Love the skins. There is something i want to ask though. Is there a way to view the playback queue ?
florosus Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2015
 +FlipOut69 I'm using the red skin and 1440p. I have a white rectangle in the middle of my top bar. Anything I could do to remove it?

My favourite skin ever! I just have one problem: as I go to the "now playing" panel, I don't have a cover, but I have a small one below, next to the stars. Did I messed up something?
snowkingdev Featured By Owner May 23, 2015
Best skin!

It is possible to to stretch the album art to fully display it if the pictures have different sizes?
filthyvulture Featured By Owner May 29, 2015
I would like to see that option too

Thank you very much. The theme is easy to install and awesome !!

Hi!!! I love your skin and i've been using it since it was released. Thanks for your job!

I would like to change the playcount in "Now Playing" view to show playcount from lastfm instead of local. It is possible?

Thank you so much!

the integration keeps saying the API account has been suspended
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Edited Apr 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
This issue has been solved, go to my OneDrive folder -> Jam v1.3 -> skins -> jam -> scripts -> download common7.js and replace your current file with that one :)
hotwheels14901 Featured By Owner Edited Apr 30, 2015  Student General Artist
hey now it keeps popping up tons of these dialogs im forced to use itunes instead because i look away for 10 minutes and 5 of these dialogs have popped up
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
have you tried to untick 'always ask before opening the file' dialog?
hotwheels14901 Featured By Owner May 25, 2015  Student General Artist
got it fixed, moved the .exe out of the foobar program files and into my user folder, right clicked the file and clicked properties, then clicked unblock and clicked ok (doing this with it still in the program files folder doesnt seem to work), then moved it back to where it was, no more dialogs
hotwheels14901 Featured By Owner May 2, 2015  Student General Artist
i would be fine if it only popped up 1 dialog every time i started foobar2000 but multiple dialogs in minutes is really annoying
hotwheels14901 Featured By Owner May 1, 2015  Student General Artist
yes i have and every time i do it pops up 2 more of those dialogs
hotwheels14901 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015  Student General Artist
thanks it works ^_^
JoeyAsagiri Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2015
Why is it that the Biography messes up and just randomly switches the artist names around? For example the artist info of one band is actually the one of a completely different one and I can't seem to find a way to fix it, it seems Foobar just takes the wrong artist name when searching on or wikipedia even though I just have %artist% put into the Artist Field Remapping tab.
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Edited Mar 31, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Right-click at the image -> selection mode -> please check it's "prefer now playing". 
gdk42 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2015
Hi. Just to confirm that I have the same issue with FLAC files. Embedded Album art does not display in the Collection album view, although it does show up in the Now Playing view (works fine with AAC (m4a) files though :)).

Also, in the Now Playing view the album art is enlarged and cropped, so never shows the complete cover. All my album covers are embedded and sized at 500x500.
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
In Collection tab, you need external image (not embedded image in your music) in the same location as your music.

Please upload a screenshot of the cropped art. 
Aztek92 Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2015
Covers from FLAC files don't work :c Any workaround/fix?
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Edited Mar 31, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
If it's embedded in your tracks it should displayed in Now Playing tab. However in the Collection tab, you need external image on the same folder as your music.
embambo Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2015
Brilliant work, thank you!

Is it possible to set the covers from external image and cycling?

This maybe related to expired API, will be fixed in the next update.
ImJustHereForSkins Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2015
Like the skin, but I have a couple of recommendations:

In the 'Now Playing' pane, the album art shouldn't be cut off at all. It should be dynamically resized to fit the size of the window. This is the biggest issue.

My other suggestions are about the 'Collection' pane. In the 'Artist' section, there should be some way to toggle between 'Album Artists' and 'Artists' in general. I never browse by individual artists - always album artists. Also, Artist photos aren't showing up for me.
Thanks for the awesome skin! Love the style.
dosetsu Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2015
On the collection part, because the "collection" itself isn't anything other than a playlist - while still under the library click on album, then click on the artist button to get to behave you want it to. Well, that's what I had to do at least. It isn't pretty, but it works.

The skin is really nice. Any chances of getting podcatcher to work with it?
hiroki01 Featured By Owner Edited Feb 12, 2015
hi there! i have a question regarding the album art display area. a portion of the album art seems to be "cut off" below as you can see here:

the full album art looks like this:

apparently this isn't a matter of aspect ratio, since regardless of the dimensions of the album art (even rectangular once), they are all 'forced' into a square without any cropping. the problem is that the display area in my foobar when maximized is not a square, and a portion of the album art gets "pushed" below the screen. is there a way to rectify this, either (i) by moving the left side of the "Now Playing" sidebar further to the left by approx 100px to make the display area into a square; or (ii) by resizing the album art to fully occupy the slightly rectangular display area, instead of resizing it into a square.

thank you!

(btw i'm using v1.2; i did try the v1.3 skin but this problem still persists)

hey it seems that i was having api key issues with trying to track and love songs with  i wanted to update the script for it but i was unable to.

so i just decided to get an api key for myself and replace it in the common7.js

i hope this wont cause trouble somewhere in the near future
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Edited Jan 27, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for the info! I'll look into it :)
BootyBump Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2015
I am having issues with the font size. I upgraded from 1.2 and my font size was much enlarged. I reinstalled Foobar2000 and installed the skin again from scratch but it made no difference. No amount of changing font sizes in the prefs changes anything. Most of them are set at Segui 8 or 9 but even if I change it to 24px it makes no difference.

Any suggestions?
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Edited Jan 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
It's because of your high DPI settings (>100%), and v1.3 only supports 100% DPI for now.
If you want to change the font size manually, try to edit them from splitter settings (right-click from any blank space) and each panel's settings (right-click at corresponding panel).
BootyBump Featured By Owner Edited Jan 27, 2015
Ah, that had crossed my mind but I thought I would have been able to change it in Foobar settings.

Could you please tell me which section in the script deals with the files in the playlist? I have found the Now Playing section but it doesn't seem to affect the loaded files, only the Now Playing title. I have managed to decrease all title font sizes to 7 (and any other close to that) that I can see in the script and it looks better aside from the Now Playing playlist which doesn't seem affected by anything I do.

FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
It's on different settings, right-click on the song title -> settings -> ELP settings will appear.
Edit the font size from script tab -> track list & per second sub-tabs.
BootyBump Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015
Thanks! All sorted now :)

Only other thing (which I had an issue with from the start before the font issue) is that the last track loaded in a playlist won't often register a mouse click. It does if you click around the top of the individual file container. This also happens with the red X (exit button) where the event seems to not fire correctly when the mouse is coming in from the right.

Could you please suggest where I can manipulate the hot areas for these?

In addition, how/where do I resize the playlist's individual file loaded containers as now there is a gap at the bottom of the playlist?

OtakuRGo Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2015
Amazing skin! I love it so much! The only issue I have with it is that it doesn't seem to update my recently listened tracks list on my page. No big deal really, but if you could help me out I'd really appreciate it.
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
You mean it doesn't scrobbling normally? If yes, it's has nothing to do with the skin,
scrobbling uses audioscrobbler component and the problems may comes from your network for example, or from the side which I encountered few days ago IIRC.

Hi, I stumbled upon your skin and am really loving it!
One question though, is it possible to make the search function recognize the album artist tag? I have a plethora of albums with various artists and it's quite a drama to find them.

Use "%album artist% IS ..."
EveryOtherUser Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014
Thank you  very much for this wonderful skin. I just started using Foobar2000, and I already liked the Foodeck skin, but this one is even a lot nicer :-)
However, I have 2 problems:

1) In the artist information/lyrics/track information panel, it says that no artwork has been found, even though the right thumbnails are shown in the other views. I have covers in every folder - either named cover.jpg (e.g., for albums with various artists) or "album_name".jpg. How do I have to adjust this, that it works properly?

2) At the artist information, I would like to integrate a Spotify-search instead of the grooveshark-search (which is not working in Germany). I have seen this been done in the Lux-Skin by markkoenig and I know the search-string. However I can't make it work, so that spotify is opened out of foobar. Can you help me with this?    
EveryOtherUser Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2014
Alright, I solved the first problem on my own - I had to rename quite a few covers, then it worked properly. However, with the second problem I still need help...
