There's no solution to do this easier in MM3?

Have you tried to modify your Set1Weight and Set2Weight in the "Global Variables and Declarations" section of the code? You will probably have to play around with them a little bit to get a result that makes sense for your music collection.

You could try the following:
Const Set1Weight = 5
Const Set1Boundary = 5
Const Set1Percentage = 100
...
Const Set2Percentage = 0
That should give you all songs in your collection. If that works, you can start from there. Good luck and let me know how it goes.
hi! i am currently also having the problem with the setxweight constants.
I debugged it a bit and found out that minweight is 7 for me and maxweight is 9.5. But in the Node for Weighting the min value appears to be -7.1. I don't know what to change...
I'm also using non standard ratings as a result of autorateaccurate script. I also have a node that says the weight is 0.800000001 of a song. Should i use a round() somewhere in the script? Or might the problem be the cdbl(weigth) in line 219-224? I also cecked the Genres clearing all restrictions.

Thx for any help.

This post was from me... Somewhy i was not logged in :/

Another thing i wanted to know: is there a way of listening to non-rated songs?

New Version 1.7

Version 1.7 by RedX

- Improvements to the algorithm
1. I have replaced all looping with SQL access statements improving overall query time and
and IMHO readabilty of the code
2. Added option to improve weights of songs with low played count especially one that have not yet
been heard at all but are old in the db, old means longer then boostnewsongsdays
3. Added check for SetXPercentage and numberofsongs
My modifications are restricted to FillGoodLeaf and adding a new Formula in the general section

Code: Select all

' RadioFreeMonkey
' Version 1.7
' A script to create a "radio station" for you based on your song ratings.

' #####################
' Version 1.2 by Risser

' This script creates a root node in the tree, beneath the library node, called "RadioFreeMonkey".
' Under this node, you have a Radio List node, a Done node and a Weightings node.
' - The Radio List node lists 20 songs, in random order. These are weighted, so songs
' with a higher weighting have a higher chance of getting selected.
' - If you have selected a sorting column, even though the songs are selected randomly, the
' radio list will be sorted based on that column. To return the list to "random" sorting, click
' on any playlist (Now Playing works nicely). When you visit the Radio List node, the songs will
' be unsorted, in true random order.
' - The Done list shows you which songs aren't going to be played. This includes songs that have
' passed their maximum playcount, or anything within MinDaysRepeat.
' - The Weighting node shows all tunes, sorted by their calculated weights. This can help you
' determine what the optimal weighting choices are for you. Plus, it's just nice to see what's
' more likely to be played.

' Songs are weighted as follows:
' Rating * 2 (5 stars = 10, 3.5 stars = 7, 0 stars = 0)
' - Number of Plays (if Reduce if Played is TRUE)
' + Days since added to library / DayFactor (always rounded down)
' However, the weighting can't be more than the original rating (* 2).

' TO DO: At some point, I'd like to make the main 'list' node a PlayList instead of a regular
' list of tracks, but I'm not sure how to do this.
'
' This script can be freely used and modified.
' This is an early release and there may be bugs. If it's causing you problems, simply delete
' it or move it out of the scripts\auto folder.
'
' The script does not modify the database, registry or INI file.

' #####################
' Version 1.5 by popper

' - added possibility to boost songs that have been added to the DB recently
' - added possibility to define the genres that should be played
' - redesign of the mechanism that selects the actual songs to be played (because I did not
'   really understand what was going on in the existing algorithm ;-), with the goal of making
'   it easier to influence what will be played (e.g. 30% of songs with a weighting of 8-10 and
'   70% with a weighting of 5-7))
' #####################
' Version 1.6 by ElGringo

' - Fixes to the algorithm
'   - 1. There was always a song that had nothing to do in my playlists, investigated
'        and saw the error in FillGoodLeaf
'   - 2. There is an error in the calculation of the dateboost formula, the
'        dateboostcutoff*20 should be dateboostcutoff*10. There were a couple of places wrong
'   - 3. By adding, the BoostNewSongsModifier, the actual weight calculated, could go higher
'        than 10, but the algorithm was never picking songs with a weight higher than 10. So,
'        i fixed a couple of places in the script, so that calculated weight higher than 10,
'        are now fixed at 10.
'   - 4.There was a bug, when the BoostNewSongsModifier is set to 0... fixed it.
'
'
'
' #####################
' Version 1.6.1 by popper

' - In my opinion, the dateboostcutoff*20 (point 2. from ElGringo's list above) was correct
'   ("Please correct me if I am wrong, but the ratings are stored in the database using
'    numbers from 0 (or -1) to 100. So to calculate the number of stars from a rating in
'    the database, you have to divide by 20, and not by ten.")
'   So I changed it back in this release.
'   No other modifications made. ElGringo was right in all other points ;-)

Useless to say but......Great Job Guys!

Couple of question:

1) i assigned: "Const DateBoostCutoff = 6" but i still get songs rated 2 or even 1 in playlist; is it correct ?

2) i'd like to select the Radio List as alternate playlist at startUp (tweak monkey) but no-chance - any alternative or suggestion to select Radio List as playlist at startup ?

Thanks in advance

Ciao

post my complete settings hereunder for question 1:
------------------
Option Explicit

Const RootNodeCaption = "Radio FreeMonkey 1.7"

Const DayFactor = 20

Const DateBoostCutoff = 6

Const MinDaysRepeat = 10

Const ReduceIfPlayed = True

Const BoostNewSongsDays = 30

Const BoostNewSongsModifier = 3

Const BoostNewSongsCutoff = 6

Const BoostNotPlayedModifier=5

Const BoostNotPlayedCutoff=0

Const BoostNotPlayedNotRated=True

Const BoostNotPlayedRatingCutoff=6

Ive got this somewhat working. However it puts my 2 star tracks as the top tier selections and does not select anything 3 and above. How would i tweak this so it goes by my proper star ratings 1 - 5?

thanks!

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but in this node, what is the difference between the "done" and "radio list" nodes? Also, what script or what is it using to add or pick the ratings from? Are these ratign affected by any of the add-on scripts for MM that add ratings to songs? Thanks much.

Is there any way to get the radiofreemonkey node to make unrated have the highest chance of being picked?

Hi, I get the same error on two different computers with 1.7 (only one I've tried so far) -

#1024 - Microsoft VBScript compilation error
Expected statement
Option Explicit
File: "C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto\radio freemonkey.vbs", Line: 97, Column: 0

Is this something easy to fix?

I've seen the script (don't quite understand all the code) but I'm sure it works well for your intended purposes.

Has anyone thought about creating a "Simpler Scheduler" that allows users to schedule play-lists by PC clock time?

All I want is a continuous 7 day calendar (looking like an excel spreadsheet) that allows me to schedule each day the play-lists or specific XXXXX.MP3/.WAV files to be play at a specific PC clock time.

When activating a called up play-list the program/script would do a one time randomizing of the play-list and then begin playing the songs - wrap around to the start for continuous play of this list until the next calender item is called.

I don't care about weighting. I create the play-lists so in affect I control the weighting and since it is a sequenced play-list all songs I want would get played.

I really wish MM would include this as an alternate function to Party mode. With you guys creating the code - I don't understand the hesitation in adding it into MM.

Hi still not really getting this working right - seems to only play rated tracks? Most of my library is newly imported and unrated, how can I make it play more unrated tracks?

Thanks! :D

Radio Free Monkey in MM 3.0?

Post by soundbyte »

Should the same script work in Monkey 3.0 beta? I've tried moving the script and am getting error messages ("Problem querying database," ERROR #-2147418113.

I can provide more details if that would help.

I do some bug fix.

Mainly, the BoostNewSongs now work with unrated songs. Songs with a weight higher than 10 were never picked, theirs weight are now fixed to 10.

I fixed also the option to disable some genres.

Code: Select all

' RadioFreeMonkey
' Version 1.7.1
' A script to create a "radio station" for you based on your song ratings.

' #####################
' Version 1.2 by Risser

' This script creates a root node in the tree, beneath the library node, called "RadioFreeMonkey".
' Under this node, you have a Radio List node, a Done node and a Weightings node.
' - The Radio List node lists 20 songs, in random order. These are weighted, so songs
' with a higher weighting have a higher chance of getting selected.
' - If you have selected a sorting column, even though the songs are selected randomly, the
' radio list will be sorted based on that column. To return the list to "random" sorting, click
' on any playlist (Now Playing works nicely). When you visit the Radio List node, the songs will
' be unsorted, in true random order.
' - The Done list shows you which songs aren't going to be played. This includes songs that have
' passed their maximum playcount, or anything within MinDaysRepeat.
' - The Weighting node shows all tunes, sorted by their calculated weights. This can help you
' determine what the optimal weighting choices are for you. Plus, it's just nice to see what's
' more likely to be played.

' Songs are weighted as follows:
' Rating * 2 (5 stars = 10, 3.5 stars = 7, 0 stars = 0)
' - Number of Plays (if Reduce if Played is TRUE)
' + Days since added to library / DayFactor (always rounded down)
' However, the weighting can't be more than the original rating (* 2).

' TO DO: At some point, I'd like to make the main 'list' node a PlayList instead of a regular
' list of tracks, but I'm not sure how to do this.
'
' This script can be freely used and modified.
' This is an early release and there may be bugs. If it's causing you problems, simply delete
' it or move it out of the scripts\auto folder.
'
' The script does not modify the database, registry or INI file.

' Version 1.5 by popper

' - added possibility to boost songs that have been added to the DB recently
' - added possibility to define the genres that should be played
' - redesign of the mechanism that selects the actual songs to be played (because I did not
'   really understand what was going on in the existing algorithm ;-), with the goal of making
'   it easier to influence what will be played (e.g. 30% of songs with a weighting of 8-10 and
'   70% with a weighting of 5-7))
' #####################
' Version 1.6 by ElGringo

' - Fixes to the algorithm
'   - 1. There was always a song that had nothing to do in my playlists, investigated
'        and saw the error in FillGoodLeaf
'   - 2. There is an error in the calculation of the dateboost formula, the
'        dateboostcutoff*20 should be dateboostcutoff*10. There were a couple of places wrong
'   - 3. By adding, the BoostNewSongsModifier, the actual weight calculated, could go higher
'        than 10, but the algorithm was never picking songs with a weight higher than 10. So,
'        i fixed a couple of places in the script, so that calculated weight higher than 10,
'        are now fixed at 10.
'   - 4.There was a bug, when the BoostNewSongsModifier is set to 0... fixed it.
'
'
'
' #####################
' Version 1.6.1 by popper

' - In my opinion, the dateboostcutoff*20 (point 2. from ElGringo's list above) was correct
'   ("Please correct me if I am wrong, but the ratings are stored in the database using
'    numbers from 0 (or -1) to 100. So to calculate the number of stars from a rating in
'    the database, you have to divide by 20, and not by ten.")
'   So I changed it back in this release.
'   No other modifications made. ElGringo was right in all other points ;-)
'
'
' #####################
' Version 1.7 by RedX
'
' - Improvements to the algorithm
'  1. I have replaced all looping with SQL access statements improving overall query time and
'     and IMHO readabilty of the code
'  2. Added option to improve weights of songs with low played count especially one  that have not yet
'      been heard at all but are old in the db, old means longer then boostnewsongsdays
'  3. Added check for SetXPercentage and numberofsongs
'  My modifications are restricted to FillGoodLeaf and adding a new Formula in the general section
'
'
' #####################
' Version 1.7.1 by D!m
'
' - Fix some bugs
'  1. BoostNewSongs now work with unrated songs.
'  2. Song with a weight higher than 10 are now fixed at 10.
'  3. Option genres that should not be played now work.
'

' Changing some of the values might lead to endless loops that can only be solved by
