Skinning for beginners - Foundation skin, skinning tools, and tips

Foundation skin: Updated for Eden

Foundation is a very simple but fully functional skin designed to be used as either a base for creating new skins or as a learning tool for anyone interested in what makes a skin work.

It comes with both 720p & 1080i coded XML's and I've also included a screen shot folder of every window/dialog XBMC uses to make things even easier.

To get the most out of it you'll need to either make a new keymap.xml or add this to your existing one -

PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
            <F8>Notification(Testing 123,Hello world)</F8>

F5 - Reload skin
F6 - Show/Hide the Debug Grid
F7 - Show/Hide the Debug Info
F8 - Activated the KaiDialogToast.xml

Frodo download
