VERONiCA 1.2.2 by slowboyfast VERONiCA 1.2.2 by slowboyfast
:new: I started working on VERONiCA v2. Check WIP here. VERONiCA v1 will recieve her last update when I release v2. Mainly bugfixes and few last color themes for people who decide to stay on v1. Cheers! :new:

:bulletgreen: 1.2.2 update is here! iSABELLE is now another "bright" preset. Details pane is now a real deal.

:bulletblue: Installation manual can be found here: "A Quick Guide to VERONiCA".

:bulletred: This theme was designed and tested on f2k v1.2b4 - v1.3.2 (works fine on portable edition).

:bulletred: If your AV is bitching about trojans, worms or atom bombs inside the archive, ignore it or get a non paranoid AV. It's just UI_hacks component which is totally safe.

:bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletblue: VERONiCA (default blue) - white frame, black playlist and panels, blue accents
:bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletpink: PEGGiE (default pink) - steel frame, black playlist and panels, pink accents

2013-11-11: ***1.0 INITIAL RELEASE***

:bulletred: ***IMPORTANT*** I didn't include WinAmp files for Shpeck because Deviantart doesn't allow to have .exe files in our deviations. It's probably against WinAmp license too.

:bulletgreen: To install visualisations for Shpeck:
1. If you're on Windows 7 and up, you'll need to install DX9 first, download it from MSDN.
2. Download vis pack. Grab it here.
3. Unpack (RAR, WinZIP, 7Zip),
4. Drop unpacked folder inside your f2k installation dir,
5. Open prefs and navigate to VisualisationsShpeck,
6. Find "Winamp directory" field and point it to downloaded vis pack,
7. Go to Visualisation tab, right click on Shpeck, select which vis you want to start,
8. If Shpeck fails to autostart, just resize the window (it will refresh vis wrapper).

:bulletgreen: No cover – setting up „no cover stub image” (for coverflow):
1. Open prefs,
2. Go to display,
3. Look for "stub image path", point it to "nocover.png" (select one corresponding to your color scheme).

: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!

Thanks to:
:iconmarkkoenig: for "beta testing". He's the man! Be sure to check his awesome work!
:iconbr3tt: for CoverFlow script.

Love the skin, been using it for a while now. I was just wondering if there was a way to have the cursor follow playback without changing out of mini mode and click the Now Playing button?
slowboyfast Featured By Owner 5 days ago
Open up preferences -> Playback -> look for "cursor follows playback" checkbox -> tick it :)

Thanks so much, works perfectly!

The page for V2 can't be found! :(

I really want to try it as well because a Folder view and a good looking scroll bar is essential for me. All the best man, you make phenomenal skins.
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014
Fixed. DA broke linking in description again.

Wonderful theme. I have used many but choose this for my new system. I would like to scale down mini mode by about 50%. How would I go about doing this. Thank you for the theme and any assistance. Also, that Windows 9 theme is fucking brilliant. 
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014
You need to edit some scripts to make it smaller. I'd guide you how to do this but I don't have time currently.
dmarbury Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2014
Still my goto skin. And although Im not getting bored of this skin of anything but I can't wait to be able to use V2.0!! Would you kindly give us an update on how things are coming along? Maybe a ballpark estimate on a time frame for release? Let me be clear I in NO way mean to come off so impatient as to tell you to hurry up or any of that rude nonsense. Just maybe a few words along the lines of how you feel its coming along will suffice.

Thanks so much, in advance!!

PS: If you're open to any type of suggestion at all regarding features or skin color combinations, if I ever come across any thing would it be okay if I were to PM you about them? Even if you werent to use even a scratch of anything I said; a second opinion can normally only be beneficial; depending on the person giving the advice :)

slowboyfast Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2014
Dude, if you have any ideas, PM me straight away :)
As for progress, I didn't do much last week as I'm also working on this.
If it comes to ETA, I honestly don't know. I need to finish base color first, each other color scheme will take me about 1-2h to create just like in v1 (maybe faster, because v2 is not a coder's nightmare).

Hello this is a great theme. Unfortunately when I use it with my laptop's 3200 x 1800 resolution everything looks tiny to the point of being unusable. I was wondering if there is any way to fix this.

Thank you.
