I’m trying to modify the default script (since I’m new to this I’m trying to avoid creating my own and messing things up). I don’t understand the second line, specifically why that entire line isn’t simply replaced with:
$if2(%albumartist%,%artist%)/ $if($ne(%albumartist%,),%album%/,) $if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),%discnumber%-,) $if($ne(%albumartist%,),$num(%tracknumber%,2) ,) $if(%_multiartist%,%artist% - ,)%title%
From my testing it appears that both the default script and my modified version provide the same results: either 1) the album or 2) simply skip the step (in the case that there is no album defined). Specifically, my testing shows that for the latter case (no defined album) both the default script, and my modified alternative would return the same result: an album folder would NOT be created and the script would simply skip to the next part of the naming script, thus putting the file directly in the artist folder.
What am I missing here? Why is the default name script checking for a non-blank albumartist at all?
