1.2.0 :
- Playback Order button now remains good image on restart (memory added)
- New foo_run button added on the top right, named Scaicha, personnaly, i use this foo_run path with it to see my stats "[link]", but be free to link it with what you want !
>>> TAKE CARE : if you want to use the Scaicha path above, you need to declare before a new foo_exvar variable that will contain your username : kameleon_lastfm_username
- Font fix: Added in the archives (main and fonts) the free font Saxmono that i use in the WSH seekbar to display the elpased time - Album List (AL) and Playlist Switcher (PL) panels are now opened in maximized mode by default in the LEFT PANEL
- Added the possibility to hide the vertical scrollbar in AL and PL panels by usinbg a new extended variable (foo_exvar settings) named kameleon_hide_scrollbar_AL_and_PL ==> set it to the value 1 to hide the scrollbar in foo_exvar
- bugs fixed

1.2.1 :
- OPTIMIZED version of KAMELEON ! Elplaylist refresh is 60% faster ! very notable on big playlist load/change, a really big improvement.
- AL, PL and INFO panels in the LEFT main panel are now opened maximized by default for comfort.
- Added a new foo_run button to launch Wikipedia info about the now playing ARTIST. foo_run button name = Wiki / foo_run path command is : "[link](%artist%,' ','_')"
- bugs fixed (File/Open, AL/PL display over other panels fixed, ...)

1.2.2 :
- Bug fixed : sometimes playlist switcher left panel had bad refresh (very annoying) => no more now (btw no more reproduced with the fix)
- Bug fixed : buttons + / - to expand or collapse the playlist ativated too the 'Show now playing command' => removed
- YEAR display in the playlist header : now, long dates are accepted but it still display only the Year (it take by default the 4 digits on the left : 2005-07-24 => 2005)

i like your skins, at least as they look here, but i can't install them, 'cause i don't know how.
You keep directing to an unexistent page for instructions, would not be simpler to just enclose a text file with you skins?

this skin is outdated, try a most recent one, instructions will fit

This is, by far, the best Skin I had and I never could found any like this, with my preferences.

1 Question, I never knew what does mean that small box that is between the Rating Stars and the Song Time. Also I don't know how to use it. What is that box?

lyrics present or not (embedded or in the lyrics folder

Please author I have a question, this skin is outdated and will have an update? When was the lastest update, 2009?
Br3tt's avatar
no update planned. for the last update, the info isalready done in the description: "- Update date : 22/03/2009 16h14 GMT+1 (v1.2.0 -> v1.2.1)"
So out of curiosity would you be against me updating this skin with more recent plugins and whatnot and re-releasing with a link back to you of course. I have spent some time making it work for current foobar and have made some progress. Would love to share it with people.

feel free to share your updated version as "Kameleon Mod by ChaosTherum" when at least you give a link to the original da page.


I am having the most difficult time trying to get this to work. I downloaded everything that it needed and disabled safe mode on WSH. I load up the text file from your folder and I receive an error message, Scripting Engine Initialization Failed ({19656264-3F55-4712-8233-4B2A999502F0}, CODE: 0x80020101). I'm I making this harder than it seems? I can't get any skin to work for me.

This doesn't seem to work with Foobar 1.2.9, any suggestions on what I could do?
Br3tt's avatar
could you explain the "seem" ?

bt, as the config is old one day it will no more work and no support is available for this config anymore from me, i have other priority and i can't be everywhere, i hope you'll understand that point.

I stopped trying to make it work since I found a better software than foobar and no longer use it. I just thought your artwork was awesome.

I hope what you are doing right now is equally brilliant as this theme :P Cheers!

Real nice, I am very new to foobar and was wondering, can I change the look of the e.q. to the look of the e.q. in the Exchange 3.5?
Enorme celui là, par contre comment je fais pour modifier l'image en arrière plan ? Genre si je veux pas que ça mette à chaque fois la pochette de l'album de l'artiste que j'écoute, je veux mettre une image personnalisée par exemple.

never fail to fascinate me,
