That a nice idea....just like the cough iTunes ratings
-Fixed Genre Based Supplemental playlist saves to be based on ID3 data
-added voice confirmation of rating check (default on, but can be turned off)
-tidied up the "burn" mode
-Added Genre based supplemental playlist saves(see read_me.txt)
more bug fixes
fixed indicator refreshing issue
more bug fixes
-fixes rr drive letter duplication
-fixes issues with LSX skin not showing previously rated stars.
MAJOR changes including:
-completely re-wrote the code to make use of rr's COM/ACTIVEX feature.
-took John's advice and used RR's ADDTOFILE command
-Removed ratewriter.exe and condensed star rating.exe into ratings.exe
-Removed the need for rr.ini's path
-Few other small bug fixes
Fixed the "debug" bug. Fixed a bug that allowed song to be rated on two playlists
fixed bug with star rating.exe that would delete playlists. Updated documentation.
adds the ability to set the path to rr.ini in the event its not in the default location.
fixes a few more bugs. Neccessary update for full functionality
Small change in code but no significant changes. Fixed the bug where rr would send different info to the plugin that would cause playlist save problems. Also added a full flash skin for freedom with some pretty neat effects. This skin also fixes the indicator issue, and it also has code that reads the color from menu.txt the same way CDRs does Screenshot below.
For those using there own skins, you MUST change ur SETIND and SETLABEL codes. Replace all "!" related to my plugin to "CUSTOM".
Another update. This time you can overwrite the ratings folder instead of having to delete it. You also have to overwrite your skin files as there have been some changes made to the skins.
NOTE: If you're using the LSX skin the new features wont work Until the skins are updated. Freedom and MC2.0 skins work.
Make sure to read the README as it shows a new way to load the ratings.skin.
-Ratings skin will now display if a song has already been rated and what that rating is
-Added the ability to change a songs rating. Song then gets removed from old rating playlist and added to new list
-Added the ability to read current playing track directly from RR. This means you DO NOT need the winamp plugin. However, for people who are using older versions of rr, plugin still works as a secondary method.
So there you go.. wanted to get this out before the holiday break. Let the bug reports begin
Any request for the next version? I'm thinkin of creating a label that will display song rating right on your audio_player skin(or whichever skin you prefer) instead of having to load the ratings skin to see ratings. By then i'll also have an installer ( thanks to blue_zx3)
New version. Please delete ratings folder and copy the new ratings folder to the same location. Skin files also need to be updated. Updated versions of LSX and mc2.0 enclosed.
Next update i hope will show ratings of all previously rated songs and also ensure that song will only be on one playlist... so that if you change a one star to a 3 star it gets deleted from the one star list!
-no more 1-5star.exe. One .exe takes care of all rating (thanks bluezx3)
-no longer requires the  brackets in rr.ini (thanks again bluezx3)
EDIT: Program updated. Download and overwrite existing files in the ratings folder if you already have it running.
-Now reads the winamp file path from rr.ini (thx Liquid Smoke)
-Now reads playlistpath from rr.ini if it exists, if not it sends the .m3u to your musicpath in rr.ini automatically
-2 skins included, MC2.0 skin and LSX skin (thx Liquid Smoke)
-Now will not add the rated song more than once to the same playlist. The program will not notify you that its ignoring your command, it will act as if its still adding it.
Thats all i think
EDIT: Program released. Any bugs lemme know (i'm sure there will be some)

For those who wanna make a custom skin you can. Just have to make sure all the indicators and stuff match name-wise.
I'm working on a program.. or series of scripts that will let you rate songs played in winamp thru rr on the fly, then access the playlist of assorted files when you want to.
For example, the song "so sick" is playing
1. I click the "rate me" button in my rr skin
2. The "ratings" skin pops up where i can click on a range of 1-5 stars. I click "5 star"
3. I click "ok" on the skin and behind the scenes a network of scripts save that song to the appropriate playlist, or add the song to the end of the playlist if the playlist already exists. Hence, "so sick" is added to "5 star.m3u"
Of course you can access the playlist with a button in rr or thru the audio browser...
So anyone interested in this? I have it working now for myself but if its wanted i need to change some variable for paths n what not.
sweet, i was asking for something exactly like this not too long ago.
I definately want to use this.
writing out the read-me today for instructions on setup
Ahh finally. I used to use a Rio Karma in my car before my carputer but I REALLY miss the Rio Karma's database features. Being able to generate playlists on the fly such as "Most played", "Most played six months ago (ie. Forgotten Gems)","Least played", "Sounds of the 80's",etc etc etc.
This is a good first step to getting something closer to that.
Id like to see some way to keep track of the number of times a song has been played then make a playlist based on that mostly (Most Played Songs).
i can do this. Now, it wont be soon cause i have a few other projects goin on, but basically using the same structure in my ratings plugin i can make a list of played songs. I scrub that list and can basically do whatever i want with the strings. its not really related to this thread, but if you seriously want that post a new thread with the types of playlists u want created and i'll whip something up.
My next "plugin" will be New Tracks. Searches your music folder for songs you've added in the last 2 weeks, automatically adds them to a playlist. Automatically deletes songs from the playlist that are more than 2 weeks old. God Bless autoit
trying this out now, so far everything seems to work except 2 issues im running into now.
1. it dosent save the playllist files to the dir i have set in RR.ini
2. the playlist files contain no data
im going to play with the options in the winamp plugin and see if that changes anything. The read me just said to configure the plugin but didnt say what options other than the obvious to enable.
