Hello Thanks for your reply.
I had no idea about portable installs, I need to do this more often.
Currently my main Foobar is installed in :
C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000

Where do you recommend I install this portable version?
Should I make a portable directory and install all future software installations there?
Or do you install it on a USB stick and just run the executable on Desktop / laptop. etc?

thx in advance

Hi fynxgloire,

You can install it really where you want. For example, on the desktop and then you can move your whole foobar folder where you want.
You can put it on another partition or on an usb-stick. I have all my portable apps on my work partition. Also if you want you can rename
the foobar folder to e.g foobar_Georgia-ReBORN.

^ As the instructions state, just make a portable install of foobar in a new folder (select "portable" when installer asks). You can have several portable installs at once to try out different themes, they do not interfere with each other, so your current install (whether standard or portable) would not be touched. You can even run both at the same time.

(Then add your music folder in Preferences > Media Library as usual. You can also export / import your Library > Playback Statistics if using that component)

Thanks for your info.
What does step 4 mean, how can I do it?
4. Install all located fonts from your foobar2000/profile/georgia/fonts folder.

Also, how can I use my playlists? I have many playlists, does this version support my playlists?


Thx in advance

It means after you have extracted the profile folder from the zip into your foobar2000 root,
you copy all fonts from your foobar2000\profile\georgia\fonts\Windows Fonts ( or if you're using a Linux then the Linux fonts ) folder to your
C:\Windows\Fonts directory.

Yes that's no problem, after you successfully installed the theme, right click on the empty playlist and
select Playlist manager or just hit Ctrl+M. The Playlist manager window will pop up, just select all your
playlist files and drag it to the window.

You can then switch through the playlists if you mouse hover to the top of the playlist panel and click on the text
or you can also switch through the playlist manager window.

Hello,
I just installed this theme yesterday and have been playing around with it.
I did find a bug (?)
I have over 200 music files in each of my playlists. 
At the time when I play a song from my playlist, I click on the Biography button, then I click back to Lyrics.
After about 10 songs  of repeating the above steps, when it goes back to the lyrics, the playlist has scrolled up to the top, or half way up.
So now I cannot see what song is playing and I have to scroll all the way back down to the song that is currently playing.
Doing this over 200 times for each of my over 100 playlists will get old and tiring.
Why can't the program keep the playlist synced onto the song it is currently playing?

I can't reproduce your issue, can you tell me exactly step by step how you do it?

If you switch through your playlists, other album will show up from these playlists.
The currently playing album is still playing from the playlist where you added the album to.

Btw, you can always right click on the playlist and select "Show now playing".
This will also return to the playlist where the song is currently playing...

Sure,
first of all do not change playlists. All you have to do is:
1. load a playlist of 200+ songs
2. play the song
3. click next song
Repeat 2 and 3 about 10 times so you get to song number 10+ on the playlist
3. click on ANY button ( biography, Detail, etc. )
4. click on Lyrics
RESULT:
The scroll bar scrolls back to the top of the playlist.
So now I have to scroll back down to the song that is being played.

Then I click on next song. I clock on Lyric, then biography, then back to lyric, boom, the scroll bar scroll back all the way to the top of the playlist.
Can you reproduce it?

If you want I can take pics and post them here

No, I still can't reproduce it... Can anyone else confirm this issue?

1. Can you install another new fresh portable foobar installation.
2. Don't import your existing playlists, select many albums and drag it into the new playlist.
3. See if the issue still occurs.

If that doesn't help, you need to show it to me:

1. Start foobar, visit https://recordscreen.io .
2. Click on the Record! -> Start Recording, now click on the Window tab and have your foobar player active.
3. You will see in the Window tab your foobar player, select it and click on the Share button. Now record your issue!
4. When you're done, click on the Stop recording button or at the bottom of your browser the Stop sharing button.
5. Download the video and upload it to a web space provider. ( e.g https://www.upload.ee )
6. Send me the link to the video via private message.

Thanks

Come on man, do you call yourself a developer?
Of course it works for you, SINCE YOU ALREADY DOWNLOADED ALL THE LYRICS AND BIOGRAPHIES FOR YOUR SONGS.
I have not yet, hence why it happens to me.
Delete all of your lyrics and biography for every single one of your songs and make sure foobar DOWNLOADS THEM while you are clicking on biography and lyrics while playing.
While it is downloading them that is when this mishap happens.

This problem does not happen to me for my plalylist of songs that I already went through and downloaded every ;lyric and biography for.....

I guess I have to deal with it until I play and download every single biography and lyrics for all of my songs, then it will work fine and dandy...

Re: Georgia-ReBORN - A Clean foobar2000 Theme

fynxgloire,

you're a funny guy, seriously.

First of all I have never said that I'm a developer, quite the opposite, read this second post of this thread here:
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=121047.msg998281#msg998281

Second, your instructions were not clear/correct and there really was no bug at all.
It has nothing to do with downloading lyrics or biography. After enough confusion with your incorrect instructions,
I have found out by myself what you've meant. You should have written, that your so called "bug" occurs only when you've used
the 'Next' transport control button in the lowerbar/playbar.

This of course will play next songs and now playing songs will travel further down the playlist,
but your selected song is still marked where you've started to click on the 'Next' transport control button.
That means your selection is still up, then when you switch through the panels it will scroll to the
selected song, not the currently playing song! This is no bug, that's why there is the feature to select songs...

I have implemented a new feature that will exactly do what you want, scroll to the currently playing song,
on all panels. You can find this new feature in the top menu under Options -> Playlist -> Always scroll to current playing song.
This is disabled by default, because not all users want to use this feature where it's scrolling to the current playing song all the time.

You can download the latest commit from the Github page here
.
After you've downloaded the zip, you need to overwrite all your existing files in your foobar and then activate the feature.

 
By the way, you should work on your attitude and be more grateful when other users and developers are offering
something that's completely free of charge.

Hello TT and many thanks for this great theme.
I have a question about the Record label logos. When I choose the white theme, the logos (without background) also become white and its very hard to see them. Is it possible to change the label logos to black with the white theme selected?

Thank you

Re: Georgia-ReBORN - A Clean foobar2000 Theme

Reply #61
Hi souomaior,

by default the label logos should not be displayed on the theme background.
Did you perhaps activated the option 'Show label art on background' ?

You can find the option in the top menu:
Options -> Details -> Show label art on background ( should be unchecked ).

-TT


Re: Georgia-ReBORN - A Clean foobar2000 Theme

Reply #62
That option is unchecked. I have no background on label art.
What I'm saying is that even with that option disabled the logos are white color, when I choose the white theme.
It would be better if the logos would change to black on the white theme (with the label art background option unchecked).
I know that on MordredKLB original theme, the logos color changed to black when choosing the light theme.

I have not changed anything in the code for inverted label logos,
Can you tell me on which bright album this occurs?

Thanks

Re: Georgia-ReBORN - A Clean foobar2000 Theme

Reply #64
It's not on bright albums. It's on every album that has a record label logo, when the white theme is selected the logos become white also, which makes it difficult the visibility.

I'll give you an example. Imagine that I have the black theme selected, the label logo becomes white (that's perfect). But if I select the white theme, the label logo remains white (and this is always without the label art background).

Hope I have explained well. Thank you

Well I have added a new option to manually change the band and label logos to black.
It is disabled by default, because for me the white logos are looking good, it doesn't matter
which theme color is present, what matters is the picked color ( algorithm ) from the album.

You can find the new option in the top menu:
Options -> Details -> Invert band and label logos to black

You need to download the latest master.zip and overwrite your existing files in your foobar.

Cheers

Option "Rotate disc art as tracks change" is enabled but doesn't work, this is a bug or maybe there's any wrong with my config?

Btw, I see you have a custom player size, you can always use the predefined player sizes ( Options -> Player size -> Normal or Large )
so that you have enough space in the info grid for the band logo and that the artwork cover will be the same height as the playlist.
If you use a custom player size, you need manually adjust the player size by dragging to be proportional...
