TECH v1.5.2 by Br3tt TECH v1.5.2 by Br3tt
ColumnsUI config for foobar2000 v1.0+ (v1.5.2 tested with foobar2000 v1.3.2)

Versions History:
v1.0 : Released on 2010-05-02
v1.1 : Released on 2010-05-16
v1.2 : Released on 2010-05-19
v1.3 : Released on 2010-05-27
v1.4 : Released on 2010-07-28
v1.5.0 : Released on 2011-08-26
v1.5.1 : Released on 2011-08-29
v1.5.2 : Released on 2014-05-08

What's new in v1.5.2 ? Just Check the change log file stored in ...skins/tech/ folder

BEFORE INSTALLING, check requirements below

*Cleaning previous Tech Installation
  • If you want to update an existing TECH config, you MUST delete the previous .../skins/tech folder before extracting the new .zip file, otherwize, it could generate some WSH crash later!

*Required Fonts
*Required dependencies
*Installation Notes
  1. Install foobar2000 if not already done (Normal or Portable installation, as you prefer), then :
    • If Normal install done, extract the .zip file into your foobar2000 user profile folder, on Seven it's C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000
    • If Portable install done, extract the .zip file into your foobar2000 program folder, for example C:\My Programs\foobar2000
  2. Run foobar2000
  3. When prompted, select as default interface "ColumnsUI" then OK
  4. Now Tech layout is visible, first your have to configure your media library : use the main menu entry "Library>Configure"
  5. You have to setup Shpeck component: 1st, rename file winamp.xxx to winamp.exe (in the user profile folder), then go to "File>Preference>Visualizations>Shpeck" then Change Winamp Directory with your foobar2000 user profile folder, it contains the fake winamp.exe (just renamed from winamp.xxx). After that an available plugin will appear in the list, configure if you need, click Start/Stop button to active the panel
  6. Installation is now over, you may have to set some other useful features, like "Cursor follows Playback" (menu "Playback") ...

It's that easy :D

*Tips:
- Right click on the ELPlaylist > Group/Sort by ... will give you 4 presets :)
- Try the right click on all items ... there are some useful context menu there ...
- For a smoother scrolling in playlist, disable Pseudo Transparency in ELPlaylist settings (recommended for slow computer or netbooks or simply is playlist is so huge!)

This skin is the most popular Foobar skin of all time from DeviantArt.  I've been using this for several years now.  I still have the Chronflow working.  Bre3tt has this knack for very good color schemes and overall aesthetics.

Request for Br3tt: Can you also create a mini skin that is just a small strip either horizontally or vertically?  The square mini skin still occupies a lot of screen real estate.  Either add a mini skin or replace the current current one will add more functionality to this already popular skin.

However any chance of telling me how to change the text color in the right column? Its to dark and unreadable from the back of the room.

And add context head such as "Date" and rating?

How can I change the font color on the right hand side so its not black and is there an option to show the date field/ratings as well?

Thanx

I really love this foobar2000 config. Makes it look really great. I have spent a lot of time setting it up just the way I want, but I have one issue.

I have changed a lot of font colors to my liking, but I cannot find out how to change one particular font color. It's the one you can see in your main image that greenish/yellow in the top left for "Artist", "Album", and "Title". It seems to also be the same color for the file type info on the right for the format, bitrate, etc, as well as all the left most titles under "Track Info". I really want to change these to red but haven't found out how, any help would be appreciated.

Also, really good job! Favorited for sure.

Hi


Great skin! Again. I was wondering if it is possible to move the wave seek bar from the bottom and place it above the playlist area. So it nestles between the top left and right modules and the playlists.


Cheers merlin

Thanks.
what do you mean by "possible" ?
1. do skinning allow a such layout by modifying the skin scripts and parameters ? => answer is yes
2. could somebody do it ? => someone that have nothing better to do maybe, you'll need to find him 'cause it's not me.

Br3tt Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
With the ColumnUi interface and the PanelStackSplitter component (PSS), you have a command to resize the main window, so depending of the size i code different layout and use the adapted panels for these mini-modes.

If you meaning just resizing main window with mouse or smth, this doesn't work, it just compacting existing graphics of main window, not building new one according to window size, if I will shrink window with, mouse, for example.

Am I doing smth wrong? Sorry for being dummy, but foobar interface is smth completely different for me.

rezise called by clicking a button in PSS, you set the wanted size in the button action in your script ! then according to the size or the display mode if you handle a variable to name the different sizes, you handle what to draw and how!

if you don't understand a word of what i explain, it's because you are not familiar with foobar2000 commands and component PSS commands, you have to learn basics first, ... and i'm not a teacher.

Hi, great work.

I have a correction your install instructions. In Step 5, it should be "user profile folder" rather than "installation folder".

And I have a question. After some fails about settings, I had to reinstall this theme. Shpeck panel worked excellently before my uninstall. After reinstall, it again worked perfectly, except in fullscreen, saying "uanble to create a directx device." and a long message after that. I checked everything, everystep included above, but couldn't find a solution. Any suggestions?

Br33t,

merci du travail. Impatient de voir la v2 !

Sinon 2 questions:

En mode réduit (petit et moyen lecteur) imossible de sortir de "always on top", même si ce n'est même pas coché dans view, c'est un bug ou bien, ça vient de mon côté ?

Enfin, là je pense pas que ce soit un bug, mais je n'y arrive pas, alors saurais-tu me dire comment trier un playlist en cliquant sur les colonnes (titre, artiste, track... ou autre), ça n'a aucun effet chez moi.
J'ai pourtant vu l'option "Enable sorting using column titles" cochée dans playlist view, mais il doit me manquer un bout du puzzle...

Merci à toi.

:iconbr3tt:
Br3tt Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
always on top forcé on mode mini (mon choix)

et les entetes de colonnes ne permettent pas le tri, il faut utiliser le click droit sur la playlist (module ELPlaylist, voir la doc) et utiliser un des pattern de sort/group prédéfinis au préalable par tes soins ou ceux par defaut... sinon il y a toujours le menu EDIT > Sort ...

oui, il faut modifier les paramètre de regroupement 'Group pattern' dans les settings de ELPlaylist (click droit sur la playlist)
doit y avoir un regroupement par artist en plus du regroupement par album (sous-groupe) et du regroupement par disque (sous-sous-groupe!)

C'est gentil, mais je crois que c'est tout simplement impossible pour moi de réussir une telle modification, c'est plus que du chinois, tout ça pour moi. Je suis très tutoriel vidéo, du genre qui explique pas à pas ce que tu dois faire. Là, je m'en sortirai jamais avec si peu de connaissances de base et des infos (certes sûrement très utiles) si générales. Maintenant c'est pas urgent, si un jour t'as 5 mins pour m'expliquer plus en détails, les manips, je serai toujours preneur.

Merci encore.
