My first stab.  There's still a lot I want to do, but it's a start!

Big props to Tool for being the Foobar Pimp that he is.

Could someone help me, i'm stuck and dont know what's wrong with my configs. As you can see the upper info don't show correctly and alubum art doesn't show.

Are you sure that top panel is a trackinfo_mod rather than a trackinfo?

How have you done your album art.

Iirc that old code is pretty buggy but meh, it worked for a lot of others so I don't see where the problem is.

looks like you have the original track info panel when you need to use the latest trackinfo_mod panel

You also need to edit the Simageabs2 portion of the code to read your album art.....if its named cover and folder and the file extension needs to be considered. for exemple...

Code: [Select]
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'images\noalbum.png',)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)folder.png,)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)folder.jpg,)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)cover.jpg,)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)cover.png,)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'images\artoverlay.png',)

Okay, now i'm one step closer  I got right trackinfo_mod but now i cant get that part where buttons (marked area) are scaled, it doesnt move up or down, just sideways and i dont know how to scale those track infos and horizontal splitters. Layouttree is now identical with tool++'s (i've checked that 5 times)

Hello all there.

I'm a newbie in the use of Foobar.

I think this audio player is a great one, but I can't customise it.
In an other way, I don't find the good library(ies) to custome it.

Could I have some help from u ?

Where to fine these plug ins ?
- foo_uie_browser
- foo_uie_trackinfo
- foo_uie_albumart_msn

Thanks in advance.

Say you have a folder with all your album art there and you have it organised as %artist% - %album%.jpg just add
Code: [Select]
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,C:Artwork folder\%artist% - %album%.jpg


to the list of picture locations....that should work i think

ok.... heres my album art code now :
Code: [Select]
$font(cambria,12,bold,164-171-179)
$drawrect(0,0,0,0,brushcolor-240-240-240 pencolor-null)

$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Images\noalbum.png',)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'C:\Covers\%artist% - %album%.jpg',)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Images\artoverlay.png',)

$alignabs(92,40,$add(%_width%,-107),20,left,top)
$lower($if2(%album artist%,%artist%))
$alignabs(92,55,$add(%_width%,-107),20,left,top)
$font(Swis721 Cn BT D-Type,14,,138-145-153)
%album%$font(Swis721 Cn BT D-Type,14,bold,120-120-120)[ %date%]
$alignabs(92,71,$add(%_width%,-107),20,left,top)
$font(calibri,9,bold,153-153-153)[$upper(%genre%)]


and here's how foobar show's it :

i had some problems with the pics too, maybe it's a bad tag problem.
but now i use only the album name for the pics:

$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)%album%.jpg,)

or $imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,C:Artwork folder\%album%.jpg

i've exported the button.fcb for the play/pause but what to do with the other 'menu' button?
and what about those side and empty track info's?!

I'm using a highly modified version (I called EerieCream  ) of tool++s columnsUI config, which is a work-in-progress, and may even use certain codes of navigator suite and others (I simply have forgotten where I've taken them from).
Screenshot #1: +++
fcs-file (v.0.01): +++
It supports: mood-tag,rating (both album+track), playcount, replaygain (both), artist, composer, ensemble, etc.. as a compromise to both support popular music and classical, release date, remastered date, production date, media source, recording types, label name, isbootleg, isdemo, issingle, (sofficial) blah blah.

coloring is done based on mood, playcount, track- and album rating tags, most is customizable (see globals tab)

I'd like to hear your suggestions, though I know that there are bugs (sortof), there are none as of yet that disturb my foobar listing experience  Do whatever you like with it

I think i know where the problem is....i have this album art code now and it doesnt show the albums even if they are in albumtitle.jpg

Code: [Select]
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Images\noalbum.png',)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Covers\%album%.jpg',)
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Images\artoverlay.png',)


When i changed the middle code to this
Code: [Select]
$imageabs2(84,84,,,,,5,3,'C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Covers\albumtitle.jpg',)

the code showed same album on all album cover art places. So problem is probably in tags? because program dont understand that %album% so is there any other code to describe album than %album%

as a test take one album.....open its properties and copy the text field in album and rename the corresponding picture file and paste the copied value in tthe new filename

Then look at the album in the playlist view...I can only thing that either your tags or maybe your pictures filenames arent matching.

(make sure you are using the %album% tag in the imageabs2 code)

I'm completely new to foobar. By completely new, I mean that I've only used WMP and Winamp in the past, with no skinning/scripting experience, and only downloaded foobar yesterday. If I can figure out how to go through your instructions, I'm sure others will figure it out soon enough.

Thanks a lot, toolej. You really help newcomers learn to customize their foobar. All I've done is use your setup, with glossy overlays. I will update future modifications once I start going through some tutorials.

Here's my very slight mod:




Thanks again, toolej! Much appreciated!

toolej,

Can you post the single column playlist settings for configurations shown in the first post?  Things like: row height, group height, item display, group display?

It's because the %album%/%artist%/etc variables are encased in apostrophes, so they don't get read as tags, but read literally as %album%/%artist%/etc...

In short, remove the apostrophes (single quotes), they aren't needed, and cause the variables/tags NOT to get evaluated.

nice i got it to work pretty well.

First of all thanks for a wonderful theme. It's beautiful. Though it wasn't easy to configure all the stuff

Still I have some problem with plugin trackinfo, both the top and the bottom freeze when I play any song:



Any suggestions?
