*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

  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

So many skins for foobar. Didnt even know there are skins for it here. Great work

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?

"Can you add somehow a Stop button?" ===> already done, just DOUBLE click Play/Pause button to Stop playing track ;)
lordsilver14 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2013
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) and in the quicksearch, the font is a bit, too big.
2. How could I add a " - " between the artist and the song ? 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 Úditing 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 Nov 24, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
scrollbar depends of the windwos theme (visual style), ti change it, change the window visual style. HTH

Br3tt, how could I add a scrollbar on the right-hand side?
Br3tt Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
right click on playlist, enter settings of ELPlaylist, there is an option to hide/show the scrollbar.
CorpseJanitor Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
I can't seem to find this option you speak of.
