Re: Request a little help from a GUI format guru!

1. I'd do something like: {fn.after(n).after(t).match(/whatever/)} I've been playing with it today; it's closer, but I also add special formatting to some shows, that a different rule needs to cover (I forgot to mention it). I've almost got it done... 2. FileBot doesn't drop anything, but I'm prett...

Re: Need Help Organizing Movies and TV shows.

I agree. I use TVDB on XBMC for shows and an IMDB scraper for movies. TMDb doesn't even have matches for some of my movies. What do I do when there is no match? Just ignore them and organize them manually after FileBot moves everything else? I've only toyed with my movie renaming - I had them manua...

Re: Need Help Organizing Movies and TV shows.

I'm not sure where the issue lies with pulling incorrect shows from the dbase - either FB is not 'accurate' enough, or the dbase APIs are not 'smart' enough. So when a show contains the word 'Love', for example, I always get about 25 results - even when the input file has the exact, correct matching...

Re: Need Help Organizing Movies and TV shows.

All of that actually looks quite foreign to me. Maybe I'm overthinking it. Or maybe I'm too used to being coddled by super simple GUIs. My mouth would water if I could just highlight a checkbox that says "organize files into genres." Howdy... the power of Filebot is that it is designed to let the u...

Re: Request a little help from a GUI format guru!

YES! The .indexOf combined with the map, is, I guess, what I needed... and I'm guessing it's building a temporary list from the map (.toList) to do the checking. I can use that in other ways, too!!! 'Position' is the word I'd neglected to use - I kept referring to 'priority' or 'preference'... when ...

Re: Request a little help from a GUI format guru!

It appears to me that this will -sort the genres after re-mapping them to my liking (1), -test if there are no genres at all (4), -and mark the show with non-matched genres as No Match (3), but I can't see it helping me select a genre based on a rule I set up (2).

Re: Request a little help from a GUI format guru!

Not sure if this will help... it's a much cleaner way to map the replacement genres, but that's only part of the process I need to figure out. I'd like to: 1) Map the existing genres for a show to my own ones - this can do that. But an if/then/else loop is needed here: 2) Check (all the genres for a...

Hey sorry, found a another show messing up. Newsreaders. For instance, S02E07 will rename to s01e07. Doesnt seem to pull the 2nd season from thetvdb.

1. I'm not enforcing a limit, but the toolkit might, and limiting a single line text field to ~10.000 chars seems perfectly reasonable choice to me. :D I'd make myself a script that strips away the comments. Yes, I retain a copy without comments & keep new code reconciled in both, so I can use the ...

Your format makes my eyes bleed. Well, I DID say it was 'kludgy'... I admitted it may not be efficient, but I'm still working to understand the code first, and make it work, then make it simpler. Performance is not my concern while I'm still trying to make things work; functionality is. *SIDEBAR: i...

Re: Request a little help from a GUI format guru!

Thank you!! I was finally able to get something working, as I decided not to set specific strings for the genre check. If TVRage just changed a bunch of genres, they might change a bunch more; so a general function is preferable so that any major re-sort doesn't have to be manually checked. While th...

Re: Request a little help from a GUI format guru!

1. The conclusive answer to having / in the filename is that you can't have / in the filename. I know this ;) ; but whoever maintains TVRage's dbase apparently doesn't know this, or has never used its API. 2. {'Military/War'.replace('/', '-')} I know this, too... ;) What I am searching for is a gen...

Big thanks to rednoah for creating this tool; and to (specifically) Ithiel & DevXen, whose 'ultimate' formatting posts have led so many forward.

Re: Need direction on script for custom filename parsing

I'm implementing a few changes with extended metadata lookup from into the format for all {info} related bindings. It will be more sane, but it'll stop working for case that used to sorta work.

Re: Need direction on script for custom filename parsing

Red - I can't get that to work; the genres[0] will fail about half the time. It's as if half of the 'missing' genres have blanks, where it works to return the NO GENRE string; but the other half of the 'missing' genres have empty spaces, which return a blank. I've worked around it for now, though. S...
