this config contains chronflow ... so a "real" graphic gard is recommended (integrated cause generate problems withe this plugin)

maybe you can try to update your video drivers to the latest ? who knows...

hey man this is FREAKING AMAZING!
THe instructions are easy and you included all the necessary components...
but I am running into a problem, apparently I clicked auto-tag files from freedb and i cant find where to turn it off..and when I do have cover art in the form of folder.jpg the mini-art viewer in the playlist will not see it unless the file is in mp3 format and it is embedded artwork...anyway to fix this? But if not I couldn't care more because this skin is FREAKING AWESOME!

I completely love this skin. Is there anyway to add sorting capabilities to the playlist? I'd like to be able to sort by Album or by Artist or even more so I'd like to be able to sort by Folder. Is there an easy way to do this?
Reply
:iconbr3tt:
Br3tt Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2009  Hobbyist Interface Designer
right click on the playlist and enter ELPlaylist settings, there, you can modify the default sort/group order and in the last tab you can create new sort orders that will be available by just a right click on the playlist ...

it's easy, maybe not for a noob, but it is, just take time.

ok, my comment was before trying the configuration, now i tried and i'm like O.o , really f**ing awesome! gratz!! :D

by the way, you should add a note about importing the config for the updaters from xchange 1.1 (because it's no difference from xchange 1.1 if you don't re-import the configuration :D)
thanks again for the great customization, much appreciated :)

Thanks for the skin. Yours are always my favorites.
But with this update, I have a promblem. see the link.

I have a coverart to album path as folder.jpg that can be seen on chronflow and graphical browser but not on playlist and image section. Not only that album art, some others also can't be shown. Some can, some can't.

Could you let know how i solve this?
