Br3tt's avatar

farhanimator's avatar
is there any minimum system req for the theme :P (cos' i hav 32mb graphics only :P)
Br3tt's avatar
this config contains chronflow ... so a "real" graphic gard is recommended (integrated cause generate problems withe this plugin)

maybe you can try to update your video drivers to the latest ? who knows...

hey man this is FREAKING AMAZING!
THe instructions are easy and you included all the necessary components...
but I am running into a problem, apparently I clicked auto-tag files from freedb and i cant find where to turn it off..and when I do have cover art in the form of folder.jpg the mini-art viewer in the playlist will not see it unless the file is in mp3 format and it is embedded artwork...anyway to fix this? But if not I couldn't care more because this skin is FREAKING AWESOME!
