Topic: EQ/Stems
bogartPRO InfinityMember since 2004
On the new version the pro skin does not show the small arrow to change from eq to stems.
This skin was previously edited to show the comments next to the artist when loaded onto a deck.
I don't believe this would have any thing to do with this.
Re installed the new version and still the same.

If you use an edited skin of vdj2020, it will indeed not show the features of vdj2021.

What we recommend in this case, if your edit was simple, is just edit again the default skin of vdj2021, and use a compare utility (for example this or any other similar) to check the difference between your edited 2020 version, and the new 2021 version, to quickly copy over the changes you made.

I tried to edit, however there is nothing there when I open for editing.

That may well have been modified by me...

You gave me the info on how to do it.
I finally got it opened within VDJ. The default skin shows the edited portion.
So does the one saved as Default (edit)
PS: Where are the skins for 2021 stored. Everything I have is still showing 2019

They're stored within the VDJ software (where it says default at the top of the skin list).

To edit, you need to select it and click the 'edit this skin' link, which then creates an extracted default skin.

Any changes you make will be to the extracted edit, not the built in skin (which is a fixed thing).

Yep that;s where I did it previously.
Now when I go to the skins Default & Default (edit)
they both show the same changes from
<text fontsize="15" color="feat" action="get_featuring_after_artist" important="true"/>
To:
<text fontsize="15" color="feat" format=" %comment" important="true"/>
Don't see why both are showing the same thing.
Only difference is the defaulty skin does not show the comments like the edited on.

I think if you've already got a 'default edit' folder then VDJ will not overwrite it with a new one.

In other words, if you made an edit of the old 2020 default skin, then trying to extract the new default will not work because there's already a folder with that name.

So if your old modified skin is in the 'default edit' folder, change the name of that folder, then extract the new default skin again (which will make a new default edit folder).

Got it? :-)

Where would the folder be that you are talking about?
I edited it from the VDJ program.
When editing within VDJ it only has option to delete or show file

It's in the skins folder...

For Windows C:\Users\your windows user name\Documents\VirtualDJ\Skins

That's the folder I mentioned before. The skin shows 2019.
Also only shows Default.

Posted Wed 01 Jul 20 @ 8:29 pm
Yes the name of the folder (in the skins directory) is 'default'. In VDJ that's what shows as 'default(edit)'.

If your old skin with the comment mod is in there, rename the folder to something else i.e. My Old Skin.

Then back in VDJ, highlight the built in default skin and click the edit link. That will make a new 'default' folder with the 2021 skin inside.

That works. Thank a bunch.
Sorry to so thick headed about this.

Posted Wed 01 Jul 20 @ 8:44 pm
So you've got comments in the new 2021 skin?

Well done!

I Lied. Not perfect.
The left deck is fine, but the right deck still only
shows the title & artist.

Posted Wed 01 Jul 20 @ 8:52 pm
There are four of those lines in the Pro.xml

Posted Wed 01 Jul 20 @ 8:58 pm
bogartPRO InfinityMember since 2004
Yes I remember. I edited the skin 2 more times before it works.
Now it works fine.

Again THANKS. I appreciate your help
