Starting with version 4.0, cFos automatically installs our standard skin, a visual design that determines how cFos status information is being displayed on your computer. All cFosSpeed versions do also come with their own standard skins. Still, you are free to modify and change them to better suit your own needs and aesthetic preferences. In fact, we strongly encourage you to send us your own custom designs and share them with others!
This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating a new basic skin. Do note that most of the graphics used for this are already part of your cFos/cFosSpeed distribution, which is why the focus will be on teaching you several ways to integrate them into your own design.
Hint: When working on your skin, you may want to activate the cFosSpeed "test mode." This will provide you with a quick and easy way to check if everything is working properly and in the right place.
(See the skin definition reference for details on skin testing.)
