Changing menu item names (PM3)

Post by sealeysonic » Sat Feb 13, 2016 9:55 am

Hi all.....hope were all ok.......?

What i want to do is change what the menu on PM3 say.....like changing "pictures" to "photos"

Ive changed the font and a few textures too.....(while i was bored)

Ive done it before a long time ago and think i did it in the "home.xml" but can no remember what i did.

<control type="button" id="4">
<description>My Pictures normal push button</description>
<posx>54</posx>
<posy>163</posy>
<width>14</width>
<height>13</height>
<hitrect x="45" y="150" w="170" h="40" />
<label>1</label>
<onclick>ActivateWindow(MyPictures)</onclick>
<font>special13</font>
<onleft>98</onleft>
<onright>96</onright>
<onup>3</onup>
<ondown>7</ondown>
<texturefocus>home-focus.gif</texturefocus>
<texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
<textoffsetx>30</textoffsetx>

Or you could try changing the text in the resources. Do you see that

Code: Select all

<label>1</label>
Go to Q:\language\English\strings.po (or English (US) depending on whichever language you configured to use), look for:

Code: Select all

msgctxt "#1"

and change from

Code: Select all

msgid "Pictures"
to

Code: Select all

msgid "Photos"
It will do it throughout XBMC4Xbox in all skins and all places where it uses text resource #1.
