Hope we are all doing well. Here is a short and sweet way on How to change Backgrounds in Wookie Retro 16 and 17.
So the first question is where have you put your backgrounds to use on Wookie Retro?. The normal two places would be 1 – in the builds Backgrounds folder OR in the kodi userData folder so what ever your preference here is how to change the backgrounds and find them folders with in the Retro build.
So first we need to go to System.
Then Skin Settings.
Make sure Backgrounds is highlighted.
Where it has Background Path: that is where you navigate with the UP/DOWN arrows to select the desired background you wish to change.
So select the background you want to change then click on the Single Image Tab at the top.
This in turn will take you to the Folder with in the skin of this build so if that is where you have placed your re-placement background then this is where you will find the new background. so all you need to do is go into that folder and find your new background.
And as the screenshot shows below that BOB is the background in use at the moment on the Wookie Retro Build.
If however you have made a folder in the userdata folder for your backgrounds then this is how to get to that required folder.
Make sure you tick the “Use alternative background folder”.
And this time it will show you a different root path. So what we need is the Home folder.
Then UserData Folder as thats where we made a folder for the backgrounds.
Click Backgrounds and for the purpose of this Tutorial i have put 1 background in here just to show you.
And there is what i want to replace the one in the build with, So just click you image and it will reset to that.
As you can see below that it has replaced the BOB image and replaced it with my new one.
So if we go back to the main screen and there it is under the BOB section.
So there you have it that’s how to change the Backgrounds in the Wookie Retro Build on Kodi 16 and 17.
