Title: Without roaming files, am I SOL?
Post by: tmaxx123 on 2021-01-11 01:05:53
Hello,
I am attempting to transfer over my old trusty f2k setup/themes to my new computer. However, I believe made a mistake when transferring foobar to my new computer, in that I only copied the program files over....A few hours of digging online and troubleshooting, made me realize that I should have copied the roaming files over as well. Since I don't have access to my old computer anymore, can I salvage at least some of my old F2k configuration using only the "foobar2000" program files, or will i have to start over?

Thanks in advance for everyone's time!

In short, yes, you are SOL'd ;)

With a standard install, all customizations are kept in the user folder. (So different users can have different themes)

With a portable install, everything is in a single install folder. (So it can be copied easily and run without installing it)

There are some pretty nice pre-made themes available though -

Eole (https://github.com/Ottodix/Eole-foobar-theme) (CUI)
Georgia (https://github.com/kbuffington/Georgia) (new SMP)
StrigUI (https://theqwertiest.github.io/foo_spider_monkey_panel/docs/script_showcase/full_themes/) (DUI)
CaTRoX (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=114991.0) QWR
TripleQ (https://github.com/raphaelquast/foobar2000_TripleQ)

(I have not tried them all, just linking)

This would be a good time to remind people reading this to backup their foobar install. There's a component for this https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_jesus


some more themes ~ https://audio-file.org/2020/05/01/foobar2000-cui-skins-themes-wallpapers/

Everything can be in single folder even with not portable install. Just remove file user_profiles_enabled after installation.
