I told you already, specify Child of - Playlists with the Position list boxes.
Alright, thanks! I think I got it.. I'm just going to sync my phone and see if it shows up on there..

You could find those nodes in the Magic Nodes branch of the tree panel, but if you need to get them in the Playlists branch then you should open Magic Nodes Settings dialog box, choose specific mask and specify Child of - Playlists with the Position list boxes.
Actually, I might have done this right.. Let me know if this will do what I'm trying to do:

Code: Select all

<Group|Name:Playing statistics|Show tracks:No>\Complete albums where at least one track is not played|Icon:Top level|Filter:Songs.IDAlbum IN (SELECT IDAlbum FROM Songs GROUP BY IDAlbum HAVING Count(TrackNumber) = Max(Cast(TrackNumber As integer)) AND Count(TrackNumber) > 3 AND Sum(CASE WHEN PlayCounter > 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) < Count(*) - 1)\<Album|Trim:1|Statistic:Count(Items)>\<Album with album artist|Statistic:Count(Tracks)>
You are very good! That is the right syntax.

I downloaded Magic Nodes, and the two masks that I found interesting were "Unplayed complete albums" and "Complete albums where at least half of the tracks are not played" but I was trying to figure out if there was a way I could use Magic Nodes to create a custom node for albums that have at least one unplayed track. Is it possible you could modify either of the two I mentioned and then help me add it as a new node in the "Playing statistics" node and create a Playlist with that?

You could use the Magic Nodes add-on and some of its masks, e.g. the predefined "Albums added in last 10 weeks" mask from the Albums folder or some mask from Playing statistic folder, e.g. "Complete albums where at least half of the tracks are not played".

Is there a script to make a playlist of new albums?

I tend to listen to full albums at a time, and I have a lot of albums that I've been meaning to listen to but just haven't gotten around to it yet and they're starting to pile up. I'm wondering if there is a script that could make a playlist that contains all the albums with less than X amount of plays in total/contains less plays than the track total/Contains X amount of tracks with 0 plays or just anything that you think could help me out. Thanks!
