Tron iTunes v1.5 by adorkableheart Tron iTunes v1.5 by adorkableheart
An updated version of my original Tron music player.
It's automatically set for iTunes, but it's fairly easy to change.

What's changed:
- Smaller buttons
- Smaller circle is now a power button, and will toggle open the music player (will only open it though, won't minimize the program)
- Track duration is smaller, thought it was too big in the last player
- Added a fancy function bar for the buttons

Same gig as before except I packaged it in the .rmskin format this time.
The font needed is included in the music folder. So just open it up and install. Easy peasy.

As always I love comments and suggestions so bring 'em on!
Enjoy the Grid!

==================================

UPDATE v1.5.5
- Power button now has a hover and click effect
- 'End of Line' phrase can now be edited

I changed the PlayerName to Spotify so it works with Spotify, but it doesn't show the track, artist, or song progression. Any ideas? :3

I've noticed a few people asking about changing the color. If you're just looking to change the font color to something different, then you can do so by changing the FontColor variable to your desired colors RGB code.

Ex. "FontColor=FFFFFFFF" is changed to "FontColor=164,255,255,255" for a light sky blue color instead of white.

Aside from changing font color, as mentioned by others, you'll have to use another program such as photoshop.

Love the look of this, one quick question though.

I have it set up to open my itunes, however it doesn't show what's playing in the window, and the skip, play, and back buttons aren't working. What am I missing? The only line I've changed is PlayerPath, so I am sure I am missing something.

I'm sorry that's my bad, it's been a year and I'm still trying to understand this, but you don't need to change PlayerPath, just leave that empty. As long as it looks like this:

[mPlayer]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=NowPlaying.dll
PlayerName=iTunes
PlayerType=TITLE
PlayerPath=
DisableLeadingZero=1

Everything should work fine. Hope this helps!

Oh and the stupid smiley face is "Measure = Plugin" but with no spaces or quotation marks.

Hey sorry for the late reply! All you need to do to change player types is change the player name. Here is a link that has a list of all the different types of player names and what to properly enter into the PlayerName line so it works correctly. 


The list is halfway down the page under 'Fully Supported Players'. Good luck!

If you have Photoshop or something similar, you can change the color to whatever you would need; usually. That's what I did with another skin and I added a glow effect with Trapcode. Now, I can't say for sure this will work on this file as I'm stuck at work but thought I'd give you a shout to see IF it might help. :D

Hey thanks for helping! Yes, it will be easier if you have photoshop, or you could try gimp, since that's free and just as good. Unfortunately, unless there are a lot of requests for a different color, I don't have too much free time just to change it for one person. Sorry!

How does progression bar and duration work with spotify?

Thank you! :)

Hmmm. I'm not sure, as I don't use Spotify, but if you simply change the PlayerName=iTunes to PlayerName=Spotify, save and refresh the skin, you can see how it works. Let me know if it does!

Just started working on piecing together a rainmeter desktop for myself yesterday and have been browsing for music player skins that fit into my sci-fi theme and that work for iTunes. This one does both and is a godsend! Thank you!

My only question is (and it's probably because I'm a complete noob at this), but is there (a) a way to change the "End of Line" text or get rid of it on the skin itself? And (b) is there a way to change the font? I've tried editing the file and changing the fontface to gliscor gothic (the font used in the rest of my UI currently) but it doesn't seem to do, well, anything. Any help is greatly appreciated! :D

In order to change the text you have to change what is written next to text under the label heading in the notepad file that comes in the folder. Just change it from End of Line to whatever you want, you can also change the font face, color and size in the same heading. Hope this helps.

Oh, and if there's a way to change the colours easily (want to change the white sections to grey to better fit) that would be awesome as well :D

Bane I'd try Photoshop if you have access to that to change the coloring. Rather easy to do even if you're new to using it.

You're quite welcome! There is no way to change the text. You could open the file in photoshop (or paint - if you must) and just edit out the font yourself. Just remember to save it as a png or it won't be transparent. I'm still learning the coding ropes myself so don't worry. If you change the font name from "HandelGotD" to "gliscor gothic", save the file, and then refresh the player, it should immediately change. Just right click the player skin, and you'll see a "Refresh Skin" option. I hope that helps! And as for the color change, you could edit it yourself if you want, I'm not sure about an easy way to change it. I'd have to look into it more. And sorry it took so long to reply!

Thanks! The player just the displays the Track name and Artist name. The 'End of Line' part is just reference to the club in Tron Legacy. I would never dare to get a Daft Punk album incorrect ;D
