Two clicks should switch between Images(with cover) ~  biography. Because we do not always want to see the biography. Question of lack of space too..

Existing users: If updating from v0.8.5.1 or v0.8.5.2, you just need to install v0.9. If updating from v0.8 to v0.8.5, to retain settings, install 0.8.5.2 first and before updating JScript Panel to v2+.

Hello WilB!

I get this error when trying to install JScript panel 2.0.1+
https://frupic.frubar.net/shots/36392.jpg
JScript panel 1.3.2.2 and JScript Biography 0.8.5.2  works just fine.
Using foobar2000 v1.3.17

More info:
Also tried "DarkOne v4.0 - Tedgo - JScript Biography Version (0.9.01) - Modified by WilB.fcl"
and get this error:
https://frupic.frubar.net/shots/36393.png

What can I do?

JScript Panel 2 requires foobar2000 1.4 (currently beta) and above.
Title: Re: Biography
Post by: kode54 on 2018-01-29 00:18:11
How did you force that? Just so anyone knows, the current SDK defaults to only requiring 1.3 or newer.
Title: Re: Biography
Post by: WilB on 2018-01-29 00:46:55
JScript panel is used to run it, and that now requires foobar2000 1.4. You would need to get an answer from marc2k3 (https://github.com/marc2k3/foo_jscript_panel/releases) as to how and why he did it, as JScript panel is his plug-in.
Title: Re: Biography
Post by: Jailhouse on 2018-01-29 03:11:04
How did you force that?
It's in marc2k3's changelog. I believe he did it because he's making a lot of breaking changes.

OK, that explains it. I'll probably wait for a stable realease of foobar2000.

DarkOne v4.0 only works with JScript Panel 1.3.0+
All Scripts have to be updated for newer JScript Panel Versions. But I have nothing heard from Tedgo for about a year...

Do you mean DarkOne v4.0 won't work with foobar2000 1.4 and JScript Panel 2 and WilB JScript Biography 0.9.0.1?

Sorry, meant DarkOne4Mod. It uses JScript Panel for several UI Elements. But the Scripts were not actualized for a long time
The older v4 uses WSH Panel Mod for those UI Elements.  JScript Biography 0.9.0.1 seems to work.

Ok, great! Thanks for the clarification! Got a bit worried 'cause I just love DarkOne v4!

Hi...
is it possible to auto cylce artist bio und pics only for the current track (feat. Artist or the Solist, Orchestra etc.)  and not between similar artist???
Thanks!
LG Frank
Title: Re: Biography
Post by: WilB on 2018-03-02 13:45:17
Right click > sources > server settings. Opens biography.ini. Set the number of similar artists to display to 0 as shown below:

[ADVANCED: MORE MENU ITEMS]
...
...
Similar Artists: Number to Display(0-10)=0

Save biography.ini & restart foobar2000.

It should then auto-cycle bios and pics for tag items of the current track; e.g. artist, composer and performer, including items in multi-value fields, etc.

HTH

Hello everybody,
I have the following problem. I like to use the biography view. Works also wonderful. I work with the portable version. However, if I copy the entire Foobar folder to another directory, e.g. from the external USB disk to a local directory under C: \, the artist images are neither downloaded nor displayed. Also I have in the security settings for this directory set to "everyone". Without success. The biography text works. Deleting the .ini-file no change.
Has anyone ever watched?
Many Thanks
Greetings Frank

Post by: WilB on 2018-03-27 13:03:38
I couldn't actually reproduce the issue. I copied a portable install from external USB to "C:\" and it all worked. Images were in the default location. It wasn't clear what your original image location was, whether they were copied & the nature of the new location etc. With default ini settings, save paths are automatically relative to install location.

All I can currently think of is that it's a hangover from this issue (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,112914.msg952424.html#msg952424) that specifically effected image downloading and is easily correctable. Essentially, the utils.WriteTextFile in early releases of the JScript panel v2 series resulted in a corrupt "foo_lastfm_img.vbs" file that wouldn't save images. Try following steps 1-4 in the post. Essentially ensure Biography version 0.9.0.2 is being used. Navigate to foobar2000\yttm\foo_lastfm_img.vbs and delete the corrupt "foo_lastfm_img.vbs". Restart foobar2000. A new functional "foo_lastfm_img.vbs" should be created. You may need to use sources > force update to show images (i.e. if you've artists folders with just update.txt & no pictures).

I'm sorry, it was my mistake.
I did not copy the folder yttm because so many files were inside.
That was the cause.
