MM Helper 1.2.0 (Up again)

Post by Christoph »

Hey,
some time has passed since my helpers went offline due to my new website. Sorry for this.

But now I put the stuff online again and also included the sources.

You can get some information and download it here:
http://www.troelfdesign.com/en/downloads/monkey-tools/

The four packaged tools are:
Play Date Manager, Advanced Rating, M3U2SPL converter and a new one: Rockbox Stats Importer.

Regards
Christoph

I am unsure how to run this script. I extracted all the files and when I run the MM-Play Date .exe it brings up MM. That works fine, but how do I add songs to the list?

Also, when I have MM already running, I can't run the .exe files.

Hey,
the normal way to use these apps is:
1. Extract all files
2. Run MediaMonkey
3. Start TD-MM-Helper and Install the Icon (if you want)
4. Run your desired helper (Play Date Manager or Advanced Rating)

The Play Date Manager should update the list of selected songs itself.
So you only have to select some songs in the MM library (not in the playlist window).
The Manager should show them within a second. Then you can add, edit or remove plays.

Advanced Rating doesn't depend on selected songs. You only have to choose whether to find your favourite albums or artists.

I hope. I could help you.

Regards,
Christoph

OK, thanks, now I got it working.

I think it would be helpful to have a guide for the buttons on the Play Date Manager. I'm still a little confused on what each does. Basically what I'm trying to do is retro some of my older songs that i used to listen to a lot but don't much anymore. So I'd like to change the starting listened date from say 2008 to 2004.

This script is pretty cool so far though, thanks!

Hey,
nice to hear. Thanks.
You can delete a timespan by entering the start and end time in the appropriate fields and pressing "Delete Time Range".
Then you could create new plays by hand or with the "Add continous plays" function which simulates everyday listening.

I will prepare a more detailed guide for the tool.

Did you tried installing the icon and starting the apps via the helper tool? I'm interested whether there are problems with it.

I added the icon in no problem. You just need to install it then restart MM.

I look forward to the guide and meanwhile I'll play around with the script. Thanks!

I do seem to be having an error now when pressing the Helper icon.

Not sure what that means, but it just fails now.

Ok,
have you moved the tools after installing the icon?
That could be the reason for this.
Then uninstall the icon and install it again.
I will implement a file check.

Nope, haven't moved anything since the install. I verfied that the following 2 files are in the Scripts/Auto folder:

TD-MM-Helper Icon
TD-MM-Helper VBS

I tried deleting them and then reinstalling, but still have the same problem.

EDIT:

In the above VBS file, line 22 states:
wsh.Run("F:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\MM Helper\TD-MM-Helper.exe")

That file DOES exist in that folder.

Hey,
ok, it's the space in your path that's causing this problem.
Here is the solution:
wsh.Run(Chr(34)&"F:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\MM Helper\TD-MM-Helper.exe"&Chr(34))

Christoph

Edit:
I updated the download package on my webserver. The error has been fixed.

Fine. :)
In case you have some time:
Could you try out "Advanced Rating" and tell me whether my app displays really your favourites? (which should have been played and been rated to be recognized).

Christoph-

Works fine. I deleted 1.0.0 and installed the new version. No problems now. I also tried the Advanced Rating button and got this back:

That looks correct to me. Great work and thanks for a cool app!
