I'm almost done my new display panel. There was nothing wrong with Tedgo's, I just wanted to add a blue florescent Track Display on it. It's between the Track (etc) numbers and the peak bar. I made other enhancements too. I don't want to steel Tedgo's thunder (especially since it's mostly his code), so I'll post the image somewhere else, if anyone is interested. In about a week, do a search for "Darkone V4.1"
Hi Tedgo, thank you for this beautiful skin, it really widens the usage of the player. I want to give a try as a media center controller, but can't understand how to enlarge basic fonts? (playlist, lib, etc). Is it possible?
tedgo... For the FL display in the bottom middle (not sure what you call it) is there any chance you can make the song title appear there and also make it scroll if it's long enough? Sort of like a SACD player or the old MD players. Thanks.
Update...I was able to put the song title in the display area but decided to forgo the scrolling. I couldn't figure out how to have the scrolling limited to the display only. Plus it seemed slow, anyway.
I'm looking for and the Artist that appears in that block when you place the cursor on the song when i go to Biography Server ,Misc, (activate) the last two boxes Provide art to other art viewers,and Provide Title formatting but my COVER crashed ( No album Cover) Can you help me fix this problem so the cover will be there and everything will be working
What you mention at the bottom seems like what I'm looking for
These two options are experimental and can't work with ELPlaylist, because this Playlist only "reads" images available when playback starts only, not when updated through another plugin during playback.
Regarding DarkOne V4.0 ELP view on mouse-over of album header: If any value is entered for "Album Artist" (i.e., not left blank), "Various" is displayed as the artist even if the "Artist" equals the "Album Artist" and the "Album Artist", of course , is the same for every song.
Nice skin. Has really withstood the test of time! RedStripe
First, I have to say: Very good and nice theme! Thanks for all the work Tedgo. I have a problem to group albums with more then 1 disc. I suspect that default grouping would group each disc separtly. But every time I have a disc number is the tags, every track becomes 1 group and I can't find how to fix this. Can you check this out?
This happens when you have both discs in one folder because they are sorted like the path they are prrsent on the harddisc... Best solution would be: store each disc in an own subfolder or rename the files like this [%discnumber% - ][%tracknumber%. ]%title%
Another solution: change sorting scheme of foobar2000 (and the different components, like playlists, album list and filters)
Hi tedgo, I reinstalled Foobar (standard installation C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000) with windows 8.1 and now I keep getting a message that the configuration file could not be written. It's a foobar thing, not Darkone, since it occurs also when Darkone is not installed. Still, do you know what I can do to solve this?
Are you sure you have installed it as "Standard" and not as "portable" version to the standard installation path? This message usually only occurs, when the configuration folder is installed inside the foobar2000 installation path (which is the case when installed as portable only..)
Hi Tedgo, I'm wondering if you could help me with a little (hope) issue. I'd like to replace the seekbar and scrolling text (song title) and instead add information from the tags, specially the comments (it was like I used to have in the TRACKINFO on the DarkOne v.3.1. I've done a screen capture of my desired config so maybe you could look at it in this link es.tinypic.com/r/23hozva/8 THANKS a lot for your work and support !!
I swear it will look ugly on widescreen monitors...
In STOP mode do a right-mouse-click on the area of the seekbar and select "Close panel". Now do again a right-mouse-click on this area and select "Add Panel --> Panels --> Item details" Next right-mouse-click here and select "Splitter Settings --> PanelList" Select the Item details panel from the list, enable "Forced layout" and enter the following values: left: 0 top: $add(%ps_width%,10) width: %ps_width% height: $sub(%ps_height%,$add(%ps_width%,10))
Now hit the "Configure" button and overwrite the content of the "Title format" text box with this: $rgb(128,192,255)[$upper(%artist%)$crlf()]
$rgb(192,224,255)[$upper(%album%[ - %album subtitle%][ - CD %discnumber%])$crlf()]
Thanks a lot Tedgo, I'm ALMOST getting it the way I love it... just one more question: can I replace the waveform seekbar with the progress bar which is also a seekbar (the same that you use in darkOne v. 3.1? it's simple but i just love that progress bar and I can't find it in v.4. Tahnks for your patience, I'll promise to upload my configuration, it's getting really nice for the ones that need to show a lot of information on sreen
It is possible by replacing waveform seekbar with a WSH Panel mod. The display script from v3.1 has to be edited, though, to use it in v4 as "seekbar only" script. I don't find the time to edit it atm. but maybe you remind me at the end of january
I've been using DO3.1 for a while now, but I don't seem to be able to install 4. I'm getting this on startup: "Failed to load DLL: foo_wave_seekbar.dll Reason: Unknown error code (3221225501)".
What's worse: I tried going back to 3.1 (with a clean install and everything) and now I get the same error. I'm guessing the wave seekbar component was updated since the last time I installed it and now I can't run it for some reason? I'm on an oldish comp tbh.
I notice the border for the Waveform Seekbar is broken. I have Disable Window Border unchecked but as soon as you hit stop and play or reboot Foobar, it's gone. Is there any way to fix this? Thanks!
Update... Never mind. I found a way by accident. I went into Splitter Settings and selected PSS Refresh. I unclicked Forced layout and clicked Lock Size. Size being 100. Now the border stays. The playlist border is more stable now too.
Follow-up question...How would I change the colors of the white borders around the Waveform seekbar and the playlist? I would also like to change the color of the white colored track title that is currently playing. Thanks!
