Create themes for KBFX

Theme HowTo for KBFX

Since you found this page I'll think that you are interested in how to make own themes for KBFX Well actually to make themes for KBFX is very simple.

We have added a lot of new features to this version so they give you a full control over your menu as you want it. So let's get started.
Let's begin to look at this picture. Take a little while to see the descriptions of the different images because this will help you a lot when you are going to make your own themes.

This image is telling all the images which are used in KBFX except one "mask.png" image. We will explain what that image does a little bit later.
The most simple way to create a theme at this point is to take some of those images and just change colors on some and see how that effects your menu.
Don't forget before that to backup the original images if you want to use your original theme.

To make your life and ours as simple as possible we will just explain what different images do and how they work and of course their suggested sizes.
Let's jump to the description of the images.

Images in KBFX

This is an image that is at the top of the menu.
