This setting is not in use in the Partmode version, and I should remove it. The current version is hardcoded to add 3 tracks. Thanks for letting me know.
Useful settings are on the roadmap though.

If you set this to say 20, then last.fm would return the top 20 similar tracks for the playing song and then you could pick randomly from this. This would mean that you would still get different results each play but from more similar tracks.
How about that. Nice!
My only concern about limiting the result from last.fm is that the changes to find a local match will be smaller.
Now, it's very probable that the sript will find 3 songs among the 250 last.fm tracks. But if I'd lower the result to 20, the chance to find 3 local song will not be so great. I'll do some experimenting, and at some point I'll most likely create som settings for it.

The addon is now hosted through Mortstar's repo. I updated the first post.

Cool that we can now update through a repo
I'm using this awesome script daily - thanks so much again.
Quick question - is there a mechanism in place to prevent a song playing more than onc during a partymode session?
It's weird - I never noticed this being a problem but today I heard several songs repeating during the same session (ie I stated party mode, selected a single track and then left the pc alone). Anything that can be done to stop this occurring?

At the moment, no. But I agree it should be.
Adding to the todo list.

I will have to try out your addon.
I wrote (one of) the last.fm addons for mediamonkey which does essentially the same thing, provide an endless playlist of similar songs, along with generating nodes based upon last.fm data and your library.

Hey! I remember this. I used Media monkey as my nr 1 media player before i got an Apple device (and reluctantly moved to their locked-up piece of software)
Your addon along with mediaportal´s lastfm implementation was the inspiration for creating something similar for xbmc.
I´ve had a look at your code, and see it has evolved a lot since I last used it. Great job!!
If you don´t mind, I´d like to implement some of the features you have into my addon. Especially some of the settings you have.

I have tried to run your script in nightly build but I get the following error:

I haven´t installed the latest nightly, so I´m not sure the latest version fixed this problem. But I made a change to how the addon finds the autoexec.py file. Try the latest version 1.0.5 and let me know if the problem is still there.

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.
I suggest you upload both scripts to the repo and make it clear that the party mode needs the normal script.
A restart solved the issue, yet still this could lead to frustration by new users.
