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

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.

Just a note with w10 the stupid title bar color will use what you have set as the accent color. I found a work-around:

Set windows 10 to use accent color on title bar now open notepad and paste this

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]
"AccentColor"=dword:1B1B1B
"AccentColorInactive"=dword:1B1B1B


Save this file as a .reg file and run it. Now your window titlebar color will be the same color as the foobar skin... Yeah i know it's not perfect but w10 gives you hardly any options and the border can NOT be removed only changed...

So, I have managed to install the skin and set it up the way I like it.
One issue I came across was that tracks without an album name were labeled as Single, but the album name (in this case Single) was clipped into the artist name/date.
I managed to fix this by replacing all %album% after the //-------------- album section with album (ELPlaylist Settings / Script / Group Header).

Now I still have two minor annoyances that I haven't found a solution for yet.
(SOLVED) 1. My player still has the white bar at the top. The comment before mine says that I should update UI Hacks, but that didn't help :/
2. For large albums, foobar shows the ugly standard windows scroll bar. The preview picture clearly shows otherwise.

Yes the scrollbar is the windows default one, the picture you see is using the visual style he made called pix. It's only for windows 7 though IIRC.

You can always turn the scroll bar off or edit a theme to get a similar color scroll bar.

Another problem I came across is that the bio of the artist never seems to be displayed.
I tried a variety of songs, but it never showed anything.

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.

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, 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
