CMD Matrix Colors

Posted 14 February 2009 - 07:45 PM

I want to customize my CMD to look like the green color used in the Matrix for the Matrix's code. I am having trouble replicating this however, as the color seems to be bright as well as transparent. The way I am changing colors in my CMD is by right clicking the window, going to properties and then going to color where I can set the values for Red, Green, and Blue. If anyone knows if there are values I can plug in to look like the Matrix's Code color for Red, Green, and Blue or if there is another way to change the colors please let me know. Here is a youtube video that begins with the same colors I would like to have for my CMD's text --> http://www.youtube.c...h?v=--Wpz4NAHtY

This may help:

Sets the default console foreground and background colors.

COLOR [attr]

attr Specifies color attribute of console output

Color attributes are specified by TWO hex digits -- the first
corresponds to the background; the second the foreground. Each digit
can be any of the following values:

0 = Black 8 = Gray
1 = Blue 9 = Light Blue
2 = Green A = Light Green
3 = Aqua B = Light Aqua
4 = Red C = Light Red
5 = Purple D = Light Purple
6 = Yellow E = Light Yellow
7 = White F = Bright White

If no argument is given, this command restores the color to what it was
when CMD.EXE started. This value either comes from the current console
window, the /T command line switch or from the DefaultColor registry
value.

The COLOR command sets ERRORLEVEL to 1 if an attempt is made to execute
the COLOR command with a foreground and background color that are the
same.

Example: "COLOR fc" produces light red on bright white

That comes up whenever COLOR[] is typed into the CMD. I am not looking to set it to default colors but to matrix colors by using custom RGB values.
