Slate 1.2 by Br3tt Slate 1.2 by Br3tt
:new: v1.2 released : bug ("maybe") fixed in playlist tab manager (crash the script with some bad handled fonts)

TIPS
- Show Now Playing by double clicking on status bar
- Stop action by double clicking the Play/Pause button

BEFORE INSTALLING, check requirements below

*Required Fonts
*VIDEO of the full install and settings
    Check it if installation notes below are not enough : [link]

*Installation Notes
  1. Install Foobar (when prompted, select Normal or Portable installation, as you prefer)

  2. When installation process is over, when prompted, RUN foobar2000, then CLOSE it before resuming below

    • If Normal install done, extract the .zip file into your foobar2000 user profile folder, FYI on Seven it's C:\Users\<your_username>\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\

    • If Portable install done, extract the .zip file into your foobar2000 program folder, for example C:\My Programs\foobar2000\

  3. Now, RUN foobar2000

  4. When prompted, select as default interface "ColumnsUI" then OK

  5. Installation is now over, Slate layout is now visible, first your have to configure your media library : click the icon button before the playlist "Library" or use the main menu entry "Library>Configure"

  6. To personalize the QuickSearch icon, click the default one > Options > Custom bitmap > ... browse for the Slate icon (quicksearch_icons.bmp) placed in your foobar2000 folder (program or profile one, depending of your foobar2000 installation mode as discribed step 1.)

  7. Additionnal tasks: configure Shpeck visualisation plugin (File>Preferences>Visualisations>Shpeck). You may have to set some other useful features, like "Cursor follows Playback" (menu "Playback") ...

Enjoy! :D

I like so much this skin, I customized a bit by myself and now it's just fine. As I understand, it's impossible to change the scroll bar without changing the Windows Theme, huh?
I have a little "request". Can you add somehow a Stop button? You have only Previous, Pause, Next. Can you do something like Previous, Pause, Stop, Next big button?

Interesting. You need to make a tutorial for your skin :)), there are a lot of hidden features :)). But still, the idea with two separated buttons for pause and stop is still active. :)

And I have a couple of questions more, I hope you don't mind.
1. How could I change the color of this font (black is a bit too dark) oi40.tinypic.com/20jls48.jpg and in the quicksearch, the font is a bit, too big.
2. How could I add a " - " between the artist and the song oi43.tinypic.com/2kiidw.jpg ? And I can't find how to change the font and colors here, neither.. Maybe make it bigger and make a bit brighter the colors.

changinging colors in 1) => edit the jscript and find the color parameter used in gdiDrawText method used to draw the title format string for the now playing tracks (in menu OPTIONS, "unlock right click" first, then right click text area > "Configure..." to edit the script, i will not help further, i've better things to do to read my 2 years old script and tell you what is the line number to edit and the string to change, you have to search a little bit to get more falimiar with script éditing if you want to custumize things, i hope you understand this pov ;)

in 2), you have to edit the TF script of the ELplaylist panel and as 1); find the color used for the different line text parts (right click playlist > Settings...)

Hey Br3tt, is there any way for me to change the scrollbar to be black? Having it is nice but with it white it can kind of be an eye sore when everything else is dark themed.

Br3tt Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
install a windows theme/visual style that matches black, or add this Filter in a Panel Stack Splitter in order to set its borders hidden (out of range of the Panel Stack Splitter panel). no other way.

Alternatively, is there a way to make two ELPlaylists and have one showing artists and the other albums and their tracks? (Sort of like Itunes navigation...)

I seem to have found a minor issue with regards to sorting via right-click. Album and Folder sorting does not sort it with a A, B, C order in mind. It seems almost random but maintains a specific order. My music folder is sorted A, B, C order and I see for example album named Another Dimensions is AFTER Surfacing Album by Sarah McLachlan. *confused* Is anybody else having this issue?

Feel free to delete the other posts I've written if possible.

Love this! Followed it just as instructed on the video works perfect on v1.1.16. Only gripe is there does not seem to appear to be a play-count anywhere since I'm obsessed with that. Also, I don't think it's normal that I sometimes get some big cpu usage out of this skin?

Never-mind the play-count, did not see it at first, at the end-right of the track title (small number) since it is so tiny.

J'ai essayé de changer la couleur de l'artiste en allant dans Settings > Field Definition puis en modifiant les deux valeurs RGB si j'ai bien compris ? ça ne fonctionne pas il reste noir.
Tu peux peut-être m'aider?

Is there a chance, that you will include a Mood Butto next to the ratings? Most of my Tracks already have this tag and i dont wanna miss it. I saw that another skin from you already has this feature.
Or could anyone explain how to do this by myself? Maybe a little copy / paste elplaylist script? ^^
