I added a disk art place holder option to my version of Georgia a while back because most of my albums don't have any art., but I used a slightly different approach.  Instead of having to enable or disable it, the place holder I select is always active, but only displays if no disk art is found.  The advantage to this approach is that it is automatic as I switch from one track to another..  If a track has disk art available, then it's displayed, otherwise the place holder is displayed.  This is just a personal preference and may not suit everyone, but I thought it worth mentioning since the subject came up.  However, the place holder art I found was not nearly as impressive as yours.  Thank you very much.

I'm also very impressed with your new artwork layout.  It offers almost all of the features of the full layout in a much more compact form and is very convenient.  And I didn't even have to change the theme colors to my liking.  I just use the new Reborn theme and let it select the appropriate colors.   You've really outdone yourself with this newest version.

Hi Martin!

Glad you like it =),
At first, I had exactly the same approach as yours, if no disc art found it will show the placeholder.
This makes of course sense, but the disadvantage is that you can't then switch to my placeholders IF an actual disc art exists.
So I made this option that it can also show the placeholder if users would like to switch between actual album disc art ( if it exists ) and my placeholders...

Well it's just two mouse clicks to change =)

Incredible theme !!! I have a problem reading the artwork. It's placed on the same folder as always as folder.jpg but unless I attach the picture it is not shown... maybe I am doing something wrong?
Many thanks in advance

Can you describe your case a bit more detailed? What do you mean unless I attach the picture?
The artwork should be always shown... Do you have only folder.jpg in your album folder or other pictures too?
If you have more pictures, what happens when you disable Options > Player controls > Cycle album artwork?

Edit: I forgot to mention, just in case, you need to play the album to load the album artwork, otherwise it's not loaded, but that should be obvious...
Also make sure that, the album cover is also shown as a small thumbnail in the playlist, if there is shown NO COVER, it will try to load the embedded artwork from the music file.
If there is no embedded artwork, it will show the placeholder ( music note )...

Great layout and theme!
I'd just about got everything the way I want it, and then - I have done something stupid. (Surely not?)
All the Tracknumbers are now showing just as 0. or 0.. in both Library and Playlist (yes, the 'View Sorts' are fine)
Anyone have any clues as to what I may have changed? Everything else is fine... Thanks!

Hmmm, seems you messed something up, never heard or encountered such case...
I know that you modify yourself the javascript files and/or configs, so in your case to debug
I would personally install a new portable foobar installation for testing ( just name it e.g foobar_testing )
Install the theme as usual, and then step by step I would replace your modified files one by one.
Replace one modified file, start foobar_testing and see if it's working. If it's working then the next file and so on.
Then you can debug which modified file is causing it. If it's not the javascript files, I would then do the same for the config files etc.

Well, when I loaded it this morning. everything was back to normal. I have no idea how that happened - or why - but thanks for the response

Your new logos are really cool, but they're only displayed briefly at startup.  I added the logo to the stop screen and it looks great.  It may not be something you want to mess with, but I just thought I'd mention it.

I'm glad people like them, as a designer it's always important to communicate with people and get feedback/criticism to improve and know what others think. That's why I've made some polls here.

About the logos, yea I also had the same thoughts as you, like your thinking with the placeholders, but I decided to keep it this way because:
I didn't want to push the logo everywhere displayed, to be more discrete and not too much pushy/annoying. I know that you're using the option NOT to display the playlist on startup which would look great centered.
But I am using ( and maybe most people ) playlist on startup ( default ) and the logo centered would be cut in half which would look bad and also if the logo would be where the album art is loaded on the blank left side
it would look also weird ;).

I think it's enough that it's displayed on startup or if you change/reload themes...
But of course it's the users choice, you can do anything you want with this theme.

Guys,

I have found and fixed the issue for the Reborn color refresh,
the poll "How fast does the new Reborn theme change its colors when playing a new album?" has become irrelevant now...
This happens only IF your ONE active playlist has a ridiculous amount of tracks ( 30.000 or more ), the more tracks
one playlist contains, the worse the performance. With the fix, it doesn't matter how much tracks ONE playlist has...
There will be a huge overall performance boost and the fix will be available in the first public release...

If you can't wait, check and follow in the upcoming days the commits on Georgia-ReBORN's Github page
and download the master when it's published, need to do some more testing though.

This is all looking and working great. Again, thanks.
Two things:
1 - Is it possible for me to remove the "Georgia-ReBORN V..." title from the main page? I get why it might be there, and that it disappears when a song is playing, but I don't really need to see it. (I've removed the "Foobar.." line from the other side OK, but can't find this one.)
2 - With Lyrics, when songs from a radio station are playing, it immediately jumps to the end and just shows the last few lines. When I've used the Lyrics 3 module previously, it showed radio station lyrics from the start, and also had the option to scroll down. That seems to have gone, too.
Any thoughts?
Many thanks

1. You can remove it in settings.js current line 293 as of now, replace the value of stoppedTime with blank:
Code: [Select]
// TEXT FIELDS
var stoppedTime = '';


2. I guess, that's because Lyric Show 3 Panel has the option prefer synced lyrics as default.
Obviously ( I think ) that's not working because it's a stream and there is no playback time, so fetched synced lyrics have no way to read correctly the timestamps.
If you listen to radio, I would change the option in Preferences > Tools > Lyric Show 3 > Search for this type of lyric > Prefer non-synced.
If that's not working, it's currently not supported...

Sorted the text bit.
Lyrics was already set to 'only non-synced'. Changed to 'prefer non-synced', but no change. Can't see any options for scrolling, so looks like a non-starter for now. Thanks for the response.

You can install components like foo_vst or George Yohng's VST wrapper and install third party VST plugins.

Sometimes the VST plugins don't work perfectly because these components are old, but many of them work ( like DR Meter )...
The VST plugins will be displayed in a new window. This theme is one full SMP, so it's not possible ( without heavily coding )
to directly integrate them in the theme...

Thanks for this new update TT! You did an amazing work again, every new update polishes and refines the details, for me this new version is a little faster when starting (at least on my PC). The new CD Art feature is fantastic too!

btw. i did my own Splatter Vinyl version  :-[

Great work Azemoth!
Really like how you did your own custom placeholder and with including the logo  8)
Btw, you could change the disc art redraw speed to 75ms for a smooth disc rotation.

Excellent. In haven't tried placeholders yet. I shall now!

Guys,

once again I have great news for you.
This is an important commit I've just released on Github:

Huge performance boost:

- Especially when one active playlist has a ridiculous amount of tracks
- When using the Reborn theme
- When player size has changed
- When switching through panels
- When playlist is being displayed
- When using the playlist scrollbar with auto-hide feature

As usual you can download it here but you don't need to make a new foobar install, IF you already installed the last big update, just overwrite all your existing files.

Your foobar using this theme should be super fast now, even if you have 100.000+ tracks in ONE playlist.
This means, now ONLY on foobar startup it takes time -> theme loading determined how much tracks your active playlist contains.

Please leave your feedback after trying out, thanks!

-TT

P.S Thanks @Takaji for debugging

Hi TT, Thanks for another update!
I have done an fresh installation from 0, but I have a small bug.

I'm playing a song/album and I'm in the "Details" tab, when I switch to "Library" tab to look at the playlists the song is playing but the "play" icon is in another song or the previous one



Is this from my side or some small bug?

Edit. this happens when finishes a song and starts a new one
Edit 2. even the playing time is not correct
