    LS, did you want the updated .ini files? I believe that the ones I have are not really modified but not 100%. I can post those. I think that these instructions you listed are pretty easy to follow but let me know if you want me to post the .ini files.
    glad its working, you dont have to bother with posting the files, no one has said they couldn't get it to work so ill assume its all good.

    Smile Awesome function!

    This new "feature" is wonderful!!! I've been waiting for this plugin forever. I'm going to take a 15 hour drive on the 23rd, and then back on the 2nd of Jan. This will help me finally better organize all my songs.

    I was wondering if you had considered integrating this more fully with the Winamp ratings database? I synchronize between an iPod, the CarPuter, and my computers at home. Organizing songs and keeping them all in order has been extremely difficult. My playlists are built from the ratings that I give to songs. I use Winamp's Media Library along with SmartViews to generate m3U playlists. I then import these into my iPod or the CarPuter. This has traditionally been a one way street. Giving your creation, it may be possible for the Carputer to help organize music by assisting the population of the Winamp Media Library database. I know that Winamp can export its entire Media Library database into XML, (allowing modification from a third party), then reimport it.

    Any chance of this happening?

    Thanks again,
    Enrique

    new version released

    if you have the current version workin there's no need to update. This simply adds the ability to tell the plugin the path to rr.ini in the event its not in the default location. Please note since this is a small update and i'm in a hurry i havent updated the readme. But if you wish to set the location of rr.ini simply open ratingsconfig.ini and type it in the RRINIPATH tag.

    Ratings Plugin Problems

    Ok, I am jumping on the wagon here a little late, but tried to add this to my skin tonight.

    It is not working for me right now, and below is the detailed steps that occur:

    When I click the button to set the rating, with this code:
    Code:
    "MENU;ratings.skin||RunQW;C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings\ratecheck.exe"
    The pop-up appears, and the buttons are inactive (No mouse over indicators ect) and the CPU goes to 100%. Running at that point, the the tray, is Ratecheck.exe

    If I Right click and close the ratecheck.exe script, then As I mouse over the indicators are working.

    When I click on a star Rating at that point the "Star Rating.exe" script appears in the tray, and again pegs the processor at 100%

    If I right click and close that script in the tray, then CPU goes to normal, and I try to click a star rating again, from here it is an endless look of clicking the rating, closing the script, clicking the rating, closing the script ect.

    If then after the star rating.exe is closed with the pop-up still visable, I click the "Ok" button, it again pegs the processor at 100% and, a few seconds later the rating pop-up disappears, Cpu pegs again, and "RateWriter.exe" is running in the tray. When I right click that script and close it, Rating's .exe immediately replaces it and still leaves the processor pegged at a 100%. Closing that script and everything returns to normal.

    For trouble shooting purposes, I do have the playlist path in my rr.ini, as well as putting it in the ratings.ini

    Here is the ratings .ini:

    Code:
    [Ratings]
    rrinipath=C:\Program Files\Road Runner\
    Playlistpath=C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Playlists\
    Rated=1
    The Path to the ratings folder is:
    Code:
    C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings
    Winamp is installed in it's default location:
    Code:
    C:\Program Files\Winamp\
    I am using the "MC2.0" skin with the archive for testing purposes.

    I'm running Win Media Center Edition 2005, P4 3.2 Ghz, with 2 gigs of ram, with Winamp 5.13 (Which I believe is what Liquid Smoke is running right now as well.)

    I have tried to make this as detailed as possible, but if there is anyother info you need, let me know!

    Except I don't get the 100% CPU use, and once the ratings is closed the rest seems to work.


    BTW in the .skin file change the button to

    "MENU;ratings.skin||RunQW;$rrpath$\Ratings\rateche ck.exe".


    using $rrpath$ allows for different install directories.

    trying the new version, the problems above seem to be related to not having rrpath in the ratingsconfig.ini

    if i remove the path i get 100%cpu
    if i add the path everything works as before (which was great)

    Ive used this plugin for a while and i love it, the only problem seems to be the hardcoding of various paths.

    Exec.exe will tell you the value of anything located in RR.ini
    there is also code in the RRSDK autoit examples that show how to pull data from RR from your script.

    @scriptdir used inside of autoit scripts will let you use relative paths inside your scripts, so if you want to save data to a file that is located in the same dir as your scripts or any sub dir.
    example: This script below is one of many that i have that does a simply file copy using no full paths to any of the files.

    Code:
    FileChangeDir(@ScriptDir)
    FileCopy("ALT\NO ART NO LOGO sv\*.skin", @WorkingDir, 1)
    first line sets the working path to whatever dir the script is being run from.
    You can use that line in all your ratings scripts and you can change

    IniWrite("C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings\ratingsconfig.ini","ratings","rated ","1")
    to
    IniWrite("ratingsconfig.ini","ratings","rated","1" )

    i believe the best thing to do is remove all fullpaths to any file referenced in the scripts.

    if you dont have the time right now and you dont mind me putting my dirty fingers in your pudding, i can do it and send it to you?

    i think johns problem is that he doesnt have rr.ini in the rrinifilepath. I set the default for that config to be the default location though so you shouldnt have to have it set. As far as all the hardcoded file paths, i've fixed that already i believe. I honestly havent had time to test it though. I took all the ratings related file paths out and just used the name of the file. I also just threw a copy of exec.exe in the ratings folder. I'll do some more testing of the new version tomorrow. In the meantime if you wanna change a few things go ahead

    Hehehe I can assure you that my RR.ini is in the same path as Road Runner, or I think I would be having a LOT more problems

    I just left the .ini alone, other than changing the path to my playlists. But going on that assumption, I removed the rrinipath line from the config, letting it use it's "default" and it now works perfectly.

    Have a look at the code where you are pulling the rrinipath variable from the .ini file, there may be a possible space or extra "/" or something that is not letting the set path, actually be the path it uses, even though it is correct in the .ini file.

    All that aside, this plugin is working FLAWLESSLY for me now. Great Job!

    Hehehe Don't be so glad yet....

    Now that it is working, I was adding a few 5 star songs. I accidentally added one to 5 start I didn't want in there. I started that song, and clicked the rate button, and changed it to 3 stars. Doing that wiped out all the songs I had in the 5 star playlist. I verified this by loading the playlist in my text editor, then adding a few more songs to the 5 star, and then re-rating one of them, and sure enough it wiped out all the songs again.

    Well I am back to work on the car. Building a custom box for the puter in the back. Just came in for a little bit to cool off in the A/C.

    I will play with the plugin a little bit more later.
