Yes, of course. everything is done according to the instructions


1. for the Chronflow problem, it is a chronflow issue, try to download the last available drivers for your graphic card, that might fix it... if not, try a post in the chronflow topic, thanx.

2. for your WSH display pb, it is because you haven't installed the font saxmono, maybe i've forgot it in my package ... you can easily find it on dafont.com
or change the line :
var g_font = gdi.Font(-9, weight_normal, italic_no, uline_no, "saxmono");

by replacing saxmono by another font ...

Hi there, first of all, thanks a lot Falstaff for your hard work, this is an excellent configuration.

My Album Art (folder.jpg) is displaying correctly for most of my albums except when it comes to multi-disc albums because i put each disc on separate folders, something like this:

%artist%\%date% - %album%\Disc %discnumber%\

How can I display the Album Art for those multi-disc albums without having to put the same picture (folder.jpg) in each "Disc N" folder?

Thanks in advance.


I still need help with this.

I don't use Kameleon, but I think it's similar to Curacao. You have to rewrite some code in ELP and PSS to go up the dir if there's no folder.jpg in the music folder.

So I would say you copy the pictures.



Edit: When will the final come, Br3tt? I'm waiting impatiently.

Thank you very much. Try it!

I have a small question. I noticed that with Kameleon the left panels like the lyrics panel, spectrum panel, albumart panel,....the transparency is different then that of the playlist. This is especially noticeable when using dark backgrounds. In curacao it was the same transparency for everything. Is there a way to make the transparency of the left panels match that of the playlist or vice versa.

Note I'm still on Kameleon 1.0 so I don't know if that changed with 1.1, I'm waiting for the final so I can mod that to my liking.

Is it possible to play an album when I double click the album in the ELP panel?

Hi,
Firstly, i greatly thank Br3tt for making such awesome skin    but i'm having some problems here. well, sorry for my bad english skills but i want to know how i can remove this "diagonal cross" from my wallpaper (somehow i see it looks quite bad in it  )
ex:

Become like this


edit: now i've got a new problem ...
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I already put all the tracks i need into a folder but the foobar doesn't accept it as a group but many "albums" as you can see. I tried many "sort..." ways but it has still divided the tracks into many "albums" and it's really hard to see, though there's still some albums my tracks are placed in a group. As you can see below:

=> Can anyone help me to solve these problems? ^^''

In your first picture there's a "?" at the artist line, so you have to tag the files with an artist.

I also think there's no album tag.

um, really thank for your advice but... is there a way to put them in one artist/artist at once?  Because it's quite hard to tag every files one by one and there're tons of them i need to do the same...

I did no batch tagging with foobar so far.

Are the filenames with artists?
Then select all > Properties > Automatically Fill Values /Source=File Names/ Pattern
eg. 01 - Britney Spears - I love you so > Pattern: %tracknumber% - %artist% - %title%

If filenames don't include artist you have to do this manually via freedb- or discogs-tagger or via Prperties Panel and typing the artist, afaik.

Foobar works best when all your music is properly tagged, artist and album tags are the bare minimum. You don't need to tag them one by one, just select all the songs from the same album at once and assign it an artist and album tag. Do that for all your music and it will look the way you want.

Thanks everyone every much!! 
Well, after doing as you guys told but now i'm facing a final problem here '' That is there's some albums but has a variety of artists (ex: a vocal collections album)=> the result is it devided into many albums but with the same image  the problem i want to solve is how to group them in same path folder so that they can still be an album but with many different artists (like the "folder structure" way in the library).

I'm terribly sorry that i have too much troubles, I also tried by google but it's hopeless (maybe because of my stupid key words).

Album Artist > Various Artist or eg DJ Bumba's Top 100 > Album Artist > DJ Bumba

You need some foobar basics - read the foobar wiki

Would it be possible to change the date display code to the following code in the Group Header of ELPlaylist?

Code: [Select]
$put(%_DATE_%,$left(%date%,4))

$ifequal($len($get(%_DATE_%)),4,
  $puts(nb1,$left($get(%_DATE_%),1))
  $puts(nb2,$left($right($get(%_DATE_%),3),1))
  $puts(nb3,$left($right($get(%_DATE_%),2),1))
  $puts(nb4,$right($get(%_DATE_%),1))


Reason I ask is I have my date in the format YYYY-MM-DD

The original code doesn't take this format into account.

Everywhere where you have %_DATE_%, replace it by $year(%_DATE_%)
Hope that helps

I updated to the latest beta version of foobar (0.9.6.4 I think?) and my images no longer load with the Kameleon skin. Ideas, anyone?

Edit: Weird, after checking settings for a bit, the layout suddenly "changed," and all the Kameleon images loaded. Not sure what happened, but it's fixed.

Great UI. Thank you so very much for this one!!!!

That said, what is the correct dimension/aspect ratio for artist pics and album covers? I was trying 500x390 for Artist but, its getting distorted. Anyone has a good suggestion about correct aspect ratio.

Thanks again

You are better off having all album art EXACTLY square (download as close as you can get then resize in PS or similar), I normally use 500x500 or 700x700, then they work perfectly in Chronflow and the CD Cases in Kameleon. Artist pics are the exact opposite, you really need them similar to your screen resolution, I tend to download artist wallpaper from fan sites which works perfectly, 1024x768 or similar ratio. I also put Artist.jpg in every single album folder which enables me to have a different artist background pic for each album if I choose, or just duplicate the same Artist.jpg into each folder

not possible, Kameleon doesn't distord pics ! it crops them if their ratio is different from the main window ratio, crop but keep them centered !

HTH

You are right. Refresh issue prolly. When I change the artist and come back to the newly updated artist again, the picture shows correct aspect ratio. I wonder how to use the cover art or different art in the background instead of default artist pci from the specified folder. Please let me know. I am clickinhg the foobar mask and getting the regular artist pic. It would be nice if I could get the coverart as BG or another pic. I understand the wallpaper option. Thanks.

... just read the doc , D/ 6.

there's no info about how to change %title% - %artist% to %title% 


normally %artist% added after the %title is %album artist% tag filled and different from the %artist% tag, or if there is no group header en your ELP.


BUT, it seem to be a bug and now i always fdisplay %artist%

i'll fix that asap.


Hey Br3tt, are you fixing this in the next release or are you able to upload a temporary .fcl in the meantime? Thanks


I've been scouring this thread hopefully looking for someone who didn't like this as well. I find it a tad bit annoying. Don't really need to see the %artist% after %title% unless it's various artists. Has anyone edited that out themselves, and if so, where?

Love the theme btw Falstaff
