Eventually, repetition will kick in and I'll learn to do the changes myself out of habit, so don't feel you need to go out of your way change anything Yeah, I'm sorry for changing my ways with scripts like these.
Know that I'm not a coder in any trained or professional sense of the word, and I often start concocting a script out of my amateur brain until it 'works'.
But then sometimes I find out later that it's a bit obese and convoluted, and I can leave some things out or make some small changes to improve it or make things more efficient.
Maybe that's what happened here.
I believe the latest version of the script performs very well. (It does for me)
I will check your (earlier) posts in this thread to refresh/understand what your objective regarding subgenres is again.
If I recall correctly, it shouldn't be hard to solve it by simply adding a line or two.
I'll be back. (not today ;-)
Maybe I can save you some time… On the first page you mention
Users that don't want their original Genre tag altered or (over)written, and have for example setup a Subgenre tag in MusicBee, only need to make a small edit in the scripts:
- In script #1, navigate to the last line saying:
and change it to:
- In script #2, add the line:
Now the Genre tag will not get altered or written, and the retrieved genres will get written to the Subgenre tag only."
That's what I've been doing. The script does work really well, I have no complaints - other than what I've been complaining about
