The Spy by slowboyfast The Spy by slowboyfast
:icongentlemenpls:Seriously! Go ahead! Meet the spy!:iconmentlegenpls:
Tested on 1.1.14a - 1.3b4, 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:
(6-12-2013)***UPDATE*** Missing Libman icon is fixed. Reload your .fcl!

(10-4-2013)***UPDATE*** New playback order script & icons, reworked "now playing" script.

(30-3-2013)***UPDATE*** Coverflow is using skinned scrollbar, dropdown toolbar is transparent.

(6-2-2013)***UPDATE*** Removed big header and big text styles. Text clipping errors solved, reworked now playing info.

(6-12-2012)***UPDATE*** Flat styles added! Skin looks pretty neat on Win8 now. FLAT STYLE IN ACTION! :pointr: fav.me/d5oa9pe

(24-11-2012)***MINOR BUGFIX*** Missing font included!

(24-11-2012)***UPDATE*** Reworked control buttons, added playback order menu, added custom volume icon, added Libman dropdown panel (icon next to the open button), removed LibManager and rest of the tabs, you can now add your own tabs, instructions inside the rar.
There's a small bug where LibMan icon doesn't show up when foobar is opened by multimedia hotkey on your keyboard or when audio file is double clicked (don't know why). I'm working on a fix, for now, if LibMan icon's missing try opening foobar (directly) by double clicking it's icon. Works for me, should work for you.

:bulletred:Installation - how to:

1. Install Ubuntu Condensed font (Ubuntu-C.ttf)
2. Copy everything to your Foobar2000 folder
3. Launch Foobar, choose Columns UI
4. Open preferences (CTRL+P) go to Display Columns UI import one of the .fcl files (skins folder)
5. (OPTIONAL) Go to main windows in prefs and set min/max window size to 354x628

: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 folder :pointr: spy)

:bulletgreen:Search icon – setting up „search dots”:

1. Click on the magnifying glass icon
2. Go to Options :pointr: Custom Bitmap
3. Point it to „search.bmp” (skins folder :pointr: spy)

:bulletgreen:Enable/disable scrollbars in libman dropdown panel:

1. Right click on libtree inside libman 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)


:bulletblue:PICTURES ABOUT HOW TO ADD/REMOVE TABS INSIDE THE RAR!

***IMPORTANT*** About :iconbr3tt:'s CoverFlow:
1. Change colors and fonts in foobar2000 Preferences ColumsUI
2. Some Settings (*USER_xxx ones only) can be changed in window Properties
3. Middle click on cover > Send album tracks to specific playlist "CoverFlow View"
4. Keyboard keys: left/right arrows, Home/End, page up/down, spacebar to set focus on the centered album, Return key to play
5. Type as you Search feature: type artist name with keyboard to automatically set the focus on its first album
6. Change between views, coverflow and flat modes available
7. Think about it >> Adjust size/effects of the panel according to your cpu capacities to avoid bad performance

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

Thanks to:
:iconfanco86: for volume and seekbar scripts.
:iconbr3tt: for CoverFlow script.
:iconrevolvist: for some nice ideas!


Feel free to mod it. :)

Hey! Nice skin - slim and stylish! I really like it!
But one thing is missing for me: I want to see the rating in the playlist (like the length of the songs), but I couldnīt add such a column to the playlist. In another post you said that one has to do it manually in the ELPlaylist settings. The problem is that I donīt have a clue how to do it, so I really would appreciate your help. If I could even rate the songs by clicking on the rating-stars or whatever (no shortcuts or context-menu needed), that would be awesome! :)
Keep up the good work!

Is it possible to add a visualizer along the bottom of the player with this theme? How do I do this? Whenever I try to add anything, everything overlaps and got broken and forced to reset foobar.

When you're adding new panels, they will overlap. You need to assign new layout values in panel stack splitter (PSS). Follow the pictures included inside the rar. They explain how to get rid of this problem.

Currently, I don't know how to add vis at the bottom coz I don't have a PC (writing from my iPhone). I'll let you know how to change things as soon as I'll get new computer up and running.

Hey nice skin, did do some modifications. But I'm having one problem the tracklist does not sort correctly at start up. Do you have any idea how to fix that?
Reply
:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner May 30, 2013
Do you experience it when using library tree filters? Coz libtree plugin don't want to store it's config inside .fcl and has to be set manually.
If yes, look here >>[link], just set your view filters like this

If it won't help, check ELPlaylist sort options:
right click on playlist>settings>grouping tab
It should look like this:
Group format: %album%
Sort format: %album% - %tracknumber% - %title%
But I bet it's not connected with ELP, I already fixed that, It must be libtree plugin. Gonna update it as soon as I'll find something better.

Okey, my modifications created a new problem. I added Lyrics Show 3 to my tabs and want to change the background colour to black but the problem is that the text gets its colour from the theme which is black too. I tried changing the settings in the colours tab to custom but that messed up the Libtree lay-out.

Wow. I've been using V1 for a while and didn't even know this existed until just now. It looks great, but I am experiencing an annoying problem with immediate crash messages. I am using WSH 1.5.6, I have tried reloading .fcl files, and I've tried restarting from the Foobar icon, but every time I start The Spy V2 I get a CRASH message where the Library Icon should be.
Also, when when I hover over the volume control it crashes as well, so I end up with a player that looks like this:

Reply
:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
V2 has some major changes in scripting and folder structure, that's why you get all those crash errors.

Try this:
1. switch back to DUI (default)
2. delete skins folder (or just all spy stuff if you're using other skins)
3. unpack v2 files and components (overwrite them if needed), check spy folder for 1.h, 2.h and PBO folder
4. switch back to CUI (columns)
5. load fcl
6. ???
7. PROFIT

In the end, it should look like this [link] (flat version in my case)

I'm a newbie in foobar and I've got a few questions that I hope you can help me resolve:
1.- I need to show (in the Header) the comments tag, right under the album's name
2. I also want the composer tag to appear in every track
A bog THANKS for this theme !!

:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
It's a little bit tricky, but here you go:
Right click anywhere on playlist > settings > script tab (should be opened already > group header sub section
look for these lines:
$font(Ubuntu Condensed,20,)
If you want to use, for instance, smaller Arial bold font, write (Arial,12,bold)

$drawtextex($get(group_title_date),$sub(%el_width%,100),-1,90,,$get(title_emboss),right vcenter)
$drawtextex($get(group_title_date),$sub(%el_width%,100),-2,90,,$get(title_color_alt),right vcenter)
These two draws text (obviously :D). After you change your font & size, it should be centered already (depends on font). If it's not, change -1 and -2 to align it, remember that second line is n-1, if your first line is 3(n), second should be 2(n-1).

If you want to change colors, go to Field definition tab and search for text_color_alt and title_emboss. These two are changing color for the whole header. If you want to change color only for dates, you'll have to make some coding!

Also, make sure to check ELPlaylist help on HydrogenAudio, there's a bunch of example scripts and how-to's :)

Feel free to mod my skins as much as you want, if you still need help, just send me a note! :)

slowboyfast Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
It's related to panel stack splitter and panel refreshing. I was loading other skins using dropdown menus & PSS and problem was present (MNLT2 and it's mods).

Problem occurs only when f2k is launched by media player button or double clicking on any audio file.
Launching it from the dock or by clicking on it's icon is fine, no errors at all! :X

I'll try to fix it soon (if it's possible).

Cheers!

Hi, I have tested the new build and I can confirm the same error you are having with the libman icon missing. For me, reloading Spy Classic Grey.fcl, didn't make any difference. I had to reload your Spy - Album Dates.fcl.
Hope that helps.

Finally, a skin with simplicity, style and attention to detail. Have been using a tweaked Panels UI forever, because there was no functional substitute.

There are a few things I'd like to change though, and I'm not certain what I can change myself and what is in your hands:

- Adding more columns to the playlist view. The settings under 'Playlist view' in the Columns UI preferences don't seem to have any influence.
- Adding more, custom tabs to the top. I used playlist tabs for each genre, but because these playlists can be now automatically generated through the 'Lib Manager', I don't need them anymore.
I would like to be able to switch between genres quickly though, without having to go to the Lib Manager. Another solution would be to also have the manager at the side of the screen.
- Being able to customise the looks of the fold-out headers. What I'm absolutely missing is the year of release; this should be big and obvious. The style for the date used here looks great to me: [link]

And some small stuff: While the play arrow in the header is fucking great, the one next to the song could be more perfect. Something like a styled dot or whatever. And the song controls at the bottom don't really seem to fit with the rest: they don't go 'into the surface'. I'd also like to have them a bit bigger, but I'm always using foobar fullscreen on 1920x1080, so go figure. Lastly: is there a way to change the key bindings? The best thing would be to bind play and pause to the same key, say spacebar.

Next to that, I really love your skin and CoverFlow, and with some small adjustments, I'll probably be using this for a long time!

Hey, thanks! I was waiting for a comment like this for ages! Finally someone who can tell me what should I improve.

-I'm not certain what I can change myself and what is in your hands
Well, you can change nearly everything, as long as you know how to use panel stack splitter and formatting in ELPlaylist ;)

- Adding more columns to the playlist view. The settings under 'Playlist view' in the Columns UI preferences don't seem to have any influence
Since skin is using ELPlaylist instead of standard NGPlaylist, Columns UI can't manage it's settings. You must define new fields manually in ELp settings.

- Adding more, custom tabs to the top. I used playlist tabs for each genre, but because these playlists can be now automatically generated through the 'Lib Manager', I don't need them anymore. I would like to be able to switch between genres quickly though, without having to go to the Lib Manager. Another solution would be to also have the manager at the side of the screen.
It's possible to add up to six tabs right now (will include "how to" images soon). I'm gonna increase this number, it's on the to-do list :) I don't really like LibMan, already trying to make it "something better", dunno, a dropdown window / side panel.

- Being able to customise the looks of the fold-out headers. What I'm absolutely missing is the year of release; this should be big and obvious. The style for the date used here looks great to me: [link]
I must say, that header you linked is awesome, I think I'm gonna "borrow" the date style.

-While the play arrow in the header is fucking great, the one next to the song could be more perfect. Something like a styled dot or whatever
I was thinking about the orb or diamond thingy.

-And the song controls at the bottom don't really seem to fit with the rest: they don't go 'into the surface'. I'd also like to have them a bit bigger, but I'm always using foobar fullscreen on 1920x1080, so go figure.
Well, I'm gonna rework control buttons, I didn't put much effort in them (simple gradients). I'm sittin on 2560x1024 and size was ok on my res, but I can make them bigger, that's no problem.

-Lastly: is there a way to change the key bindings? The best thing would be to bind play and pause to the same key, say spacebar.
There's a section in foobar prefs -> keyboard shortcuts. You can assign any key you want to any action you want.

You can send me a screenshot with suggested changes, that would be helpful.
Cheers mate!

Thanks for the reply! I've made a screenshot of my config now with some added comments: [link]

New stuff:
It would be awesome if the headers also folded back.
I think the coverless covers draw too much attention. I'm planning to make a new image myself anyway, so I could send you that.
A few custom things don't work for some reason, such as the scrollbar and selection.
Some more play order options would be nice.

And a dropdown lib manager would be absolutely great.
You'll also see that I removed reflection and gloss from the covers and made them bigger, which I think is more 'pure', but that's preference. I did notice that they don't go bigger than between 200 and 300 pixel. You know why that is?

And damn, it's 5 AM here.
