Nice but not working in Foobar 1.4.4
vanscov's avatar
this is working perfect with foobar v1.2.4 on window 7, but I think I get lost in a little step of the configuration in chrownflow: I can see the cover of my albums placed in every album folder (I have flacs files only)
After all this is a great skin‼ More thanks in advance if you help me with the covers. My best regards‼

I admit I haven't used chronflow in quite a while.

If I'm not mistaken chronflow had a tab, where you could specify names of files that would be considered "covers", if they are found in the same folder. It might also have been possible to have chronflow try an image with the album's name.

I got it‼ thank you so much for the help. So, let me ask about.. if you are not using chronflow in a quit a while and I can see this skin posted 3 years ago, what are you using nowadays? I have to admit I used winamp bento 2 weeks ago, and that is why this foobar2000 and skins are "new" for me (sorry for my english :)

I still use foobar2000, but without themes. It still has the most advanced media library AFAIK.
fabulous!!!!!!

I've got 2 questions:
1. Does this work on foobar v1.1.7?
2. IS transparency also working on windows XP?
sabof's avatar
1. Probably, but you might have to update some plugins.
2. No, this skin requires aero for transparency - thus vista or 7
dragster8787's avatar
Ok, thanks! I'll try it out!

Great looking theme. I tried installing it but this keeps happening. [link]
sabof's avatar
Hi, try installing on a clean foobar installation, using the plugins included in the package. Can't help you any more than that.
How ta make only the transperancy, without using this skin?
sabof's avatar
I made the skin about a year ago, to tell you the truth I don't remember.

no there is no fcl-file...there a fth but no fcl
sabof's avatar
my bad, but the instructions are the same. you don't need a fcl for this config
DonKoopa's avatar
hmm...but still it's somehow annoying...i mean you present a skin and the users must build it on their own?
sabof's avatar
the fcl is not necessary
sabof's avatar
nope, just replace the files inside the foobar2000 folder with the files in the zip. unfortunately that's the only way foobar2000 skins work
DonKoopa's avatar
but...when i replaced the files and started foobar2000 again, nothing happend
sabof's avatar
if you're using the version 1.1 or 1.1.1 there might be a file called user_profiles_enabled in the foobar directory. Try deleting it, and then copy
DonKoopa's avatar
well..now something changed i think...but maybe it could be a leftover from the previous skin. Click meh!
sabof's avatar
yep, that's the previous skin. are you sure you've copied all the files in their proper directories?
I don't understand how I'm supposed to install this.

There is no .fcl in the zip provided.
sabof's avatar
there is a theme.fcl inside the tachikoma\foobar2000 folder. what you have to do is copy the contents of that folder to foobar root folder, replacing everything and while foobar is closed
