Many thanks for the effort!
Unfortunately Foobar freezes and doesn't even make a crash report when I can get it to close (on Win10 x64 on v0.0.230).
Any hints on what I can do to make it run?

Your entire theme is dark, are you using dark mode?

Nope, It is custom colors set in winecfg. Don't know why, but with the previews, the dark theme doesn't work in foobar.

Thank you @Dfaure.
  • I'll look into the preset loader rendering. It was working fine for me and could navigate the whole directory tree up/down--scary enough that I put a limiter so it can't easily jump out the foobar2000 profile directory. I'll try hard to make it look bad so that I can fix it.
  • Not exactly, the song title field comes from the metadata and simply grabbing "%title%". Am I understanding correctly that what you want is to be able to customize that into say any arbitrary metadata display? Complex stuff like these or something else?
    Code: [Select]
    [%album artist% - ]['['%album%[ CD%discnumber%][ #%tracknumber%]']' ]%title%[ '//' %track artist%]
    %codec% | %bitrate% kbps | %__bitspersample% bit$ifequal(%__bitspersample%,1,,s) | %samplerate% Hz | $caps(%channels%) | %playback_time%[ / %length%]
    May be a nice addition to the preferences.
  • Do you mean the 3D flying animated song title that is in the DirectX 9 version? If so, I haven't ported that yet and forgot to grey out that and the custom messages which are definitely works-in-progres.
  • Unless you're changing the advanced preferences the changes should take without restarting on the next frame render. Some might be unstable if changed during running. If I'm not mistaken Winamp makes you stop the visualization to launch the configuration window. (BTW, have not found how foobar2000 lets components know changes have been applied in advanced prefs).
  • The frame rate runs off the Win32 timer, you're seeing basically the limit of how fast that can pump messages into the window. I don't think it'll run in single-digit milliseconds. If the limiter is faster, it will not be the limiting factor. I'm looking into migrating to the threadpool timer, a timer queue or (my preference) the StepTimer that uses QFC directly. Just be careful to not burn out your GPU.

Thanks for the feedback.
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: [fb2k v2] Playlist Attributes (foo_playlist_attributes)
Last post by anamorphic -
Actually it is a serious bug and I'm wondering why it was not detected earlier
I mean ... it sounds pretty similar to what I reported in 2019 that never had a reply. Incidentally I just tested and that issue (whether the same one or not) remains in the current version - switch playlist, start playback by play button = previous DSP, start playback by double-click in playlist = correct DSP. It was introduced in v0.5.5.

I make a backup and after exporting the statistics I reset all files and wipe out the scrobbles.

20 Jun now have half the time listened. It is not the 20 Jun but is the data of 20 May.

The problem seems to be my database.
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / NSF with M3U broken in foo_input_gme
Last post by dongjuanyong -
When I updated foobar2k to 2.x with the foo_input_gme component version 0.5.1, I found it just ignored the .m3u in the same folder of .nsf. Thus I lost all the tags of .nsf.
I didn't find any configurations in the Preferences: Advanced to deal with this. Is it that the settings just go somewhere else or the function just has not been implemented?

Tested v0.0.230-alpha with a subset of Geiss's favorite presets & textures extracted into milkdrop2/presets and milkdop2/textures directories and can confirm this works as expected! Whatever the code quality, you really did a nice job.

I just noticed few hints that could be nice to improve/fix:
  • The preset loader is rather broken when invoked with the help opened
  • The song title seem to come straightly from the playlist. I would love to get an evaluated one in the mood of the Window title for example, in order to get the details from streams
  • The title animation at song change doesn't seem to work
  • Changing basic component parameters while it is working doesn't seem to make it crash most of the time, but the changes often require a foobar restart to be applied
  • The framerate limiter doesn't seem to work above 40 fps which seem the highest I could get

All brand new, remove panels, close program, delete js_data, xxx-scripts folder. Download new set of zips.

Add a buttons panel, add the buttons and uncheck themed buttons.
