MonoLite Plus Mod by inappropriatenudging MonoLite Plus Mod by inappropriatenudging
This is my attempt to add even more awesome to Monolite Plus:

[link]

Pretty much:

* Artist and Genre playlist views
* Orange and blue colors
* iPod and shoutcast support
* A Now Playing tab with album cover and little bars that move around all crazy and the waveform seekbar as well
* Playlist filters with a ton of presets for the OCD fiends
* Buttons for rating songs and downloading covers
* Playback statistics like Last Played, Added to Library, etc
* Last.fm related artists and listeners in the Biography tab
* Rewritten and optimized interface - resizing the window is faster, tabs switch more smoothly, options are saved with globals

A few differences though:
* The library tab has been removed, with its theme and filters ported to the album list popup.
* You're stuck with the last.fm stuff, so you'd better like it.

More screenshots:

Installing this is really straight forward, just be sure not to copy the playlists folder over an existing install or you could lose a couple of your playlists.

//////////////////
Recent changes:

V5
* Artist and Genre playlist views (the Album grouping has been reverted to a true album view instead of sorting by artist - album as before)
* Orange and blue color schemes
* Waveform seekbar visualization (it's pretty great)
* Rewrote and optimized much of the interface - resizing the window is faster,
tabs switch more smoothly, interface options are saved with globals
* Playing tab:
- Try not to use embedded artwork in the playing tab
- Don't resize covers so aggressively in vertical layouts
- Reduced the vertical height of the tracklist
- Added a very slight drop shadow
* The cancel button on the shoutcast input popup actually works
* The dropdown menu appears at fixed coordinates
* Fixed some playlist filters that weren't working properly for tags with multiple values
* Some other little fixes

Much thanks to sparanoid and falco whose amazing work this is based off, some other poeple too:

I've got it! It's a conflict with "fooplaycount.dll". Just delete or rename it to something else (if you wanna keep it for another skin).

updating the lyrics panel to lyrics show 3 is not too much of an issue. you can do it yourself and i will tell you how

STEP 1: add the new foo_uie_lyrics3.dll to the components folder and delete the lyrics2.dll
STEP 2: open foobar and right click on the tab bar > add panel > Panels > Lyrics Show 3
STEP 3: you should have a block of white on the screen, right click on the empty space right above (where the tiny sliver of the tab bar can be seen) and select "splitter settings"
STEP 4: click on Lyric Show 3 selection in the menu
STEP 5: use the settings: [x] Forced layout, Left 'blank', Top '31', Width '%_width%', Height '$sub(%_height%,66)', [x] Hide panel on startup

(leave all other settings at default or blank, and the padding settings at default as well)

STEP 6: In the same window you should move to the 'Script' tab. Replace all instances of 'Lyric Show 2' with 'Lyric Show 3' (and i mean ALL of them or it will not work properly)
STEP 7: To get rid of the white background just right click on Lyrics Show 3 and click on panel preferences. In the menu select Background>Transparent.

that should be it, and you can still customize it to your liking

For an even easier fix that i just discovered, do steps 1-5, and then just change the caption of Lyric Show 3 to Lyric Show 2 in the Panel List tab. Doing this you do not have to edit the script.

I was having trouble with the Love button, it wouldn't work with latest versions of SoftPlaylist and also didn't support the Unlove feature.
Another major hickup was that even after setting API key/Username etc. everywhere, it would not create the necessary files at \foobar2000\skin\mono_lite_2\scripts\wsh_settings (or wsh_lastfm).
The latter problem I handled by copying the files myself (I had a redundant install of foobar elsewhere which had these files for monolite plus).

For the second, I tried my hand at modifying the script for Love button. I've added these features (required minor changes):
1. Works with latest foo_softplaylist
2. Can also Unlove a previously loved track

The script is here:

If any problems message me!
Also hope this is OK with the skin/script developers!

Sorry for the long delay.
Just middle click on the "Love" button, it should open up the configuration window. Remove everything and paste the entire script there. That should work.
