ColumnsUI & Panel Stack Splitter config for foobar2000 v0.9.4, v0.9.5 & v0.9.6



Beta testing by LondonMike & Soundsblast

First Release : 22/11/2008 23h34 GMT+1
Last Release : 06/12/2008
Current Version : 1.2a NEW!!

/// PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE GETTING MY CONFIG ///

ColumnsUI Config using Panel Stack Splitter gives Foobar2000 a kick ass look, but these configs are not recommended for newbies to Foobar2000, DefaultUI is a better choice if you don't know how to configure a component and if you don't know a little bit about titleformatting script used in Foobar

--- use at your own risk and matching your foobar capacities ---

/// CURACAO FILES ///

Falstaff,

All right, I was wrong to suggest the "centering" issue was your blunder, I take my words back. Still the issue of redundant information in this layout remains.

Rest assured, it's not your coding skills that I question, but your commitment to usability (which is not about satisfying a particular user by adding a certain feature). Usability is objective (and you may have noticed that I've given you logical basis for my ctiticism, which does not get disproved simply by someone saying it "looks" OK for him). Patterns of info significance distribution for left to right readers is objective. Text vs. graphics significance is objective. Object size recognizability dependance is objective (though, of course, somewhat variable).

P.S. And remeber - the difference between a coder and a developer lies in whether one codes primarily for oneself only (and is satisfied by simply "I like it like this") or for the others (and thus binds oneself by far higher standards). Keep up the good work and don't get descouraged by my criticism!

Hi Elenhil,

I'm by job some kind of proffesional critic of critics. So you are pointing out some constructive critics about usability, but your critic lacks itself of usability. I'm not a coder nor a developper not have interest in knowing if what you are saying could be right or not, but the way you present it is quite inoperant. Some suggestions:

1 - try to correct by yourself the layout and show it, "would not it be better this way, friend?"
2 - If you don't know how to code or develop, try to ask: "hey friend, how can I get the things this way"?
3 - If -and only if- you don't receive an answer with these approachs, you can start to think about making assumptions about the philosophy of the coder.
4 - If you have some hints on philosophy about coding and developing, you'll be able to expose them and be heard positively after some positive interaction. Say, "oh, thanks for your answer, now I understand. I'm tired of developers that don't hear people... etc etc".

Quite paternalizing but older enough,

Ps. Thanks Falstaff, Curaçao works fine here and i like it a lot.
