Does it not work "out of the box" with XBMC?

It's a great tool as you can drag and drop, copy and paste and move items around in the graphical view to suit your needs.

Regards.

Nope, tried loading an XBMC skin folder and nothing happened. Sad

Hmmm...I tried loading the Rapier skin after changing the directory structure to be the same as the MediaPortal skins, but unfortunately no joy.

I'm pretty sure that the app could be modified to load XBMC skins but it needs someone who is competent with C++ to work on it...unfortunately this isn't my forte.

Maybe tiben20 or another XBMC member could get involved? Also, maybe it needs to be posted on a general forum for more to be aware of the app and, hopefully, pursue it?

Regards.

i looked at the print screen of the application and i really don't think this is done in c++. It look a lot like a c# or vb.net application.

Hmm, maybe pulling all the plain text labels to a file for translation and replacing them with a unique $localize.

Did you download Notepad ++ from this link?
Also, once installed you can update the program to use other plugins that are useful too. See this link.

Once you have installed Notepad ++, go to the program directory and look for the subdirectory "plugins." Drop the skin editor dll into this directory and restart notepad ++. You will see the XBMC plugins in the XBMC section.

The exception details are as follows:

Does sombody know how to fix this? Am I doing something wrong? I go to plugins in Notepad++ and open "Xbmc Tester" and double click on "Extract xbt"

Hope someone can help me!

A few questions, what windows OS is required for this to run, which version of notepad++, and other than installing notepad++ and then downloading the plugin dll then putting it in the notepad++ plugins folder, are there any other install requirements? Trying to install on a windows XP system.

I have tried notepad++ vers 5.8.7 and 5.9, the last two revisions at sourceforge, and both complain that the xbmc plugin is not compatible with the version of notepad++, then disables/removes it. Any ideas?

Thanks,

The plugin works when notepad++ is installed on a windows 7 system.

Found the function, but it crashes Notepad++, tried the newest version and a much older version of NP++ with the same result Undecided

The answer was in the other thread, the image preview window needs to be open before starting extraction.

Hello,

I am trying to extract a "Textures.tbt" file using this Notepad++ plug in and I have image previewer open and I go to the Extract tbt command and select file and output folder but nothing happens.

Any Ideas?

Notepad++: v6.3
plug-in: XbmcSkinPlugin 003

win 7 Ultimate x64

any help would be appreciated.

EDIT:
Now it works, for good measure I downloaded from sourceforge notepad++ v5.9 , then opened the textures.xbt, then opened Image Previewer, then went to command Extract xbt and selected output folder and it worked!

I feel stupid but how do you use this?

Edit:

Figured it out..nevermind...question, is there a way to see original directory structure of the images so that I can place them without having to recompile the xbt file?
