UPDATE: I moded the skin you see here. See the following post for a screeny. Go Here for the mod files.

I'm trying to find some minimalist skins for foobar2000. Everywhere I go I'm flooded with crowded skins that show way to much information and ALWAYS seem to shove the god-awful album art :x (I hate album art... who needs it...) in your face.

So anyways, I'm looking for around for a simple skin, not to far off from the original UI, something with some color, not just white and gray :alien: . Something that doesn't have 10 different frames or sorts all your music based on each different meta-tag in existence; something simple that just sorts everything via playlists.

Here's a good example of the kind of skin I'm talking about :) (yes this one does have album art, but its hidden away way down at the bottom, not in the center of the screen)

Thanks for any suggestions. :D

I decided to use the one I posted at the start of the thread; couldn't find anything better.

I made some modifications, added a search bar, and removed the dam album art and replaced it with a nice Foobar icon i found on the net.

If anyone wants a copy of it, go HERE

Choose your pick:

http://browse.devian...dia/foobar2000/

Tons of themes that would fit your requirements on there. :D

I went through every single submission in the Foobar category - the one up there was the only one that looked half decent to me. Thanks though :)

I've gotten a few requests already so I figured I would just post it here. If you have any issues installing, just post here and I'll see what I can do.

Just to be 100% clear, I did not design this skin, I only modded it a bit. All props go to the original creator Soczi @ DeviantArt

How to install?
- First download skin pack and extract it to your Foobar2000 folder - merge all folders and overwrite existing plugins (or keep newer ones if you have them)

- Go to Foobar's Preferences > Display and chose ColumnsUI from User Interface Module

- Restart Foobar (when you use ColumnsUI for the first time it'll ask you to accept all default settings)

- Now go to Preferences > Display > ColumnsUI and in "FCL importing and exporting" click on import and choose SubjectBeauty.fcl (for the original) or SubjectBeauty_modded_by_conjor.fcl (my mod) file from "foobar2000/skin". Select all settings and then OK

- TO CHANGE COLORS: Goto the ColumnsUI settings page under Layout; you can change the themes color here.

Enjoy!

Again, I didn't make this skin, I only modded it.

Note: I completly got rid of the "NoCOVER" image at the bottom. If you want that instead of the foobar2000 icon, download the original file (see my first post) and swap out all the "\components\nocover_<color>.png" images. Or put your own there lol. If you DO have album art then it will still show up there.

Thanks Conjor


No problem - if you like it, don't be shy to go and post something on the creators DeviantArt page. :rofl:
