foobar_ncmpcpp_mod by twnsnd foobar_ncmpcpp_mod by twnsnd
My mod of ahoka's foo_ncmpcpp skin. This mod adds some new panels, changes up some of that tags that are displayed and includes full last.fm playcount sync support. There are a few minor issues with this skin that are bugging me.. but, they should go unnoticed by most. For those who need help installing this please use the readme.

updated .fcl

Readme
Extensive FAQ


Notes:
If you downloaded this before it had a readme on gist download it again. I also failed to include all of the required fonts at one point.

Changelog:

  • 09-03-12 | fixed an error in the script with the [+m] button

  • 11-03-12 | added more grouping options and fixed some clipping issues on the [vis] page

  • 15-03-12 | minor text fixes and pixel alignment

  • 30-03-12 | switched from Profont to ProggyTinySZ also removed all smoothing from fonts and cleaned up a few other things

  • 01-05-12 | updated readme / fixed problem with 'DARK.COLOR.3' global variable

  • 10-05-12 | added a few more grouping options for el_playlist (should be easier to add custom groupings)



Today (01-04-12) I decided to do a fresh install of foobar and follow my installation instructions to see where all of the problems in the comments were coming from. It seems like many of the problems stem from foobar being installed in non portable mode. Installing it in portable mode should fix anything strange. It is also advised to make sure that you are running foobar as an administrator.

Update: since da no longer accepts archives that contain executables I will simply link the most recent .fcl in the description.

Not to bash your work, but I can't seem to get it working properly.
I can't hide my titlebar, nor does it look a lot like the preview, aside from the colors and font.
I'll attach a picture for reference, and I'll be looking forwards to hearing from you soon.

I'm running Windows 8.1 and foobar2000 v1.3.8

Have you ever met a skin that you tried to manipulate, but a year to make music she wanted you to wait. Let me tell you a story of my situation. I was trying to import the .fcl file from the masood folder and it wasn't there. What do? Yes, I did delete the user_profiles_enabled garbage, yet it continues to give me problems. I really enjoy the look of this skin. Please, please help me senpai...

Hi! Love this skin and I've been using it for a while now. But, how can I get rid of the red "\\asshai\musik\Renard\LapFox%20Trax%20-%20Post-Traumatic%20Stress%20Disorder" right beneath the "Playing" ?

How do i make it so the playlist on the left can be browsed with just one click? At the moment i have to double click the playlist to browse it and this also starts playing music from the playlist which i do not want to do.

Hi, enjoying the skin so far, it's pretty great. Unfortunately I'm new to messing around with all the options in Foobar, I managed to get the desired colours, but there are multiple things I have no idea how to adjust/add.

1) My first issue is that when I play a song with multiple discs, it'll show the disc number instead of the track number. Is there a way I can get it to display both? For example, Disc #. Track # - Song name

2) My second issue is the font size, I tried adjusting it in Preferences > Colours and Fonts > Fonts, but the font size of ProggyTinySZ refuses to adjust from 9-13pt, for some strange reason it changes to 14pt, but at that point the font is too big and causes a lot of display issues.

3) I am also wondering if I can shift all the information on the right side a bit to the left.

Here's a screenshot I've uploaded a screenshot, I tried my best to point out my issues. Thanks for the help  i.imgur.com/0VA2zpi.png

I forgot to mention that I'm clueless when it comes to figuring out the scripts, I tried reading up on it but I guess it's something I have to dedicate more time in order to understand. I can do simple things such as changing the RGB values (thanks to the pastebin FAQ), but beyond that I'm hopeless. If you could hold my hand throughout the whole step process that'd be great. Thanks again

Edit: Good news, I've managed to shift the length of the tracks over to the left with some trial and error. Unfortunately I've run into a few problems again. I've uploaded a picture and I tried my best to point out all the issues i'm having.

i.imgur.com/C2QRewx.png

1) I'm interested in having two separate columns, one which has the disc number (if there is no disc, I'm hoping it will not display anything at all and just be a blank space) and another column which has the track number.

2) Here's the problem I had when shifting the track length time. The source/genre refuses to budge any further to the left.  

Here's a pastebin of the portion of the script involving #2). pastebin.com/1qmbgApE (I set the value to -20, but it did not budge as I put increasingly larger negative values.

I'm also not understanding how to change the drawline to become shorter from the right side. I managed to shorten it on the left to work well with the %codec% but I am at a lost for the right side of the drawline

3) There is a small || that separates the source/genre & total track length time that I can't seem to shift to the left with the source/genre and track length. I'm not too sure where in the scripts this is, if you could point it out to me or tell me what value to change it to that would be great. 

I tried my best to explain my issues, but it's a bit hard to put into words, if you need any clarification let me know. Thanks again

How exactly would I configure my foobar to look more like ncmpcpp (having everything in line with each other), kind of like this i.imgur.com/RKJtRDv.jpg.

I've been messing with settings for a few weeks and I can't really figure out how to get it to display it quite like that.

Sorting it by path puts everything in line, but for me it isnt displaying the artist or album.

I'd also like it to indent the currently playing song. Any idea?

:icontwnsnd:
twnsnd Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2014
the first question is a little bit too involved all i can really say is for you to try and learn how to use columns ui

as for indenting look for '$if(%isplaying%' in the script and add some spaces

Okay scrobbling functions, but the the heart icon has not replaced the grey exclamation placeholder.

Also an extra question.

Is there a way to run foobar2000 borderlessly, or, without the Windows border around the program?

Thank you for all your hard work.

The only problem i have with this and quite minor is that the name of artists to the right of [playing] Gets messed up if the window isn't wide enough for the artist name, because artist name gets put behind the audio format text.

So basically it goes from something like this:
[Playing] AAC Some Original Artist [+1]
To this:
[Playing] AAC
               Some Original Art[+1]
But the text is on one line so it is hard to read just seems to be a problem with the padding stopping text from overlapping [playing] but not the format.

Best foobar skin hope you keep updating this

try adding this to the script for the top bar right below the "//album artist / album" section

//codec
$drawrect(0,0,90,31,%BG.COLOR%,,)
$if(%ispaused%,,$drawtextex( %codec%,55,16,35,13,%DARK.COLOR.3%,))

you can then scroll up and remove the duplicate codec line
