[Windows] Kodi - Texture Tool (.xbt) - supp - 2014-08-11

Image
 
until now, there wasn't a way to decompile any texture files (.xbt) without the notepad ++ plugin.
based on this, there was also a graphical user interface missing for texturepacker, so i came to the decision to code the "Kodi - Texture Tool" that will support both features included with a GUI.

the tool is based on tiben20's command line extractor and Texturepacker, that only support cli.
If you're using Version 2.5.4 and above you will get further updates automatically by starting the tool.
Dev Mode is now available by using Shift+alt+d.
 
For more Informations check the Kodi Wiki Article here!
 
It's actually pretty simple to use it:

How to decompile:

1. Select Source File.
2. Select Destination Dir
3. Press Start
4. Wait until done.

How to compile:

1. Select source

Works perfectly for me, thanks! I was using the Notepad++ extractor but I found it a little temperamental on occasion.


RE: [Windows] Kodi XBMC - Texture Extraction (.xbt) - supp - 2014-08-12

thanks for your feedback ! Next step i will include the texturepacker mode, so that there is one tool with both functions


RE: [Windows] Kodi XBMC - Texture Extraction (.xbt) - Martijn - 2014-08-12

you know that nearly every single skin out there can be found unpacked? Smile
except some commercial ones i guess but we don't host/provide those.

still nice to see a tool out there just in case


RE: [Windows] Kodi XBMC - Texture Extraction (.xbt) - supp - 2014-08-12

sure i know that Wink but in my case there were backgrounds in the textures.xbt media subfolder and i wanted to change them with personal one.
the feature was not given in the skin yet so i had to do this manually by extracting the .xbt file and compile it new

// edit

released v.1.2

hi. tested ur app & my designated folder popped up at the end of the process, but nothing extracted. any ideas?


RE: [Windows] Kodi XBMC - Texture Tool (.xbt) - supp - 2014-08-12

seems to be an issue with the file then, can you upload me the file somewhere that i can give it a try in debug mode?

dont kno how to upload on forum here. i tested 3 random xbt files, but no extraction. i used random xbt files from MQ5 media case tread to test out ur app.


RE: [Windows] Kodi XBMC - Texture Tool (.xbt) - supp - 2014-08-12

took the textures.xbt of the latest Aeon MQ5 version and no problems with extracting.

Maybe there is an issue with the Source or Destination, CLI might have problems with source/destination

copy textures.xbt to desktop as source and create a new destination folder and give this a try please.

anyone else with those issues, yet?

tried what u suggested, but still no extraction. this should be an easy& simple process tho. but it doesn't work for me.


RE: [Windows] Kodi XBMC - Texture Tool (.xbt) - Ic3y - 2014-08-21

Great tool, but unfortunately it only partially worked for me. Had to use the command line to create a fully working .xbt file.


RE: [Windows] Kodi XBMC - Texture Tool (.xbt) - Ram2000 - 2014-08-27

just had to say thank you works a treat win8.1 64b

Are you using x64 or x86 Windows? Not able to test it on 32bit systems right now, but it seems that this might be the problem here

great stuff Wink


RE: [Windows] Kodi XBMC - Texture Tool (.xbt) - supp - 2014-09-04

released v 1.4

It seems that the CLI of Texturepacker isn't supporting any spaces in directory or folders like "new folder" so i coded a query for crosschecking the selected folder.
Maybe thats why some of you are getting those issues. Still not sure, need more feedback Smile
