: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.

Is the messed up text and the occasional wsh error due to the fact that I installed into a portable version or because of Vista or something else?

To be honest, I don't know the cause as I never experienced it on my PC. You are maybe the third person that has this problem. And it's certainly not Vista, as it happened on W7 and W8.

Jesus bro, totally forgot about you :)

To make your playlist viewing folder structure, you need to edit sorting in library tree:
Prefs -> Media Library -> Library Tree

Then, select Sort by folders and double click it.
It's sorting like this by default:
[%date%] %album% [%discnumber%] [%tracknumber% ] %artist% [%album artist%] %title%

You need to edit it like this:
[%album artist%] %artist% [%date%] %album% [%discnumber%] [%tracknumber% ] %title%

This way, it will sort by %album artist% tag (it will look just like in folder view), if %album artist% is not present, it will look for %artist% tag. Simple as that. :)

Does that consider an album have the same artist for all tracks?
Because this is what I get:
i.imgur.com/ZcSm3qD.jpg

Lots of my music are Japanese indies/doujin, I organize them into doujin circle/group -> album -> tracks, and most of them have different artists composing each track in an album, and they become messed up like that. Is there any way to strictly group them by folders (1 album = 1 folder) as they are in explorer?

Also, I just realized that some tracks are even missing their artists even though I've edited the info using foobar in metadata properties before and the contributing artists are still there in explorer.

Is possible add a tab with the menu list as Amethyst theme?
Reply
:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2014
Yes it's possible, but you need to replace script on each tab (library, details, etc) :)

You need to right click on preferences button -> select splitter settings (2nd from bottom) -> script tab.

Now look for this:

//--PREFS
$gradientrect($sub(%_width%,212),0,99,15,$get(button_higrad),$get(button_lograd),)
$drawrect($sub(%_width%,211),5,97,1,$get(button_hishade),)
$drawrect($sub(%_width%,211),23,97,1,$get(button_loshade),)
$drawrect($sub(%_width%,193),5,1,19,$get(button_frame),)
$drawroundrect($sub(%_width%,213),4,100,20,3,3,0-0-0-0,$get(button_frame),)
$drawtextex(P         Preferences,$sub(%_width%,208),3,86,26,$get(text_color_s1),hcenter vcenter)
$textbutton($sub(%_width%,208),2,86,26,P         Preferences,P         Preferences,Command:File/Preferences,fontcolor:$get(text_color),fontcolor:$get(text_color_h))

and replace it with this:

//--PREFS
$gradientrect($sub(%_width%,212),0,99,15,$get(button_higrad),$get(button_lograd),)
$drawrect($sub(%_width%,211),5,97,1,$get(button_hishade),)
$drawrect($sub(%_width%,211),23,97,1,$get(button_loshade),)
$drawrect($sub(%_width%,193),5,1,19,$get(button_frame),)
$drawroundrect($sub(%_width%,213),4,100,20,3,3,0-0-0-0,$get(button_frame),)
$drawtextex(P         Preferences,$sub(%_width%,208),3,86,26,$get(text_color_s1),hcenter vcenter)
$textbutton($sub(%_width%,208),2,86,26,P         Preferences,P         Preferences,Command:View/Popup Main Menu,fontcolor:$get(text_color),fontcolor:$get(text_color_h))

And that's it. If you click on preferences button, you'll get this little dropdown menu, just like in Amethyst.

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 :)

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).

Thank you slowboyfast. Been running Veronica foobar2000 since April. Very nice interface with your inclusion of Last.fm scrobbler. :)

The Shpeck visualization does not run within the Veronica Visualization window, but the Shpeck MilkDrop visualization window does run outside of Veronica on the desktop. I'm running Win7 x64. No complaint, just an observation and comment about my particular installation.

Downloaded, but have yet to install Veronica 5/9/2014.

Got visualizations running within foobar2000. Milkdrop won't autostart, but I just go to Preferences>Shpeck>Milkdrop>Start/Stop. Then it starts on the desktop. Then I go into the Visualizations panel>Add panel>Visualizations>Shpeck, mouse click on the desktop playing Milkdrop, then tap 'Esc' key, and Milkdrop runs in the newly created Visualizations Shpeck panel. Then I Close the original Shpeck panel that is still blank (except for the word Shpeck), and Milkdrop fills the Visualizations panel. Have to redo this operation everytime I reopen foobar2000, but hey.....it is almost looking the way I wanted it. :)
Will see if I can get three panels in one 1. Visualization, 2. Lyrics, 3. Playlist. Where I can mouse click on any of the three sections to maximize that particular section as the others disappear.

After starting MilkDrop in Preferences>Shpeck>Milkdrop>Start/Stop, it does start on the desktop. Then I go to the Visualizations (Shpeck) panel and close it, then AddPanel>Shpeck. Then click on the desktop Milkdrop and push esc key and MilkDrop plays in the Visualization Window.  :)

Finally got local lyrics to work in the "Details" panel without having to search every time. Preferences>Tools>Lyric Show 3>Lyric Searching --- Moved "Local file Search" to the top, highlighted it >Properties ---Lyric filename format:checked Enable built-in artist-title search, with Custom filename format %title%.txt. AND Search paths: D:Users\m\Music\%artist%\%album%\%title%.txt.  :)

I just wanted to say this is the best skin I've seen yet for Foobar. Great functionality with great style, I can totally see an improvement from Amethyst to this.

Only minor niggle: I wish the song (pause, skip, stop) buttons on the bottom right had more contrast with the background. I also wish the volume and progress bar at the bottom required less precision.

Great work.

How would I go about having the group header update the artist data for every track?  The artist metadata for the first track stays present even when different songs are playing.
Reply
:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2014
Group headers cannot be updated per second like track titles. Having VA or Various Artists in %album artist% tag field helps.
Alternatively, you can try to change sorting options (r click -> group/sort -> artists). It will create separate header for each artist on playlist because it's reading %artist% field instead of %album artist%.
Reply
:icondrmorningwood:
DrMorningWood Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2014
To clarify, even when edited to use the artist metadata (instead of album artist), the group header still uses the artist metadata of the first track for every track in the playlist. 
Reply
:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2014
Group header is reading %album artist% field. If there's no data in there, it will pick up %artist% data from the first track and it will stay like this for the whole album.

If your album is a multiple artist thing, put Various Artists or VA as an %album artist% tag and it should fix itself.

But if you're talking about playlist with multiple artist and different albums which are shown under one header, right click on any item on your playlist, select "Group/Sort by..." and pick by "artist/albums" or "artist/tracks".

Hello Sowboyfast!
Awesome skin! congratulations!!

I have only one issue, maybe i just didnt find or figure out how to do it, and due to the way i listen to music, i would like to be able to do.

In the library, i use the "Sort by folder" view, then i see all my folders, which are the name of the artist, when click the arrow to drop down, it show me the subfolder, which are each disc, but then i dont have/see an arrow to see which songs are inside the album i want to listen.

most of the time i want to see the songs in the album, and then send to the playlist only the ones i want to listen to.

no matter which view i use, i dont seem to be able to select song to send to playlist, i have to send the disc, and then see if inside is the song i want to listen to, and then delete the others from then playlist.

Thanks in advance!!!

:iconslowboyfast:
slowboyfast Featured By Owner May 28, 2014
Hey,
It can be easily fixed. Open up preferences, go to Media Library > Library Tree and look for "Sort by folders". Double click it and edition window will pop up. 
Now, we are interested in changing view format, so library tree will show us tracks in folder view.

Normally, it looks like this:
$replace(%relative_path%,\%filename_ext%,)

To make it show tracks, we need to add two things:
$replace(%relative_path%,\%filename_ext%,) \ %track%. %title%

Finished product:
sta.sh/01j5khn068pk

After that, you'll be able to send both full albums and single tracks to your playlist. 


Thanks for letting me know about this. I'll incorporate it as a fix in the next update :)
