How to make use of the XBT File in Kodi Part 3


Welcome back to the 3rd Part of this Tutorial about the XBT File with in Kodi.


If you missed Part 1 you can find it HERE

If you missed Part 2 you can find it HERE


In this part i will show you how to CREATE your NEW .xbt file and put it in your BUILD.


In Part 2 we Created these two different looking .PNG files.


First we will use the Green looking file and see what Happened………………

OK with the file in place with the rest of all the other files we need to OPEN our Texture Tool.

And this time we are going to use the Bottom section of the Tool.

And we are going to select the Input Folder.

The Input folder is were your new File is.

In my case it is in the “blogxbt” Folder.

Now lets section Output Folder.

And again it will be in the “blogxbt” Folder.

You will see i already have a .xbt file there SO when we create out NEW File it will replace the existing .xbt File.

And you will also see that it has the same FILE name.

So if we are all OK with this then CLICK SAVE.


Now to create the new file by hitting START.

You will see the Progress Bar start to Move so there fore it is creating a new XBT File for you.

OK now we have our New Texture.xbt file, We can transfer it to our KODI aeon nox folder.

This is basically a “COPY” and “PASTE” exercise.

Right click the file and click on Copy.

Now lets go to our Kodi Folder you will find the Root path in PART 1

So all we need to do is paste it.

You should see this Prompt when you Right click to paste.

Click on the “Replace the file in the Destination and you will see it over riding your existing file.

So its time to see what we Created.

So if we open Kodi and head over to “System” click on it and in here is were the listpanel_back.png file will have made the changes.

As i said earlier i have NO idea on what this is going to look like as it was only for tutorial purposes.

Lets see………………

Well,…..its not my cup of Tea but at least you now know how to change some of the interface with in Kodi.

And this was the BFK Logo one we created.

There you have it so its time to get your artistic skills going and create yourself a new looking Build.

It would take me for every to do tutorials on every file in the Texture.xbt so If need help OR want something blogging on a certain file then let me know.

Just give me a shout on Twitter HERE

And i will see what i can do for you.

Ok theres 1 more tutorial after this and that will be renaming the file and where to find it in Kodi.

Hope you have a great time creating with the xbt file i will be watching out for all you Budding Skinners/Builders.

Till next time Be good.
