See here, but you can't use the red color like this. The theme itself manages the colors via javascript.


Seems I need to change font as all it shows is a square block instead of 🅴 ... if I change it to E then it shows up

Try and change the 🅴 to unicode '\u1F174' in your pattern. If it does not work, the font does not support it.

Tried changing it but to no avail unfortunately

This is such an incredibly useful and helpful program... ...when it works. And then sometimes it doesn't work, and it makes me wonder if I'm just doing something completely wrong.

Take this, for example:

I'm searching for cover art that I know exists on Discogs. How do I know it exists on Discogs? Well, when I type "Sun Jamming" into the Discogs search bar, I get:

But Album Art Downloader just finds some bizarrely-irrelevant album by a band called Happy Flowers, which doesn't even include a song called "Sun Jamming" or anything like that. I mean, the theme of the words themselves is on-point - sun jamming, flowers, surf music, happy hippies, sure, all fits in the same spray-painted VW Bus. But as a Boolean search, maybe not so much.

It also fails to return images on eBay or Amazon that both exist (though to be fair, the Amazon one only pops up on a Google Images search, not a direct search). See here and here for screenshots, if necessary. Neither of these show up in Album Art Downloader.

Is there something I can tweak on my end to either return more than one result from Discogs, or, failing that, to at least ensure that when I'm searching for "Sun Jamming", AAD actually sends the words "Sun" and "Jamming" to Discogs and returns the first result?

So I went into the Live Editor, right clicked and hit remove. Now nothing is showing but a white screen and I don't know how to revert without reinstalling.

Before you do anything and to be on the safe side, make a backup of your existing profile folder.

After that, from the Georgia-ReBORN zip file, try to copy and replace the configuration folder from the profile folder.
If it does not work, you need to replace the whole profile folder. Start foobar.

I love that someone is still developing a Milkdrop based app, but what I'm missing from Milkdrop are all the configuration settings, and the ability to manage your own presets. Are these functions likely to be added to ProjectM in future?

Would be better to do a complete port of Milkdrop to DX11/Vulkan/OGL4.

Such ports for OGLESv2/GL4 already exist. 64bit is another matter entirely, since the script parser VM would need to be completely rewritten. It extensively uses x86 assembly in the JIT and that would need to be completely regutted.

Playlist Organizer (Jscript Panel 3)

Version change:
I followed Marc advice :
- If the playlist lock prevents renaming, then the rename menu will be greyed out
- If the playlist lock prevents deleting, then the delete menu will be greyed out
- If the playlist lock prevents adding new songs, then the drag&drop mouse pointer will show it is not permitted.

Again, @marc2k3  : Thanks !

foobar2000 mobile / Editing metadata for genres and composers
Last post by TomH1138 -
Sorry, but I have another question...

I have a small handful of songs currently on my phone while I'm testing out Foobar2000, and I want to edit the genres on a lot of them. Some read "Christian" while others read "Christian & Gospel"; obviously this should be all one category. The Star Wars music that reads as "Film" is understandable, but I would rather change it to the more descriptive "Soundtrack." Then I have a handful of classic rock songs that Foobar2000 can't identify and so labels them as (Unknown Genre).

There doesn't seem to be a way to edit it in the mobile version itself; the program seems to only report the information that's already there. The wrench icon points to a place where I can choose the playback order, change the location of the folder that it looks in, etc., but there doesn't seem to be a place to edit this information.

I found a way to edit the genre by right-clicking the files, choosing "Properties," and then changing the genre under the "Details" tab .... but that's all under the hard drive. When I use File Explorer on the songs directly on the phone, "Details" doesn't allow me that level of editing.

I also can't find where to edit composers vs. conductors and other artists. Again using my Star Wars music as an example, I have an "Empire Strikes Back" album officially done by Williams himself, and I also have another version of the album by conductor Charles Gerhardt. The metadata keeps defaulting to Williams as the performer, and treats both albums as though they're the exact same recording.

Plugging in my phone automatically pops up Windows Media Player, so I tried syncing the data that way, but WMP freaks out looking at the content on my phone, providing even fewer details about album name, artist, etc., and quadruplicating tracks that are actually only on my phone once.

Is there something I'm missing? Do I need to have the desktop version of Foobar2000 to edit and to act in sync with the mobile version?

I'm really enjoying the app so far; just a few more growing pains I'm trying to get through in terms of learning to use this. Thanks (again) in advance!
