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!)

Wow. Just wow. This is something else. Is that largely PanelStackSplitter code? I wanna find myself good enough to make a skin on this level. You have any pointers to reading material?
