We ought to do updating skins. Yes all somehow too lazy.

Hi, great looking skin, but I have a large library - is there a folder/library view in this skin?
thanks :)

I installed Shades Lossless in a custom Portable Instalation and I received the following error when opening:

foo_title - There was an error loading skin C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foo_title\pure_adium_normal_b:
Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foo_title\pure_adium_normal_b\skin.xml'.

This is probably caused by a variable inside a script which has not inherited the instalation path, or the path where the foobar executable is being run from. Is it possible to fix this?

Thanks :)

What you have done here looks amazing!

I'm not one to install Foobar2000 in Program Files, because I like playing with multiple skins from time to time.

How does one go around to install your whole set-up on a portable Foobar2000 installation?

After installing a custom folder, you must perform the following operations:
1. Delete the file "foo_managedWrapper.dll.cfg", then adjust as [link] and [link]
2. Remove VST plugin from the list and if you need to re-download [link]
3. Change the way for the encoder [link]

RAZOR-87's avatar
Download the file *.fcl, which is in folder "C:\Program Files\foobar2000\skins". How to download: "Menu -> Preferences -> Display -> Columns UI -> Main -> Import".
