thanx - but it seems not to be easy...
I just want a new tranparent backgrond window for instrumentation, like the one for lyrics or artist-cover and information.

No, it's very easy. You have to replace the origin script and only modify it to your needs.

I took a look at the posts above regarding using wildcards for JPG album art, but each time I add the below code, the entire theme goes black!

Code: [Select]
$puts(cover.path,$findfile($replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,*.jpg)))

I am trying to add the above code to the large album art splitter in Curacao Tweaked, which uses this code:

Hmmmm, works perfectly for me.

But it didn't work for the Album GB.

Sorry that I couldn't help you.


I'm sorry - you are correct... I didn't realize I should have just replaced the entire thing - thanks... working great now... sorry for the dumb response.

sorry, i was wrong.
$findfile works different from what i thought

this code should do it:
Code: [Select]
$puts(cover.path,$findfile($replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,*.jpg)

it searches your folder for any jpg files and shows you the first found.

thanx for the tips on $findfile()

btw, the right syntax for your example is :

Code: [Select]
$puts(cover.path,$findfile($replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,*.jpg)))


Thanks, guys! You were quicker to give the working solution faster than I managed to get back to forum. This works for album art in the top left panel!

I had this in the code:
Code: [Select]
$puts(cover.path,$findfile($replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,folder.jpg)))


And I changed it to as follows:
Code: [Select]
$puts(cover.path,$findfile($replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,folder.jpg)))
$puts(cover.path,$findfile($replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,back.jpg)))

//$puts(cover.path,$directory_path(%path%)\folder.jpg)
//$puts(artist.path,'C:/Program Files (x86)/foobar2000/artist/'%artist%'.jpg')


This works! This code displays folder.jpg in the album frame and places back.jpg as a background for the playlist when playing this album.

However, what if there's no folder.jpg in the album folder?
Could you please help me realize how would I implement the following scheme:

Code: [Select]
If(folder.jpg) //if folder.jpg file is found in the folder
{ display // display this folder.jpg
    elseif cover.jpg //else if cover.jpg is found in the folder
        display cover.jpg //display that cover.jpg
    else //neither folder.jpg nor cover.jpg is found
        display *.jpg //display the first one found
}
   

Also, the
Code: [Select]
$puts(cover.path,$findfile($replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,folder.jpg)))

line does NOT WORK for the ALB panel at the bottom.
The ALB panel now has the following script lines

Code: [Select]
$puts(cover.path,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,folder.jpg))
$puts(artist.path,'C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\artist\'%artist%'.jpg')


I commented them out and changed them the same way I did it for album cover:

Code: [Select]
//$puts(cover.path,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,folder.jpg))
//$puts(artist.path,'C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\artist\'%artist%'.jpg')

$puts(cover.path,$findfile($replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,folder.jpg)))


However, the ALB panel keeps displaying standard nocover.png as the cover for all the album icons!
How do I make the icons show the album cover based on the folder.jpg found in the played folder? Or cover.jpg, or any other found .jpg file?

Thank you all for helping! You make my day.

Great - the album art panel is working great now - thanks for your help!

One more question - how can I get ELPlaylist to always play the song after the currently playing song in the playlist, rather than playing what is currently selected/highlighted? For example, if I am playing the first track in a playlist of 50 tracks, then add 10 songs to this playlist via Windows Explorer, those 10 new tracks will be highlighted and will start playing after the first track is finished playing. How can I tell ELPlaylist/Foobar to simply play tracks in order, regardless of what track is selected in the playlist (so if Foobar is playing Track 1, and Track 51 is highlighted in ELPlaylist, it will play Track 2 once Track 1 finishes playing)? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

uncheck the option Playback follows Cursor

Reply #484
this has nothing to do with el_playlist.
I don't have foobar on the pc i am using right now, but i think this option is to be found under main menu > playback
here you have those 2 options- playback follows cursor ans cursor follows playback.

edit: too slow... :-(

Hi everybody

First of all, thank you Falstaff for this damn fine config

Secondly, I have a small problem. If I understand this code correctly:

Code: [Select]
// ====================================================
// ---> Background cover display
// ====================================================
$puts(bg_image_alpha,140)

$if($isvisible_c(_DEFAULT_WALLPAPER),
      $puts(bg.path,$get(wallpaper))
      $imageabs(0,0,1152,864,$get(wallpaper),nodisplay,,)
      $puts(ratio,$div($mul($getimagewidth($get(wallpaper)),10),$getimageheight($get(wallpaper))))
,
  $if(%ps_isplaying%,
//    ---> artist ratio
      $imageabs(0,0,,,$get(artist.path),nodisplay,,)
      $puts(ratio,$div($mul($getimagewidth($get(artist.path)),10),$getimageheight($get(artist.path))))
      $puts(ratio.a,$get(ratio))
//    ---> album ratio
      $ifequal($get(ratio),0,
         $imageabs(0,0,,,$get(cover.path),nodisplay,,)
         $puts(ratio,$div($mul($getimagewidth($get(cover.path)),10),$getimageheight($get(cover.path))))
         $puts(ratio.b,$get(ratio))
         $ifequal($get(ratio),0,
             $puts(bg.path,$get(wallpaper))
             $imageabs(0,0,1152,864,$get(wallpaper),nodisplay,,)
             $puts(ratio,$div($mul($getimagewidth($get(wallpaper)),10),$getimageheight($get(wallpaper))))
        ,
             $puts(bg.path,$get(cover.path))
        )
      ,
          $puts(bg.path,$get(artist.path))
      )
  ,
      $puts(bg.path,$get(wallpaper))
      $imageabs(0,0,1152,864,$get(wallpaper),nodisplay,,)
      $puts(ratio,$div($mul($getimagewidth($get(wallpaper)),10),$getimageheight($get(wallpaper))))
  )
)



then the first background image is artist, if there is no artist image, than cover and than the wallpaper.

Now, artist and cover background work fine, but if there is no cover or artist picture, like for example while listening to radio, the background stays black.  Any solution for this?

Preset default:
Right-click on playlist --> Settings --> grouping tab --> "sort format"

Other sort formats:
Right-click on playlist --> Settings --> misc tab --> "additional sort format for context menu"

So having another strange issue - not sure if it has anything to do with Curacao, but thought I would bring it up since you all have been so helpful...

Since switching to Curacao, my Last.fm scrobbler plugin hasn't been consistently working. It does not scrobble tracks, and when I open the Last.fm application, the "Now Playing" option is grayed out, even though a track is playing in Foobar. I have the latest version of Last.fm (1.5.2.38918) as well as the latest version of audioscrobbler (2.3.1). It looks like it scrobbled a few tracks about 3 or 4 days ago, and hasn't worked since. When I first open Foobar, the Last.fm tray app also opens, so they are cooperating somewhat... just that the scrobbling isn't happening... the playing track in Foobar does not show up in the Last.fm app.

Anyone have any ideas on this one? Thanks for any help you can give me!

You could check out the logs in Help -> Diagnostics in the Last.FM software. Although I think that going to Extras -> Download Plugins is the route that will most likely lead to success.

Yes I tried using Tools > Get Plugin to re-download/install the plugin which worked fine but still didn't fix the issue... I also tried uninstalling/reinstalling Last.fm & the plugin to no effect either (I also renamed the "Last.fm" local profile folder under C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\)... Thanks for the tip about Help > Diagnostics... below is a recent bit of the Scrobbling log. The "Cached Tracks" window was completely empty/blank. It did say that my Last Successful Connection was just now, although not sure if that is a successful connection to last.fm or to the Foobar scrobbling plugin. Here is some of the log (note that Foobar was playing tracks during this time) and there are some screenshots below:

If anyone has any ideas on how I can get Last.fm to scrobble my tracks again that would be great! Thanks again.

Hi Brett,

First of all, awesome skin. But I have a small problem with it in Windows 7, see attached screen.

Basically, the letters above the playlist are cut off half, and I dont see buttons to drop down the media library etc. Any idea how this can be solved?

I had to edit the splitter settings, and change the foo.path variable to the full path, instead of just './'. This fixed it.
