You almost have it. In the dropdown list under Copy and Move there's an option to "Move entire parent directories, Preserve Structure and Filenames". Assuming you are using version 0.9+.
That's so plausible, I can't believe it.

Thanks for the script.  You're awesome.

Now.... can you help me script this?  I want to set the meta "ADDED" with the the date value in the form of YYYYMMDD.  For instance, today (May 5, 2006) would 20060505.  Thanks!

Edit: oops got the Keyboard Short cut to work


Also is there an official reason why Quicktag will not be ported? It was so useful for classifying when I got a new set of mp3s.

Because now when I use this keyboard shortcut with MassTagger an annoying dialog box appears for a 1/4 a second, and is off-putting.

This progress window is used by foobar2000 itself whenever tags are written to a file. If there was a port of foo_quicktag, it would show the same window.

Is there any way to disable or hide the progress window because it changes the focus on the item. Or is it possible to leave the progress update to the status bar?

parive3, up to now it's not possible to change the current behaviour. May be this will be changed in the upcoming 0.9.3 betas...?! Perhaps as an entry in the advanced section in the preferences.

Hi ...!!
... I have 1-2 problem(s) with this MT-Scripts here:

1.)
I'm quite a noob and
While the scripts are simple enough, I think it's simpler this way:

RatingDown - Replace 0 with whatever minimum rating you want
Code: [Select]
$max(0,$sub($if2(%RATING%,3),1))


RatingUp - Replace 6 with whatever maximum rating you want
Code: [Select]
$min(6,$add($if2(%RATING%,3),1))
yes, they are looking more comfortable ...
...but where to add them ?? (and how) 

2.)
(perhaps no need 4 it, when "1.)" helps out)
The MT-Scripts from the start of this topic are working and even doing well with the Keyboard-shortcuts,
but when I wanna create buttons to rate + and - , I can link them to those 2 MT-Scripts like the Keyboard-shortcuts and they look nice ...!! 
...until I press one of them !!
-Then FB crashes & turns off completely...  !!
----> Is this a known FB-Bug, or belongs to the .mts files from the 1st post, or is it just 'bad luck' ...??

Did you get a crash log? If so, please post it on the forum and put the text from the crash log inside a [codebox ] [/codebox ] pair in your post (you have to remove the space between the word codebox and the closing brackets).

Edit: And no, running masstagger scripts usually does not cause a crash.

It moreover should indeed work, since the scripts work, as you have seen, when you use them with shortcuts. I have never tried assigning them to buttons. I can't test it right now, since my PC is some kilometres away...

Well, the crash-thing with the buttons&Tag-Scripts is gone ... 
(... im wondering how and why...)

... but its still not workin !! -->Buttons like "Play", etc. are doing it well but other things like "Tagging / Edit Tags" or a link to a Tag-script let happen NOTHING !!

----> ...??
(perhaps THIS thing is it worth to open another topic...)


My major problem still is THIS post:

RatingDown - Replace 0 with whatever minimum rating you want
Code: [Select]
$max(0,$sub($if2(%RATING%,3),1))


RatingUp - Replace 6 with whatever maximum rating you want
Code: [Select]
$min(6,$add($if2(%RATING%,3),1))

----> Where and how can I add theese Codes ...??


.THNX.

These two code lines are doing exactly the same like the two files you can get in the first post. They only achieve the same effect by doing the calculation on a different way.
You can add these codes by going to the masstagger. Then create a new script and save it under i.e. "Swing-rating-test". Now you can assign a shortcut to this script. You start the masstagger by rightclicking in the playlist.

Yes, this info that can be read in div. posts I did already read (yes, I did  ), too ...!! Got it, (I think) ...
...But I cant find anywhere:
... Then create a new script and save it under ...

how I should create THIS script ...??

"actions to perform / Add" asks for an 'action type' like "Add value" or "Set Value", etc. ...
So, wich action is to perform there ...??

[0.9]Rating with Masstagger

Reply #39
Try it with "Set value", since you want to set the value for the tag "RATING".

[0.9]Rating with Masstagger

Reply #40
Nope, it was "Format Value ..." not "Set ..." . -Like in YOUR .mts ...!!
I would have discovered earlier, but no one said, tha I can double click the String from the loaded script, to see its whole lengh of it or to edit it ...!! (searching a button 4 it drove me mad ...)

... But now it works ...!!

I thought of this tonight - well, I'm glad you made it by now. It's already some time ago that I created the script. I had to try several options to get it working the way it should...

how do i make script that choose the first track from the album of the playing track and set the album_rating  . I don't know how do you guys set the album_rating (perhaps all tracks ?) but I prefer to read this info from the first track to display.

I don't use an album_rating myself. Moreover I don't know of any way to set the first track of an album. How should columns_ui know?!

so there is still no way i can do: Win + F12 to rate a track 5 stars?

just simple $meta_test(album rating) , currently I use that function to test the first track of the album . Since I don't want to write tags to every file in the album, can someone help me for a script to always write album rating to the first track of the album . With that script and a key shortcut I could simple press and set the album rating doesn't matter which track of that album is playing

thanks

Of course there is! Just create a new script, that sets rating to 5! After that you can assign a shortcut (win + f12) to this script.
If you don't succeed, I could make you the script. Just triy it yourself - it isn't that hard.
