Xbox game cover thumbnail setup

Post by gametime5 » Tue Sep 29, 2015 11:03 pm

Alright I've scoured the forum to see what needs to be done but I'm still confused. Most likely it's something very simple.

I have all the Xbox game covers downloaded onto my computer. Each cover is currently a .png file. From what I understand the name needs to be changed to default.tbn then FTP'd over and placed in the same folder as default.xbe for it to display properly.

I'm right clicking on the .png file I want to use and selecting rename. I rename it to default.tbn. However, the full file name comes out to be default.tbn.png. Is there a different way to change the file extension from .png to .tbn? Where am I messing up?

sounds to me like your computer is set to show file name only. it differs from os but is quite easy to find, in the options somewhere it will say display file extensions. This will then allow you to edit the files

Yep that worked. Just had to ftp the file over to the Xbox first then rename it. I knew it would be something simple I was missing. Thank you
