Default Zune Software Customizer 3.1.1

It's been a while, but hopefully it'll be worth the wait as this release has quite a few new features and bugfixes. As you can see by this release I am certainly open for new ideas, so if you have any feature requests feel free to submit a comment. As some of you saw, I reorganized the blog so there is a dedicated projects area which I'd recommend people look at although I do post the direct link to the file in my blog if you don't want to be bothered/know what you are doing.

Zune Software Customizer Version 3.1.1 | MJefferson.net

Changes:
  • Added a Now Playing specific section to the Display-> Settings menu with the following features:
    • Options to set the Now Playing Background Image to something other than the default Grid View.
    • Added a option to make the Now Playing Progress Bar slider scale to the window size.
    • Added a option to disable the artist imagery in the Now Playing View/Land. This will allow those with a custom background to have it always showing.
    • Moved the Custom Now Playing Font Size under this section.
  • Added Four Album Art Sliders for the following areas:
    • Now Playing View/Land
    • Now Playing Progress Bar
    • Albums View
    • Artists View
  • Increased the size of the custom color sliders
  • Changed the wording on the theme buttons so that all four buttons fit in the smallest window size possible.
  • Modified the installer so that it provides a little more guidance on what is happening and what to do if something goes wrong/isn't working. Also now the installer will automatically close the Zune Software if it is open.
Bugfixes:
  • Fixed list item colors in numerous spots (Purchases/Download History, Top X Lists, etc.).
  • Fixed all color problems that I was made aware of (MarketplacePageTitle, ListItemSelectedBackground, ListItemBackground) along with a few others (ColumnDivider, ScrollBarThumb, ScrollBarBackground, ScrollPath, TransportButton, TransportButtonHoverColor, and many others).
  • Fixed it so the text under the custom color sliders updates correctly.
  • Fixed the explicit warning message so that it displays correctly for dark themes.

As always any feature requests, comments, etc are welcome. Didn't know if I should create a new thread, so if I shouldn't have please merge this with the old one.

I also put some images up for the latest additions on my blog, didn't want to post them in this thread cause they are rather large.

Its fine here. Nice going with the follow-up. For future reference, do you need to uninstall the old customizer first?

No you don't although I probably should have the installer uninstall the old version first. The only problem I could see is if someone installs overtop of a old install the way it currently works when you uninstall I believe it will only uninstall the current one and leave you back with the old one (if that makes sense). Maybe a example would work better.

Person installs 3.1.1 over 3.1.0 version without uninstalling
Person uninstalls 3.1.1, instead of going back to the original I believe it would go back to 3.1.0.

I'll have to take a look into that.

I loved the last one, and this one looks even cooler. Too bad I'll need admin access again...

This is basically a software that does what my post does... but nicer. I would actually like to know how you interface with the .dll file.

When you run the installer it asks you for the Zune Software's Directory path so all you should have had to do was point it to the right folder if it was different then the default. It defaults to C:\Program Files\Zune. I'm glad you got it working.

hey sable, this is slightly off topic, but I noticed that the text for the album (while the album is selected, on the far right) seems to change with your software. This is also the font that determines the color of options (such as display themes) in the settings area. Could you tell me what color modifies this?

I would appreciate it, thanks

i had pointed it to the folder but when it installed it put it inside the folder in a folder labeled zune so it looked like this D:\zune program\Zune

You should try uninstalling the Zune Software Customizer, see if the problem persists, and take action from there.
If the issue still occurs, uninstall and reinstall the software

If it does not occur, try reinstalling the customizer. Maybe your settings messed something up.
