This is awesome. I love the whole UI design. Must appreciate it.
By the way, would you mind me to ask, how you managed to make the "now playing" ELPlaylist follow the nowplaying playlist, rather than the active playlist? This has been on my mind for a while...
Thanks!

Update: Noticed that exporting and importing the settings of ELPlaylist using .elp files could copy the "lock playlist" preference as well, so this must be an option in ELPlaylist plugin.
But I cannot find anything relative in the settings panel, and the .elp file isn't readable. Still searching for any hidden feature...

Go to Settings -> Behaviour tab -> Context Menu -> Playlists -> tick "Show", close the settings.
Now you can select what playlist you want via right-click -> Playlists.

I'm in love with this skin aside from one thing:

Enabling the Menu panel to get to certain settings (GEP Control, for instance, found in the view drop down menu) breaks the entire skin. If you enable the menu panel, it shows up, but can not be clicked and also disrupts the positioning of the minimize restore and close buttons. That part is easily fixable by messing with some of the size and padding options, but still remains unclickable. I can only imagine that the reason for this is because the entire top of the window is set to be able to drag the entire window on click, even when attempting to click the menu buttons when they're visible. I think if i'm able to get these menu buttons to be on the top layer i can get it to work, but i don't know enough about what i'm doing to figure out what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here's a pic of what i'm talking about:

AH, i found that there was a hidden menu drop down at the bottom of the player skin, HOWEVER, it's missing two of the options normally in the menu bar, those being edit and view. I looked through the script and it seems like it's supposed to show up when i click it, but i can't figure out exactly what's stopping it from showing up. So strange. Hope someone can shed some light on this.

right-click one of the songs -> settings

look for these lines of code : 
$puts(Playcount,$ifgreater(%lastfm_playcount_db%,%play_count%,
$if($strcmp(%lastfm_playcount_db%,'?'),0,%lastfm_playcount_db%),%play_count%))

replace it with : 
$puts(Playcount,$if($strcmp(%lastfm_playcount_db%,'?'),0,%lastfm_playcount_db%))

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 last.fm or wikipedia even though I just have %artist% put into the Artist Field Remapping tab.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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: i62.tinypic.com/207waah.jpg

the full album art looks like this: i60.tinypic.com/30x748w.jpg

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 last.fm.  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

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?

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).

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.

Thanks

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.

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?

Thanks
