Project "Rebirth of Azure Dragon"-Status Shut Down due to lack of time

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter

Azure Dragons-They are one of only three 10th-tier creatures in the game, ranked alongside Crystal Dragons and Rust Dragons, though easily more powerful than either. Incidentially, they are also by far the most expensive units in the Heroes series, costing an enormous amount of gold and mercury. (Heroes Might and Magic)

So... I want to start a threat and update it while i will be doing my first water coolling (WC) with cable sleeving and palying with lights
Basicly, there is two reasons behind it:
First and far most, I would like opinion of the people on my progress and correction(and 99% they will need to be in place) so I wont flud my "little" trustfund wink.gif
Secondly, it might help someone.... I hope whistle.gif

Basically, the yellow going to the Female connector has to come off the opposite side of the switch from the male connector's yellow.
