Hi there mate,
I was wondering whether you could add an option for a feature. Some of my albums have multiple artists, and those tracks have multiple artists (i.e. Sherlock Season 1 Soundtrack). I've named the album artist: "David Arnold;Michael Price" and the ; becomes a comma within the foobar environment (like so

What I would love is if these artists were separate because I have a number of artists in my artists tab that I also have separately.

So any artists that are seperated by a ";" in the metadata should be considered individual artists. Hopefully you get what I mean. It's pretty difficult to explain. Anyway loving the theme, really looking forward to the finished version. Will definitely donate again once it's done.

By far the most complete and well designed foobar theme i've ever used, thanks alot!

Tho it is normal that the album artwork isn't displayed in the now playing tab, but is fine everywhere else?

Absolutely perfect. Nice job. ;)

I think this is the final release and i don't think he will update again :(

He said there will be a 2.5 version and it will probably be published on GitHub. Check the previous page of comments.
Krysk Featured By Owner Edited Apr 15, 2015
I couldn't use this theme for longer than five minutes because it's missing something important; I can't re-order tracks in a playlist by dragging, like someone else below. Is there a way to do that, or can you fix it?

I realllllllllly would like to use this theme, I'd be happy to donate if you can fix this.

Looks amazing! :D I love it

The best foobar skin I've seen!

Having trouble with album art though. It downloads perfectly fine but fails to load even after adding the directory C:\Program Files\foobar2000\themes\fusion\images\artists\[%artist%]\[%album%]\%album%*.* to the search pattern
am I doing something wrong?
wx2333 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2015  New member Professional Interface Designer
Hi, Im loving your theme, although on a playlist I cant seem to re-oder the tracks? Is this possible? Thanks
pyromanca Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2015
Does anyone know how to display album artwork in the now playing tab?
LordRaiva Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Really this is the best theme for foobar2000!

you just need to fix some bugs, then it's PERFECT

Hey, wondering if you could make a WSH edit in your next build.

Currently, it doesn't respect multi-value fields. So if I classify an album's genre as "Dubstep; Drum & Bass", the 'Genre' tab in your skin makes a genre called "Dubstep, Drum & Bass", when what it should do is add that album under both the 'Dubstep' genre and the 'Drum & Bass' genre.

Thanks! Let me know if I wasn't clear enough.

Is there a way to change the colour from green to others?
thebezet Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2015  New member
Yes, click on Menu (top right corner), then Settings, Theme, and then you should see a list of colours to choose from.
rniso Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2015
Thanks a bunch. I must have missed it or something.
thebezet Featured By Owner Edited Mar 19, 2015  New member
PS. Have you thought about sharing the code on GitHub so others can contribute to the theme? I could help out.

(sorry for the triple post but again, due to mediocre implementation my comments get marked as spam...)
thebezet Featured By Owner Edited Mar 19, 2015  New member

Other problems I've noticed:

*I can select an album by using 
Ctrl + click, however I cannot deselect it. Also, if I select multiple albums and then right click and select Properties, I'm not editing the properties of all the selected albums, just the one. It would be cool if you could Shift select multiple items too. (EDIT: editing properties of multiple selections seems to only work if I keep holding Ctrl, which is weird)

*When I add something to the playlist or change anything at all, it scrolls to the top automatically. Ideally, if I add anything to the playlist, it focuses on where it was added (depending on the sort)

*The sort options seem to be editing the actual playlist, which might be a bit problematic if you have playlists with a specific order that you want to retain (hence my initial change)

*Playlist search should focus on the first album it finds (at the moment it does not move/scroll at all)

*Sometimes the cover thumbnail is pixelated

thebezet Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2015  New member

This theme is really fantastic. Once thing I had to improve is adding a "Sort by default" option so that my playlist order is retained. This is an important feature that I'm sure other people need too.

(I need to break up this comment into separate ones because this stupid comment system thinks it's spam...)

Another suggestion:

When you hover over a track, it gives you an option to play it or to put it in a queue. Next to the queue option (or maybe down in the 'now playing' bar, you should give the option to repeat a track. Otherwise, you have to open the extended menu.
voodooposse Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2015
Hi, is there some way to add borders to album covers in the collection album view? Now it only happens when u hover over them with the mouse, im wondering if its possible to do it so only album cover always has permanent border, excluding album name and artist name.
ImJustHereForSkins Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015  New member
Amazing theme! It's the best I've ever used. Very comprehensive and feature-rich.

I don't seem to be able to make album artwork appear on the lefthand panel - is there a way to fix this?

Otherwise, awesome theme! Maybe make the top pane (with Artists, Albums, Genres, Songs, and sorting options) a bit thinner so there is more room in the main window.
somejohn Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2015  New member
Hello, nice skin.

Do you think it would be possible to include an option to move the playback buttons to the other side of the seekbar?

Hello. Nice progress!
How to hide somg info right panel?
Is there any plans to implement showing lyrics?
Shenj Featured By Owner Edited Mar 8, 2015
Neat progress :)

Some Icons could use some makeover as they look blurry. PlayList/Pause/Now Playing in sidebar/Trash Icon.

Some bugs:

Cover Art doesn't load from FLAC files but from MP3 files (what could cause this?)
Albums don't sort properly, removing the $if2(...) at the start of it made it sort properly.
Collection View (Library) appears to not work properly at all, it doesn't play what i click in the Playlist view instead it plays some other song in a different album, seems the maping is very funky, Clicking the Play Icon in the playlist view while in Collection view plays a different song > jumps to that album, clicking play on song there again jumps to a different album etc. Basically the Collcetion view doesn't work at all :)
Clicking Play on Cover Art does not load Album but plays current song.
MoaRider Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015
Hi there again. Loving the new songs tab. A little issue I've found is that when adding a ";" to separate artists (i.e. an album has 2 artists so you would have Artist One; Artist 2), foobar adds a comma between them but only to certain tracks. This causes some of my albums to be split apart into 2 with some tracks having a comma between artists and some having a ;

Any way to fix this?
Datticus Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Wow! Absolutely amazing theme. 
Very functional, stylish, and easy on the eyes. 
Is there a way to merge multi-disc albums into one album? As opposed to having "X Album, disc 1" and then "X Album, disc 2"
Datticus Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Well I just answered my own question. Again, very comprehensive theme.
I look forward to the next version!
Azergty00 Featured By Owner Edited Mar 1, 2015
Good job !
Is there any chance to see this theme published on github or equivalent ?
I think javascript developpers like me could help you to solve some bugs and/or add some features.
NadirP Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
If good idea

When finished with v2.5 I'll post on github for all who wish to collaborate
dontgotone Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015
That is wonderful news; this is such a great interface, it should have an extremely long lifetime. It's hard to believe you've managed to single-handedly out-do pretty much all of the major music players' interfaces so quickly. I'm another developer that is likely to contribute.
dontgotone Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015
Github is great, btw, because you can let anyone work on anything and then pick and choose the community code to keep (the good stuff) and refuse the crap. So it lets you fairly easily maintain creative control while still taking good contributions from the community.
dontgotone Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015
Not sure if you have any experience with git/Github, but do let me (or maybe Azergty00) know if you need a crash-course or help with the setup.

Hi. One more problem here.
On the new playlist panel there's friendly welcome message inviting to drag and drop files or click to add files. However drag & drop from explorer doesn't seem to work (and clicking works only for first tab). Am I doing something wrong?
ImJustHereForSkins Featured By Owner Edited Mar 16, 2015  New member
Are you running Foobar as Administrator?

If you are, don't. Creates compatibility issues with Drag & Drop. If the problem persists, respond.
ichik Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
Didn't help.
ImJustHereForSkins Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2015  New member
What are the files that you're trying to import?

And the inability to click is odd, since I can (Windows 8.1, 64 bit).

Is your Foobar installation Standard or Portable?
ichik Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
Usual mp3. Clicking works only for first tab and only once, after you add some files, you can't add more from different folder.
It's portable if I remember correctly.
ImJustHereForSkins Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2015  New member
Hm... Un-install/delete everything and install from Standard is my only suggestion.
dontgotone Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015
Thank you NadirP, and thank you for the Songs tab!!! :)

Just some eventual nice-to-haves:

Support for multiple genres per song (foobar2000 uses semicolon-separated genres; the Genres list currently shows them all together instead of parsed out)
5-star ratings support (via the standard foo_playcount component)
Ctrl+A shortcut support (Select All)

Once again, thanks for the best theme ever! :)
NadirP Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
Okay due to popular demand, star rating will be in the v2.5 :D
dontgotone Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2015
Woot woot woot! :)

Thanks, I just redownloaded Foobar for the first time in years and stumbled across this theme on a forum. It's absolutely amazing!

One question, I can't use the scroll wheel to scroll down the track listing when I have an album selected. It would be nice to have that feature.

Thanks for all your hard work!!!!
ycrichard Featured By Owner Edited Feb 16, 2015
Thank you very much for the theme, it is absolutely the best!!!
Question: how to download album art from LastFM? I could not find the option. or do I need additional component?
Thx in advance, Cheers!

PS: look forward to a lyrics panel~

Thanks, finally got it! lol
JGDD Featured By Owner Edited Feb 14, 2015
Nice update once again. One area that needs some attention (IMO): the menu. It's gigantic and and kind of a mess. You should keep FB2Ks default menu options at the top or at the very least place a shortcut to preferences there. A lot of your custom options could be nested for a cleaner look, too.

Still, this is pretty amazing for being all WSH.

Thanks again for sharing.
