I am really kind of stuck installing WMP 12. I had a lot of difficulty because some of the components were newer versions like Lyric Show 2 & Lyric Show 3 but managed all of them in the end with the exception of ....
Quick Search Toolbar. I have installed version 3.4 but as soon as try to import WMP 12.fcl it comes up with the error 'Quick Search Toolbar not installed' but it doesn't give the version that is required.
I cannot get any further without this and the original version foo_uie_quicksearch is now deprecated and replaced with foo_quicksearch. I tried foo_quicksearch 3.2 but get the same error message.
What do I do next? Can you help please.

Are you able to install with the included components? If not I can rebuild with the components you are trying to use.

Hey nrossow isn't there a menu like in default? I mean the menu toolbar with the File, Edit, Help etc functions.

Yep. Go to 'Preferences' > 'Columns UI' > 'Main' check 'Show toolbars' then click 'Reset toolbars' if they don't show up.

I know if this is reported to you. Today, I was playing a mp3 podcast by double clicking on the mp3 file in Windows Explorer. Foobar starts up and play the mp3 but some of the elements are missing from the WMP12 skin such the panels, various buttons at the bottom for the player, etc. It doesn't refresh or fix the screen by switching between other windows. I have to restart foobar by itself. Normally I play all my music using the library.

I have experienced this before. I think it is because Foobar is started 'in' the music files folder, and all the image paths are relative the Foobar's folder. A solution is to make every image path static (starting with C:\Program Files....). The problem here is the paths are different between 32-bit and 64-bit OS's and, since the program is portable, it could be installed anywhere.

Luckily I think most people play from the library too :)

That seem like another simple solution. I would love to get this one last minor issue fix by making two separate versions. Can you use %ProgramFiles% for the image path or you have to use "C:\Program Files\"? Is it easy to change the path by doing a search and replace in the code? If not, can you show me how to do it?

Check your email. I send you the installer.

From what I have tried, you cannot use %programfiles%. The code would need to exported before it can be searched, but it's still easy to do. To try it yourself, right click on any panel and choose 'splitter settings'. All the code is in the script (there are many panels, though). If you can get it to work you can definitely let me know and I'll update a fix.

Before I was going to change path, I find that the foo_uie_panel_splitter uses %ps_foobar2000_path% variable to point to %programfiles%\foobar200\ folder. Here is the document link to it:

[link](foo_uie_panel_splitter)#.25ps_foobar2000_path.25

Can you confirm or test this before I'm going to edit it? Thanks.

I can confirm this works for all the panels, and thanks for the research. However, I cannot get it to work with WSH panel or the global panel settings (the panel background).

Wow!!! This is of my favorite skin now. I have a minor suggestion. The song title display on next to the album art is too short in that space. Is there any chance you might update it so that the song title shows above the seek bar and with the same length as seek bar? If not, can you show me how to do it? Thanks.

No problem, I have most of it done. Do you want any different colors or font types (bold, italic)?

:iconmagic12kenneth:
magic12kenneth Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2011
Sweet!!! I prefer the text to be easy on the eye. My preference is the text color set to black and bold while the text size is similar to the word "details" in this page on the right side.

Playtime

Another small suggestion is to move the playtime so it display after the song title (<playtime> <song title>)

format: hh:mm:ss (current play time)/hh:mm:ss (song length).

Example: 01:20:03/02:32:40

If it is not doable, it would be nice to add song length.

Alright, I tried to get it all.

I used green instead of black, but you can change it by right clicking on the text and choosing 'Splitter Settings'>'Script'>'Per Second' The colors are an r-g-b at the end of the $drawstring lines.

Have fun with it! [Link]

Works perfectly. Now I finally can see the title while playing a song. Thank you so much for your dedication and help.

One more thing... I notice the skin does not save the position of the play panel after I restart Foobar. Is this a design feature? I would like to keep the play panel on all the time even after I restart Foobar. Is this a simple fix or feature to add?

I tried a couple times and it is not working for me. I even uncheck all of the panels. I'm not sure why it's not working if it works on yours ide.

Reading back my instructions seem a little unclear. Make sure the 'Hide panel on startup' box for 'hidden' is checked.

It was simpler than I thought. Right click on the 'Play' tab choose 'Splitter Settings' Under the PanelList choose 'playing', uncheck the box that says 'Hide panel on startup' and apply. Then choose 'hidden', check the same box and apply.

That is the way it was designed, but I'll try and change it for you too as it's a relatively simple fix.

Hello, great skin! Question: When you are At the left library screen, is it possible to have the folder images there, instead of an invisible square with the artist's text? Not really a problem; just wondering.
Reply
:iconnrossow:
nrossow Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2011
I'm not quite sure of what you mean. If you mean in the playlist, then yes. Go to the embedded artwork settings in foobar and add a dynamic path for the folder image. That should make foobar supply the list with the artwork.

Questions/Bug reports (see if you can duplicate this first):

1) Clicking and dragging on the seekbar makes the playback halt, and not play properly unless the song is stopped and started again. I'm playing only lossless (FLAC) files, so could this be an issue with FLAC playback?

2) Are you planning on including a "playback mode" a la the real WMP12? Currently, the button in the lower-right corner does nothing.

3) Obviously, the main window selection/playlist view looks decent, but isn't the same workflow as the real thing. What exactly is used here to display the albums and such, and is it moddable to get it to the WMP 12 workflow?

:iconnrossow:
nrossow Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2011
I'll will look into the first one when I get some time.

As for the others, I am not familiar with a method to change window size, but I will research because I would like to have that.

If you are referring to the list on the left, if is possible but it will look ugly and have limited functionality.

Nice theme. Bugs/suggestions:
- Search icon looks weird (see [link] )
- Controls lack animation - though primary buttons look properly, alas no hover state for buttons like "Stop", "Shuffle", seek and volume bars.
- I've got a grey playlist background, not the blue one like on the screenshot
- Funny bug/feature? - breadcrumb switches mode every few seconds, like the label near cover art
- Blank cover art looks "homemade"
As a side note, "Now playing mode" button seems to do nothing.

Thanks for the feedback.

-The search icon is from a different theme (I'll upload the correct file).
-I can work on adding animations soon.
-As far as I know the background should be applied, I'll look into it.
-It's more of a feature. Originally they were supposed to have function, but buttons aren't supported in PerSecond script.
-This image is included with foobar.

Which button are you referring to?

Did some research into background problem. Playlist and Right panel splitters use this background:
C:\Program Files\Foobar2000\themes\7\background.jpg
While my foobar2k path is:
c:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\ (yes, 64-bit OS)
Quite possibly it will also break with any non-standard install path.

I allowed the path to start in the fb2k directory so the background issue should be fixed. Thanks for the research =]

The button seems to work for me (ie. Change playlists while playing and click the button. It should activate the playing playlist and song)
