How can we add a fifth digit so high samplerates appear properly?(above 10.000 Kbps)

Thanks in advance!

Hi Tdego,
I'm continuing to love DarkOne v4. I'm having a problem with the installer in a second account on my computer, however; it runs (requring an admin password), and the PDF comes up, but foobar remains unskinned. Any idea what the problem could be? Are there instructions for manually installing the skin?

the pdf is darkone manual isnt it? it should mention installing step

otherwise look up your foobar2000/themes/darkone_v4 folder
u should find manual pdf in there, those manual have installing step

hope help

I have 3 questions/problems:

1. I did a fresh install of v4 and I do not get the standard "windows" frame at the top. So i cant minimize/move/close the window using the border or icons at the top left. I am on Windows 8.1 x64

2. How does the quick search at the bottom work? My previous experience with other foobar layouts it would filter the library. That doesnt seem to be the case with this search. How can I make it do a quick filter of the library?

3. How do I update the playlist side with the currently filtered selection? If I click on an artist or album, I would like to see that in the playlist view. I believe it functioned like this in a previous version.

This skin is awesome, but now that I have a new laptop with high DPI, the images and text do not follow my DPI settings and look very small. Here is the link i.imgur.com/jTtHmOl.png

Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Thanks.

Tedgo, awesome addon, thank you!!!!

I just installed it on my Razer Blade and it looks weird, very small images and text :( The laptop's resolution is 3200x1900 and it might be causing it. Any way I can make it look good?

Haven't considered that high resolutions...

Maybe i will recreate the theme when i have time...
I thought about dynamic sizes for the buttons/images and text, so it will look the same on every resolution.

But for the moment there is no solution for this problem, sorry...
And it will last some time before i will have enough time for recreating the theme...

Tedgo, thank you for all your hard work on this amazing skin. Without it, I wouldn't even bother using Foobar2000. I was thinking about changing some of the colours but there are two things I can't change. They are the buttons like BIO and the button labels on play, stop for the bottom panel.  They are both the same bluish-green colour.

I can answer some of this for a fellow 69'er. :) The little symbols for the panel buttons are in a file called Signs.png. You have to edit this in paint program like Photoshop. I looked for those other labels (Bio, etc) but I can't find those. It's like they appear out of thin air.

tedgo Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015
The button colours can be found in each panel stack splitters settings (Script --> Per Track tab --> // ----- BUTTON-VARIABLES)
The variables are called col1 and col2.

I should set them as global variables at the main splitter... maybe when i update the theme (someday... ;))

Hello, love the theme man, love it.  I have a question regarding the Artwork viewer.  Choosing the "custom pictures" option and going into "properties", will allow you to define 5 images for the viewer to display. I would like to add a couple of addl pictures to the config and am hitting a problem.  I don't get any errors.  I am not really a programmer, I can write a decent Unix shell script but that's it.

My thoughts are that there's another linkage that I can't find.  I'm really trying to teach myself the coding language which is why I'm screwing around with your code.  :)  Can you show me where the addl changes need to be made?  If you can tell which script needs to be edited I'll try to figure out what to put there.

I've detailed the changes that I've made below.

Thanks tedgo and again, I love the theme.

Cliff


All of the changes I've made are in the "DarkOne Cover Panel" WSH script:

var a_arr = new Array("Picture 1", "Picture 2", "Picture 3", "Picture 4", "Picture 5", "Picture 6", "Picture 7");
var b_arr = new Array("Front cover", "Back cover", "Disc", "Icon", "Artist", "Artist2", "Event");

I appended the new definitions here:

var e_arr = [];
e_arr[5] = gdi.Image(imgPath + "NoImage.png");
e_arr[6] = gdi.Image(imgPath + "NoImage.png");

var f_arr = [];
f_arr[5] = window.GetProperty(a_arr[5],"");
f_arr[6] = window.GetProperty(a_arr[6],"");

I can see the new options in the "Properties" window:

Picture 1    $directory_path(%path%)\artist      
Picture 2    $directory_path(%path%)\front  
Picture 3    $directory_path(%path%)\back  
Picture 4   $directory_path(%path%)\cd  
Picture 5    $directory_path(%path%)\inside  
Picture 6    $directory_path(%path%)\artist2  
Picture 7    $directory_path(%path%)\event

Tedgo... Do you happen to know which exact font is being used for the left and right WSH panels?

I have noticed the font for "PEAK / SPEC." doesn't match the fonts for the other button labels. If you rename PEAK / SPEC. to "TIME" (for example) it doesn't look anything like the TIME label above it. I think part of it is because the PEAK / SPEC is in the splitter settings and everything else is in the WSH panel. The fonts for the right and left WSH panels aren't imputed. Only btn_font exits. 

Thanks!

:icontedgo:
tedgo Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015
The font is the same as for "PEAK/SPEC." but is rendered differently...
You can find the font line 8 in the "DO 4.0 Global Script.js" file in ...\foobar2000\themes\DarkOne_v4.0\Others\WSH Scripts folder.

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" :)

Its an issue in columns ui.
Ratings shouldn't be broken, but only the stars are displayed as rectangles.
Offen restarting the system solves it.

I heard about a bug in Chrome/Opera that could cause this issue in utf-8 character encoding.
But this should be solved in the meantime...

It works for me since one or two months, but also had this issue before.
So i guess chrome was the origin of this bug... can't swear of that, though...

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.

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!

Yes, this behaviour is intended, since "Album Artist" TAG should only be filled when various artists are present on an album.
So i assume, that "Various" artists have worked on the album... ;)

However, it should still work on each track!

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?
Reply
:icontedgo:
tedgo Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2015
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)
