Well, I don't understand all of your arguments but I "buy" : Return to the first solution for the movie
Quote
AddAward(EventName, AwardName, AwardCategory, AwardRecipient, EventYear, AwardWon);

and the same use EventYear for the People script in order to warrant the same data (I have done the test with Casablanca and Michael Curtiz).

Ivek, thank you very much for your explanation (I attach the scripts and the screenshots).

BTW, I want to publish a new release the next Wednesday, 8/8/2018 (nice date, isn't it?) with those scripts, proxy support and other bugs corrected.

Dear users, please, tell me all you bug discovers in order to correct it fast for this next version (and the 9/8/2018 we'll can go in holidays  ;D )

Really this is a correction of a first version error. The Script Manual says:

    procedure AddAward(Event, Award, Category, Recipient, Year : String; const Won : Boolean);
    Adds an award to a record. Parameters:
    Event = name of the event
    Award = award name
    Category = award category
    Recipient = for movie records this variable should contain the name of a specific person who won the award and
                     for people records the variable should contain the title of a movie for which the person won the award
    Year = release year of a movie (only applicable when adding award to a person record)
    Won = set to true if the recipient won the award and to false otherwise


In the first version the movie script added the "EventYear" (normally is the next year of the movie). But now we can add awards with the people script and then the year must be the movie year so we could have the same award with different years. So, in order to respect the Script Manual, the movie scripts doesn't write the year and is the people scripts who writes the year.
BTW, I have hesitated to write the year of the movie instead of leaving it blank but I do not know the consistency of the data. What do you think?

PVD_0.9.9.21_MOD-V.2018.06.16
When opening the database i had used till the mod in 0.9.9.21 it gave the error that is found in atachement..
I just replaced fbembed.dll with the one from the default install that is version 2.51.26351 and it open the database without problems.
I don't remember if I updated the file manually or was updated when i installed firebird server or when i tested 1.0.27 version.
So in case someone has a similar problem this can help.
Question:
its there a way to rename the IMDB_Votes custom field to IMDB Votes that i had from the original script?

You give me a idea: In the next MOD version I'll tried to update all possible dll. Please alert me if with this change appears news bugs.

BTW, I advise you to keep the names of the fields instead of changing the scripts: It’s to work once but it remains forever.
If you want to preserve your DB, you can do it without data loose in Preferences / Movies / Custom Items, select the field, push the “Rename” button and write the new standard MOD name.
The use of spaces in the name of fields is not a very good idea. I changed it many years ago, I think because it gave me problems with the Export Templates.

Thank you Ivek23. Modified and works well.
Found a minor bug:
Movie:  Ratatouille (2007) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0382932/
MPAA retrieved: Rated PG for mild action                                                                        Edit     
It adds the "Edit" at the end of the MPAA rating retrived. Other movies works well. Will continue testing.
Cheers.

When you post this bug I read the IMDB page and I saw that there was a commentary in the Parents Guide that said "Proposed MPAA: Rated PG for mild action". I think that this caused the confusion of the script. Today this comment has disappeared and I am not able to reproduce the error for correct it.
Thank you very much for your alert.

MOD version Update:
If you use MOD version and you wants update to the newer MOD versions by yourself (advanced users) you could do the following steps (let us know your problems to be able to improve the guide):
  • Important: Make a secure copy of your actual working PVD installation version
  • Unzip the downloaded file new version and change the folders: Scripts and Plugings of your actual working PVD.
  • The last MOD version has updated the dll files. You can copy and paste overwriting those files if you wants the dll actualization not really needed.
(Remember: For normal users, the author strongly recommends using the SyMenu free launcher to install and keep updated the portable Personal Video Database 1.0.2.7 MOD version)


Moving from original PVD version to MOD version.
Perhaps, there may be many PVD users who have a movie collection in a PVD original installation and don't want to start over. For them, we suggest the following steps.

"Slow Copy-Paste" own PVD installation/collection adaptation for normal 1.0.2.7 users (not work with 0.9.9.21):
  • Important: Make a secure copy for your own actual PDV installation.
  • Install the last PVD MOD version (with SyMenu or downloading)
  • Run your actual original PVD 1.0.2.7 copy
  • Run PVD MOD (with SyMenu or with 'portable.bat')
  • In your actual collection selects a packet of movies records (try first one by one movie for learning and after increase the number), and Copy with the option in the right mouse button
  • Pass to the PVD MOD and Paste with the option in the right mouse button
  • Wait more or less two minutes (it depends of PC), go with the next packet and so on just to finish.

"Dirty" own PVD installation/collection adaptation for advanced users:
  • Important: Make two copies a secure copy and a test copy of your own actual PDV installation.
  • Unzip the downloaded file version and change the folders: Scripts and Plugings of your test copy.
  • Run PVD in portable mode (portable.bat)
  • In Preferences/Movies/Custom Items add the fields:
    Set (Short Text), Updated (Short Text), TOP_250 (Number), IMDB_Votes (Number), TheMoviedb_Votes (Number), FilmAffinity_Votes (Number)

    (If you have some equivalent fields and you want to preserve your data, you can do it without data loose in Preferences/Movies/Custom Ítems, selecting the field, pushing the “Rename” button and writing the new standard MOD name)

    The last MOD version has updated the dll files. You can copy and paste this files if you wants the dll actualization not really needed.

Controling the retreived information in PVD MOD:
There are two way to control the saved of information in the PVD database.
a) The PVD standard with the 'Set Overwrite Options for the selected plugin' (the "Calendar" button, at right of the script 'Import name').
b) The custom fields and others options aren't included in this menu so the scripts have hardcode parameters to managed it.
Now in PVD MOD can be easily changed launching the first script '**** Scripts Configuration ****'. These are its powerful capabilities and how use it:
•) Launch the PVD MOD Configuration Script (you must have selected one movie or one person):



•) Then the PDV MOD Script Configuration windows opens:



1) Choose the script configuration sheet (Orange arrow)
2) You can activate or deactivate a script checking the Active box (Blue oval). The activate scripts are showed in PVD.
3) Check or un-check the desired option (Green oval). In the example you can avoid download all the IMDB information pages so the script will go faster. This is interesting when you are updating only some particular info, for instance the IMDBRating, than you don't need the actors.
4) There is other numeric parameters that you can change, for instance, the number of actors saved in PVD.
5) Finaly you must saved it (vertical Red arrow). PVD MOD restarts in the same position because it needs compile the scripts with the new parameters.

The author recomends you strongly use **** Scripts Configuration ****. You can gain a lot of time.

Usage:
  • Download and unzip the last version file included in the first post.
  • Run PVD in portable mode (portable.bat) with internet connection.
  • Selecting a movie or a person, launch the first Import script "**** Scripts Configuration ****" in order to adapt the scripts to your own needs (for instance, uncheck "Active" box for no used languages) Example
  • The rest operations are the same that PVD
Important advice: TheMovieDB is the recommended script, for speed and reliability. Take notice, that your are downloading full pages of internet with images, ad's, etc. For instance if you retrieved all IMDB info, your are downloading 1+5 pages for each movie.

The last oficial version has been the 1.0.2.7 published in the 05 November 2013 by Nostra, the oficial programer and owner of the program.
After this date, the information providers has changed his pages and, the more important, they have passed to a secure protocol HTTPS:  PVD is not prepared for this protocol and crashes with a “IO Handler Value is not Valid” error.

Ivek23, the person that have supported the forum and the scripts programs with a important personal effort, thank you very much, has surrounded this problem installing and configuring a proxy, Proxomitron, but this require some computer skills and PVD is no longer portable.

So, we have made a MOD version of PVD 1.0.2.7 with the next characteristics:
  • Portable (run with portable.bat) and not others installations needed
  • Clean of not working plugings and scripts providers.
  • Script over Plugin preference. This allow open source code of scripts.
  • Secondary, designed for basic use and in connection with KODI.
To surround the HTTPS problem, it has been necessary to make an intermediate download in the file of the pages. This makes HTTPS scripts slower than with the Proxomitron solution, you must choose which solution to use because they are not compatible (but the working scripts can be easily adapted for exchange).

Until Nostra awakens from his Odinsleep, we pray to God that it will be soon, this is our humble contribution to this superb program, the most flexible and powerful movie data base:

http://vvveasy.altervista.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/PVD_1.0.2.7_MOD-V20181101.zip

(The author strongly recommends using the SyMenu free launcher to install and keep updated the portable Personal Video Database 1.0.2.7 MOD version. It's easy and completely free without charges, advertisements, etc. (same philosophy as PVD) and perhaps you discover other advantages (for instance the Win10 users don't need use the infamous Windows Tiles))

Note: By Ivek23 request, below is included the adaptation of version 0.9.9.21.  It does not have the same guarantees as 1.0.2.7 especially because this version of PVD has a different scripting engine and the People part is less developed-DISCONTINUED:PVD_0.9.9.21_MOD-V20180922.zip


Temporal Acumulative Scripts Patch date: 2019.02.17 (to copy in PVD folder for overwriting the existing files) in:

The Beta 3 Release Candidate version with (EN, ES, FR in TheMovieDB) and (ES, EN in FilmAffinity) (you can hide/activate in Script Configuration).

http://vvveasy.altervista.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/PersonalVideoDB_MOD-V.Beta_.3.RC_.zip

Beta Testers: Run NOW with "debug.bat". So if you have problems, please is very important the name of the movie and attach the file: PersonalVideoDB\log.txt   

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Dirty" own PVD installation/collection adaptation for normal users:
Important: Make a secure copy and a test copy of your own actual PDV installation.
Unzip the beta versión and change the folders: Scripts and Plugings of your test copy.
Run PVD in portable mode (portable.bat) without internet proxi.
In Preferences/Movies/Custom Ítems add the fields:
Set (Short Text), TOP_250 (Number), IMDB_Votes (Number), TheMoviedb_Votes (Number), FilmAffinity_Votes (Number)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Corrected:
1) Now all the IMDB images are downloaded by PVdBDownPage.exe so no more problems with HTTPS (but is slower because the need of file).
2) The poster and photo heigth are script paremeter in 1200.
3) The images for SearchList are downloaded in heigth 200.
4) The INTERNET_TEST_ITERATIONS   is now a script user parameter.
5) I belive that IMDB slow the download if detects several ask. I recomended use TheMovieDB first time in order to get the IMDB URL of movies and in people.

I do as I have said in the last post (see line 501 in the attached script) with a user parameter MAX_IMAGE_HEIGTH = 1200;
Tell me if this script works OK with Alexander Jamieson movie in your Win 7 installation (that uses curl).
If it works OK I will do the same in the IMDB People script and we can thought to apply in the SearchList.

By the way, I have notice that IMDB reduces the download speed if you do a lot of ask or if the page is not popular: Tehn the script ask to the user Retry. If you have a lot of this problems we can increase the INTERNET_TEST_ITERATIONS   = 5; before to ask the user.

Function DownloadImage(URL)  return 1 if it can get a file from the url and 0 if not exist this file.
With this funtionality the script can try severals resolutions from the no resized URL.
For instance: try  '._V1_UY2048_.jpg'
      if not exists try with '._V1_UY1800_.jpg'
      else with ' '._V1_UY1200_.jpg'
      else with original no resized URL.

In the end, the objetif is not download a big poster ... and 1200 points of heigth is a good size.
