Thanks :)

After years i will update it with the actual components, new scripts and features (easier optional button integration, replacing peakmeter with foo_vis_vumeter and selectable skins) once the scripts are finished (i write them for the DarkOne4Mod version and will port them to the classic v4. Or create a new v4 - called "DarkOne4 Classic", based on the Mod-version...).

Amazing theme! I'm new on Foobar2000, your PDF helped me a lot.

Just one question, How can I sort by rating on ELP, I tried what you say on chapter 2.4.1.1 ( Display name: "by rating" / Sort format: "%rating%") but it dosen't seem to work.

Thanks anyway

Is the rating in the tags?
Then try $meta(rating), because foo_playcount is shipped with DarkOne4 and this grabs the %rating% for database ratings.

the skin looks nice, under the cover could be edited to place information about the track as bitrate, codec (logo flac,Hi-Res,Wav, mp3), genre. It's just a suggestion, do not bother with me

This is a good skin, I am using foobar2000 because of it now.
Thank you very much for your hard work.

Just a few questions:

1. The resolution on a 4K TV. I had to set DPI compatibility in Win, otherwise the icons are planck sized. The result is a correct aspect ratio, but a bit upacaled blurry look. Could you add support for a 2160p?

2. Is there a way to remove certain buttons like DET, INF, RES,...?

3. Is there a way to remove stars rating from everywhere?

4. Is there a way to make the library display album art instead of regular expanding tree list?

5. Is there a way to change the font and colour of the currently playing song (under the cover art)?

And just as a suggestion for future, I would put an option to get rid of some of the less useful bottom panel buttons and put the rest of them all in a smaller space. That way you could get enough space to have cover art, library, currently playing AND lyrics displayed at the same time.

Hello,

First of all I want to congratulate you for this beautiful skin, it is just beautiful.
I have two questions for you.
1 => is it possible to change the color indicated in 1 on my image?
2 => on your capture it is indicated the total number of the tracks, on my capture in 2 it is missing, how to make it appear?

Thanking you in advance.

Hello!

You have to edit the meta data for each album.
Mark the album --> right click --> select properties --> set total tracks
Done! :D

I don't know how to change the color in library but I'm shure it can be done somehow.

Best regards

Hi. Just installed and configured as in the PDF. However, when I exited Foobar2000 I was prompted by a popup saying that the configuration file could not be written (object could not be found).
I pressed retry but no change. then it just closed and all changes went back to default.
What could be the reason for that?

any way to make the albums with different artists stack up under "ELP" at the right?

Hello!

Do you mean like this:
web.comhem.se/u5127956/VARIOUS…
For that you need to edit the metadata for the album.

I prefer to change/edit the metadata so it looks like this:
web.comhem.se/u5127956/NO_VA.p…

Couldn't figure out if you can edit the metadata for an complete album using foobar.
You can do it one by one manually.
I use another tool, not free, for editing metadata, it can edit the complete album.
Maybe you could find a free one?

Kind regards

A Very Happy Year 2019 to Everyone!

Hi Tedgo,

I have been using your excellent and spectacular DarkOne for as long as I can remember!

However, since I upgraded from Windows 10 v1803 (DarkOne was still working well) to v1809 I faced this DarkOne issue ("Aw, crashed :("). Affected area: all JScript Panel Configurtions

May I get assistance from anyone who had similar experience to correct this issue (see attachment).

Thanking you I hope to hear from you soon.

I had the exact same problem, but to my surprise I managed to fix it. Here's what you have to do:

1>  Run Foobar
2>  Clear all the error message boxes
3>  Right click on a panel that has failed to load (where you have the "aw crashed" message).
4>  Select 'configure', and then go to the Script Engine drop down menu and change the engine from 'JScript' to 'JScript9' and the panel will load.
5>  Repeat for each panel that had the "aw crashed" message.
6>  you only have to do this once, and then Foobar runs normally thereafter with no error messages.

I believe the problem was indeed caused by a microsoft update.

Hi gliderboy,
First let me apologize for this very late reply as I didn't login to my Deviantart account for sometime.
Anyway, I must thank you for taking the time to help me to resolve the issue I faced at that time.
However, I must agree with you Windows updates could have caused the issue.
My issue with Foobar2000, DarkOne v4.0 theme was, finally resolved after the Windows 10 v1903 update!
Once again, I thank you very much.

Hey! love this skin, i customized it for myself a little bit (took me quite a while) but i was wondering that the "playing" cover on the right isn't showing up. Is there anything i can do to see the cover at this spot?

Hi!

The link to your screendump isn't working.
Perhaps this is what you looking for:

Fizbin69 posted this on Mar 28, 2016

www.deviantart.com/tedgo/art/D…

Scroll down a bit, almost to the end of page 4.

----------------------------
You can make it so it will show the cover but not the cover AND "Playing" (via the Playing.png file) at the same time. It's either one or the other. I can provide the details of displaying the cover only if you request.

Right click anywhere on your ELP Playlist and select Settings. Then click Group Header tab and scroll down to the bottom until you see this code:

----------------------------

$if(%el_isplaying%,
   $imageabs(3,3,$sub(%el_height%,8),$sub(%el_height%,8),%CONFIG.PATH%Playing.png,nodelay)
,
$if2($imageabs(3,3,$sub(%el_height%,8),$sub(%el_height%,8),$get(art.path),$get(art.option)),
$imageabs(3,3,$sub(%el_height%,8),$sub(%el_height%,8),%CONFIG.PATH%NoFront.png,nodelay))
)

And then substitute that code for this code:

$if(%el_isplaying%,
   $albumart(3,3,$sub(%el_height%,8),$sub(%el_height%,8),1,%art.option%,nodelay)
               $imageabs(3,3,$sub(%el_height%,8),$sub(%el_height%,8),%CONFIG.PATH%NoFront.png,nodelay))
,
               $if2($albumart(3,3,$sub(%el_height%,8),$sub(%el_height%,8),1,%art.option%,0,240),
$imageabs(3,3,$sub(%el_height%,8),$sub(%el_height%,8),%CONFIG.PATH%NoFront.png,nodelay))
)

----------------------------

Click OK...Done!

I installed the theme and it's not even loaded.
I changed the downloaded file to .exe, applied it, and opened Foobar2000 (and it didn't update the layout).
Are there any other steps to do?

Hello!

There is a Manual_v4.0.pdf, you'll find it in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\themes\DarkOne_v4.0
Your path to DarkOne_v4.0 folder could be different.
Read it and you'll get all the info needed.

Best regards

Hi!

Since I install this theme (7 days ago), after closing foobar a popup window appears saying that foobar has crashed.

Is it normal?

Thanks!
