The text is done manually...one by one, line by line. It is a very realistic render. I have a more advanced version which animates and at the same time will display suspended words...all in plain batch.

hey when i try to change the file type it dosn't work

user

 save it as your name here.bat don't forget the extension.

when i click it it opens a window but then closes it almost instantly. help

make sure you put the "goto start" at the end of your program look at my 2nd instructable for a more in depth of how it works

i did that but it still wont work. i even tried it on multiple computers

make sure youre running it from within the cmd prompt window
