Hey guys!

I need a little help with what the Dark C0d3r case-mod theme will be, I'm pretty clueless on what color(s) I should use!!

So if anyone can suggest a theme, please do so on this thread!



THANKS OCN!

Well I've decided the case colour theme!

A friend suggested purple and black, so... purple and black!


PURPLE & BLACK



Yummy

Subbed, can't wait to see the thing done


It's like it's made for modding, has the pure minimum for a good case, yet there's a lot things you can do to it ^_^

Okay I've gotten around for some progress.

Oh by the way, I will be now posting images on Google's Blogger, simply because it has a better interface and I can upload more than 40 images... yeaaaaaaa.

So yea just go on it for updates.
Go on the left panel for the list of updates, they would have "DarkC0der" written their titles.

Thanks guys.

Don't worry my friend is fixing up a better one soon for me. He's a ripper of a Photoshopper (can be bad and good).

You can find some awesome fonts on DaFont.

As Reflux said, comic sans don't work that good on the case, but then again it's your case so it's up to you.

Still nice ideas tho

Comic sans =/= script font that he has used.


I'd say the fonts already installed on windows are good enough.
(and then add helvetica, avant garde, museo, univers
)
