Title: how to improve darkone4mod theme. help needed
Post by: porotikos on 2019-02-17 10:46:34
Hi guys. when it comes to foobar i am a noob. good in following instructions but still a noob.


Today, out of the blue, while foobar seemed to work, nothing was showing. no playback list, no waveform, no lyrics, nothing. if i pressed play, everything was playing, but it was invisible. was running darkone theme v4.

i googled a bit, i saw a new version called darkone4mod, and installed it. playlist appeared as everything else. new skin was fine but not as great as the default darkone skin in my opinion. so again i tried to reinstall darkone theme on top. no change. i am stuck with darkone4mod theme.

here it is how it looks

so, since i am stuck, id like to modify it a bit to my liking. it just needs a few touches, that i dont know how to do.

first of all, id like these awful looking boxes that say no cover, to be invisible, if no artwork can be found

would really appreciate any help in this. this is my main concern

secondly the grey area in the bottom, with the control buttons etc, id like it to look sharper. probably it needs a better analysis. and to be smaller in height perhaps. how can i do that?

and last, can i add an artist bio window in the bottom left, where i can choose lyrics etc?


thank you. i am assuming that all bit perfect settings etc were not messed upo, when i updated skin right? will have to checkl that all over again.

thanks guys

Just to help clarity, you are using a single individuals idea of how they want Foobar2000 to look and work.
The best place for support is with that person, wherever you may of downloaded it.

Foobar2000 has many settings that can be used and adjusted regarding sound. No one here has any idea what settings you have chosen to select. Though It is unlikely that simply loading a theme created by someone other than yourself has changed basic setting, YMMV.

you are more than right my friend. basic settings didnt change.

now why from crossing from darkone skin to darkonemod skin, without being able to revert to the old one, this i cannot understand.
is there a way to save all the other settings apart from skin, so that if i completely uninstall foobar, and reinstall it, i can put my settings back up and then try again to install the darkone skin and be happy? thank you

Hello!

I can feel your frustration...

This is what I would do:
First uninstall foobar and DarkOne 4 completely.
Clean any out any leftovers.

Install foobar2000 v1.4.2 (last stable version)
Install DarkOne 4.0
https://www.deviantart.com/tedgo/art/DarkOne-v4-360862076
Then read up on this thread and what WilB says.
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,112914.msg951953.html#msg951953

This is a slightly modified version of DarkOne 4.0
Download the DarkOne v4.0 - Tedgo - JScript Biography Version (0.9.01) - Modified by WilB.fcl
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=112914.0;attach=12404
Install it and all is good! :D

When done you can update to JScript Biography 0.9.0.2
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,112913.msg952419.html#msg952419

WilB is very helpful and this worked out really well for me!
Thanks to WilB and Tedgo!
