Sorry for being a real n00b, but how do I change the text colour? Can't seem to find any options in there...

Using the silver skin, but with white text...

EDIT: -found it... my bad!-

Now updated for MSN Messenger 7.0.0632 support. Note it wont work with the leaked 604 build anymore.

Ive resolved the aa text problem, but am not sure about the transparency issue. I know its from the updating of the text every second which is somehow resetting the alpha of the whole window, but cant reproduce the problem.

What are your settings?

/EDIT: Nevermind, Ive found the problem. I was simply drawing over the text area with the background image to clear it, instead of doing a proper clear. I needed to set the compositing mode to src copy instead of src over to prevent layering the apha values on top of each other constantly. You will notice there is actually some transparency around the album cover, this is because this isnt cleared when the text is updated.

thank you very much ! tell me when the correction will be available 

btw, I've started doing a gif skin for the toaster, don't know if I'll have time to finish it one day, but if you're willing to do a gallery on your website, I'll be glad to send it to you.

The problem should hopefully be fixed in 0.1.6 up now.

One of these days I might get around to getting that site up properly, though probably with a different domain. Ive used tikiwiki a bit, which is kinda what im looking for, though I need something a bit more lightweight.

Use %_time_elapsed% instead.

Even trying that all I am getting is a '?'.  Is there something I am missing?

I use %_time_elapsed%/%_length% and it works as intended.

Maybe you should also tick "show dynamic info" or how it's called in Preferences/Display.

'Components' on main menu > Toaster > Configure Toaster

You can add it by yourself: Preferences -> Core -> Main menu items, right click on the Components group (or any other group) and select Insert item -> Command... -> Components/Toaster/Configure Toaster.

I am trying to get this to work with shoutcast as well.

Ok I am getting the pop up with correct info but still in msn it just shows the name of the shoutcast server. Its not chaning dynamicly?

How can I get it to work correctly?

See what I mean:



Thanks,
  Will

@waileongyeo: I have this already coded for the winamp version, and will put it in the foobar2000 version too, its pretty simple.

@Superunknown: If there is a simple callback mechanism for this I will put it in, but I couldnt find anything with a quick look. I could use all sorts of hacks to do it, but will only do it if there is a nice clean way to do it.

@war59312: The MSN Messenger info doesnt change dynamically because otherwise you will have it updating every second. I would suspect that every time this changes, a network packet goes out to all your contacts, so I avoid doing this, and do it only if the song changes.

I couldnt find a clean way to detect track changes in http streams in fb2k other than comparing the title every second. If you know of a clean callback method to detect actual track changes I will gladly make the fix. Using dynamic_info callback doesnt seem to make a difference.

I don't know if this was suggested before but a "Pin to desktop" (or "Always on bottom") option would be really great for Toaster.

Dont know, but foo_osd.dll does it some how.

Well, I have also notice if you launch MSN Messenger after foobar then it does not get the song message. You have to stop and start music again. Could that be fixed. I know its minor and not a big deal.

Dear friends,

    I found this free program is quite useful for me to embed the cd cover image into the mp3 song. AudioShell.

    You can then enable option  "use id3v2 covers" to display album cover using foo_toaster (and I assume you have downloaded id3lib.dll to foobar2000 program directory).

    However, this free utility seems like do not support multiple file embeding, what a pity.

@war59312: Thats expected behaviour and won't be fixed.

@XQC: I have looked into the 'always on bottom' thing a couple times. Its not that easy to implement under Windows, but it is something I will try put in if I ever get working reliably.

Hmm, would it involve much effort to make this work without gdiplus.dll? I don't need this DLL for any other piece of software on my win2k system, so its kinda overkill having this giant DLL installed just for a small plugin.
