Placebo by slowboyfast Placebo by slowboyfast
Best served with Placebo Pure Morning & Cold Market:)
Tested on 1.1.14a - 1.3 b5, should be compatible with any version that can use WSH 1.5.6!

:bulletred: This theme will not be updated anymore. Mind that I also won't provide any support.


Changelog:
(22-4-2013)***MINOR BUGFIX*** PBO buttons are aligned properly. Fixed controls in "Pure (Segoe Semibold)"

(10-4-2013)***UPDATE*** New PBO script, volume and control icons.

(31-1-2013)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Text clipping bug resolved.

(6-12-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Volume bars are aligned properly now.

(27-11-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** "Playing" and "selected" items are now properly skinned.

(24-11-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Fixed coding in headers.

(23-11-2012)***UPDATE*** Reworked nearly everything! Bottom does not look like MNLT2 anymore, blends better with Placebo VS. New buttons (taken from my other skin - The Spy), smaller toolbar, library moved to the right. Each style has 2 font variations (Segoe Semibold, Calibri). Enjoy!

(30-10-2012)***UPDATE*** Added new color scheme to match Placebo Cold Market, improved Pure Morning scheme, added gradients and stuff. Buttons are now part of PSS script, this means you don't need to load fixes, should work out of the box.
++2 styles included:
-Pure (dark toolbar / blue seekbar)
-Cold (light toolbar / dark grey seekbar)

(16-10-2012)***IMPORTANT*** Added pictures to explain how to edit tabs!

Hi!

I'm new to Foobar and this is the first skin I tried to install only it doesn't look like the picture AT ALL. Instead it  looks like this Link
I feel really stupid because I know I'm just missing something really obvious... can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?? Thanks!

Hmm, If I were on Windows 8.1 I'd be able to see deeper into this problem.
But let's see. As for window border, it's ok. This theme is using system style borders. To change it, you'll need to install custom visual style, like Base 8 by link6155. I don't know why WSH components (seek bar, volume bar and playback order button) are showing 0db tho. Try doing this:

Right click on where seek bar should be, select configure, you should see a window with script. Now look in upper left corner, it should say scripting engine: jscript. Try switching from jscript to jscript9. If it won't work, lemme know and I'll think about other solutions :)

Cheers!

friggimay Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2014
thanks for the quick response. I tried right-clicking the seek bar but no matter where I right click it just selects the whole window (everything is marked blue) and the only options I have are: change panel, change splitter or add panel.
Is it possible I just installed it wrong?

It seems you have live editing enabled. Right click on f2k tray icon -> preferences -> columns ui -> check show toolbars.
Now, once you have toolbars enabled, click on view menu -> layout -> live editing [here's a screenshot].
After that, you'll be able to click on stuff :)

Okay, I checked show toolbars and then I tried to switch to jscript9 but I can't find the scripting engine option link
Again thanks for your help and I'm really sorry for bothering you so much...

:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
Ok, did you turned live editing off?

Also, you can't find scripting engine stuff because you're clicking on default UI elements :) click on WSH panels. I highlighted them on this screenshot.

And if you still have issues, try this. It's a compressed version of Placebo. Just unpack and run.

There's readme on how to add/remove panels inside the archive. Just follow those instructions.

If you don't want to add spectrum as a separate tab, then I can't help. I don't work on this theme anymore.

To change font in library:
Open preferences -> display -> columns ui -> fonts and colors -> fonts -> Element: Library tree, Mode: Custom, then just choose your font

To change playlist font:
Right click on playlist -> settings -> script -> track list, look for $font(calibri,8,bold) [or segoe ui, depends on which version you are using], change calibri to anything you like, do the same on group header tab

To add rating, you need to tell me if you want to see stars, hearts or numbers as rating. Then I'll do some scripting for you.

You use folder.jpg as covers? If yes, foobar should already see them. I also keep some covers as "folder.jpg" and foo doesn't have any problems whatsoever.

Ah yes, I fucked that up. Sorry. First, go back to fonts and make it how it was before.

Then, instead of fonts, you select colors, then library tree and then custom >>>sta.sh/01qmz0j6gdqp. Hit ok.
Then, you right click on library tree, select panel preferences, click on change font, and there it is >>>sta.sh/01utglwu3sot.

Hope it's now working :)

Hi slowboyfast,

I love the skin but have two questions:

1. Is there any way to adjust the size of the library tree panel? It takes up the leftmost 40% of the screen right now and I'd like for it to only take up about 20-25%, leaving the remainder for the songs. 

2. I have the windows taskbar set to hide itself automatically and when I have foobar maximized with this skin, the taskbar won't pull itself up when hovered over and I have to use alt+tab to get out. Is there any way around this? 

Thanks in advance! :D Great skin!

slowboyfast Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014
Hey bro, 

1. Go to prefs -> columns ui -> layout and find this highlighted panel stack splitter. Click on it and press configure. In the new window you'll see 2 panels, Libtree and Elplaylist. Select first (X) and change its size from 35 to whatever you like. Same goes for second (y), select it and change it from 65 to whatever you desire :) Just remember that X+Y=100 (coz it's set to percentage).

2. Strange, auto hiding works fine for me. Maybe you were tinkering with foobar preferences? Coz I have no idea why is this happening :)

slowboyfast Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2014
Sorry for the late response, I'm out of town right now :)

Well, point 1 is already detailed but I'll try to make it clearer.
Open up Preferences -> Display -> Columns UI -> Layout. Look for this exact PSS and click configure.
It will open totally new window with Libtree and ELPlaylist on the right and size/padding section on the right.
You need to change size fields. It's a percentage value, so if Libtree is 35, ELPlaylist should be 65. If you change it to 20, then ELPlaylist should be 80. Just like I said above. Treat Libtree like X and ELP like Y. X+Y=100.

If I may ask, what windows theme are you using in that picture? I'm actually using your nice Veronica skin, and I'd like a scrollbar meshes with it, or at least isn't disgustingly ugly like the default Windows one.

Thanks.

Suffers from the same problem that many players have.  There's no now playing tab so if you decide to browse your library, the player will automatically switch to whatever you're browsing at that moment.

Also, for whatever reason, when I drag a folder from the folder view into the playlist panel, the files are out of order.  I name my tracks so that everything is preceded by 01, 02, 03... so I'm not really sure why this happens.

Auto switching lists:
:bulletred: When you're browsing your library, libtree component generates new autoplaylist. To prevent foo from erasing your current list, rename it to Now Playing and send your items there. Sorry, I know no other method. It's the choice of components.

Out of order files:
:bulletred: It's a problem that came from MNLT2 (this theme is a mod). I'll fix it in the next update and rewrite everything from scratch.

For the time, you can go to preferences -> media library -> library tree -> look for click action.
Change single click: 
send to specified playlist 
to
add to new playlist

Experiment with the settings. This way your current playlist will remain intact as you browse your lib.

Which part displays the message, volume bar, seek bar or playback order button? All 3 are using WSH script panels. Does this problem occurs when you start playing your music / changing volume?

Is there a way to make it so it would hide unless I clicked on the tab button and then it would show up again? Like in MonoLite(Not sure if that's the name of the foobar config).

slowboyfast Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2013
Autohiding requires new script.
You can add new tab with media library.
It would look like this:
Playlist (just playlist), Media Library (tree view+playlist), rest of tabs.

To do this, follow these steps:
1. Load .fcl again
2. open layout tab
3. select 4th panel stack splitter, righ click, copy
4. click on 3rd panel stack splitter, right click, paste
5. remove quick search and library tree from newly created splitter
6. see instructions on how to arrange tabs (coz they will be messed up), it's in the rar.

Yeah, few other people told me about this, and the worst part is I can't make ELplaylist to auto sort. On hydrogenaudio it's stated that it just can't use autosorting and everything must be done manually (which is dumb).

I would help but I can't reproduce this problem on any of my computers. Well, it hit me once long time ago when I was using MNLT2 but my library was a mess. Adding numbers to my files helped.
Like this:
Tracktitle.mp3
01.Tracktitle.mp3
(then 02, 03, 04, etc)

You can check ELplaylist page on Hydrogenaudio. It states that: "Execution of the sort is done from the context menu. Sorting is not done automatically."

Can you check your ELplaylist settings? (right click on playlist>settings>grouping)
They should look like this.

Try changing group format to: %artist% %album%
Then change sort format to: %artist% - %album% - %tracknumber%
