But I'm not happy with it. When I pick a new track, the whole album is added, when I'd like for only the selected track to be queued.
So for the script to work best, you'd better queue new songs to the playlist instead of playing them (queuing the album), if that makes sense.
This part is fine for me, because I run XBMC with the "Play the next song automatically" setting disabled. If I want to play an album I press "Queue" on the album. With your script, the last song of the album then attempts to generate a last.fm party playlist, which is fine by me too
Quote:You're right in that the script acts as a toggle
That's fine too, although it seems that sometimes it stops working without me toggling it off. What events (if any) will stop the script attempting to generate a playlist? Pressing stop? Selecting "clear playlist" ?
Quote: and as you pointed out, you have to re-restart the script to make in work after restarting xbmc. I still haven't found the autotexec.py code. But I'll post it when i do. I just did a quick search for: "autoexec.py delete pid file". You might have more luck searching yourself. The idea is that xbmc itself needs to delete the .pid file inside the addon folder when xbmc starts. This prevents the "exit partymode" message from popping up when the script is not running.
Would love to do this, but my search only found this thread
I have close to zero experience in scripting, but if you could point me in the right direction of this whenever you have time that would be super kind of you.
I would also be perfectly happy, if the script just ran by default (with no dialogue) whenever XBMC starts - don't know if that's possible though.
Thanks so much
