Foobar2000 Customization Topic

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the links guys ill check them out later ;) Cheers

Edit: Moglenstar I'm reading your guide but how and where do I add the images for the foobar theme? I'm confused :p

now extract this file to wherever your foobar2000.cfg file resides. if you selected "enable per-user settings" during install, then this will be "%appadata%\foobar2000\". if you didn't select "enable per-user settings" during install, this will be wherever you installed foobar to, by default this is "%programfiles%\foobar2000\".

so you should either have (if you didn't select "enable per-user settings")

c:\program files\foobar2000\mog.fm

or (if you did select "enable per-user settings")

c:\documents and settings\<yourname>\application data\foobar2000\mog.fm

then when you add the code for the single_column_playlist, and trackinfo_mod, the images should all show up fine :)

Ditto. I spent a good 2 hours with it last night, and you're right, progress is slow, but you definitely have to put the time in. It seems like a lot of the customization lies in the code, so I need to learn what all those tags and such mean. I've been looking at checkboxes, etc for customization. Now I think I'm headed in the right direction!

Thanks guys!

Just turn all of the hearders of for the panels etc and reassign the divider images.

As for the album sorting, you'll have to add a group config on your own cause it's not pressent in the config from em3 :)

$imageabs2(360,300,,$sub($mul(%_height%,%_itemindex%),$add(%_height%,1)),,%_height%,,,C:\Program Files\foobar2000\components\cd_case\case.png,)

Give this a try..

$if(%isplaying%,%_time_remaining%,%length%)

"Also when you install foobar, untick ‘Enable Per User Settings’. It makes it a lot easier and is what my code is written around."

it was in the first post back about 10 pages.

FYI,

if your config used $imageabs2() with the new / relative paths for everything, all your images (and buttons) could go in the installation directory regardless of the state of "Per user settings"

Excuse me

I have a new question

If there is no cover in an album directory how do I direct to default cover image in foobar directory?

here is my code:

$imageabs2(222,222,0,$sub($mul(%_height%,%_itemindex%),$add(%_height%,5)),,%_height%,33,37,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,cover.*),nokeepaspect)

Thanks for helping :)

Just so you know, the only way I could get foobar2000 working properly in Vista was to enable that setting.

Is the seekbar in BBMartini's config supposed to work? Mine isn't though I followed all the instructions I came over in this thread and doublechecked that my components were up to date. Any ideas?

[edit] I finally got it to update its information per second but I'm not able to seek (by clicking the seekbar). :(

No one can seek it, i think theres a code being developed to seek it but only by intervals of 10 secs, but as for now, they are un-seekable

Under the trackinfo where you have the Seekbar, put a normal Seekbar in the layout, and make it autohide, that way you just hover that part, and itll pop up and you can seek :)

If you take ownership of the foobar2000 directory, you should have no problems..

takeown /f c:\program files\foobar2000

Blast, missed the edit time-window..

anyhow, been working on a new gilouche themed foobar since returning to windows xp, from vista..

single_column_playlist code is mostly bbmartini's playlist, just tweaked a little to match, i'll probably make something to replace that later..

Trackinfo_mod, is based off of my wmp code from vista, all buttons function

i don't intend on releasing this just yet :)

Although it's already been suggested that you just layer images, you could also use the $fileexists() function.

$puts(cover,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,cover.*)
$imageabs2(222,222,,0,$sub($mul(%_height%,%_itemindex%),$add(%_height%,5)),,%_height%,33,37,
	$if($fileexists($get(cover)),$get(cover),/path/to/nocover.jpg)
,nokeepaspect)
