- tweaks

1.2.0 :
- Playback Order button now remains good image on restart (memory added)
- New foo_run button added on the top right, named Scaicha, personnaly, i use this foo_run path with it to see my stats "[link]", but be free to link it with what you want !
>>> TAKE CARE : if you want to use the Scaicha path above, you need to declare before a new foo_exvar variable that will contain your username : kameleon_lastfm_username
- Font fix: Added in the archives (main and fonts) the free font Saxmono that i use in the WSH seekbar to display the elpased time - Album List (AL) and Playlist Switcher (PL) panels are now opened in maximized mode by default in the LEFT PANEL
- Added the possibility to hide the vertical scrollbar in AL and PL panels by usinbg a new extended variable (foo_exvar settings) named kameleon_hide_scrollbar_AL_and_PL ==> set it to the value 1 to hide the scrollbar in foo_exvar
- bugs fixed

1.2.1 :
- OPTIMIZED version of KAMELEON ! Elplaylist refresh is 60% faster ! very notable on big playlist load/change, a really big improvement.
- AL, PL and INFO panels in the LEFT main panel are now opened maximized by default for comfort.
- Added a new foo_run button to launch Wikipedia info about the now playing ARTIST. foo_run button name = Wiki / foo_run path command is : "[link](%artist%,' ','_')"
- bugs fixed (File/Open, AL/PL display over other panels fixed, ...)

1.2.2 :
- Bug fixed : sometimes playlist switcher left panel had bad refresh (very annoying) => no more now (btw no more reproduced with the fix)
- Bug fixed : buttons + / - to expand or collapse the playlist ativated too the 'Show now playing command' => removed
- YEAR display in the playlist header : now, long dates are accepted but it still display only the Year (it take by default the 4 digits on the left : 2005-07-24 => 2005)

This is, by far, the best Skin I had and I never could found any like this, with my preferences.

1 Question, I never knew what does mean that small box that is between the Rating Stars and the Song Time. Also I don't know how to use it. What is that box?

Jorchking Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2014
Please author I have a question, this skin is outdated and will have an update? When was the lastest update, 2009?
Br3tt Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
no update planned. for the last update, the info isalready done in the description: "- Update date : 22/03/2009 16h14 GMT+1 (v1.2.0 -> v1.2.1)"
ChaosTherum Featured By Owner May 9, 2014
So out of curiosity would you be against me updating this skin with more recent plugins and whatnot and re-releasing with a link back to you of course. I have spent some time making it work for current foobar and have made some progress. Would love to share it with people.
Br3tt Featured By Owner May 10, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
feel free to share your updated version as "Kameleon Mod by ChaosTherum" when at least you give a link to the original da page.


TheTrueBeast33 Featured By Owner May 4, 2014
I am having the most difficult time trying to get this to work. I downloaded everything that it needed and disabled safe mode on WSH. I load up the text file from your folder and I receive an error message, Scripting Engine Initialization Failed ({19656264-3F55-4712-8233-4B2A999502F0}, CODE: 0x80020101). I'm I making this harder than it seems? I can't get any skin to work for me.
JustTree Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013
This doesn't seem to work with Foobar 1.2.9, any suggestions on what I could do?
Br3tt Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
could you explain the "seem" ?

bt, as the config is old one day it will no more work and no support is available for this config anymore from me, i have other priority and i can't be everywhere, i hope you'll understand that point.
JustTree Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2013

I stopped trying to make it work since I found a better software than foobar and no longer use it. I just thought your artwork was awesome.

I hope what you are doing right now is equally brilliant as this theme :P Cheers!
Jorchking Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013
How can I change the Background?
Jorchking Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013
There is a Way to have differents cover songs on a same folder? In Metro Skin I can Have differents Cover songs on a same folder, How can I change in Kameleon?

armani077 Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2011
Real nice, I am very new to foobar and was wondering, can I change the look of the e.q. to the look of the e.q. in the Exchange 3.5?
Nelielz Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011
Enorme celui là, par contre comment je fais pour modifier l'image en arrière plan ? Genre si je veux pas que ça mette à chaque fois la pochette de l'album de l'artiste que j'écoute, je veux mettre une image personnalisée par exemple.

pudymody Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010

Just wanted to say thanks for a terrific foobar skin. I just made the switch to foobar2000 and this is without a doubt the best skin I've been able to find.

Excellent work!

This config is so good,
faster and much better than Curacao.
Thank you ; )
CLock3 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2009
Amazing work as usual Br3tt :) I loved Curacao, and I just happened to be checking out your gallery to see that you released this. Downloaded it and got it all set up to my liking, and it's amazing. Great job!
jasam Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2009
everytime i run foobar i get these two errors.why is that?
Br3tt Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2009  Hobbyist Interface Designer
chroinflow component issue, try to update your video card drivers to the most recent ones! If pb still there, nothing else to do (except using the .fcl file without the chronflow support, check downloads on my site (Kameleon page)
wizzkid14 Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009
Great theme :D I have one slight problem though the little pop-up box when I hover over a song shows up as just a white box with no writing [link]
