View Full Version : Req: Select presets by rating
6th March 2002, 02:49
After I've spent all the time to rate the presents as I like them, I would like a way to temporarily play only those ranked at 5, or only the fours, or only the fours and fives, etc. Six (0-5) checkboxes in the options to enable/disable playing of presets at each level would be really great. My use for this is that, if I've got people coming over for a party or something, why not show them only the best? Then once they're gone, re-enable all the presets to change ratings.
Secondly, could you add a hotkey to, while playing, return to the previous preset? Often I watch one from across the room and want to rate it higher or see the title, but it's changed by the time I get there. A key to go back to the last one would solve this.
Excellent work so far. If any of my suggestions were implimented, I'd be delighted. Thanks for your time.

Firstly, regarding the ratings, I don't worry about them much anymore. I keep the best ones (the ones I would have given a 4 or 5) in one folder, and use that as the "show other people" folder, and then keep all the ones which are worthwhile in another folder. Only my way of doing it, it's not a bad idea though.
Although, perhaps using a textbook with a "min" rating would be better to conserve space on the config screen? So, if you entered "5" in the box, it would only play those rated "5", if you entered "3" in the box it would play those with rating 3, 4 or 5....
It would be nice to have this feature though in case I ever decide I want to rate them again though...
Your other idea is excellent, I have often skipped from one preset to the next without checking the name of the last one. I guess you mean a key which does the opposite to spacebar (ie. goes back one preset instead of going forward).
(PS. Just as an interim solution, as MD v1.03 is probably a while away, try pressing "R" to turn on sequential preset loading. That way it will load them in alphabetical order and you'll know which one you was the one you were up to.....)
Lakitu (and anyone else), it would be good if you'd like to make some presets of your own, or comment on them, please go to the preset forums and have a say! Thanks!

Yeah, I was thinking about just typing a min threshold, but I realized that it'd be good to be able to scan all the ones rated 1 or 0 to ensure one didn't get set that low by accident.. and make sure all of them really are that bad. Such is my thinking, anyhow.
And yeah, for the backspace, I meant one to do the opposite of the spacebar.
