Yay finally! Gonna test it now! <3 Br3tt!

Edit: I keep getting a warning from Shpeck when I start Foobar:

Code: [Select]
Original Winamp or some other Winamp emulator has been detected. This can result in wrongly reported data, nonfunctional plugins and other conflicts, be warned.

KAMELEON v1.0b released. some fixes ... (lastest foo_skip plugin too)

the bug cover display (bad scale in the CD Case) is maybe fixed because i can't reproduce it, but i've made a little change...

Here a bug!



My config:


It's OK if I set: kameleon_artistart_filename: artist.jpg


Hmmm... you show me the Cover pic bug and talk about artistart filename ???!!

so the problem is about covers :

kameleon_coverart_path      : default (=music folder) / specified path (i.e: C:/covers/) (be careful, specified path must close with a '/')
kameleon_coverart_filename   : i.e: folder.jpg / folder.* / %album%.jpg / etc ...

if nothing setted in Foo_exvar, it search for folder.jpg images in the music folder, is it your case ? does it happen with all covers CD or only some of them ?



I understand it!    
It is necessary to remove any extra spaces before and after the %artist%.jpg!    
After that, the picture shows a well

Very beatiful work, but i'd like to see you tackle a lighter/easier on the eye config instead. I admit it's very nice, but i can't see myself using that for my actual config. edit: through more white in there too for a change too : )

I use Discogs for my artist art, and then use %DISCOGS_ARTIST_ID%_1.jpg for my artist image. However, It doesnt show up

I have kameleon_artistart_path set to E:/foobar2000/images/Artist/, and kameleon_artistart_filename to %DISCOGS_ARTIST_ID%_1.jpg.

This should work I guess?

foo-exvar do not handle variables like %var%, except %artist%, %album%, %album artist% be cause i have tweaked the code in K to handle them.

so all other %% can't work without some coding ... Same for all titleformat functions (like $replace(...) for example), they are not supported by foo_exvar.

i'll add this info in the INSTALLATION NOTES. (done)

the more white it can be is to use a full white wallpaper as background :

What i mean is that maybe you should try something different. Too much stuff, bells and whistles. I suppose you'll say 1) i do it for my personal needs or 2) If you don't like it don't use.  But the thing is that not many "waste" so much time to give configs to the community so maybe you could experiment with something else. Maybe a Pimp my Foobar kind of thing. I'll be the first to submit : D http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/3366/clipboard01gx0.jpg

Don't mean to sound like an ungrateful asshole, keep doing what you like most : )

these components are new versions:
foo_run
foo_lastfm_radio
foo_uie_lyrics

why the required components are not foo_audioscrobbler?
foo_lastfm_radio meaningless without foo_audioscrobbler

and please, delete foo_playback_custom (automatic editing tags and corrupted hash files of torrents and dc++)

Hey Guys.
Thank You Br3tt for this theme:) it's great but it's slow as hell on my pc.
Any help??

Hmm... Now it's working ok for cuple of minutes and then it slows down. You can see that when you try to switch between different panels ect..

Really great work Falstaff 

I specially like how easy it is, to adapt the config, to my needs, that's quite an achievement with Panel Stack Splitter.

Happens still here, but also not reproducable. (v0.9.6.3 beta 1 with kameleon 1.0b fully installed)

First of all - another great config  Thanks for great work

Nevertheless I've got a few problems with Kameleon

1. CPU usage - over 60% sometimes (c2d@3.2Ghz so I don't think that hardware is the case). I've noticed it jumps so high only in two moments - when lyrics or now playing panel is active (even worse when both)

2. Playlist switcher should be in the left panel (wishlist:P), I'm using it a lot and it's somehow weird now

3. Chronoflow - viewing by playlists? (It's probably more for developer of chronoflow;))

Thanks for the great config! 

I have a question:

I want to set the cover file name like this:
If there is a file named %album%.jpg, then use that one, if not, use the file folder.jpg
Is it possible?

& I also receive this warning when start foobar: "Original Winamp or some other Winamp emulator has been detected. This can result in wrongly reported data, nonfunctional plugins and other conflicts, be warned." How to fix it?

Thanks in advanced

Thank you very much, Brett! Kameleon is really amazing.  Visually stunning, everything worked out in great detail. The new left, right and "now playing" panels are a big improvement (I didn't think that was even possible) over your last configs. 

Now some constructive criticism: 
In my opinion, Album List and Playlist Switcher could be implemented in a better way. Currently they open in a panel roughly 600x300 big. Ideally, this should be something like 300x600 because both AL and PS can have many rows and don't need too much space horizontally.
I suggest that the panel for AL and PS has the same size as the left panel and appears directly above it. This would be a nice combination of Ibiza (position) and Curacao/Kameleon (functionality). The buttons to show AL/PS could be moved to the right of the play/pause, etc buttons.
For my needs that would be perfect because when I browse playlists or AL, I am anyway more interested in what happens in ELPlaylist than the visuals of the left panel.

read post #28 above (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=69485&view=findpost&p=615358)

be sure that there is no gap in the variables values

I just found a little bug with foo_input_mslive.dll. Kameleon freezes when I open a mms stream, it worked fine with curacao. Probably some of the new code in ELPlaylist?

Sure, I read the whole thread before reporting. I have not even set a custom variable for the album art. About 50% of the time (it decides always when I start foobar) it works, 50% it doesn't. When I find a common property (probable of the resized cover image, I suppose) I will report.


----

Artistart issue: I just read the drawback of foo_exvar, that it is not capable of reflecting my artist art naming scheme for your theme:
Folder: $replace(%path%,%directoryname%\%filename_ext%,)
Filename: folder.jpg
Is there any chance you might include this (I hope often used) convention to store the artist image in the folder hierarchy one level above the album art?
