Hello ThY,

LikeADJ, each time you enter the settings, fetches all genres of your entire library and creates a combobox with all genres.

Just check the genres you want to mix and LikeADJ will only use the selected genres.

Busy but always here :). A lot of thanks to Steven and all contributors again for MusicBee :-* .

New version 2.0.24 :

- I don't use anymore 'mbApiInterface.NowPlayingList_PlayLibraryShuffled();'.I now use my own random way.
- The first song now follows your criteria.
- Bug concerning the playlist generation is fixed.
- All dependencies have been updated.

The download link of the newest DLL is on the first post of this thread.

I'm unable to install the plugin because of an error.

Also, since there aren't any install instructions for this, I'm not certain I have all the right files in the right place(s), but I encountered the error when I tried these install steps:
- From MusicBee > Preferences > Plugins select "Add Plugin"
- Select the mb_LikeADJ.dll file.

I'm also not certain I have the latest release, since the GitHub repository lists zero releases.

It's a great idea for features for MusicBee though, so I hope I can get it working. Thanks in advance for any help.

New version 2.0.25 :

- I now use 'mbApiInterface.Setting_GetPersistentStoragePath()'. No need to compute if MusicBee is installed, portable or from the Windows Store.
  WARNING to LikeADJ users before this version : all your presets will be reseted.
- All dependencies have been updated again.
- I bypass 'Love' warning in the 'mb_LikeADJ.log' because this tag is on/off.

With the new version, I was able to install the plugin and get it working with music tags, as it says in the instructions.

But speaking of the instructions, something is missing. It doesn't say how to begin using the plugin to play/create a DJ mix playlist. It was only by accident that I noticed you could right-click on a track in the library and use the plugin's option to "LikeaDJ - Start". Perhaps the README material could be rewritten to be easier to follow.

Anyway, fantastic idea for a plugin and I look forward to using it.

I noticed your start post mentions 2.1.0, and the download link does indeed retrieve 2.1.0.
But on GitHub I see 2.1.1.
Is that a stable release? If so, the start post should probably be modified?
