HTPC Fullscreen panels II Reply #125 – 2013-08-04 19:03:04 It's been a while since I've posted in here, but thought I'd share what I've been working on. I hadn't made a lot of changes until recently when I started adding new things. I have no idea if anyone would want this stuff, but even if they don't, it ought to give people some ideas. I obviously started with Ojdo's great WSHtpc04 theme, and then went crazy. The bones are the same, but I changed just about everything in it, and added a crap ton. Hopefully ojdo won't mind the thread highjack, but this thread needs a bumping to the top anyway.Here's kind of the basic standard look now: ). This is an EP, and it's noted as such in the tag grid (anything other than Album is listed there). I should also explain what the divider is between the artist name and the rest of the tags. I wanted a way to display information about dates added, first and last played without just throwing a bunch of dates at you. The bar is a visualization, and the left side is essentially the date it was added, and the right side is today's date. The first color is the amount of days between added and first played, the middle light colored bar is from first played to last played, and the last bar is from last played to today's date. If the song has never been played, it shows three evenly spaced bars, like it does in this image.I wanted all of the easy to change settings to be persistent, have defaults and be changeable without editing the script. I added a settings menu which allows all of these to be edited. As you can see, I have images for the various codecs. Since almost all of the music on my computer is in mp3, I have the option set to not display the codec for mp3s. In the tag grid on the left I also show the number of channels (and what channels they are!) for any source with more than 2 channels. I have translation tags for songs/albums which have foreign names. The contents of those tags appear in brackets. As you can see, the long song name, plus the translation is REALLY long, and thus the fonts for the song title on the bottom adjust to fit. The song title at the top on the left, also goes through three different font sizes to see if the entire name will fit in as large a font as possible. It will only use two lines at maximum though. The tag grid will adjust to show the full album name no matter what.The theme is super image intensive as you can tell, which makes sharing it a little difficult (particularly since you need the HDLogos and Record Label images on your computer). If anyone is interested, I'll figure something out (possible using a shared folder on dropbox so that it'll stay synced up as new images get released).
