Yes, thank you very much, I was a bit confused. I would like to sort the tracks via tracknumbers in their tag fields and changed under "Settings" of the ELPlaylist the "sort format" in the "Grouping" field to "%tracknumber_sort%", but the tracks still get listed like they are in the explorer. Am I doing it wrong or what's the reason? I thought this would have a higher priority as the tracks are sort in the folder?
You just need to open the hifoo.fcl file via Ctrl+P --> Columns UI/main tab --> "FCL importing and exporting" --> Import.
That should work.
I don't tested hifoo, does it comes with configuration files? If you only want to test it, without removing darkone, i'd advice you to install a portable foobar2000 installation and test it in this installation instead of your main installation.
hi i have a little problem i searched all the components and installed them but when i want to import the "darkone.fcl" it is said that 3 more panels are not installed 1. wsh panel mod (184.108.40.206) 2. el playlist (v0.6.9.0b(2010/07/30)) 3. biography (v0.4.2.3(2010/09/20))
i have them all but i think that mb the problem is that they arent the version you wrote but i dont find your version can you help me?
This is such an excellent piece of work, my friend... Thank you. I only wanted to ask you how it could be possible to include a panel with album list and one with the equalizer, because they were the only features I had on my previous basic foobar theme. Thanks again and hope to read you soon!
Album List is already in the config (the "AL" button on the bottom right hand corner). The equalizer can't be integrated in a columns UI config to my knowledge. Only possible in a default UI config. Sorry.
Btw. have you checked the actual version v2.1? [link] It comes with an installer that should be more easy to use. It lacks the compact mode, though...
Hi. I used this skin for 2 months and it worked perfectly. i bought a laptop, and i copied all the components from the old pc to the laptop. installed foobar, and the skin. but the lyric panel doesn't work it writes only: lyrics not available, and i cant search or anything.. if i right click on it, i can add panel, but if i add lyricshow, it works, but it looks ugly can u help me?
First, let me tell you, ~tedgo, that I *really love* your theme. It has what I always wanted: - clear usable filters - all types of random easily clickable - ratings + pictures - EASY INSTALL!!! <-- very important to me, I'm not a computer wizard.
I'm moving from iTunes to foobar since iTunes decided to act stupidly (Consolidate sucks). So I'm a big total foobar noobie, excuse me if my questions sound stupid to you, but here I am:
- Is there a way to have any kind of smart playlist, like iTunes do ? Mainly for the ratings: I'd like to group all the 5 stars songs, group all the 4, etc... ?
- From these playlists, is there a way to, for example, delete all the songs rated 1 star ? I tried manually, 1 song at a time, the file is not deleted (!)
- Is there a vista addon for the sidebar which would allow me to easily (1 click) assign a rating to the current playing song ?
v1.5.2 should work with foobar2000 v1.0 (although it is still beta). In v1.0 you can easily set up the in-built artreader used in DarkOne to display custom album art. In your case the string should be called: %album%.jpg (unfortunately there is no wildcard possible until now...).
hey tedgo,good work!i downloaded and installed Darkone,it's quitly beautyful,but i have one question that is how to setting of display different album cover?all of my songs in one folder as i copy one cover to this folder and rename it to cover.jpg or folder.jpg,it's can correctly show on cover panel,but i wanna it can show diffirent album cover when it play different album(songs),could u tell me how to setting? thanx!
If you have all songs in one folder and want to display different covers, you need to embed the covers to the file (with MP3Tag) or use the optional plugin foo_covers, and set it up to display front covers like: "Queen - Greatest Hits.jpg" (would be in title formatting: %artist% - %album%.*). You need to rename your covers though...
Have you seen there's an updated version of DarkOne available? [link] It should be less memory/power consumptive, a bit faster and includes some bug fixes. But lacks the compact mode, though...
You need the latest ELPlaylist and then ensure that on field definition tab --> __ART_OPTION__ is set to artreader_front nodelay.
If it doesn't works for you, you need to change __ART_PATH__ and __ART_OPTION__ to not use the artreader/foo_covers but exact paths instead ($directory_path(%path%)\%album%.* in __ART_PATH__ and wc nodelay in __ART_OPTION__).
You only need to copy the components to the ...\foobar2000\components folder. You could add foo_upnp browser as a panel to the multipanel switcher on the right (read user guide chapter 3.12 for this purpose) and get the foo_burninate commands in the musics file context menu.
Thank you for your reply. And one more question. How can I make a playlist in a popup window to display all the tracks? Now only 5 tracks. PS If I ask too many questions, let me know - I will try to understand independently.
Mode 0 rates tracks to the database only. And this is available only for tracks in the media library. But if such a track already has ratings in tags - displaying database rating will be ignored to avoid mixed rating display (e.g. in tags 5, in database 3, would give 4, that for i decided to ignore database rating if tag rating is present). It should rate to the tracks still.
Could you give more detailed information if its not working at all?
