Good tutorial Demon, as always you out do yourself. Keep up the good work. Have you or anyone figuered out how to change the main MCE logo (attachment 1)? I also attached a screenshot with my new logo. It is the flag of my country of birth floating above the coat of arms of my birth country as well.

Love the tutorial DemonSeed. Though, I'm curious, how would you go about changing everything else? Such as the blue standard background, and with the black one you had?

If I get the chance, I'll totally make a SevenForums skin. My work in photoshop ain't a superstar, but I'll work with some other fancy graphics people and see if we can't get somethin' going. :]

Should ask them to stick this in the tutorial section. Its soapurb (superb).

The original author of the theme I'm using has taken the theme down for one reason or another. So I have put it up Here for anyone that may want it. Its Astrotoy's Transparent Black Theme for 7MC x64.
Instructions to install it are included.
