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 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 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

- 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!)

all is fine, you should explain with more accuracy your broblem exactly

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.

This is so fucking hard and confusing to do...
Hagar1200 Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2014
NICE...Really NICE.

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?
Hagar1200 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014
Nice, very nice and almost perfect.

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?

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.
