11. Option to hide items with missing album art
12. Speed control when scrolling through the covers. Dynamic speed would be nice: start more slowly and accelerate continuously.
13. Move page by page with mouse clicks, as it alyready works by pressing PgUp/PgDown. Normally this should be the reaction when clicking in the empty space of the scrollbar. Click and hold should scroll by pages (but not too fast).
14. Option to group by album only. I've got some samplers and movie soundtracks with several album artists, so the same album art is shown many times, for every artist, better would be only once.
15. Full Vista compatibility
:D
The next release should have some of these features. It has an option to display albums from the entire library, the current tracklist, or the now playing list. I've added the sort option of preserving the order of the tracklist/now playing list. So this should allow any sorting criteria that is supported by the tracks window.

When viewing albums from the tracklist or now playing list and selecting a cover in MonkeyFlow, it will highlight the corresponding track in the list, instead of repopulating the list with the album tracks.

I've also added the ability to change the viewing angle/zoom and the cover angles. You can use this to have the cover take up more of the available space and hide the text below the cover. Changing the cover angles will also allow the user to replicate the look of the Songbird MediaFlow addon.

Also, the new version will directly access the MM sqlite database file to gather album information, instead of going through the scripting interface. This makes the startup time insanely faster ( 1 second with a library of 4500 albums ).

I'm waiting for MM 3.1.2 before releasing the new version, since it should have some fixes that are needed for MonkeyFlow to work correctly.

... and what about the items 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15? :) :wink:

Seriously, great you've found some time to work on this script, flashk, I'm looking forward to the new version whatever improvements you may realize!

The priority of items may be rather subjective anyway, e.g. for me a jewel case is superfluous, IMHO it would only waste space. :evil: :wink:
