OK seem to have figured it out, however I see why I was confused.
I had changed this setting a few times without seeing any result, until I told it to update Custom1 with
Rank rather than Play count just to reset of sorts... Then ran the script again telling it to Re-Update Custom1
with the play count with zero pad set to 8.

The script may need to overwrite the field or have an option to overwrite existing data.

It should always overwrite unless the value is the same, but it applies the padding before checking so this should work. :-?

New version (1.3) is now available to download from my website. Changes include...

- Fixed multi-value separator not working correctly
- Fixed changing the padding value doesn't update values

You need to add zeroes in front of numbers so when you sort songs by the custom field (text) storing the value sorting will work properly. Now all nines will go together no matter if it's 9 or 91 or 9991 plays.

Looks pretty obvious since no one else has asked for it, but how do I enable or activate it and where are the options to customize the script.

Installed the script already
Scripts I use: Advanced Report

Does this script understand that a song tagged with artist 'Beatles' needs to get last.fm's data from 'The Beatles'?

It fixes "Beatles, The" to "The Beatles", but it doesn't guess that it might need to have "The" at the front, no.

This is a very very nice script, but unfortunately only parses the 50 best tracks. (probably because more tracks were not allowed by Last.fm at the time)
Last.fm has no limit for the number of tracks anymore, so I suggest you change the search parameter and add &limit=>>whatever your limit will be<<

To do it yourself:
Change line 186 from the script:

Code: Select all

  Dim url : url = "http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0/?method=artist.getTopTracks&api_key=6cfe51c9bf7e77d6449e63ac0db2ac24&artist="
TO:

Code: Select all

  Dim url : url = "http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0/?method=artist.getTopTracks&limit=9999&api_key=6cfe51c9bf7e77d6449e63ac0db2ac24&artist="
With this change I can get the playcount for all my tracks instead of only the 50 best ones :D

OK. So I'm running this script. But I am now wondering if it can do what I would like to do with the results? Which is create a playlist of the top 15- 20 ranked songs by each artist which would then act as an input the to Radio DJ script I use. So would I need to create a Magic Node somehow? If so, anyone have any ideas on how the sql would go? I am not a SQL programmer at all.

Thanks,
Jeff

Negative questions are a little confusing and I'm not really sure how to answer it directly. It worked for me yesterday though.
