Hi Guys, firstly thanks to MAWU for the recent fix. Alas, it seems the folks at IMDB are playing around yet again with the website. This time it seems the Plot Synopsis is not taken from the current script and just leaving Plot Synopsis written by written by in its place. Everything else seems to be taken still.

Mawu can you find the fix as it seems "you are our only hope" said the princess to the droid

Sorry for late reply, but I wasn't often using XMM this year due to personal reasons.
So I have heard from the IMDB changes the last week by an email from jimini.

At first thanks to Mawu for his previous fixings

I haven't tested every info especially when the option was set to 0 in the script.
So if there are still missing info let me know!

Well, although I have tested it with a few movies which all imported the genres correctly it seems as if there are different versions they are shown...
Moonfall, Speed and The Batman do import the info but others do not. I will have a look at it during this week.

Genres are okay now, at least for all tested movies.

Hi Guys, Seems once again there has been a change to the IMDBTV behaviour. Back to taking season info as S00 instead of whatever it might be S01 etc. It's minor but does throw out the order of episodes. JDommi do you have a quick fix for it? Thanks in advance.

Now I came across completely different problems than not having data for one field etc. One problem is, Access can only hold up to 2GB database and that is a hard limit, so at some point when I was downloading all available information, it just stopped saving and I had to look into the data and remove some of those, to free up some space. That is doable in Access but just a heads up to anyone who would want to store a lot of information and a lot of movies. I have almost 5k movies and around 3,2k with all actors import it just stopped.

Another problem which I could not fix is that if you want to take all actors of a movie or series then it seems like magic script has memory limits for one movie and while for any movie it's not a problem since you won;t have more than few hundreds actors in it, but for instance X-files has more than 1,4k actors and only around 1k is imported and assigned to the series. All the other are added but not assigned to the series, so they end up in the database without connection to the movie (series). Any ideas?

I only can say something to the actors.
I was trying to add all the Episode showstars to the database treated like every actor inclusive the connections to the TVShow. Unfortunately XMM doesn't handle that (or I was too stupid to find the trick!). Maybe I haven't disabled the import of those showstars in the IMDB script for TVShows. For moviesw that shouldn't happen.

I have to say that I spent a lot of time digging into the scripts, I corrected many things and once I'm beginning to believe that I undertand it, it suprises me again. Yesterday I was trying to find a way to overcome the problem I described above, I did not touch my main tv series script but worked on the copy of it. Still when I run the main script today, it does not give me any episodes for tv series and I have no idea why. When I run the same script in debugger, it works pretty fine. So I guess, even if you know script rules and its language, there's still so much behind it that you can't influence, which makes it very hard to completely familiarize. Is there any chance to have the surce code of magic script engine? Without it, I'm spending so much time on finding the root cause while in fact, it cannot be fixed by the script itself because the issue lies behind the scene. I will keep trying but more and more I'm a bit losing faith in it to be honest. And sionce I came acroos this memory limitation for a database, I;m starting to think if it;s worth trying knowing that at some point my database will just weight too much. If it could be set on MSSQL Express (which is free for personl use) then it would remove the problem but it's not the case :(

The Debugger and the original ScriptEditor are two different progs. The Editor is really based on the ScriptEngine and the Debugger is a third party prog which was written in another program lanuguage and without any knowledge of the sourcecode except of the command names.
Especially on find commands they can differ in cursor for 1 position. Beside that the Editor treats upper- as lowercase writing.

For the sourcecode I only can say "Ask Ale". I had thought of modifying XMM myself but unfortunately I'm programming in Delphi and not VBnet like Ale.

Plot keywords seem to be broken.

https://www.mediafire.com/file/5v0551aubtije16/IMDB.COM_%2528Complete%2529_JD%25284%2529.txt/file

Keywords and Taglines are now fixed.

But I have a really bad guess:
On fixing the taglines I have seen that the first one is shown on the main movie page but in the HTML source I can't find the shown text. At least for The Batman (2022) and Constantine (2005) it is so. I hope that they don't change the site to decrypt the data or load it by java script on after loading the base page.
That would be the final curtain for XMM as the ScriptEngine isn't able to grab any readable info...
So please check it yourself and say that I only was too blind to find it!

Thanks for the fix.

Your observation concerning the IMDB source code is correct.
When I mark the area where the tagline is listed and take a look at the source code of the selected area I can find the tagline text again.

Here is the fix:

Please bring back the functionality of searching movies with their tt prepended ids, i rename every movie with these ids before importing to guarantee 100% accuracy, now it does not work if i don't clean every one of them, and need to choose the movie every time.

Well, I don't know how...
For me the IMDB script normally imports the correct movie automatically when the (original) title and the media year is identical. As far as I can see there is no function to extract the tt number out of the movie name.
If there is that functionality then ask Ale for the right way, please.
