Full Version: Add Media Folder To Official Amber Releases

Can the media folder that is stored on skin.amber-master be merged into the official Amber releases? I've been reworking the poster and thumbnails within the media/thumbs folder to replace the standard grey folder defaults and think it is an improvement as seen below. I'm working with an older master release and can not install the current master due to dependencies not being met. Hoping you can open the media folder for Amber users to further the ability to customize the skin on all future releases.

Hi,

The media folder is already included in the official release but it is automatically compressed and optimised using TexturePacker http://kodi.wiki/view/TexturePacker as part of the release process.

You can use the utility to extract the xbt file, replace the images you want and then repack it again but you will need to overwrite it after every release.

Understood about having to overwrite files as I'm up to eleven total as of now. I was succesful in overwriting the Textures.xbt file using the [Windows] Kodi - Texture Tool (.xbt). Thanks for the tip.
