DarkHelmet Wrote:Okay, something weird was happening here. I deinstalled both scripts (normal and party mode), because I thought I could install them both fresh from the repository. However only the party mode script is available on the repo. So I installed that and installed the normal version from your google code page. Now I get "no similar tracks were found" for every song in party mode. I now have party mode version 1.05 installed and normal version 1.01.
The normal script should not be needed for the partymode script to work. They are separate standalone addons. There might have been an issue before, when the partymode version used the settings from the normal version, but this should be fixed now.
If someone´s still using the normal version (playlist), I´m sure it can be added to the repo as well. But I probably won´t do any more work on it.

I'm using 1.05 of the party mode script on xbmc 10.1 on Vista Home. For me the missing fanart bug in the playlist has returned. Also in the playlist the names of the songs are usually displayed like this "track number. artist - track name", which is great. Now and then this changes to just the track name and then back again. Maybe when a new song gets added to the list?

Hmm. I didn't change the fanart part. It's working at this end. Whenever there exists fanart for the artist that is. Are you using a pre-eden nightly build by any chance?
The flickering you mention is caused by the script having to refresh itself after adding new songs, as you said. I haven't found any other way of updating the listing than refreshing the whole window/container. I'll keep it in mind.

In 1.0.7 I've changed he way playlistitems appear. Instead of just adding a track by its path, I now add metadata to the listitem.
At the moment I've added TrackTitle, Artist and Album along with fanart and a thumbnail.
I'm not sure if this solves the refresh "problem", but it should make the result look more consistent. (hopefully no more pathnames to the mp3 file)
If there's something I've missed, let me know. I will soon be adding tracks duration as I just saw this myself.

1.07 is working beautifully - really like all the settings available now.
One observation: the script seems a lot more "fussy" when sending song info to last.fm than it is in receiving it and matching songs.
I'll try to explain what I mean.
Many times I try to start the script on a particular song, only to find "no matching songs were found". However these are often reasonably popular songs that then would play later as a matched result for a now playing song.
It seems as though any song suggestions generated by last.fm find matches easily in the XBMC library, but song info sent from XBMC will not always find a match at the last.fm end...
Have you noticed this too?
(All my files are named / tagged fairly meticulously)

I haven't noticed this myself, but I suspect it can occur if the trackname or artist contains special characters. Do you have an example?

Does this work with mysql libraries? I ask because when I run the addon and then play a song it plays for a couple seconds and then XBMC reboots. It's right about the time that it should some songs to the playlist. I was wondering if the fact that I use mysql could be the problem.

Today I tried this addon on my Windows box and it didn't reboot the system, but it can't find a match for any artist I try. I've tried Diana Ross, Journey, AC/DC, Adele, Saliva. Any ideas?
