:bulletgreen: No cover – setting up „no cover stub image”:
1. Open prefs
2. Go to display
3. Look for "stub image path", point it to "nocover.png" (skins :pointr: Amethyst :pointr: Raw)

:bulletgreen: Enable/disable scrollbars in Library Tree Panel:
1. Right click on Library Tree Panel,
2. Choose panel preferences,
3. Set scrollbar to default (will be shown when needed) or hide (always hidden) :pointr: (bottom right section).

:bulletgreen: Enable/disable scrollbars in ELPlaylist:
1. Right click on any track or playlist header,
2. Choose setings,
3. Go to style tab,
4. Set scrollbar to default (will be shown when needed), hide (always hidden) or show (always visible) :pointr: (bottom left section).


If you like my configs, support me with a :+fav: or comment. :beer: is fine too!

Awesome work. My only problem is the seek bar doesn't register mouse clicks outside of a pixel-thin area. And not quite as annoying but when a track is playing you can't see the total length, only the current progress. If you're too busy I'd love to adjust these things on my end but I wouldn't know what to edit :(

Just started using this theme and am really am liking it, however I cant seem to move the window without it being in mini-mode.

Any reason why, or is there a specific place I'm supposed to click to drag?

Also, an added comment, the playlist you show in the preview looks a lot different then what I have.

Simply minimal!

1. How can I setup to download one image per artist & album like in Veronica2?

2. How can I expand the Details Tab to show all the metadata and also have its content shifted left?

Thank you.

To be honest, I don't know if it's still possible to download images through old biography panel. I think that even Veronica2 has problems with artist/album images. Gonna check that asap.

As for #2, you need to do some coding. Right click on metadata viewer on details tab, select splitter settings -> script, and there you go. You'll need to find all meta items you want to add and then edit the box and text strings. Can't really guide you through this as I'm really busy lately :(

(using this skin for over a year, just forgot my DA password so comment this lately)
Highly recommend for everyone who seek for a "compact design" skin like original FB2K does while not losing library functions.
simple but elegant design, and doesn't turn FB2K into a memory eater like other skins.

p.s. although it said this is based on 1.3, still works on v1.2.1 (not recommend, I just stick for some old component) ;)
p.s.s. If you are a CJK user, you may want to change skin font to Meiryo UI, 9pt (also need other editing like padding though) since CJK looks bit too small for me.

it was created on 1.1.4 beta to be exact. Last tested build was tested on 1.3, hence the version info :)
Still, I'm glad it's working for you :D

It's totally possible. You need to edit stack splitters. Basically, you right click on a panel, select splitter settings -> script and look for text color variables. I've put them near the top of the script (textcol, txtcol or texcol, can't remember how I named them right now). You need to do this for every panel (tab) in the player.

You have done it man. I've been a devout user of Br3tt's Spotifoo theme for the last 5 years but today, I have changed. I love that I can get 95% of the functionality I loved from Spotifoo in such a beautiful and small player (love the overlay menus!).

One suggestion/question I have is regarding the seekbar. Is there anyway to get the track length/current time in the track to show up in that area of the player? Right now it's just a barebones seekbar, but sometimes I want to see how long a song is or at what minute into a song I am and I can't do that with this. :(

Amazing skin! I don't use the rating system for my music. Is there a way to remove it?

Thank you!

slowboyfast Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
Yep, just head into prefs->display->columns ui->layout and remove wsh panel mod that's responsible for the rating (it should be somewhere in the second panel stack splitter).

Sadly, I can't upload any screenshots to guide you :(

One of the greater skins I've seen so far! Great work. If you're planning on updating it some more, maybe you can add the ability to collapse an album using the middle click. We all know how the difference of one click can be a real matter of life and death sometimes! Cheers nonetheless!

For now, you can add this feature yourself. It's really easy.

Right click on playlist -> settings -> behaviour

Click action:
Middle click -> Group -> Change from "select group" to "expand/collapse".

Is alpha transparency in Aero section off?

No, it has nothing to do with VS.

Yeah, if I turn it on the whole player goes white. Tried changing the fonts and I still get the same issue, did a fresh install once more but still getting it.

Good, alpha transparency should stay off. When it's on, shit can get pretty out of hand.

On the first sight, I can clearly see that something is wrong with pseudo transparency on panels.
But really, I downloaded Amethyst, checked it for errors and repacked to make sure everything is allright.

Did you make any edits? Color changes?

After 2 days trying out, I noticed it was quite a peculiar combination of the visual style I had and MacType. Both of those together made the skin look like that, using one without the other goes quite well, not sure why.

:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Foobar is using Windows GDI font rendering. So when you use MacType, it's not gonna "recognize" what's going on with fonts.
I just downloaded MacType to see if I can fix it.
