    Ok, just tried the skin you atached 2 posts back, and put the onsong start in the main ExecTbl.

    Now it created the playlist name "1 star.m3u" for instance, but all is is saving to that file is the root path to my MP3's "F:".

    ok i uploaded a new version with a debugger. To use debug mode, add the word "debug" (no quotes) right after the $CURTRACK$ on ratings.exe in the ratings.skin. this is how it should look

    Code:
    B,167,305,167,55,"Close||RunQW;C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings\ratewriter.exe||RUNQ;C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings\Ratings.exe|$CURTRACK$debug||setind;!1starindicator;OFF||setind;!2starindicator;OFF||setind;!3starindicator;OFF||setind;!4starindicator;OFF||setind;!5starindicator;OFF",
    With debug mode enabled you will receive a message box when ratings.exe is run. The box should contain the currently playing song without the drive letter. After you hit ok ratings.exe will continue to run and the song should still be written to the playlist.

    The reason u guys are seeing only a drive letter in ur .m3u is for some reason rr is not sending the currently playing track to the plugin. I changed some stuff in ratings.exe to attempt to fix this. Download the new version, add "debug" and hope for the best

    Hi,

    i added this in ExecTBL.ini int the root folder of RR:

    Code:
    "ONSONGSTART","SETVARBYCODE;curtrack;trackpath "
    i also added the line:

    Code:
    B,167,305,167,55,"Close||RunQW;C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings\ratewriter.exe||RUNQ;C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings\Ratings.exe|$CURTRACK$debug||setind;!1starindicator;OFF||setind;!2starindicator;OFF||setind;!3starindicator;OFF||setind;!4starindicator;OFF||setind;!5starindicator;OFF",
    in rating.skin, but i did'nt get message box.

    when i rated a song with 3 stars, it only added the word "debug" at the end of the playslist 3stars.m3u

    The good point is the script ins't deleting the other existing playlsits any more.

    hope this help

    First off my RR is installed on my E: drive and my music somewhere on the M: drive

    If I run with this, the plugin immediately hangs with no access via mouse or keyboard to RR and ratingscheck.exe is running at near 100%. I f I close this down then I get access back to rest of plugin.

    I have tried changing the path for rr.ini in the ini file but it makes no difference (have tried just rrpath, rrpath\ and rrpath\rr.in where rrpath equals the full path to rr).

    I then created a Road Runner folder on my c: drive and put rr.ini in there, now it doesn't hang, but I get no m3u files.

    I then created a ratings folder on c: and now I get m3u files, but they are not in the folder specified in the ini, they are just in the root of M: and all they contain is 'M:' no name of files.

    Am using the latest version in the first post.



    *edit, added the extra curtrack to the OK button, now it does save a filename in the m3U file. However the other issues still exist.

    OK, quoting myself because I stated belatedly that the lack of a filename had been solved by puttinf the curtrack variable in the close button, so this debug version was not necessary.

    However the pathnames are still an issue I believe.

    Also

    It does remove a song from a playlist to put in a new one, just adds the path to the new list. (ie doesn't delete from the old one)

    and finally, when you first use ratings after a fresh start or RR it doesn't put the file you select in the playlist you select, it uses the last one it used from before.

    ie last file before closing rr was added to 5 star playlist. Close RR

    Start RR, click ratings select 1 star, song is added to 5 star.

    The good news is all these issues are directly related to one another. I guess i should note that the only requirement is the ratings folder must be placed on the same drive as the road runner folder. With that in mind i'm going to release new skin files with a different method of handling all the commands needed to successfully run this.

    ok add the contents of add to exectbl to your main exectbl.ini and copy the .skin file for the skin ur using over to your skin file. The launch button should stay the same (make sure ur launch button has the path to YOUR ratings folder btw).

    This is the exact way i've been using the ratings plugin for 3 days now with 0 issues.

    OK I'm quoting myself again, because I was tired and made a typo which may have not conveyed all it should. See the important red not above.

    A few observations.

    1. You are now saving the files to the playlists before the person has OK'd the rating they have selected, therefore if they press cancel the change is still made.

    2. please try to use the variable $rrpath" instead of C:\program files\road runner\ in the skin files.

    3. Still have the issue with the first song rated not being put in the correct rating file, it still gets put in the last one used.


    And some good news, you've managed to solve the moving a song from one rating to another

    1. I'm aware of this, i'm gonna change the skins and remove the cancel button. Why would someone hit the rate button then not wanna rate the song at all right ?

    2. Will do, just bein lazy i guess lol

    3. This is odd and i have no idea why that would be. I mean the same code is being run regardless of if its the first or millionth song. Perhaps there's a delay in the script accessing whatever drive ur playlist folder is on the first time but not any other times... kinda the way windows takes awhile to load a folder on a usb drive the first time but not the next. Essentially all star rating does is write a number to rating.txt. Humor me and open your exectbl.ini. Change the command to run star rating.exe from RUNQ to RUNQW. Then change the wait time from 3 seconds to 7 seconds. Then see if it happens.

    No difference. It actually creates two m3u files, one it leaves empty the other it sticks the filename in, neither are the one I selected

    eg

    Selected a song, gave it one star, 4 star.m3u created empty and 5 star.m3u created with file in.

    select another song give it two star, 2 star.m3u created with correct song in

    select a third song give it one star 1 star.m3u created with correct song it, but only that one, not the one that I did first.

    I could now carry on infinitium and it will now correctly assign songs and even move them. It's just that first one.


    OH! and still that I need this dummy road runner directory, rr.ini and ratings folder with contents on my C: drive for it to work.
