Foolars 2 Glass Mod Final by heroshade Foolars 2 Glass Mod Final by heroshade

Foolars2 - Glass Mod Final



THIS SETUP DOES NOT WORK WITH FOOBAR2000 0.9.5.3 OR LATER!!!


Direct Link to correct foobar version

Final update. I think this update has covered any glaring omissions that I missed before (library/lyrics/info, how could I go on all this time and not notice this?!). I'm happy with the way it looks and feels, and I think this is how I'm going to leave it.

Changes:
Buttons - Completely redone to match the aero style, and are easier to read.
Colors - Contrast has been improved, the lyrics/library/info sections have been recoloured so you can actually read it for once.
Resizing - Better for longer labels.
Character Limit - There is no character limit on labels.

Resources
Aero by RE:9

Foolars2 by lassekongo83

Installation
1.Create a Panels UI folder in the foobar2000 directory.
Ex. (C:\Program Files\foobar2000)

2.Copy and Paste "foolars2glassF" and "foolars2"(folder) to the Panels UI folder.
Ex. (C:\Program Files\foobar2000\PanelsUI)

3.Copy the contents of the components folder to the components folder in the foobar2000 directory.
Ex. (C:\Program Files\foobar2000\components)

4.If necessary, copy the contents of the font folder into the systems font folder (can be found through the control panel).
Ex. (Control Panel\Fonts)

5.Startup foobar2000 It will ask if you want to use PanelsUI, ColumnsUI or the Default interface. Choose PanelsUI.

6.Go to Preferences > Display > PanelsUI and choose the foolars2glassF.pui file in the Layout dropdown.

Notes

Try to use it on a darker background, as the colour that is outputted depends on what's behind foobar. Anything that isn't purely white basically. Glass effect only visible on systems that support aero.

Sorry for the pretty bland preview pic, but I don't have a big enough monitor to use a nice background (laptop here) D: , but I figured you already know what it's like in action.
The download comes with all the components and fonts so you don't have to look around for them.
Enjoy!

Preview Pic Changed - 6/4/2011

As promised, I got a better preview pic up :D
Also, over 1.2k downloads. Pretty amazing considering the fact that it's only for an older version.
Background is one last breath by ~dokt
And the W7 theme is Elune by *minhtrimatrix.

I wanted to try the skin while I had a 1.3.8 version of the player already installed. I installed 0.9.2 in a separate location as if portable, installed the skin and it works, just that it cannot run at the same time with the other main installation. But using it in this way maybe risky, so take care.

- foo_cwb_hooks.dll : cwbowron's title format hooks, Tagger Panel Window

Do you know how I could change the text colour? I'm assuming I'd have to edit something in the layout, but I have no idea what.

Would you be able to do me a huge favour and make all the text black? I have no idea how, but I'm sure it would be easy :<

Sorry, it doesn't work that way. Normally on a normal layout you would set the rgb of the text to 255,255,255 but on aero based layouts that just makes it transparent.

If I could I would. But Panel UI has been discontinued, and only works for that version of foobar (in the description).

Do you have the correct version of foobar? Did you put Panels UI in the correct place?

because the new foobar versions don't support PanelsUI which was the most prominent tool for skinning in foobar.

Sorry, not that I know of. To my knowledge, you would have to hack aero itself to do that.

Ok, thanks for the response, another issue I'm having is that the volume bar appears both below and above the track title/last played/times played and also the last played/times played don't change for any song, it just says "N/A" and "? Times".

Just place the artwork (has to be a .jpg) into the same folder as your music, and change the name to cover.jpg. Sorry for the really manual solution, but that's the only way that works with this theme :/ Thanks for downloading!
