Great skin. However, when playing DSD128 files, the bitrate is displayed incorrectly. Probably because the display has only four digits.

Amazing theme, the modded version with flat style looks even better, thank you very much.

I have a 4K monitor and the is super small but I can change the font sizes as described in the installation manual which makes it readable however in the album list panel (ELP for example), the duration of the track is squished to where you cannot read the text. How do I resize those columns (track name, rating, duration)? I have a similar issue for the year/genre text in the group header. Thanks.

is it possible to have a "Folder Structure" of the media library in DarkOne v4 ?

I try but i can't find the way to get it?

Thank You.

I noticed that the LOSSY/LOSSLESS display will show the tak/tta files as lossy. Not a big issue but wonder if I can somehow fix it?


Best regards.

How can I set the Peakmeter the way it looks in the image? https://i.imgur.com/WipDr0f.png

I vaguely remember that in a previous version (I think 3.0) you could set it at 90, 180 or something like that if you wanted it above or below, and it automatically changed between the 2 Peakmeters shown in the images here.

I can't seem to find the option(s) needed in the splitter menu to achieve this.

PS: reinstalling foobar2000 and DarkOne theme did not solve the problem... :(

gonzalo76's avatar

Thank you so much for your help.

I installed beta v3 with the help of tedgo.

The problem was a bad installation...


The required scripts cannot be found.

I am assuming that you have unpacked the beta3 into the installation path.

But the files belong in the profile path!

In a standard installation, this would be% appdata% / foobar2000."

Everything works fine!!!!

Best wishes,

Loving this skin, but is there a way to change the cover panel to something else other than the default darkone v.4.0 when there is nothing playing?

redorbroder's avatar

Find DarkOne.png in foobar->themes->DarkOne_4v.0->Images

Make a copy of DarkOne.png

(Rename the original .png to DarkOne.png.bak if you want to restore the original .png.)

Open DarkOne.png copy in any graphics editor and remove the text leaving an empty transparent .png.

Also you could change the .png image to something else, I prefer to keep it transparent.

Screendumps here of changed image:


Your new .png image should have the same size as original .png.

Best regards

Archael7's avatar

Thank you, worked it like a charm ♥

Also sorry for bothering again, but I would like to ask, is there a way to make the INF tab show the information of the currently selected track and not the playing one, like in vanilla foobar2000 without columns UI?

I love that function on the vanilla foobar and miss it in this skin

redorbroder's avatar

To change INF you have to edit a script somewhere, maybe in foobar or in DarkOne, or both?

I never tested the vanilla foobar.

It probably can be done, you could ask in foobar forum:


Best regards

clean foobar install and the only reaction is "layout import aborted" and approx 11 missing parts.. Thied it again with the same result. Missing parts in the download?

sethspace's avatar

solved it by installing the beta 4 of foobar and manual the missing waveform component.

Hi, which version of Foobar do you recommend? I have downloaded 1.5 and can't find the Columns UI ?

Krvolok's avatar
Awesome! Working like a charm right out of the box (by following the instructions provided). Thank you. Cool Emoticon

Hi tedgo! Can you show how to make the VU-meter appear as in the screenshot.

It would be great.

dfaovred's avatar

I have this VU-meter. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post links here but send me a message and I'll send you it.

tedgo's avatar
Looks really good.
It is a skin for VU Meter, i guess.
But not made by me and i don't know where to get it.
