I know it may be a little tricky but I must ask. How can I remove the album art, play, pause, and the other buttons, and the volum bar? I just would like to keep the progress bar and the song name. Like this a.pomf.se/ppbhqy.jpg but with the correct size. (photoshopped)

Removing playback order and volume bar:
1. Go to prefs -> display -> columns ui -> layout
2. look for three instances of WSH Panel Mod
3. Delete first and third one.

Removing control buttons, artwork, colors and separators.
1. Right click on the art and select splitter settings
2. Go to Script -> Per Track and delete everything
3. Paste this:

$font(Segoe UI,8,)
$drawtextex($if2(%artist%,by Unknown Artist) - $if2(%title%,Unknown Track),18,43,$sub(%_width%,36),%_height%,58-58-58,hcenter end_ellipsis)

4. Go to Script -> Per Second and delete everything
5. Go to Behaviour and disable "Per Second"
6. Go to Panel List, click on seekbar
7. Use this settings:

Left: 15
Top: 22
Width: $sub(%_width%,30)
Height: 15

8. Hit ok
You'll get something like this: fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/201…

Wow thanks, that worked 10/10.
I'm just wondering how I can now change the size of the bottom panel so that there won't be all that wasted space and more songs are showed.
Reply
:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2015
The thing is, this theme was done in the time when I was still on "WTF AM I DOING" stage. My major fuck up here was blocking the access to the main splitter which holds panels and bottom section. So it's not "moddable" by default. You can fix it tho by going into prefs -> display -> CUI -> layout.

Now, the first thing on the list should be Panel Stack Splitter. This thing is blocked and needs to be replaced by something else and then changed to PSS again. Do this, right click it -> change splitter to vertical splitter -> right click again -> change splitter to panel stack splitter.

Your player should look like this: fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/f/201…
Right click in the middle, where the darker color is and select splitter settings (there will be 2 entries, click on the first one).

Once you have your splitter settings open, you should see panel list with two Panel Stacks. First one is the bottom section with seekbar and art-trk.
Second one should be the panels (bio, plist, etc.). Be sure to name them for easier recognition if you're gonna do more edits later.

Ok, so, select first stack splitter and use this settings:
Caption: put panel name here

Forced layout
Enable padding

Left: 0
Top: $sub(%_height%,45)
Width: %_width%
Height: 45

Padding
Left: 3
Top: 0
Right: 3
Bottom: 0

Now, select the second PSS and use this:
Caption: put panel name here

Forced layout

Left: 0
Top: 0
Width: %_width%
Height: $sub(%_height%,45)

You should have ideal bottom section now, without any wasted space. Your seekbar and artist name will be messed up tho. To fix this, right click where the artist name is, select splitter settings.

Select Seekbar on Panel List and use this settings
Left: 15
Top: 0
Width: $sub(%_width%,30)
Height: 15

Now go to Script -> Per Track and replace your $drawtextex with this:
$drawtextex($if2(%artist%,by Unknown Artist) - $if2(%title%,Unknown Track),18,23,$sub(%_width%,36),%_height%,58-58-58,hcenter end_ellipsis)

amazing foobar theme mainly because its simple. best one around.
i am wondering how can i switch those (playlist lyrics bio) tabs to the right side and on top of each other like:
________________
|_______________|
|                              |
|                            PL
|                            LY
|                            BI
|                              |

kinda like that jam 1.3 by FlipOut69 flipout69.deviantart.com/art/J…
jam has its buttons on the left. its also a nice theme but a bit too much of content.

i want to implement thouse tabs on the right side bar, but i cant since the tab script is somewhat odd.
i hope you understand and willing to help me by posting a script.
Reply
:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015
Totally possible but I'll need to change splitter placement.

Also, a question. Do you prefer to have PL/LY/BIO text strings or icons? I'm asking because I might add it as a second config for people to switch to. It's a damn good idea to have stuff in the sidebar.
Reply
:iconklavber:
klavber Featured By Owner Edited Jan 12, 2015
icons similar to jam 1.3 but text is good to because its easier to add new tabs
you deside :) (try both if you got some spare time)

edit:
also... i find this theme very easy to add new tabs, the script is not that large meaning this is a very good start for a rookie theming, but still a bit hard for a n00b.
others have diff type of panel buttons that are somewhat easy to move around, you use a very interesting tab buttons and cant figure how to move them around.

:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015
I'm gonna try to find what's good lookin'. I'll probably stay with text as it's, as you've said before, easier to add new tabs.
And indeed, tab script is not that hard to edit, but still, it's a mess. It's a remnant from days when I was new to theming. :)

VERONiCA2 and RumiaNekk are using my new tab script. It's easier to edit, it's using different variables and overall, it's cleaner ;)

:iconklavber:
klavber Featured By Owner Edited Jan 12, 2015
Dont like VERONiCA2 because it looks like many other MP
RumiaNekk is good and has nice tab icons

i try to make my foobar fast, small/compatible and quick to manipulate.
it is mostly around lossless and mp3 tagging, converting. i made myself a true pro-like player but.... its ugly and im using it for a long time that way. trying to make a switch but there is no theme that is minimal purrrty and fast for my taste. your RumiaNekk and SP8 are close to my taste.

here
i.imgur.com/ZiCEm1I.jpg
quite ugly but fast. left side is for the tabs and the right is always visible (playlist)

ill post a raw concept pic here what i would like to make:....
i.imgur.com/BhlleUi.jpg
hehe using MSP

Edit:
the tabs open area could be there on top or rather to the left aside to the playlist...
and yes, just checked the RumiaNekk script and in the first look it seems better. NICE

slowboyfast Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015
Well, I tried to keep her similar to VERONiCA1 (which was really different from other players, no window border, tabs on top), but still, her current state is much more useful and streamlined. She does the same thing other players do (bio, art imgs, meta info, tag editing, tree browsing, etc. - better than iTunes or WinAmp imo) but she's also clean of bloat (last.fm stats, million of different playlist components, Graphic Browser, waveform seekbars, etc.). I also think, she's nicer than most of ugly flat themes on DA. I still don't get why people are so hyped over flat stuff. It's so friggin ugly.

If it comes to compact players, I love to use them on smaller screens. Rumianekk, SP8 and Spy (the theme SP8 is based on) are ideal for laptops. On a large screen, like my EIZO gaming monitor, I like to have bigger stuff (VERONiCA2), it's easier to see what's playing, it's easier to edit and browse. It's all matter of personal preference tho :)

i.imgur.com/BhlleUi.jpg <-- this looks good, like a worthy successor of SP8 (SP10 may be a good name, after all, next Windows is gonna be 10). Also, do I see Netsky 2 there? Great choice of music :D

''It's so friggin ugly.'' ---LOL, that bad?

i see your point about screen sizes.


you like the concept, fell free to adopt it to 'SP10' if you want, ill make a better pic tomorrow.

i just want the tabs on the side since its really good/fast/also NICE. either in text or image (looking at the concept image tabs looks nice but still... easy text for the masses) when you make something about the tabs on the side let me know (PM). im following you slowboy (nothing sexual).

Is it possible for the search bar to include the "comment" field of music files? I'm not sure if that makes sense, so I'll explain my exact scenario. I have a bunch of music in different directories all with "anime" in the comment field (tagged in MP3tag). I'd like to be able to search for "anime" and have all the results appear.

:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014
Yeah, it's possible :)

Open up preferences, go to Media Library -> Quick Search.
Now, you should see Tag section in the middle. Click on genre tag and do this:
1. Change name from Genre to Comment
2. Change %genre% to %comment% and click "add" (genre search will remain intact)
3. Check "context menu"

How it should look in the end:

1. Click on the divider, select splitter settings

3. Click on Script tab, select PerTrack and delete everything. Copy and paste this (DA replaced some parameters with emoticons but it's still working, just copy'n'paste)
4. Click on PerSecond and delete everything. Copy and paste this.

Now it should take up whole available space :)

Really dunno why people have problems with this on WIndows 8.1. I use it myself and this skin works flawlessly (yet again, thank you slowboy. Still the best skin around!).

As for the dissapearing library icon that happens whenever you open a music file/album by itself. When launching foobar2000 via its .exe the library icon is there.

Well, this skin was made to blend into new windows environment (not metro, just new aero-less desktop). I was using it a long time on my Win 8 notebook and I had no problems. Sadly, my notebook fried itself and I'm unable to check how does it perform on 8.1.

As for disappearing library icon, its fixed :)
