Hi everyone
Sorry I'm not really present since a lot of time (trying to do a new skin but it didn't work like I wanted so I give up for some times)

LadyShiva you can do what you want with my skin and my artist folder.
For the online mode it's because the size of last.fm picture are small.

Hey I'm curious, what does clicking the little "online" button do? I clicked it out of curiosity, and it pretty much nuked my install and wiped all my custom settings (making a dark mode version for myself because I have an ocular disease). I had most of it backed up, but I had to start mostly from scratch, and I have no idea why it happened or how to disable it. i.imgur.com/UFyRHhw.png

Would you mind if I uploaded the portable version of your player with an expanded version of your artist folder on a forum? I'm working on an artist pack for Vocaloid, and I'd like to gauge interest in the project by letting people easily test it out. I would of course link here and give all credits to you :)

Hi Mac
Just to letting you know that your skin is suits the best for my preference (i tried numerous player).
Album Art
Artist Wallpaper & Lyrics & Bio
Oscilloscope & Bitrate Info
- just what I needed.

Couple of suggestion that you might consider:
1. Can the album art display (the outline) bevelled and shadowy effect + shiny features - feels like bit bland
2. Can the artist wallpaper height increased?

p/s: Wonder what fooXgen5 will look alike? Totally different look?

:iconmacstew:

For fooXgen5: It will be different.

Hi I'm trying to download the "CLEAN PORTABLE VERSION (updated to 4.0.3)" link however Mega is asking me for a decryption key in order to download the file. Am I missing it somewhere? I read over the whole page and found no mention of it. 
Thanks. The skin looks great! I can't wait to try it.

Thanks it downloaded perfectly. It's an awesome skin!
I just wanted to clear two things up about the art. As you can see in this ( img801.imageshack.us/img801/83…picture, album art is populated in playlist view but it does not appear in the larger format when it's playing (where you can see the "no cover" image unchanged).
The other thing is I was wondering if there was any method of automatically fetching the big artist pictures as well?

Thank you very much for your hard work and your responses!

Try this:
go to file>preferences>display>album art>front cover
and add the name of your album art
ex: cover.jpg, folder.jpg etc...

and restart foobar 2000

:icont1suka:
t1suka Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013
Is there a way to make it use the art fetched from lastfm for that album art picture? 
I tried pointing the thing to:
C:\Users\Pavel\Desktop\foobar2000\lastfm\album\%artist% - %album%*
But that still didn't change the "no cover" picture. It did however mess up the album art in the playlist view so I removed that source.
Reply
:iconmacstew:
MacStew Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Try to embed the cover in your mp3/flac etc... with ex: mp3tag

if this still doesn't work try to reset the skin.

Try to reset the skin: Right click on the big cover : splitter setting : go to global variable and delete all, apply, ok
Try to reload the skin: File>preferences>display>column ui> Look in MAIN click on import (fcl importing and exporting)
Browse to: your foobar2000/skins/fooXgen4/ and load fooXgen4.0.3.fcl

I can't reproduce the problem so it's little difficult for me, sorry.

:icont1suka:
t1suka Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013
Ok I know what will reproduce the problem. The issue is that I'm trying to make it automatically fetch the art using the biography servers.
So if you go to biography servers > Misc and then check the checkbox to provide artwork to other components, you will notice that the playlist view artwork will populate but the currently playing track's larger version will not.

No, there is only last.fm and on last.fm people upload small pictures(500x500) so you need to do this manually.

My skins doesn't really fit your screen size

It's the portable version???

hmmmmm.. it seems to find the pictures because i see: the stars, and other pictures
I can't reproduce the problem because if i download the portable version and extract it: it works.

Look if winrar extract everything correctly: look, in the images folder(skins/fooXgen4/images), for this files: Back_up.png, Library.png, Back_bot.png

If you found this files:

Try to reset the skin: Right click on the big cover : splitter setting : go to global variable and delete all, apply, ok
Try to reload the skin: File>preferences>display>column ui> Look in MAIN click on import (fcl importing and exporting)
Browse to: your foobar2000/skins/fooXgen4/ and load fooXgen4.0.3.fcl

Thanks for your hard work on this project, I love every update (especially the auto update version!) :)

One thing though: can you add a scroll bar to the Playlist and Library menu so that the user doesn't have to break his or her mouse wheel off? :P Would be awesome, thanks!  :happybounce:

you can do it by yourself: you need to do it for both mode

right click on the playlist and "Settings..." go to "Style" and change "hide" to "default" or "show".

I took a previous version and update the skin with auto-download version
(I will look for a new fullscreen mode later).

update 4.0.3 coming very very soon 1-2 days:
-auto downloading is now implemented (after some hours looking for "why the auto-downloaded picture appears after 1min, and not after 3-4 sec like before." I fixed it by doing a proper re-installation >.<)
-I finally made a 'online button' \o/
-Biography implemented

hi, i downloaded all necessary components and did exactly what you said, but it always says "aww, crashed" ( with wsh panel mod's safe mode checkbox unchecked ). anyways, i downloaded your CLEAN PORTABLE VERSION and it works good :]
but lyrics and that "wide" cover art don't show up, i just keep right clicking on the "wide" cover and no option to search lyrics or load cover..
thanks for your great work, and yeah, help please :p

:iconmacstew:

click on the text icon next to the title for lyrics.
If you don't see the cover:
look if the cover's name is cover.jpg, folder.jpg
otherwise go to file>preferences>display>album art>front cover : search pattern and add the name of the cover.

-No update for so long because i'm trying a lot of stuff but i don't like it.

Hi,

this is just my tastes, but what do you think of the modifications in the screenshot below, if you like them do you think it may be possible to add them in your future release ?

thanks :-)

1. Biography will come soon at the exact same place or next to the artist name like I did with lyricshow.
2. I reduced the size of the library to 300 instead of 350.
3. For the waveform seekbar, it's only temporary.
4. Codec+bitrate: I don't know if it's necessary.
5. Half smaller or possibility to remove: Right now I like how it is, but if some people want to reduce the size, I will see what I can do.

Thx MacStew.

1. it would be cool to keep the possibility to display at the same time : lyrics + artist info
4. i think it's always cool to know/have the bitrate displayed for each album (and double useful if we want to remove the bottom frame -where foobar displays these info- using UI hacks for example)
5. personally, i'd prefer a smaller panel because i need the foobar window not too big for my desktop, but it's only my needs :-)

thx again for your work!

Now that you've added the playlist viewer, this is my default theme for foobar now. I just have a few questions to fix some issues I'm having:

1. Whenever my playlist comes up in ELPlaylist, I have to right click in it and select Sort>Default to have it sort into the correct order. Is there a way to have it sort correctly without doing this every time?
2. How do I set up the top panel so that it automatically downloads the artist image like your auto-downloading version does?

Thanks!

There has to be a way to change the initial track sorting. It looks like someone else already solved this issue, but I haven't been able to get their solution to work. All I want is to not have to sort it every time I change artists. It has something to do with the way foobar or columns UI is importing the tracks into ELplaylist. You might have better luck than I did fixing it:

Are you talking about libray tree because playlist viewer I don't have this one.
So that mean it didn't save the config of library tree.

Right Click on "Artist"> Edit View:
View Format: %artist% \ %date% - %album% \ %TRACKNUMBER%. %TITLE%
Sort tracks sent to playlist by: %artist% - %date% - %album% - %tracknumber%
Reply
:iconfrothewin:
frothewin Featured By Owner May 12, 2013
This is exactly what I was looking for! Two suggestions for when you share your configuration file:

1. Add the disc number to "Sort tracks sent to playlist by". It should look like this: %ALBUM ARTIST% - %DATE% - %ALBUM% - %DISCNUMBER% - %TRACKNUMBER% - %TITLE%
2. Change it from Artist to Album Artist. When sorting albums by artist it makes more sense to use the album artist.

*Library tree

But I need to share the configuration file of library tree with the version "skin only".
