News
2008-10-23: Added htpc10.v1.0
2008-09-16: Added htpc9.v1.1

How to use (generally)
Setup a layout in columns ui like the following one:
CODE
Vertical splitter
+- Track display [or trackinfo_mod panel]
\- Columns playlist [hidden]

The hidden columns playlist makes keyboard shortcuts work.

How to set coverPath and artistPath
htpc1 - htpc7 were written in times of panels_ui where user variables could been set globally. If those configs are used with trackinfo_mod, artistPath and coverPath must been set manually in the top lines (i.e. in the "// Globals" section) of the trackinfo_mod code for example like this:
CODE
$puts(coverPath,$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,folder.jpg))
$puts(artistPath,$replace(%path%,$directory(%path%,1)\%filename_ext%,folder.jpg))


htpc1
  • Uses font Gentium
  • Stretches artist picture to panel size


Track display code and pictures (copy to images\htpc1\ in your fb2k directory):
Attached File  htpc1.zip ( 235.5K ) Number of downloads: 748



htpc4
  • Shows album cover and artist pic (uses user globals)
  • easy usage: just use the code below; no additional images required
  • quite resolution independent; album art size easily modifiable


Download: code for
Attached File  htpc4.txt ( 4.17K ) Number of downloads: 449
v1.0 (compatible only with panels_ui due to $eval)
Attached File  htpc4.v1.1.txt ( 4.51K ) Number of downloads: 497
v1.1 (compatible with trackinfo_mod, modifications by scienceguy8m)


htpc6
  • Easy installation: Only copy code below
  • Uses artistPath and coverPath
  • Very well structured code (good for personal modifications), easy to adapt to other resolutions (if necessary at all)
  • Font used: Big Noodle Titling
  • Progress bar around album art


Download: panels_ui track display code (needs editing to be compatible with trackinfo_mod)
Attached File  htpc6.txt ( 8.29K ) Number of downloads: 549



htpc7
  • Credits go to Cyex for his CD cover picture
  • Playback buttons (pause on cover, next and previous track on left/right)
  • Small scpl panel on the cover can be activated for quick browsing in the current playlist (==> only usable for mouse)
  • When hotness is used, the cover glows to indicate hot tracks
  • Quite resolution independent (horizon position and text sizes must be tweaked a bit in the configuration part to look good)




Track display and SCPL codes, pictures and installation notices (readme.txt):
Attached File  htpc7.zip ( 255.29K ) Number of downloads: 938




htpc9
  • Compatible with foo_uie_trackinfo_mod and panels_ui track display
  • Intended for fullscreen use but automatically scales very well also to small size (refer to screenshot #3).
  • Well structured configuration section at top for changing stuff like picture paths or colors.
  • Album art "glows" dependent on a user-selectable value. I use it in combination with hotness, but also rating or any other ordinal size can be used, too.
  • Artist art at the beginning and end of track


Download: trackinfo_mod code and pictures (put those into a folder images/htpc9 in your foobar2000 installation folder):
Attached File  htpc9.v1.1.zip ( 81.5K ) Number of downloads: 486




htpc10
  • Cover image with glow, optional additional artist picture support
  • Text in symbol line shows play count, album and release date periodically
  • Rating (star) and mood/energy (sun) symbols. Can easily modified to visualise other values.
  • Playback order symbols (only with foo_cwb_hooks)


Download: trackinfo_mod code and pictures (put those into a folder named images/htpc10 in your foobar2000 installation folder):
Attached File  htpc10.v1.0.zip ( 155K ) Number of downloads: 789
