Are you sure that it's not possible to alter the db and not the tags? There's a "DB Only Mask" checkbox in the plugins config page, which suggests it is possible -)

no, it's not. you are confusing two things:

afaik foobar's api makes it possible to prevent tag changes from being written to files at the moment of change (db_only flag in appropriate routines). this info has no effect later on (i.e. it's not being remembered), so these changes could get written to files sooner or later.

'Block tag update operations' option would prevent any writing to files ...

Now with rather limited support for either sqlite.dll (only my included version) or libmysql.dll, and thanks to my messy coding, no longer depends on pmysql, but still uses PTypes for some very minor crap because I am lazy.

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but I've added all my file types to the "DB Only" config option and it works. All the play count tags are stored in the database and my files remain untouched. I don't have "block tag operations" enabled.

I think that when you will update/change your tag files i.e. Artist or whatever, the playcount tags will get tagged into the file. You could try to check it just by open properties of a file that has the playcount tags (that are not written intot he file because you have the 'DB only' option), change a tag (artist or whatever) and hit update file. See if the file has been tagged with playcounter tags

Here is the format I used, I added the time stamp to the code that tboehrer provided.



Code: [Select]
$if(%play_date%,' '$substr(%play_date%,3,4)
|$left(%play_date%,2)|$right(%play_date%,2)' @ '
$left(%play_time%,2):$substr(%play_time%,3,4),
'                 ')

Code: [Select]
The output looks like this at the end of my playlist:
04|13|04 @ 19:33

[a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=202907"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]


for anyone in australia or england or anywhere else that uses the other way of date formatting i have this currently working in my track info panel

Code: [Select]
This song was played %play_counter% times so far. 
$char(10)
Last played:
$if(%play_date%,' '$left(%play_date%,2)|$substr(%play_date%,3,4)|$right(%play_date%,2)' @ '
$left(%play_time%,2):$substr(%play_time%,3,4),
'                 ')


this swaps the months and the days around to my preferred way

Here is the code I use.

Code: [Select]
$if(%play_counter%,$get(bleu)Ce morceau a été joué %play_counter%$get(bleu) fois.
$char(10)$get(bleu)Dernière lecture



$puts(total,$add($right(%play_date%,2),$select($substr(%play_date%,3,4),    $if($strcmp($left(%play_date%,2),04),0,1),$if($strcmp($left(%play_date%,2),04),3,4),4,0,2,5,0,3,6,1,4,6),6,$left(%play_date%,2)))
$select($add(1,$mod($add($get(total),$div($left(%play_date%,2),4)),7)),Samedi,Dimanche,Lundi,Mardi,Mercredi,Jeudi,Vendredi)


$num($right(%play_date%,2),1)$if($strcmp($right(%play_date%,2),01),er) $select($substr(%play_date%,3,4),Janvier,Février,Mars,Avril,Mai,Juin,Juillet,Août,Septembre,Octobre,Novembre,Décembre) 20$left(%play_date%,2)$char(10)
                       $get(bleu)à $left(%play_time%,2):$right($left(%play_time%,4),2)
,$get(bleu)Ce morceau n''a jamais été joué)

The date is sored this way : %y%M%D
And the time : $H$M$S

The advantage of storing this way is that I can easily sort according to the date (and hour) when tracks were played

And the date is displayed this way :
Dernière lecture Vendredi 4 Février 2005 à 16:40

It's in French but translation shouldn't be a problem :
Janvier : January, etc...
Samedi : Saturday etc...
Dernière lecture : last time played
Ce morceau n''a jamais été joué : never played

,$get(bleu)Thisis your first time listening to this song.)


here is the translated,

can you tell me what bleu is for?

also i would like to have if the song has only been played once, then instead of it saying this song has been played 1 times it says 1 time. ie singular instead of plural.


also for the daye i would like to have it be on the actual day be 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc instead of 1,2,3,4

hope you can understand that?

thanks

I use this in my track info panel

You can easily create a colum with this info, though you dont need one to sort by last played : just select all your playlist (or double clic on status bar) and then sort>sort by> %play_date%, or even better : %play_date% %play_time%

The advantage of having a dedicated column is that this can be done in just one clic

This should work
"bleu" is just a color, I have "$puts(bleu,918377)" at the begining of the panel, but you can put whatever color you want (bleu means blue in French)

Ooops, this will put you 31th ... Well, let's be "bestial"

I copied this into my columns, it looks good, however, the year is displayed as 2011, 2018, or sometime in the future.     
I should be grateful if you could correct the year for me.

Because he might be using %y%M%D for PLAY_DATE, eg today is 050208.
Edit: As for AM/PM, it seems to me that at least one or two peeps have already posted their method in the track info pannel topic or somewhere near

The default is %D%M%y.

I use %Y%M%D$H$M$S.  This gives a combined date + time and allows sorting by last played.

tboehrer:

please give this thread a read and drop in your opinion:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=31530

From looking at the sources, it seems quite easy to change the default to the proposed standard in the above thread. But i guess it would be a better idea (if you want to) when you would officially change the default instead of someone else changing the source and compiling it.
