How to Make a Matrix Batch File





Introduction: How to Make a Matrix Batch File

This batch file will give out random green numbers that resemble the background to "The Matrix"
theres really no point to it except to look cool

Step 1: Creating the Batch File

right click
>>text document

rename "matrix.bat"
>click yes

should change icon to a gear

Step 2: Programing the File

right click

it should have opened notepad

copy and paste in between the lines

@echo off
color 2
echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%
goto start


double click and it should create the matrix

Step 3: Additional Creativity to Your Matrix

you can change the color code to make the background and numbers a different color

right now the color code is "2" which can also be written as "02"
its still the same number

"0" make the background black and the "2" makes the numbers green

if you change the code to 15
background would be blue and numbers would be pink

or if you change the code to 47
background would be red numbers would be white

if you wanted to change what the text said just get rid of the "%random%"s and add a bunch of writing.
in the example i wrote "MatrixEagle15" (17 times to get the blur effect)

    I'm using windows vista. the file type doesnt change from .txt to .bat how do i fix this?

    make sure that under the area where you write the file name you select all files instead of text file also make sure to end the file name with .bat example

    ---> matrix.bat

    goto your files and where it says .txt change it to .bat like your renameing it

    save it as matrix.bat then exit then open notepad>file>open>Change "text documents" to "All Files" and you should find it. right click the batch file>send to>desktop


    make the text document, open it, save as Matrix.bat it should work then. the reason it didnt work was because you dont have the "show file type" on. to turn it on go to a folder (any one) go to the tools drop menu, then folder options, then click the "view" tab, and scroll down till you see a check box that says "hide extensions for known file types" and uncheck it.

    how can i adjust the speed of moving , en make sound

    Batch files dont make sound. It runs a code. Thats all

    You said the icon is supposed to change? It didn't change so what do I do? Am I doing something wrong?

    every time I try to add in words save it and open it in cmd.exe it always says "Echo is off." what do I do?
