What version of foobar does this work best on? I get a messload of errors on the current one... and mainly because foobar doesnt support panels UI anymore..but some of the older ones won't run the new dll's of the components. i BEG of you... please upload your theme WITH all the components..because this is what happens when you don't.. :(

I can't find Foo_peakmeter anywhere, and the FooAva installer doesn't patch foobar correctly :|

Can you please upload the components?
(because I can't find all of them)

There was some preview version for foobar2000.pl's users: [link] There's no final version for now...

First things first, awesome theme, and very user-friendly install to boot.

I'm new to Foobar, though, and have no real idea how to change things on skins that already exist, so what I want to know is if there's a way to do the following:

1. Load my media library in the playlist pane, rather than use the little popup window/file browser window,

2. Make multiple folders/artists collapsible/expandable.

For example, this is what my setup looks like: [link]

I'd really like to have all of my music loaded in the playlist side, but for each album to expand only when selected. I've seen this in other themes, but I'd rather use your theme of course, so can you tell me how to do this, if it's an option? Thanks in advance!

1. Go to menu (first button in left corner AFAIR) -> Library -> Search, insert %path% PRESENT and click on the button in right corner:
2. Impossible in fooAvA

Excellent, that worked. Thanks!

AFAIR, just go to settings (first button in lower-right corner) and change lyrics mode.
Virrel33t's avatar
Oh >.<

Thought I had been there and changed that one :P
But how do u get the lyrics as like u have it at the picture with the U2 song? Do you have any tips? Mine is pretty ugly atm :P
But thx anyway! :D

You can change it in Preferences [ctrl+p] => Tools => Lyric Show Panel => Display
Virrel33t's avatar
Fix it up pretty nice now :D

Just got one question; How do u change the background so it's not a colour but a image? Like in the u2 sample :P

How can I make Foobar always visible? I've tried with the keyboard shortcut but it did'nt work.

Unfortunately, it won't work in PanelsUI.

The skin that made me use foobar2000 again.
The best I've seen till now.
Thank you very much!

I have one question though : how do you set the font (colors, in caps, highlighting color...) for the lyric show component like in your screenshots? I only have a green ugly font...
