Trying to use FB2K a bit more and am stumped by the following.  See how The Smiths tracks do not follow the "typical" format.  I have tried re-tagging them to no avail.  Any ideas??

Seems like the directory contains "single" so they're assumed as single tracks.

Hi,

New to Foobar here, but I love your azrael setup. I want to know how to set up an album art box like you have in your screenshot. I have cover art ready. Am I mising a plugin, or what code do I need to use?

I have
1) removed the Azrael 5.6.6 release (0.9, 1.3 mod)
2) Moved Azrael Light to its own thread

Hi Neksus:

I did a little modifications in your config...I hope that it does not bother to you 

The changes.

Albums with %album artist% are displayed like various

Added [CD%disc%] in album

Leght and time elapsed in title column (more dinamic for long titles and lenghts)

Bonus, artist various and lenght take the colour of selectedtext or playingtext

Added $puts(album,XXXXXX) in color_scheme and $set_global(album,$get(album)) in Settings global color to make possible change album and artist text colour in Artist column (I suppose you forget added it because is present in previous releases...)

And a minimalist colour_scheme in black,white and grey

Here is a screenshot:



And the config mod:

Nope I removed that color on purpose!

The color schemes from 10 to 19 are not working.
ColumnsUI just displays white background with black text.

And finaly the Album Artist tag is integrated.

But as always a great config! My favourite since beginning!
Keep up the good work!

First, the praise: I absolutely love this scheme and I've never really used anything else with Columns UI since I found your first FCS back near the inception of the whole FCS trading craze.

Second, I don't know if you're taking suggestions, but there's two modifications I've made to your scheme that I liked having.  I have a directory for singles just like I'm guessing you do, so extrapolating single tracks based on the directory structure isn't a bad idea . . . except I run into a significant problem when the album name has 'single' in it!  So I changed the condition to be that 'single' was in the directory structure and not in the album name.  Worked well for me.

Secondly, I make a distinction in my tagging scheme that others may not make.  Both 'album artist' and 'various' imply a various artist CD, but I try to make them mutually exclusive with 'album artist' taking precedence if they both exist.  For me, 'album artist' means one person did most of the CD or featured most prevalently in it, but there were contributing artists of note.  'Various' means that the whole CD is just a grab bag.

So what I do when listing the titles from an 'is_various' album is I check if the 'artist' field is equivalent to the 'album artist' field and if it is, I don't display it.  Since the album artist is already displayed as the disc owner, and any time there is an additional/different artist they're displayed, I feel there's no ambiguity and it removes the redundancy of the artist name appearing 10 times and only not appearing 3/4.

Just a couple thoughts!  Keep up the good work, you're awesome

This is a good idea! I will look into this as soon as possible!

Sounds reasonable enough, but I don't use the album artist tag at all!
And if a cd contains more then one artist it is a various in my eyes!
Can you give me an example of a cd which has 3/4 of the songs by one artist and the 1/4 of various artists?

I have a problem with the Various Artist recognition. My azreal 5.6.6 (foobar 0.8.2) doesnt recognize them unless they are put in a playlist with only VA albums. If they are not they just show like random singles.

Is there any solution to this?

That sounds strange how to you have your VA albums?
With various as tag or?

Yeah I think so. I think it could be related to sorting. As you see on the screens the song is listed as VA but is sorted wrong. Hope you understand what I mean 

Song in default playlist
Song in VA playlist

It is sorting!
Try using this
Code: [Select]
$if($or(%various%,$strstr($upper(%_path%),'VARIOUS ARTISTS')),%album%,%artist%)|%_path%|$num(%_subsong%,9)

Files in single mode still seem to display these lines (above track 1 for example) from album mode.
