Awesome skin!

I'm just wondering, is there any way to change the "Preferences", "Now Playing" and "Play/Pause" colors to White? It would match perfectly with my system deskmod.

Thank you!

Thank you for such clean & minimalistic skin. How would you go about adjusting the center tab splitters to create more space for bigger center artwork? Also, how would you go about showing the playlist column tabs on top of the active playlist on the right side?

It would be great to have bigger center artwork space on the center to more effective portray the album cover, and have playlist manager to easily create/delete new playlists independently from left Artist columns.

This is so far the only foobar theme I can use.

Why?

 Because OF ALL the themes I tried, it's the only one that I load my library and it appeared there immediatly, in the other ones, it did not. And it also features a comfortable artist /album list, just the way I wanted

The bad?

No next/previous buttons!

Really add that and It'll be perfect (well at least for me)


Thanks a lot!

Hey sorry to bother you man, I really dig the skin, would there be a way so that when you click on an artist you'd be able to see the albums? I need to double-click to see the albums and it starts playing the first album. Thanks.

This is a great skin, probably the best I've used.
However, I encounter some problems when I install it.
I still have the toolbar thing at the bottom, and there's a white line where it lists my artists.
Also, the volume bar and seekbar are different.
This may be something wrong on my part, but if you know the solution, I'd appreciate your help.

Hey, really digging the skin. A couple of questions though,

Is there a way to select whole albums or highlight tracks that are selected? I tried fiddling with the background colors and it didn't work. I use discogs to tag and it's pretty annoying ctrl clicking and not knowing which tracks are selected.

Also, how are you supposed to scroll?

Thanks.

tastynuggets Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013
Never mind, you just fiddle around with ELPlaylist for the selecting thing. Still ot sure how you're supposed to scroll though, without putting a scrollbar that clashes with the skin.

I'm working on a new version where you can tell which tracks are selected. Scrolling is done by hovering the pointer above a list or element, then mouse wheel. :)

Oh, and my apologies to everyone for the slow update. I just have a lot of other things on my mind at the moment. ;)

tastynuggets Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2013
Thanks for the reply man, i just went to ELPlaylist and made selected tracks blue and that took care of that. I'm kinda rusty when it comes to foobar. I only bring up the scroll because i'm up on a laptop and no scrollwheel for me :(

But pg up and pg down works fine. 

I really love how you integrated the lyrics into the skin, handy for stuff like hip hop.

For all those with the missing buttons, I've come across the solution after googling and finding this thread:

[link]

Aside from having to correct the directory path the custom buttons are trying to point to for the images, apparently two dll files called "libpng" and "zlib" are required in the main foobar2000 directory (NOT the components folder). I already had zlib1.dll in my foobar2000 directory (included maybe?), but no libpng. I could not find a binary of the latest version but this older version worked for me:

[link] (I would just extract libpng13.dll, as the zlib1.dll is much older than the included one)

I now can read the buttons for this fantastic skin! Thanks again to the author for all his hard work! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you for making an effort, I'll look into it! :)

Also, I'm aware of the volume issue... it can be fixed in the script, but I'll have to figure out what to alter!

After seeing this theme, I immediately reinstalled and have gotten back into Foobar2000 all over again. Keep up the great work! I can't wait for the update.

I've noticed the biggest issues have already been pointed out by others, but there is one very minor thing i've come across with the volume bar. It doesn't seem to correctly correspond to actual volume level. Bringing the bar down to even just around 80% full, the actual volume becomes zero. Not sure if this is just on my end, but I thought i'd bring it up.

Thanks again!

When I saw the screenshot, I instantly loved it and downloaded it only to realize that it didn't support playlists. I hope you will add it soon, otherwise it's really such a waste for me to give up on this awesome theme.

Great skin. Also very usable. Just this;

Preferences - now playing etc. buttons are missing some images (like BLACKsettings.png) in the skin folder I think. They appear black unlike you screenshot here. Please reupload the file.

Well, yes. The spectrum visualisation is basically just a right-click, while the volume- and seekbars require script modification. :)
An ideal solution for this skin would be some sort of drop-down menu/colour selection to change all colours in the skin, but I just don't have the scripting skills to pull it off.

I'm in tears. Beautiful.
Some wishes:
- tabs, for filter by Arist, Genre, etc.
- selecting what info you want displayed in the middle panel. So I can turn off biography and possibly select file info like bitrates and all that.

When can we expect the new version? I am really loving it how it is, however there are a few things its missing, like a button to skip to the next track and go back and a few other things that you have mentioned adding.

Skip/next, previous and shuffle/default playback buttons have been added. 

I intend to add playlists, folder structure view, genre filter. This will require the addition of tabs, and I need some time to figure out how to do that. :P

Made some changes to appearance and added buttons. Left and right spectrum panels (visualisations) are now linked to left and right audio channels.

Feedback is very welcome! ;)

In my configuration, just right-click the playlist -> sort -> default :)
Don't know why, but it has to be done manually.

Preferences - Display - Columns UI
In the "filter" tab under "behaviour" is "sort incoming files by". Just added %date% between album artist and album. Seems to work :)

I really like this skin and I hope you continue working on it because to me it's one of the best I've seen! Are you thinking of adding a scrollbar to the playlist? I know you can show the scrollbar on the Style page in ELPlaylist Settings, but it doesn't really fit with how your skin looks. Is there a way I can do this myself?
Reply
:iconbjoershol:
Bjoershol Featured By Owner May 16, 2013  Student General Artist
The scrollbar in ELplaylist shows the default Windows scrollbar, or that of any theme you've installed. I decided to remove it altogether until I find a way to make my own playlist. :)

If you really want to use the skin with a scrollbar, you could always find a Windows Theme that's dark grey and hope it fits well enough! ;)

Oh, and thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it!

Others are encountering the same problem, so I'll have to figure out a more stable solution for the next release!

For now, you could try right clicking where the buttons should appear, select "splitter settings", choose one of the three buttons and hit "configure". When you select the 'main menu item' at the top, it should be set to use custom text. The problem might lie elsewhere in your case though, I can't really know.
